Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lifelong resident of northeastern Illinois, I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and searching out headstones, photographing and posting them and trying to weave the links together of other family members in that cemetery or other ones nearby, so that other researchers can utilize my findings. My areas of particular interest are Lake County (where my family started off in this country), DuPage, Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties, and also Morgan and Scott counties in southern Illinois. I'll also sometimes go out of my "comfort zone" if it's something that looks intriguing.
I try to arrange my photo expeditions according to my schedule and by areas, and of course by weather conditions. I only claim photo requests that I can absolutely fulfill, and try to fulfill them as promptly as possible.
As always, if you'd like to copy a photo, ask permission first in order to let me know how and where it's going to be used, and credit my work. Other than that, I'm happy to help you out in whatever way possible, just contact me.

Vera Gordon memorial
Thank you for the updated info regarding Vera Gordon. I would like to transfer her memorial to you since you have some familial tie to her. That way you can add any further information that might be relevant.

RE: Memorial #87161869
Thank you so much for responding and researching.
Is there any way you can send me what you were looking at as far as obits, etc?

I have looked on genealogybank and have yet to find anything. Very interesting that the address you listed at 5840 N Marine is very close to where Gertrude was in 1920 with my Great Uncle Frank Shannon. They were at 1220 E 46th Street.
Granted, yes, it was 40 yrs apart. But one never knows we have to look at every single piece of evidence don't we?

Thank you again so very much.
And if you ever need anything from me in WA State I am happy to help.

Memorial #87161869
Hello, I am curious to know if you are related to William Schuyler Watrous of the above Memorial #. I am seeking information on his mother Ruth Eastman Watrous and possibly her sister Gertrude.

Thank you kindly for your time.
