Bio and Links
I am a recently retired school teacher. I've been doing genealogy for the past 30 years. I recently joined the Find a Grave website.

I have completed photographing and uploading all the stones from the Little Rock Township Cemetery in Plano, Illinois. I still have about 10 pictures of very old faded stones that I will use the burial index to identify, but that project will wait until spring. If you wish any of the entries transfered to you, please email me.

The Griswold Cemetery south of Plano has now been completed. There are a number of unreadable stones in the cemetery. I have tried to identify them using an early reading of the cemetery, so that is why some stones may be hard to read.

Fowler Grove Cemetery north of Plano has been completed.

Elmwood Cemetery is Yorkville is totally uploaded, thanks to some assistance with some of the stones.

Working on Pratt's Oak Law and Oak Ridge in Sandwich. Pratt's has a great many partially buried stones and who knows how many totally buried.

Thank you for the speedy correction on Reardanz. I knew her dad Ron Coleman (buried same cemetery) but never met Renee.

Renee Reardanz

You have mistakenly entered the Reardanz record twice as Find A Grave #86314565 and Find A Grave #86314587. Suggest you remove the 86314565 record.

Anne - First, thank you so much for posting the photos to findagrave, I know what time and effort you are giving to this site. I've done a small part myself and it's time consuming.

I am wondering if you can permit me to copy and use your photo of:

Alford Arnold - #73231378 Oak Ridge Cemetery, Sandwich, DeKalb Co., IL. my tree?

Thank you so much!

I think maybe you have wrong mother for this lady.

John Furman was married twice. This looks like the daughter of his first wife Ann Maria (Morgan) Furman, who died in 1841.

I added Ann, but we don't know what cemetery she is in as yet.

Another child is Minnie Weise b. 1874 d 1943, who
married Albert Miller.
Minnie and Albert Weise had kids:
LeRoy b. 1899
Floyd b. 1902

So "Roy" and "Floyd" (in pictures from cottage) are Great Grandma Michels' older sister Eliza's grandsons.
