Bio and Links
I am a retiree from Caterpillar Tractor Co. in E Peoria, IL. I was born and raised around Saidora IL.,which is about 8 miles south of Bath. My wife and I both graduated from Balyki High School in Bath. I do a lot of work on Family genealogy and love to take pictures of Cemetery stones. I have traveled to quite a few states to get pictures of family stones and add them to my genealogy program. Last year (2007) I completed the documenting of Meadow Lawn Cemetery in Manito, IL., I took over 1850 pictures of the stones and copied the stone information for each one, this year (2009) I completed the documenting of the St Frederick cemetery in Manito, Il. If you are interested in Illinois Cemeteries and their history another good site besides "Find A Grave" is the "Illinois Trails" web site and look for the county of interest.

I would also like to add, I have spent many hours in all kinds of weather walking the cemeteries and taking pictures of headstones and collecting their information. If you take any of my photos and place them on other sites, at least give credit back to me. This is not being selfish, but giving credit to someone for their work is only right.

Fanny Shaw Headstone Photo
Thank you for this picture. It has a sad story behind it... Fanny was my brother-in-law Ron's grandmother. He's been ill for the last several years. I was doing his genealogy and linking his various family member's memorial pages. This grandmother re-married and the end of her life eluded us for the whole time. He died in early December. This month's snowy weather where I live in NY allowed me time to search for her some more & I found her. Maybe the "luck of the Irish"?

RE: Laverne Bennett #7785470
I'm sorry that I did not respond sooner to your question about the location of the grave. Life got in the way. In case you haven't found it yet, the grave is in block 15 lot number 230. As you are coming down the center road of cemetery headed east, turn left on the road that separates block 11 and block 15 and stop. The grave should be on the right. lot 230 is the second lot from the corner.

Opal Ethell's gravestone
Hi Ernest,

Thanks very much for the photo. It's all part of my research to track the Tallon family in the USA. My mother was a Tallon and thats the reason for my interest.

Once again,

Many thanks,
Trevor Hughes

Fern Evelyn Nall Donigian
I'm writing to let you know of two deaths in the Donigian-Nall family. 1st is Charles Michael Donigian Sr. (Mike), son of Harry Daniel Sr & Fern Evelyn Nall Donigian. He died Oct. 23 of 2015.
2nd is the death of Fern Evelyn Nall Donigian, wife of Harry Sr. She died Nov. 27, 2015. Although she has a burial plot there at Bethel, she is going to be cremated as Mike was. I believe Mike had a plot down there & even a headstone @ Bethel. Harry Sr.'s ashes whereabouts are unknown.
I can send you Mike's obit if you'd like.
