Update (Sept.2012) on genealogy...
Found: Marriage application for Christian Frederick Carstedt and Anna A. Rush Lyons, widowed.
I see that Grandpa Carstedt has family members from his first marriage linked to him on findagrave. If any family member from first marriage reads this, please contact me at
HAIDKE/HEIDKE (&variations)
***Brown: This is one of my two brick walls.
Charles W. Brown lived in the quad city area, Kansas, Illinois, and possibly Iowa and Wisconsin. The middle initial may not be correct. Charles Brown married {Mary E. Gerth, b. abt 1842 in Illinois.}
Update: Charles Brown is buried in Freeport, Illinois. I have not located the gravesite yet.
***Carstedt: I am only finding two families for the name Carstedt/Karstedt. The "other one" has lots of info and descendents. Mine has my family and my Grandfather's first family from Kansas. I would like to find some of his grandchildren, or their offspring. Since Grandpa was much older when he started his second family, I believe the "cousins" I am looking for would be Christian Carstedt's great grandchildren.
***RUSH: The Rush family from Eureka, Woodford County, Illinois....I have found ancestors. Now I would really like to find some descendants. Great Grandpa Douglas Rush had siblings, but we know nothing of who they may have married, or where they went.

Tip for grave marker photos: Do not walk around a cemetery when it is 100 degrees, get all excited about finding what you are looking for, only to get home and discover there is no memory card in your camera. Check before leaving home!
I have only begun to fulfill photo requests for local cemeteries. There are so many requests coming in that I cannot possibly get to all of them in a timely manner. I will do my best as I travel around on errands and outings. When requests come in, I try to give you the option of posting the photo yourself, as your own. Once I send it to you, it is yours. I do not need those big numbers on my profile, nor do I need the credit.
Virtual Flowers...
CONEFLOWER picture is one that I grew myself. I will be leaving this flower for all related to me. I have left it in the past for some "maybe's" and extended family.

The WHITE LILY that I leave denotes that I am not related in any way.

My YELLOW BUTTERCUP is for the maybe category.

Nicholas Holstine
Nicholas was the brother of my great great grandfather James Ambrose Holstine. He was married to Susan Dunbar in VA/WV. He was in the Confederate Army during the civil war.
He was the son of Hugh and Sarah Holstine of Mercer Co. VA/WV.

His father, Henry, was married to Martha Dillion

Sharon - Will you please transfer Nicholas Holstine #92928739 and Elkansas Holstine #92806305
to me? They are not relatives, I don't think, but I want to establish their relationship to the Dillions and to identify them. It will be simpler for both of us if I don't have to run whatever I find through edit. You seem to be very busy. I will gladly transfer them back when I'm satisfied that I've found all I can. This is probably a strange request but hope you will agree. Thank you, Wilda #47569167

Dillion Cemetery
Sharon - I'm not sure how you got involved with this cemetery, but hope you will find time to OK the changes I have requested. I think its important to get these people identified. I've added
Christopher's parents since they were living with him or near him in Missouri and its very unlikely he would have buried them any place else. Same with his oldest brother, George.

I've ask you to change Riley's wife from Virginia to Jennie. That's the name carved on their tombstone, it's the name on their marriage record, on his obit and on his probate record. I just found their son Reuben's obit and they call her Virginia - but then I don't know who wrote it. I have Feltmann and Polette's booklet on the cemetery and they list her as Virginia. What do you think is best? Wilda Dillion

I have been attempting to track you down for some time. My grandmother Josephine is related to your family. I attempted to obtain a photo of her brother (Valentine's) gravestone (per your request) but it has been removed from Freeport City Cemetery. I saw it on previous visits many years ago and cannot obtain an explanation as to it's disappearance. I wanted to let you know that there was a gravestone but that it is no longer there and that I will pursue it's location. I believe it may have been re-located after Esther passed. Unfortunately. I have thus far been unable to track her burial site.

Thank you so much for entering this photo of my great grandfather's grave marker. Having visited his grave at the land locked Boydston Cemetery, I know how much effort it took.
