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".
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
RE: Mona Taylor Sir, I can only tell you what I know to be a fact at this time. You most certainly can put the photo requests back up. I just wanted to pass along what the current situation is at this place. Respectfully, James
RE: Phone request for John Waller I have been informed by cemetery staff that regretfully there is no grave marker for John Waller nor for his daughter. I have sent an informational edit for his memorial with his year of birth and the location of his grave site. Also, since she didn't have one, I went ahead and established a memorial for his daughter, Adah Waller Gregg and connected her to John.
