Military Burials in Knox County, IL


       As I was raised a patriot by father, Ormand "Andy" Anderson, who always had a flag flying everyday of the year;

 I am dedicating this & all linking pages to him.

Mr. Edd & Lona Olna Kelley Anderson & their son

& my father, "Andy" Ormand Edward Anderson

    I believe all down through the years from all the Wars we've had the same things have always been said about them and protests made.  But just think what or where we might be today if our ancestors had not had the American Revolutionary War?  Just imagine what other kind of life we might of had, the things we might not enjoy today because of it.

       I am a proud member of the Leffingwell Chapter of NSDAR in Knoxville, IL, which I joined through my Terpening ancestors on my mother's side of the family.  I have also found out I can get bars for my father's side of the family in which I really need to do more research on.  Someday when I have more time.  But I'm proud of our ancestors and what they have accomplished and I thank them for all they did for those of us today. 

     If you have any comments or want to add to these web pages as they will be in the making for sometime as it takes time to put all the information in one place or if you'd like to help in the creation of one feel free to email me. I will welcome one and all. Thanks!
