Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will happily transfer any memorials I manage to someone who is related to them if I am not.

Also will happily transfer any memorials of anyone I am related to if the requester is more closely related.

Also any and all pictures I have uploaded to this site, I freely share with anyone to use for any non-commercial use they see fit (including uploading to etc.)

I live in Northern Illinois (Rockford area) in Winnebago County. I enjoy riding my motorcycles out to different sites and gathering information on family. When possible I will gather as much for others as possible in order to contribute back to this community that I have got so much information from.

Recently my Fiancee, Barbara Carstens, has been helping me take photos. She is a trooper to be so helpful, especially on the hot summer days, and I want to make sure she gets credit for all her help. Also, as important, I wanted to make sure if you caught a glimpse of any pink painted toes in any photos, you knew they weren't mine. :)

We have to the best of our ability taken photos of every stone in the following cemeteries (and more now, out of space in bio to add them):

Winnebago County, Illinois:

Bethel Cemetery
Durand Cemetery
Fenlon Cemetery
Guilford Turner Cemetery
Harlem Cemetery
Harrison Cemetery

If you need photos for Genealogy ( etc. and the person with the memorial copyrights their photos and they are from any of the Cemeteries above let me know and I will be happy to find my photo of the stone for you to have.

My intention is to be as respectful to all the people represented by these memorials as possible, and to the other users of this site. I take absolutely no offense at recommendations, corrections, transfer requests, etc. And mean no offense when submitting corrections. The more accurate the memorials, the better for those looking for their loved ones, both to pay their respects and/or for genealogists interested in their family or local history.

Thank You!
Just a quick thank you for capturing all the Leffingwell family gravestones in Shirland Cemetery and other nearby cemeteries. It has been incredibly helpful to me!

Hattie Beyer's parents
Hattie Z Beyer, memorial #114641883 in the Shirland Cemetery. Her parents were Jackson S. Weary and Tiszetta T Weary. They are incorrectly labeled as Beyers. I have requested an edit to the parents' names on their memorials. I didn't request a link at this time since the parents' surnames are currently incorrect. I do not have Tiszetta's maiden name at this time. This is information from censuses and a marriage announcement passed down to me from my grandfather who was the grandnephew of Jackson S. Weary. Thank you in advance for your consideration of these changes.

Hi Dale,

You posted the m=pictures of my parents gravestones here n the Find A grave Website. I have been genealogical research on the Boutons going back to their coming to the shores of North America back in 1635. I have seen others put in other family information regarding parents and siblings. Not sure how they do that. I will have to come down and meet with you sometime if you are interested. I am eventually going to want to share all of my research with one of the librairies down there either in Rockford, Pecatonica or Winnebago. Hope to hear from you.

Thanks again,

Dick Bouton

Amos Fenner and Margaret

I went to the Pluckemin Presbyterian Church Cemetery this afternoon. I came across a gravestone for Amos Fenner and Margaret Wortman Fenner. Their last name is not Hunter as it is stated in the Find A Grave request. Although there are many Hunter family members in the cemetery, Amos Fenner does not seem to be among them. It's rather confusing. I can upload the photo I took, but I'm not sure it's what you're looking for.
