|Bio and Links|
Hi, I am Cindy Elschide. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancester's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.|
My husband & I have been known to center a vacation around cemeteries, libraries and courthouses. With visits with family and a little bit of site seeing thrown in.
My father's line includes Brooks & Haybron(southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire England and Snows from East Riding Yorkshire England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
My husband's line includes Peter Kappis/Cavis a Germany Mercenary in the Revolutionary War; Peter's son who was the Engineer for the John Bull Train which currently sits in the Smithsonian in Washington DC; Ehlschides from Germany; His grandmother Helen Robertson was born in Scotland (her grandfather died while building the Firth of Forth Bridge) and his grandfather (Gerald McCann)was descended from Irish (Boyle and Corbett)who fled the potato famine to come to Canada.
I had visited the Find a Grave site before but just recently realised that I should have been adding to it--a long time ago! I find it has brought great enjoyment to me to share the photos I take with everyone on the web in hopes that they help others.

RE: ISAAC BROOKS
How early are these records? Do they have them for Van Buren County too as early as say 1880? His parents last known place was Chequest Twp., Van Buren Iowa in 1880 census. Don't know if Van Buren does or not.

You are very welcome - Happy Searching!!!
|Donna Gliwa||RE: Union Corners Cemetery Grant Park Illinois|
Hi Cindy! I read your question regarding Samuel Snow and Annie Snow. Sadly, I do not know anything about their lineage. If you have various connections to others found at Union Corners Cemetery, I would have to speculate that they are related to you some how. This cemetery is located, in the middle of no where, surrounded by farm land. The town population currently of Grant Park is less than 1300, a very small community. Perhaps if you have an Ancestry account you will be able to uncover a family connection! Good luck with your researching. Have a great day.
|JOANNE IWINSKI-MILLER||Albert Walters-Roselawn Cemetery|
Cindy, can you when the weather gets better take a photo of Albert Walters in the Roselawn Cememtery for a family member? A marker was just put in place for Albert Walters and he is not on findagrave. I would do it myself but I am in Florida. Thanks Cindy.....Joanne

Recently I went out to South Canaan Cemetery to try to fulfill your photo request for Robert's grave. I didn't find a marker for Robert but I did see a grave beside Leo (his father) that was recently decorated but unmarked. Do you know if this could be Robert's grave?
Let me know - Jim
