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.

I am emailing a copy of information for them. It was submitted by their granddaughter to the Osborne County Historical & Genealogical Society in 1977, for the printing of the book, The People Came. I am sending edits to reflect this information. Thank You.

William Wilberforce Wright - Find A Grave Memorial# 50611312
Hello and thanks for posting the photo of his grave. I'm wondering if you would consider allowing me to post your gravestone photo for William (or any other of your photos of my family members) to my file. I have no interest in the photos for anything other than genealogical purposes and in the photo description I place a credit line advising who the original photo belongs to.

Thanks so much for your consideration.

Camp Lyon, Gladfelters and the 86th Illinois
In answer to your question, "Did you know there is a marker designated for Camp Lyon on the corner of Prospect and Republic in Peoria?"
OH YES! In my younger, living history days, when I was actively portraying a soldier from the 86th, we held a number of living history events there in Glen Oak Park and we did several memorial services at the monument. There is also a marker at one of the corners of Camp Peoria on the near north side.
Thanks for checking though. Baxter
