Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lifelong resident of northeastern Illinois, I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and searching out headstones, photographing and posting them and trying to weave the links together of other family members in that cemetery or other ones nearby, so that other researchers can utilize my findings. My areas of particular interest are Lake County (where my family started off in this country), DuPage, Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties, and also Morgan and Scott counties in southern Illinois. I'll also sometimes go out of my "comfort zone" if it's something that looks intriguing.
I try to arrange my photo expeditions according to my schedule and by areas, and of course by weather conditions. I only claim photo requests that I can absolutely fulfill, and try to fulfill them as promptly as possible.
As always, if you'd like to copy a photo, ask permission first in order to let me know how and where it's going to be used, and credit my work. Other than that, I'm happy to help you out in whatever way possible, just contact me.

Sarah Potter Wheeler Minard
Hi, the picture of her headstone you left...have been trying to read the inscription at the bottom but can't seem to zoom enough to read it. Would you could you if possible transcribe them? Would like to know what it says, especially knowing Sarah spent most of her life in the hospital her husband donated the land for. It seems she had mental health issues.

Are you related to any of this family? If so just ask for a transfer thru the "edit" request tab.
Thank you!

Hugh Crawford - Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Cheyenne, WY
This possibly may be Hugh "Emmett" Crawford. Hugh E. Crawford is listed in the Cheyenne City directories as a Union Pacific conductor residing at the same address as Mrs. Ella Crawford who is a receptionist with the State Dept. of Education.

Re: John Crawford - Lakeview Cemetery
We didn't find any indication that he was a "Jr." nor were there any other Crawfords buried in the immediate area.

RE: Roland Guisti
Thanks for letting me know you posted it. I understand and respect that some members don't want to add anything but dates - I agree with you on having the added insight.
Kind regards,
