John Hopewell Memorial
Per your message regarding my memorial for John Hopewell, I left messages for the lady who duplicated my earlier memorial last year when she first contacted me. J. Hopewell is my direct ancestor.

Louisa Lisman
I'm sorry, but I have no information on her birthdate. It was probably an edit requested by someone else. All the info I have (Name, first & last, Date of death, aged at death) came from the Christian County, Illinois Cemetery Inscription, Volume IV, page 19.

RE: George Schaffer

It appears that your George Andrew Jack Schaffer is not the same as mine.

Your George stated consistently that he was born in Missouri on the 1910(Jackson Schaffer in Gill, Sullivan, Indiana), 1920( Andrew Schaffer in Terre Haute ward 3, Vigo, Indiana), and 1930 (Andrew J Schaffer in Terre Haute,Vigo, Indiana) federal census, whereas mine was born in Scott County, Iowa.

It is possible that your George Andrew Jack Schaffer is the son of George and Margaret (Drissel) Schaffer found in the 1880 federal census of Saint Louis, St Louis (Independent City), Missouri...

There appears to be an obituary for an Andrew J Schaffer with a date of August 23 1935, here

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Gill Family in Missouri
I have deleted the two graves posted in Missouri instead of Indiana. I did research and believed they were in Missouri. I am so glad you proved their exact location. I don't know how to delete Gill grave yard. I originally found the unmarked graves in the Historical records of Missouri and when checking did not find them posted. As you can see I have been a volunteer for over 13 years and try my hardest to prove each post and any of the connections with documentation. The record was not clear and so I proceeded in finding the family. Thanks for clearing that up. I appreciate fellow volunteers who work hard to make find a grave the excellent source it is. Thanks so much.

The Thrasher boys grew up with my grandfather in and around Sullivan County Indiana. In fact my grandfather was listed as a step-son of Martin M Thrasher. I don't know much about the Thrasher family, but recall the name was mentioned many times by my grandfather and my father.

Will be happy to transfer Thrasher to you - just let me know.

Hi Mr. J. E. Clerk:
The Shepherd Cemetery that I add the burial information and family is at Carlisle, Haddon Township, Sullivan Co. Indian . From Carlisle go south on 41, go to Cox Equipment Store on left past store you will see a sign under light pole for Shaker Prairie Church and Shepherd Cemetery, turn right onto 975 south C.R. go about 3 or 4 miles to an S curve, road turns into 125 C.R. go about 2 or 3 miles to a Bedford stone house on left S curve by house turns into 1050 South C.R. go about 3 miles to the Shaker Prairie Christian Church on left side, Shepherd Cemetery is by the church. The other Shepherd Cemetery was listed as Shepherd Cemetery at Oaktown, Knox Co. Indian. Then someone changed it to Shepherd Cemetery, between Oaktown and Carlisle. Don't know what it is called now. I e-mailed someone and told them we tool an hour worth of a goose chase trying to find the cemetery near Oaktown. I sent them the location the directions to the cemetery in Haddon Township, Sullivan Co. but did not get an answer. Hope you get better help then we did.

RE: Hannah Clerk/Fairmount
I will take her photo soon. Since there is a connection then I am sure she rests with the Fitch family as the cemetery records indicate.
There is no stone for her but I will photograph the lot.

Nancy Hancock, Boone cemetery

I made the update to Nancy Hancock's memorial and linked her to her husband's entry in Providence.

Nice to meet you, Cousin.

Sorry, fixed the error. Love the picture you posted also. Are you related?

Are you referring to Lois. Billy Joe was married before and had 2 sons by first wife.

Added by Mary Duffer Morgan on May 06, 2014 4:42 PM

Arnett's and Harrison's in Union
I'm not actually related to these people - I just took pictures of their headstones to fulfill a request from this site. But it's really neat to hear about them and the wonderful impact they had on other people's lives!

RE: Edwin Arnett's photo
Happy to help. His was hard to find…the older markers are a couple of inches deep and fill up with leaves in the fall.

My daughter was a classmate of a Michael Arnett here in Washington, IL. Does Edwin still have family in the area?

Thanks for the backstory, makes it worth finding these for people.

Best Regards, Rich
