Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing my family genealogy for over 40 years. All of my ancestry lines go back to Germany and when they immigrated to the U.S. they tended to settle in Illinois - mostly Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. I grew up in Iroquois County and have spent my adult life in Kankakee County. I am a charter member of the Kankakee Valley Genealogical Society and a member of the Kankakee Historical Society. I worked 15 years for Mound Grove Gardens of Memory in Kankakee, Illinois and assisted the Genealogical Society in compiling the Mound Grove book they published. I am a volunteer at the Kankakee Public Library assisting patrons with their genealogy. Genealogy and local history is a passion of mine. I am proud to be a contributor to Find A Grave and welcome additions and corrections to the information I have added to Find A Grave.

Paul DePatis first name.
Thanks for managing the site of Paul Depatis, and for finding record of his actual first name of which we were not aware. We don't know where his wife is buried, but I have seen record of her name being Agnes Bovie, Josephine Bovee, and most convincingly Josephine Beauvais.
Thanks again, Pat

I have no more information than what you can see. All the photos I have from that cemetery were posted. Hope you can find more info!

Stephen Richey Moore of Hamilton Co OH & Illinois
Thank you for your work on the Illinois branch of my immigrant, Charles Moore/Hannah McWhinney family. I am cleaning out some papers and noticed my old notes from one library trip, on Richey Tracks, a book, which included an update (extra book if I am recalling correctly). I do not own it. Here I wrote that on p37 of the update, the Harwood and Moore families were discussed. Stephen Richey Moore/Lucy Ann Cady was designated, 4-38, in its nomenclature.

I sent you several edits for your wonderful Moore entries tonight, but just in case you need other details in the future: my typed notes say Harry MacFarlane (with a final e, but you write MacFarland-I do not know which is more accurate) was husband of Mary Cady Moore b.1861; Edith Moore b. 1863 [so whether the single date of 1864 is actually a late 1863 birth date or not?], a sister to Claude, Alfred, et al; Stephen Richey Moore Jr b. 1865 m. Carrie Hadley; Alfred David Moore b. 1868 m. Mary Byrne. Since none of these remarks are edits-- I add them here in case you need them-- Hope you find some living Moores, and be sure to see the extensive findagrave entries-thanks again very very much!

RE: Chauncey Lake
Thank you! It does kind of sound like he married her twice, doesn't it? You find things like that happening in modern times, but don't expect it a century and a half ago. :O

Would you happen to have any information of Charles L. Herr and/or his wife Sarah Ann 'Sadie" (Jack) Herr?

He is my GG Uncle and grew up in Piper City prior to making his home in Kankakee.

I have been trying to determine if he had a second marriage after Sadie's death.

Does the name Bessie 'Linnie' Jack mean anything?

Best regards,

RE: Herbert Hansen
Do you have the Mound Grove cemetery records, Mary? I've very interested in some names if you do!
