My interest in this site started as an extension of compiling and documenting information on my family history. I remembered that my father had taken me to see my great great grandfather, John Leroy Perkins' grave marker in Center Cemetery, Shelby County, Cowden, IL. I returned to visited that site after my father passed on.
That visit re-ignited my interest in this site.
I feel that documentation of the location of family members' graves and linking those individuals to their relatives on this site is a true tribute and perpetuation of memories.
