This is all new to me! I became interested in my family geneology a few months ago when I was visiting my family back in Illinois. I traveled to Minonk, Illinois to visit my mothers grave in St. Patrick's Cemetery. From there, I decided to try and locate my grandparents gaves which are located at the North Side Cemetery in Minonk also. I was VERY surprised to find so many Uphoff graves! I was able to trace my roots back to my great-grandfather, Wait Uphoff; but that was as far as I could go in my search at the cemetery. I know that my decendents came to the United States in the 1850's and settled in Peoria, Illinois before moving to the Livingston County area in the 1870's. I have worked on my family tree which also includes my mother's side of the family. The Barr and Noel Family who were located in the Lasalle/Peru, Illinois area. I don't know much about this side of my family, So I will "practice" my research with the Uphoff's before attempting the Barr/Noel research. I hope to have the tree on line soon!
