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.

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.

RE: william Nixon
Thanks for writing. You would have to supply more information so I can know what you are talking about. Perhaps you can use the suggestion tab on the memorial so ask your question, so it is linked to whatever memorial you are talking about.

Would you please delete your memorial for Zelma Stufflebeam, my sister. I added her after she was buried and had not noticed yours. My memorial is 172829798. Thank you.

I left a message for you on your request. Josephine is not buried around Jerald. I uploaded Jerlds photo today ,. there are alot of empty plots around him so, maybe hers is unmarked?

I will try to get to Olivet before it gets too cold. If you are not sure this is the cemetery, you can call the church 1 815 663 3731-Nativity of our Lord. You can say that you are family and want to confirm the area of burial has it has been quite a few years since you were last here. See if she will tell you the location-N-S-E W part of cemetery. If you get an answer, just message me , it will save me from walking all over
thanks sue
