Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised and live in beautiful Northwestern Illinois. I love searching through old cemeteries for my family and helping others find theirs. I hope to get photos taken at many of the area cemeteries and posted on Find A Grave, as time permits. I am our family genealogist and love history and antiquing.

Some of the family surnames I am researching: Lyon/Lyons, Johnson, Finkenbinder, Ortmeier, Knauer, Miller, Manion, Vertrees, Goodmiller, Machamer, Culbertson, Krugjohann, Handel, Schleuning, Oldham, Layman, Nalley, Millet, Edwards, Keck, Stone, Dubs, Lehman/Lehmann, Throne, Long, Clay, DeLong, Keeler

On my husbands side: Groezinger, Koepp, Gerner, Slonecker, Mapes, Osterday, Justus, Byrum, Beardsley

Hugh Badger
Thanks for transferring Hugh to me. He has been reunited with his wife. Sharon

RE: Handel photos
Sandy, it is often that I photograph a marker and find family members that a requester did not know of. While it is fun to fulfill a request, it is far more satisfying to connect people with a family story. I am glad I could help. jim

I would like to link Hugh Badger to his wife. Would you like to transfer him to me? Or I can send you the information. Just let me know your preference. Thanks! SharonLeeF

RE: Vi Mapes
Any time!

It is much easier for me to transfer than for me to correct or add, so I will never deny a request from anyone who knows more than I do!!!

Re: Your public message to me

"Erma was unlinked as a daughter to James Hiram. If you do every run across her parents, please lwt me know."



I found obits for the parents (with the cemetery name), and there are no current memorials for them. If you want PDF copies of the obits, I'll need your email address. My email address is on my profile, and of course, yours is hidden (or else I would have sent them to you already), so you'll need to contact me.

RE: Adalia Osborn
Adalia is distantly related to me. I appreciate the transfer offer but at my age it's probably better to let you take care of her.
