Bio and Links
Bio Photo Feel free to contact me with any corrections or additions to my listings!

Please use the "Edit" tab for making changes to data fields; and select "suggest any other correction or addition" to:
1) Add other info outside the data fields
2) To (optional) provide documentation for changes
3) To request a memorial transfer

I'm happy to transfer individuals unrelated to my family (or more closely related to you), or if you have some special interest in them.

Gravestone photos which I have taken may be freely used for any legitimate genealogical or historical purpose. Please click on the photo to make sure that it's mine, and that I did not just add it; I will credit original photographer.

Please also feel free to add more photos to the memorials - portraits, snapshots, etc. If you need more photo slots just let me know; if you have a better gravestone picture I'm fine with deleting mine.

And here's a standing "Thank you" to the usual suspects, for sending corrections, links & additional info for the local memorials; I know your work is impeccable!

**PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR INFO!**

Primary focus is documenting West Aurora Cemetery. Nearly all marked graves now have photos posted; a few fallen, broken, and overgrown stones still need to be identified and photographed. (About half of the documented burials are known to be unmarked.) Please check out the "unknowns" if you are missing a family member who you think might be buried at West Aurora!

Currently trying to merge duplicate memorials at West Aurora. If you see any that have been missed, please post below.

Note: The burial record transcript for West Aurora is incomplete, particularly for earlier decades, and has no entries at all from mid October 1883 to late May 1884.

Re: MOSTOW FAMILY
Hello Lisa,
I wish to thank you for all the family information you posted about the Mostow family. They are related to me on the ERWIN side of my mother's family. The information was a great help in filling in the blanks that I may have not found through searching!
Best regards,
Cynthia

RE: Pattermans at Marywood
Thank. I always find it interresting to see what gets reported. Dorothy was actually born in Staebelow, Germany. Holldorf was her maiden name. She had three sons out of wedlock in Germany, John, Henry and Fred. I received a rather extensive genealogy from one of Fred's decendants several years ago.

I'm not sure why the headstone was never engraved with her date of death, unless she was actually buried elsewhere in the cemetery.
