Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got interested in my geneology after I did some restoration on the Chapin plot.

Samuel Chapin ( in the plot ) was my three times great grandfather.Samuel was a Veteran of the Revolutionary and War of 1812.
Samuel's son James Corse, my twice great. I have yet to locate him or his death date.
James Corse's son Walter, my great.
Walter's son Frank, my grand.Walter was in the Civil War.
Frank's son Clayton, my father.

I have finished plotting the Oquawka Cemetery.
I have almost 3900 burials in a data base by plot number.
I can find any burial in a very short time now.
Some stones that were there in 1980, I can not find now.
If you need help finding someone, just let me know, I can help with that.

When ever possible I put the plot number in my memorials. I know this does most people no good, but it does help me locate them. There is no online map to the cemetery and until this year there was no map of what is called the West Addition. I made one. The cemetery association now has one and I have the original.

Thank you in advance for transferring any memorials to me.
It's nice to get them under one roof,so to speak.

If I can help you in any way,just ask and I'll try.
And any help you can give will be greatly appreciated,

Hi Ron, Would you consider transferring Ken Jern to me? I'd be honored to maintain his memorial. I have recently received transfer of Mary Helen Jern, too. Thanks so much, and hope you are doing well! -Laura #47165716

Do you have any idea if this is the husband of Susie B Thomas Speck Memorial# 101447304? I believe they are located in the same area. I have a daughter Ila Maude Speck Young Carriker
1926-2009 I would like to link if they are husband & wife. Do you know anything on them? The United States Census, 1930 lists them as married and the parents of 7 children.

RE: Julius Gifford obit
Would that be a Probate notice in newspaper if he
had any outstanding bills to please turn them into
the court system for payment?

RE: Julius Gifford obit
Thank you Ron for getting his obituary and putting it on his memorial site. I added Oquawka Cemetery
as place of burial since he was a city dweller and had contacts in Oquawka. I have no idea who the
men were in his Probate, friends?
Yes, please add him to your list in Oquawka Cemetery.
What other cemeteries are near by where he would
be buried?
Much appreciation for all your help.
