I have been fascinated by cemeteries since I was a kid. I grew up near the Old Baptist Cemetery in Hannibal - the one most people agree that Mark Twain used as a model for Tom Sawyer. That led me to other places. Over the years, I've explored a lot of cemeteries.|
Then, a few years ago, my mother got interested in geneology in a big way. She loved to research, and amassed a database of well-over 100,000 names. I'm now sorting through that database, and I've decided to help others in the same way.
So here I am, splitting my time between my own research, and documenting cemeteries in the area for other peoples' research. Let me know where you're looking, and I'll do my best to help. Feel free to use my images for your own geneology work - that includes using the images for Ancestry or Family Tree Maker. Please remember to give proper credit if you do any publishing. I prefer to be listed as Michael Mann, Quincy, IL

Thank-you so much for the pictures of the gravestones of William Patterson, wife Ann and daughter Ellen. Did you find them across from the caretaker cottage along the fence line? As you can tell,I looked ! Can I get those pictures to Ancestry? Sandy Franklin
Would you mind transferring MJ Roeschlaub to me?

Could you link her to her parents. Appears there is a pending edit which has been on it for 4 days so cannot post.

James Herrick, in Sunset Cemetery, Adams Co., IL is my great-great grandfather. Thank you so much for the photo you put up. I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer him to me so I may add his information and attach him to me family.

|Rosie II||RE: Obits in Bloomfield Cemetery|
Everyone needs to take a break once in a while; thanks for letting me know. Would you believe I've found a Civil War and Mexican War veteran in Bloomfield? You know you can copy/paste in the Bio, which makes it very easy and quick. You've done a lot of work for Bloomfield and saved me lots of entering time. I found a copy of early deaths and burials and have been working from that. That is the burial place for most of Daddy's Irish immigrants.
I think it's important to leave no ancestor unnoticed. The obit/bio makes them come 'alive' and helps us learn what their lives were like in helping develop and civilize this area. Thank you again for all your help.

|Rosie II||Obits in Bloomfield Cemetery|
Hi Michael, Is there any chance you will add the obits? I've been helping the cemetery sexton to get people entered from church death records and checking for obits. They're having a special celebration later this summer.
Thank you for your consideration and all you do for Find A Grave-ers.

My name is Jason and I wanted to send a quick "thank you" for the work you've done. I'm doing some genealogy research and I was able to link Rose M. and J. Fred Heckenkamp (my side of the family).

Thank you so much for taking a picture of her headstone and adding it her memorial on findagrave.com. It means so much to me.
All my best,
