|Bio and Links|
I live in Tucson, AZ, which is very far away from my area of interest...mostly Carroll County, IL. I've been working on my family history only since 2009. I picked it up where my late brother left off. He started it ages ago when there were no computers to rely on. Everyone he found was through old family records, interviews, libraries, and cemeteries. He would buy headstones for family members who were buried in Potter's fields or who had only a rudimentary marker. The surnames I'm most closely associated with are White, Woodruff, Rahn, and Miller, all in Illinois but in various counties: Schuyler, Knox, Carroll. My info on the Whites and Woodruffs is sketchy, so I'd really like to find more about them, starting with their graves. My Dad passed away when I was 12 years old, so I never got to ask the questions about his family that have arisen since I began working on genealogy.|
I am not in a position, unfortunately, to be able to be a photo volunteer--at least not yet--but my gratitude for these selfless folks is immeasurable. You perform such an invaluable service for this site and your hard work is much appreciated.
***I would also like to thank the caring people who post flowers on my family's memorials. It brings tears to my eyes when I find that someone has visited a member of my family on their birthday or angel day...or anytime. It is so touching and always tugs at my heart strings when I come across these tokens. If I can't thank each of you individually, I at least want you to know how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness.***

My thanks to D. Frederick Birely on this site for teaching me how to link family members on my bio page!

|Paul Wilde||RE: Earl Pierson obituary|
Shelia - Earl Pierson caught my eye because of your photo request of a marker. I track the requests on Rose Hill and try to fulfill all that I am able to find. I will be going out to the cemetery shortly to hopefully grant your request. On requests, I always look to see if there is anything about the person on their memorial site. I like to know more about them then just the "dash" between the dates. If there is nothing then I try to find something about them. If it is a memorial I have added, then I just add the information under the bio section. If it is a memorial someone else has added, then I share the information with them to add if they so desire.
I, too, am searching for my family and keep running into snags. I search the internet all the time trying to find something, anything in regards to my snags. Someday, I will also find the missing links and information that I so long desire. That is why I try to help out others. One never knows when that one piece of information can make ones day and break the snags.
|Heidi DeMatteo||Fred Olson|
I looked up Fred on Forest Lawns website and 3 come up listed as being buried there. One is Fred Emanuel and the other two is Fred Gordon. It does list the birth dates though just when they passed and all 3 of them are not buried with Mary. I'll keep you posted on what I see when I find Mary.
|Heidi DeMatteo||Mary Olson|
I claimed your request for Mary.
Do you have Fred's info..birth and death so I can see if he's buried with Mary and/or at FL?
|Merf||RE: Charles & Nona Johnson|
You are most welcome! It was my pleasure. I went last week and both the church secretary and I missed them. She looked them up for me because I had to go pick up my daughter, but I called today and she said they had been right in front of us all along! She also added that Charles was not in their records. So she was able to add him. So it was a good thing you made the request!
