|david curtis||Albert Shepard|
I was posting a photo of my Great Great Grandfather Albert Shepard (of Wabash, IL husband to Sarah Jane Greathouse) to findagrave and was surprised to see a photo that I have never seen before. Is this really Albert Shepard? He resembles the younger Albert in my family photo of him a bit. Where did you find the photo? Are you related to Albert Shepard?
|Johanna hubbard||137647555 Aaron Insley|
I have Aaron Insley died in Nov 4, 1891 in my genealogy as my Great Grandfather. Born 7 May of 1840 in Indian. His wife is Sarah Anne Van Brunt
His son is Thomas A Insley 129999035 born 1864 in Illinois. He died in 15 jan 1937 in Santa Fe N Mex.
If this is no family connection I would love to maintain his site! Thanks!

Thank you for taking a picture of my grandmother. I've been looking for her for awhile. She was actually my step-grandmother on my dad's side but she is the only grandmother I ever met. She was a sweet lady.
|Delaine Shirley-Noyer||RE: Lloyd Freeman-Willowbrook Cemetery|
Awesome! Keep up the good work. We need more people like you!!
I deleted the memorial. This is one of the problems with this site - people send you requests for links and revisions and you have no way of knowing if they're correct. You feel like a jerk if you don't change things. Well, now it's gone.

I would be happy to put what you added in your note to Thomas' biography, if you'd like.
Would you transfer Ruth Guynn (wife of
John Godfrey Guynn) she (Ruth) is my cousin
|S Predaina||Benjamin Polson|
You have listed this person as Benjamin FRANKLIN Polson yet the tombstone clearly lists him as Benjamin J Polson. This is my great grandmother's brother. His middle name was JEFFERSON. Please correct the entry.
|Celia Elliott||Military Service of Charles B. Monroe|
Thank you so much for your information on Charles Barton Monroe, buried in Rice Cemetery, Champaign County. Thanks to you, I was subsequently able to find that he mustered in as a private on September 3, 1862, in Champaign, and mustered out on June 9, 1865. You are doing a great service to these brave men and their descendants.
|Shirley M. Strickland||Harvey, Hiestand|
Russell, thank you for your information and for honoring these American Heroes.
