|Bio and Links|
I am retired but do freelance writing for the Danville, IL Commercial-News. Began doing genealogy in 1966 and just can't seem to stop looking for family names.|
I graduated from Hoopeston High School in 1961 and attended DACC and Eastern Illinois University, obtaining a BA in Elementary Education. It wasn't the field I intended to go into but the councilor at the time discouraged me from my chosen field which was history, saying there were no jobs in this area in that field.
I have more than made up for the councilor's advise, however, by writing about and researching history and helping others in their family searches. I really enjoy the research.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you and to update my findagrave file. I would love as much info on John and his parents as possible. Glad to hear from you and look forward to hearing from you soon. My email address is email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Talk to you soon

Thank you! What a mess between these two cemeteries. I saw a map yesterday when I was working on them and understand why there is such confusion. I guess if you enter from one side you see Forest Park but don't know where it ends and if you enter from the other you see Georgetown, same thing. Let me know if you see any others of ours that are dups. I only entered about a dozen in the two and most are not related, just family names that I happened across and figured they would tie in somewhere for someone (Bratton's and Spicers, with a Hall and a Stark thrown in for marriages).

I deleted 4 or 5 other memorials that I had listed in Forest Park that were dups of yours in Georgetown. I did make the assumption that you have them in the right place! There are still a lot of dups in the cemetery but those were entered by someone else.

We are getting closer - I moved all of my Brattons to Georgetown from Forest Park and deleted my two parents (Robert & his wife) and linked my entries for the two sons (Paul and Charles) to your entries . . . since you deleted Paul, only Charles remains as a dup. If you could delete his entry, that would resolve our dups for this family.
There are a lot of dups between the two cemeteries as there seem to be confusion about who is buried where. Hopefully this resolves our issues, if you find any others between us, just let me know and we can work on fixing them. I would like everyone to be in the right place. The dups were pointed out by another individual so I'm glad we are able to resolve.

Thank you for making the changes. I do have another request for the links to Catherine Ballinger (mother of a couple of the children). Catherine married David J. Pettis in 1882 after the death of James Patrick O'Bryant. There is a link to her headstone in the Parish Cemetery under the last name of Pettis.
|BuzBailey||RE: Elizabeth Brachall|
Thanks much Carol. I look forward to adding some info to her memorial, as well as her parents over in Vermilion Grove. - Buz Bailey
|BuzBailey||RE: Elizabeth Brachall|
You're welcome Carol. Thank you for all your photos and memorials. Elizabeth Brachall is my great, great grandmother. I have some additional info that can be added to her memorial. May I send it to you, or would you be willing to transfer her memorial?
Thanks - Martin (Buz) Bailey
