Bio and Links
Bio Photo Personally I have been photographing graveyards and doing family genealogy from a young age.... and have meet alot of people looking for thier family, so I shoot a little more each time I go to a cemetery in hopes that it helps someone out!
I have added to several graveyards in LaSalle County Illinois.and some others of family interest, mostly in and near the towns of North Utica, LaSalle, Peru, Oglesby (which does NOT have a graveyard but uses neighboring cemeteries) Mendota, SpringValley, DeerPark, Ottawa and still expanding when I can. I do a small section of about 100 graves each time I go.... trying to add the older graves I find 1st due to the fact some are slowly fadeing out and are unreadable.
Also some info was found in the cemetery books that Also can be accessed through the LaSalle Co. genealogy guild.

Also some of the graves will be marked as No stone those graves were recognized through cemetery records. Every once in awhile I will also include a obit with the grave site. Alot of these graves are also written in German & Polish with a few different dialects so if I have made a wrong translation please contact me as well as if you would like to add to a entry, or if they are a Close relative I would be happy to turn over to you! (NOTE: Do to recent family hardships I don't check here as often as I would like and therefore you may not get answered right away... IF I receive nasty messages I will not accept what you are requesting!So Please be civil this is a courtesy!) At any rate Please keep checking back for updates! I will try to fill requests when I can.... This is a HUGE process! Thank You and leave some flowers for your loved ones.... I like to know when I have helped someone connect! CHEERS! ***Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds***

My Aunt noted that you had created a memorial before the one I did. I have deleted mine and sent out changes to add all of the other links to your memorial. I have also moved another memorial to the Oakwood cemetery, Her husband Karl. I had originally had them in the Peru City cemetery.

thanks sue

Could you please transfer the above memorial # for me at contributor # 48072423? My transfer request button does not work for some reason. Also, if you have any other Pickens family members in Summit View in Ottawa, I'd love to have them if you wouldn't mind.

Thanks! =)

Lucy, thank you for reporting that Rose Zimmerman's grave in Oakwood Cemetery is 'unmarked'. I have asked the memorial manager to note that on her memorial so other photographers will not try to find it.

According to the records that are shown on his memorial, his father was born in England. I am going by the official record of his death and leaving his memorial as is. Thanks anyway.

Duplicate memorial
Not sure if you are checking your edits, so thought I would try again here. It looks like your memorial #28882197 for Fannie Bourne Elliott is a duplicate of your memorial number 23575861 “Janny” Bourne Elliott. If you could make the corrections on the original and remove the duplicate, it could avoid some confusion. Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave.

Thanks for all your hard work. I would never have found this information without you.

You posted a picture of John Henry Johnson; do you have any pictures of his family you could scan and e-mail?

I am connected to his brother Stephen Johnson's side of the family.
