Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree since 1998. I wrote a book on the Lashells/LaShelle/LaShell family.


I love genealogy and I welcome any corrections or additions. I am really happy to answer any question or accept any suggestion, so don't be afraid to write. I am also happy to transfer a memorial to a family member or friend to maintain.

I enjoy helping others with their family research and try to post pictures from cemeteries in my area as frequently as possible. Pictures that I post on this site are for sharing, so please feel free to copy or post them as you like.

Thank You
Good Morning Jennifer,

Thanks for your good work in adding the profile of Sheriff John Bardell of Jo Daviess County Illinois. Sheriff Bardell will be honored for his line of duty death at the 2017 Ceremony of the Illinois Police Memorial. It is so important we do not lose these sacrifices to history and your excellent historic research is helping to assure this does not happen.

All the best
-Rob Moon

RE: George Raymer
Well, hello cousin! :-)

Yes, I see that now. I'm not sure what I saw, because I looked and looked at it before I sent anything. But indeed it's correct. Thanks for the heads up!

RE: Wrong Lineage
I already contacted them, I just wanted to be sure you knew about this. There is too much conflicting information to think this entry is correct.

Wrong Lineage
I wanted to let you know about a problem with the ancestry of Alonzo.
Start with # 64430481 Christina Anna Nell Allman
Then # 30206296 Catherine Hostetler Nell
Her listed parents are almost certainly wrong:
Jacob Hostetler (1826 - 1892)
Elizabeth Shetler Hostetler (1827 - 1912)
For one thing, the next oldest sibling is 22 years apart:
Catherine Hostetler Nell (1830 - 1901)
Caroline Hostetler Casper (1852 - 1939)*

According to "Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler" her father is William and Mother is Christina.
The listed dates are more correct too.

This is also confirmed with Nell genealogy and my family history. We have a photo of William.

RE: Mary Avery Browning Picker
Thanks again, Jennifer - she is not a blood relative so no need to transfer. Thanks for the offer, though. Keep up the great work - it helps so many people discover the final resting place of their loved ones and truly honors their memories.
