Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started my family tree in Ancestry.Com in 2010 when my father passed away at age 83. The documents and pictures we found in my grandmother's trunk started my quest to "find out more about our family history". When I take pictures of grave sites for other Find A Grave members you may use those pictures as you wish. These pictures belong to the families of the deceased.

My own genealogical searches are:
Paternal Side:
Maternal Side:
Oliver (Oliveria)

On my wifes side:
Azarro (maternal)

Leasure (paternal)

Mark Sanford Tapley, Plato Center, IL
Thank you for the message your left regarding your search for Mark Tapley's grave. Your efforts to find and photograph it are much appreciated, even though the search was negative. Now I'll have to recheck the source to be sure that I have Mark's memorial in the correct cemetery and consider whether or not to delete the memorial.
Again, my sincere thanks.

RE: Eastman
Thank you so much for the photos of Catherine Starin Eastman and for creating the memorial for her husband, Oscar. Your caption for the wide shot really explains the situation well. Thanks for looking all around to find both of them. Your work is very much appreciated.

Re: Update on Lakewood status
Yesterday, I talked to Rick Ellis (847-931-6136), who I had mentioned on my previous comment. We had a nice discussion and he was not aware of this findagrave site and promised me that he would look into it.

I didn't mean to get this involved, but since I was coordinating with "Ace" for a couple of pictures, and wanted to assist him in getting them with less frustration, I seem to have.

Mr. Ellis mentioned that "Bluff City" is on a manual reporting system as is "Lakewood". So, this might be a wonderful Elgin-community project that could involve your city and it's fine volunteer resources of the library, school system, VFW, Boy and Girl Scouts . . . to name just a few. The children could also help out with gravesite maintenance by pulling weeds; while learning respect of their ancestors and community. How many children of today, actually visit gravesites with their parents and grandparents, and learn to just improve their ancestors's gravesite by pulling a few weeds. There seems to be a sad influence of death, monsters, vampires, and skulls in their current dress, books, TV programs, and movies . . . even in Saturday morning cartoons; that simply shows that they are not learning to keep these things in their proper perspective. Don't you think? What can be done to turn this from a "lose/lose" situation to a "win/win" one?

I do hope that you (and/or Ace, Orr, Rick) are giving this more thought of a quite worth-while Elgin-project.

Warm regards, Mari

Response from the City of Elgin . . .
City of Elgin-Government, City Services and Community News If you would like to call Rick Ellis (847-931-6136) or Kathy Zark (847-931-6135), they can discuss the progress they have made with digitizing the records for Bluff City Cemetery, which is city-owned and near Lakewood. The project began around 2006 and has been very comprehensive. Rick or Kathy would be able to offer additional insight as to what this type of undertaking requires.
