Bio and Links
Born and raised in Contra Costa County, California, my dad was raised locally in Vallejo, while my mom moved about the country with her family. From both my dad and my maternal grandfather, I inherited an enduring interest in family history, and love nothing better than an afternoon tramping the cemetery or hunting through microfilms in the archives. As a young bride, I began researching my husband's family, particularly his mother's family, and never stopped. With my own roots in California, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Missouri, as well as Scotland,Ireland, and Wales, and my husband's Illinois, Iowa, New Hampshire, Germany, Ireland, England and Sweden roots, it's been a journey of discovery! A professional in the health insurance business, I look forward to the day when I can happily research into my retirement!

There are only a few stones left in this cemetery. It is literally in the middle of a field. I tromped into it several years ago once harvest was over but there wasn't much left.
The information I have posted was 2nd hand from a previous person's walk-through. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Mary Shaffer Sisson picture
Hi, me again! My mom just loves your picture of Mary Shaffer Sisson. But the version on the website is too low a resolution to print in a form to frame. Would it be possible for you to scan that at a higher resolution and send it to me? My email is and it will accept files up to 2 MB. Thank you in advance.

RE: Harriet Rogers
Hi Kelly,
I'm the County Coordinator for the DeWitt County, Illinois, ILGenWeb page, so I often contribute obituaries and information to FindaGrave. Sorry, but I'm not related to the Dickey family. Everything I know about them is on the website (, so go there and put the name Dickey in the search box. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Sisson photos
Hi! I am, I suppose, a distant cousin, descended directly from Henry B. Sisson, son George Marion Sisson, son George W. Sisson, Elizabeth Sisson (my grandmother.) I found your photos on and wondered where the photos of Henry B. and Mary Shaffer Sisson had originated. I loved them!

We have done a ton of research on this family and would be interested in how your line connects. Thanks!

Walter & Kiest families
Do you want to manage the Walter & Kiest memorials at North Northfield Cemetery in Northbook IL? If so I will transfer them to you. I started adding links then thought perhaps you would rather do it.

Walter, Kiest & Muhlke are pioneer families in our area! To whom are you related?
