Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you have more information on any of my entries, or if you have corrections, please feel free to contact me & I will get it updated!

I believe that every time someone passes away, we lose something that can't be replaced.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE researching family history. I enjoy walking in cemeteries, reading stones & figuring out their stories. It's all like a puzzle to me. If I can't figure something out the direct route, I will research alternate routes until I find the information I'm looking for.

I am interested in the following names: Burrell, DeBoer, Dieckman, Eertmoed, Ertmoed, Everwein, Fancher, Freed, Graumann, Hardy, Janssen, LandiVittori, Poe, Rawlings, Rodcay, Rodkey, Tyler, VanMeter, Vittori, Weber, Whitcomb, Whitman.

-I am a host to 5 GenealogyTrails sites.

NOTE: In Tazewell Co IL, Lakeside & Oakgrove are 2 individual cemeteries with no clear disctinction of where Oakgrove begins & Lakeside ends. There is bound to be error & confusion because of this. Just by looking at the 2, you wouldn't know there are 2 different cemeteries. There is no signage, to my knowledge, for Oakgrove.

Reba Null memorial

The memorial you created for Reba Null Find A Grave Memorial# 116826666 needs to be deleted as she is still very much alive.
Her daughter Carol is my sister in law and I have known her mother Reba for almost 40 years.

Christian Bonk
Hi, Got a message with a link for a bio for Christian Bonk. Not sure why he sent it to me, but thought I would pass it on. Problem is that it is german. I did try translating with bing, but not sure it tranlated very well. Giving you the link and you can decide what to do. Hope you are having a nice spring finally.

RE: James Riley Fancher & Family
Hi! You did get the right cemetery. It's not possible for me to take photos. I live in Arizona. Just click the request a photo button. I've taken the information from the Posey township cemeteries published by the Washington County Historical Society, revised in 1991.

Dear Desiree,

It would be greatly appreciated if you were able to transfer John Goodheart #2369001 to my account #47154391. I have extensive biographical information as well as family links. Thanks again for all of your fine work.

Salem Cemetery
I am just a member of find a grave. I notice you have a memorial in the Salem Cemetery. Living close by I wondered where it was as I hadn't heard of it. There are now 20 memorials listed there but it is "Crown Hill Cemetery" in Salem IN. It is going to get rather confusing to have Crown Hill listed as Salem. Here is the link to a searchable database of Crown Hill.
Thanks, mandopkr
