RE: Ryan Family
Was Amelia married to Edward Sr or Jr.? I think (not sure) that Edward Jr was married to someone named Nina (Miller) Ryan at one time. Perhaps they divorced and he married Amelia. Nina is buried with her parents in IL. I wondered why they were buried separately, but perhaps it's because they were divorced??

RE: Ryan Family
That would be great to have the additional photos! Thanks so much! We're in the same situation here in MI. Won't stop snowing! No, I'm sorry, Amelia's name does not ring a bell. I will keep it in mind though. Never know, if she might turn up as one of ours.

RE: Moritz Photos
You saw him on his Mom's birthday then, Sept 10th. I don't get to see Uncle Dick very much. When I do go to Dixon, which is maybe once or twice a year now, I just go visit my Step-Mom Barb Herbon. But I always stop by to see the Vet Park. My Dad, & Uncles and cousin all have a stone over there. One day, I want to get one for my husband and myself, but the cost is a bit high for me right now. We were in the Air Force, me for 4 years and my husband for 6. We were stationed in West Germany when the wall came down, so it was quite an exciting time. It's nice to meet someone who knows my uncle.

Hi Patrick, thank you for all of your trouble regarding locating the grave of Sallie Barnes. I will remove the request since there is no stone, but we know she is buried there....thank you, Pat
