Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I am Tyler McCane and am located in LaSalle County, IL.

My passion for history and genealogy has led me to start photographing my local cemetery. I've been doing this for a while now.

Corrections: If you find a memorial that I have created and have additional information or a correction (I try my best to make sure what I have entered is correct) then please send me a SAC. Please allow 48 hours for the correction to be made. If it is still not made after that, send another SAC just in case I didn't get it somehow or I accidentally deleted it from my e-mail. I usually do corrections within 24 hours.

Transfers: If you are a relative of the decedents memorial, please request a transfer. Again, please allow up to 48 hours for me to transfer it to you. If you are not a relative and just want to add information, please use the SAC feature.

Projects: I am working currently on Restland Cemetery in Mendota, Illinois (where I live.) I am about 80% complete with photographing and uploading all the stones in that cemetery. Please note that if the grave is unreadable/broken to the point of not being able to read it, it may not be uploaded. What I am going to do after I have completely photographed the cemetery is go back to those unreadable (at the time) and try to read them. After completion of Restland Cemetery, I will be working on other cemeteries in Mendota and in the La Salle/Bureau County, Illinois area. Please be patient as I am the only one photographing the whole cemetery.

I am related to A LOT of people in Restland Cemetery. I usually will leave a flower/note on the memorial if I am related. Please, unless you are a close relative, do not request a transfer.

Please contact me with any questions and use the SAC and transfer functions. It's very rewarding to me to be able to connect the deceased with a family member. If possible, please leave a note on that person's memorial if you are related.

I am also part of the FindAGrave forums (username TylerJamesMcCane.)

We love what you are doing for all of the families who are searching for their heritage. I have read that we have some deep history in Mendota- business at one point in the 1800's, etc. How do we actually locate the graves you have so kindly found for us?
Jacob Klucker was 1818-1884 memorial # 111261669
Johanna Klucker was 1832-1915 memorial #111261475

We were out there the other day but I missed the name of the cemetery so we were in the wrong one!

Are there maps with the plots on them or who would I contact to try to find them?

We are a couple hours away and would like to make a Saturday/Sunday trip out of it.

Again thank you so much for all you are doing.

You're welcome, Tyler! :) Also, on the Stewarts who have unmarked graves, I added photos of where their graves are reportedly located in Zion Cemetery.
