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.

Lucinda Younker Walters
Hi! A friend of mine works in the Wayne, NE library, and had a lady come in recently who had found an 1855 Ohio wedding certificate buried in a wall in her house. She is trying to find relatives who might want it. The bride was Lucinda Younker Walters, whose grave memorial you created. #79946120 Any chance you are related?
Thanks! Kendra H

RE: william Nixon
I'm sorry -- I left you a message (I thought) with the original date the obituary ran, plus I also sent it as a correction. I can send everything again if need be -- just let me know.

RE: william Nixon
Went to and got the original publication date pretty quickly (also sent it via "suggestion" link on the memorial):
Dakota County Herald, Dakota City, Nebraska
Friday, February 7, 1908 Page 4

Here's the link if you want to visualize it:

You probably don't need the commemorative edition info, but I can get it if you want. I think I got it in the Nebraska online newspaper archives when I was researching something else.

Thanks for your thoroughness!

RE: william Nixon
Thanks for your quick response.

Off the top of my head, I think the obituary was reprinted in an Old Settlers commemorative edition of the paper -- had the obits of a number of Old Settlers, as I recall, spanning a number of years. But, you've right -- it does foster confusion. I will try to make time soon to dig back and see if I can locate the original obituary, or add a clarifying note about the circumstances of the reprinting.
