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: Emma Rastatter Heim
Would you like me to create the memorials and then request photos?

Alice Yem;
to add to the confusion those two Alice's i believe were sister in laws and died in the same nursing home within a few months of each other... they also get buried the same place and it confused me too.. an ex boyfriend was related to them and i was working on his family tree when i came across them.. there are Yemm's in Galesburg where i grew up. i believe they are also related to those two

Hi Shaudau ... I talked to my sister about your offer to let me manage Homer Cox's memorial and she was pleased to hear it so if you would like to do that I am happy to accept it... Thank you

RE: Emma Rastatter Heim
Yes, please do, that would be great. If you would like to create the memorials first, I could "request photo", another feather for your cap!
Thanks, great working with you!

RE: Thank You
You're very welcome! Isn't it great that Find a Grave gives us this venue to honor others that have gone before us. I know I have found information in the early day newspapers here in Jasper county and listed the person and then a relative has found them, when they otherwise would have had no idea where they were buried or what happened to them, especially ones before death certificate became the law and would be buried without a stone in an old neglected cemetery.
Kind regards,

Hi. He was her husband. There are two Alice Yemm's but one was married to an Alfred Yemn who died in 1980

Nice to hear from you! I've made the changes you suggested. If I've made a mistake, let me know. That's a bunch of obituaries to go through, but what a treasure!

Thank you ever so much for transferring Charles' memorial to me. I have a pic of Charles' wife, Winifred, when she was a young girl which I will be adding to her memorial.

It is persons such as you that make this world a better place in which to live.
