Jean, I am working on the Sarah Tilford who was the first wife of John Conover. I have a "gut feeling" that she might have been the daughter of William Tilford and Lucinda Gilham who were also in Morgan County, Illinois at the same time Sarah was there.

RE: Kathryn Lucile Bowman
Just erasing messages and thought I would let you know the bushes are still there. Kay

Sarah Boord
Found your note on Sarah, wife of George Boord, and am having no luck on finding her maiden name. Would it be possible that you might have more information on her? She is my 3x great-grandmother, and I would so much like to know more about her. Please contact me at Thanks for any help you might be able to give me and also for all you have contributed in the field of genealogy.

RE: Bowman in Graceland
Glad to hear they contacted the cemetery. I keep checking to see if they are gone. I am taking pictures of the whole cemetery and so many stones under big bushes. I can crawl in under and get a picture of part of the stone sometimes but other times I can see it thru the bush but no way can get a picture. They should all be removed but one of the workmen told me as long as they are green, they won't let them remove them unless the family complains. Kay

RE: Kathryn Lucile Bowman
I was spelling Kathryn's name wrong so will check again with the correct spelling. But the cemetery is insisting that I.Irene Aitken is not buried there. Since there is a death date on her stone I am sure she is, do you know for sure?? Kay

Kathryn Lucile Bowman
I have been photographing Graceland cemetery and I am now in section O. I came to the Aitken stone and in front to the left is I. Irene Aitken and a large bush (ugly and big) To the right is a another large and ugly bush and as I have found numerous stones under these bushes, I decided to get on the ground and see if there was one. Kathryn's stone is completely covered with this ugly bush. I went to the office and they told me Irene was not buried there but I am certain she is. I will look for an obit in a day or two. Liston John Aiken is buried in that section and I feel certain he is under one of the bushes. I had Kathryn's name wrong so they could not find her but she is there. I told them they needed to cut those bushes out and they agreed it was disrepectful but cannot do anything without the family requesting it. I am out there so much I feel like family to all of them but not. So thought you might like to contact them since you are family and they will remove the bushes. Kay

RE: Peter Stewart unmarked grave

Sorry for the delay in responding. I contacted Mrs James Akin as to the location of the Peter's unmarked grave.

As for ordering a marker, the below is closest to the Brick Chapel Cemetery:

Century Concrete Inc
3725 W US Hwy 36
Bainbridge, IN 46105

I don't know anything of their prices but do see they have gravestone markers out front of their business. Good luck.

RE: David Stewart tombstone
Glad I could help. The name stuck out of the request list because my g g grandfather was Charles Stewart from either Ohio or Penn. He just showed up in Vermillion County Indiana 1860 Census. Death cert has father as James and mother as Elizabeth Moffet. All I know about my Stewart side.

I also transferred his infant daughter to you.
Thank you,

Poured cement
The marker is poured cement, w/the letters indented (not actually "carved"). I think it is the "standard" Moosehaven monument from that time period (newer ones have a higher profile, with "outie" letters; and there are even some carved granite ones in the newest section).
I found Elizabeth Bowmans grave in the far back corner, one of the oldest in the Mooosehaven Cemetery.
The whole cemetery is actually getting a face-lift. There is a new, gothic iron fence surrounding the Moosehaven section (it is actually part of Magnolia Cemetery) and also has a new brick entrance with very nice lettering...the gates and landscaping are due in w/in the next 6 months to a year (?) When it is all spruced up, I'll go back & get a good photo for the main listing for Moosehaven Cemetery.
Thanks again,

RE: Marjorie McKay
I received a reply from the cemetery secretary this morning. She is looking for the grave placements for me so that I can find them easily. Hopefully we'll have pictures of them in the next few days.
I'm so glad to help someone. Find a grave has been a wonderful asset.

Marjorie McKay
I went by to do a quick search. I plan to find Marjorie for you, but ran out of time this evening. I did find out that Shiloh cemetery was the original name of the college station cemetery. They have a historic marker at the front of the cemetery explaining the origin. I took a picture of the marker. It has a lot of interesting facts on it. I will send it to you if you like. I was able to read the information from my picture.
