I have been researching since the late 1960's. Back when we used manual typewriters, carbon paper and hand wrote many letters. My research can be found at Rootsweb World Connect. My main areas of research are in Logan, Marion, Wayne and White Counties of Illinois as well as Columbia County, New York.
Thank you for your edit requests for Fred Charles Morey buried at North Shore Garden of Memories. I accepted the date of birth, but I wanted to explain why I declined the one for his first name.
Obviously, the F on Fred had worn to being unreadable when I transcribed the stone, so I'm glad you pointed that out. However, when I went to ancestry(dot)com to research his name, I found two entries that showed his first name as Fred, not Frederick. One of those was the application for the headstone itself. I have changed his name on the memorial to Fred, not Frederick as you requested.
Augustine Smith I note that you have recently added a memorial for said Augustine Smith, # 154813780. You claim in his "biography" that he had a daughter named Matilda. Would like to know where you obtained this info, as I have never heard of a daughter named Matilda. Regards, Amy
pitts cemetery I just got back and did what i could, there were a couple of large stones face down that i could not photograph. also the tree branches were so thick that there were several small stones i could not reach. I did get a photo of the house for you. Clytie
pitts cemetery I located the cemetery, and the man who lives in the Pitts home, is curious how you are related to the people in the cemetery. It is very overgrown and i am going back with some lopers, i was able to locate 4 of the headstones you requested, but silly me my batteries were dead. i will also send you a picture of the house if you wish. it is only about 5 min. from me. clytie
Re:Skinner & Gaddes I had looked for their headstone on a couple of occasions this past year, w/o success. Sorry I didn't find it sooner. I only just realized I had taken the photo in my most recent visit to photograph that section of the cemetery. I also have an urge for a piece of chocolate cake, keep up the good work.
