Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy doing research in family history, and especially like to search the old Swedish parish records for ancestors of my family who arrived from Sweden in the 1850's. These immigrants ended up settling in Paxton (Ford Co.), Illinois, where most are buried in Glen Cemetery.

Currently I maintain the records for the Lyman Township Cemetery in Roberts (Ford Co.), Illinois. Find A Grave now contains records for almost all of the burials at this cemetery. Most of the information is based on written records that have been kept from the first burial in 1868 to the present. I'll try to add more family relationship links and bio details and to contribute more photos. I'm happy to fulfill requests for volunteer photos at this cemetery.

You have my permission to use any photos that I have posted for genealogy purposes.

RE: John Lee Brackney
I have no proof of his burial there. His son, Charles Brackney, told me that years ago. He did not know where his mother, Lola Cunefare Brackney, was buried.

Date of Death Change
Hi, Carolyn. I need to change the date of death for Mr. August Kaeding Sr. It should read 1876 instead of 1867. Sorry.

Julia Alvine (Kietzman/Kitzman) married August Kaeding Sr. in Germany in 1865. He died in 1867; then she married William Guderjohn.

Thank you for letting me know of her death and correcting my record on her parents. Are you related. She is a distant in-law relative and I would be glad to give her to someone nearer. Click the Edit button if you want her.
