Bio and Links
Bio Photo Blessings fellow researchers. I have been researching my family history for about one year now and to say that I am obssessed would be an understatement. I grew up not being able to complete my family tree beyond my grandparents on both sides. I have come a long way thanks to Ancestry.com and Findagrave.com and to the extended family members who have done so much before me. I love finding little tidbits about my ancestors, it helps me to feel like I know them. Photos and newspaper articles are a special treasure. I have just recently been looking into the cemeteries nearby and in photographing the headstones and memorials of my family members. Another researcher sent a photo of my dads headstone to me (I didn't even know there was one... LONG STORY) but I was so grateful I am willing to do the same for others. I love getting connected with other people researching the same family members and I have even found my moms long lost(35 yrs) brother as a result. I have just recently started creating memorials here so I am a novice but if I can help anyone i'm glad to do so. I love that I get to pass down what I have found to my daughters. I am trying to get them interested as well.

Happy searching to you all,
Kim

RE: Almasie requests
Hi, Kim:

Two of the "old-timers" here believe many of the Almasie family members are buried on the family homesite on Nelson Mtn. Road, so it may be that they were buried there. Are you in touch with family members or the current owners there?

Otherwise, maybe the grave markers were damaged or never placed. There are a number of names of people said to have been buried at the Deadwood Pioneer Cemetery for which there are no markers (about 2 dozen). We hope at some point to use ground-penetrating radar to locate unmarked graves there (but that would not tell us who is where... just to not try to bury anyone else there!).

If the family home place is no longer owned by family members, I may be able to tell you who owns it, as I work part-time for a realtor and have access to some cool online tools not available to the public. If you can tell me an address I could look it up.

Best of luck,
Peg Gerber,
Deadwood Pioneer Cemetery acting secretary

Hermanne Schultz
Hi! I just wanted you to know that there is a website with headstones on it for the Lutheran Cemetery in Danville. It is called www.VermilionCounty.info or maybe you can find it at VermilionCountyinfo/illinois.com

I was looking at it today at the library and found the headstone of Hermanne Schultz 1873-1951 and with him Martha L. Schultz 1877-1942. The name of the cemetery is Lutheran Cemetery not Danville Lutheran or Immanuel Lutheran or Trinity Lutheran.
I am trying to clear that up with the person who has the VermilionCountyinfo/illinois.com website.

I do not know for sure but these photos of headstones may be copyrighted since there is a symbol in each corner. But at least you could see what the headstone looks like. There are other Schultz's as well in the cemetery.
Have fun climbing your family tree.

Hi, I'm guessing my message provoked confusion. I appologize for this. I do not recall specifically what I wrote. We looked all over the cemetery for their headstones and with the dates 1977 for Arthur, 1990 for Juanita. Since they are newer graves (meaning post Korean War), we thought we would find them. Headstones between the depression and this war are hardest to find. Usually you can find headstones for someone who passed away in the 1950's to present. This cemetery has a lot of markers, more so than most cemeteries. Very few of them were where you could make out anything on them. We did not find any headstone or marker with either of their names on them. I hope this clears up any confusion.

Wayne E. Brincefield
Hi - just saw your request for a picture of the grave for Wayne Brincefield. He is listed on the Fairmount official record as not having a marker. So I put a picture on his page of the general area where he is buried. I just today completed taking pictures of all the graves that are readable at Fairmount and it has taken me months and months but I enjoyed it a lot. Hope this picture is o.k. with you. Ruth Smith

Photo Request for A. Brown
We posted a photo for A. Irene Brown at Happy Homestead Cemetery located at Lake Tahoe. Are you requesting a new photo to be taken? If so, I suggest you clarify your request. The seasons are hard on the markers and we tried to clean it with a soft cloth. We do not live there and take photos when visiting the area.
