|Bio and Links|
|I should state that I will continue the work that Norm and I started this summer when the weather warms. I just won't be as fast.|
We are in the process of documenting all graves in DeWitt County. The summer of 2010 has been dedicated to the cemeteries around Waynesville. We try not to add a picture to a memorial if the current one is readable. Sometimes we will add a close up shot of the wording.
We are very happy to transfer any memorials. We are working with another Find a Grave member to do research on the memorials we have created.
The summer of 2010 we were able to photgraph 12 cemeteries in DeWitt County. They were: Crum, Evergreen, Fairview, Halsey/Hougham, Hays/Coppenbarger, Rose, McClimans, Mills/Cackley, Randolph, Rock Creek, Tunbridge and Union.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE INFORMATION OR REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS IN MY PUBLIC MESSAGES. THEY WILL BE DELETED UNANSWERED. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB FOR THESE REQUESTS.

|Michele Birkner||RE: Pvt Anton F. Birkner|
He was my great uncle and from Woodford County, IL. I don't think he would have been connected with DeWitt. My sister and brother-in-law were in France at his grave 2 days after someone posted a pic. I just posted theirs as well...Michele

May I please use the headstone photos you uploaded for Helen M Finfrock & James Goodrich (and any others you have uploaded)?
|Connie Nix Bell||RE: Thacker Cemetery|
I am also related to the Thacker's. My grandmother was a Thacker. Her name was Jennie C Thacker. Her father was William Riley Thacker.
Seems like we might be distant cousins.
|Connie Nix Bell||RE: Nancy Runnels,Elizabeth Runnels Ledbetter|
I wish I could take the credit for the pictures, but I can't. A cousin iof mine lives close to Thacker Cemetery and took them several years ago. He sent them to me for my records. Are you related to the Thacker or Runnels family?
|Genealogy Lover||Nancy Jane Shipley|
Thank you so much for the transfer. I will merge the information then delete mine, keeping the one you transferred!!

Your memorial 58197669
I just discovered that I have created a duplicate memorial on Nancy Jane. She married my husband great grand aunt Mary Fannie Schatz Marvel's husband, George Washington Marvel (after Fannie's death, of course). My research shows that her first husband, Mr. Shipley, died before she married George Marvel. She and George were, apparently, half-cousins, with their fathers sharing a father but separate mothers.
I have a copy of the obituary on the memorial I created. Would you be willing to put that obituary on your memorial? Let me know so we can see about getting these memorials whittled down to just one.
Her legal name was, seemingly, Marvel (her obituary attests to that), but as sometimes happened, her children likely put the last name of Shipley (which would have been their name) on her headstone. I've seen it happen often.
Please let me know what you think would be the best way to combine these. Yours has a photo, mine does not, as well more links. Seems easier to move the obituary to your link.
