Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm retired. I've been doing genealogy since about 1991. Like many genealogists I enjoy walking through old cemeteries and wondering about the lives of those who are laid to rest below my feet.

Contact me, VIA THE EDIT TAB on a memorial, if I have entered info of a friend or loved one and there is an error to be fixed or additions to be made.

PLEASE USE THE TAB on the specific memorial to send or suggest corrections or ask questions.

Thank you.

Request for Walter Fisher
10/11 - his grave is still mounded. Would you kindly remove your request, and then put it back up in about a month? If you don't, you will probably get a picture as is right now. I will keep checking on it. Dee Winter

Hi! I'm doing my family Genealogy, and I came across your information. I am related thru Rose Christman who is my Great-Great Grandmother sister (Lillian Christmas) Rose is my Great -Great Aunt. I see your missing her death information Jan 30th 1951.....
Do you know where she is buried? and any information about why the Siblings stopped talking to each other,, Except for Elizabeth and Lillian. I'm going to the Newberry Library for research. I can keep in contact with you to share information. Look forward to your response.

RE: Hilda and Edwin Williams in Chicago Heights
I submit a lot of edits every day, especially with the last name of Williams. Right now I'm working deaths of people with the surname of Williams in Cook County, Illinois, working year by year.

For Edwin, you can see a transcription of his Cook County death certificate on the free FamilySearch website at:

His WWII draft registration shows Hilda as his contact person/next of kin and shows the same DOB as his death record.

His first wife was Eleanor or something similar; I have seen Eleanor, Elanor, Elnor, and Elene, among others. She was on the 1920 U.S. Census with Edwin but not the 1930 U.S. Census. Her first married name was Fishman, and her maiden name was Hand.

You can see Hilda's death record at:

RE: GMC Turpin
Source is the archive records at Miller Woodlawn, formerly Miller Reynolds Funeral Home. They performed his Funeral Service and did the cremation of his body. He was then turned over to the US Navy in Bremerton for Burial at Sea!

I personally cleaned his wife Anna Turpins grave at Ivy Green Cemetery. It is located in section 93 Plot number 23.

I am trying to get a Memorial marker for John Henry "Dick" Turpin, since Burial at sea occurred.

RE: Son of: George Harmon & Betty Ann.
It doesn't really matter I was just confused by your reply.

Originally you had sent me an update request regarding adding his parents to his memorial!

All I was trying to tell you was I would be glad to make the updates but I don't know where his parents are buried; however, if you would kindly send that information thru find a grave I would gladly make any updates that are needed.

Just forget it. If you decide you still need the update to be made please send me the request and the updates will be made.

Have a great day, Ann
