Bio and Links
I found this great site a few years ago while researching family and decided to start adding local graves. Most entries are for Illinois cemeteries; mainly Bluff City in Elgin, but other cemeteries, too. If I have added a duplicate memorial, please let me know.

Most entries for deaths prior to 1995 are from grave photos. I am working to get all the photos uploaded, but this is a slow process (probably years). If there is not a photo on the memorial you are interested in, please ask (via edit/suggest a correction), and if I have a photo of that grave I will expedite the upload. Many memorials from 1995 and later are obituary based and there is a higher chance that I do not have a photo. A warning: my photography leaves something to be desired at times; if you have a better photo, please add it.

I do not generally include obituaries, but will add an appropriate synopsis; without the names of living persons. Please see the Find A Grave policies regarding this.

I am happy to add family link and extra information into memorials. I will generally attempt to confirm the information first, though.

If you would like a transfer, please request it through the Edit-Suggest a correction tab.

I take all the photos that I upload to the site. Pictures may be copied for personal, non-commercial purposes (including adding to Ancestry.com, if desired); a small credit would be appreciated (but not necessary).

Most photos include a geotag in the metadata.
This information can be mapped by uploading the photo to Jeffery's EXIF viewer at: http://regex.info/exif.cgi

Thank you, Bob for info on Mae, Yes it's been questionable about middle name of Morris or Maurice, His son, my grandpa signed his death certificate. My mother who passed recently has always said Maurice for both her grandfather Wesley M. and her father, Harry Maurice/Morris. I have his death certificate plus his picture on his page. I need to find birth certificate of Harry in Illinois if possible.
It is confusing also Wesley was called Weston when young If you go to Wesley M. Davenport memorial grave 64353327 if you look at headstone Mae is buried next to him at Bluff cemetery.

I HAVE TO THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GRACIOUS AND KIND. YOU ARE MY FRIEND ON FIND A GRAVE. YOU HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR SO MANY OF US AND ESPECIALLY THE DETAILS YOU GET INTO LIKE A MODERN DETECTIVE.
GOD BLESS YOU MY DEAR FRIEND! I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR GENEROSITY! Thank you for caring!
Warmest Regards, Marie
