I would like to exchange genealogy information regarding individuals and families that have connections to the Melrose, Georgetown or Weller areas. I have a genealogy database of over 11,000 individuals, digital photos of all of the headstones in the associated cemetaries, and a large file of obituaries. I am interested in expanding the database and filling in blanks. Please contact me if you have information which you would like to share or would like to have information which I may have.

Best regards.

Surnames: O'Brien, Barron, Fitzgerald
I have checked in with you prior, but just looking over Monroe Co. site again. My Patrick Fitzgerald with wife Catherine Quilan, came to Monroe Co. in mid 1800's, living near Weller.
I have not found obit for Patrick, who died in 1892. Would you please check your records to see, if you might have it? I have been to Weller several time and have pix of stone.
Another family is the Barron, who settled in the Weller area.
Hannah Barron married the above Pat and Catherine's first son, Michael.
Hannah had three brothers, James, Sylvester (both which I have info on) and Nicholas. I have never found any info about this Nicholas Barron. Do you have an info on him?
Another family is the O'Brien-Patrick and Ellen Devane who are buried in St.Pats at Georgetown. Listed on his stone is
M.Devine O'Brien, brother of Patrick
born Parish of Dingle, Kerry Co., Ireland
died Sept. 1888 age 70 yrs.
Do you have any info on this M. Devine O'Brien?
I thought it was interesting his middle name was a variation of Patrick's wife maiden name?
Thanks,

I am interested in finding genealogy information on my husbands family. I have been unable to find out very little.
I was wondering if you would have any information on the family of Mike Paylo(Anna Argritz) or Joseph Kline(Anna Sickel) grandparents of my husband. John Kline(Veronica Paylo) husbands parents.
The information I have found is very limited.
Thank you for any information that you may have.
Sincerely

Hello!
I find it very interesting that you have acquired all of this information and congratulate you.
I have Georgetown roots. Crall, Healey, etc... Theodore Patrick Crall was my grandfather ... his dad Stephen Crall. Would like to know if there is a "baby" Crall in the Georgetown cemetary as none of those records are transcribed. Or even just a list or something from the cemetary. My gpas father was a coal miner.
You can also email me direct if you would like. danaut1@aol.com.
Thanks in advance

I was doing some research on the Paylo family and came across your obit of Veronica Joan Kline. I am sure that her father Mike Vernon Paylo is the brother of my grandfather George Paylo of Benld, Illinois. I remember as a child hearing about Grandpa Paylo's brother Mike from Iowa. His daughter Helen Ronchetti is a first cousin of my father John Paylo and she lived in Wilsonville, IL for many years. She passed away several years ago. I would like to hear from you.
Sincerely, Rosemarie Paylo Rhodes

I have responded with a direct e-mail which contains the limited amount of genealogy information that I have for the Kline and Paylo surnames.

Best regards.

I have reason to believe that Mike V. Paylo is the brother of my grandfather George Paylo. After reading Veronica Joan Paylo Kline's obit and seeing her sisters names, I feel like I have found a part of my family puzzle. I lived with my grandparents for two and a half years (1944-1947) and I remember seeing my grandfather's brother Mike from Iowa. I remember his wife being called Anna and all the siblings of Helen (Paylo) Ronchetti. My father was John J. Paylo and he often talked about his cousins from Iowa. He said they lived on a farm and he always wished he was a farmer. It must have rubbed off on me because I married an Illinois farmer.

I would love to hear from you.
