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.

Plot edits for Don and Emma F Mote
Hi! I have seen the edit you sent in to me to add the plot of Gethsemane to the memorials for Don and Emma F. Mote at Springdale Cemetery. I don't quite understand what you mean. Is that the name of a section of the cemetery? Thanks.

Hi Stephen!

John and Ella were my grandparents. Would you mind correcting the spelling of JEH's middle name to ETHAN please? Also, could you link their other daughter, Ada Viola Coryell, to their page?

Thanks so much!

Thanks for that information. Her obit does not list her parents; the surname was from her three brothers that were listed, all surname Crank. According to the 1930 census, she married Clarence Martin about 1926 (in her 40's), so she could have been married prior to that. I left her maiden as Crank for now, although its also possible that her maiden is Smith and the Crank's are half-sibs.

Charles Smith
Yes, I think Charles is her son. I think all the evidence is enough that I am editing her birth to Aug 1865, Memphis, TN; and her name.

I agree that Andrew is most likey her son. I added her estimated age from the obit, but the obit was pretty minimal. There was a photo, though, she was African American, which matches the 1920 census and Andrew's record.
