Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 37 year old former teacher turned stay at home mom. 10 years ago I became very interested in my family heritage and history. After finding out it was not possible to research anything with small children I put my work aside for a few years. Now that they are self sufficient, I find I have more time to work on it.
I am currently working on my mother's side to include the surnames: Dorethy, Schaufele or Sheifley, Walters, Bloomfield, Littlejohn, Myers, Horn, Stimeling, Keller, Ruddell, McCaughey,and Kneece (Mostly in the State of Illinois-McDonough, Fulton, Peoria, and Hancock Counties).
My father's side includes: Steel, Cunningham, Dowie, Barrie, Law, King, Wren, Harper, Dunton, Alston, and Munro (Mostly in the State of Illinois-Peoria, Fulton, Henderson, and Knox Counties and in Scotland).
My husband's family includes: Henderson, Bledsaw, Bocock, Petrowsky, Trublood, and Gunter.
As I photograph my family's headstones I will photograph other headstones in the cemeteries that we visit, as time allows. If I have taken or created a memorial for your family member and you would like it transferred please let me know. I know how much I cherish seeing my family's headstones and hope that I can help others that live to far away see theirs.

RE: John Walters, Temple Cemetery, IL
Thanks! I would love photos! My cousin married the great granddaughter of John Walters; her father was Nelson G and grandfather was Hiram Bailey.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker photo on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Thank you for the Photo
I was looking through some online records and would like to thank you Kenyon for the picture you took of my mother's grave. I'm the son of Marsha Biesemeyer. The gravestone doesn't look hardly a day old from how its fairing today. If I can find any older pictures of my mother I hope to upload one soon. I appreciate this though... it's as if I was standing there in the cemetery right now. Thank you again. You're doing work people really do appreciate. Now that I'm older I've come to appreciate the photos I have of a amazing woman whom passed before I could have had any memories to remember her by otherwise.

Hi Kenyon,
I think I just linked Louisa Jane Littlejohn to her parents. (based on the other persons buried in the same cemetery)
Please take a look and let me know what you think!
Someone else linked a different Louisa Jane to Eli Shields as his wife. But I can't figure how she is the correct Louisa Jane.
I hope all is well with you and yours!!

No I'm not related either. I just came across her obituary
And thought it would be great to have it updated!
Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!

Photo on John Chuchill
Would you please add the photo you took of #29504305 for John Wesley Churchill to his wife, Alice I. Churchill, #29504321, as well? I want you to get credit for your lovely photo on her memorial too.

I'm trying to get Alice transferred to me as I have more info for her memorial as well as correcting it.

Thank you for all your work on Find-a-Grave!
Happy Holidays!
