Re: Beezley/Glaze family
Jill - From the Bible:
Polly Beezley was married to John Glaze July 11, 1832. Polly Glaze died November 18, 1849, age 43. Sarah Glaze born April 11, 1836. J.H.(JOhn Homer) Richardson and Sarah Glaze married at Mantena, ILL. December 24, 1858 by Rev. Dr. Simington.

They were married December 26, 1858 by Isaac L. Simington. Justice of the Peace

John Glaze and Mary Beezley were married in Vermilion County, Illinois 27 August 1834. [I have copies of both of these mariages.]

Beezley can be spelled Beasley, Beesly,but in both the Bible and marriage record it is spelled Beezley. Polly was a commmon nickname for Mary. Polly/Mary was born in Ohio and I think she was a school teacher.

Gale Ion Harris wrote a three part, well researched article on the Glaze family which was published in the "The Genealogist"in 2002 and 2003 Volume 16, No 1 & 2, Volume 17, No. 1. He ends about where we should be able to hook on to his research. By the time they get to Ohio there are any number of Johns.

In 1850 I found Sally A. 14 living with Wm Beasey family in Momence, Will County (later Kankakee County).. I think this is Sarah Glaze.
Hope this is useful, Wilda

Re: Glaze/Beezley family
Jill - You don't seem to have much on Sarah Richardson's family. The Bible record I have I think came from Sarah's Bible which my grandmother, Luna, had inherited. When Alfred applied for Social Security the only record he had of his birth was the Bible. Grandma tore out that sheet and sent it to him. Clara Akers had this page and copied it for me. After John Akers died Clara's sisters placed her in a nursing home. While Alice was packing up Clara's things she found my letter asking about the Bible. She couldn't find that page although she had seen it in the past. When Ivan moved to Puyallup, Washington he moved grandma into a trailer on his property. When she was moved to a nursing home they found the trailer had leaked and the Bible was wet and mildewed. It was burned but not before Ivan saved one more page. I think that's where Dad go those other death dates. More later. Wilda

RE: Homer Richardson
Jill - I can't seem to get your e-mail to work. I think there's something wrong with my computer. I'm sure that John and Jane are John Homer's parents. You can find the two families together in Jasper County, Indiana in 1870.

Then there is this little item. "Mrs Jane Richardson returned last week from Missouri in rather poor health. She had been visiting her son, Homer." Kankakee Gazette, November 20, 1879

I've got more. Wilda

RE: Homer Richardson
Jill - I'm in a mess right now as its been a long time since I've worked on the Colliers and Richardsons. I was going through some files last night and found a letter my Dad wrote giving me some info on the family. He gave his grandfather as John Homer who died 14 January 1894 age 68, Verner Ulysses died 18 July 1893 age 25 and Frank Ernest died 18 April 1895. I have never found where these three are buried. They were living in the sand hills of Nebraska, working on the railroad through Nebraska into Montana. Verner was killed when he was struck by lightening while freighting and I think his horses were killed. Frank died from a carbuncle on the back of his neck. I'm not sure they were in Sheridan Nebraska when they died. I've been there and could not find a grave or an obit in the local paper. I have a copy of Homer and Sarah's marriage license and he gives his name as John H. Wilda

I saw your posting of a memorial for Truman L. Blackshear. If you get back out that way would it be possible to look and see if his parents are buried near him? They were Ocie and Velma Blackshear.
Thank you for posting Truman's memorial!

Thank you for finding James Hammers grave
Thank you so much for locating and photographing the headstone of my great-grandfather, James H. Hammers. My father never met his grandfather, and never knew where he was buried. He was very happy to see the nice little headstone, and know where it is located. He and I thank you!
