Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I'm very interested in genealogy. I enjoying adding information to memorials, especially full names, dates, and links to family members. I try to add obituaries, when and if I have them. I am in the process of adding pictures, obituaries, and information to the Rogers, McCarron, Brown, Ruebenson, Ruebensam, and Galligan pages.
I live in Kendall County, Illinois, and try to get out to local cemeteries to fulfill photo requests and make additions. It is exciting to find ancestors!
I am researching the following surnames on my side: Brown, Ruebenson/Ruebensam/Reabensame/Rebenson, Galligan, McCarron, McCarville, Hanxladen/Hanxleden, Krapf, Kizer, Vitraelli, D'Orazio, DiGarbo, DiFalco, Cicero, Gardos, Peterson, Harper, Riggs, Gullen/Gullin, Goldberger; and the following surnames on my husband's side: Morrison, Joyce, Rogers, McCoy, Myers, Tuntland. Ring, and Grover

***Feel free to utilize my photos for your personal use. When utilizing any of my photos, please give proper credit to myself (Melissa Joyce) and Find A Grave. The following is an example citation: "Headstone: Full Name. Death year. Cemetery name, Cemetery city, cemetery state. Digital Image by Melissa Joyce Memorial #."

***I am happy to include and/or update information on any of the memorial pages that I maintain, including family links, obituaries, etc. I am also happy to transfer management to family members. If contacting me directly, please include Findagrave in the email subject.

Morrison Family
Hi Melissa
Thanks for the information on Peter Henderson Morrison. Peter was my grandfather's (WILLIAM Morrison b.5/4/1876 to George & Ann Bryce Morrison) nephew. Rarely see anything on the net connected to this family, so thank-you.

Henry Powles
Thank you for posting the article on H. G. Powles, his story is a remarkable one. I'll try and get a picture of his stone on there as I live near the cemetery.

Vitarelli family
Hi, I saw your post about there being Vitarelli's in your family line. I am a Vitarelli by birth, my father John W. Vitarelli, son of Paul Vitarelli and Theresa Greene Vitarelli, born in Pittsburgh, PA, settled in Penn Hills,PA and my grandmother died in DuBois, PA where she is buried.

I am interested in finding the origins of the family (as to where they are from in Italy) and possibly the meaning of the name. I know of no others other than my Grandparents, Aunts, and cousins.Are they numerous in New York?
