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

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!!!

I was looking for your restaurant but either my GPS got lost or you tore it down? where my GPS told me to turn was the Veterans Memorial Flags!!! so no Ice Cream for me today!!!!

If you ever go to work in Ladies Union and want company, give me a ring a ding!!

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.

Hi Old Country:

The Sarah Williams, that you have as a daughter of Watkin Williams, is actually his granddaughter. She is the daughter of John Williams:

18085115

Can you please make that change? also, would you consider transferring all of your Williams and Siedenburg files over to me? I recommended a change for Cynthia Siedenburg some time ago, that has not been addressed. These are all direct relatives of mine (or close), and I am in contact with direct relatives of them all the time. Perhaps I have more time to do this than you.

Thank you for your time, your work, and your consideration. Best, Gordon

Cynthia Darr Siedenburg
Hi Old Country:

Thank you for doing such a great job on all of these records. We appear to be connected, via the Goodmillers. In fact, I have a number of questions about that family group, perhaps we can collaborate.

Would you please approve my request to link Cynthia Siedenburg, in the Deeds Cemetery, to her parents, Henry and Elizabeth Williams Darr? Right now this is becoming a log-jam to my progress in my family research. Or if you would like, please transfer ownership to me. She is my great-great Aunt; and Henry/Elizabeth Darr are my Great-Great Grandparents. THANKS!!!!

(please send a private message if you would be interested in collaborating)

Elvina Toepfer
Just a note - I think we have a duplicate with a different spelling of the first name. You have memorial # 70805736 for Elvina Toepfer, and there's another record for what I believe to be the same person - Alvina Toepfer, memorial # 11665425. The "Alvina" record predates yours, and I've submitted a spelling correction for the Alvina record. Is it possible to load your photo of the headstone to the other record and remove the duplicate?

Thank you for all the work you've done. I've seen your ID on many records for my family members, and it's greatly appreciated.
