Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

RE: Mary Haverstock
No problem. I did notice that some of the last names were Hoverstock and some were Haverstock. Somebody has registered the names under Hoverstock as well. You may want to see if you can merge the records.

Alice Burden Haverstock photo
You asked me who was in the photo with Alice Haverstock and I have to guess it was one of her sons, Walter or John. I have no idea where the original photo is now but it might have the name of the child on the back of it. I'll have to hunt it down. Are you related?

ML McMahon
Hello Rev Sims,

I am writing in reference to my 3 times great uncles site for which you took a picture: ML McMahon, buried in Pan, Christian Co, Illinois.

He was a civil war vet and how great you found his tombstone. I do have the approximate year of birth and place for him:

Full name: Martin Luther McMahan/McMahon
DOB: about 1835, Ridge Prairie, Madison Co, IL.
Date of death: unknown. However, I found on his pension card a line for: widow, 7 August 1886 so I would assume he died in 1886.

Thank you for your time in taking all the photos for

James C. Taylor, Rosamond Grove Cemetery
Hello Rev Sims
Are you able to decipher the age of James C. Taylor from your photograph? If possible, I would very much appreciate knowing his age, at the time of death. Many thanks. RLM
