You seem to do a lot of work around the Oregon area. I am trying to find the grave site of my great Grandpa Engekle Andrew Roos. He was the first husband of Katie Adams Roos/ Reinders. He died in a farm threshing accident near Byron on Aug 21st 1894. There is an article about the accident in the Oregon History book. He was (I think) born in Germany on Feb 2nd 1865. I looked in the cemetery where Katie is buried. No luck. Ant ideas or guidance would be helpful. Thanks Pam

Moving away from Ogle Co.
My family was born and raised in Rockvale Township Ogle Co Ill. but for some reason all moved west in or around 1890s? They went through Ks and then Co and then Mo. The thing about it was that all of them moved from ogle co. Just wondered if anyone else had the same situation. My family's was Theodore and Mary Austin. Also their son Thomas C and Susan (Kinney)Austin. Theodore came to Rockvale around 1850 and was a stone mason and livestock broker I think. They are all listed in the Ogle Co Centennial book.If anyone knows anything about them please e mail me at Thanks

Do you know if there is a tall, 3 sided cemetery marker in Prairieville cemetery, possibly listing a Civil war veteran?
Thank you.

Adam Schryver 84879235
Good evening,

I am searching for Adam Schryver, son of Joshua and Christania (Pitcher) Schryver, born in Columbia County, NY (likely Ancram town) in November of 1814. I have a baptism date from the Dutch Reformed Church records of Gallatin, Columbia County, NY with a date of November 27, 1814. I am not clear from the picture that the birth year is 1813 on this marker. Do you know for certain the birth year is 1813? In any event, I believe this is the Adam I am looking for. His parents relocated to Petersburg, Summerfield Township, MI between 1830 and 1835. His father passed away January 1, 1853 leaving a will dated January 12, 1949, mentioning his son Adam Schryver who did receive his portion of the disbursement from the estate according to probate papers. I am hoping that you can shed a little more light on what you know about Adam Schryver buried here to prove the connection for me. I also believe that his sister Rachael (Schryver) Olmstead and her husband John Olmstead lived in Illinois for a time before relocating to Missouri and likely gave birth to several of their children. My guess would be that the two siblings moved to the same area around the same time as was common practice then. She would have been there before 1860 but after her marriage which is supposed to have been in New York probably around 1830. Thank you for any information on this Adam Schryver which you have.

RE: Allemong memorial
Thank you so much! I've been fascinated with Edwin Allemong for years and I've done extensive research on his branch of the family. If there are any questions that I might answer for you please email me: Thanks again.

Allemong memorial
Would it possible to get you to delete memorial no. 17941074 for J. Frankie Allemong? He was re-interred on April 4, 1907 from another cemetery, he did not die on that day. He was also not the son of John Edwin Allemong and Nettie Porter Allemong. This is actually a duplication of your memorial no. 17940802 for Frankie Allemong, the son of John W. F. Allemong and Sarah Catherine Allemong. Burial permit 188 from Woodbine lists three children Hattie, Frankie and Irene Allemong being interred on April 4, 1907, all re-interments from other cemeteries. I think Gladys Allemong was also re-interred at the same time. Thank you very much.

Thanks. I have been kind of obsessed. I talked to Dave Zellers about this and he said no skin off. I'll try to be careful. I have a mission to connect Ogle County.

I don't know for sure if she is physically buried here or not. The only thing I can find is that its engraved on the stone in Van Buren, and I also see she has a stone elsewhere. Perhaps its just in memorial?

I appreciate the info & with the plot I'm sure she must be one of ours, but does this mean she has no marker. These monuments don't have her name on them. Thank you.
