Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on genealogy since 1990. In the course of that time I've gained a lot of skill in researching. I've written a book about Bernadotte township, and have been a past board member of the Fulton County Illinois historical and genealogical society.

The main surnames that I research are: Barnett, Swise, Johnson, Haverfield, Hoggett, Werry, Strosnider, DeMoss, White, Hale, Russell, Cameron, Cannon, Hughes, Burge, Dennis, Tippey, O'Donnell, Lally, Hunter, and Brewer.

Most of my research centers in Fulton County Illinois in the areas of Lewistown and Bernadotte.

RE: Pictures posted of Jones and Pedigo kids.
I received the photos of these families from JoAnne (Jones) Brown. She gave me all the info on these memorials.

You might check with her and see if she has anything you can use. I think you may possibly know her. At least she recognized your name, when we came across it.

Thanks for adding more photos to these memorials!

Mary Swise Gensel
I'm the 3rd great to William Dill Genseal, And I'm a bit confused. If you don't mind sharing, could you please tell me where you are finding Mary Swise marrying John H Shriber, as I have only found a Mary Elizabeth Walters (but not Mary Swise) marrying a Perry G Shriber on 7 Feb 1889 in Fulton, Illinois. Also have 1910 & 1920 censuses in Illinois after Mary was already married to William Dill Genseal, & with few Genseal children & few shriber children (their relationship to William Genseal identified as step). 1910 census also says this Marys parents were both born in Germany. Was this where Christian & Louisa (Hency) Swise, Marys parents are from? Thanks for any light you might be able to shine on this very confusing problem I'm having.

Werry family
Hey Don, Thanks for all the hard work. I just wanted to let you know that Margaret Carper (1889-1971), my great stepmother, was also a Werry (daughter of Samuel & Jane Werry). Thanks!

DeMoss surname

How far back have you gotten with your DeMoss surname? I have an Elizabeth Hays married to Peter DeMoss. They had the following children:
Amanda J, Mary J, James W, Thomas P, John T, Luther Main, Martin Y.

Elizabeth is the daughter of James Hays and Isabelle Crail Hays. I come thru a son of James and Isabelle.

I have two lines of the DeMoss worked some, Amanda J who married James S Penny, and Thomas P who married Marila A Castle.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am Peggy Beadles Derry's youngest daughter, and in reading the information I noticed you had my aunts name as Clara, it is Cora Irene Beadles Bordner.

Thank you.
