Hanna Gaffney/Emery
sorry I messed up on the last message.
I am trying to find where the information came from that Hanna Gaffney was in the Galva cemetery.
I have checked the internment records and do not find any Gaffney's there.
If this is my 3rd great aunt her married name was Emery and I do not find a Hanna Emery there either.
Thanks Alice

Bunker Hill Hartleys
Bob, thanks for posting the photo of George and Charolette Hartley's grave. I visited the cemetery and have photos, however just have not got them posted. Anyone looking for Hartleys you will find next to the Hartleys Eliza Russell. She is the daughter of George and Charolette. Also look at Sheffield Cemetery in Bureau co. There you will find Leroy Hartley, he is the Son of George and Charrolette.

Thanks so much for the photo. That's a very fresh looking tombstone for a man who has been dead 120 years.
I appreciate you giving the time and effort to take this picture for me. I was afraid that no one would get to it before winter sets in.
Thanks again,

Thank You
Hello! I just wanted to thank you for taking the pictures I requested for me. The Anderson's (Rae & Alta Anderson) were my Grandparents, and the Down's (Orvile and Ronald) were my Uncle and cousin. I live in Utah now and started to research my family tree and this really helps and I really appreciate this! Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the pictures of Nora & Erven Yocum's gravestones. I really appreciate your taking the time to get the photos and then post them. I've never been to the gravesite myself, but my father use to go every year with his aunt (daughter of Nora & Erven) to place flowers on the graves.

I'm curious about one thing. The surname (Yocum) was not on either stone. Is there a separate common stone that gives their surname?

Thanks again for your efforts.

Thank you so much for the photo of Harriet's grave marker in the Galva Cemetery. I so appreciate all of the photo volunteers. I live in Tucson, VERY far away from my area of interest in Illinois, so you provide such a valuable service. Plenty of us would be up a creek if it weren't for you. --Sheila

LuLu Foglesong
Thank you for taking the photo of LuLu Norma Foglesong in Galva cemetery. She was related to my mother's sister's husbands family...
I have a question-it looks like the photo is part of a double headstone. Her husband Archie is also buried there but didn't have a memorial on Find A Grave. Did you by any chance take a photo of the whole gravestone and if so could you e-mail me the photo.
Thanks so much as I won't be back in Illinois any time soon. (I was raised in Winfield IL but now live in AZ) Linda Rutz

Ferris Links
Bob & Mairby,
I linked Ben J. Ferris and his wife Mary Ferris, 2 of your memorials in the Oakland Cemetery, to their 5 children who are buried in the Carter Cemetery in Vermont. This was based on genealogy info supplied by Jim Ferris and info on their headstones. Ben & Mary immigrated to Illinois to be near some of their other children and were buried in the Oakland Cemetery while their 5 children who died young were buried back in Vermont. You can also link Ben J. to his parents, Benjamin & Patience, both of whom are buried in the Carter Cemetery in Monkton, Vermont with their grand-children.

Childs - Fernwood
I found a Childs stone in Fernwood today. Names are: Walter H. (1853-1905), Mary M. (1855-1919), Walter C. (1887-1930), and Clara M. (1885-1969). Let me know if you have a connection.

No problem! Actually it was the funniest thing. We arrived to the cemetery with a long list of names and we decided we could not do it without a map of the cemetery, it is huge. Then, I happened to look to my right and what do I see but the Dodamead grave! :) We got lucky :)

Childs family...
I was doing other research and have added death certificates to the memorials for your Philadelphia Childs at Mount Peace. I also found you a new person, a son of Josephine and Lewis, and am transferring him to you. Take good care have a fine day.
