Bio and Links
Bio Photo Raised in S/W Vermilion County, Illinois, I served in the U.S. Army from 1963-1966. After the military I worked two years for Frasca Aviation (located at the corner of Green and Neil Streets, Champaign). I retired from the Champaign Police Department in 1998, having served 30 years. My interest in local history led to a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published of members of Western Star Lodge No. 240 and the city police department. This led to treks through local and regional cemeteries. If you find errors or changes necessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries. I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds and Buckles. Most were from south and west central Indiana. If you are a relative (within three generations)I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries, also through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.

RE: Alan Atteberry
All I had for him so far that is not already there was the link to his birth mother, Norma.

RE: Alan Atteberry
Ah...makes sense to me.

He is a relative of mine, since he was the son of my great aunt Norma and was born the year after I was born.

Norma's memorial ID # is 28144860, if you want to add it.

Thanks for the reply.

Alan's birth mother's married name was Hall, not Blanchard.

Aunt Mary was the Blanchard.

Transfer of memorial
I see the Cannons transferred Alan Atteberry's memorial to you.

I was curious as to whether you are related to him or not.

His mother, Norma Marie (Williams) Blanchard was the sister of my grandmother, H. Bernice (Williams) Willis.

A number of the Williams extended family have been transferred to me, or will be as soon as the current maintainers read their messages and transfer them.

RE: Henry Wesley Heubner
David -

I am happy to transfer Henry's memorial to you as you are much more closely related than I. I'm only his 4th cousin so you and I are 4th cousins once removed. I have more information about the Huebner family if you are interested. You can email me directly at

Can you please change the spelling of this couple's last name? I just added a record because I could not find them. Thank you.
I will delete my record I created for Elsie O'Loughlin.
