|Having more fun walking the older areas of the cemeteries and thinking of the histories.|
I have photographed all of Oak Grove and more than half of Lakeside in Pekin, IL. There are alot of missing headstones and quite a bit that are unreadable. Getting what I can before they are gone.
I will transfer ONLY within Find A Grave's guidelines. Though happy to add any information you have to the memorials. This is a memorial site, not a family genealogy site.
I also have spent many an hour walking the cemeteries and transcribing headstones that are hard to read. If you take any of the photos and place them on other sites such as Ancestry, at least make credit back to me. May sound selfish, but giving credit to someone for their work is only correct.

I sent a request on death date. According to the cemetery records it lists her as wife of William and maiden name of Rieman, age 72-6-11. Not sure if it is the same person or not, but it is the only listing for a Grace. Use info as you wish
Thanks for the info... Nonnie Groenhagen married 2 women, with similar names. His first wife was a Riemann, the oldest sister of my GGGFather. All of the Riemann sibling's middle name was Janssen.
Nonnie's second wife was Grieske Janssen (Janssen is her last name).
He had children with both wifes.
Are you connected to these families? I thought I got the info on the burial location from family and that they have no markers (or they are now lost).
These women are confusing...so the Lakeside Cemetery said her maiden name was Rieman/Riemann. Wife of William. 72 years old/6 months/11 day. Now I'm really confused.
If you follow the links to Nonnie or his older kids, you can get to the first wife Grieske

I agree with you. I don't remember who had the duplicate but there's one person I keep seeing adding memorials very sloppily - sometimes without any information except the name. He'll have dates available to him and only put the year, never adds birth or death locations, never puts maiden names, doesn't go to the funeral home to get any dates or anything there (just uses the newspaper obit and some of those have next to no information) and he never adds links to family members, etc. I guess he's just running up numbers for himself, I don't know. It's very frustrating. Grrrrr!

Hello Linda- I just posted a photo of this person's mausoleum stone and noticed the inscription says: wife of Kenneth Gay not Gray. I also submitted an edit suggestion to that effect. Mikielynne
I have left numerous corrections and additions for this memorial in addition to additions on her husband and parents. Please update at your earliest convenience. She is my former mother-in-law.

|Cindy Kaye||RE: Ieres Meahl|
Thanks. I'll check to see if this name or similar are in the branch of the Meahl family in my tree. It is a very strange name, but then one of the siblings of Arless Sr. was named Luscious and his father was Royal.

I am running backups right now but may have more photos for you. I will have to check. Lydia is my great grandmother.

|Sam Andrusko||Info on Werts family|
Was delighted to find the entries you made for Anderson Werts, his wife, and son. Information I had was "Wertz" and had seen also the name as Weerts.
I noticed, however, that for the entry for the son, Elmer Louis Werts (90243303), you say the father, Anderson, was born in Tribble IL, but under the entry for the father (90242607), you say he was born in Trumbull Co Ohio, so can you confirm which is correct and change the other? Could not find a Tribble IL nor any town named Tribble in the US Board of Geographic Names database.
Thanks again for this valuable information.

P.S. Anderson Werts also had a son Eugene and a daughter Goldie. Oh, and under Elmer, it says his mother was born in Bloomington, but under her entry (90243090), it just says Indiana.

Thank you for completing my photo request at Lakeside Cemetery in Pekin for Wanda Lee Bennett. Your time and dedication to the findagrave site is greatly appreciated. I appreciate your time, your thorough documentation and source verification processes that you complete in order to makes this site a reliable resource. May that same enthusiasm be transformed to those that utilize the site aimlessly whenever they encounter a memorial, photograph, or source of information where you are referenced as the contributor and where they refuse to comprehend the importance of accuracy or validity.

Hi. Is it possible for you to correct one of the children's spouses of Thomas Turbett? I am a descendant of his daughter Mary (known as Polly which is on her gravestone in the Ashland Cemetery in Carlisle, PA). Polly married JOHN Graham, not George Graham.
