Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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.

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

Eli O. Thorp
I am the 2nd great grandson of Eli O. Thorp. I am now encountering conflicting research. Eli and his SECOND wife Caroline Perkins were married in Bureau County after the death of Eli's first wife Lydia Owen. The problem is that there is one Eli Thorp headstone buried next to Lydia Owen in Bureau County (88975450) and ANOTHER Eli Thorp headstone in Republic County were Eli's second wife Caroline is buried (40230434). Where is Eli actually buried? Both headstones indicate that they are for the same man, although the dates of birth and death are somewhat difference. But otherwise the information is consistent.

I cannot read the inscription on the Bureau County headstone for Eli from the Find A Grave photo. Has it been transcribed into a readable form? Is there any clue in the inscription that might resolve whether or not he is physically buried in Bureau County rather than in Republic County, Kansas (where second wife and several children of the union are buried?)

Please Transfer K. Roberts
Please transfer Jean C. Hendleman Collis #82019362. Jean was a very special lady to me and my family. She was like a grandmother to me we regularly put flowers on her and her husband Bob's grave (in which I hold). It would be much gratitude and appreciation. Please and Thank You Much for all your contributions.

Re: Lyman Tucker, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
I did not find his marker today. If you could give me any family names that he might be interred with, it might help the search. Most of the plots in this cemetery are sold in sets of 6, more or less, for family groups. The area where he is supposed to be is under some oaks. We have had a LOT of rain recently and expect more all of this coming week. I am out there at least once every week so I will continue to search.

Re: Tucker - Dozier, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
In the same plot are

Patricia Tucker Baker 1921-2006
Willis Paul Baker 1919-1991
Dorothy Conway Dozier 1910-1987
James Conway Dozier 1912-2004
Rosa Tucker Dozier 1914-1998
Kate Willits Tucker 1881-1952

I think that is all. Should you need better, clearer photos, please do not hesitate.

Re: Rose Patterson Tucker, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
In the same plot are

Rose Mary P Tucker 1921-1994
George William Tucker 1925-2003
Almeta Watson Tucker 1900-1968
George C Tucker 1890-1968

There was a new burial just within the last few days or week. No name tags or any identifying markers.
I know these are not that great due to the amount of rain we've had and expect to get more all this week. Should you need clearer, better photos, please do not hesitate. I am out there at least once every week.

Blanche Lewis, Evan Lewis & Lela Lewis
Hello again, I forgot to mention that Evan Lewis had a 2nd wife after the death of Blanche.

I sent you an Edit #120374334 for Lela "Sweet" Baker/Lewis - she is buried in Cherry County Nebraska. As Blanche was my Great-Aunt, I feel you can trust that my info is correct - :)
