Bio and Links
Got bitten with the ancestry bug about a year ago. Since then I have found so much information, and through this web site I have located several family members and their resting places. It has been an overwhelming and very worthwhile journey so far, long may it continue! Being able to see my loved ones at peace in places such as Illinois, Ohio, and Italy, very likely without ever having the possibility to travel to those places, has been incredible. If I can provide that same sense of connection for another interested and searching soul, I will strive to do so.

LaSalle County connections
I am so glad that you found Addie Baker Land in Oakwood. Did Ryan give you the location in the cemetery by any chance? My fall/winter mission has been to photograph Oakwood and get it posted to the website but since the cemetery is so large, I have only gotten 2 sections of it done and have not run across the marker for Addie yet. BTW, have you been able to located Stanley McCready, Sr. yet since he was not in the Grand Ridge cemetery with his wife and son? If you find him in LaSalle County, I can snap of photo of his resting place for you if you let me know where he is located. The snow finally all melted and the cemetery roads are drivable now.

RE: McCready in Grand Ridge Cem
It was my pleasure to get the photos for you. Let me know if you find Stanley, Sr. and Addie here in the area and I will make a trip to the cemetery and snap a picture of each stone (after the snow melts) and post it to the memorial so that you can see it. Happy hunting! Vicki

McCready in Grand Ridge Cem
Hi Jo:
I finally made it to the cemetery and snapped photos of the markers for Bertha and Stanley, Jr. Is Stanley Sr. in GRC also? I didn't find his marker.

RE: Addie/Ada Baker Land
Hi: I have already added all of the cemeteries in the GR area to findagrave. If I were you, I would check with Jim at the Guild to see if they might have her in one of the Ottawa cemeteries (not many of these cemeteries are on findagrave). If he finds her, Let me know the location in that cemetery and I will photograph it for you. If the stone is flat, my bet is on Oakwood Cemetery which is just up the road from my house. But I will need the location in the cemetery because it is huge! good luck and let me know the details. vicki
