Yes I'm STILL ACTIVE 4/2016 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).
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.
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.
Memorial for Mathias E Hafner Hello, I was wondering if I could have access to my great grandfather's memorial so I could put the obituary I just found on it for him. His name was Mathias E Hafner; he was buried at Hope Cemetery in Newell, SD. I didn't get the #. Thanks.
RE: Lone fir Thank you for correction me and your input. I'm Secretary/Treasurer of Lone Fir Cemetery and will be adding the locations of all the graves if that is okay with you. I will be also adding new graves as needed. We added a information sign at the cemetery. I posted the picture of it on the opening page. Without your earlier hard work the cemetery could have provided this information. Thank you for your hard work in taking pictures and cataloging the cemetery. Melinda Crowley
