Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will happily transfer any memorials I manage to someone who is related to them if I am not.

Also will happily transfer any memorials of anyone I am related to if the requester is more closely related.

Also any and all pictures I have uploaded to this site, I freely share with anyone to use for any non-commercial use they see fit (including uploading to etc.)

I live in Northern Illinois (Rockford area) in Winnebago County. I enjoy riding my motorcycles out to different sites and gathering information on family. When possible I will gather as much for others as possible in order to contribute back to this community that I have got so much information from.

Recently my Fiancee, Barbara Carstens, has been helping me take photos. She is a trooper to be so helpful, especially on the hot summer days, and I want to make sure she gets credit for all her help. Also, as important, I wanted to make sure if you caught a glimpse of any pink painted toes in any photos, you knew they weren't mine. :)

We have to the best of our ability taken photos of every stone in the following cemeteries:

Winnebago County, Illinois:

Bethel Cemetery
Durand Cemetery
Fenlon Cemetery
Guilford Turner Cemetery
Harlem Cemetery
Harrison Cemetery
Hulse Cemetery
Laona Cemetery

If you need photos for Genealogy ( etc. and the person with the memorial copyrights their photos and they are from any of the Cemeteries above let me know and I will be happy to find my photo of the stone for you to have.

My intention is to be as respectful to all the people represented by these memorials as possible, and to the other users of this site. I take absolutely no offense at recommendations, corrections, transfer requests, etc. And mean no offense when submitting corrections. The more accurate the memorials, the better for those looking for their loved ones, both to pay their respects and/or for genealogists interested in their family or local history.

Memorial transfer
Hi Dale and Barbara,

I would appreciate the transfer of
Memorial 1349 49698 of David E. Piper.

His great-grandfather and my grandmother were older brother and younger sister, both who immigrated to Rockford from Sweden c.1903.

There is a Piper Family Headstone, but dad Charles A. Piper, and mom Diane L. Piper are alive to the best of my knowledge, so they don't have a memorial # although you've posted a photo of the family headstone along with David's headstone.

Thanks much
Lenda Erickson Earl

Are you related to John Martin Pearson (1870-1941) who is buried in North Burritt Cemetery in Winnebago Co.?
He had a half brother who I am trying to research who is Alfred Nelson of Rockford (1879-1938). Alfred is my great grand uncle. Trying to find more information on that side of the family.

Hinckley Stones in Roscoe Cem 2
Sorry, Dale. I went back to the website and looked at the alphabetical list and found that there are more but listed as Hinkley without the C. And Jared was there even though the name on the tall stone is spelled with the C.
Again thanks for all your work.
