Woodlawn Cem Photo Request
Hi. I am a Find A Grave volunteer and would be happy to take your requested tombstone photo(s) at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Urbana, Illinois. The problem is, the cemetery cannot release burial information to a volunteer. It involves the privacy act. Check the front page of the cemetery memorial to see their policy. If you can include the burial location, section, block, etc., then volunteers can get those photos for you.

Keith Erickson
David & Ellen Sims
I have checked the cemetery records and found a possible burial location for David but could not find Ellen. There is a Sims plot with a Claire and Charlie Sims in the middle. Records show that a couple of bodies are buried on each side of them but no names except that someone wrote in on one of the body locations, David Sims's name. Claire and Charlie have head stones but no other head stone are there. Would you like for me to post a picture of the area for them, if you feel confident that they are the two buried there?

Just look at paper work and it was the War of 1812. But some of the paperwork in incorrect. I will look into this and hopefully find the correct info. I have edited the dates to unknown at this time. Thank you. Joe

RE: Calvin Kimbrough
I am reading in the history of Edgar County book from 1897, that he died in 1833, and it also listed him in the Blackhawk War. There may be 2 Calvin Kimbrough, but this is the only one I am aware of. Do you still have the cemetery listing? and if so could it be scanned and emailed to me?

McCoy Family
I found your memorials while checking on John McCoy. My great grandfather was Sam McCoy from Monroe Co., IN.

His parents were John and Mary Ann McLary McCoy. John's parents were Cornelius and Ailcy Ann Stevens McCoy.

I remember Sam. I was 9 years old when he died. Great Grandpa was one of 7 children: Sarah Jane, Martha, Julia Ann, Sam, Malinda, Hugh and Lewis. I keep in contact with Lewis' daughter,Olive.

The whole Hatfield/McCoy feud is fascinating. Grandma said we were related to the feuding McCoys, but I haven't found a connection. Maybe it was wishful thinking. Actually, I think the McCoys populated several states making it difficult to figure out if we are indeed related.

Bob & Nancy Cannon
Just a heads up.....
Memorials are to be entered with the names as listed on the tombstone, according to Find a grave guidelines, with information about spouses in the bio section. The last few memorial changes, that you have sent, were for memorials that were created using the information taken off the tombstone. However, since there are no photos yet we have gone ahead and accepted the changes.

Hello Evelyn, My line comes from David Cusick and Elizabeth Keeler. Joseph and David were brothers. I believe they all came to Illinios at the same time.

Hi Evelyn,

Glad you called that typo to my attention! I must have been looking at one of the kids birth years, is my only explanation.

We are related! Anna & Hans Jacob Russell were my 5x great grandparents. Their daughter Rosanna Russell who married Christian Middlekauff is my 4x great grandparents. Which of their children do you descend from?

I have changed & added to her bio to help you & anybody else, too, that needs the info using info that I didn't have at the time I put her memorial on Find A Grave. I wish I could tell you the burial places for her parents, but don't have that info at this time.

Would be glad to hear from you again & I would share any info you need that I have.

Ebenezer & Ebenezer Lutheran Cemeteries
The following are buried at Ebenezer Lutheran Cemetery, which is not the same as Ebenezer Cemetery. They all have memorials there. (Note that Ebenezer Lutheran & Fall Creek Union are shown as the same cemetery on Find A Grave. This is incorrect, but would be impossible to correct at this point.)

James & Margaret Atwood

The death dates for James and Margaret Atwood are in a book called ATWOOD FAMILY RECORDS 1960-1961 by Mrs Charles Atwood. This book was on the internet at one time but is no longer. For some reason it starts with page 45 and continues thru page 102. If you wish me to copy it and sent it, please give me you mailing address

The Ancestor Hunter
Lydia Evans
Thanks for your query. Changes have been made to Lydia's husband John's memorial posting. I feel Lydia & John Evans were buried in the London Tract Church Cemetery.

In establishing memorials on findagrave for both the Welsh Tract & London Tract I used published church records, a 1908 cemetery census for the Newark burials and photographic censuses done for both cemeteries in about 2008. (Note the 1908 census showed blank lines for apparent burials where there was no marker.)

Note there are some later Evans that were buried in the Welsh Tract Baptist Church cemetery. Some of them have grave markers that can be seen for the findagrave memorials in that cemetery.

The London Tract church was formed out of the membership of the Newark Welsh Tract Baptist Church. Initially the Newark church records showed all of the events that pertained to the collective membership as being for the Welsh Tract Church.

Initially members would go to either church depending where they lived and on family circumstances. They could go to the London ... church service one Sunday and the next Sunday to the Welsh ... church.

After the London Tract church became it's own church there were still events that pertained to the London Tract ... shown in the Welsh Tract ... Church records.

Coming to this realization for me was not an immediate thing nor were my postings to findagrave. Opening the doors to the realization of things was easier for some than others. I missed changing John's mention of Lydia's burial.

This Evans gave land for the London Tract church in 1725. That fact, death dates and other repeated assessments make me feel confident that Lydia and other Evans in this family were buried in the London Tract Church burial grounds.

This is a long post, if you have questions get back to me.
