Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a large database of names at North Providence Ridge Cemetery, Will County, Illinois, particularly members of the KURKAMP, POHLMAN, MYERS and other allied families of Jackson Township. I also have connections to Brown Church Cemetery, near Elwood, Illinois and a large number of NOEL and BROWN family members interred there. I may be able to assist those looking for ancestors buried at either of these locations. Maternal line includes such western Pennsylvania surnames as CUSICK, ANDREW, HOOVER, HUTZLEY, WITHERUP and PHIPPS. I can be reached at my posted email address.

RE: Myers Family
Sorry it has taken so long to get back. I am not sure why a lot of what we find on my line is seen as MEYERS. However, from Martin H. Myers (my gg-grandfather) it has been spelled MYERS. For years, I had difficulties tracing my MYERS side because of the discrepancies. I have also been researching since the 1980s. Computers sure have improved the process of finding ancestors and also makes it much easier to connect to our "living" relatives as well. God Bless and have a great day!

Alexander & Alvernia Witherup

Mr. Myers, I have transfered Alexander & Alvernia Witherup's memorials to your care. Sorry about the mispelled name but the Greenhill cemetery inscriptions is where I got my info. & they have it spelled as I posted it.

Myers Family
My Myers lineage is:

John and Lydia (Smith) Myers
their son: Martin H Myers m. Emma R Reynolds
their son: Wayne M Myers m. Mary P. Barnes
their son (my grandfather): Edwin L. Myers
m. Wilma M. Ekstrand
Ed & Wilma's youngest son is my dad. Grandpa Martin died in August 1900 in Wallace, NE of an apparent suicide (however, many believe he was actually murdered).

Are you also a direct descendant of John & Lydia?

Just another curious researcher looking for more roots.... :)

God Bless,
Iowa Girl
