Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would like to tip my hat to those intrepid volunteers that take photographs in cemeteries. Getting a good photo is not easy! The angle of the sun, clouds, grass clippings, over grown weeds, etc. If you have a better picture to upload than I've taken, let me know and if I concur, I'll delete mine. If you want to upload a picture to a memorial I've created, let me know and I'll request one! Photographers deserve as much reward as they can get!

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.

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, Last Supper, Sermon on the Mount, Gethsemane, Good Shepherd, Valley View, Hillcrest Division, Garden of Memories, Glen Division / Glen Ext., Hickory Slope / Ext. and Lawn Division grave markers in Springdale. Working the Fairview Lawn / Orchard Hill / Summit Range 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.

Please do not ask me to link a memorial to burial "unknown", this web site is for the known dispostion of the remains. Let's keep it that way.

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 (*with one exception), 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.

*Once a memorial is complete: death record added, family links made, obituary added, etc. please do not ask for a transfer.

Many of the transfers that I've made, just sit there, no embellishments.

RE: Charles Dalrymple 156066868
I am confused. My suggested edit shows James and Eveline not Martha. I would like to connect James
58753677 and Eveline 65941664 to Charles.

For some reason he changed the spelling of his last name. I will email you some of the documents which should answer your very astute question.
Thank you

Please Refresh My Memory
Hi! Have been out of town for a week and totally lost track of where I was before I left. Re your msg below, cannot remember what it was we were talking about. Can you refresh my fading memory?

RE: Peggy Batchelder,
No, use it as you see fit.

Ralph Jay Campbell, #166548210

First, thank you for all the work you have done in posting information on Find a Grave.

I an wondering if you have additional information about the entry mentioned in the subject line. It states that Ralph Jay Campbell was born as Ralph Rench and changed his name. Any information you might have about why he changed his name and why he changed it to Campbell would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Elizabeth Gatlin # 161713368
Elizabeth Gatlin is my 3rd Great Grandmother. She was married to Nathan B. Gatlin my 3rd Great Grandfather. They had three children. Hilery Gatlin (my 2nd Great Grandfather), Edward Gatlin and Pauline Gatlin. I noticed you had noted that Elizabeth was moved from Moffatts Cemetery to be placed by Edward, her son. I am still trying to locate Nathan B. Gatlin (1814-1847), he died before his wife Elizabeth (1812-1896). I wonder if Nathan maybe buried at Moffatts Cemetery?? Gatlin is on my Mothers side of the family. I noticed your last name, Cantrell. I am also related to Cantrells on my Fathers side, John and Elizabeth (Cantrell) Cantrell were cousins and were my 5th Great Grandparents.
