So please DON'T nudge/kick to see if I'm a dead dog!

Please don't send email of "proof" unless asked for.

Have been doing a limited amount of area cemetery visits, Peoria, Ill.

Surname interests, Uttenhove from Ill. & S.D., DeSutter from Henry County, Ill., Fox & Hechtner from Princeton & Bureau County, Ill., Hartzell/Hartsell and Smith from around Wabash County, Indiana, Princeton & Bureau County, Ill., Jensen/Jenson from Bureau County, Ill. ; Cassin from Mercer County, Ill., Curran from Ill. & Iowa, Cassidy & Collins from Door County, Wisc., and Mooneys & Tullys around Chicago, Ill.

Then there is my Husband's family, Driscoll from Peoria, Ill., and Roberts from Lebanon, Ky. (part of the Md. to Ky. group).

Personal policies

I do not add verbatim obits. Extracted info not naming living individuals acceptable.

I also do not add information from records such as census. May add if rewritten in paragraph form at my discretion.

I like Chris' description so well I'm posting a link to his contributor page Chris' contributor page.

As much as I try to prove or disprove information, I can not guarantee that information provided for memorials is correct. Meaning this information is not usable as a primary source. Photos can be considered as a primary source.

FYI: 1900 Census is NOT an accurate source for birth dates! Their use in cemetery records will mislead people.

The Bridget Green at St Mary's Cemetery in Peoria may be my great-grandmother. She is shown in Blk H Lot 1. Do you know if this area may contain those who were at the Peoria State Hospital? There was a Bridget Green there in 1930. She was not living with my g-gf in his location in the 1930 census.

Thank you for your assistance.

As much as I know is that the information came from contributor Adam Shipp (#48962916). This is second time he has deleted the photo request the last without an explaintion. But he would be the person to ask for more information about where he got the record of no stone. Thank you for asking.

God Bless

Susan Steele 1829-1916
Hello, I am the great-great granddaughter of Susan Zearing Steele and none of my records have her name as being Susanah. Could you please tell me in what records you find her name as being Susanah? That line of my family was very proper & I think you might be right but I would like verification.
Thank you so much for your time.

John Wilkinson
I have made several attempts to change the birth place from England to the USA for John Wilkinson. You keep denying them. Here I have provided the birth place of his grandfather and his father. His father Joel was born in Connecticut. You have him attached to his mother who was born in Kentucky. And as you can see Joel's parents Ichabod Wilkinson was born in Connecticut and served in the Civil War. His wife Anne Taylor also was born in Connecticut. The siblings that you list for John Wilkinson are the same Joel Wilkinson's children.

This individual is within my family tree. As I can see from the number of memorials you have do you also do their family history?

Unless you have other proof that this John Wilkinson along with the family he is attached to was born in England I would appreciate it if you contacted that person to verify if he/she has the correct John Wilkinson family.

Ichabod Wilkinson
BIRTH 4 NOV 1753 New Milford, Litchfield, Connecticut, USA
DEATH 25 MAR 1825 Fleming, Cayuga, New York, USA

Anne Taylor
BIRTH 28 JUNE 1756 New Milford, Litchfield, Connecticut, USA
DEATH 8 FEB 1847 Greenfield, Erie, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA

Aileen Johnson
You made a photo request for her and there is a photo there, what kind of confirmation are you wanting. I added a memorial for Sina, which must be her husband and I added a photo to his which you might like better than what's on Aileen memorial.

RE: Davis
Yes, their crypt was vandalized.

The remains of Roy T. Davis & his wife Virgie have also been removed from American Masoleum. They will be reburied at a future date at the Lutheran Cemetery in Peoria.
