I transferred all of the memorials I added by being a volunteer and now only have my family lines. I will continue to take pictures for memorials without a monument photo but being responsible for so many memorials made me forget why I joined find a grave in the first place. I really want to do my family genealogy - and I was no longer researching them and was researching my community instead. I may go back to doing that but for now....my family is what I want to research.|

Here is the message you sent and I just now found it.
John Brown & Elizabeth Miner
You left a flower on John Brown's that they are your 7th great grandparents. On Ancestry they are coming up at my 8th great grandparents. I thought maybe we should get in contact. Thanks Tammy McQueen
Yes they are my 7th g grands as well. My line if from their son Jedediah Brown who married Abigail Holmes (My 6th Great Grand parents), their son Jedediah who married Anna Holmes (my 5th great Grand parents), their son Ephraim Brown who married Deborah Brown (my 4th g grandparents, Their daughter Lydia Brown who married Ira Spear Frary (My 3rd Great Grand parents), their daughter Chole Jane Frary who married Joseph Moon (my 2nd great grand parents),their only son (they had 7 daughters)Joseph Warren Moon who married Mary St CLair (my great grand parents, their only child George Moon who married Marie Connell (my grand Parents), and their daughter Hazel Moon who married Glenn Bunker (My parents), Me Glennda Bunker. I did have a difficult time trying to trace back my 4X great Grandmother Lydia Brown so I think this is correct but if you know something more about that connection please let me know. my email is email@example.com and I also have a very large family tree at ancestry.com.

I walked the St Nicolaus Cemetery @ Garrison and didn't find head or footstone or other marker. Footstone from that far ago might be under sod. (I wasn't looking for him when walking the Garrison cemetery across town, but presume you know his burial site from death certificate or other).
|Ted Smith||Re: Richardine Sackett Reeser|
Can you identify which of the tree is Richardine in the photo you posted to her Find A Grave memorial. Also, who might the other two be?

I looked for Roger's gravestone today and was unable to find it, I did however find his parent's and his brother Richard's. I don't know how you are connected to Roger, but I knew him when he owned the liquor store here in town and knew him to be a kind, friendly person.

Just a note... Theodore Hoffman is resting beside Irene. Her memorial and photo were already listed on Find A Grave, however, they are not linked. Denise

Thanks for responding so quickly. I haven't done and research on Richardine's family. My research has been pretty much on the Reeser line and I do have the history of the Reeser's back a long ways.
William Henry Reeser is a first cousin 2 generations removed to me. His grandfather, William G. Reeser is a half brother to my great grandfather Solomon M. Reeser. All of the Reeser's who lived in Mendota and that part of Illinois are part of the second family. I'm curious if any of your husbands family passed down any of the Reeser history or stories?
Growing up my family had never heard of the second family of half brothers and sisters in Illinois, only that Solomon had come from Pennsylvania. Solomon left Illinois and moved to Iowa and really didnít stay in close touch with the family. I have been lucky to find many descendants of the Reeser's that had photos they sent me copies of.
It was nice to see the photo of Richardine even though she was just a little girl at the time.
I'm always wiling to share what I have with you.
|Joan Edmonson||Richardine Sackett Reeser-# 79622853|
I see that you added a photo to the page for Richardine and I am wondering if you might be related to her or her husband? I am a cousin of her husband.
|kkduck||RE: Herman, Edith, Elgie Richter|
You are welcome, I did post photos on the other Ricter's as you requested. I do want you to know that I did not find this stone in the Catholic cemetery. St. Mary's and Bloomington Cemetery are connected with St. Mary's being clearly identified in the back of the area. I found the Richter stone in the Bloomington part of the cemetery. Just an FYI.

Absolutely, be my guest
|Susanne D||Walsh at Cavalry|
Hello, Today I am posting photos I took at the Walsh plot at Cavalry. I did not find a record for Bessie, but I will post a photo anyway. There are hundreds of Walsh's in this cemetery and it could be under Beth, Eliz. or another name. Since they died on the same day, I'm sure she is there. There is no individual marker just the family name. Sounds tragic.
