|Bio and Links|
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.

I recd a message that my edit for this memorial was accepted this morning. I just checked and see August Joe Simon is now listed twice as her spouse. Once of course is enough!
Are you willing to transfer her memorial to me? I would like to incorporate the info I've found in my research of her life into her bio. If you want me to return the memorial to you, I will transfer it back to you when I finish.
Thank you for working with me on her and her husband's memorials.

|Vicki Edwards||Simon Family - Pana - UPDATE|
I just tried to link Mathilde Josephine Simon to August Simon and Find A Grave is not allowing me to do it. So---it appears you must link these 2 who were indeed married.
Mathilde Josephine: 104678638
Please see my message below from a few minutes ago and thanks again for your help.

Hello Again Rev Sims,
Thanks for your note. Melanie Simon is now correctly linked to husband August J. Simon, she was his 1st wife. In the process, however, it appears his 2nd wife, Mathilda Josephine Valerois Simon, was mistakenly unlinked from him. I will send you an Edit to re-link her.
Bottom line, August Simon had 2 wives: 1. Melanie who died in 1914, and 2. Mathilde Josephine whom he married around 1916; she died in 1949.
Re transfers, I have learned a lot about August and Melanie, so I would be happy if you would transfer those 2 to me (#104678520 & #71075568) so I can write bio's for them. If you prefer to keep August's memorial, then transferring only Melanie's memorial is fine. (I don't know much about wife #2, so please keep her memorial.)
Thanks for your help and feedback. I'll send the edit to re-link Mathilde Josephine to August in a few minutes.

You apparently added a gravestone photo to the Find A Grave memorial for Joshua Sands March:
I believe that photo is not correct for that burial. There seems to have been two Joshua S March's in Illinois in the mid 1800s.
One was the above Joshua Sands March (Find A Grave #76745529) who lived 1840-1897 (s/o Caroline Henrietta Cox Henshaw & Thomas H. March).
The other was a Joshua S. March who died Feb 19 1865 and is buried in a totally different cemetery:
See the above Find A Grave #2557081 - the gravestone photo there looks identical to the gravestone photo you posted above (wrong Joshua March, wrong cemetery).
Ancestry's U.S. National Cemetery burial records (scanned images of cemetery burial records) confirms the info for the second Joshua #2557081 above. But the first Joshua #76745529 (where you posted the photo) is known to have died in 1897, not 1865. The gravestone photo belongs on the other Joshua March's page.
I want to thank you for the photo you have added first! Can you change info on my dad's Find a grave? His mother is not Corine, she was Mary Aileen Carrico Vize, and Patrick and Leroy Vize are his full blood brothers. The others and there are more, are his HALF brother and sisters. It is showing incorrect information. THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE Sherry Vize, daughter of Henry W Vize.

Hello Rev. Sims,
Thank you so much for transferring Louis and Augusta's memorials to me back in mid-November. I have researched the Pana Jehle's extensively and am so happy to be able to work on Louis' biography, especially, as he seemed to have played a very active role in Pana in the early 1900's.

Rev. Sims: Could you please transfer my Aunt Florence and Uncle Arthur's memorial to me. I would like to connect them to other relatives. I'm not sure exactly how this is done. Thanks so much. I appreciate your adding them to the Find a Grave Site. Donna Allen

I noticed you have entered a lot of graves in the above cemetery. Did you have a cemetery book? I entered a grave for Dr. William Campbell. I found the obit in an old newspaper and now someone is wanting to know if his wife is buried there. She died in Iowa in 1945 but he also died in Iowa. I went to our genealogy society but did not find a book for that cemetery. If the cemetery was read, Dr.Campbell either does not have a stone or they missed him. Wondering if you can give me a clue on this. thanks, Kay
