Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in "paying it forward" started after I found a record of one of my ancestors on Find a Grave. This led me on an entirely new branch of genealogical discovery. I soon became a volunteer photo taker and then branched out to photographing entire cemeteries.

I think it is important to document history and it is unfortunate that many stones are so worn away that they can't be read, or there is other damage to the stone that makes the documentation of that person's history incomplete.

Find a Grave is an astounding phenomenon! Feel free to use photos I have taken. Please ask if you would like a memorial transferred to you for management or tell me if there is additional info I can add to the memorial. My goal is to improve accuracy and to give someone else that needed leg up in their genealogical research.

RE: Thanks!
I also took a fairly good look for Robert Kessler, since the Kesslers and Turleys (a family I'm working on) were related. No luck yet.

Pine Eden Cemetery
I am curious how well you know Pine Eden Cemetery and if you are able to find an interment there? I am looking for a couple of people that should be here, but they have not been entered on Find A Grave yet.

Could you move the photo from 9715750 to 53749680.
Might be a duplicate.

Jefferson Mallard
Not much more than what I had for Mary Mallard ...

1880 Census indicates that Jefferson V Mallard was:

- Born in North Carolina (as well as his parents) around 1822.
- Occupation: Blacksmith
- Lived in Brooklyn, Massac, IL
- Following were listed in the household:
Mary V. Mallard (age 48), Charley A. Mallard (age 14), Emma B. Mallard (age 11), Ann Netta Mallard (age 10), and Harriet E. Mallard (age 7)

1870 Census indicates that J. V. Mallard was:

- Born in NC around 1824
- Lived in Massac County, IL
- Following were listed in the household:
Mary Mallard (age 38), Charles A Mallard (age 3), Emma B Mallard (age 1), Elizabeth Halterman (age 23), Adam Edwards (age 60), William N. Townsley (age 17), Joseph Townsley (age 15)

1860 Census indicates that Jefferson B Mallard:

- same DOB and POB listed as above
- Lived in Newtown, Livingston, IL
- Following were listed in the household: Frances E Mallard (age 27), Mary J Mallard (age 4), Samuel Jennings (age 30)

Unfortunately, that was all I could find on Jefferson. Good luck in your search.

For Mary Mallard,

~born abt 1832 in Alabama

That is all I was able to find.
