Mistake: Sorry.
I just saw it. It should be Springfield, IL not Springfield, MO.

Mastersons & Northcutts
I ordered these books through World Cat:

1. History of Christian County, Illinois with Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery and Biographical Sketches of Some of Its Prominent Men and Pioneers: 1763-1880. By Calvin Goudy. Edwardsville, IL; Brink, McDonough & Co.; 1880. P. 253, 254. Repository: Illinois State Library, 300 S. Second Street, Springfield, MO

2. History of Christian County, IL. Edited by Henry L. Fowkes, Munsell Publishing, Chicago, IL, 1918. P. 776. Repository: Midwest Genealogy Center, Mid-Continent Library, 3440 S. Lee's Summit Road, Independence, MO

3. "Pleasant View Township". History of Macon County, Illinois: 1763-1880. Brink, McDonough & Co., Philadelphia, reprinted 1972. Pp. 207-208. Repository: Arizona State Library, Phoenix, AZ

4. And there are a several trials that my ancestors (Whites; Fletchers) and A.D.Northcutt participated in as Andrew and my 4th great-grandfather, James Fletcher, were justices of the peace in Illinois. Also, a Masterson sued the Fletcher estate. The information was retrieved from Daniel Stowell's website: The Law Practice & Papers of Abraham Lincoln.org

5. There is a newspaper article published in the Summer of 1856 in which Martin White has written a letter to a Charles Hurst of Springfield, IL about the Pottawatomie Massacre in the Kansas territories. He mentions J. M. Masterson and Harrison Northcutt in it. One of the newspaper databases ought to have it. I don't remember which one I found it on -- ProQuest, Newspaperarchive, Gale group, or the Library of Congress.

Hope this helps in your research! Merry Christmas!

A. D. Northcutt
Andrew Duncan Northcutt (#39424068) was a neighbor to my 3rd and 4th great-grandparents in Christian County, IL, Martin (#50298335) & Kiturah Fletcher's (#50298934) White's parents. We found them listed together on the census records. I have some information on the Northcutts & Mastersons in Christian & Macon County I'd be happy to share if you are interested.

RE: Alvin Henry Kissick's marker
You are most welcome, it was my pleasure. Next to him was his wife and I have created a memorial for her as well. If you'd like management of hers as well, feel free to ask.

I'm glad I could be of help... Thought this was one of the most unusual markers that I have seen.

RE: Rouska requests
I was at the genealogy library today doing some research. I looked up the Rouskas and the records show no other cemetery and we have a half dozen or so. Perhaps the family kept the remains or scattered them. The babies were both quite small (premature) and there may not have been anything there after cremation.

Rouska requests
Sorry to say that these four people were cremated in this cemetery and then their ashes were returned to the funeral home. James and May were returned to Whiteside mortuary in Aberdeen, WA. Sydney and Skipper were returned to Elerding mortuary which is no longer in operation but whose records are at Whiteside mortuary. If you have difficulty getting these records from the mortuary then you can get them from the Grays Harbor Genealogy society which has copies too. Good luck!

RE: Wallingford headstones
You are welcome! I'm sorry I didn't get all of your requests filled. It was my first time in that cemetery, and I didn't have time to locate and photograph all 46 requests. However, I hope to get back over there again this fall and get the rest of the requests filled if no one else does it. David Wallingford may not have a marker, because his memorial states he is buried in the same area as Melissa, but I looked for him there and had no luck. However, I will check with the caretaker next time who has records that can confirm where David is located. Visher is probably in a newer part of the cemetery not near the others.

We had a fun time with this one. You'll have to work with Christine DiBari at springgrove.org on this one. This is what she and I concluded it should be. If you are family you can get the record changed on the spring grove side and then I'll change te memorial. If you are not family , there is very little I can do.

I wish I could be more helpful then that.

"Thank-you for the information. Did you mean I added a Carroll from Carter County?" No, I was talking off topic -- just about genealogy in general. My husband's Carrolls were from Carter County and I have an album on West Virginia Memories under Kentucky In-Laws.

RE: Calvin Phillips
I was unable to find his grave unfortunately. Of all the gravesites photographed, one large granite headstone had been toppled and I could not budge it to see the underside, and two other headstones have worn inscriptions and cant be identified.

Carrolls of Carter County, Ky.
My husband's paternal side of the family were Carrolls from Carter County. John Carroll and Nancy Damron. We went on a day trip to Carter County to try and find their graves. We were given wrong information and weren't successful. FYI: On Kentucky In-laws section of West Virginia Memories, I've scanned an album of pictures that I believe were taken in Carter County by Walter "Stubby" Carroll, probably in the early 1920s.

Tabitha Jane Luman Canterbury
In answer to your original question on Mrs. Canterbury's page, she was sometimes known as Tabitha. I have posted on the page the photo plus label that is in my possession. The memorial page owner has cropped out that information.

Here is Mrs. Canterbury's obituary:

Mrs. Jane Luman Canterberry died Friday, April 25, at the home of Capt. R.B. Leedy, this city, in the 82nd year of her age, after a long illness. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Methodist Church by Rev. J.L. West. Burial at Locust Cemetery near town.

For some years Mrs. Canterberry had been in poor health, necessitating the constant care of her children. Her husband died some time ago. She was a most consistent member of the Methodist Church, joining at Mt. Zion, Ohio in early girlhood. Her's was a noble life, worthy in every respect of emulation by those who knew her best and loved her most. She leave the following children to mourn her passing: Mrs. Perry Cales, Portsmouth, Oh., Mrs. George VanFleet, Huntington, WV., Mrs. George Carroll, Ashland, Ky., Mrs. A.F.Felts, Bellevue, Ky., and Mrs. James Newland, Mrs. R.B. Leedy, Mrs. John Duley and Jno Canterberry, of Grayson.

The funeral of Mrs. Jane Canterberry, who died April 25, 1919, will be held at the Methodist Church, Grayson, Ky., Sunday, April 27, at 2p.m.
Funeral services conducted by Rev. J.L.West and Rev. Paul L. Richardson.
Burial in Locust Cemetery.

I noticed that you created a memorial page for a Carter from Carroll County. That is the home county of "my" Carrolls
