Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised north of Chicago in Lake County. Although I now live in Minnesota, my roots are planted in southern Illinois along the Ohio River. I grew up hearing stories of my ancestors and visited cemeteries as a common occurrence. As I research my extensive branches I often have more questions than answers. I enjoy meeting new cousins and get excited when the puzzle pieces start to fall into place. My husband shares my passion and since we retired young we spend much of our free time in the genealogy libraries, online and volunteering.

When I answer a request to take a photo or look for headstones, I often take as many photos of that cemetery as possible and add photos to various genealogy sites online.

If you have any questions, would like to make additions or corrections please feel free to notify me. If I am not a direct descendant I will be happy to transfer to you.

My thanks to Findagrave and all the volunteers, this is a wonderful forum and I'm honored to participate.

Lacy Hollow Cemetery
I am trying to determine the physical location of this cemetery. I have tried search engines and the Hardin County Sheriff's Office to no avail. Can anyone help me find this cemetery? There are lists of who is interred there, but not where it is located. terry.mick@frontier.com

Marilla Angeline Godwin
You have added "Ann" Godden to Find A Grave #53935906. She was my 3rd Great Grandfathers sister and the daughter of Alexander M Godwin. Will you Please change her last name to Godwin and if possible her first and middle to Marilla Angeline. it was good to know that John Acton's 3rd wife was the person that took care of Ann in her final days. And from your post I will assume her last name was Wright.

Thanks wes

I have been looking for his father. I think his name is Robert V. Hughes. Do you have any more info on him. My grandfather was Emmett T. Hughes. I am thinking that Robert V. Hughes stayed in England/ Wales. My grandmother use to say we were Welch.I am a Daugherty of the confederacy and I would like to know more about the Hughes family.
