Are you related to the Winkleblacks through the Galbreath family? I found that Pearle J. Winkleblack, died in 1929 in Morgan Township, Coles county on Illinois Statewide death index. I can't find a death certificate on ancestry or Family search or the newspapers on line. Can you think of anywhere else we can look?

RE: pictures
No problem. If there are any more in Arlington Cemetery, please don't hesitate to ask.

Julia Birch England Blevins
Hi Betty,
You suggested: Could you add the following: Julia's first husband was Kansas R England. They married 26 Feb 1880 in Edgar Co., IL. The couple had 2 known children, Clinton (1883-????) and Harlon (1889-????). After her first husband's death she married James Gravill Blevins in 1908 in Coles Co, IL.

Thanks for your suggestion. I added a transcription of Julia's obit to her bio, and linked the memorial of her first husband to her. I also linked son Clinton's memorial and requested that the creator of Harlon's memorial link him to Julia. I think that takes care of everything you requested except the marriage dates and places. Could you possibly provide me with your source for that information. I have looked at the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, 1763-1900 online at but can't find Julia'a marriage to Kansas anywhere in the state under Grooms whose surnames start with ENG or under brides whose surnames begin with BIR.

Are you by any chance related to Julia? I'm a 2nd cousin 3 x removed.

Thanks for posting Julia's info.

Your Cousin?,

Although Josephine Rose Duncan was my Dad's sister, I could find no info on a divorce for her.

Alfred J. Minns - 1893-1964 and Roy M. Minns - 1895-1948 are also buried by Alfred L. and Mary Ann Minns. If you plan to set up memorials for them, let me know and I'll post the pictures.

I found her! Julia A. Henry
memorial #103999971

I found a newspaper article stating her interment would be in Greenwood Cemetery. It makes sense as her son (William Jocard Strunk) is in the same cemetery.

She is my 3rd-great-grandmother. It really bugged me that we didn't know where she was and I finally had that lightbulb moment to keep looking through the newspaper that had the notice of her death.

The Daily Review - April 15, 1907 - page 10
"The funeral of Mrs. Julia Strunk will be held at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning from the family residence 1320 East Locust Street. The internment will be in Greenwood."
