Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got into FAG (adding and maintaining direct descendent memorials). Love the opportunity to work with others to link our loved ones together. FAG is a wonderful tool for associating family and making breakthroughs in researching those who have already gone on. I have had a great experience with each person I have been in contact with and love the mutual partnership I feel with so many that I do not know, but are bound by a common vision.

For me it goes without saying that any photos on memorials are my attempt to honor family. I am not looking for credit and wonder about those who do. It seems we should give and/or serve with no strings attached. I may be a novice and missing something but I do this for the posterity of those who have come before, the wider the circulation of this information (accurate and well documented) the better their memories are appropriately carried forward....

Blessings, Duane Warren FAG #47876044

RE: Timothy & Louva Warren
I figured you might know better than me. I was going by what was in Louva's obituary. I just sent a message to the person who took the headstone photo. Hopefully, she can shed some light on this.

Things are going well. I got my aunt to take a DNA test, which enabled me to figure out my maternal grandmother's biological father!

Timothy & Louva Warren
Hi Duane,

I am trying to straighten out the burial place for Timothy (122970186) and Louva (130510842). While both memorials have the same headstone photo, the memorials themselves are located in different cemeteries. Timothy (which you own) is in Anderson Cemetery in Vanderville and Louva is in Thomas Anderson Cemetery in Palmer.

Louva's obituary states that the Anderson Cemetery she is buried in is north of Palmer. The cemetery description for the one Timothy in states that it is halfway between Palmer and Taylorville. In doing some research, it appears these are two distinct and separate cemeteries.

You uploaded the headstone photo that is on Timothy's page, but it looks identical to the one on Louva's page. Did you take that photo or lift it from Louva's? Just trying to figure out which memorial has the cemetery correct.

Hi Duane,

You are welcome. Find A Grave's photo volunteer program is also one of my treats! I have been able to obtain evidence about members of my family via it also.

You can order his social security records and his military records. They should hold much information for him. If you have the death certificate, it should have his parents names on it.

Last message, I promise.

Andy Pyez Research
Andy's World War II enlistment records show that he was born in LaSalle, Ill. Perhaps you need to search just under the last name Pyrz in Ill. May be you will find him listed in a census with parents. Also, the name is spelled differently than one expects, so change the spelling and see if you can find more.

This lady is probably a sister to Andrew, perhaps this will help with your research. I added the name Chester. Good luck with your research.

Sources for info
I need source for middle name Chester, as well. I will hold another 5 days, then if I have not heard from you, I will simply decline the suggestion.

In order to make the link to parents, as you suggested. I will need a source for that information.

Many thanks,
