Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will happily transfer any memorials I manage to someone who is related to them if I am not.

Also will happily transfer any memorials of anyone I am related to if the requester is more closely related.

Also any and all pictures I have uploaded to this site, I freely share with anyone to use for any non-commercial use they see fit (including uploading to etc.)

I live in Northern Illinois (Rockford area) in Winnebago County. I enjoy riding my motorcycles out to different sites and gathering information on family. When possible I will gather as much for others as possible in order to contribute back to this community that I have got so much information from.

Recently my Fiancee, Barbara Carstens, has been helping me take photos. She is a trooper to be so helpful, especially on the hot summer days, and I want to make sure she gets credit for all her help. Also, as important, I wanted to make sure if you caught a glimpse of any pink painted toes in any photos, you knew they weren't mine. :)

We have to the best of our ability taken photos of every stone in the following cemeteries:

Winnebago County, Illinois:

Bethel Cemetery
Durand Cemetery
Fenlon Cemetery
Guilford Turner Cemetery
Harlem Cemetery
Harrison Cemetery
Hulse Cemetery
Laona Cemetery
Marsh Cemetery

Owen Center Cemetery
Pecatonica Cemetery
Phillips Cemetery
Pinnacle Hill Cemetery

Roscoe Cemetery
Rose Hill Cemetery
Saint Marys (Durand) Cemetery
Shirland Cemetery

If you need photos for Genealogy ( etc. and the person with the memorial copyrights their photos and they are from any of the Cemeteries above let me know and I will be happy to find my photo of the stone for you to have.

My intention is to be as respectful to all the people represented by these memorials as possible, and to the other users of this site. I take absolutely no offense at recommendations, corrections, transfer requests, etc. And mean no offense when submitting corrections. The more accurate the memorials, the better for those looking for their loved ones, both to pay their respects and/or for genealogists interested in their family or local history.

Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for sharing my Great Grandparent's stone!
Cora H. (1906-1983) & Fred C. Smith (1905-1982)
I lived with them when I was a small child, until they passed. I love across the country and seeing their stone means so much to me.
Thanks again, I truly appreciate it.

Great attitude!
Dale - I must comment on your wonderfully generous attitude about whether "to keep all the marbles," like a few other contributors tend to do. Thanks for your generous philosophy and willingness to share your memorials with others. It's good to remember that the majority of Find A Grave contributors share our attitude--but sometimes we (I) get bummed out about those who do not--those who treat their memorials like some sort of award they want to keep on the mantle.
Thanks so much for showing us the "right" way to do this!
Best regards,
Monett, MO
