|Having more fun walking the older areas of the cemeteries and thinking of the histories.|
I have photographed all of Oak Grove and more than half of Lakeside in Pekin, IL. There are alot of missing headstones and quite a bit that are unreadable. Getting what I can before they are gone.
I will transfer only within Find A Grave's guidelines. Though happy to add any information you have to the memorials. This is a memorial site, not a family genealogy site.
I also have spent many an hour walking the cemeteries and transcribing headstones that are hard to read. If you take any of the photos and place them on other sites such as Ancestry, at least make credit back to me. May sound selfish, but giving credit to someone for their work is only correct.

|MJI||RE: Tina Hilst|
The family's last name morphed over the years. The cemetery listing was compiled later on. P.J. (Peter John) & K.A. (Kathryn or Catherine or Kate Angeline or Angelina) Hulst (or Hilst) are my 2nd great grandparents. The tomb stones have the German spelling of their last name on the marker. The cemetery's listing shows the anglicized last name, Hilst, only because by the time it was complied no one in the Hulst family was using the German spelling any longer. The infant son, Peter J, was named after his father. His marker shows Hülst as the last name using the umlaut "u," which is the true German spelling. Tina, the infant daughter is named after grandmother Tena (or Thena), Kate's mother. Hope this helps!

|Gale Sharpe||Bishop Memorials, Woodrow Cemetery|
There are memorials from Woodrow Cemetery that are siblings to my great, great grandmother, Lucy Civilla Bishop. They are Cisley Caroline Bishop #84650019, Frederick Feliz Bishop #84651077, James Polk Bishop #84652030, Elijah F. Bishop #84650213, Edgar #84650386, Isaac #84650966, and Fleming #84650618. There were a total of 18 children born to William Fleming and Elizabeth Price Bishop. I have the names, dates of birth and dates of death for all of their children. I would like them added for the sake of accuracy. Would you please transfer these memorials to me so I can update the information? Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you so much for this virtual memorial. My parents were Eiko Seto Heselden and Frederick D. Heselden. Daddy's parents were Martha Gustoff Heselden and Charles Heselden. He also had a brother named Charles who died in early childhood. Eiko & Fred Heselden had 2 children: Ann Yoshie Heselden (married name Hill) and Jean Shizue Heselden. My daughter Mika Ann Pilacinski is their only grandchild.
