Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy several years ago, while attending a family reunion. Someone made the statement "If someone doesn't write this information down, then it's going to be lost". I realized how true that was, so I began my searches. I think "Family" is very important, and sometimes younger generations don't think much about the present time, then later begin to wonder. Of course, after all the info has been gathered, then family members request copies of the info, which I am happy to share.

Now that I have become aquainted with Find A Grave, I am trying to get as much info and photos added, as possible, to help others locate their loved ones.

If requesting transfers, or asking me to do corrections or additions, please do so, through the edit tab on the memorial you are requesting.

Thank you ever so much for creating a memorial page for my grandmother. She was very special and loved by many. Thank you for transferring the management over to me. I will be sure to take good care of her page.

Shirley Hall
RE: Albert Chandler
Please add the obituary can be seen at:

Effingham Daily News, Effingham, Illinois

and Breeze Courier, Taylorville, Illinois.

These are both newspapers.

You have the funeral home which is very good. Some societies need to have the newspaper obituary copy when tracing family members.

Sarah Harrison
What information do you have about Sarah Harrison? I am looking for a Sarah Harrison that was married to John S. and had a daughter Easter. They lived in Missouri for a time.

Sarah might have left Missouri after her husband passed and moved in with a sister. I say this because I found a census where she was with a Cassandra Balous and they were both widowed. This census was in Franklin County, Illinois.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Mary Sams #110944139
Jan, this Mary Sams is the same as Mary Reid #69629022 by NanC. I really don't know how to fix this, but she is on the tombstone as Sams and NanC has her in there as Mary Reid, or visa versa. Would you please check on this for me. Thanks, Barb
