Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing Genealogy for over 35 yrs. and began locating graves and photographing tombstones in 1980. I mainly add or maintain memorials for my family or my husband's family.

I have added personal photos to some of these memorials. I went to great lengths to find photos, make negatives and/or scan them, and restore them. Just so you know, beware: downloads these personal photos for their use without consent and without credit to the source. Since I personally restored my ancestral photos, I am unhappy that they use the results of my work without giving me the credit.

Bock Family
Hello Ruth, I just requested links to Gretchen Bock Snethen's parents. In case you are researching them, I just added all the Bock family members to the Walnut Hill & Cedar Lawn Cemeteries. The info is from cemetery records and I will add more as I search obits and Ancestry.

You are very welcome Ruth, I am glad to have helped out. It's great you have been able to find who the parents were of the children buried in Walnut Hill.

I accepted the edits for William. I will be happy to transfer that memorial to you so you can fix it as you would like. I am not related. Just let me know if you want it, please.

Infant Snethen photo request
According to the Walnut Hill Burial Book, this infant is in Walnut Hill Cemetery. Clara and Oren are buried in Cedar Lawn Cemetery which is beside Walnut Hill. That book refers to the infant as "Snethen Infant of O". The name "Oren" is most likely cut off because of a limit on the number of characters in the first name data field.

RE: Snethen memorials
I checked the records for the Snethens' (some listed as Sneathen), and all were also on Find-a-grave except one. I made the memorial for Infant Snethen, child of Howard, who died on June 19, 1934 and buried June 20, 1934 in Memorial Park Cemetery. The record does not show a stone. If this is family, feel free to request a transfer.
The next time I get to the cemetery, I will look for Infant Snethen, child of Oren, listed with a stone in Walnut Hill, but if I don't see anything I will check Cedar Lawn where the parents are buried.

Yes I think you are right after looking at it again, that it does say 2 months instead of 2 years. Rachael Oppy and Cyrus Halloway didn't get married until 1871 so I don't think she would have been born until 1872 which was the year she died. When I go to Watseka again, I will look to see if I can find any obituaries for the family. Thanks, Linda Lyons
