Bio and Links
I have been doing family history research since completing a cub scout merit badge over 30 years ago. As a teen, I began walking and cycling through area cemeteries, noting familiar surnames and wondering if they were related. In high school, I helped a friend's grandmother work on her family history, as she had trouble reading what she had typed. This was "old school" genealogy - collecting and trading books, writing letters to genealogy societies, and contacting various relatives by telephone and mail. Times have changed!

I am also a licensed Amateur Radio operator. Licensed as KA9HTW in 1980 (Novice), upgrading to Advanced class in the spring of 1981. Later upgraded to Extra class, changing my call to WQ9T. I work as a journeyman electrician, and am a member of IBEW local 34, Peoria, for over 25 years. Former member UFCW. I have been married for over 22 years, with two children.

Adaline Curtis Ferrington
Hello, On the bio of Adaline Curtis Ferrington you tell of how she was taken to the Kankakee insane asylum. And you mention her death certificate. I am trying to find out more about Adaline. Do you happen to know why she was put into the asylum. Does the death certificate have any information about it. Do you have a copy of the death certificate. Any information that you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I took pictures of all the headstones at the Hiseville Cemetery in hope to full fill your photo request. I either some how missed his, because it wasn't in none of my photos.
I tried for ya, maybe some have better success than me.

I need to talk to you. You had been asking if there was any proof of George being William Key's son.
Need to talk, please write.

Transfer of Memorial
John Joseph Kobus, buried at Burlington Memorial, is my grandfather. If you wouldn't mind transferring his memorial to me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Lutie Soper
Hello Richard, wondering if you would consider transferring Lutie (#47988682) over to me? Lutie was my grandfather's brother.
With thanks, Andrea

You recently sent me an update for this burial. I have since added the obits for her and her husband. Also added her maiden name.

Abigail Mariah Carr Furr
In your memorial for Abigail Furr, you mentioned an obituary and a five-generation photograph taken a few years before her death. Do you have copies of those in your possession? If so, I'd love to have copies! If not, what was your source for that information? Thanks.

In this memorial, you stated that John Jones was the son of Benjamin and Leanna Jones but there are no memorials for either of these people that I can find. Can you tell me where this information came from? This John Jones is my 3x Great Grandfather. Thanks!
