|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy for almost 40 years, starting with just wanting to know my ancestors' names and the years of their birth and death. It progresses from there, until finally, you want to know as much about your ancestors as possible. That includes knowing where their final resting place is so that you can complete their life story. I feel this spot is a very special place; either it is where they were when they died, or it is a place that meant something to them. It is a place to reflect on who that person was, and what they have passed down and shared with you. While some of your ancestors are nearer and dearer to your heart and don't require a special place to bring them to mind, others are not as well known, and being able to know and see where they are helps. Thank you, Find A Grave and all the wonderful volunteers, for helping people to connect!|

My husband and I walked through Bishop Hill Cemetery Friday looking for Karin's grave marker. We saw those of her parents and her brother and looked closely in those areas and didn't see hers. I checked the Bishop Hill Burial Records book, and the daughter Karin is not listed -- only Mrs. Karin Lundeen -- "90y4m29d, wife of Michael; nee: Svenson; b Wagbro, Norrala Parish." For Michael, record shows "born Ringa, Norrala, Helsingland, Sweden."

I did not know Aunt Hannah but I do remember meeting Aunt Carrie and Aunt Hattie who lived in Eastern Washington when I was a little girl. I believe in Yakima. John Edwin Cline, my father, was Grace Cline (Jenness) and Harold Hollister Cline's oldest son. Dad was born January 4, 1928 and died April 6,2009. I have one sister, Kathy Ann Peck-Nestell (Cline) who was born September 7, 1952 and lives in Lake Oswego, OR. My only brother, Jeffery Edwin Cline was born July 2, 1957 and lives on Orcas Island, WA. Last weekend my cousin, Jodi Hendrickson (Cline), her twin daughters and her granddaughter met at Bishop Hill. She is Russell Warren Cline's youngest daughter. We were joined by Lisa Adkisson (Schrodt) who is my cousin Christi's daughter and lives in Roseville, IL. Christi could not join us. All of the three sons have passed away but the next generation is still living. I can send you more information if you like.

I am the great-granddaughter of Duley Viola Jenness. My grandmother was Grace Duley Cline (Jenness) and my father was John Cline.
Obviously we are cousins. Of which of the children are you descended?

Thanks so much for adding the photo!
|Amy Walker||RE: Alexander Walker|
So sorry, Amy. I don't get on here as often as I used to, and just saw your message.
I have not had a chance to get down there, to take a photo. That is most likely his stone. I've been working on our genealogy, on and off, for several years now, and I have several dates for his birth, and death. What my sister and I assumed, since the stone seems to be from a much later date, is that possibly there was a small marker, meant to be temporary, that had incorrect, or no, dates. This stone was probably put in by a relative kind enough to place it.
I've tried to find a death certificate, to get the correct date, but no luck, yet. I'll keep trying, though!
Please let me know if you find any true dates, as well! Take care!
Wonder if you are somehow related? IF you are please contact me at Bvl54@aol.com

|Amy Walker||RE: Alexander Walker|
So sorry I just now found your message! Yes, I'm pretty sure this is the correct stone. My info for this Alexander is a bit sketchy on dates too.
My sister and I think that the stone was laid long after he died, as it looks too new to be from the 1850,s. Maybe a relative purchased it?
How far back have you researched this branch? Always love to hear others findings!
|Danna ||RE: Eleanor Jane Sutton Beall & Joseph Fleet Beall|
Good morning Amy,
I just finished transferring both Eleanor & Joseph's memorials to you for your additions & maintenance. I will still try to see what I can do about finding the rest of their children and parents to link.
Hope this helps :)

Thank you for the photos and for the information on Wesley. I am working on linking the rest of her family. Since you are much closer related to Eleanor if you would like I will transfer her memorial to you for you to maintain. Just let me know.
Thank you again,
