Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started taking pictures of headstones before we had the luxury of digital cameras---oh my, I am dating myself!!
As I have explored and stomped cemeteries, now with my digital camera, I am working to refine some initial photos. While stomping for family headstones, I have taken pictures of names that have been seen in my genealogy database. In many cases, I have made contact with distant relatives and always enjoy hearing from them.

I am quite happy to share the headstone pictures I have taken. Please feel free to use them at your disgression, as they are there for all to follow the links of their roots. HOWEVER--other photos I have added may not be used or copied without specific approval by the!

Elizabeth Gisler Death
Hi Kathy,

Elizabeth Gisler passed away May 3, 2015. Here is a copy of her obituary:

Elizabeth G. “Betty” Gisler, 97, of Peru passed away May 3, 2015, in Manor Court of Peru.
Celebrations of her life will be at 11 a.m. Thursday in First Congregational Church of Peru, with Pastor Dale Pederson officiating. Burial will be at Peru City Cemetery.
Visitation will be 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday in Hurst Funeral Home, La Salle. A luncheon will be served following the services in Morgan Hall.
Betty was born Nov. 9, 1917, in La Salle to William D. and Bertha (Blum) Ross. She married Delwin D. “Dick” Gisler on June 28, 1940, in First Congregational Church of Peru.
After graduating from La Salle-Peru Township High School in 1935, she worked in the office at Westclox. Starting in 1962 she worked at American Nickeloid Co. in Peru until her retirement.
Betty was a member of First Congregational Church of Peru, where she taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was involved in many church functions. She was a 50-year member and a Past Worthy Matron of the Order of Eastern Star. In her 30s, she began playing tennis again, entering for several years local and area tennis tournaments. Two of her most notable victories were the winning of the La Salle County Women’s Singles championship and later along with Leann Hahn, the Quad Cities Women’s Doubles championship. She and Dick enjoyed several years of square dancing, golf and traveling.
She is survived by one son, David (Jill) Gisler of Irving, Texas and one daughter, Sandra Starr of Peru; four granddaughters, Michelle Ashcraft of Houston, Texas, Donna Boothe of Houston, Kristen Lents of Keller, Texas and Erin Gisler of Bedford, Texas; four great-grandchildren, Shawna Boothe, John Delwin Ashcraft, Lauren Lents and Grant Lents.
She was preceded in death by her husband in 1985, an infant daughter, Ruth Ann, one brother, James Ross. Many years after Mr. Gisler’s death, she enjoyed a companionship with the late Leonard Twardowski.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to First Congregational Church of Peru or the charity of your choice.

Do you know who is are in the rest of the graves? I am looking for another wife I believe she would of been Christoph's first wife & the mother of my grandfather Conrad. Her name is Anna. I wonder if she is in grave 1 since Margaret is in grave 6. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it!

Thanks for getting back to me. I am so sorry to hear that Margaret has passed. I was so hoping to unite my aunts with a part of their childhood.
I heard back from the LaSalle Library today & they stated that the father of John & William Koenig (Christoph or Christopher) is buried in Oakwood cemetery also. I did make a memorial for him & his daughter Anna Martha who is buried in the same plot. There is also a Margaret who I believe to be a wife & a George Martin (son) also buried in the same plot. They didn't give me plot numbers though.
Do you know if John Koenig & William Koenig had different mothers? I believe Louise Kielter Koenig was married to William first then married the brother John after Williams death.
I'm sorry, I am flooding you will all these questions, just trying to make sense of the family & I thought maybe you would know because you manage the memorials.
Thanks for your help!

Lois Koenig Laio
Hi Kathy,

I am not sure if you are somehow related to the Koenig family, but I have been researching the maternal side of my family & I thank you for making my research a little easier by having the grave sights documented. I have posted a photo of the 3 Koenig sisters together on Lois memorial that my family had. I believe the girls are from L-R: Elizabeth "Betty", Margaret, & Lois. Do you know if Margaret is still living? My mother as well as my aunts would love to contact her if in fact she is, I believe she would be around 88 years old.
I have been searching for the burial sight of Christoph & Anna Koenig who are the parents of John Koenig. I didn't know if you had any idea of where they are. I contacted the LaSalle Library for information & is waiting to hear back from them. I would appreciate any additional information you may have.
Thank you!

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for adding Helen's link to her father's memorial. The link to her mother didn't take apparently.

Her mother's memorial is: #145291511.

Thanks again,
