Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Palestine, Crawford County, Illinois. As a descendant of the Kitchell Family, founding pioneer family, I have tried to compile the connections of relatives within that family and the web of related persons in Palestine. So many of the families intermarried. I no longer live there so most of my information is on connections of families from 1815 to 1960s.
My other family interests are the Cline-Warner families who were the first white families in Oklahoma from my mother's ancestors and the Taylor-Wells-Holmes families in Ohio from my father's ancestors.
Any pictures that I post may be freely copied; they are there to be shared. It is nice to be cited as the contributor, but I don't get all hung up on needing credit. But I do feel that in genealogy work, it is best to keep track of your sources for information and pictures as it helps authenticate the material.

RE: Willis C. Hammer memorial #135664768
I found more information and was able to confirm this is the correct Willis C. Hammer who was married to Stella McCauley. Thank you for your assistance.

Willis C. Hammer
Could this Willis C. Hammer memorial #135664768 be Stella McCauley Hammer's (memorial #53974645) ex-husband and father of her children (Winifred Hammer Barquist)?

Thanks for all the additional information. I've linked him to his parents and will keep searching for clues to location of his first
wife. I'll try to link any children or siblings who are unconnected
as time permits, while adding to the biography. His second wife
Martha Johnson's maternal grandmother was a sister of both my
three greats and my great-great-grandmother. So I didn't really
have much information on previous marriage & children: parents;
or siblings when I originally added him to Find-a-Grave.

Thx for the info. Changes made...hopefully correctly. My info came from the death certificate, and things are sometimes not entirely accurate there.

The lady who found it for me said she actually got it from microfilm at the county historical society.
