Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Everyone - I have been doing genealogy for 12 years-off/on. I found Find-A-Grave while doing research and think it a great indexing site for graves. And a great way to help families locate each other. I worked in the oil industries for about 22 years. Was a single mom raising two sons. I am biased but they turned out wonderful. Not only are they good looking but they have wonderful productive successful lives. Now I just recently married a wonderful retired marine and I do genealogy research. Happy Hunting Everyone - Gwen

Reminder for Lady Armstrong
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Charles Adams/Amelia Reed

I am searching Native American History in my tree. Amelia Reed was married to her second husband William Neal Thompson. Charles Adams was killed in Indian Territory as you have posted at your memorial. I have also found this information on

How do we know that Amelia Reed was Cherokee or Choctaw? Is there proof? I know an email was sent to Barbara Kimber-Durr by Billy Brooks.

Did the Adams have Native American lineage? I know that John William Adams married Julia Proffitt in the Indian Territory also.

Need a little help if you have any information. Thanks so much...

Gathings et al
Thank you so very much for all of the updated and recent information you have furnished on the Gathings Families, This is just great. I have collected alot of this info through the years, but have never gotten it all organized enough to record it in one place. It is greatly appreciated.
My son is a direct descendent of James Gathings and Martha Wall Covington Gathings by way of Cogdell and Clark. If I can help in any way, let me know.

RE: Jayce Robert Jankowsky-Goinz
He drowned in a bathtub. I chose not to put that on there as I didn't want it to be a constant reminder for his grandmother as she does visit this site.

Hi ~ I transfered her to you because I think people who are even distantly related or just plain know more about someone (who is not my own family or friend) should take care of them!

RE: Gathings at Covington
I am more than happy to turn this one over to you if you wish. We are not related. I thought it was a pretty stone. My husband's 4th great grandfather is buried there and we took a trip to Covington last year. It was really a wonderful old cemetery. So let me know, happy to transfer over to you.
Best regards, Judy
