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.

I finally figured out the Captcha. Underneath the suggestion box where you enter the obituary info, is a box to check now. I was so used to it not being there, I never noticed before. Thought you might want to know in case you get a message from someone else.

RE: Memorial # 117493200
Roberta, Thank you so much for adding the obit. I have done as you said for years, but now they've added something called you have to use the Captcha. Using the box doesn't work anymore like it used to. As soon as I hit "send" the captcha message pops up. I've sent 2 e-mails to Find A Grave trying to find out what they mean, but no response yet. Their help menu doesn't explain it either. So far, I've just sent to the person's e-mail, but you don't have one and you were kind enough to respond to the message board and I thank you.

I've tried to send you an obituary, but the system says I have to complete the "Captcha" which I can't figure out what that is. Could you please add the following obituary to the memorial? I don't know how else to ask.
Terre Haute (IN) Tribune-Star, Friday, March 26, 1999, page A2:

Jasonville -- Mary F. Barbee, 77, of Jasonville died at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, March 24, 1999, in Terre Haute Regional Hospital.

RE: Falconer
Hi Roberta,
I just wanted to let you know that I got your message and will transfer these. Today is a little crazy, but I'll do it by tomorrow night! Leo Falconer was a year older than I was when we were in school in Lake Preston. If you know him, tell him "Hi" from me!
