I'd like to take ownership of this grave and his son. My daughter-in-law is a granddaughter of Floyd whose wife Mildred just died.
Thanks

Searching for Harker-Cameron descendant
Dear One Foot in the Grave,

I'm looking for a great-granddaughter of this lady in your memorials:

Find A Grave Memorial# 22160971
Isabella A "Belle" Cameron Harker
Mar. 20, 1859-Jul. 9, 1938
Peoria County, Illinois

Tina WHITEHEAD (probably "Christina") posted queries on message boards about many of her ancestors, including Harkers & Camerons, until 2009-2010. The email address that she used at that time is no longer valid. I'm trying to share information with her about the JOHNSTONS & allied families of Bureau Co., Illinois and Rock Island Co., Illinois (originally from Ireland).

Have you ever been in contact with Tina, and if so, can you put us in touch with her?

Thanks so much for ANY help,
Annie

Mel, I don't know why he would have put them in Princeville unless he has a photo of their gravestones he's going by. They're not posted to the memorials (as you know). I guess I would just delete them since the obits both say Swan Lake.

Thomas E. Herridge
Their suggestion:
-------------------------
Son of Thomas E. Herridge and Matilda Ellen "Nellie/Etta" King. After his father died in 1894 his mother married Howard Simmons Edminster.

-------------------------

Where is the Thomas E. Herridge that died in 1894?
The only Thomas E. Herridge that I have in La Prairie died in 2002.

RE: Nellie B White 52786846
From the newspaper article, I figured out the wedding date was September 23, 1950.

Thank you!

I see that "Jesse" Potts is listed as "Jefferson" Potts on the above memorial. Jesse Potts is my husband's 3rd gr-grandfather. As you will note, his gravestone says "Jesse." I have yet to see any document that says "Jefferson" Potts. I submit that perhaps someone misread the double "s" as they were written as double "f" in earlier days.

My great-grandmother was Mary Wilhemena Kelly Lacock. Her parents were Anna and Benjamin Kelly who were buried in Trial Cemetery. How do I get pictures of their headstone or access to the Cemetery to take pictures? Vikki
