The following quote came from Sue Reed, who surveyed the Reiman Farm Cemetery before 1998 and placed this on the USGENWEB/Jackson County webpage on-line.
The burial plot of Rebecca Jane Jacobs Easterly is located: "Rt 4 to Sugar Hill Road. Kings Cemetery will be the first cemetery you pass; this unnamed cemetery is just around the bend, on the Reiman Farm outside Ava, Illinois. At this cemetery are the following: Rev Caleb W. Easterly, 1821-1893; Lewis A. Easterly, 1858-1919; and behind this one is a stone that reads, 'RJE'". This latter stone carries the initials of Rebecca Jane Easterly and wife of Caleb W. Easterly.
