I have been taking pictures of the stones, finding obits and linking the families for about 6 yrs now and love it. Im working on about 30 stones I took pictures of when the weather was nice here about 2 weeks ago.

Did you get the email?
Hi Patrick. Did you get the email I sent on Friday? It's got pictures of Milton Modie and Richard Leach Modie as attachments.

RE: Re: Modie family
Omigosh. Yes. I would love to see this picture of RL Modie and Milton Modie. I am certain it would help me identify some unknown people in my old family photos. Conversely, if they look like a match, I'll send you my pics to see if you agree that they are the same person. My email: sam_w_hughes at

Also, could you jog my memory - I don't remember the message that I left for your mom - was it awhile ago?

Three Greek Men at Greenwood
I've had the article about the deaths of these three men posted for some time at the Macon County website at The article is long, so I'll give you a summation of what happened at Jacksonville, IL. They worked for the Wabash railroad and they - along with a fourth man named Tony Planaros (or Plarenos - the article had both spellings) - were preparing a meal on an oil stove in their bunk car. They attempted to refill the empty tank without shutting off the stove and there was a terrible explosion. The article stated that a container of gasoline blew up. The door to the car was bolted shut from the inside and had to be forced open by workers outside. The three buried at Greenwood died that evening. Tony Planaros (Plarenos) managed to escape by breaking a small window and jumping out, but received severe burns and may not have survived, in the end.

If you'd like to have the complete article, I'll be happy to send it to you or you can visit the Macon Co. website.

Scott - Greenwood Cem.
Hello, my name is Gayle Jones and I'm the County Coordinator for Macon Co., IL, USGenWeb and I was perusing the Greenwood Cemetery listings at findagrave. com, where I'm also a member. I noticed you had one for an unknown Scott who died on 13 Jan 1920. I believe this to be Harriet Scott, who was b. in NC about 1845, according to the 1900 Macon County Census, which listed her age as 55, although her birth month and year was listed as Unknown. She was listed as a Black servant, widowed, and no one knew exactly when she was born. I looked for an obit for 1920 but have been unable to find one. The Illinois Archives search found a Harriet Scott who died on 13 Jan 1920.
