Bio and Links
Bio Photo It all started years ago, when my grandmother had her ancestry traced back to the poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. I thought that was pretty cool. Then a handful of old family photos surfaced, and a few colorful stories of my ancestors told to me by my mother got me hooked. All of a sudden, I have a new hobby. I am very new at this, and the information to be found is staggering. It is like a treasure hunt! I also love to visit cemeteries, and on walks I find myself wandering through, looking at the graves. I find them very poignant. As a child, my mother would take my brother and me to the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Danville, Illinois to see the swans. I learned to drive in the Spring Hill Cemetery (I guess I couldn't do anyone harm there!) As I embark on this new adventure, I am hoping to be able to contribute information that others can use as well. Any of the photos I have contributed may be used for genealogical purposes. I would love to know when I have been of assistance, so drop me a line if you find a grave you've been looking for.

RE: Ray Stevens unmarked grave
You are welcome. Glad I could help but I am always disappointed when I have to report unmarked graces. Before I started depicting unmarked burials, I would see duplicate photo requests because there is no way to indicate the burial is unmarked on the memorial itself. So far it has worked out well.

Wheeler Cemetery

My husband and I were at Wheeler Cemetery today and searched for Joseph O'Dell for your photo request. However, we were not able to locate the grave. If you have a more specific location, we'll be glad to check again the next time we are in the Wheeler area.
