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.

transfer request for John Albert Brugman and Mary T Brugman
Dear Dale,

John Albert Brugman was my great uncle, the brother of my grandmother Elizabeth Brugman Van Driel. Elizabeth Brugman Van Driel's daughter was Gertrude Regina Van Driel Eck, my maternal grandmother. Gertrude's daughter, Paula Eck Eichorst, was my mother.

I would very much appreciate your transferring John Albert Brugman 134765014 and my great aunt, his wife, Mary T Brugman, 134765031, to me.

Thank you for your consideration,

Fran Eichorst

Diantha Frisbie Find A Grave Memorial# 135114406
Good morning Dale!

The photograph of Diantha's tombstone is so clear, but one part is unreadable. She would be in my direct line if you wanted to transfer her over to me.

Do you have access - or do you know anyone with access to the tombstone inscription book for Winnebago County? It looks like her tombstone lists her age in years, months, and days.

I appreciate your help, and if your fiance took the photo, please thank her for me!



PS... people like you make genealogy lighter. When you realize how your own direct line can be spread out across this nation, it's like visiting an ancestor's resting place.

Regarding Raymond Wohlfert
I have changed Raymond Wohlfert's # to 152974773 as I found out he is buried in the Eastlawn Cemetery, Beloit. Could you again add him as Henry Wohlfert's father. Henry is # 133539071

Thank you.

Your memorial is a duplicate. The other one was posted earlier and contains much more info. The other one has wrong birth year of 1820 and I have requested correction. Headstone and 1880 census support this. Obit was either wrong in newspaper or miscopied.
