Bio and Links
Have been researching my family history since the 1970's. Families include Stephens, Morgan, Anderson, Reining, Paul and Roegge (primarily in Cass & Morgan Counties, central Illinois); Bentler and Harris in Sangamon County, Illinois, and in the Chicago region the Hoppe and Jasmund families.

In 2014 I began creating memorials for persons not related to me, simply because as I walk through cemeteries searching for my own relatives, I photograph many graves. Often they turn out to be those I was searching for; sometimes they are not. If they're not already in FindAGrave, I add them. I will be happy to transfer any memorials that are not related to me.

I could just about shoot myself. I got a message from you, but in my junk mail for some reason. I inadvertently clicked on the wrong icon and deleted it. Can you please resend? Chuck Sechler

Lefler family
I see this note you put on Charles Lefler's Find-a-Grave entry: "Charles is also great-grandfather of Doris (Lefler) Tucker, a dear friend for whom I did some genealogy work." Charles Lefler's sister, Susan, was my great-great grandmother. I'd be curious to learn what you know about the Lefler family. Thank you!

Since you received this information from Dottie, is there a way to get her email address or give her mine - Florence is my grandfathers sister. Would love to talk with her.

Oh my gosh .. thank you so much. I have been scouring cemeteries about where she lived. Couldn't find anywhere that her husband was buried. I knew when he died - I have a copy of his obit but didn't tell me anything about where he is buried - or if he was cremated. She is family, and I am glad to finally give her a home. Thank you so much.

Thank you for the excellent photo of the headstone for Howard and Helen. It was especially helpful in verify their dates. I appreciate the time you took.
