Bio and Links
Bio Photo Owner of Zellers Tombstone Repair Monument Specialists, Ogle Co., IL.

Most of my families migrated to Ogle Co., IL. from Washington Co., MD. in the early 1840's, some came as early as 1836 most were part of the German Baptist Brethren. Surnames included on maternal and paternal sides include: Zeller, Zellers, Keedy, Furry, Maysilles, Wolfe, Tetlow, Stouffer, Kerns, Poffenberger, Cuplin, Bottorf, Barber, Funk, McKinley, Moore, Izer, Blecker, Long, Young, Lantz, Rench, Miller, Firey, Fiery, Haye, Hoffman, Traynor, Hill, Studebaker, Hoffman, etc...
Most of my entries are from trips afar and local burials here in Ogle County, Illinois... Special. Edits are being allowed by Findagrave, I will not be held responsible or get in the middle of family differences of information, please be advised a lot of edits are taking place that contributor has no idea if information is correct, only what is engraved in monuments themselves.
. Thanks to anyone who added a photo to my entries. If you would like information edited in to a memorial I will be glad to do that for you. Exceptions will be made for family members who wish to have the memorials of their loved ones. Thank You. In addition some edits are getting out of hand. I don't mind adding information but come on people its a grave.. Doesn't need every little thing added to the memorial. Please use good sense and judgement when suggesting edits on memorials. Yes its my time.

Beard's Martin--Elizebeth-Charlotte
Would you consider a transfer of Martin--Elizebeth and Charlotte Beard to my acct--they are my direct descendants. My Find A Grave acct is 47388087. I would really appreciate this. I have many Beard relatives already including David and Henry Clay Beard who was my great G Father. I also have a facebook page--Beard descendants of Henry Clay Beard--lots of Beard photos--old ones. Can you tell me if David Beard was buried in this same Cemetery--I see no record, but he did die in the area.

RE: Manning
It is a beautiful monument and I thank you for whatever repairs it needed. It looks brand new and I know it is quite old! There is no rush. The tombstone is the only record of her death date. There is no death record on file with the county or state. Additionally, the inscription at the Thanks again :-))

Aurelia Strong Manning - #11459498
Since Aurelia Strong Manning's tombstone photo was taken in 2005, resolution has become much better. Is there any way someone in the area could take another photo of her tombstone that would be clear enough to read if it was printed? The "years, months, and days" at the bottom are not clear enough to read. I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
