Bio and Links
Bio Photo born in Chicago and moved to California many years ago. Most family origins in Illinois both for me and my husband. Our roots are buried deep in Montgomery County. I am an avid genealogist - same for my oldest daughter and genealogy companion. We make yearly trips to Illinois to research family history. We've spent many an hour documenting abandoned cemeteries and will gladly take photos in local LA cemeteries.

Hensley's in Litchfield
I added marker pictures for Frances Lena Immenga Hensley Memorial# 151845671 but the birth years do not match? I also added a picture for her husband John (his dates do match).

Michael Sandoval
Spouse of Antonio Fernandez
Mr. Fernandez was a close friend of my father, Meliton P. Sandoval.

Antonio M. FernŠndez was born in Springer, in northwestern New Mexico, on January 17, 1902, to Josť Estevan and Maria Anita FernŠndez. Educated as a child in a one-room country schoolhouse, FernŠndez went on to attend New Mexico Normal University (now Highlands) in Las Vegas, New Mexico. After college, he married Cleofas Chavez on June 9, 1924. The couple had five children: Anita; Dolores; Antonio, Jr.; Orlando; and Manuel. FernŠndez worked in the office of a local judge and served as a court reporter in the Eighth Judicial District of New Mexico from 1925 to 1930. After earning a law degree at Cumberland University Law School in Lebanon, Tennessee, in 1931, FernŠndez was admitted to the bar in New Mexico and began practicing in Raton, New Mexico. He worked as an assistant district attorney of the Eighth Judicial District of New Mexico in 1933, and a year later he opened a law practice in Santa Fe. Before serving in the U.S. House, FernŠndez held a series of elected and appointed positions. In 1935 he represented Colfax County in the New Mexico house of representatives. As a state legislator, he introduced and shepherded the first Rural Electrification Authority Act to passage.2 After leaving office, FernŠndez was chief tax attorney for the New Mexico state tax commission before serving as assistant attorney general from 1937 to 1941. He then worked for the New Mexico public service commission in 1941 and 1942.

Mary Jane Shaw Rogers
Buried Tine Sawyer Cemetery, Dorchester Il.
1900 census record shows she was born in Germany, and immigrated in 1830. Arrived in New York, New York. She's been somewhat of a genealogical mystery, as to where she originated from, until I found her on the 1900 census for Dorchester Il. and living with her son, Daniel Rogers. I submitted an edit. Thanks!

Please add his wife Zella Jackson. She was the sister of my grandmother Iva Myrl (Jackson) Dawson. There were 7 siblings of the Jackson's in all that I am in the process of researching. Thank you for your time in this matter.

If you are out in Evergreen cemetery in Litchfield again, could you get a good picture of John from his grave stone? The Vietnam memorial would like a good picture of him the post on the national memorial. Thanks for taking the time to post his grave site picture.

Thanks so much for all those Montgomery County Transfers. I'm hoping the details we're able to add will make them even more useful.
