ALL SAC's/ transfer requests Must use the EDIT Button
Please DONOT send just the name or the memorial number, I need more information than that. It will help me to do the edits much quicker. In fact, I usually delete any email without the edit.
I've been doing geneaolgy for about seven years and am hooked.

Can you tell me why there are two listings for this Cemetery? One has 147 and the other 21 and some of the same people listed on each

From Jacob Fred Cable obit-
*Obit - The Galva News, Galva, IL Thu 9 Jun 1938, p 6:Cable was born in New York state November 10, 1866. and came to Illinois in early childhood, locating in the vicinity southwest of Galva where he spent the greater part of his life and where he passed away. As a
young man he was united in marriage with Lydia Colllnson, a sister of Oscar Col­linson of Galva, and she passed away in 1905. She left two small sons. In 1907 Mr. Cable was united in mar­riage with Mrs.Hannah Messmore Col­linson, wife of the late Luther Collin­son, and the couple took up their resi­dence on the Collinson homestead there.

The IL marriage index does not cover the time frame in question if they were married in Knox Co.

RE: Charles Sherrfius
Thank you for the message. Charles Sherffius, Sr., was my 2nd great grandfather.

He died in Leoti, Wichita County, Kansas, on March 7, 1929. After his wife Mary died, he moved to Leoti to live with one of his daughters (Susie Smith) and her family.

I have two sources: (1) the 1920 US Census and (2) a digital copy of his actual newspaper obituary. incorrectly has him listed as Charles Sharllens and his daughter incorrectly listed as Susie Sharllens in brackets, although if you look at the actual census record, I don't see how they could make a mistake like that.

I would forward a copy of his obituary to you, but I don't know how from this message. If you show me how, I sure will.

If I can help in any other way, please let me know and thanks again.

- Brad

RE: Joseph/ Joel
I know Joel, father of william Carrol Wilkerson is buried there. Will have to look at my pictures to see if you have the correct marker, it was getting real faded. My grandpa William Bryan Wilkerson (not buried there) was William Carrol's son.

Harry Phillips
You have a headstone photo request for Harry Phillips (1889-1957) at Rose Lawn Memorial Estate. I looked for him and did not find him, but that does not mean he isn't there.

I did find a Harry Phillips (1919-1979) who shares a headstone with probably his wife who may still be living. He is buried beside
Paul Phillips
June 29, 1881
January 3, 1962
and next to Paul is
Proskawea Phillips
March 4, 1893
October 24, 1952

If these are your Phillips and you would like to add them, I will upload the headstone photos. Otherwise, I will add them. Please let me know.
Thank you

RE: Nash photos
