Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Illinois and love genealogy and find a grave. I like to try and fulfill any requests for fag and am willing to help anyone who needs it.
I am willing to transfer any sites I do to family members. Lately I am getting emails asking about Information on some people that I have input. Please use the EDIT BUTTON. I am not into how many photos I can post with the information like it is some kind of race to do the most. I just want to do the best job I can and I am always open for suggestions on my errors when asked.
This is a great site for people looking for genealogy family and for loved ones.

RE: samuel smallwood

Your re-retyping of the obit for Samuel Smallwood (43593800) still contains errors, unfortunately. This is exactly why an image of the 1887 obituary is more useful (i.e., more reliable) for researchers. I've look at some of your other retyped obits (e.g., Jerome Smallwood 43593812, Joseph Smallwood 43594138, etc.) and they also contain errors. Your efforts are appreciated, but are unfortunately unreliable. My wife is related to the Smallwood family, so I also have a personal interest in accurate information.

RE: samuel smallwood

There is no copyright violation with the obituary at Memorial# 43593800 because it was published in 1887. Your retyping contains several errors, and so the original image is more useful to family researchers and it also gives the source (which your retyping does not).

And thank you for all you have done to make this wonderful web-service work. I'm far away from my ancestors' homes, and your acts of kindness help me feel closer to them. JSC

RE:Susan McCluskey Riley
I'm not sure what happens when you transfer a memorial to me., but I'll try to answer questions or otherwise figure it out. I sent you the information that I'm working on finding records for this family's other children, but I have nothing new to post.

RE: torrences
It's been done. If you sent them to me 2 times, I never received the first ones. The 2 I received today were the only ones I got from you.

RE: bluford richardson
Hi Janet - I am 79 years old and updating my files likely for the last time. Handing a file off to me is like placing them in a black hole. All these people and the sources can be found in WorldConnect files in or you can ask me and I will help if I can.
Good Luck

RE: bluford richardson
Hi Janet - Thank you for responding. Bluford Jr. and Laura are my grandparents. I have been searching without success for her cemetery which I have been told is in Los Angeles Co., CA. Still looking.
Bluford W. Richardson (1875 - 1898) Is her spouse not her sibling.
You have Arthur Raymond Smith (1879 - 1970)**(**Half-sibling) of Bluford but he is Laurel's next younger brother. Bluford has three half siblings and I will check sent them to you but they are not in
Mary Rachel Mullinix Smith (1856 - 1890) is the mother of Laurel not Bluford Jr.
Bluford Wiley Richardson, Jr. Find A Grave Memorial# 62531767, son of Bluford Wiley Richardson Find A Grave Memorial# 14631605 and Mary Sophronia Burton Find A Grave Memorial# 14631610, married 28 Jul 1893 Lovington, Moultrie Co., IL Laurel Belle Smith daughter of William S. Smith Find A Grave Memorial# 14631561 and Mary Rachel Mullinix Find A Grave Memorial# 14631569. Laurel married 2nd 1908/9 Robert Wesley Campbell Find A Grave Memorial# 77057389, who married first 31 Dec 1890 Hattie M. Ensor Find A Grave Memorial# 77057511
I will check this again to be sure I have the above correct. I do make errors!
Thanks for all your work

B. Turman, Ill.
Thank you for your reply and information. I'm not related but a family member I was looking for had a mother with a "Turman" m/n. Was looking to link her.
Always wonder when there is just an initial, if it is a woman or man. I did a search and I think he could be Bedford. But not sure. A family history site showed those who had him in their background from this area and time. What is there is there. It is great that you take photos. Helps so many persons. Again, thanks.

RE: paul grisby

Janet ~ so sorry, I just checked my Find A Grave correspondence folder & don't find Paul Grigsby's obit., don't know what happened.

If you could send it to me again I'd be glad to add it to his Find A Grave. memorial.
