Bio and Links
I have been studying the genealogy of our family for over 30 years. My mother-in-law got me seriously interested in genealogy by giving me the book "History of the Hershey Family" by Scott Funk Hershey. The book traced the history of the Hershey family. She is listed in the book and it followed her direct line, as well as others, back to the 1600's. In addition to Hershey, our family includes the Kellogg, Corrie, Johnson, Nickerson, Cheney, Rees, Poppen and Albrecht families to name only a few, some famous and a couple infamous. We are connected to a lot of families buried in the Wabash Presbyterian Church Cemetery, where my mother-in-law is interred along with her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Other family members direct and indirect are interred in cemeteries located in Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland and Wabash counties in Illinois as well as in South Dakota, New York, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio and other states and countries.

Some of the information/obituaries I post on my memorials, or pass on to other contributors, may be found in the Lawrence County (IL) Public Library's genealogy department.

I am happy to transfer any memorials that are not a part of my family.

Arthur R Dorsett; FindAGrave 130088285
Would you please transfer Arthur and his first wife, Emma Jane (Dickinson) Dorsett (FindAGrave 130088268) to me. I grew up next door and they were surrogate grandparents since my grandparents lived so far away in Oklahoma. Arthur, Emma, and Florence never had children so we were their grandchildren living next door. I have entered second wife Florence in FindAGrave already but would like to have Arthur and Emma so I can give them proper biographies.

Go back to vincennes. To take photos.
If you had time you could contsct probase who has entered most memorials there. Again by adding by spreadsheet. Big mistake. He made thousands of errors.

I appreciate yout extensive work
With obits. I would contact him and ask for transfers. So your info can be added.

Others sent notes as he has 400,000 memorials. Too many are dupes. Linda. Thanks

RE: Couch/Courter edits
I am happy to add additional info! I think some people view suggestins/edits as a criticism instead of a bonus for the memorial.

I am processing edits and wish to thank you for the additional information! If you are a relative, I would be happy to transfer these individuals. (If related, I am a very distant family member.)

RE: Lee Roy Jordan ancestry / Wabash co. IL
Roberta,
I need to make a correction. The information I found was not from the book you referenced "History of the Families of Wabash County". It was from the book "The Combined History of Edwards, Lawrence, and Wabash Counties". You can read it on line.
I have since found the book you referenced at the Wabash County Historical Society's site. I will try to find a used one. It's a bit pricy at $58.

Regards
Dan
