Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

Alice Wright-Pranke
Dear Rev. Sims

Alice is my Grand Aunt, sister of my grandmother Laura Wright-Fowler. You mentioned obits you may have which would be interesting. Do you know if there are any Prankes or relatives of that family that could be contacted to see if there is a picture of her husband who I seem to remember was a Judge Pranke. He had been married before marrying my Grand Aunt. Thanks for any information you may have. Ann Schwendler

John Alvin Merrifield
Hello, my name is John Monroe.
I am looking into my family history that includes the Merrifields in the Christian County Pana Illinois area.
My Grandmother was Carolyn Louise Merrifield.
My great grandfather was William David Merrifield.
I am now looking for the resting place of my great grandfathers dad,
(John Alvin Merrifield). I can not find anything on him since 1910 in Danville, illinois. Any help locating John Alvin would be greatly appreciated. If you have any information that you can pass along please let me know. You can contact me , John Monroe , (E-Mail)
Please put John Alvin Merrifield in the subject line.
Thank You,
John Monroe

I have noted your memorial for James Franklin Sims. Is he an ancestor of yours? If so, I would encourage you to consider joining the SSAWV to honor his memory.

It is correct. Thank you for taking the time out to fix it. I was trying to but it would not let me.
