Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired career Firefighter from Illinois. My wife and I have also been on a volunteer fire department for years. My mother has been interested in genealogy for more than 50 years and infected us with the bug more than 35 years ago. After retiring, my wife and I really began to do in depth genealogy research and enjoy trying to connect all the family information we can get a hold of. We found that Find-A-Grave was a great tool to use to help locate and link information (like trying to put a big jigsaw puzzle together). We really enjoy going to different cemeteries and taking pictures of stones for requestors across the country. It is always quiet and very seldom does anyone talk back to you.
We have done a lot of work with the cemeteries in Keokuk County, Iowa which is where my parents and several generations of my family came from. We have also started adding names from around our home area in western Illinois.
If we have entered a name of one of your friends or relatives and you wish to add it yourself, please let us know. We don't mean to offend anyone. Please let us know of any errors or corrections.
If you have any questions, E-mail us, but remember to put Find-A-Grave in the subject line.

I see you posted the memorial for him. It's his 2nd wife I'm interested in. I'm trying to find some of her family to return some photos that I've found. Thanks if you can give me any helpful information

Joan K Breheny
When her husband died, the gravestone of Joan K Breheny, #37751019, was replaced in RI National Cemetery.

Would you delete you photo of the old stone please?
