Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching the family histories for the following names: PORTEOUS, PORTAS (and other variant spellings - Illinois, Kansas, Canada, England - my direct line); VAMPLEW, VAN PLEW (and other variant spellings - Illinois, Kansas, Canada, England); PATCHETT (mainly Lincolnshire, England and Illinois); FOWLER (Rhode Island, Mass., New York State, Michigan, Illinois 1600-present); I am dabbling in BUSCHICK, VOIGT, ARNOLD, SNYDER, SMITH [SCHMIDT] (USA, Canada, Germany, England). I live in the Chicago area. I have been researching PORTAS families for over 25 years. I have many headstone images, but not as many as I would like.

I am gathering information on, and casually collecting headstone images of my husband's family: GLASS, PERTL(E), RAYNE, WOODWORTH, and WHAPLES

RE: Thanks for the Whaples obit
As is your wont, to do a little editing. :) Hope to see you this month at your meetup--the last one was very good!

RE: Transfer Carrie Glass
Hi Karen,

My apologies! It appears the "request a transfer" option has been removed. Now one must go to "suggest a correction" and type their request. I s'pose that's one of the changes Ancestry made when they added the Edits tab etc. Ugh.

Carrie has now been transferred to your care.

RE: Transfer Carrie Glass
Hi Karen,

I'd be happy to transfer this memorial. Please request the transfer using the tabs on Find A Grave.

Karen, I am related to Anton Pertle through his wife Lucinda Hollandsworth. Lucinda's father Isaac was my 4th Great Grand Uncle so that makes me and Lucinda 1st cousins 5X removed. Best I can remember, I came across Lucinda's obituary and it said she would be laid to rest beside her husband in Bohemian National Cemetery. I will have to double check my papers at home to confirm this. The photo came from Ancestry.
GOD Bless

RE: Thanks for the quick transfer of Nettie Ehninger!
No, I don't live in the area, only took some photos while traveling through the area. You might check with the Libertyville Public Library.
