|My interest in history began back in the 90's. I had moved to the St. Louis area at that time and once toured a very old cemetery. That is when I became interested in my own family history. Since then, I moved back to my hometown area of Denver, Colorado. I continued research on my history as time permitted. I am hoping to help others with their records and history as well as learning as much of the past as I can as it is fascinating to me.|

Amy, it was my honor to visit your dad's memorial and leave a message. He looks like such a sweet, fun and kind man. I know you will be missing him terribly all your life, as I do mine, but the pain does lessen with the years. I'm so glad you got too have your daddy with you for as long as you did. I'll bet the rose bush he planted for you flourishes and blooms profusely this year. May God and his angels hold you in their loving arms and you find comfort in all your wonderful memories of him.
He will be watching over you, you can count on that! Look for signs.
God Bless you.

My friend in West Virginia explained the Willis Cemetery better then I will be able to so I am copying from him.
"I only know of the one Willis Cemetery. The areas, Ansted, Victor, Hopewell, Hico, Graydon, Willistown, Edmond, Lansing are within a stone throw of one another so to speak (five miles or so). As far as various obituaries stating the location (like GOVCO, these newspaper writers are all trying to be politically correct in their writings. At Victor, is a post office which serves, Victor, Hico, Hopewell, Willistown, Graydon, etc.
Keep in mind this is a rural communities (no towns other than Ansted), they are just communities of houses with one or two little stores that people started.
The Willis Cemetery is located on Willistown Rd which one can travel from Ansted, going down below the old Gauley Mountain Coal Company Store and travel all the way from Jack's Town to Willistown, Graydon, Lansing even to Edmund on out to Rt. 60 to Lookout. Or from Ansted on Rt. 60 heading east UP and OVER the Ridge to Victor over the ridge, then up and over the next ridge to Hopewell, and take a right off Rt. 60 to Graydon to Willistown Rd, take a left and the Willis Cemetery is up the road a short distance and go to Lansing and Edmund.
Like birth certificates, and death certificates, you will find that they will say Ansted and yet, they might live in Victor, Hopewell, Graydon. The same thing regardless of the little community names, people will say Ansted because that is were the main Post Office is located and that is their address for receiving mail."
I hope that this helps you. If you notice I moved the memorials from the Victor cemetery to the Ansted location even though I believe that they are the same cemetery.
I found you! :) I went ahead and tranferred Jim to you.

Hi - I transferred Mr. Sickmann's memorial to you for updating/linking. To answer your questions, no I am not related to the Sickmann family. I enter memorials from obituaries and transcripts.
To enter your own memorials, if you know where the person is buried, first find the cemetery by using the Cemetery Lookup link on the left-hand side of your screen. If you don't know where the person is buried, I would suggest you add them as "burial unknown" (using the Add Burial Records link on the left-hand side) until you can find out for sure where they are buried.
I am not located near this cemetery, but the County Keeper for St. Charles County is Debbie Walus and she might be able to help you.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. :)
