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.

Hi Roberta,

The Mount Carmel Library provided me with a number of obituaries but said that they did not have the microfilm for 1881. Would you happen to have a copy of Edson's obituary?

Hi, Then you most certainly are aware that the Marines are the greatest bunch of egotistical men you will ever meet. Their bond of history, tradition and blood will never be forgotten.

Albrecht Family
If you are a descendent of the Albrecht family, so am I. Caroline Albrecht Gruling was my second great grandmother. She was a sister to Carl Albrecht II of DeSmet, SD area.
I found a few photos of people from SD that were sent to my Grandma. One especially I don't know, but if I could have your email address...I could send it to you. And maybe you know who it is.
Paul Jacob was married to Katherine Gehm and I am related to both of them. Paul was a nephew to Caroline Albrecht's husband Leopold Gruling. And Katherine Gehm's mother was a niece to Caroline Albrecht Gruliing. I believe. Anyway...I think we are cousins then. My dad is still living and he remembers when the Albrecht Clan would come to the Gruling and Pruss farms in Central WI. And then also our Albrechts/Grulings would go to DeSmet.

Richard Hyatt Kitchell #52542059
I received your correction for his death place as being in Lawrenceville instead of Palestine. Since I am family (second cousin), I would like to know the source of your information to add to my family tree; I like to keep it documented. The newspaper in Terre Haute archive only had a funeral notice:

[2002 Mar 11, Page A3: Died Thursday. Services 10:30 a.m. CST today Goodwine Funeral Home].

and no death location or full obituary. Daddy had told me he died in Palestine but Richard may very well have been in a care facility in Lawrenceville while his home was still in Palestine. I know Daddy and Mom went to the funeral.

Copy of any death notice you have would be appreciated.
MARY ( Email is best place to send copy.

RE: Vincennes cemeteries
I agree. I would have wriiten to ask for the memorial he has been deleting his two
I contactef the cemetery office. He was upset as there are 4 cemerties. None go by Vincennes City Cemetery.

I am only trying to correct. As it is now you can see how many duplicates. I know you have done a lot of work

This happened to us a few years ago

Took me a long time to make corrections. Sorry
