Bio and Links
Bio Photo With the assistance of family, I'm walking along the genealogy path. Sometimes, it's a rough road, sifting through thousands of files looking for information on an ancestor, and sometimes the path seems to disappear when I can't find any information, but I keep walking. Thank you to FindAGrave -- you provide an excellent service and I'm so pleased that links to you. Thank you to all the volunteers who photograph graves -- your help is invaluable in creating fitting memorials to our loved ones.

RE: Ona Stueart
You are took a it of detective work lol. The index for the cemetery listed him as John Howard Stewart. We thought he was a woman also and looked up the death certificate to see if there was a maiden name...then discovered it was a man and found it under John Howard Stewart. Then when we found it...It had the other spelling and there was no John. He was the only one in the cemetery spelled that way.

I just received today the below letter stating that Virginia Woods is not buried in the Northern Lights Memorial Cemetery, Fairbanks, AK.

I replied asking Ms. Leetch if she knew where Virginia Woods WAS buried. The following is her response. Do you have confirmation that she is buried in NLMC? Thank you, Amy Caddell

""No, I do not know where she is buried, just that Northern Lights and Chapel of the Chimes have no record of her burial. Sorry.

I am very busy this time of year with Operation Christmas Child so I cannot research this now. There are two other cemeteries...

I did not know you had a photo request for Jesse when I added a couple newspaper clippings to his memorial!
You will have to resubmit the request.
I just happened on the blurbs while looking for something else and I recognized the name.
Jesse was quite the man around town!
The Creve Coeur Club still exists and is still what would be considered exclusive.

From their web site:

"In 1894, twelve prominent Peoria citizens met with the desire to create a Young Men's club that would promote the business interests of Peoria and enhance the social enjoyment of its members. The Club's name derives from an 1860 French settlement in the Peoria area, Fort Creve Coeur, which means "broken heart." The Club, now open to men and women, continues the original Club goal, distinguishing itself in social, civic and business leadership of the Peoria area."

I wonder if Jesse was one of the original twelve.
All the best,

Oh what a tangled web we weave....
I figure Jesse belongs in the hands of family!
BTTW, I noted on his death record, it gives his occupation as "capitalist".
All the best, Debra
