Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the retired District Librarian for the Quincy Public School District in Quincy, IL and live in Hannibal, MO. I began a serious study of my family tree in 1968 at the age of 16 and have pursued my family history ever since. It's amazing how the search for information has changed in the past 45 years from searching the census on microfilm, writing letters to courthouses and visiting libraries to the digital information now available!

My interest centers around Marion Co., MO, and Pike and Adams Counties in IL.

My family surnames include Adkins, Shinn, Williams, Gudgel, Reed, Chandler and Haydon, among others too numerous to list. My genealogy is available on and includes over 17,000 individuals.

Your information is great but I believe it leaves out the most important part. If they are mot buried in the Akers Cememtery, where are they buried wo that I can make that change. I would rather not take him out of all cemeteries altogether. I am a descendant of his brother the Rev. Levi Shinn. I also have no problem with giving the memorial to you as you said he is a direct ancestor. I do know that it is far enough back that I am not required to give you the memorial but I think if possible direct descendants should be in control. Just for reference my line from his brother Levi Shinn is Asa Shinn, Levi Shinn, Emery Shinn, Sally Shinn Riddle and me Robert Riddle. I have created a memorial for me although I am still kicking.

Duplicate entries?
Hi, Mia and Tom,

There seem to be two entries for the same person in different cemeteries. Can you determine which is correct? Find A Grave#118356025 and Find A Grave# 125846362--only diference is year of birth, 1894 in one, 1895 in the other; same death date in both.

Transfer requests
when you read my bio, you will see that comments left in the SAC box for editor will be ignored. I CAN NOT copy or paste your member number for a transfer. You need to send me the number so that I can copy it via the old SAC way
