Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in S/W Vermilion County, Illinois, and served in the U.S. Army from 1963-1966. After the military I worked sometime with Frasca Aviation (at that time 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 on the local masonic lodge and city police department. These interests led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries. If you note any errors or changes neccessary 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.

Dear David, thank you for all your work it meant so much to me. I am just beginning geanology and I am totally unfamiliar with how and what to do so I do not understand what it means to take over the memorial Do I do something or what? Thank you. Heather Harker isbell

DeBarge, George R.
Thank you for adding my father's memorial and photo of his headstone in Mt Olive Cemetery, meorial #80334307. It is very appreciated. I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer it to me? I admire your dedication to adding so many. Thank you again.

RE: George Barsh
Hello, David:
The Barsches and the Hessburgs are relatives on my mother's side of the family. I would be happy to take any of their memorials off your hands.

Thanks for doing the groundwork and adding photos. I live in northwest suburban Chicago. If there's anything I can do for you, let me know.
Thanks,
Larry Olson
