Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist researching the many branches of my family. I live in northern Illinois near the village of Davis Junction in Ogle county. This is just south of Rockford, IL.

Many of the memorials I have added are of people related to me ...but many are not. I often take pictures of other gravestones while visiting a cemetery. If any of my memorials are for your relatives and you would like them transferred to you, just let me know. I would also appreciate any corrections that you notice.

Dear Mr. Carlson: When you took picture of stone for Addison Ramsey and Catherine Dickerman Ramsey, did you see a stone for Amanda? She was Addison's first wife and died June 19, 1859. According to The Munger Book they were married in Rockford in October 1854. Her birthdate is January 16, 1834. Many thanks for anything you can tell me. Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
