Grew up in a Ranching community in Wyoming, moved to Alaska 47 years ago. Use to be a Cow Girl now I'm just a little old Lady. Enjoy Bicyling Longest trip was in the year 2006 we Pedaled the whole Mississippi River from MN to Gulf of Mexico Yup sure did all 2205 Miles. I'm an outdoor person but in the Winter Time I love to Snowmachine & dig up Dead Relatives. Genealogy is my Passion! "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, Diet Pepsi in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WHOO HOO what a ride!' "
snook I added a Lennie S. Snook Stephenson and her husband Erastus H Stephenson and their only child to White Pigeon and linked them to her parents Herbert and Catherine Snook. Would you like me to transfer
RE: Sarah Dreisbach Stahlnecker (1846-1925) Hi Patsy: Many thanks for the correspondence. Daniel Hiram Dreisbach went by his middle name ("Herham" on the death certificate) who was married at least two and possibly three times. I may have accidentally sent the wrong links, I will resubmit through SAC. Thanks for your attention to detail, I very much appreciate your thoroughness! :-)
RE: Tombstone Photo for Keyesport, IL No as I said before, I only got the two McAlister's as I was walking towards our car to go home. I entered the other three using a spreadsheet with the listing of McKendree burials.
It's easier to make a spreadsheet and then edit and link than it is to make individual memorials. I had 10 to 15 names I wanted to enter, and just filled in the names to get my 25 people for the spreadsheet.
I'm right there with you with wanting to return to Illinois, my first trip took me almost 20 years to get there.
Here you go, check with Lynn if she knows these guys ... Information and photos contributed by Chad Parson and Frank Elam. Maybe google their names.
Chad's got a spreadsheet for the entire cemetery and he doesn't claim proprietary or copyright. Check it out
He has 1891 names. This is actually the same spreadsheet that people use to upload to Find A Grave. Don't know why he didn't do that, or maybe he didn't feel like finding the remaining 700 names. It's pretty exhausting to weed through who has and doesn't have memorials, to avoid duplications.
The McAlister's I have no clue who posted those headstones, I used to just copy and paste to Find A Grave, but have since learned that is a no-no. Perhaps you could contact Lynn Tooley on the web site and ask her for permission. If she doesn't want to give permission, ask her if she will do the posting. Can't hurt. I'd go back for you but I'm in California ... only got to visit that one day.
Thank you for managing the memorials. I always think that family should have them, regardless of the silly rule about transfers. If there are any other memorials that I've posted on Honoring's page, all you have to do is ask.
And when you fly half way across the country to take pictures in a cemetery, it's just plain silly to not take more than what you need. I think my Illinois/Missouri trip I came home with almost 1,000 headstone photos.
