I remember going to the Newbury Library in Chicago and being so happy at finding my grandparents in the 1910 they are just a click away on Can not believe how genealogy has changed.

Thomas Luther Goddard & Sarah Jane Smith Goddard Morris

I have been unable to find the grave sites for my great-grandparents: Thomas Luther Goddard (1836-1865) and Sarah Jane Smith Goddard (1837-1929) (later, the wife of Chester Morris).

Sarah's obit says she was to be buried in the Cornell IL cemetery. I was unable to find her stone. Is she in an unmarked grave, or is she in another cemetery.

All I have on Thomas is a birth date and a place of birth. He died in 1865 in Pontiac IL. No date of death or place of burial or cause of death.

Can you help me?

RE: Minnie Zwang
It looks possible, according to the Illinois Deaths and Stillbirths database, that Minnie Zwang, wife of Theodore Zwang, was born Minnie Harding. She is buried at Riverview Cemetery in Streator. So, where does the name Swatzer come in? Are they the same people? I'll keep digging.

Can't find grandparents grave
Hi my name is Lynn Clay. I found quite to my surprise this sight with my parent's headstone picture at St. Anthony cemetary in Streator, Illinois. My grandparents Elizabeth & William Faulkner are buried there also and I can't find any record of it. Can you help me?
Thank you for your time and trouble.

RE: Anna or Catherine Aufdenspring
I will see what I might be able to find and let you know, possibly even as soon as tomorrow. I just didn't want you to think I was ignoring you.

RE: Alice Lawless
Alicia was my grandfather's sister. I do believe the 1873 is very close as in 1880 she was 8, Thomas was 5 and George was 3. William had not been born yet. I agree you have to be careful of census records but when I see a pattern of the same age within a year or so I feel more confident it could be correct. I have no idea which church they attended. Because my grandfather was in his father's second family in Nebraska, I have only just found Alicia and family recently. I have a copy of her father's will that lists her in it.

Baby Zingerlie
You sent me the wrong link, but I figured out who you were talking about. I did not add the photo of Baby's gravestone. Contributor Michael did. I notified him that it is not the right photo for Mary Zingerlie.

I already had the correct photo for Mary, and added it to Mary's memorial. He will have to remove Baby's photo from Mary's memorial since he posted it. We can't do that. I hope he will create a new memorial for Baby and add his gravestone photo.

I have done all I can do at this point. I sent him the info for Baby's name being Rose Marie and the birth/death date you told me. Thanks, Pam

RE: Udpovgiva or Matt
Udpovgiva is the Croatian version of Matthew. More than likely back then, you were called by a nickname, usually short for your full name. In this case Matt. On his sins marriage record, the father saids Matt.

RE: Orin Goddard
I deleted my edit of Ancona, and resubmitted it as Manville.

If that is wrong, change it to what is right.

RE: Andro Zelar and Susie Siroka
Did you want me to do something with this information?

I found Robert Carl Micklus and put him on Find A Grave and linked him with Mike and Dora. Someone else also put him on Find A Grave but she is inactive so I made another memorial for Robert and put his obit on his memorial and also made a request for the original transfer over to me. Linda
