Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

RE: Ester Conard Gardner
1) My apologies for being so long in replying. I thought Find A Grave messages were forwarded to one's email basket as it is with Ancestry guess not.
2) I've removed the photo I placed on Mary's site. I had grabbed the wrong Mary E. when posting. Please put up your photo. I have the right one but it is probably many years older than yours.
3) GREAT hat!

Could you transfer Anna's Memorial to me. She is my gg aunt. I apparently created a duplicate in the wrong cemetery and would like to remove it and update her information.

Thank you so much for your help in this interesting dilemma! I had a professional researcher who was helping me with this particular brick wall, and he seemed to lean towards the Painter maiden name, and suggested I ask you where you had gotten the McConnell maiden name. I so appreciate all your efforts in trying to help me solve this! Thanks again!!!

Susannah anderson
Hello shawdau
Are you related to Susannah or her husband John?
Do you have any more information on Susannah Anderson ?
Any web sites etc. ?
I believe she might be the mother of my great great grandmother Margaret Anderson

Thank you very much

Hi Shawdau,
I was wondering if you could tell me how you came up with the Maiden Name McConnell for Nancy Reynolds, since it isn't listed on the headstone. There is conflicting information as to her maiden name possibly being Painter elsewhere.
I would appreciate that information!
