RE: Marriage
I keep forgetting to tell you I have a copy of George & Mary Groshong Campbell's 'marriage license'; it is written on brown wrapping paper, along with a small note from her father, Samuel Groshong, giving permission. I think she was only 14 or so. I'd have to look at my records to see for sure. It is almost faded beyond reading and very delicate. Our clerk's office was very kind to take it out and let me photograph it.

Sure, I can transfer the memorial. Penny was a classmate of my wife and a counselor for a daughter but you can certainly have the memorial.

Geo and Polly Campbell Marriage
I just had a thought. Their marriage was the first in Ursa Township and maybe that was what was referred to in some of the articles. Maybe the writer didn't clarift between Township and County of Adams. Who knows.

There's no hurry on anything. I just gave that info for your benefit since I know you've had problems with that family line. Yes, there are several articles in books that state the marriage as the 1st and 2nd. I was surprised to find the earlier marriage too, because the local Campbell families claim George/Mary as the first in the info they've shared with me. It seems nit picky for 3 wks. It's neither here nor there to me, except to try to report the most correct info.

I was going through my gravestone pictures and ran across JP Russell's stone and that led to checking that I had uploaded it; then checked his mom and dad's. I always enjoy reading obits or info that has been posted. I can learn a lot about our area and families from them.

I do keep your family name in mind when going through documents or pictures. Have a good day. Rosie II

I'm sorry, you certainly misunderstood; it is not offending to me. The court house records show David Ray and Rachel Thomas married on 7.23.1825, which is 3 weeks before George and Mary were married on 8.18.1825. If you have other documentation, I'd appreciate a copy or such, as I'm including that information in research on the New Providence Cemetery and Old Stone Church that I'm working on. Anything you share will be much appreciated.

I too, have seen George/Mary's marriage listed as the first and second in Adams Co. That's why I went to the court house records. Thank you. Rosie II

Thank you for the information on James and Malinda. I already have all of that information in my tree. It's their parents where I have run into a brick wall. Is there any documentation to suggest that John Winner and Hester Mason Winner had a son named James?

John and Hester Ann Mason Winner
I'm trying to research my Winner family, but am stuck on my third great grandfather. I stumbled across the information you have on the above mentioned Winner, and am wondering if there is any documentation indicating another son named James A, born in 1813, and married to Malinda Wilkinson/Wilkenson/Wilkerson?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm really stuck.

Thank you, Annette

I think it must have been 42745349. You wanted the mother removed but I think it is correct the way it is. Kay

I'm new to find-a-grave as a member (only 8 days in)

I'd be honored to have Grandma's memorial transferred to me - but again I'm new to this system. Not sure how to get her data to you - I have four pages scanned and can e-mail them to you - or however the information gets onto her memorial. One of her daughters (still living) has a headstone by her Elizabeth (Kinman) Topper (we call her Libby). A grand daughter and daughter-in-law are also buried at New Providence. Grandma has a few other siblings buried at New Providence as well. I just got her sister, Ruby (Sparrow) Maas added to Calvary Cemetery in Quincy, Il and liked to the parents.

I've covered New Providence cemetery several times when I've been "back home" and need to go through the pictures and get more people added to New Providence and other cemeteries in the area.

Pearl and my grandpa McCants had three other children who died in infancy. Two of the sons are listed as being buried at Camp Creek Cemetery (McDonough Co. IL) where Grandpa McCants is buried - at least in the cemetery book but Mom (Wanda McCants Gooding) thinks they are buried at Denson Cemetery at Ursa. Years back, grandma and her sister Ruby found the cemetery before it had been cleaned up (was in the middle of a corn field). I've been to Denson and there are no headstones. My uncle Bud (son of Pearl) says he took Grandma to Denson once to visit the babies graves. I'd like to find out where they are actually buried and make note of this. Grandpa McCants died when mom was about three years of age - so she doesn't remember much about him. How sad.

Just never enough time to get everything done as soon as I'd like to.

The find-a-grave site is a wonderful way to make sure as many people as possible are memorialized for generations to come!

I see you have the info for Pearl at New Providence Cemetery (Adams County, Ill). I have her obituary if you would like to add this to her page. Pearl was my grandma and an absolutely wonderful lady and role mode. Her words of wisdom are with me today and often passed down to my kids and grandkids. My parents are Wayne Gooding and Wanda Lee McCants.

Thanks for all your work!

Reply to Your Letter..... :)
Dear Tree Leaf, Thanks for Your lovely letter. I would be Happy to transfer any McCants memorial(s) to You as I know that each of them would be in your loving hands :) I want to also "Thank-You" for mentioning the 2 poems that are on my profile page. I am So Glad that You also Enjoy them. They both touched my heart in separate ways & I decided that my profile page was the Perfect place for them to be. I wanted to pass this little story along to You also...when I first read your 'Tree Leaf' name I was very much jolted in surprise! When I first started on Find A Grave, my Aunt & I decided that we wanted to place the inhabitants in the little country cemetery surrounded by my family farm onto this website. I have spent many hours in this cemetery both as a child & as an adult. While putting these inhabitants onto Find A Grave, I ran across a man whose name was Green Butterfield, but his nickname was 'Tree or Leaf', or 'Tree Leaf' . So when I first received a message from you, it brought back memories of working on this gentleman's memorial. I think it was a bit of deja vu for me & I thought that You might also enjoy this little bit of reminisce on my part. In the event that You would like to see this memorial, it is Find A Grave # 73943431. Have a Blessed Day & take some Time for Yourself. I firmly believe that We spend So much time 'Doing things' that We don't spend Enough time 'Enjoying Things' ! Your Find a Grave Friend, Skeety # 47532462
