Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a high school teacher and a history buff. I used to live a few blocks from Greenwood, Rockford's oldest and most historic cemetary. I started carrying a camera with me wherever I went so that I can add records to findagrave~ prominent local people, war veterans, interesting headstones, and of course, my own friends and family.

I remember when I was a kid, my grandmother, Eva Powell Fuhr, would index cemetaries and research geneaology. She kept very meticulous records, on handwritten cards and notebooks. She wrote two family histories on an electric typewriter. She corresponded with people all over the world, and truly worked to get her information (This was back in the days before the internet). Grandma's research was her life's work and she was a proud DAR member. Grandma passed on in 1985, but she left behind a great deal of material. So whatever research I do now, I shall dedicate to her memory.

If I have listed someone from your own family, and you want to list it yourself, or you want to add something to their listing, just email me and we'll work it out. I don't mean to offend anybody. The memorials are made as a tribute to the deceased. All of whom were loved and have a story to tell.

Photo Taken
It wasn't any trouble getting that photo for you I was there getting one of an aunt of mine and saw you had a photo request and since I located the headstone I took it for you. Just wondering I used to work for a Norm Fuhr at Caterpillar in Mossville, IL any relation.

Memorial Transfer

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer Allen Truesdell Find A Grave Memorial# 26572106 and his wife Maria Find A Grave Memorial# 26572137
to me. They are my 3rd great grandparents.

I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your dedication!

RE: Charles Hevrin
Hi Mr. Fuhr. I think I found Joicy, wife of Charles Harrison Hevrin. I believe she is the Joicy Sutter who is buried next to him. I am checking with my mother and aunt. Thanks. Cheeky
