Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Fayette County Il. area and weather permitting can take cemetery photos at request. If you are a family member or researcher you may use them for your trees. In turn please pay it forward by doing the same kindness for another if you can.
Sharing just a small story, working down at the tail of Fayette co. and I saw my first red fox, what a blessing after it finally saw me and ran toward the woods it turned to look at me and pose for a photo.

I think it is wonderful that Find a Grave and Ancestry have teamed up and these links connect with searches. Cemetery records are a great source that we put on the memorials that cannot be found on Ancestry. I get joy out of finding members of families that don't have any records. I do this from the heart and please feel free to use my stone photos for your trees.

RE: William Burton/Blurton
thank you for the notation to clarify the last name difference. I was hesitant to add the link because of the difference.

I was at the library and found a book with a list of burials for St. Marys & Forest Home Cemetery of Crivitz.... so I added the names onto Find A Grave, {now affiliated with} in hopes that families seeking their ancestors would be able to locate them.... as was in your case.
A lot of work and many, many hours, but so very worth it!
The State of Wisconsin is very stingy about putting information out there for genealogy and only a few counties have strong historical societies that aid researchers.

So very glad that you were able to find your ancestor!

RE: James Hudspeth
Anna: thanks for adding the photograh of the stone for James Hudspeth. I don't know if I told you or not but there was a Hudspeth, don't remember his name but the Archives in Franklin, KY would. He was instrumental in the town of Franklin being where it is. Some others wanted to have it close to Drakes Creek but he dug a well in Franklin and did not hit water so he brought barrels of water and put in the well and convinced people to build Franklin there becuase there was water there. the well was dug on what is now the yard of the courthouse.

James Hudspeth
Ann: Thank you so much for being so prompt with the photograph of the tombstone. It was a great picture and I noticed he was in the military would you add that to his biogrpahy? It looked like he was Capt in Co. K 8?th KY CAV. I have put the Hugspeth memorials on find a grave and plan to go to Kentucky this week end and take pictures of all of the stones that I can find. Thanks so much for your help.

James Harvey Hudspeth
Anna: I have been working on the family of James Hudspeth and in an edit I have asked you to approve adding his parents to his web site. I would like to have this complete before I finish my research if you would approve the addition. Thank you.

RE: Meseke
Awesome....thank you very much!!!
Added by Jessica on Nov 19, 2014 1:16 PM
Any info you find on the Meseke name would be appreciated. I have tried to look for the historical society of Fayette Co. and find any records, but they don't have much on the Internet. If you know where to locate any records for my great-grandmother, I would be indebted.

Louise Wilhelmine Maria Meseke
Birth 27 October 1873 in Vandalia, Fayette, Illinois, USA
Death 5 April 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Her parents were:

Wilhelm "William" Meseke
Birth January 1842 in Germany (lived in WI, moved to IL and back to WI)
Death abt. 1910 in Washington State

Mary "Maria" Moser
Birth 1847 in Wisconsin
Death in Washington or Wisconsin

That would be wonderful...if you have a digital copy, you could send it to my e-mail. Louise Meseke b in Vandalia, IL was my great-grandmother and her father was William Meseke from WI. They moved back and forth from WI to IL and back to WI. We barely knew anything about their family and I have been piecing together the MESEKE name in Fayette Co. and into St. Louis, trying to connect these. If you are family and have, please look at my tree (PAULUS_PIEMONTE FAMILY TREE)and see if it can help you and if I have the correct info. I have been going by records and the few who have been working on this surname. William married Mary Moser and I have no other info on her. Still trying to figure that one out. Thanks for your help

Jose "PePe" Lara
Anna, I think the dates on your memorial of Jose are incorrect. As seen on the head stone, it seems they dates should be 1921-1973. The dates 0f 1911-1977 are for Joe Lara interred in the Garden of Veterans. I made the assumption your wanted Jose, spouse of Helen.
