Bio and Links
I am a native of southern Illinois and have been a genealogist for about 20 years.

Please contact me if you want me to transfer management of a memorial or have corrections or additions. I may have added some information to memorials based on census records, public documents or information from other researchers. I will be happy to provide source information if asked.

I am currently working with another volunteer to more fully document Mount Hope Cemetery in Belleville, St. Clair County, Illinois.

Dixon memorials
Hi C Heilig, thanks for listing the Dixon memorials. I would not have found them if you had not posted their memorials. They are cousins of mine and I would be glad to accept the maintenance. Thanks Walt #47235581

RE: Shantek
Vlahek the family mostly used this cemetery You took a picture of the grace for JOhn which I had not been able to find. Grandpa Joseph was buried near him but i noticed he is still missing in action. Grandma was Viktoria she is completely away from those two.

Let me know if you find anything out.

Their suggestion:
There seems to be confusion here on the family name. The Paul and Julia Shantek tombstone clearly says "Santek," and member Cathy McElroy has also created memorials (#87060695 for Paul and 87060715 for Julia) using that variation. I believe the memorials should be combined with a note about the name confusion.


I do see where someone else made a memorial under the tombstone spelling. I don't quite know what to do. The correct spelling is as I added it. This was my Mothers sister.

I am currently researching the Blankenship family in Clay Co. and St. Clair Co., Illinois. Are you related to William?

126040078 - Myrtle Blaylock
I feel certain that Myrtle is the wife of Lawrence Raymond Leach and have linked them as husband and wife. If you are not related to Myrtle and would like to transfer her memorial to me I will gladly accept. Raymond is a distant cousin of mine, but I have memorials for several of his siblings and mother as well as his children.

Leach #94006357
Thanks for the information about Myrtle Leach. I think this is no doubt the wife of Lawrence Ray Leach, however, the last name Blaylock does give me another mystery. In the obituary of Ray and Myrtle's daughter Phyllis Cook's obit her parents are listed as "Raymond Myrtle, nee Joyce, Leach. In 1930 Federal census Gerald Corgan is listed as Ray's step-son. This would apparently indicate that Myrtle married three times - Raymond, unknown Corgan and unknown Blaylock. I suppose she married Corgan, then Raymond and then Blaylock?

Interesting - gives me something else to research!
Thanks again for sharing this information - I always appreciate any help.
