Bio and Links
Bio Photo In an effort to find my missing Aunt, Lorraine B Hurd (nee Knapp), I came upon Find A Grave and genealogy. Five years, 7 months and 19 days later, I finally found her!!! How? Through a posting on Find A Grave by a member volunteer!!

A link to her profile is listed below.

This page is dedicated to her.

Finding, documenting and sharing through this venue helps to build family stories and honor those we loved as well as those whom we never knew.

Family is important!

"The family is our refuge and our springboard; nourished on it, we can advance to new horizons. In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." Alex Haley

The memorials I add or manage are all relatives. You may use any / all photographs that I have added if you credit "Tom Knapp" as source. Source is important in that if others want original documentation or additional information, they know where to seek.

Suggestions, corrections, additions, etc are always welcome to those memorials I manage.

A hearty "THANK YOU" to all the volunteers!!! Your efforts are greatly appreciated and create everlasting memories for generations to come.

RE: Cunha Photos
Wow! I would love to learn how you found her after all those years....I am so fascinated with these types of stories and thrilled for your family. Interesting she was last seen in California but died in Illinois. Please let me know when you finish the bio. I look forward to reading it and hearing more. Congrats!

Hi Tom,

Of course you may use them, and no credit to me is necessary. I am happy I was able to help you in your research.

Amelia Buck
You were looking for Amelia Buck in the Oak Grove (Cass County IL) Cemetery. I was looking for my Buck family and came across Amelia J. Buck 1858-1930 in the Beardstown City Cemetery. Maybe she is the one you are looking for.

RE: Rocco Consentino
Hi Tom...I left a few names with the Cemetery Office to have them locate plots for me and I included Rocco's name...Not sure if they will try and look through some of the files but they have always been more than helpful to me on other things. I know they don't list burials by name but I did tell them about it. Maybe we will get lucky...All the best, Ed McD

Rocco Consentino
Hi…Any chance you have developed additional info re his date of death ?….I would be happy to ask the Cemetery Office to do a little research if they had a bit more info. I often visit the Cemetery where he is possibly buried so I will keep my eyes open, just in case..Ed McD

Harold Kocha
Hi. I fulfilled your request for Harold Kocha. He is part of a large plot. On it, in addition to Harold, are: Lorraine (Kocha) McCornock, Edward Kocha (son), Edward & Frances McCornock & Delores, Francis Paul, & Willard Herrmann. I have added photos for all of them. If there was already a photo (like on Lorraine's for example) I added the headstone that was missed when the last person took the photo. I hope these help in your search.

RE: Jones
You are very welcome. You may use the photos and no credit is necessary. I take the photos to help others not to glorify myself.
