Bio and Links
Bio Photo What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.

I have done extensive work in the following cemeteries:

Calvary Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

East Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois

Glen Oak Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

Kaneville Cemetery, Kaneville, Illinois

Marywood Cemetery, Aurora, Illinois

Oakwood Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

Resurrection Cemetery, Geneva, Illinois

River Hills Memorial Park, Batavia, Illinois

Saint John the Baptist Cemetery, Winfield, Illinois

West Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois

I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I gladly will make corrections or add information. Please do not use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines.

Feel free to use any of my photographs for non-commercial use, but please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please let me know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs and flowers myself.

"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

“The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point, but they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance that fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. The soul of the murderer is blind; and there can be no true goodness nor true love without the utmost clear-sightedness.”

RE: Photos in Resurrection Cemetery
Thank you for all of the information you added today to the memorials/headstone photos I have been adding. It is much appreciated.

You have done a lot of work in many cemeteries in the area. I appreciate all of the work you have done in completing information on so many people. I'm sure the families appreciate it.

Ann Lanphear - # 74268576
Dennis,
Looked into this further. You are ABSOLUTELY correct! Her 2 children all have the Federal Census' listing mother as born in England. So she can NOT be a daughter of my Christopher Payne & Elizabeth nee' Dawson - as some trees on Ancestry.com say. She would have to be born in Illinois if she was part of my ancestors.
Then got to wondering, and looked at Ann Lanphear's 1850 Federal Census. She is listed on page 13. On page 15 there is a "William Pain" (Payne) age 60, and his wife "Hardeth" age 56. Both born in England. I'll bet these are Ann's parents! My conclusion at any rate....
Yah, left her in my tree, but deleted parents. So she's floating free out there. After going to the work I did, maybe someone else will pick up on it and can use it. Put under comments what I found.
THANKS SO MUCH for your help on this!
Blessings,
Sharon

Thank You
Thank you for checking for a tombstone for Cora Bruce. I really appreciate your effort in that and for going the extra mile to check the cemetery records. Much gratitude from someone a long way from Illinois.
