|Bio and Links|
In honor of my mother, Marjorie Valentine (Sims) Harrison, I am submitting her photo with my profile.|
I have been working quite hard on my family history information since 1993.
I have compiled detailed enumerations for 7 1/5 cemeteries here in Coles Co, IL and have posted most of what I have on 5 of those here on Find A Grave at this time. The names of the cemeteries that I have compiled records for are: Stoner, Adkins/Woodson, Brown's (Unity) Chapel, Mt Tabor, McKenzie, Hurricane, Miller-Coartney and Fudge. I've worked some on Kickapoo (Mt Zion), Whetstone, and a few other Cemeteries. I've added links and photos to memorials for all known burials at Mt Tabor, Miller-Coartney and Fudge.
I'm adding family & requested memorials & photos for Mound/Roselawn Cem in Charleston, Bethel and Rest Haven Cems in Lafayette Twp, as well as a numerous others.
I also have over 100 Williams family kin in Harmony Cem in Cumberland Co, IL as well as having made other submissions on memorials in several other cemeteries in IA, IL, IN, OH, WV, and WA.
As a photo volunteer, I have visited several more cemeteries in this area to search for and photograph markers.
I am part of a small group working on cleanup of the Cossell Cem, located NW of Charleston. We are slowly making progress! I was recently informed that a local Boy Scout Troop has been working on the cleanup. I hope to be able to assist them when the project resumes in the fall of 2014.
I am primarily researching: Harrison, Sims, Williams, Reynolds, Malcom(b), Stotts, McCreery, Stoner, Schnorf, Adkins, Pettit. I attend the annual Sims Family Reunion at Fox Ridge State Park in Coles Co, IL.
And, recently, I have begun searching for information on my wife's ancestry. Names include: Thomas, Elder, Brooks, Blake, Johnson, Pilkington, Miller, Offill, Richards, Elliott, Norman, Davis, Wright, Wallace, Beaman, Dage, Perkins, Clark, Brockway, Cooley, Durfey, Skinner, Goodwin, Hull, Fickle, Slaymaker, Voetgling, Beck, and Tatman. (so far). We attend the annual Miller-Elliott Reunion in Dieterich, Effingham Co, IL.
I firmly believe that anyone capable of finding, reviewing and posting information on FAG does not need specific directives from other volunteer contributors about how to manage the memorials they have spent their time to post. If errors or omissions in content are observed, then a suggestion to the contributor with updated information or courteous guidance would definitely be appreciated.

|JSB||Martha Snorf question|
According to the Bio for Uriah Renner (Find A Grave Memorial# 78294826) it states that he was married to Martha Snorf in 1865 and she was born in 1840 which would make her about 15 years old. I wonder if she is the same Martha Snorf.

|Cheryl Esche Herrig-Ness||Wilson F. Goff (# 45588469)|
These are suggestions for Wilson F. Goff
Father: George Emory Goff, Sr
Mother: Mary Frost Goff
I've visited with you before, via email, about the Goff families. I am descended from Wilson F. Goff too, via his son William Hammer Goff. I hope you are doing well. If you ever would like to transfer management of the Goff family memorials at the Unity Chapel Cemetery near Charleston, IL to me, I would be very happy to manage them.
Thank you for all you do!

|David Kennedy||RE: Mayflower passengers|
I am also a descendent of Francis Cooke he is my 10th gr grandpa, and for the Winslows my wife and I both are Winslow descendents her 11th gr grandpa and my 10th gr grandpa is the same person, I think Edward Winslow. It has been along time since i worked on the Mayflower family but I am related to several of them.
I will keep my eyes open for Anna Goodspeed for you.
Thanks so much for trying to find his marker. It's such an old one. I've made notes on his site it couldn't be found.
Appreciate you help!
