Bio and Links
Bio Photo We met on the internet late 2004. We are both Leos and have a lot of things in common.

We both enjoy history, learning more about Native Americans and their old ways, nature and genealogy. We attend re-enactments and powwows when we can. On September 6, 2009, we became members of the Taylorville Black Horse Pow Wow committee.

!! We recommend to ANYONE interested in history and/or Native Americans, that if you have never attended a pow wow, do so.. you will be amazed at how you feel after doing so. We would like for today's children and grandchildren to grow and learn from the Native Americans. Their ways should not be forgotten. !!

Between the two of us we have six children and *eleven!* grandchildren.
*Tresa's newest granddaughter arrived March 6, 2012.*

Doug is originally from Georgia, moved to Kentucky for seven years, then to Illinois four years ago. His family remained in Kentucky.

Tresa was born and raised in Illinois, spending most of her life in Effingham County. Her family has grown and remains in the same area.

Elisha Greenberry Morrison #39857953
Where did you get these names? Are you a relative?
First of all Elish Morrison is a sister to Greeberry Morrison who is her brother. Elisa was born in 1849 Greenberry was born in 1853 to John Morrison and Sophrone Calhoon Morrison. They are all most likely buried there with the Morrison Stonemarker along with several other sisters and brothers. Adolphus Morrison is also their son and he is buried there. He married Barbara Ann Summey.

They are part of my Ancestry. I am a Worley, my Grandfather's mother was a Summey.

If you transfer this memorial to me I can correct all this for you. Please let me know what you decide. Thanks

Larry Shadwell
Hi you two,
Sorry I haven't written to you, had a lot of problems with my puter, and the kids went and got me a new one. Well I am trying to learn how to use it. It has Vista instead of Windows. Slow but sure maybe. I didn't know Larry, but his obit was in my Shadwell book that my cousin had sent me before she passed, so I entered it. After all he is a Shadwell. I read his obit, and he does have a daughter Julie surviving. Hope this finds you all well. It has been cold here, already had a hard freeze, and snow in the higher mountains. Take care.

RE: Niswanger headstones
You are very welcome. The headstone for Jacob was very intriguing. I am always interested in reading the inscriptions on the older headstones. If I can find anything else for you, please let me know.

Niwanger headstones
I found Rebecca, Jacob and James' headstones. The lady in the office at the cemetery said these were the hardest to find that she has searched for yet. They are all very old and very hard to read. Rebecca's headstone is broken and leaned against the base of hers. I wrote down what the headstone for Jacob says

"Jacob Niwanger
Who was born March 6, 1779
Who was married to Rebecca Roar(the spelling may be wrong it was very hard to read)
July 4, 1799

And who departed this life May 5, 1836
Aged 59 years 1 month and 19 days."

Rebeccas only had her name on it and James' just had
Born Oct 10, 1825
Died Aug 3, 1846

I hope this helps some. They were very hard to read so I may have some of the dates wrong. I am sorry about that.

RE: Reta McCain Headstone
Again thank you for being so kind. I would love for you to do some lookups at Funkhouser Cemetery. My Grandma and Grandpa Shadwell are buried there, along with many of my Aunts and Uncles that I have in my memorials. My parents are buried at Rinehart Cemetery on the highway that goes toward Watson. I have forgotten if it is 33 or 45. Please contact me and I will work on getting the requests in tomorrow. I think I will have to remove some as they only allow 20 I believe. Well anyway again I do thank you from this old lady. God bless you.
