Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in genealogy and loved walking through cemetery's. While doing my family tree I found this site.
My husband is a great help to me since my main cemetery interest is in Land Between the Lakes on the Southern end. People were forced out of the area by the government to make it a public recreation area. Most of the cemeteries in the area can be traced back to the 1800's. The cemeteries have been neglected and vandalized.
Interest in Briggs, Cox, Wilks, Amster,Purnell, Kent, Sykes,Sikes, Wofford, and Russell.

Any of my personal family photo's I have decided to share on this site are NOT to be downloaded for any reason.

If I take a photo for you, you don't need my permission to download it and use it however you see fit.

Thank you!

John Tillman Sexton
Do you have numbers to link his parents or do you want me to just add their names? George William Sexton and Mother was Mary Ellen Anderson.

RE: Victoria Amster
Thank you so much, I appreciate your help. I found out recently that the wrong name for my mother was put on my adoption papers. Illinois now allows original birth certificates to be opened if the birth parents don't object, that was 2 years ago but I just found out in Oct. when I received mine I found out my mothers name was Virginia Conway.
Located the family but haven't contacted anyone yet, my mother passed in 2005.

Check Sarah Broom Stratton Strong 1839-4/30/1909 at Wildcat. I have a photo up but not sure if there are any others. I remember taking this one, it is enclosed next to Sanger, middle up on left of paved lane into cem. She is #54239968. I just gave it a quick look on f/g.

RE: Robert Purnell
You're welcome, Dot. I don't usually add a picture if there is already one there, but I thought in this case my picture was probably a little better so I did go ahead and add it.

Tellie Amster grave pic request
I visited Silver Lake Cemetery today and found that most of the area's stones are toppled. I do not want to leave a more detailed message in public, so please email me with your email address so I can give you more info. Thanks, TimV

RE: Daniel Purnell
Sure, and I forgot to answer "yes" to your using the Daniel Purnell photo. If there's a place for a photo credit, put "Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest. And please let me know if you find any family members with info on Daniel and Carrie.

Dot, thanks for your note. Do you know any of their direct descendants? I did post one photo on his F-A-G page.
