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.

Memorial# 83910879
Hi Mary, You entered Memorial# 83910879, Grant Jones along with his wife Leah and 1 child. In both Grant & Leah's you have their parents names. I was wondering if you are related to this couple and where you got the parent info. I have a postcard from a Grant Jones and family from Kankakee IL he wrote to his cousin Edwin Jones in Missouri. From the research I have done I believe this is my great grandfather (Edwin Jones)cousin. If this is true than Grant's father would be a brother to my great great grandfather Rev George Jones from Wales. Any help would be appreciated so I can confirm this or not. Thank you K

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.
