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!

RE: Bertha nd Arlie Totten
Well, that was sure lucky for me! Thanks again and also for making a memorial for Lester. You're a great find-a-grave volunteer! Can't wait to tell my aunts that we have found Aunt Bertha!

Bertha nd Arlie Totten
Just cannot thank you enough for adding the photos of these graves for me! I have searched for information about Bertha Stroud Totten (my great grandmother's sister ) for so long, but after finding an obituary for Arlie, mentioning the cemetery, I took a leap of faith that Bertha was buried there, too. Now, thanks to your answering my photo request, I finally know where Bertha rests and when she passed away. Bless you !Lynda Elliott Dixon

Clara Salter
I updated Clara Stecker Salter as you requested. I looked on the Illinois Statewide database and found her father, Charles, died in Peoria Jan 29, 1921, and her mother Nov. 12, 1935 in Peoria. Clara is not related to me, but she was married to my great-great uncle, Benjamin Salter. If she is related to you, I would be happy to transfer her over as I don't trace the "in-law" side of my family.

What great work you have done. I would be interested in managing the following two sites, as they are my great-grandparents, John D. Allen & Amy Benson Allen. Thank you! Patricia

Many thanks for all of the photos taken at Swan Lake Memory Gardens!
Were all of these taken in "Devotion"?
