Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi there! I have been doing genealogical research on my own family for about three years now, and I am hooked! I absolutely love uncovering more information about my ancesters! I have to squeeze in this new hobby as I don't have a lot of time to devote to it, or at least as much as I would like! :) I am married to my best friend, have four grown children, two grown stepsons, 9 grandchildren, work full-time, volunteer as a Sunday School teacher, and now volunteer as a find a grave photographer. So, needless to say, life is pretty interesting! I am very blessed to have such a full life. I love helping others, so if there is anything I can do to help a fellow genealogist, just let me know. I am as accurate and thorough as I can be with valuable information, and I take the best photos I can get of the gravesite. God bless you! Connie

RE: James McReynolds
I believe you sent a request for the headstone photo of James M. McReynolds (in Marrowbone Cemetery, Bethany, Moultrie County, IL). I did find the headstone for James V. McReynolds, but not James M. McReynolds.

I am going to try to get out to the cemetery tomorrow (or Sunday) to verify, but I believe the findagrave memorial may have been created from the transcription book published in 1972 by the Decatur Genealogical Society (and the update in 1998 was copied by the original publication since there were only a couple new burials in the old section). I am in the process of going through the information on the record cards from the Cemetery office -- and the entry for James M. McReynolds in the transcription book fits the information for "James M. Smith" on our cards (same for Clara McReynolds should be Clara Smith). SO, Long story short, I will go out to the cemetery to verify if this specific location is a James & Clara SMITH or James & Clara McREYNOLDS. Also, the photo for James V. McReynolds has been uploaded to the correct memorial. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly at

RE: McReynolds-Wear Family
I did find a Weir/Wear connection to the Fair family. Sarah's nephew, Ranking Young Wear, son of David Milton Wear was married to Serena Frances Fair daughter of John and Louisa Sharp Fair. I found this in a book on the Weir family, it's called "Weir/Wear Families, From Here & There to the White House," Compiled by Olga Jones Edwards and JoAnn Wear Spore. I'll keep looking.

RE: McReynolds-Wear Family
I am a descendant of the McReynolds and Weir (like contraction "we're" not "ware") families but have not found any that had indentured servants in my direct line. If you tell me your ancestors name, I'll see what I can find.

RE: Mc
Hi Connie, my grandfather was Robert A, his father Robert G with his father Robert Joseph my 2nd Great Grandfather and Sarah Mary Elizabeth Weir was my 2nd Great Grandmother. I don't remember all the history so will have to do some checking. My Dad started the family history and my mother is the McReynolds. My sister and I took over after our Dad passed away. Would love trading information. My email address is

RE: Sarah Wear McReynolds
Hi Connie, I'm not near my Computer right now to look up the information. I've started a Wear page on Facebook. I'm not much of a facebook person but found it a better way to get in touch with family members. If you'll look up this page "Our Wear Family" or Cindy Munson there are a lot of Wears on there that may have more info. then me. Some are Direct descendants to those Wears.

Connie, my sincere thanks for making the effort & taking the picture of my great-grandfather's grave stone. His daughter, Angelika Theresa Louise Bornhauser Kyle (my paternal grandmother) was estranged from her birth family. Therefore, we have very little info/connection to them. Thank you for helping us link to our roots.
