|What a great site. I found it a few years ago while researchig family and decided to add 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. If there is not a photo on the memorial you are interested in, just 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 include obituaries (in rare circumstances, I make exceptions), but will add excerpts; I will not include names of living persons.
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.
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
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).

You contacted me offline, and I would like to do the same but I don't see a link.
I have personal info to share regarding this memorial.
|Kathryn Sherry Engel||Hosea Edson Perkins|
Dear BobH , If you are so inclined, the above person is also a child of Hosea and Edith M. Perkins. His Find A Grave # is 115812000. This is verified in the History of Kane County. He is the most documented of the Perkins children. Thanks again. I do FAGs also. Kathryn
Do you have a picture of his stone.
|Kathryn Sherry Engel||Betsy M. Kellogg|
Dear Bob H. I cannot thank you enough. The gravestone picture is the exact link I needed and the connection to her parents is vital. As they say, you are the BOMB. Her husband lies in Iowa and I haven't found him yet, but this also connects them as a couple. Thank you, Kathryn
|Shel||Bertha Klemm Fletcher|
Sorry this took so long! This edit somehow got lost in the hundreds of spam emails I get. I took care of it. Thank you for letting me know the additional info!
When you have a moment, could you update Bertha's memorial:
maiden name Klemm
and link her to her parents:

Grave # 115811811
Dear Bobh, This is difficult to explain.
I have found two burial sites for the same ancestor. One is located in Bluff City Cemetery Elgin, Cook County Illinois with the birth and death dates of 1802 to 1870. The parents listed are the same as the other entry for Betsy M Perkins Kellogg. In that entry # 98448495, she is Elizabeth M Perkins Kellogg, with the birth and death dates of 1802 to 1865. The location of this burial is listed as unknown and the death is recorded as located in Geneva, Kane County. I suspect that your information is correct as you have an actual burial site. I am not sure how this can be resolved unless you have an actual document recording your information. She is my (how ever many greats) grandmother and she was married to Marquis de Lafayette Kellogg. This is important to me as I need documentation on this family line for proof for a lineage society. Please inform. Thank you, Kathryn
|Sheila White Hughes||RE: Walter S Yarwood|
Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
|Barbara Andresen||RE: Frieda McEwan|
No I don't have documentation, so this should probably not be entered. Had a fire a few years back and most of my doc's were lost. I'm working off scraps and memory at the moment. Frank Edward McEwan #110378331 was married 1st to Clara Kuehl born 1868 died 1915. His second wife was Rose Loeckner. Clara had a sister Frieda Kuehl. Sorry to have posted that edit, please scrape it. You're doing a wonderful job.
Thanks for the information and the pictures! I appreciate it.
|Jean Colson||RE: Alfred H Smith|
thanks for the information..
|Jean Colson||re: Helen E Fish Smith #81278639|
You very kindly furnished the photo for this record. Could you find out which Plot number is associated with Helen E. Fish Smith.
Her husband was Alfred H. Smith - as we can read from the Head stone...
I noticed that you have an Alfred H. Smith in your collection..could they be 'side by side' or in the same general plot?
Alfred was born in Elgin, Kane, Illinois.
So I'm just curious. Is the fact of an Alfred H. Smith in the cemetery just a co-incidence? Or are they next to each other?
