Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started out researching my mother's family (McLemore & Barker), and now am looking at my father's family (Haugh & Seemann). Along the way, I did a tree on my stepfather (Kearney).

I am now retired after many years in Quality Management in manufacturing. I live in the Chicago suburbs and got really interested in genealogy after I retired.

I started taking photos of grave markers that caught my interest, either by the style or if they are individuals who served in the military (I feel those individuals should always be remembered).

When I take a photo and find there is no memorial page, I start one and post the photo. I always research the person so that I am not just putting the dates and names shown on the headstone. When I am certain that I have found a husband and wife and/or children, I link them on their memorials. I am willing to transfer those memorials per the Find A Grave rules.
I do NOT post the names of living persons on any memorial.

I love cemeteries with beautiful old tombstones and statues or just interesting markers.

The only truly dead are those who have been forgotten. (Jewish Proverb)

Thank you Carolyn for linking Elmer with his second wife Marie Chodl. When her first husband Charles Chodl, Jr. died I lost track of her until you posted her maiden name with her new married name. Charles Chodl, Jr. is a cousin of my husband. Thanks again.

I claimed your photo request for Lillian Minnick and you asked to look for any other Minnick's in the area. I located one other, Bert Minnick and have uploaded a photo to his memorial as well.

RE: Lillian Moore
Thanks Carolyn,
That was nice of you to look into that. That was a lot of trouble for you. Not sure what happened, but it might save someone a lot of trouble. I came across it while looking for my grandfathers sister.
Lillian E. Boneske Moore, Peoria, Il. her husband G. D. Moore died pretty young around age 40 b.1880 m. 1907. nothing on him except marriage record.

I'm relatively new to this. I recently thought I found a found relative. He was listed at the cemetery, marker picture and all. The location was a logical place for him but he was wasn't there and the marker was of someone else.
Who knows?

Lillian Moore
I see her listed in two different cemeteries with the same picture. I was looking for Lillian Boneske Moore. Married to G.D. Moore July-7-1907
Not sure if this is duplicate listing.

Thank you so very much for making the effort and taking the time to take her photograph for me. Because I live in the South, I am not able to do it myself and appreciate your having done this for me.
