Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for a long time. I am especially interested in Champaign County, Illinois; Douglas Co., Illinois; Effingham Co., Illinois; Crawford Co., Kansas; Lewis Co., New York; Montgomery Co., Illinois. Surnames that I am currently working on are Baldwin, Donsbach, Cook, O'Bryan, Lewis, Fairchild. On Find-A-Grave, I have entered most all of the grave information in our O'Bryan Family Cemetery, Champaign Co., Illinois. I will transfer ownership of a memorial if I am provided the requirements that meet the Find-A-Grave rules. I will not transfer a direct ancestor of mine, but contact me if you have information you would like added.

RE: Mary Oller - Kinder Cemetery
I need to go back and find where I got that information but Wondering if Kramer was a corruption of Kinder. I went back last night and did some more looking and feel your information is good. Perry Commodore Oller is the 2nd great grandfather (Elizabeth Snook) of my cousin..Her grandfather was George Thomas Oller (or Thomas George) married Ida Mildred Dooley. Her grandma was Ruth who married George Neldon and later Clarence Thornton.
I've been chewing on this bone for over 40 years.

I would appreciate you doing the linkage as I am trying to get all cousins linked.
Again, thank you. Barbara Baldwin Donsbach

Hi Barbara,

Not a problem. I am glad I can help out. Just let me know.

All the Smiths have been linked. I have 19 George Smith's in just one list, from our county. Smith researching is quite a challenge.

I just found these markers and got them on Findagrave lately, and they were buried in the lot with other relatives. Do the names Townsend or Weid, mean anything to you. I still have not found a maiden name for Susan Smith.

I am documenting an old historic cemetery, but the fascinating part is so many of my family's ancestors are buried here. Great-gr-gr grandfather had 11 or 12 girls, whose names all changed, and seemed to have all girls who married and their names changed. Exciting everyday with new finds and very challenging.

Lo Marie, Monroe, Mi.

RE: O'Rork Family
My half brother is an O'Roke, from Charles E. O'Roke, the son of Constantine and Sarah Larew O'Roke. I was so excited to find Sarah in the White Hall Cemetery, you will never know! Elizabeth

#5543632 - Cemetery Change
My brother, Gary Baldwin and I are very happy that you are interested in Find A Grave. I have contributed most of the entries for the O'Bryan Cemetery and he has contributed to several cemeteries including the Davis Memorial Cemetery.

We discovered that your father's entry (Robert Lee O'Bryan, Jr., #5543632) has the wrong cemetery listed. He is buried in the Davis Memorial Cemetery not the O'Bryan Cemetery. We viewed his tombstone at the Davis Memorial Cemetery, Pesotum, Champaign Co., Illinois, and he is buried near his following family members:

His grandfather, Hiram Christopher O'Bryan, 1899-1932, #68195912.

His grandmother, Alma Kemper O'Bryan, 1897-1929, #68197396.

His great-grandfather, William Sheridan O'Bryan, 1867-1948, #52397853.

His great-grandmother, Alta Belle Wampler O'Bryan, 1874-1967, #68194096.

I am sure that you will want to make the cemetery correction for your father from the O'Bryan Cemetery to the Davis Memorial Cemetery. It is very easy to do. Just follow the instructions in Find A Grave. If you need more help, please contact me.

Thank you. Barbara Donsbach

RE: Gehaza Ellen Rowe Bryant
Thank you so very much! I've been looking for her information for sometime now. My grandma's information for her was Ellen Rowe Bryant, so we did not know of her first name being Gehaza. Until recently, when I located her and her family on an 1860 Champaign Co, Illinois. They showed her as Gehzey. If I come across anything for you, I'll send it on. Thank you again!
