I began my family ancestry research in 2007 after the loss of my brother, grandmother, and father-in-law within a 1 year period...I just wish that I had started this sooner when those who could answer my questions were still around--not to mention identify people in old pictures...I have just recently signed up as a volunteer for my local cemeteries...it is very peaceful to take a break and help others find their ancestors resting places...there is something very comforting in returning the favor for others who have helped me...
As I find family members, I am creating memorials for them and linking them with the family. The only memorials I have are family members so if you would like more information or have questions, please email me. My family research is ongoing and these memorials are in conjunction with researching so I am slow about creating them but very much working on it.
I am currently also checking and/or creating memorials from the stone readings of the following cemeteries:
"Clark County, Illinois" BLIZZARD CEMETERY - done DEAN CEMETERY - done FARRIS CEMETERY - done FOX CEMETERY - done ZIEGLER CEMETERY - done
"Edgar County, Illinois" LITTLE GROVE CEMETERY - done OAK GROVE CEMETERY - done OLD BAPTIST CEMETERY - done PRYOR CEMETERY - done SIMS CEMETERY - done
Jacob and Della Grimes the memorial notation says she is dau of John and Maude, but I am showing her as dau of Sidney and Sarah Pitt, and widow Sarah is living with Jacob and Della in Ross, Vermillion, Illinois 1900 census. Can you help me to confirm which is correct? thanks
RE: Claudette Jewell Hi, The marriage records (which aren't always correct) states that her father was born in Oklahoma City, OK and was deceased at the time of the marriage in 1953. I found where Collet was fined for driving an unlicensed truck in March of 1950 and had an address of Paris, IL. Don't know if that was Sr. or Jr. I found an obit for a Everett Risinger of Kenosha, WI that list half brothers of Collet Wolfe Jr, Homer Wolfe, and half sister Claudine Jewell. Exie was first married to Aurthur Risinger and they had children before she married Collett.
Claudine Jeanetta Wolfe Jewell Sorry, that link didn't work so well. If you log onto the Vigo County Public Library website, they have marriage records online. Also she listed her full christian name as Claudine Jeanetta Wolfe.
Claudine Jeanetta Wolfe Jewell Hi, I rejected your edit to change Claudine's spouse from Bunny Jewell to unknown. There is a record of Claudine and Bunny's marriage on file at the Vigo County Courthouse. If you have other proof or reasoning please let me know.
