Jacob Kissell.

I am researching Jacob Kissell (1808-1888), and interested in exchanging information. If you are also interested in exchanging information, please contact me directly at

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,

Craig Hays

RE: Bruno DeRoo
WOW that's illegal under Illinois law ! And you're sure that they are not in St. Antony's ? Well I guess we have to go by the death certificate it's a legal document ! OK I guess I'll go after K Roberts and see if she will remove the entries in this Shabbona Grove Cemetery !

RE: Bruno DeRoo
Well your a lot closer than I am. I'm 88 miles fro St. Anthony's Cem. Can you tell me if St. Anthony's Cem. on County 5 south of I 80 in what Google maps calls Caldwell IL is or once was what Shabbona Grove Cem. was or is it in a different location ? Jim

RE: Bruno DeRoo
Say Gene I looked at the death certificate you posted and I can see why we might have a problem here ; it does indeed say Shabbona Grove Cemetery but I did a Google search on Shabbona Grove Cem. and down about three lines is an entry for DeRoo's buried in St. Anthony Cemetery in Atkinson so I looked up that cemetery and there's a whole bunch of DeRoo's in that cemetery. I'd almost bet that Bruno and his wife are there in St. Anthony's in Atkinson IL. Are you close to there or not ? It might be 100 miles from me I'd have to check ! Jim
