Bio and Links
Bio Photo I stumbled upon Find A Grave while doing research for the farm property in which I grew up on. It was homesteaded by Richard Wray in 1836. He married Jane Archdale and the couple had six children.
I have come to love doing genealogy work. It is like treasure hunting but even better.Some of my memorials are near and dear to my heart. But I will gladly transfer memorials. Just ask.

If you are interested in memorials listed in Richmond Cemetery of Richmond, Illinois, I may have more information then is what listed so contact me.

Beware of taking horizontal photos of a grave with an iphone for Find A Grave. It will appear upright on the phone but on any laptop, it is on its side. Frustrating and time-consuming to fix so always take vertical gravestone photos is my advice.

RE: Genesee county Cemeteries
Thank You FarmGirl

Sewell B. Marsh is married to my second great grand Aunt so most of the Marsh line that are in that cemetery are my very close relatives. How are you related?

yep I saw your suggestion, sorry but I can't remember where I got her death date-I just got back to work after Winter break & all this cold weather has my Texas brain a little frozen. Susan Draper is my 4th? great grandmother. I am descended from Telitha Draper Grounds. Let me look at a few things on Ancestry & I will get back to you about that death date. I am guessing that your hubby & I must be distant cuzs.

RE: Telluride - Lone Tree Cemetery
Shall do - actually think it is the app not the I-Phone that screws it up. Hopefully the app will get fixed. Thanks for working on those.

RE: Kenneth Lawrence
I saw on you profile that you have some info on the Richmond Cemetery. It is one that is local to me and I've been working on getting info for it. I know a lot of the records were lost in a fire. The cemetery is currently run by the village, but the caretaker is in a nursing home and I'm working on getting his records. What info do you have?

I sent this to your email as well with my phone number if you prefer to call.

RE: Kenneth Lawrence

I fixed the photo, I used the phone app and didn't notice that it rotated the picture. I'm happy to help. If you ever need a hand finding info locally, feel free to let me know.
