Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for many years, and love the ability of being able to preserve the monuments of those who came before us via Find-A-Grave. In my spare time I enjoy visting cemeteries in my local area of southern Illinois and also Perry Co. Missouri, and I try to photograph the entire cemetery and add the info to Find-A-Grave. I may not have the photos attached yet, but if I have added the memorial I probably have the picture also, so just request the photo and I will gladly add it. I try to get the memorials created first and add the photos later as time allows. I will also gladly update links and make corrections.

I was wondering are we related somehow? You have taken some of the same photos and have some of the same information that i have. I did a lot of this a while back. My other account is inactive for some reason but im working on having it reactivated. until then I will be adding things to this account.
I was just curious if that there was a connection somehow. But anyway you're doing a great job.

Hi there, I added the info for Henry and Anna, and transferred their memorials to you. I am not related. Thanks for the info!

husband of Ana Grass
We have looked for years for the grave of
Ana Grass and found it through your site.
Her grave is in the Concordia Lutheran cemetery
in Frohna, Mo. Have not found her husband
Christian Grass. He should be buried there also.
Could you help with this?
Thank you,
Marilyn Ramey

Martha MORGAN, Evergreen cemetery - Ava, IL
Hi Diane, the Find-A-Grave record for Martha MORGAN at Evergreen cemetery in Ava, IL erroneously shows her birth date as her death date. Her maiden name was Martha Ann COLLINS, and she was born 11 Aug 1855 in Cape Girardeau, MO. She died 29 Dec 1934 in Murphysboro, IL. She was married to George H. MORGAN (1857-1925). Her obituary is at

RE: Fischer
You're very welcome. I got a couple of pictures today and added them to Ms. Fischer's memorial.

All the best,

Elizabeth Fischer

I posted a photo of the marker for Elizabeth Fischer. I took this photo in 2013 prior to her passing so the year of death is not showing under her name.

At the moment there is snow covering the cemetery and most of the markers are flat to the ground, so would be covered in snow.

I go to this cemetery a couple of times a week as it is very close to my house. I think this marker is attached to a stone and I'm fairly certain I know where it is located. If it is visible, I will get another photo as soon as I can and will post it to her memorial and the memorial of her spouse. If it is not visible, I will get the photo as soon as I can find it. I thought you'd want the earlier photo on her memorial until I can get a more recent one.

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert
