Bio and Links
I have been studying the genealogy of our family for over 30 years. My mother-in-law got me seriously interested in genealogy by giving me the book "History of the Hershey Family" by Scott Funk Hershey. The book traced the history of the Hershey family. She is listed in the book and it followed her direct line, as well as others, back to the 1600's. I am in the process of updating that book for my family. In addition to Hershey, our family includes the Kellogg, Corrie, Johnson, Nickerson, Cheney, Rees, Poppen and Albrecht families to name only a few, some famous and a couple infamous. We are connected to a lot of families buried in the Wabash Presbyterian Church Cemetery, where my mother-in-law is interred along with her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Other family members direct and indirect are interred in cemeteries located in Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland and Wabash counties in Illinois as well as in South Dakota, New York, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio and other states and countries.

Some of the information/obituaries I post on my memorials, or pass on to other contributors, may be found in the Lawrence County (IL) Public Library's genealogy department.

I am happy to transfer any memorials that are not a part of my family.

RE: Memorials
This is her profile. She is difficult. Refuses to add much when sending edits. Very old historical sourced info sent refuses.

This is her profile comment

PLEASE DO NOT ADD BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION OR OBITUARIES IN A VIRTUAL FLOWER per Find A Grave Guidelines. If I find any in this area, I'll notify the administrators and ask that they be removed.

On your write up on William Joseph Risley are you related to him. I am doing research on the Risley family. Wiliam had several children and I have been trying to find information on them.

thanks Myrna
