Mattie Wingert grave
We so appreciate your work on behalf of those who want to remember their family members. My friend, a descendant of Mattie Wingert (wife of Charles Wingert 1876-1942, buried Amity Cemetery, Richland County Illinois) buried Cartwright Cemetery, Tuscola, Douglas County Illinois, would be so pleased to know where the information for a maiden name (Ragen/Rechen) for her came from. We realize you have a lot to do, but if it is not too difficult, could you let us know where that was recorded and perhaps where the marriage information ("married Mattie Strouse on March 14, 1901 in Richland County, Illinois" ) that appears with the memorial for Charles came from.

With much appreciation,

b (betsy shafer, Cupertino, Calif. - helping a friend with family history)

Erastus Beedle Photo Request
You indicated there was no gravestone to photograph and asked if he could be buried elsewhere. In his obituary (posted on memorial page) it states he is in Bourbon Cemetery. Is there a plot map at all? If I can find out his grave location I will order him a VA marker. Thanks.
