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.

William T. Roach
Hi, William T. Roach, St. Mary's Cemetery in Peoria, is listed in Find A Gave as having died on Dec. 17, 1907. He was the son of John and Susan Roach who are buried in the same cemetery. His brother John and sister Grace are buried in Blk I Lot 2 with William.

The problem is . . . William Roach is listed in the 1910 census as living with his parents on Mound Street in Peoria. While census records are not perfect, I've not run across anyone who had died three years earlier still being listed on the census.

Could you check the information, headstone, death records, cemetery records, etc. to verify his death date.

William is a 1st cousin of my wife's mother. If his death date can be corrected or otherwise verified it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Fred Richards

Mary Francis Roach Sours
Hi, I put in a correction for Mary Francis. Her family is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in West Peoria. She was married to Benjamin Sours who is also buried there. Her Social Security Index shows her death date as Feb. 15, 1968. There is a Marie Sours listed as being buried in St. Mary's with a death date of Feb. 20. 1968. I am reasonably certain that this is Mary Francis Roach Sours. Mary Francis was born on June 11, 1895. (Mary Francis was the daughter of my wife's grand uncle.) Thanks, Fred Richards

Excellent - I'm going through some old obituaries that my grandmother had saved and found it. Got to shut down now for bad weather -
