Bio and Links
Bio Photo Someone remembers, someone cares.
Your name is whispered in someone's prayers.
Do you want a memorial transferred to your care? I transfer freely, (and out of guidelines,) as long as I have no connection to the memorial.

If I take a volunteer photo for you, it is yours to do with as you wish. Volunteers are doing you a favor! Please remember to acknowledge every volunteer who helps you out.

Good genealogists always document their sources. If you use a grave photo I have taken, please credit me as the source. Thank you.


Please visit my parents,

Our beloved dog and cat,
Reba and Tigger.

Charles E. Shipley A 16 year old boy who is buried in the loneliest spot in the cemetery.

I remember looking at the probate records of this family back in 2008 and I think you have found the correct Anna. If it did not have the middle initial 'T', there may had been some (very little) doubt, but the same birth date? I would say this is a definite match.

Hi-Thanks much for the obituary for Bernard Lyons. I have put it on his memorial page. How sad that he survived the war only to be killed by a train...Mary

William & Margaret Lightholder
Just wanted to say thank you for taking and posting your photo of the above gravestone in St. Mary's Cem, Pontiac, IL. I did not have Margaret's full name or birth and death years, even though I saw the stone several times. I cannot thank you enough. They are my paternal immigrants from Ireland, c. 1846 to Saratoga Co., NY from County Meath, Ireland, probably the Ballivor area of Meath, my great-great-grandparents.

(cousin of the late Lyle Dolton who for years had a flooring business in Pontiac and wife Helen (Eisele) Dolton who was a beautician for years - they lived at 934 N. Hazel Street. Lyle's mother was a Lightholder who married Burt Dolton.

Thanks Pam!
Thank you for adding Mom to the site, Pam. I didn't realize it was you when I sent the earlier message. Then I saw the beautiful tributes to your folks. I appreciate you transferring her. Deb

Charles Withrow
Hi Pam, thanks for the information on Charles Withrow. I did not have any of it. I just submitted a bunch of info on him on findagrave one day because I found his family so easy to find things on. I am only related to his daughter, Grace, by marriage.
