Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my family settled in Adams and Brown counties, Illinois, therefore my focus has started in these areas.

I am interested in helping other people find their families by entering memorials and filling photo requests. While I'm searching I take extra pictures to place on FAG.

Please notify me if you would like something added, corrected or deleted on a memorial that I have entered. I will respond to those that follow the Find a Grave guidelines and use the EDIT link.

Thanks to all who have helped with information, photos, additions and corrections.

RE: Mary J Ellinger
I did read your note. Unfortunately, I haven't been to the cemetery, so I'm not in a position to say whether or not the stone is Mary's. It appears that the white headstone would have to be disinterred to see a) if it's legible and b) what it says.

RE: Mary Ellinger
You're correct--I entered the wrong date of death. It should be Sept. 6, 1863. Her birth date was July 25, 1863. I was working through an Ellinger family history transcription and must have picked up the date from someone other Ellinger. Sorry about that and thanks for double-checking me.

RE: Mary Catherine Woods
Hi CJ,
I was going by how her name was spelled on the Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index. However, I have found her under the names of Kate Woods & Mary K Woods on US Census reports. So, I guess Catherine may have been spelled Katherine. I'll leave it up to you as to how you want her memorial to read. I've requested a photo of her headstone. Maybe that might help determine how you spell her middle name.
Thanks for contacting me and having me double check my info.

RE: Emma Combs
I used the Birth Date Calculator from Pro Genealogists to come up with the birth date of 22 Aug 1860

Nancy may be having senior moments. Sorry

RE: Mary Tobie at Prairie City
I removed the photos so could you please add them to Mary Hodgson's site I created. Not trying to steal your thunder, just give a good representation. I certainly appreciate your photos.
