Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is my passion. It is not the dates or the places that I seek, but the challenges, the history, the stories that my ancestors have inside them that I want to discover. My research began when I moved to Illinois in the 70s. My mother always wanted to know about her Clevenger roots which stemmed from Wayne County, IL.

If you know anything about Wayne County, IL, you will know that it was plagued with a fire in 1886 which destroyed most of the tools that we genealogists need to piece patterns of lives together. I can't tell you how many trips I made down to Fairfield, Illinois, but it was so many that the County Clerk offered to lock me in one night so I could finish the box of charred records that I was sifting through. Being a scaredy-cat, I declined, much to my regret these days.

Find A Grave has allowed me to add 40 years of genealogy to my ancestors. Thank you for this wonderful free platform and to all those volunteers who have tirelessly donated their time in cataloging cemeteries.

I am a resident of Illinois, but also Texas and California. My educational background is Mathematics and my professional experience was as a project manager. I have one daughter who sad to say is not interested in Genealogy, however, she has explicit instructions to not throw any of it away, after I am gone.

My main interests are in these families:
Clevenger Clark Candee Woodruff Beall Weed Dunn Scofield Sinnett Frey Betts Stevens Myers Wright Trester Briddell Stinnett Brinton Tharp Coddington Atherton Cushman Remington and Hall.

The localities are Wayne County, IL; Stamford. Connecticut; Winchester, VA; Hampshire County, VA now WV; Troy, New York; Daviess County, KY; Allegany & Montgomery Counties, Maryland; and Harrison County, VA now WV and Knox County, Indiana.

I am a firm believer in our ancestors' migration patterns. Whenever possible, I try to follow the families traveling together, because they tend to intermarry.

Happy Hunting, Candee email is genealogy2@aol.com

Photo request for Richard and Sarah Bealle
Hi,

I stopped into the office at Rock Creek Cemetery today to see if they had any record of Richard and Sarah Bealle in their office.

Unfortunately, I was told that there was no record of them being buried there. The online database of interments:

http://www.cemeteryregister.com/search.asp?id=DC_Washington

Does not cover folks who were interred in 1778 and 1797- so that's why I checked at the office.

If you would like to follow up with them, their number is (202) 726-2080.

If not, would you kindly consider removing the photo request?

Sorry to contact you again - just trying to clean up the photo requests for RC.

Thanks so much!

Photo request for #105591027 Rock Creek Cemetery
Hi,

I am a photo volunteer for Rock Creek cemetery. I would like to fulfill your request for Richard Beall but am having some trouble.

The online interment records have no Beall surname interred in 1778. I don't even know if the online records go back that far.

It will be very hard for me to locate the grave without a section and lot. Since you are a family member you could call the cemetery and request this information (202) 726-2080.

If you want to get back to me directly with the information I would be happy to hunt for a stone for you.

Have a great day!
