Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in St Paul, MN but my parents were born in South Dakota; my mother Bonnie LaChance was born in Turton and my father, Darrel Rainford, near Doland.

I take photos when I drive my mother to South Dakota for events or when I travel, hunting ancestors in Europe. Most of the biographical info is from my family tree which is public on Ancestry.

I'm a history buff, interested in immigration and settlement patterns. I visited the villages in Rhineland and the Czech Republic where my GGGrandparents originated.

My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice.

If you are related to or were friends with any person that I have entered, that I am not related to, I will transfer the memorial upon your request - even if not required by the F.A.G. policy of 4 generations.

If you find errors or have additional info on any of my submitted items, I welcome your input.

Robin: Good to hear from you! I do have the Rockwell surname in my family line, married into, but can't really say if it's your Rockwell family. I get my information from several sources, to include Family Search, Social Security Death Index, People Search, Ancestry and a little known website called Fehmarn Genealogy, which is devoted to the Germans who came from the Island of Fehmarn, Germany. Yes, there are pictures on Ancestry, that is where I copied them. I feel pictures on any website are fair game. You have to pay dues for Ancestry and most do not want to do that. Find-A-Grave is free, but loaded to the brim with "rules", which I don't really pay too much attention to, and other don't as well. Feel free to copy any pictures you see. My family tree, which I created using Word and kept on a USB drive, totals 600 odd pages. This Rockwell that married into my line, they were later divorced. I'm thinking there was another Rockwell that married into my line, but can't recall who right now. My family is from eastern Iowa, but my lines are all over the map! Good luck to you!

RE: Charles George Rainford and Mary Clifton
George passed away in Frankfort, Will County, Ill. Walter and wife Bertha Rainford are buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Frankfort. George and Mary might be there, just not listed.

RE: John Jacob Klapperich d 1959
You are very welcome. Glad I could help. I looked at the cemetery database & there is a Harriet Klapperich listed there who died in 1963. She should be very close to her husband but when I worked that section I obviously didn't see a stone. May be unmarked or I missed it.
