Bio and Links
Hello,
I have been going genealogy research for over 40 years; started when there were NO computers and the records were not always available. I enjoy helping people look for there ancestors. I am currently one of the Salem Christian Union Church's historians. I take care of the past history and am working on the cemetery there. We are documenting the headstones with photos, stone rubbings, and sometimes able to unearth stones. There are three books; which are now sold out; the history of the church and one of all the persons who are buried in the church yard and one of just the veterans buried here. Hopefully reprints will be available soon. I am also interested in finding old photos of Salem church and the cemetery. The cemetery was vandalized twice in 1974 and 88 headstones were damaged.

Please, DO NOT DUPLICATE the entries OR ADD ANY INFORMATION AND NOT LET ME KNOW!!! I am bringing the cemetery and veterans' books up to date; or trying to. Cannot do this if you add someone and not notify me. Also, in the process of updating and adding information and its very time consuming to keep going back and forth. Also, I do not transfer families at this time as this is an on-going site and I am the caretaker of the cemetery records. I will gladly add any information that you like. ALL headstone photos have been entered on this site that are available. If others are found I will put them on as soon as I can. There are around 200 UNMARKED graves.

I consider Southern Illinois; Jasper Co.; my home and the surnames I research there are Wilkerson/Wilkinson, Curtright, Shelly, Fore, Worthey, Wilson, Barker, Joseph, Larkin(s), Clark, Densmore, Martin, Barker/Reiglesberger, Pictor and McKinney/McKimmey . Happy Searching and may God bless...


Barbara

Always glad to help out. I think it's important to make some of this information public while we are still alive to do it. Once we're gone, it could be lost forever.

I was transcribing all the obits in the book I listed. My Aunt left me over 1500 genealogy books when she passed away and rather than just let them sit on the shelf and collect dust, I decided to add the information on Find A Grave.
