Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in preserving information about my ancestors, family and friends for the future generations. My main family lines are Franks/Phillips/Ingle/Martin. I am currently photographing and adding memorials for Greenview Memorial Gardens in Rock Island County, IL.

A special thank you to Angie for the transfer of my parents and Rebekah for the transfer of my maternal grandparents:
George "Willis" Phillips
Dora Elizabeth Franks Phillips

And thank you to someone I do not know for the transfer of my paternal grandparents:
William "Bill" Denton Martin
Patience "Effie" Ann Ingle Martin.

My Grandparents lived in Marion County, AL in the Pea Ridge Community. I have many fond memories of them. I was fortunate to have known all four of my grandparents and three of my great-grandparents.

And thank you to rebekah for the transfer of my Uncle Thomas Leonard Phillips who was killed in action in World War II.

I have kept records through the years, and have pictures I want to share. A photo tells a story. All photos I submit to findagrave are taken by me or handed down through my family. These photos may be used for your personal use.

I want to help other people find their family.
While searching cemeteries for my relatives, I have added memorials for people not related to me in hopes that family members will find them. If you are closer related than I, I will gladly transfer.

Those that have passed before us are more than a name and date. My goal is to have "meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

If only a year is shown on the headstone, dates are taken from the USSS Death Index . Information from obituaries is not always correct. If there are any mistakes, please let me know. I always appreciate and welcome additional information. If I have accidently created a duplicate, PLEASE let me know. If someone has added a photo that is of better quality, I will gladly delete mine.
Thank you to all who are dedicated to preserving our history.

If you have any questions, please contact me using the edit tab on any of the memorials that I manage or leave a message below.

Thanks for the heads-up! Yes, this was a memorial I had put up. I hadn't heard of any cyber attack on F.A.G. What a mess! I guess I should take time to check out my other memorials too. Hope the Find A Grave people are working on better ways of protecting our genealogy information.
Thanks again,

Henriette D. Rasmussen #96724529
Hello Martha -

If you are not related to Henriette Rasmussen, could you please transfer her memorial page (& her husband, Christian's, too) to me? Aunt Yetta was my great-grandmother's sister.

Her memorial # is 96724529.

Thank you!

The Gentleman in question is a Family Member of Mine. Although I do not have a Headstone photo on this Memorial (As You have Pointed out), My Memorial has correct Info - including the Name ! Sometimes You have to Overlook the Date and Read the Correct Info Instead.

RE: George A. Mitchell
I have changed the picture. I'm sorry for that. I got the records from the cemetery office and that's what they gave me. I didn't notice at the time that the middle initial was different.

The photographer on this memorial should be contacted. I think we are talking about two different individuals.

RE: Kilgore family
Nope! Sorry, but Jessie Irene Estes Green (memorial #107369606) is not related to my Kilgore relatives that I am aware of. I didn't know if Ralph Kilgore (1892 - 1964) (memorial #132884052)had any siblings. He married into the family. My grand mother's younger sister, Blanche (Burkhart) Kilgore (1899 - 1986) (memorial #132884107).

Robert Kilgore Obit
Thank you so much for the Obituary and the added information for Robert Kilgore (memorial# 132884373). Bob is a cousin of my mother and after I saw that you had added Stanley L. Kilgore to F. a G., I thought that I should get busy and add the other Kilgore's that I had info for.
My mother and my grand mother saved all the family obits, but since my mother died in 2008, a lot of that info has ended up with someone like my sister.
Are you related to this family? And would you have anymore info on some of this Kilgore family?
Stanley's daughter, Judy was a classmate of mine in Jr. High and I understand that she and her dau. died as the results of an auto accident in Missouri, but I don't seem to have that Obit.
