Bio Photo Feel free to contact me with any corrections or additions to my listings!

Please use the "Edit" tab for making changes to data fields; and select "suggest any other correction or addition" to:
1) Add other info outside the data fields
2) To (optional) provide documentation for changes
3) To request a memorial transfer

I'm happy to transfer individuals unrelated to my family (or more closely related to you), or if you have some special interest in them.

Gravestone photos which I have taken may be freely used for any legitimate genealogical or historical purpose. Please click on the photo to make sure that it's mine, and that I did not just add it; I will credit original photographer.

Please also feel free to add more photos to the memorials - portraits, snapshots, etc. If you need more photo slots just let me know; if you have a better gravestone picture I'm fine with deleting mine.

And here's a standing "Thank you" to the usual suspects, for sending corrections, links & additional info for the local memorials; I know your work is impeccable!


Primary focus is documenting West Aurora Cemetery. Nearly all marked graves now have photos posted; a few fallen, broken, and overgrown stones still need to be identified and photographed. (About half of the documented burials are known to be unmarked.) Please check out the "unknowns" if you are missing a family member who you think might be buried at West Aurora!

Memoral Update
Thanks for helping update my great grandfather memorial. It is nice to view his memorial with all his family members.

Hey do you live in DuPage, IL? Because one of my distant cousins died in Bensenville, IL, and I was wondering if you lookup obituaries too?

RE: Wooten question
Lisa, Thanks for the note. William T. Wooten's father was my great Uncle. I didn't recognize any of the people you mentioned in my tree. I've been looking for William T. for a while. If you would care to browse my Ancestry tree, it's wide open (wooten_stewart-2012) and if you have questions feel free to ask. Thank you for your time remembering our ancestors. Stewart

RE: Mary Mead Laden birth place
Hi Lisa,
How do you feel about just Walton, Lee Co. IL on Mary's birth place? And they were in Dixon before 1918 because John's WWI Draft Card states he was living there during that part anyway. John and Mary were in Elwood, Peoria Co. by 1880 and Harmon, Lee Co. IL by the 1900 census. So, I am wondering if Catherine was actually born in Harmon, Lee Co, IL instead of Amboy? Really strange but the only thing we can go by is the documentation that you have. So maybe we should go by that? Let me know what you think and I will go with that....LOL
