I enjoy taking and posting photos.
Cemetery walking involves planning, time, gas, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, assorted other bugs, dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, mud, dirt, snow, rain, dust, wind, sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, and BUCKETS of sweat.
I had to throw my lunch to a couple wild peacocks headed my way. Seems they have a fondness for egg salad.
I appreciate those folks who list their source when posting my photos to Ancestry.com :)

|Karen Hackard||2 Baby Feuchters|
Thank you so much for transferring these infant siblings of my great grandfather to me. If you look closely at Emma's stone, you can see two small stones which I am assuming are for these babies. The carvings are hard to read. I will check my listings from Springdale and see if there are more complete dates for the infants. Thank you again.
Thanks for adding the siblings. I had requested the repair of the Feuchter tombstone, but it took them forever to do it. When finally done, another Find A Grave member added the info from the other side for Anna, the second wife. The front side still just says FEUCHTER.
I was aware of the 2 infants that died....just never thought to put them up. I also have a death notice for them. I do have Emma's death certificate with cause of death as Peripheral Peritonitis. Yes, that explains her death from the birth of the second child infant.
Thanks for all your work, and transfers. I haven't been to Peoria for 2 years...planning to get back there in September.

Debra, Thanks so much for looking for Joels stone. The photos of the area are great. I very much appreciate you going out there. I didn't know he had an unmarked grave.
Thanks again for your help, and for all you do for find a grave.
