*** Any nasty or disrepectful comments or emails I receive will not be responded to. This site is primarily dedicated to having a small memorial and helping people find loved ones. It's a genealogy AID. If you're like me you have run into those that have lost site of honoring the lost loved ones and are just on here to "beef up a number." ***|
I have been heavily researching my family history for many years, picking up where my father, cousin and great aunt left off, and it has become sort of an obsession. Thankfully our work had paid off and I have been able to help a lot of other people as well. This site as well as my own genealogy site below has allowed me to "meet" a lot of new relatives and cousins along the way. I can't thank everyone enough for passing down so many stories and information over the generations.
All of the memorials I own here are my family. They were mostly centered around Kankakee and Joliet, Illinois. My direct Smith line is finally complete. Also, If you wish to use any grave photos I have posted for your family tree or your own website feel free. Those out there that claim grave photos they post here are copyrighted and threaten to take legal action have way too much time on their hands. It's not art folks, it's a gravestone photo!
I occasionally take photo's for others as a way to thank those that have been kind enough to have taken them for me.
If you are related, let me know and feel free to register and see more on my family here!
P.S. Not sure why anyone would have time or wish to waste energy but nasty comments left on my personal family tree web site (linked to below) by people that think they are sending it in secret will be reported to the admins. Your IP addresses are saved when you submit them. You and I know who you are!
**I have decided to remove a majority of the photos of the people in my family from this site. If you are wanting copies of the Smith or Rice familiy photos, please drop me a line or join my personal site.**

|Rob Srygler||Sovich family photo|
Just wanted to let you know that I found an old family photo of the Sovich family. It's now on their memorial pages, hope you enjoy!
Hi! Photos posted, but the light on the North side of the memorial, plus a worn memorial, did not result in great photos. Unfortunately the hours of this cemetery are 8:30 - 4:30 all year round, so getting a photo at 7:00 PM on a summer evening when the light would result in a better photo is not possible. I took photos with a flash as well, but that did not help.
She is on the same grave marker as Anton and Erech. Anton is on the South side and Erech is on the East side of the memorial. My photos for them are much better. If you would like additional photos for them please post a photo request. Ace

|amys||Eliza & Henry Rogers monument|
Hiya - Today in Columbia Cemetery, I got photos of the monument for Eliza and Henry Rogers (54900800, 54900751). This is one of the really cool monuments that was recently repaired and made the news here. (The back side of this one was damaged.) Anyway, I see that you had already added a photo of the overall large monument to Henry and Eliza's memorials. I have close-ups of the individual plaques on the monument. Would you mind if I add these to the memorials, so that people who are interested in the inscriptions could maybe read them a bit more easily? Thanks, Amy (#47855684)

Updates made. Thanks for the information.

Thank you Andrew I will contact Ancestry.com about their mistake and link mistake! Sorry for the inconvenience.
|It.is.what.it.is Ü||RE: Stone Family|
Thank you so very much for responding. I'm sending you an email in a few minutes. I'm sorry that I didn't include my email address in my initial message to you. You'll be hearing from me shortly :) Thank you again.
I was able to find a bit of information on WW Stone and his wife, Mary. (Found a really interesting obit on Mary's father!) I think they're buried at Prairie Home because that's where Mary's parents are buried.
I'd be happy to add any information on Mr. Stones and make any links to his family for you.
Hope this helps your research!
