Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 40 years or more, started out with my mother and looking in the Seattle Libraries for information on my mother's family. My father knew mostly about his Morse family, where they came from and how they got to the USA. My mother on the other hand didn't know much except for the maiden names of her mother's people. Needless to say it has been a great journey and adventure in not only the history of both sides but a great pleasure in finding out where our people are from and where their final resting places are. I never would have found out or had been able to see where they are had it not of been for other's kindness and love for the same reasoning of being able to find a loved one lost so many years before. Credit is due to others who have helped in this journey, thanks to all of you who have added a picture or information, very much appreciated!

Hello, you have requested photos at Woodlawn Cemetery in Forest Park, IL. I would be happy to try and look for your request but it can be quite difficult to find a grave without any location provided. Please call the cemetery and request the grave location. They can be reached by phone at (708) 442-8500. Once you have obtained a location please update the memorial in question with the plot information. Thank you.

RE: Susan Agnew Ackles
Hi Melody- I am just getting on Find A Grave for the first time in a long time and seeing your messages. Do we have unfinished business? I'm not certain I ever responded or took care of what you needed me to. Please let me know what that is and I'll take care of it!
Hopefully I already have and this is just a hello!

I had a book put out by the Pelican Cemetery. I don't have any pictures. Sorry I can't help you.

I went to the Ripley Cemetery today. I took a long hard look at Mr Harland's broken stone, on the left-bottom corner there may be the remains of the date "March". That's all.

RE: David Harlan
It's quite a ways to Ripley for me. Jerry Owen, who created the memorial, lives in the Ripley area. Maybe he can find something.

To the best of my knowledge, that stone was lying all by itself. Not many pedastals around. If I slide by that way again, I might do some more looking. Pretty large cemetery.

RE: David Randall
I will try and wander thru Lawn 25 next time I am there and see if I can locate a marker for him. Otherwise, his marker if he has one is likely under layers of needles and leaves. So, then yes that photo is of the general area that I believe him to be in.
