Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in S/W Vermilion County, Illinois, and served in the U.S. Army from 1963-1966. After the military I worked sometime with Frasca Aviation (then located at the corner of Green and Neil Streets, Champaign). I retired from the Champaign Police Department in 1998, having served 30 years. My interest in local history led to a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published on the local masonic lodge and city police department. These interests led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries. If you note any errors or changes necessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries. I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds and Buckles. Most were from south and west central Indiana. If you are a relative (within three generations)I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries, also through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.

RE: Henry Wesley Heubner
David -

I am happy to transfer Henry's memorial to you as you are much more closely related than I. I'm only his 4th cousin so you and I are 4th cousins once removed. I have more information about the Huebner family if you are interested. You can email me directly at

Can you please change the spelling of this couple's last name? I just added a record because I could not find them. Thank you.
I will delete my record I created for Elsie O'Loughlin.

wife of Wayne Andrew Johnston
Thank you for all you work! You have helped me branch out my family tree.
There is a correction needed on the obit of Wayne Andrew Johnston. His wife was Blanche Lawson (not Dawson). Her parents were Ida Jane (White) Lawson and William V. Lawson. Blanche is a niece of my great-grandmother, Estella M. (White) Engmark Bodishbaugh. (Ida Jane White being the sister of my great-grandmother).
Thank you very much for all you have done!!

Thank you for the transfer of relative George Warmoth. I will add the information I have and hopefully track down burial location of his parents in the near future.

RE: William Blaricum
I have just received a correction from another contributor with the same spelling of the last name as you had. So apparently that was correct.

Please add your tombstone photo to my memorial #107272813.

We all want to be as correct as possible!

Thank you!

RE: William Blaricum
I noticed you mentioned East Lawn Cemetery, but the obit mentions Urbana cemetery. Sometimes the obits have the names spelled wrong. I usually go with what is on the tombstone, if I have the photo.

If you feel this is the same person, please send in an edit for the correction of the spelling of the name and burial location. And please add the tombstone photo.

Thanks for these considerations!
