Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Haynes Cemetery, Pekin
Thank you for your work at the Rankin-Haynes Cemetery in Cincinnati Township, (Pekin), Tazewell County. Your efforts saved me the trip from Virginia. Thanks!

Henry C. Eichelberger photo
May I use Henry C. and Mary Egli Eichelberger's gravestone photo in a family project I am doing for one of their descendants?

I appreciate all of the work you have done for the project.
