Bio and Links
Bio Photo I LIVE IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS & HAVE BEEN DOING FAMILY GENEALOGY FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
I ENJOY TAKING PHOTOS OF HEADSTONES FOR OTHER FAMILIES WHICH ARE TOO FAR AWAY TO VISIT THE CEMETERY.
I ADD THE NEWSPAPER OBITUARY (WHEN POSSIBLE), WHICH IS A HELPFUL TOOL FOR FAMILIES WANTING INFORMATION ON A RELATIVE. BEFORE ADDING MY INFORMATION, I CHECK FIND A GRAVE VERY CAREFULLY AS NOT TO HAVE A DOUBLE ENTRY.
GREAT WORK IS BEING DONE WITH FIND A GRAVE. MANY FAMILIES HAVE A CHANCE TO RECONNECT WITH THEIR ROOTS.
(2010-2012) I HAVE WALKED, TRANSCRIBED, & CREATED NEW CEMETERY REFERENCE BOOKS FOR THE MOULTRIE CO. GENEALOGICAL & HISTORICAL SOCIETY. CEMETERIES I HAVE TRANSCRIBED ARE: GREENHILL, MASONIC HOME, FRENCH, GRAHAM CHAPEL, TURNER & KELLER. OTHERS ARE ON MY LIST OF 'TO DO'.
I AM WILLING TO MAKE TRANSFERS WITHIN THE 4 GENERATION "FIND A GRAVE" GUIDELINES WHICH ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer. PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
For EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS I will gladly make additions, corrections or links.
PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send the information.

RE: Eaton's and England's
Thank you for all the work you are doing. It is nice to see the family connected on Find A Grave. I remember Nellie, Charlott and Catherine. I have a question. Can you find Homer Eatons two sisters?
Thanks again

Dear JMS,

Hello. I was wondering if you know where a friend of mine is interred-- John L. Payne Jr. I'm pretty sure he was Alberta Payne's grandson, his memorial # 128545639.
I was living out west at the time and didn't go to his funeral. Any info you might have would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Lisa

RE: Ruth Ann Fread
The cemetery is Greenhill Cemetery in Moultrie Co, Il. The memorial says created by Dorothy Butt, the photo says added by JMS. Is Dorothy who I should be in contact with rather than you? ~ Bert
