Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Allenton, MI and travel often to Central Illinois. I am a member of the Versailles Area Genalogical and Historical Society. I have donated several hundred hours creating a database of obituaries that have been clipped from newspapers. These date back to the 1800's. The database is used by visitors to the society to locate obituaries.

I have many relatives that are buried in Brown County, Illinois.

When at home I take photo requests in St Clair and Lapeer counties.

During the winter months I work on cemetary research.

Clarence Russell Lutz
Can you give me a citable source for the death date of 1957 for Clarence Russell Lutz buried in West Side Cemetery, Versailles. His stone lacks a death date. (if you also have an obituaryk, it would be appreciated.)
Thank you.

Memorial# 122411107
Can you please add the following biographical information to the bio of William W Glaze?
Memorial# 122411107.

William W Glaze was born February 18, 1825, in Scioto county, Ohio. His father, Jacob Glaze, was born in the same county, but his father was a native of Virginia, although he died in Scioto. Mr. Glaze, Sr., was a farmer all his life, and died in the county where his entire life was spent, in 1844. His wife was a member of the Reardin family, a native of the same county as her husband, and she lived until 1891. She left three children living.

William Glaze moved to Brown county in 1856, by team, with his family. Here he has remained ever since on the land he bought when he came to the county. He built a house when he brought his family, as the old one-story house that was on the place when he bought it burned down. Times were hard after his arrival in Illinois. The banks of the State were in bad repute and money was scarce. Mr. Glaze had a great deal of difficulty in paying his taxes the first year. He served as Supervisor two terms.

He married Miss Elizabeth M. Coleman, a native of Scioto county. They have six children: May J., Maggie F., Carrie F., Julia H., Thomas H. and A. J. Mr. Glaze has been a member of the I.O.O.F. for twenty-six years and has filled all the important offices in the order. He once represented the order at the Grand Lodge. Two of his children live at home.

Hi Susan,
Check the photos here

All kinds of photos ended up on those, I'm guessing a glitch with the photo transcription thing. Not the first time I've seen it happen. Could you remove all the photos that are not those people?
