|Bio and Links|
|I was born, raised, and still live in the Chicago area. However, my roots are in the Illinois counties of Marion and Jefferson from which my parents came. |
As a young child while visiting grandparents in Marion county we would visit the grave sites of relatives. I believe this is how my passion for family history, genealogy, and cemeteries began.
I have been actively researching my roots since the 1970s. The computer, Find A Grave, and Ancestry.Com, along with other sites, have greatly changed the research process. Most of my work has been in Marion and Jefferson Counties, Illinois. The surnames I am particularly interested in are: Easley, Gordon, Hall, Higganbotham, Hill, Keele, Myers, Simmons, Stanford, Spangler, & Stonecipher.
If any errors are found or additions are needed in any of my entries please contact me using the edit button. I will happily make any changes required and appreciate the suggestions as I want the information to be as accurate as possible.
I am always willing to share information, answer questions or help others in their search for information and family. You may contact me using my email address if your info or questions does not relate to a specific memorial.
If I have accidently duplicated another memorial, please let me know and I will delete mine if entered after the other memorial.
I will always transfer memorials within the Find A Grave guidelines and will transfer outside of the guidelines in some cases.

|Steve Peters||Sheila and Charles Gardner|
I was wondering if you were related to the above memorials that you posted?
Just saw that you posted them and wondered if you knew where Charles Jr. died.
Thanks. I am rewriting a book on the Gardner family that I wrote in 1996 and am just trying to fill in the spaces.
