|Bio and Links|
I am a high school teacher and a history buff. I live a few blocks from Greenwood, Rockford's oldest and most historic cemetary. So now I carry a camera with me wherever I go so that I can add records to findagrave~ prominent local people, war veterans, interesting headstones, and of course, my own friends and family. |
I remember when I was a kid, my grandmother, Eva Powell Fuhr, would index cemetaries and research geneaology. She kept very meticulous records, on handwritten cards and notebooks. She wrote two family histories on an electric typewriter. She corresponded with people all over the world, and truly worked to get her information (This was back in the days before the internet). Grandma's research was her life's work and she was a proud DAR member. Grandma passed on in 1985, but she left behind a great deal of material. So whatever research I do now, I shall dedicate to her memory.
If I have listed someone from your own family, and you want to list it yourself, or you want to add something to their listing, just email me and we'll work it out. I don't mean to offend anybody. The memorials are made as a tribute to the deceased. All of whom were loved and have a story to tell.

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer Allen Truesdell Find A Grave Memorial# 26572106 and his wife Maria Find A Grave Memorial# 26572137
to me. They are my 3rd great grandparents.
I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your dedication!

Hi Mr. Fuhr. I think I found Joicy, wife of Charles Harrison Hevrin. I believe she is the Joicy Sutter who is buried next to him. I am checking with my mother and aunt. Thanks. Cheeky

Thank you so much - he is the brother of my maternal grandfather. I will let you know if I find more information about him or his wife. Do you remember where his grave is located in Greenwood? Again, thanks!
Many thanks for the transfer of Gertrude Barbour! Much appreciated.

Would you consider transferring Gertrude to me? She is my husband's great-great aunt, and I have more biographical information on her I would like to include. Her husband is William Barbour, and their two children are Blakeley and Mary Rebecca Barbour.
