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.
