Owner of Zellers Tombstone Repair Monument Specialists, Ogle Co., IL.
Most of my families migrated to Ogle Co., IL. from Washington Co., MD. in the early 1840's, some came as early as 1836 most were part of the German Baptist Brethren. Surnames included on maternal and paternal sides include: Zeller, Zellers, Keedy, Furry, Maysilles, Wolfe, Tetlow, Stouffer, Kerns, Poffenberger, Cuplin, Bottorf, Barber, Funk, McKinley, Moore, Izer, Blecker, Long, Young, Lantz, Rench, Miller, Firey, Fiery, Haye, Hoffman, Traynor, Hill, Studebaker, Hoffman, etc... Most of my entries are from trips afar and local burials here in Ogle County, Illinois... Special Thanks to my cousin Peg Arnold who has been serving as a Editor of my entries, making many important additions and corrections. Thanks for the help Peg. Edits are being allowed by Findagrave, I will not be held responsible or get in the middle of family differences of information, please be advised a lot of edits are taking place that contributor has no idea if information is correct, only what is engraved in monuments themselves. . Thanks to anyone who added a photo to my entries. If you would like information edited in to a memorial I will be glad to do that for you. Exceptions will be made for family members who wish to have the memorials of their loved ones. Thank You.
I was unable to find an Edith Lehman in this cemetery (d. 1935) but I was able to find an Eda Lehman (b. 1856 d. 1935). Is it possible this memorial was misnamed? If so, I do have a photo of the old headstone and we can correct the memorial if this is in fact a discrepancy.
Phillip Sprecher and son Daniel I am descended from Phillip Sprecher and his son Daniel who both migrated to Ogle Co., IL, from Washington Co., MD. I need a pictures of both of their tombstones in Plainview Cemetery. Do you have them?
Peter Studebaker David, this is about memorial #32782779 Peter Studebaker, photo of headstone that you added to the memorial. Do you have a photo with complete view of the headstone? The one on the memorial only shows the top portion of it. Thanks - Bonnie Thompson Henricks

Daniel Ridenour/John Ridenour Hi David, I was updating info on Nancy & John Ridenour & all the info has him, John, dying in Mount Morris, Ogle, IL. Could he be buried where this monument is located? I'm kind of surprised there isn't a memorial page for him on Find A Grave. Any thoughts on if he is buried here? Hope all's well with you & yours, Carlene
