Bio and Links
I've been doing my family's genealogy for only a few years; I am thoroughly immersed in the hobby. I have been the most grateful recipient of volunteer photos on this site, and would like to pay back the kindness I have received by helping others if I can.

mccormick cemetery
Hi Pam --- I have just been looking around on computer today and looked at the McCormick site and I see that my Dad was left completely on all family members. My Dad was the eldest of the kids and name was Carroll Downes McMullin born in 1896 and died in 1980. i hope you can add him sometime as he really is one of that family. His mother is Armada and father William. We have talked before but I have sort of given up on my geneology. I am just too old to pay much attention to anything anymore. Janice Hanson

Jacob Ryder
Hi Pamela
I have found that Jacob Ryder married a 2nd time
to Adaline ? Thompson between 1860-1870 Henderson or Warren Co., IL or Iowa. She died in Imogene, Fremont Co., Iowa at son-in-law Henry Arthur Birdsall's. Henry Arthur Birdsall son of Timothy
Birdsall of Henderson Co., Il. Henry A Birdsall
married Mary Ellen Thompson 1 Jan 1865 Moline, Rock Island Co., IL.
I am afraid I am working on most current information on Adaline to her past. I found her
Death notice in newspaper "Oquawka Spectator" in Abstracts of "Oquawka Spectator" by Virginia Ross 1985. Also, obtained Jacob Ryder-Rider's Death
Notice in same newspaper. I have asked people to
put information in their biographies so keep checking on them.
There is a Birdsall connection also in the Jacob Ryder family. Also, I think that Adaline and Jacob have a connection to Dutchess Co., New York.
I have a George Birdsall son of Timothy Birdsall that married Nancy Munson. He was a school teacher in Oquawka area. She died young probably childbirth. Nancy Munson Birdsall was d/o my 3rd great grandparents Solomon Munson and Elizabeth Williamson Munson of Warren-Henderson Co. area's.
Any information appreciated.

RE: Rachel Parsons Childs
Hi Pamela, I've done as you asked and unlinked Rachel from the parents who were submitted to me, and accepted on (good) faith. If you know who her parents are, would you please let me know. Anything else you can add would also be welcome. Thank you, David

RE: Hannah R. Kimball stone
You are very welcome! I'm always glad to help.
If you would like me to try to find more information on her as far as a paper trail goes, I'm willing to volunteer to visit the local library and search for census and other records for you. Let me know if you're interested!

Alvord declines
There are 2 memorials for Fred, buried in 2 different places. Someone needs to clean that up. One marker might be a cenotaph? I do not link people with issues like that. Also, I have nothing to verify the parents of Julian. The father is in Mass.,? and the mother in WI. Explanation?

F.A.G. has not provided the proper selections in the 'choice' for decline windows. None of the options fit. F.A.G. needs to deal with that along with the broken(?) tool for the requestor being able to view reasons. Maybe the last issue has been fixed, I have no idea.

RE: Abigail Woodworth stone
You are most welcome. Someone had "reported a problem" yet for some unknown reason I still added her name to my "to find" list. I am so glad I did.
