Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was named for a (distant) relative, Jessie Ohl Darrow of Ohio (first wife of Clarence Darrow). My grandmother, Jessie Darrow Davis of Pennsylvania, highly disapproved of Clarence.

I have been tracing my family tree since 1980 and am currently researching my Affelder and Zugsmith relatives, with a focus on Germany, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New York. As a sideline, I try to input memorials for Jewish cemeteries and individuals in Chicago and elsewhere.

My Findagrave image is a photo of my father's headstone in Chesterton, Indiana. He was a radio engineer, a telegrapher and ham radio enthusiast. The face on the memorial bears a slight resemblance to him, but the gargoyle figure and pyramid topper are both a whimsy of the talented sculptor who created the monument.

When asking for corrections or transfers, please request thru the memorial link. When requesting a transfer, your FAG number would be appreciated. Give me a few days to a month to comply or reply.

RE: Karl Brumbaum photo
I created a memorial for his wife since I had the photos. If you want me to transfer it to you, just ask through the memorial and I'll be happy to.

RE: Butteris in Hillside
You are welcome, and yes it is the group you noted. I would have posted to the others' memorials, but found none. Glad to be of assistance.

RE: Nathan Wescott

I am curious as to how you are related to the Wescotts. Especially, since your name is Jessie! We have 3 Jessie Wescotts in my line that I know of:

My Great grandmother was Jessie May Wescott and her daughter was named Jessie "Beulah" Wescott, so she went by her middle name of Beulah.

Also Gaylord Wescott named his daughter after his Mom, Jessie May Wescott. Gaylord's daughter was named Jessie "Edna" Wescott, so the family called her Edna.

My niece is a Jessica (nicknamed Jessi), only Wescott is not her surname.
