Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would like to tip my hat to those intrepid volunteers that take photographs in cemeteries. Getting a good photo is not easy! The angle of the sun, clouds, grass clippings, over grown weeds, etc. If you have a better picture to upload than I've taken, let me know and if I concur, I'll delete mine. If you want to upload a picture to a memorial I've created, let me know and I'll request one! Photographers deserve as much reward as they can get!

Families that I'm researching include Lapham, Wixson, Hillyard-Hyliard, Jesseph, Rappleye, Van Nuys, Cantrell, Gennrich-Genrich, Wilk-Wilkie-Wilczewski, Hoff, and Filipowicz-Phillips. And my wife's family Sawyer, Mumm, Limb, Curry, Barkuloo, Schmidt, and Green.

Working Peoria County cemeteries. Photographed: Prospect, Chillicothe, Streitmatter, and Saint Joseph Mooney Cemetery.

I am now working the historic Springdale Cemetery. Have 100% photograhed Division A, The Willows, Forrest Lawn, Woodland Heights, Front Lawn, Chapel View, Mt. Sinai, Mt. Hope, Washington Heights, Resurrection, Masonic Garden, Last Supper, Sermon on the Mount, Gethsemane, Good Shepherd, Valley View, Hillcrest Division, Garden of Memories, Glen Division / Glen Ext., Hickory Slope / Ext. and Lawn Division grave markers in Springdale. Working the Fairview Lawn / Orchard Hill / Summit Range Divisions now.

Photographer A D Rogers has photographed and uploaded images for all of Sunset Terrace, Middle Valley, and Rose Hill. He's also photographed all of the Mausoleum.

If you make edit suggestions, I do investigate every suggestion before accepting. I do not accept suggestions, where the only source is an ancestry tree. Documentation is required.

Please do not ask me to link a memorial to burial "unknown", this web site is for the known dispostion of the remains. Let's keep it that way.

A few things I've learned...
Death certificates are good for date and location of death (other info on death certificate is advisory).
Birth certificate is the best source for date of birth, location, and parents.
Info from headstones is also advisory too. Headstones are sometimes put in place decades later by descendants and errors are made.

I will transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines (*with one exception), unless they are part of my own genealogical research.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

*Once a memorial is complete: death record added, family links made, obituary added, etc. please do not ask for a transfer.

Many of the transfers that I've made, just sit there, no embellishments.

RE: Ray A. Bailey 156244495
Ray Bailey was married to my grand-aunt Ena Hargis (my grandfather's sister). My aunt (Ginny Hargis; my uncle Kenny's widow) & I are the ones who have been working on this for years. I also use, & other genealogical websites. I believe Aunt Ginny was the one who found out through other Hargis family members who are now deceased.

I hope this helps. If you have other questions, please feel free to ask.

Death date error for Amanda Winchel
Hi Stephen,

You may know me, son of Mary Lapham. I was following my family tree, and noticed that the entry for Amanda Winchel was erroneously entered as Jul 23 1891. The picture shows the date as Jan 23 1891. FYI.

Caroline Moras # 76225233
Dragica refers to her given name at birth. Her name was changed to Caroline after coming to the US. This is based on her naturalization record. I believe Rose is her daughter.

Name corrected. Looking at the original pic and blowing it up, seems there was a scratch or dirt that went right through the G and made it look like a C.
