Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired federal employee who has been involved in chasing my families for more than forty-five years. For the past fifteen years I have enjoyed helping other researchers gather data from western Iowa, which I now call home. A number of the local cemeteries I walked and recorded in the past yet now with the digital age, it appears as they once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." So as not to be wording I have invested in a digital camera and continue my strolls through the local cemeteries .

RE: Francis Johnston # 76855674
I'm not certain where Robson came from. I often ask for evidence before making links. Hence, I may have trusted the material, or else it potentially came from a local genealogist. She's been so reliable in the past, I do not always double check her. I did a bit of looking on Ancestry (censuses) and determined to delete her as a parent in this case.

RE: Susan Robson 70820139
Good question. I'm not finding anything. Since the links can only be added from child to parent, I'm thinking perhaps I do not make them. I've searched through all my edits sent/received & there is nothing there, but it could have been before the new edit system was in place. Illinois marriage records show that a Mrs. Susan Johnston married a Samuel Robson in Mercer County on 07/07/1865. So, perhaps they are her children from her first marriage? I am unable to confirm this though. Please let me know if you discover this was done in error. Thank you. -E.M.

I have added the memorial photos to the earlier memorial page. I am not the manager of the other page. If you let them know that it is a duplicate they can delete the page.

Thanks for taking and posting photos of the headstones of Julius and Wilhelmina Kurdelmier in the Denison cemetery. I didn't realize they spelled their name as "Kurdelmier" until I saw your photo. Thanks again! -- Ken Johnson

Mildred Adle
Thank you for searching for the marker for the infant Mildred Adle buried in the Oakland Cemetery. Even though you found that there was no marker, the information you provided from the records was very helpful and I have included a note on the memorial page indicating that a marker is not there. The three Hovers in that plot were her mother's family. Best, Dan

Thank you for the information, however, since I did not put on the picture, I am not able to take the photo off. You will need to contact the contributor that put on the photo - Anonymous. Thanks.

3 Brothers Johnston
3 Brothers Johnston (John, William, Thomas)

Between 1845 and 1850 three of the sons of William and Mary Johnston of County Fermanaugh, Ireland, removed themselves and there families to the `new world'. They arrived at the port of New Orleans and traveled up the Mississippi River to Rock Island, Illinois. The three brothers and their families settled in Bowling township, Rock Island county and Preemption and Perryton township, Mercer county. The families had a habit of inter-marrying and if one was to look closely at the following chart they would find several cases of first cousins beginning a family. Along with marring other Johnston's, the offspring of the brothers married into other Irish families with the names listed on the heading. The Johnston and Hutchinson name is not as well known in the three township today, as it was 100 years ago, but I am sure there are a number of person who could trace their ancestors back to one of these Orangemen. I would be most interested in corresponding with any person researching these Mercer and Rock Island county names. The following tree only shows the three brothers and their children; much more information is available for those that have an interest in this family.

I may be oldest living descendent of John above. He is my great great great grandfather.

Joseph Johnston (my great great grandfather)
John W. Johnston (my great grandfather)
John L. Johnston (my grandfather)
John Deloss Johnston (my father)

RE: Homestead Cemetery
Mr. Prince -
Sorry for the long delay, but this is in response to your message:
"Just wondered if you had looked at all sides of the tall stone as John Guinty's wife is not listed in this cemetery but their son is. His wife was Mary Agnes and I believe went by her middle name, Agnes, and died prior to him.
John's Grave Memorial# 101539992
Thank you for any help as well as all you have done to offer stone pictures for those of us to far away."
I did look at all sides - Your email came a day after I had been there! I went back to the cemetery recently. The north side of the stone has writing, but the outdoor elements have worn everything away. The west and south side is what I have posted, and the east side is blank. If you want current photos of all sides, I can email them to you, just send me your email. Thanks. J Coker
