Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 6 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, and Miller-Coartney. 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.
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 few 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.
