Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

Hi: Haven't heard from you for a while. I've been back from our trip to IL for a couple of weeks. Hope all is well with you.

RE: Thank You!
Okay, you should now have all the Worden memorials I had posted on the Stice Cemetery site. I hope they lead you to exciting and interesting discoveries!

RE: Thank You!
I posted Ratekin Cemetery just to help researchers. I don't think I had any family there. So, I went ahead and transferred those two Worden memorials to you. As far as I know, I have no connection to the Worden family. There are a lot of Wordens in Stice Cemetery in Warren County. It is another cemetery I posted mostly to help others. My great-grandmother is there, with her husband, but that is all for me. Would you like me to transfer those Wordens to you as well? I am more than willing if you want them.

RE: Thank You!
You are very welcome. I am glad it was helpful for you. Do you have relatives in Ratekin? If you would like, I can transfer management of the memorials for your family members. Just let me know. Also, thank you for how much you have added on Find A Grave. It helps us all.

Joseph and Mary Kathkart tombstones
I am so thrilled that you found the tombstones of Joseph and Mary Kathkart's tombstones. I would love it if you would add the tombstone pictures to the memorial. The Illinois death records for both confirm the dates on the memorials so I will mention the discrepancy of dates on the memorial to explain the contradictions. I have learned that tombstones can be wrong. Joseph was half-brother to my great-grandfather and officiated at the wedding of my great-grandparents, so I'm so grateful for your work to provide the picture of tombstones. Thank you so much!
