Hi BjJ:

You are very dedicated to Find A Grave, thank you :)

I have updated the memorial for Caroline C. Willms # 57923585 and the memorial for George F. McAllister # 57490757.

I only ask for transfers of family members for which I have history, pictures, and mortuary, etc.

I have five generations of family history on my mother's side and five generations on my father's side, therefore I have enough to keep me busy.

John B.

RE: Thomas Killion 31768789
Interesting. I was reading the History of Sangamon County, Illinois and on Page 740 it had a write up about Thomas Killion, and it seemed to be the correct one, but possible that there was another one in the area.... It states that his parents took him to Carlyle, Clinton County, Illinois at the age of two.

Thank you.

The Secret Garden
Yes, I did not read Claribel Deruy's obituary, just her brothers so I assumed they had the same mother. Thank you for pointing that out to me.

RE: Edw/Lida Bennett photo request
Thank you. I was guessing at the relationship. With the information you have provided, it is not him. I hope I did not ask you to link the two memorials. My guess is that I asked you to photograph them both so I had more information. I do know she is buried there however, and he is the only Edward Bennett listed to far. I will call and get the exact location for Lyde and let you know. Thanks again.

RE: Thank you
I only have today's backlog. We were in Winchester which is kind of far away, but last time I missed someone's great Grandmom and wanted to go back and find her (we did!!) on way home saw the Auburn request and that's "our" cemetery so we pulled in, luckily on the correct road! I know for sure there are a lot more then 2900 graves there, just no time to check. Connie

RE: Iva Cook photo request

Thanks for the info on Iva's site. As it turns out we had to take a friend to St. Johns on Monday so we went to cemetery then. Turns out she is in the empty spot next to Joseph.

Thanks again,

Thank you for getting a picture of Hezikiah's tombstone. These memorials always look better with a picture of the tombstone. I really appreciate you doing this. Wilda

Margaret Willet
Hi there - Got your message for Margaret Willet regarding Samuel Willet. Margaret married a Samuel Willett about 1890. I'll do what I can to figure this out. Sometimes people give me links through the automated system and if they are more closely related to the people (or if they are people I haven't researched myself) I usually approve the edits. Maybe that was the case with Margaret and Samuel. Thanks for the heads up!

Welsh Family
I notice that you are maintaining some of the Welsh's. My great-grandfather Joseph Hoff married Isabel Welsh in 1879 and they are buried in Calvary Spfld. I am trying to find her parents and thought you might have info. I have a name Adam Welsh. Any thoughts? Thanks.
