|Bio and Links|
|I have been studying the genealogy of our family for over 30 years. My mother-in-law got me seriously interested in genealogy by giving me the book "History of the Hershey Family" by Scott Funk Hershey. The book traced the history of the Hershey family. She is listed in the book and it followed her direct line, as well as others, back to the 1600's. I am in the process of updating that book for my family. In addition to Hershey, our family includes the Kellogg, Corrie, Johnson, Nickerson, Cheney, Rees, Poppen and Albrecht families to name only a few, some famous and a couple infamous. We are connected to a lot of families buried in the Wabash Presbyterian Church Cemetery, where my mother-in-law is interred along with her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Other family members direct and indirect are interred in cemeteries located in Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland and Wabash counties in Illinois as well as in South Dakota, New York, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio and other states and countries.|
Some of the information/obituaries I post on my memorials, or pass on to other contributors, may be found in the Lawrence County (IL) Public Library's genealogy department.
I am happy to transfer any memorials that are not a part of my family.

|J Neese||Possible transfer of Memorial|
I am requesting the transfer of Lucille Neese Memorial #140688797. She is my husband's aunt.
I wondered if you knew if her husband Lyndle Neese was buried near her in the Rose Lawn Memory Gardfen in Bethalto, Madison Co., IL? He died in 1998.

You have an inscription noted on the memorial in Lawrenceville City Cemetery I requested a picture, but the person who answered my request cannot seem to find the stone---can you please advise if you put your information in from a publication or if you know where I can sent this person to take a photo? Thanks for your assistance.

|Opal Buchanan Nester||RE: Transfer of Melvin and Sarah Buchanan|
Thanks for your quick reply. I was able to change the death date for my Mother but unable to add the names of us other four children (you're correct I am one of nine). Also noticed "do not show pictures of cemetery on this site?" which was not there before and wonder why? Regretfully probably best to transfer back to you. Sorry -- thanks and God bless!

|Opal Buchanan Nester||Transfer of Melvin and Sarah Buchanan|
I did not intend to interfere with the managing of their sites, only wanted to add the names of their other children. Do not know how to do this but will be happy to do so with instruction. Thank you for all the information you have provided. Did not know until now where Brother Bob was buried. Thank you again.

Thank you. I probably sent a reply in the past, but do not recall in 2017.

|Benny Nabors||James Ruark|
Forgot one- also submitted a photo and edit for this subject in Moffett (Ruark) Cemetery, Lawrence Co., IL. The photo shows he was born Feb. 16 instead of July 16- THANKS!

Recently I posted a gravestone photo for the subject buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Bridgeport, IL. I also submitted an edit as the gravestone shows she died on Mar. 3, 1889 instead of March 8 which therefore changes her birthdate by a few days. Appreciate your help in editing to list the date as shown on the gravestone. And thank-you for all your hard work concerning the gravestones in the cemeteries & graveyards!!
|David K. Murray||Name Correction - re: Berlin Cemetery|
I noticed you created the entry for "E. Harold Myers", a child's grave located in Berlin Cemetery, just south of Oblong, IL. This was my uncle, the son of Frank and Flora Myers, who are buried adjacent to his grave and were my biological grandparents on my Mother's side.
His actual name, according to the spelling on his headstone, was "Esty Hearld Myers". Therefore, I wonder if you could correct the entry.
Thanks for your help!
|Dale O. Stillwell Jr.||Lt. Alsop|
Thank you for your quick response to our edit request. As always, thank you for your time and effort.
|Linda Y||RE: Memorials|
This is her profile. She is difficult. Refuses to add much when sending edits. Very old historical sourced info sent refuses.
This is her profile comment
PLEASE DO NOT ADD BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION OR OBITUARIES IN A VIRTUAL FLOWER per Find A Grave Guidelines. If I find any in this area, I'll notify the administrators and ask that they be removed.
