Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

RE: Lizzie Culbreath Erwin and George Erwin
Ahaha... it's a very nice name too. I've done that many times before. That e-mail was a great deal of help too. I'm quite amazed at how much information was there. At least that helps explain who those little Erwins were in Pleasant Grove in Crab Orchard were. I always wondered. The pictures turned out quite nicely too and completely made me giddy. I may have been able to pick out one of the men in the picture too as he looks so much like my great and great-great-grandfathers that I suspect it's George Erwin. You have quite made my year and I can't thank you enough for all the help. Bless you.

Lizzie Culbreath Erwin and George Erwin
Thank you for the updates for their birth and death dates. It's greatly appreciated as I kept running into little to no information about these two or their kids outside of Frances Erwin Albaugh (or Frankie as my family has referred to her). I'm quite curious as to whether the Bible has any other dates for either Erwins or Albaughs, especially Frances' husband (Homer W Albaugh) as I can't seem to find a death date for him. Thank you again for everything.

RE: Thanks - Woodland Heights
I think the Garden of Gethsemane is just to the west of Mausoleum, but I'm not sure how much territory it covers, or where it begins and ends?
I'm going to be working in Woodland Heights for a while, trying to do Divisions from one side to the other and not overlook any grave markers.
