|Bio and Links|
I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.|
As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!
PLEASE DON'T POST THE SAME PICTURE OF A STONE THAT I HAVE ALREADY POSTED. THANK YOU.

Just looked at the updated memorial photograph for Harriet Laughlin. The other stone that must be Brown Laughlin's stone is one of the strangest I have ever seen. I wonder why it was shaped that way and why the two are so very different from each other. Thank you for posting it.
|Karen Ziege Bartelt||Aledo|
OK, I admit I had to look up where Aledo is. I have gone to some out-of-the way cemeteries on the east side of the IL river, too. However, one of my more fun adventures lately was to use just a little bit of my recent trip to Hawaii to shoot headstones of six people I claimed, plus maybe 50 more, mostly of Japanese immigrant sugar plantation workers, at a cemetery carved out of lava in Hilo, HI.

It is interesting how tombstones weather. If it is Brown, he died about 10 years before she did. They had no children to my knowledge. Wonder who arranged for hers that it is in so much better condition. Perhaps she did. I know there were no children from her first marriage to Robert Crist who died in Tennessee during the civil war. His grave site is unknown. So many stories untold.
|Carol Sherbeck Espiritu||Harriet Wood Laughlin|
Thank you for photographing the tombstone for this person. I was surprised to see how impressive it is.
Thank you very much for the tombstone marker of David Hockensmith. Plus the bonus of his wife Stella. Was not sure she was with him as she had remarried after his death. Really appreciate your effort. Thanks again. Bill.
