My husband and I were both born in Ogle County, Illinois. We resided in Ogle and Winnebago Counties for most of our lives, and retired to the Phoenix area in 1999.
Roger is the Administrator of the Ogle County Genealogy Site, The Romberger All-Family History Site and Roger and Sue Cramer's Genealogy Site. He has helped many people connect to their family lines, especially those from the Washington County, Maryland and Dauphin County, Pennsylvania areas, with many descendents that eventually settled in the Ogle County, Illinois area. He has written two books on his family lines: The Matter/Motter Family & and The Shilling/Schelling Family.
I have written books entitled The Hepfer Family of Franklin County, Pennsylvania (Stephen Hoepffer/Daniel Hepfer line) and The Bemis Family of Ogle County (Stephen Bemis line).
Some of our direct family lines include: Motter, Schelling, Hoverland, Cramer, Bemis, Hardesty, Ferguson, Demuth, Hepfer, Hunsdon, Frisk and Larson.
We appreciate the Findagrave site, as it has given us an opportunity to preserve the graves and biographies of our ancestors. Our project is to link our ancestors with their children and grandchildren, so that the information will be available to future generations.
We commend all those who have worked so diligently on the Findagrave site. It is a wonderful genealogical tool.
