Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

RE: silvia bunker #169127009
I was asking whether her son-in-law, Frederic Elisha Freeman was buried next to her, (Silvia). I haven't figured out where her daughter, Ann is buried. Ann was the one living in Joliet (actually, her husband Frederic was also living there). This is why I was confused as to why he would be buried across the state. If you have access to the hope cemetery book and wouldn't mind looking them up for me, that would be most appreciated!
Thanks again.

Is she near F E Freeman? I suspect this is his mother-in-law. I'm trying to figure out why he was buried in this cemetery when he was alive in Joliet in 1898.

RE: F E Freeman #169127010
If there is a date on the stone, it's likely to be 1898 or 1899. There was a pension application filing dated Dec 28 1899 which was done by his widow, Anna. She was shown as a widow in the 1899 directory for Joliet.
