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.

Find A Grave Memorial# 70332733
Mary, the entry for Nettie Croxen Find A Grave Memorial# 70332733 at Kankakee Cemetery, Kankakee, Illinois reads Coxen for her last name. It should be Croxen. I am a Croxen and she was married to William Arthur Croxen and the mother of William C Croxen who is also buried at the same cemetery. Thank you, Cynthia Croxen Butler

Find A Grave Memorial# 66979733 is wrong
Find A Grave Memorial# 66979733 is wrong. Family Links were calculated.

William H Becker
Birth Jan 1867 in Illinois, USA
Death 17 Jul 1941 in Kankakee Towwnship, Kankakee Country, Illinois, USA

1900 US Census for Sarah J Becker shows William H Becker as head of household with family.

1910 Census shows Sarah J Becker as head of household with family.

1927 City Directory shows Sarah as widow.

family Links do not match this record.

Keep up the good work.
