Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

Your welcome. Trying to get the headstones submitted that I took way back in 1999. How are you related? John was my 5th great grandfather.

Michael Kerley
additional info Forest Quillen Kerley
THANK YOU for initiating and maintaining the find-a-grave page for my father. You may want to go in and edit info, as my father had 4 primary siblings who are not listed:
Sidney, Jr. 1898-1899
Ida Mae Kerley Burton 1900-2002
Clyde Charles Kerley 1906-1967
Maurice Daniel Kerley 1908-1968
Thelma Grace Kerley Kiefer Fair 1911-2003

Several names are mis-spelled in records and transcriptions,
including his father's (Sydney) and his father
Miral (spelled Kirley on his grave marker in Bowling Green, Ky.)
Sydney Walker Kerley was the census enumerator in 1910, where he spells his first name "Sydney" rather than his grave marker spelled "Sidney"...

RE: Singley
I am so sorry there is no stone. There is one unidentified cross in the James/Singley plot, the sexton is trying to find the records for the cross.

Mathias Gilles Mchenry Illinois
Hello Jim: This Mathias Gilles is a duplicate listing as the other Mathias Gilles file in St.Marys cemetery Mchenry has a photo of the stone. I have sent a message to both owners of both files to please merge them. St.Patricks cemetery in Mchenry Illinois says that Peter Gilles (died 1899) is NOT in either of their cemeteries. I will continue to investigate and try to find him. Thanks,Chuck Berndt Mchenry Illinois photo volunteer
