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.

Fern Miller

When I create my memorial for Mrs. Miller and linked her to her husband and parents, there were no earlier memorial for her. The only way I could not see your memorial is if you had her buried in another cemetery or you listed the cemetery as unknown. Per Find a grave rules, a unknown memorial although created earlier does not trump a memorial in the correct cemetery created later. There was another memorial created a day after yours, also listing the cemetery as unknown then changing to Lake View Cemetery later.

Bachmans at West Salem, IL
Hello Janice,

My name is Marshall. I am a 3rd-great-grandson of Fredrick and Christina G. (Michael) Bachman, who are buried at the Moravian Cemetery. I want to thank you first for creating all these memorials and taking such great photographs. I'm going to try to link Bachmans with all their children and will be submitting some edits. I hope you will be willing to accept my edits. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

RE: Ella Wiser #88062946
Hello again.
I think I made a mistake with Ella. I'm double checking her parents, as I'm not sure if Pound or Hattan is her maiden name. I'll keep you posted. I'm also going to delete the edits.

Hi Janice,
The info I submitted is for the same Ella Wiser. Sometimes alternate spellings are used for family names. Since all of the other family information matched, I submitted the request. I like to be as accurate as possible.

Pictures posted of Jones and Pedigo kids.
Charles Pedigo, and Leonard Jones who you posted pictures of were my mother's cousins. Her maiden name is Swise. I'm curious if you have any pictures of the Swises. Old pics of the Swise family are far and few between.

Rheta Tarr
My apologies, Jan.. When I put in her last name in the search her name didn't appear.. I will delete it.

They were my parents neighbors and friends...

Take care,
