RE: Pearl M Schauer
Sorry about getting 'pissy.' I was disappointed that it was rejected without even checking. Granted, there were no dates for Pearl. Glenn's sloppy work has caused me much grief over the years. He had the death date available to him when he entered that memorial but failed to include it. Pearl was born 1 Jul 1914 out of state. She died 24 Apr 1992 in Dakota County. She is buried next to Jane at the cemetery. You didn't know this before hand, but I have a complete dump of Acacia's database with access to way more information than the average bear. Again, I apologize for the attitude.

Find A Grave Memorial# 113930298

Regarding Find A Grave Memorial# 113930298 for Mabelle Edna Turner (née Miller), the date of death shown in the listing is not correct. The date shown is, in fact, the DOD for Mabel Turner (née Sprague), the wife of Ernest Turner. The death record for Mabel, wife of Ernest, can be found here:

RE: Benjamin Franklin Wetherholt, # 155971897
I will be nice.
Thomas Jefferson's WW1 Draft card filed in Chicago lists him as a barber, partially disabled and supporting his mother and sister.

1910, household 54, Bishop, Effingham, Illinois
Anna (incorrectly listed as Weatherholt), age 43, incorrectly listed as male, Divorced, born Illinois (should be Indiana) father born Illinois, (should be Ohio), mother born Illinois, (should be Ohio).
Daughter, Maude Weatherholt, age 6, Illinois
Son, Andrew Busby, age 16, (1894 Illinois.
Note; Andrew is later found in Chicago.
I do not know if he is a full or half brother to Thomas.
We should not overlook the Whitehurst and Neal families.
Hope this helps

RE: Alderman
Not meant to be personal only that much time has been spent on only my family. The other person obviously did not submit proof either. Trying to explain that there were several James Alderman in Bond Co at that time period. My GGGG James is buried at Lansing Cemetery and is the one married to both Catherine Warner and Martha Cantrell. One document is the marriage of his son William Perry Alderman. Would be happy to supply all documents I have if it would help clear this up. I had been to their grave sites years ago and when I saw the entry on your James I asked another contributor to go to Lansing and double verify for me his grave there. Which she did. I believe we have two separate James that someone supplied wrong info too. The one you have could be James Alderman brother for William P Alderman. Asking you to please help me get this one right. Many of us have worked many years on this line. If I am wrong I will delete my entry. I don't see how since I have visited his grave at Lansing.
