Bio and Links
I have been doing family history research since completing a cub scout merit badge over 30 years ago. As a teen, I began walking and cycling through area cemeteries, noting familiar surnames and wondering if they were related. In high school, I helped a friend's grandmother work on her family history, as she had trouble reading what she had typed. This was "old school" genealogy - collecting and trading books, writing letters to genealogy societies, and contacting various relatives by telephone and mail. Times have changed!

I am also a licensed Amateur Radio operator. Licensed as KA9HTW in 1980 (Novice), upgrading to Advanced class in the spring of 1981. Later upgraded to Extra class, changing my call to WQ9T. I work as a journeyman electrician, and am a member of IBEW local 34, Peoria, for over 25 years. Former member UFCW. I have been married for over 22 years, with two children.

William D. Richards
Wm. D. Richards was my great grandfather. I recently discovered that even tho he lived in Wayne County,Ill, he died in Jefferson County. I got a copy of his death cert from the Jefferson County Courthouse. According to the death certificate he was born April 28, 1860 in Jeffersonville, Wayne County, Ill and he died on March 28, 1921 in Mt. Vernon, Jefferson County, Ill.

HUDSONs
I just wanted to let you know, that I can only go by what SusAnn Fuller left with me, and I noticed her bio for Thomas Hudson has a list of children. So I went back and deleted the spouses and children that I could from his memorial till we can get it straighten our. You new info, showed me Id better search a little stronger about that fammily branch, since Ancestry is going to make trees out of our posts :(

Info RE: John W. Crawford
Hello, I see you manage the memorial for John W. Crawford (#13724968). There are no dates on his memorial, and also no photo of the grave. I am assuming this memorial was entered from a cemetery record. Could you provide any additional information from this record? I am looking for John Crawford, first husband of Elizabeth Snapp and father of Sarah Ann Crawford Park. We believe he died about 1834. Any information you could provide would be very appreciated. Thank you!

Ferrington / Freeman
Thank you very much for the information on Warren E. Ferrington. It makes it very clear why Gerald Arthur Freeman and Alfred L. Freeman operated the Northwest Rug Manufacturing Company in Portland, Oregon in 1905. There is a Daisy E. Freeman and a Daisy E. Ferrington listed in the small city of Portland. I have not concluded that they are the same person, but I would not be surprised.

Your mention of Alfred moving on to California helps a lot with the fact that Gerald and Daisy started a Washington apple orchard in 1911!

Thank you very much for the hints!

Little Grove Cemetery
Letting you know this cemetery is actually in Jefferson County's side of Walnut Hill, IL. The north side of Walnut Hill Rd. is in Marion County, and the south side of Walnut Hill Rd is in Jefferson County, IL (that's the dividing line between the two counties). Someone very rudley pointed this out to me several years ago and now I see others thought it was in Marion County, also. If you go to Little Grove Cemetery Jefferson County, IL you will find many more burials listed there in case your are searching for anyone else. Enjoy your searching.
