Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always been interested in family history and genealogy, and doing a family history project where I was able to trace my grandmother's family back to 1600's Germany really fueled it.

Many of my memorials are for non-relative's graves that I photograph while walking through cemeteries. Please feel free to use any photos I take and let me know if you would like any memorials transferred to you.

The following text comes from "The Braidwood Story" which was published in 1957 and "is dedicated to the Pioneers of Braidwood, Illinois, to those who later promoted the city's welfare and to the interested generations that follow."


Joseph Honzik and wife came from Bohemia to America and Braidwood in 1877. He was employed in the mines until his retirement. They were the parents of a
large family, including the following boys: Jacob, Joseph, Anthony and Frank.

The widow survives and still lives here (1956), as do Joseph and Anthony of Chicago, who have summer homes here.

Joseph L., the youngest son, is an artist, who prepared the several pen and ink drawings that appear in the book."

Although this information has a few errors (the boys were named Joseph, Anthony, William, Frank, and George,) the book provide a treasured account of daily life and history in my grandfather Frank Honzik's hometown of Braidwood, Illinois.

RE: Alice Clark
Hello, i didn't even notice the mixture with Alice Clarkeand baby Alice. They were buried together in Mount Carmel Cemetery, Hillside, Cook County, Illinois, USA. I have changed Mrs Clark's burial info.

Thank you for making me aware of my mistake.

Thank you so much for taking the time to locate their tombstone, photograph it, and upload the photo to both of their memorials. I live in Maryland, and it's not likely that I will have the opportunity to see it in person. I truly appreciate your kindness and generosity.

RE: ashlock
Here is what received from you several months ago:

Easter Ashlock
THANK YOU! The Ashlocks connect to my tree through the Mother "Snow". Thank you for the photo! I THINK there may be more of Easter's siblings in that cemetery but need to prove/then request photos.

Carolyn Hoober Arntson
There was another child after Easter Ashlock and her name is Carolyn. She is a friend of mine. I gave her your email address and she will be contacting you. You are related through the Snow's and hopefully she can assist in your search for family members.
