Donica/Donaca graves I am hoping you can help me. I am looking for the grave of Elizabeth (Cook) Donica/Donaca. Her husband was Samuel and they lived in Knox Co., IL where she died about 1850. Since she is the daughter of John Cook (b 1774) I am assuming she is buried in Knox County close to them. Could you help me??? Thanks, Lois
Rozetta Truitt Fooks Hi Richard, this is another great aunt of mine. My dear grandmother's sister, and sister to Jean Truitt. Can you transfer management of Rozeta Truitt Fooks burial to me? I am now the proud Sponsor for this memorial #5804837, Rozeta Truitt Fooks in the Oneida Cemetery, Knox, IL.
I represent and am a second cousin to the Fooks family, who are the grandchildren of Thomas W.M. Fooks and his wife Rozeta.
I'm going to try again. Findagrave sent a notice to me to tell me they set me up for Sponsorship of Jean E. Truitt's Mem. #46556858. Can you go into the Memorial for my great aunt, and transfer the management of it? That hasn't happened as of yet. I have so much that I want to add for her, including her links to parents, her bio, etc.
Thanks, and I hope a message from you will come through this time.
Best wishes, Sherry (Krohn) Bradley Former of East Galesburg, IL Presently in Albuqurque, NM
David D. Andrews I added a photo by Bill Scott of Galesburg to the military tombstone of David D. Andrews. It is a shame that this stone is shoved up again a red granite stone for Mr. and Mrs. Dewey D. Andrews. The family doesn't know David D. Andrews. After research, I learned he was from Cuba, IL when he enlisted in Co. F, 100 Ill. Inf. He died during the Civil War.
Is there any way we can find out how this can be corrected or explained?
Thanks a bunch, Sherry (Krohn) Bradley Albuquerque, NM
Can you add a brief bio for this person? Thanks a bunch. Will I be able to link to parents and spouses, plus type biographies myself? Thanks, Sherry Bradley
Jean Elizabeth Truitt, A.N.C., was born June 12, 1884 in Humeston, Wayne County, Iowa. She was the daughter of John Taylor Truitt and Nancy Catherine Fisher. She and her two sisters were taken in by uncles, in Yates City, Illinois as young girls. Jean attended Yates City School, St. Mary's Girls Academy in Knoxville, and Nursing School at St. Mary's Hospital in Galesburg. Jean died of Tuberculosis, contracted when healing others, in Army Hospitals during World War I. After her release as a patient at the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in Aurora, Colorado, she returned to Knox County. Rozetta Augusta Fooks of Oneida,While visiting her sister at Christmastime - 1921, her TB worsened. She died at the home of her sister in Oneida, Illinois, on January 3 1922. She was survived by another sister, Harriet Dell Woolsey (Mrs. Silas E.), a brother, Albert Estle Truitt, nieces and nephews. A life taken too soon, yet a life fulfilled with good deeds and happiness.
Knoxville Cemetery - Krohn burials Hello Richard, I'm sorry to hear about Florence Banks leaving us. She did a lot of good for so many people in need of help. Can you delete the photo, which Florence added to the Memorial for Floyd Wm. Krohn (1903-1956)? I added another photo of the tombstone that is closer in and easier to read. How can I add biographies for my parents and other Krohn relatives? Thanks, Sherry (Krohn) Bradley Albuquerque, NM
Knoxville Cemetery photo requests Hi Richard, I didn't think anyone was taking photo requests at the Knoxville Cemetery. There were so many requests--I guess from all winter. Had you been taking care of the photo requests before winter? If yes, I assumed incorrectly and I do apologize to you. I certainly do not want to take over something that you enjoy doing. I will be happy for you to take the photo requests. I have learned so much about the cemetery! I didn't even know there was a mausoleum there. We did have a miserable winter and I wouldn't have gone to the cemetery either. Stay healthy and best regards, Joanie
