Bio and Links
Bio Photo Stories of my Illinois ancestors were shared with me by my great grandmother Grace Ellen Smith Scanlon at an early age and this sparked a deep interest in genealogy and learning more about my heritage. After many years of library and Internet research I decided to visit the areas where my Smith, Rowland, and Wilkerson ancestors once lived. I've now made several trips to Illinois, specifically Montgomery County, and over the course of these visits have developed an interest in documenting cemeteries. My main focus is on abandoned family farm and small community cemeteries that are difficult to locate and are in the greatest need of being recorded.

Closer to home my Mom and I are helping with photo requests and general clean-up at Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale and research at Morningside (Pioneer) Cemetery in Sylmar.

As part of my masters thesis I documented how the victims of the St. Francis Dam disaster have been memorialized. I am thankful for my many fellow find-a-gravers across the U.S.A. who helped me locate and photograph the grave of each flood victim so they are not forgotten.

I do my best to provide complete and accurate information in all my postings. Corrections are encouraged! I will gladly transfer memorials to family and I am happy share my photographs, but please give proper credit: "Ann Stoddard, Find A Grave #46964942". If I have offended anyone by adding their loved ones to the site please let me know and I will promptly remove the memorial.

I can be contacted at ann.stoddard@gmail.com

Could you confirm whether the year of death is 1939 or 1989? (it appears to be the latter based on the gravestone picture). Thanks!

Dear Ann,
I wonder, if you do not have an affiliation to this memorial (Anna Kilcauski 25711575), would you consider transferring it to her great grandson (miketreece20 48770913)??

He is the Treece family historian and would be able to add information and photos easier if he had ownership.

Sincerely
Irene
