I am currently working on researching the 300+ veterans listed on the Soldier's Monument in Plainfield, IL. This covers the Civil War, Spanish-American War and WWI. You can visit my website for the book at the website given below.

One of the Civil War soldiers is featured in a new book by author Elizabeth Manvell. If you are interested, you can find the book, "Story Power! Breathing Life Into History!" on

Linked to her husband. Do you know if there is a page for her second husband?

Hi Caron: I visited your website and found out you had the information there all along. Thanks for researching him and also for your Plainfield Soldiers memorial page and book. Would it be permissible for you to post a photo of him at his findagrave memorial? Thanks so much! Bruce.

Private John Wesley Swackhamer
Hi Caron: I was doing some some research on an allied Will Co., IL line and discovered this subject was killed 8 Oct 1918 in the Meuse-Argonne campaign, the last great allied offensive action of the First World War. His marker is viewable at memorial #55958755, Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery, Lorraine, France. His unit, the 39th Infantry Regiment, took heavy casualties during the fight, about a month before the Armistice was signed which ended all hostilities. His parents [Josephus Swackhamer and Eliza Swackhamer nee Dean] were from Kankakee Co. but he was residing in Plainfield in June 1917, according to his draft registration papers. I noticed he was listed on the Plainfield Soldiers Monument and thought you might be interested. Bruce Myers, contributor #47425897.

RE: Ray and Debbie Faha
You're welcomed, Caron; I was happy to be able to locate them for you. Was Jeanne Goodmann who is also on marker the Fahas' daughter...thought maybe she was also Debbie's mother, but guess not if Debbie's maiden name was Faha. I've only seen three generations together a few times so was wondering if that was truly their relationship.

RE: William and Hannah Dundore George
Please let me know if you would like any other relations transferred to you. By the way, the Zimmermans in your family are no relation to mine, as far as I can tell. My Zimmerman relations came straight from Germany to Illinois, whereas the Zimmermans who were related to the Dundores were of Pennsylvania Dutch stock.
