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.
Bess St. Pierre THANK YOU for posting the information about the St Anne interments! We had no idea where a great-grandmother was buried. She remarried after the death of her first husband and her daughter died before we came along and had an interest in genealogy. So we appreciate finding her! I would love to have a photograph of her tombstone - Bess St. Pierre - if anyone there would be interested in taking it and sending it. I have posted the request on the cemetery page as well. Again - thank you for posting this information!
