Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 7 years now, focusing on my female lines, which can be difficult. I prove everything I find - by spending long hours in courthouses, cemeteries, libraries, etc. I travel to the places my ancestors hail from - mostly the UK, central Illinois, southwest Virginia and Pennsylvania. Due to the amount of intense research, my volunteering with UK historical societies, my time is limited, therefore I will only post the basic information on the pages I add to Find-A-Grave as well as a picture if I have one handy. However, if you would like a photo from a McLean County or Woodford County cemetery and I am in the area, I will be happy to snap a photo for you, as well as any cemetery in the O'Hare airport area and the UK.

Joseph Sullenger
RE: Sullinger - South Point cemetery
Excuse me for the late reply. I haven't checked for messages on here in a long while. The family's last name is Sullenger, not Sullinger. I have been told by another older family tree researcher that it has always been "EN" clear back to Germany. The best he could find was that our original immigrant ancestor came to this country around 1680. My GGGrandfather William came to MO with his family around 1838-9 from NC and they settled in Ray county. Anymore questions I will gladly respond.

Leola Glover
Hi Jodie,

Leola's grave at Glendale is unmarked. I took a photo of the plot with some flowers marking the spot. Let me know if you want me to upload that.

RE: Sullinger - South Point cemetery
How I am related to what? I have ancestors buried in South Point Cemetery near Orrick, MO. Also, our surname is Sullenger not Sullinger. Sullenger it has been clear back to Germany in the late 1600s.

Thank you for posting the picture of Isabella Tallon's grave sight. She was my great great grandmother on my mothers side of the family.

George MacDonald & father
His father is listed as Alexander Macdonald (b. 1819 d. Nov. 20, 1887), Find a Grave #21712305. You show his family, brother (drowned at the same time and place as George), and his infant sister, who died when 1 year old, and his Mother.

My question is this, did George get buried, or does your research show he was never found?

Also, I completely appreciate your depth of research. Wish I could do the same. It certainly isn't easy for the serious Genealogist. I find so many deadends, repeats, etc. No on seems to want to clean up their mess. Therefore, mine is a mess until I can get the time to sort it out. I am 70 years old and wish I could get it first hand, not so confusing.

Thank you again, for the time and effort you put into genealogy research, Clairine Johnson

You would be surprised at the number of unmarked graves in the years following the Civil War. It took over fifty years for some families to recover, only to loose it again during the depression.

Ruge's at Arlington
Thank you SO very much, Jodie!

As I live 1,800 miles from my home of Chicago, I was not able to visit this cemetery in person.

Like you, the female line of my family is my focus of research. I checked Find a Grave only last fall, and was so surprised to see something new come up in my search. You can imagine my surprise... and delight!

Anna Witt Ruge is my great-great Grandmother on my mother's side.

Wanted to let you know I fulfilled this photo request. In the same plot are Willie Haire and Willie Myrtle Haire--in her obituary it says that Willie Lubertha Brown is her niece. There was also a photo request from another member for Willie Haire, so I was able to add the photos for all of them.
