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!

Zywica Parents
Kathy I am searching for the Zywica parents of John or Stanley?
My husband's family is related to Joanna Zywica Swientek .
I found a Wincenty awhile back & thought he was buried as father Zwick?
I know they both died in Michigan, but thought they were buried in La Salle Illinois.
I have Anastazia's (Nowak) communion certificate from St Hyacinths church.
Please contact me at if you have any thoughts or live near this church?

Hi Kathy,

Here is a copy of Esther Simmons obituary just in case you didn't have it. Thanks!


Esther M. Simmons, 93, formerly of Mendota and the Moline/Rock Island area, died at 11:05 a.m. Oct. 23, 2001, in Kahl Home in Davenport, Iowa.

Mrs. Simmons was born Aug. 19, 1908, in West Brooklyn to Jacob and Christine (Burkhardt) Michael. She married Hobart Simmons on Feb. 16, 1983, in Waukegan.

She attended St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Rock Island, was a former member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Moline and had been active at Holy Cross Catholic Church in her early years. She was a computer programmer with the Rock Island Arsenal for 10 years.

Which child of Joseph Senko?
The possible 3 daughters, who died in 1902 or before, or the child who lived only 2-3 months after Susie died. Or Mary Ann, who died in 1919, and might not be his daughter, perhaps, the daughter of his second wife?

They are. Thanks. One little slip and they have the wrong relatives. I usually verify before I hit the button. Guess I didn't this time
Thanks again
