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".

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: Mona Taylor
She is the mausoleum, they do not allow photos in there and you must get in via security.

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.

Kindest Regards,

RE: Girtie Coombes
That's okay I'm sure she is buried there... But her grave site has no stone to identify her and therefore cannot be pictured.

Re: Clarence Craig

I haven't determined when Clarence Craig's widow died or where she is interred. Perhaps she remarried. Thanks.

His memorial has been adjusted to that cemetery and linked to wife. Would you like to manage his memorial since he's your uncle?
