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 helped to inventory and photograph two cemeteries in their entirety: East Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois and Oakwood Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois. I also have done extensive work in Marywood Cemetery in Aurora, Illinois, West Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois, and Calvary Cemetery and Glen Oak Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois.

I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I will gladly make corrections or add information. I try to process requests as quickly as possible, but please allow the recommended time. Please do not use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines. Flowers are to be tokens of respect; flowers left for any other purpose will be reported.

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 add appropriate photographs to any of my memorials, and I would very much like to know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs myself.

Out-of-guidelines transfer requests will be evaluated individually. Please do not take me to task if I do not transfer when such a request is made. Inappropriate or abusive comments will be reported.

"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."

Thanks for pointing this out; my suspicion is that it is one person, with 2 errors - the death date on the gravestone, and the burial place on the death certificate. It's not entirely impossible that there were 2 couples with similar names, though. I don't believe I found her obit either.

Just wanted to stop by and leave you a Thank You! for adding the bio to John's Memorial, it is very much appreciated! I am still researching and discovered more clarification in the 1900 census and hope to discover more information from the state archives in Minnesota.

Hi there! Thanks for the heads up on the confusing inscription. I linked him to his wife, Lennie May Eaton Wade. Have a good day!

Thanks for the correction of the year of death. I am surprised the system even took that typo of 19992. Well, I appreciate your help.

I am surveying the cemetery and adding info to Find A Grave. Thanks for pointing out my typing errors and adding info. If you want to manage Winslow Patterson or any other memorials I have created, please let me know. I am happy to transfer.
