Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started with Family History back in the 1970's with major progress made after joining a couple of years ago. I have found many related contacts including attending a few different family reunions. I started working with FAG in 2011 and it has been a great resource. I look forward to meeting new people on this site and working to improve memorial content.

I am happy to pass memorials to family members.

Update - September 2015 - Working on the Perry family.

Mary Ellen Ballinger
You are right. I have a copy of the death certificate and it was Thursday the 18th that she died. I have made the correction, the paper was wrong. Should I leave the obit as is or make a note that it was wrong?

RE: Ephraim Perry
My husband is a direct descendant of Mary Ellen Perry Ballinger, Ephraim's daughter. Which line are you from?

William Perry
Thank you for the info. His tombstone shows him to be 67, almost 68, at the time of his death. I entered the info as it was in the paper.

Ephraim Perry
Thank you for the info. I have entered it. He was my husband's great great grandfather. It was interesting to see that he was placed in another mausoleum while his was being built.

Youngs headstones @ Greenwood
Perry, check out the website below. It is a listing of the headstones at Greenwood Cemetery as recorded in 2001. There are headstones for many of the Youngs family. You will see the photos for Block S, Lot 124 pop up, as I and two other ladies have photographed that section.

Greenbank Cemetery
Hi Perry, I know you have been to this cemetery & was wondering if you could help me. I know the division of East & West. Just wondering the numbering of the stones. Do they start in the Southeast corner or..... Thanks Bev

Andrew J. & Cynthia N (Simpson) Kuykendall memorials
Hello, Perry,

I've been interested for some time in Cynthia and Andrew J. Kuydendall of Johnson County, IL, primarily because she is related to me through my maternal line. In doing research about them, one tragic thing I learned is that they had a total of 14 children, but lost at least 8 of them when the children were between the ages of 1 month and approximately 3 1/2 years of age.
The 1900 census states that Cynthia, then 82, said she had 5 living children remaining at that date of the 14 born to her & A.J. In addition, they raised a niece & nephew who lost their parents & took in other young children at one time.

If you are not related to them, would you consider transferring the maintenance of their memorials in Find-A-Grave to me? I plan to continue researching their lives as best as I can & to write an article about them for the Johnson County Genealogical and Historical newsletter.
