2021: My husband and I have been married for 47 years. We have 2 lovely daughters, 1 outstanding son-in-law, and 4 fantastic grandchildren.

My main interests are the Woodburn and Bunker Hill cemeteries in Macoupin County, Illinois. After arriving in Alton, Illinois in the early 1830's, my Partridge (and related kinfolk) ancestors settled in and around the towns of Brighton, Bunker Hill, Woodburn, Shipman and Piasa, Illinois.

Find A Grave HELP can be found at the bottom of any page. Click it! Read it! Follow it!
Also, click-on Forums Link to ask questions or for additional Help/Clarification/Support.

EDIT Suggestions: I try to verify all edits received. If needed, I will request a Link To or a legible copy of your source document. [birth record, death record, marriage record, etc.]
A "Family Tree" listing is NOT proof.

REQUEST TO MANAGE: I will consider 'out-of-guideline' transfer requests. Your request should be made by, Suggest other Corrections, on the Edit page of the individual's memorial.
The request should include, Why, you want the memorial transferred to you for management.
