Bio Photo Greetings Colleagues!

I am currently compiling a family historical account of my dear ancestors as well as compiling, assembling, and writing a book reflecting the great historical significance of the Williams Prairie United Missionary Baptist Church adjacent to our centennial family homestead. Located in Williamson County, Illinois, Williams Prairie United Missionary Baptist Church is approaching its150th Anniversary of its founding, thus this ancestral research and documentation account has intrigued my interest level as well as enthusiasm to the "Find A Grave" website.
Currently residing 1800 miles across the country, I still envision many rituals, joys, and memories that compelled my desires of research and memory treasure by my previous career requirements and being blessed with a couple years of sabbatical has allowed me to enjoy the hunt before I follow that next journey of life and prior to the beginning of my 4th decade of being here on earth!
Extending my assistance to those that may have some of the same desires or ancestral connections is foremost in my research. Please feel free to contact me directly at with any memory treasure hunts that may be related to mine in nature or if I can share the plethora of information I have ascertained through my efforts!

Extensive information on Jent, Gent, Ghent, Dorris, Clayton, Batts names to name a few as well as some original documents pertaining to these families, Williams Prairie Baptist Church, adjacent Stilley Cemetery, and Williams Prairie, Williamson County, Illinois…

I'm not related to this person so the name came from someone else.

Okay, I have deleted the duplicate memorial at Union Grove 119508210 and transferred all of the relationship links over to the 120068817 memorial at Sanders. The reason I had the memorial at the Union Grove cemetery is because the Illinois death index had that listed as the burial cemetery.

Thanks for correcting me on this and I'm glad we were able to straighten it out:) Karen in Florida.

re: children of Francis and Malinda Avery

Dear David~
Just a quick note to apologize for giving all of their children the wrong father; I connected them with their mother and paternal grandfather by mistake and hope I've gone thru all nine children, correcting their parents. I don't usually mess up, but when I do, I mess up in a big way, I guess. There are still a couple of children to do, will do them later today, hopefully with the correct father. All children borne to Malinda (Kelley) Avery #54429341, should have Francis Marion Avery #54429448, listed as their father. John Avery (1816-1876) is the father of Francis Marion Avery. Sorry for the mess I made and the time it cost you. Thank you for the work you do on Find A Grave, helping people find their lost relatives. Take care and God bless.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, Oregon
