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.

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

Adams/Richart Cemetery
I saw you loaded memorials for the Adams/Richart Cemetery. Do you by any chance happen to know where this cemetery is located?

RE: James Floyd Hardesty #126775525
You have some mistakes, most likely typo errors. The birth year, 1939, is not correct since he shows up age 9 in the 1940 US Census and graduated from Palestine High School in 1947.
from: US Veterans Gravesites, ca 1775-2006
James F Hardesty
Birth: 7 Jun 1930
Death: 5 Sep 1999
Cemetery: Palestine Cemetery
Cemetery address: Palestine, IL 62451
His mother's maiden name is NETHERY.
The funeral home is GOODWINE

If you don't want to make the changes, transfer him to me. I have several others of the HARDESTY family even though we are only shirt-tail inlaw related.

RE: Your brother's memorial
We must think alike. I tend to favor the military too.
Brothers Kim in the Army and Tim in the Navy, my sons went Marine and Coast Guard, a nephew went Marine, another nephew-West Point, dad-Navy, and ancestors in every conflict since King Phillips War. One of my Grandfathers, and some other family, were some of the first settlers killed by Indians in that one. The desire to stand up and fight for right must run in the blood.
Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

Richard and Nancy Hamler

I am certain I knew these people. I know they did not have children, but I thought they had an extended family. I may be able to upload a picture or two of Richard Hamler. He was a high school teacher at Southport and Tech a High Schools in Indianapolis. His wife was a homemaker, and I do not have a picture of her. I recently sold a small house they had built in I dianapolis. As a child, I often visited in that house that my parents eventually owned. I just think it is better to tell something about a person's life work, when possible. They had a farm of some sort in Illinois. Their practice was to shut down the Indianapolis home during summer school recess and live on the farm. Oil was discovered on the Illinois property after they retired. Do you know how to verify what I have written?

Ruel E. Nottingham & Margaret Ann Chady Nottingham
I'm happy to transfer the management of the Find A Grave memorials for Ruel E. Nottingham and Margaret Ann Chady Nottingham, his wife.

Margaret was one of my maternal grandmother's cousins via the McAllister family line - Frank Chady's 2nd wife and sister to his 1st wife, Mary Ann (Minnie) McAllister.

As a child, I loved visiting "the Chady girls," Margaret and Hazel (I don't recall Nina as clearly) during the summers with my grandmother (Elizabeth "Betsy" Barrington Knight) at their Long Lake, Chain O'Lakes, Waupaca, Wis. cottage.

If you wish, you can email me directly so we may share family tree info. My contact email is on my Find A Grave contributor profile page. I'm always happy to connect with another cousin.
