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: Thank You!
I was tracking McKee's on Ancestry ad they helped me find dates. If I find dates I always add them when only years are shown. Best wishes - Deen Braly Find A Grave ID #47610288

I was wondering where the death date came from? I know she is not showing up on 1860 census so I always assumed she had passed prior to that. Hoping you have some info to shed some light.

Thanks.

Regards,

Cemeteries near La Harpe
In the past, you've been a big help locating my Dawson ancestors. I'm a descendant of James O. Dawson and Lacy Ann Boyer Dawson. I will be in the La Harpe area later this spring and would like to try to visit cemeteries where they might be buried. If you'd be willing to help advise me, would you kindly email me at rsmich90 at gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

We ran out of time before we could get very far into Illinois! So there are still many places, including your area, for me to get to, hopefully at a time when I can spend several days doing so in order to do all the research. All the rest of the trip went very, very well and I have tons of material now to plow through and process.

Hoping your new year is great,
Ruth Ellen

You have to transfer that memorial back to Shawdau - so she can delete it ...a transferred memorial cannot be deleted by a second owner and the first creator cannot delete it when it is transferred - if you want it gone - transfer to Shawdau & then let her know to delete it. Cheers, Shirleen, history4sure

This is a message I received regarding how to delete the Watson memorial. So I'm transferring the memorial back to you and asking that you delete it. Thanks! And happy research!

Grace Wornom Watson, Find A Grave Memorial# 89291563
Hi Ruth,
First of all WOW! I just looked at you have more than 10,000 memorials. That's just mind-boggling!

I was wondering if you'd delete the memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 89291563) for Grace Wornom Watson for me. I tried to, but since I didn't create it I was not allowed to. I do have her other memorial for where she's actually buried (Find A Grave Memorial# 132106912), and I see that you have already made note of that in George's memorial.

Hope everything's well your way. I still haven't made it to your neck of the woods to do research, but still plan to do so some day.

Hi !
Thank you for creating the memorial for Harry Bischoff! Harry is my wife's g-grandfather. We aren't close to Peoria and have been working to enter the family into Ancestry. We had found his wife Minnie but not Harry...until now!
If you wouldn't mind we'd be happy to manage him & link him up with all his wonderful family.
