Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy several years ago, while attending a family reunion. Someone made the statement "If someone doesn't write this information down, then it's going to be lost". I realized how true that was, so I began my searches. I think "Family" is very important, and sometimes younger generations don't think much about the present time, then later begin to wonder. Of course, after all the info has been gathered, then family members request copies of the info, which I am happy to share.

Now that I have become aquainted with Find A Grave, I am trying to get as much info and photos added, as possible, to help others locate their loved ones.

If requesting transfers, or asking me to do corrections or additions, please do so, through the edit tab on the memorial you are requesting.

Martha Walton Davis Shifflett
The bio states she was born on Walton Mountain, VA. Walton Mountain, VA does not exist, it is called Schuyler, VA. I was wondering where this information came from. I see that a grandson submitted it.

Marcus Jett Root
Janice thanks for adding the marker photo for Marcus. I did check out his middle name, it is Jett on his death record. Not sure why it is L on his marker.

Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947 for Marcus Jett Root.

Thanks again,

Hi Janice,

Thank you so much for the picture of Milton's tombstone. I was planning a trip up to do just that but was dreading the long drive about 6 hours round trip just to take one picture.. But you saved me time and gas. Thank you again.

Adamson postings
Thanks so much for the Adamson postings. I had looked several times in Wabash County, with limited luck. A son, Francis is buried at the Ridge Cemetery. Are you related to this family?

RE: Samuel Smallwood #106878783
Thank you for your quick reply.

There is a small shed on the east end of the cemetery between the cemetery and Peterson Park. The supervisor of the park and cemetery, Brad Benefiel, very graciously showed me several documents including a map of the cemetery, the transcript book of burials (I think he said made by a local historical society), and a book of purchase records. It was late on Saturday and he was preparing to leave so I tried not to take too much of his time and only asked to take a picture of the one page. He was most helpful and friendly even though it was late Saturday and he was putting things in his pickup to leave when I arrived. The contact info I have is: Brad Benefiel supervisor of Peterson Park, Riverside Cemetery Newton, Illinois 62448; Office Phone: 6-8-783-2173; cell: 618-783-9977.

I am glad your picture of the grave marker clearly showed the name. Mine only showed a couple letters.

Yes, my email is correct. It should be:

Good to hear from you!
