Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired career Firefighter from Illinois. My wife and I have also been on a volunteer fire department for years. My mother was interested in genealogy for more than 50 years and infected us with the bug more than 35 years ago. After retiring, my wife and I really began to do in depth genealogy research and enjoy trying to connect all the family information we can get a hold of. We found that Find-A-Grave was a great tool to use to help locate and link information (like trying to put a big jigsaw puzzle together). We really enjoy going to different cemeteries and taking pictures of stones for requestors across the country. It is always quiet and very seldom does anyone talk back to you.
We have done a lot of work with the cemeteries in Keokuk County, Iowa which is where my parents and several generations of my family came from. We have also started adding names from around our home area in western Illinois.
If we have entered a name of one of your friends or relatives and you wish to add it yourself, please let us know. We don't mean to offend anyone. Please let us know of any errors or corrections.
If you have any questions, E-mail us, but remember to put Find-A-Grave in the subject line.

RE: Lucile Rogers posting
Sorry for your loss. No problem, whenever a family member wants to post a page I delete mine as I would rather see family have their own pages.

RE: Andrew Patterson
Thanks for your input on Andrew Patterson. Andrew was my Uncle and I knew little about him. I knew his mother and step father very well. I use to mow there grass on a lot they had in New Hope, Lincoln Co., MO. As a teenager I still remember Uncle Andrew coming to visit my grandmother Altha Williams on the farm in Elsberry, MO. He came in his long nose pontiac. It had a straight eight engine and a Indian Head lite up on the hood. That was probably in the early to mid 50's. The Pontiac I believe to be in the late 40's. I'm still trying to find info on his sister Ruby that I believe married a Wood and lived in LA. Thanks again for you input. Bart Williams

Andrew Patterson
Thank you so much for this memorial of Andrew Patterson. I have been searching to him a long time to add him to our family tree on ancestry.com. I remember him visiting us on the farm and driving a big long nose pontiac. I was a late 40's car with a straight eight engine instead of a V8. I live with his aunt on the farm at Elsberry, MO and his mother lived 6 miles from us in New Hope, MO.
I sent a link request for him to his mother Estella Ory.

Thank you so much for transferring the memorial of my cousin to me. I have 1 more favor if it isn't too much. There are already 3 pictures of the headstone on there. Would you mind removing the one you have so I can upload a picture of David from high school that his wife wants on there. I'd appreciate it so much. Thank you for all you do for findagrave!

Thank you for taking the photo of my ancestor's grave stone in Springdale Cemetery, Clinton Co., Iowa! Yes, it is falling apart & I have never been able to get to the cemetery, so I'm very grateful for your efforts.
