Bio and Links
Bio Photo Families that I'm researching include Lapham, Wixson, Hillyard-Hyliard, Jesseph, Rappleye, Van Nuys, Cantrell, Gennrich-Genrich, Wilk-Wilkie-Wilczewski, Hoff, and Filipowicz-Phillips. And my wife's family Sawyer, Mumm, Limb, Curry, Barkuloo, Schmidt, and Green.

Currently working Peoria County cemeteries. Photographed: Prospect, Chillicothe, Streitmatter, and Saint Joseph Mooney Cemetery.

I am now working the historic Springdale Cemetery. Have 100% photograhed Division A, The Willows, Forrest Lawn, Woodland Heights, Front Lawn, Chapel View, Mt. Sinai, Mt. Hope, Washington Heights, Resurrection, Masonic Garden Division, and Valley View grave markers in Springdale. Working the Last Supper / Sermon on the Mount / Gethsemane / Good Shepherd Divisions now.

If you make edit suggestions, I do investigate every suggestion before accepting. I do not accept suggestions, where the only source is an ancestry tree. Documentation is required.

A few things I've learned...
Death certificates are good for date and location of death (other info on death certificate is advisory).
Birth certificate is the best source for date of birth, location, and parents.
Info from headstones is also advisory too. Headstones are sometimes put in place decades later by descendants and errors are made.

I will transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines, unless they are part of my own genealogical research.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

I will also admit that I'm reluctant to transfer ownership where an obit is included and all of the links have already been made.

Many of the transfers that I've made, just sit there, no embellishments.

RE: John Farlin - North Division
Okay - I just uploaded an XLS database - haven't done one of them for a while, but I couldn't put all the burials on, that I found pictures in that file. Wow...wish I would have filed it correctly in 2011!

John Farlin - North Division
I found another group of pictures from North Division tonight - John Farlin's birth year on the stone is 1848. I took these pictures in 2011

Thank you
Thank you so much for adding the photo of my 2nd great grandmother. We are sharing this with folks in my family tree and we are excited to see Theda's headstone.

Kind regards,

The Wittstock family in Michigan
Hello Stephen, my name is Robert Lasiuta, son of Sandra Ann Wittstock Lasiuta, grandson of Edward F Wittstock and Theresa Duzynski Wittstock. I submitted information on some of the Wittstocks hoping to close a few gaps. I have photos I will submit once I get around to scanning them. If there is any information you may want or need, feel free to contact me, as I have quite a bit.

Please change the middle initial from T to C. The death certificate posted at his memorial states his middle initial is C. Thomas C. Brazier

Thank you!

I'm a friend of the family researching their family tree and a volunteer of Find A Grave.

I was looking at the memorial for Julius L. Rose of Peoria, Il. at the Springdale Cemetery. He is a distant cousin. Are you related to him? I see that his children and grandchildren remained in Peoria, and had many offspring. Any info is appreciated. Liane Rose Leavitt
