Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised and live in beautiful Northwestern Illinois. I love searching through old cemeteries for my family and helping others find theirs. I hope to get photos taken at many of the area cemeteries and posted on Find A Grave, as time permits. I am our family genealogist and love history and antiquing.


Some of the family surnames I am researching: Lyon/Lyons, Millet, Edwards, Mitchell, Goodmiller/Guthmuller, Keck, Johnson, Stone, Grandy, Hazelton, Finkenbinder, Throne, Machamer, Hartman, Dubs, DeLong, Keeler/Kahler, Culbertson, Clay, Ortmeier, Hoefer, Ploeger, Krugjohann, Bokemeier, Knauer, Rath, Haas, Handel, Groezinger, Accens, Miller, Schleuning, Schnider, Manion, Patton, Oldham, Kavanaugh, Noland, Vertrees, Layman, Williams, Nalley, Henderson

On my husbands side: Groezinger, Koepp, Gerner, Slonecker, Mapes, Osterday, Justus, Byrum, Beardsley

Araminta Mary Moothart Robbins Wells
I believe there are two memorials on Find a Grave for this person. Yours #74754653 and the other is # 156405512. The second one has her buried with the last name Wells, which you mention in your bio. I do not know which place is her correct burial place but am wondering since her SSDI has her passing away in Minnesota if that is not the correct one. I do have a picture of her tombstone with the last name Wells which I am going to place on the Minnesota site. She was married to my cousin Ralph Rufus Wells and I really would like to see her connected to both husbands. Can we straighten this out some how? Carol J.

HiLo Twiner
long time no Sea... I was in your neck of the woods today, at Ladies Union Cemetery, there are way more interments there than appear in Find A Grave!!!! I thought you had it covered HA!!!

Best Blessings !!!!!

Hi - Please change the parents for Sarah Williams 18085115.

You have her listed as the daughter of Watkin and Margaret Williams. But she was their granddaughter. Her father is John Williams, who is showing here as her brother.
