|Bio and Links|
I was raised in Bunker Hill IL. My parents were born in Madison Co IL however my father's family moved to Bunker Hill when he was almost 14 years old.|
My father's side of the family has ties to Madison Co, Jersey Co, Greene Co, Montgomery Co and Macoupin Co IL. The main surnames I am researching in his family are Girth, Pruitt including Preuitt and Pruett, Wyatt/Wiatt/Watt, Griffin, Boschert, Carpenter, Curry, Lucas, Sanford, Phinn, Barber, Bradshaw and Lee. Some allied families include Aldrich, Kelly, Sapp, Jones, Cleary, Seago, Arbuckle and Woolsey.
All 4 sets of my gr-gr-grandparents on my mother's side of the family were German immigrants. Surnames being research are Cooper (originally Kuper), Harms, Dettmers, Frerichs, Wulf and Greve. The Frerichs family includes surnames Johnson, Bertels, Heuer and Oldenettel just to name a few. The Greve family includes the surnames Henkhaus, Hesse and Drexelius and also may include Budde. Other allied family surnames include Heeren, Nickel, Gustine, Arbuthnot and Homm.
My husband Harvey was born and raised in Edmundson MO. His parents were born and raised in Campbell, Dunklin, MO. They moved to the St Louis area in 1943. Surnames include Geer, Skidmore, Lee, Sims, Lamar, Perry, McElyea, Randolph, Royal, Sanders, Polsgrove including the original spelling Pfaltzgraff, Henderson, Robinson, Layton, Sammons, Fletcher, Bridges, Davis and Lewis.
I am presently working on a special project for St Mary's Catholic Cemetery which is in Dorchester Township, Macoupin Co IL (about 2 miles southeast of Bunker Hill on Catholic Springs Road). This project is being done not only for the cemetery association but also in coordination with the office which oversees the Catholic cemeteries in the Diocese of Springfield IL. I'm in the process of doing a thorough research of all those buried in this cemetery and I would greatly appreciate receiving any information to aid this project.
I am also working on a burial database for the cemeteries in the Campbell, Dunklin, MO area. Most of the cemeteries in that area do not have records of those buried and are lucky if they have the names of the lot owners. Right now I have over 4,000 burials of which 400 to 500 are unmarked burials. Anyone having information on someone buried in the Campbell area can contact me through this website or privately.

|Ann Maree||RE: Esther Claussen memorial|
Debbi, it sounds like we were both thinking the same thing. It is terrible, but there are people who won't transfer. (I'm sure you know, but if you send an email to the admins of this site they will transfer your husband to you.) I figured you might be a close friend or family of Esther, and I'm sorry for your loss. If I am able to go tomorrow I look forward to meeting you; we are definitely going to the visitation tonight. Thanks for your kind reply to my message.

Hi Debbi, I just sent you a personal message to the email address above. Interested in the name Hendrick, Hendricks, Hendrix.

Thanks for trying to get a photo of his grave marker. Perhaps you could take a photo of the entire monument and then a close-up photo cropped to show his name, much like what I did for the crew of the USS Serpens (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=77138).
|Carole Lee Alexander||Beulah Alexander's Parents|
I got a message from you a couple of weeks ago. Did you post Beulah's parents? I can link them whenever you want. Thanks, Carole

|Leon Barton||RE: George Parkington Cox (#42189617)|
I am not related to George Parkington Cox and I live about 90 miles from Sharon Springs. I didn't find a grave stone for George and the info I entered was taken from the cemetery directory. I did some research and found a a geneology sheet for a wife listed on the cemetery directory name Mary Agusta (Beals). It matched with the info that I entered on Find A Grave and it shows he was born in Bridgeport, Fairfield, Connecticut. See you show your George Cox was born in Illinois so don't think they are the same person. Good luck in your search.
|Neva Valle||RE: Valle family|
from Neva Valle (#48064176)
Glad to hear from you. Sorry that I cannot send you information on the Valle family tonight. I have been gone several days and am really tired.
I had extensive research on the Valle/Vallee/LaVallee family name. Will try to find that info and send it to you.
If you do not hear from me before next Monday - please remind me to look the info up!
|D's Mom||re: Jeremiah Curry|

|Lynn Marie Vint||Mansholt|
Thanks for the link and middle name you sent for Verona Davis. I've added both.
As for the request to remove the link in the Mansholt bios to their daughter, Dee, I'm going to wait until a proper link has been added by the owner of Dee's memorial before I do that.
I agree with you that the other kind of link is preferable. However, you should know that quite some time ago, I sent a request to Barbara Hitch and politely asked that Dee be linked to her parents. After waiting a month with no response, I wrote again. My second note was also ignored, and the links were never added.
I will check the Mansholt memorials again in a few days to see if you were successful in getting links added. In the meantime, if you see that the links are there, please let me know and I will be happy to make the changes you requested.
Again, thanks for your help. I'm always glad to be able to make things more complete!
