Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been a member for years. I try to do as many volunteer photos as I can get to. I am a Chicago native who is living my dream in sunny Arizona. Since I am new to the area, I can't wait to get out there and explore the cemeteries as I learn the lay of the land.

I photograph & post gravesites as a hobby. I don't know or have info on most of my posts. Sorry!

If you have me add info to a post, I will put a note including your find a grave ID. This allows people to go to the proper source if they have a question about the information you provide. If you are not willing to stand behind your provided information, don't ask me to post it.

***I'd like to say a public THANK YOU to Keri #48150755 & Lorraine Anderson #46820770 for sending me numerous corrections so that I was able to relocate the burials at the now defunct Saint Johannes Cemetery, to their new resting places. Without their assistance, the new resting places would not be listed.

RE: Malissa I Canode Brown
OK, I can understand that, but please add to the note that my source is an obituary sent to me by the folks at the Iroquois County Genealogy Society. They didn't identify the newspaper itself but sent a scan. I will transcribe it if you will be kind enough to include it. They also sent information from the cemetery itself that does not support the date on the stone - it indicates a death date of September 6 and burial date of Sept. 7 1939. Elijah's is also wrong, though I am still looking at him. I have a brief article from the Mattoon (IL) Journal-Gazette indicating his eldest son was called away to his funeral in Portland, IN, in 1930. He is also present in the 1930 census, so he did not die before then. I am still trying to get an obituary for him from that area. The only oddity that might explain the wrong dates on the stone is that Elijah was apparently reinterred from a cemetery in Portland in 1942, so the stone is likely not the original one. I also decided last night to create a page for Malissa's mother - I don't know where her remains are but Malissa has two siblings on Find A Grave and I want to tie them together and to the Pifers.
