Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

Thanks for the obituary. If you would like this memorial I would be glad to transfer it to you. I just photographed all the stones so there would be a record also. Thanks for what you do and good luck at Terre Haute.

I put Sarah's info on hes and Isaac's on his.

I believe the cemetery picture on the memorial is the Gregory Cemetery in Braxton County not the one they are buried in.

Allingham, Ruth
Hi, I am wondering if you still have the actual photograph of the grave stone for Ruth, wife of Geo. Allingham, died Feb 6, 1824 - I believe the death date should be 1874. This would be at Silent Home Cemetery in Cameron. Is there any way you can check the original photo - maybe even blow it up? Thanks for your attention to my request.

Hi. Nice to hear from you again. I entered the changes you suggested, though I didn't name the living sons, for privacy reasons. Let me know if anything looks "funny." Best wishes......

Terre Haute cemetery

I am a descendant of the Genung's in the Terre Haute, IL cemetery. I would love it if you would transfer their memorials to me.

Thanks you for all the work and photos you have done for others!

RE: Standard Family
Thank you for the transfers. My paternal grandmother's maiden name was Standard. I am working to get the family members linked, that is my first priority. Eventually, I would like to add some biographical information.

RE: William Craig
I'm glad that my information helped.

But I noticed that you accidentally repeated most of the information in his bio section. You show six lines of text. If you delete the bottom three lines, then that will fix it.
