Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 7 years now, focusing on my female lines, which can be difficult. I prove everything I find - by spending long hours in courthouses, cemeteries, libraries, etc. I travel to the places my ancestors hail from - mostly the UK, central Illinois, southwest Virginia and Pennsylvania. Due to the amount of intense research, my volunteering with UK historical societies, my time is limited, therefore I will only post the basic information on the pages I add to Find-A-Grave as well as a picture if I have one handy. However, if you would like a photo from a McLean County or Woodford County cemetery and I am in the area, I will be happy to snap a photo for you, as well as any cemetery in the O'Hare airport area and the UK.

Thank you for posting the picture of Isabella Tallon's grave sight. She was my great great grandmother on my mothers side of the family.

George MacDonald & father
His father is listed as Alexander Macdonald (b. 1819 d. Nov. 20, 1887), Find a Grave #21712305. You show his family, brother (drowned at the same time and place as George), and his infant sister, who died when 1 year old, and his Mother.

My question is this, did George get buried, or does your research show he was never found?

Also, I completely appreciate your depth of research. Wish I could do the same. It certainly isn't easy for the serious Genealogist. I find so many deadends, repeats, etc. No on seems to want to clean up their mess. Therefore, mine is a mess until I can get the time to sort it out. I am 70 years old and wish I could get it first hand, not so confusing.

Thank you again, for the time and effort you put into genealogy research, Clairine Johnson

You would be surprised at the number of unmarked graves in the years following the Civil War. It took over fifty years for some families to recover, only to loose it again during the depression.

Thank you SO very much, Jodie!

As I live 1,800 miles from my home of Chicago, I was not able to visit this cemetery in person.

Like you, the female line of my family is my focus of research. I checked Find a Grave only last fall, and was so surprised to see something new come up in my search. You can imagine my surprise... and delight!

Anna Witt Ruge is my great-great Grandmother on my mother's side.

Willie Lubertha McCoy Brown
Wanted to let you know I fulfilled this photo request. In the same plot are Willie Haire and Willie Myrtle Haire--in her obituary it says that Willie Lubertha Brown is her niece. There was also a photo request from another member for Willie Haire, so I was able to add the photos for all of them.

Armstrongs in Oconto Wi
Hi Jodie,

I fulfilled your requests for Claude and Emma Armstrong. There were also 4 other Armstrongs buried on the same plot as Claude and Emma, so I added them also. If you have any questions please contact me.

Thanks so much for the photo of Milford Dochterman's grave marker. If you are back in that area, would you be able to post a picture of his wife, Maude's memorial and and children that may be buried near them? I really appreciate your time.
