RE: Ritty Margaret Jordan Lane
I do understand however I would like to note that she was a Jordan (spelling of name on heading is incorrect) and who her parents were. This will assist anyone else who may be doing the extension connections on their families. I have her obit if you would like it.

Ritty Margaret Jordan Lane
You are truly UNDERSTOOD by all avid genealogists wanting to preserve their family histories and your service is greatly appreciated. With that said, I wonder if you would be so kind as to transfer the above person to me so I may include her Jordan history. She is the daughter of Curtis Jordan and Sarah Estes - both cousins 4x removed but an integral part of my Jordan and Estes family.
Thank you in advance.

Cindy Ford & Misty Flannigan listed my ancestors markers at the Sugar Camp Cemetery in Jefferson County, Illinois. 'Find a Grave' doesn't list them. Do you have any record of a Joshua Brake, Benjamin Franklin Brake and a Sophia Elizabeth Brake? If so, are there any photos? Thanks, Ron Brake of Eureka, MO.

For 10 years he held a position of great responsibility at the Chester Penitentiary where he was in charge of the farming interest of that institution. He also had charge of the purchase of cattle and other stock of the institution and saved the State of Illinois much money with his knowledge of the department with which he was connected.

Does anyone know where stillborn babies are buried in the Opdyke cem? My aunt had a baby that was buried there ,but there is no grave marker.Is there any way to find information?

Nancy Stull
I have entered Nancy Ann (Porter) Stull in Stull Cemetery as she is listed on a stone with her husband. I just found your entry in Richardson Hill. I presume she really is buried there as the Stull Cemetery stone gives no death dates. How do you handle duplicate stones and cemetery entries? I will abide by your wishes as I believe your memorial pre-dates mine. Just let me know the proper procedure.

I'll ask again as I find others I'd like to use. If you approve of my using these photos, please let me know how you would like to be credited, either with your name or your Find-a-Grave name, if different.

Thank you so much!

Charlotta Marsh
I was fascinated tonight to find your post and picture for Charlotta Marsh. The picture of the family with Charlotta and Thomas Marsh and others is fascinating -- do you have any more info about who the other people are? If you have a file with this picture, I would love to put it in my family tree and the album I'm making for my kids. Also, what happened between Charlotta and Thomas? Any idea? Did they divorce? Anything you can tell me would be much appreciated. Thank You!

Old Simmons Cemetery

Thanks so much for the great pictures from the Old Simmons/Old Panther Fork Cemetery. My grandparents lived in the house you can see from the cemetery...of course, it looked much different then with lots of trees, horses, dairy cows, etc. I love seeing the pictures and they have come in very handy for proving family genealogy.
