Bio and Links
Bio Photo Daughter of Cecil Wray Rogers and Evelyn Alice Kurtz Rogers.I was born in Pinckneyville IL in 1964,My Father now retired Captain with The United States Marine Corps was stationed in Okinawa, Japan upon my arrival only received a telegram "It's a Girl" for a few days he believed he had a daughter named Ginger. Much to his surprise my mother changed my name. I have lived at the Marine Corps Base, Camp LeJune, NC, back to Pinckneyville (a small southern town in IL) and then moved to Orlando, FL in 1971. When I married my husband Ray we moved to Apopka, FL and in 1989 I was blessed with the birth of my son Raymond (III). I truly enjoy family history.There are books and articles for my dad's side which have been extremely helpful, and I have been researching my mothers side for many years now and came across this site in 2010. It has been very helpful to me and if I can help anyone else out I will. I create the memorials to show respect to those who have gone before us and as a way to help maintain "Family History". I feel that memorials should be maintained by family, they will be able to honor them better than I, and I wish others would do the same in return. Even though I try my best to create the memorial as accurate as I can, I to make mistakes. Please send corrections and I will do my best to correct them as soon as possible.

At work I do a lot of archiving old photos. Some of my customers bring me hundreds of family photos dating back in the 1800's. I find it so fascinating. I tell them about this site so they may find some of their family members information and leave a note or just some "virtual"flowers.

**************** F.Y.I************ F.Y.I.*********
today October 17, 2012 I received a email from an angry "Lady" who threatened me for creating a memorial for her family member. If I create one and you would like me to remove it, threats are not needed. I feel I am very respectful of the departed and I KNOW many have appreciated the time we volunteers take to create and post memorials. I appreciate the information I have found about my families on Find A Grave, and I THANK EACH and everyone who volunteers!

Buried next to him is Florence Coffin Gillem, who I suspect is his wife, but I wasn't sure so I did not link them. Her memorial:

RE: Robert Rogers
Does the cemetery have the location of Robert Rogers? If so, could you add it to his Find A Grave memorial. I gather he has no headstone, just the temp. marker.

Walter Dunn

Please let me know.

Back in 2012 you added a burial marker for Ernest Knight. How can I find more information about this man? He is my Great Grandfather. Also, how can I go about getting his marked updated to reflect the correct name? His marker is misspelled.

Thank you,
Jason C Knight

RE: Thank You
Thanks Sharon for the quick response. Jimmie Lee Nelson "Rowell" were my Grandmother who passed away before I were born. I have been searching for her lot for years. I don't have any answers.

Thank you for your generosity. It is very time consuming documenting information and creating memorials. Those of us who research are extremely grateful to folks like you. God Bless!
