Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.
Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.
P.S. I tried to look up his burial location at the local library, but I could not find his name in the list of burials for this cemetery.

Re: 125078217James Monroe Dillon, father of our subject, was also engaged in the lumber business for a number of years. making staves, hoop-poles, saw-logs, etc.. which he sold on the bank of the river or rafted down to St. Louis, Mo. During the later rears of his life he turned his attention to farming and made a great success of all agricultural pursuits. He passed away October 6, 1852.
The mother of him of whom we write was previous to her marriage 125078217 Miss Ellen Ferguson, and after the death of her first companion she became the wife of Henry Hefner. She died in Gilead Precinct in January, 1869. At her death 7451467 John came into possession of the homestead, he being the only son born to his parents.

Thank you for the history on Daniel Shinn Mr. Campbell. I ran across him in Josiah Shinn's book and was thrilled to see a headstone for him on findagrave. I have read up on them a bit. Daniel is my 4th cousin 5 x removed from two directions:
Daniel was 4th cousin to my 3rd great grandfather, Samuel Clark Jr. (parents Elizabeth Shinn and Samuel Clark Sr.) who came to Pike County with his parents in 1829.
He was 4th cousin to my 3rd great grandmother, Emma Shinn (m. Samuel Clark Jr/parents Isaiah and Nancy Robey Shinn) who came with her family to Pike County between 1829 and 1831.
(cousin marriage between Samuel Clark Jr and Emma Shinn...so not to cause confusion)
Both sides of my family are from Pike county also. My mom would be your direct 8th cousin thru this line. I'll see if I can access your ancestry page. I don't subscribe to it yet.

I do intend to delete this memorial but want to send some data to you before I do (so I won't forget). Also, I have microfilm of the Missouri Telegraph about 1853-1882, nearly complete even for the civil war. I can remember there were problems with two editors in Louisiana who were secesh. Long ago I wrote an article about this & about the loyal, much favored editor of the republican paper there. I think his name was Reid. Reid & my gg gf were rivals as my gf was secesh but was allowed to publish as long as he was on good behavior. His grandson, my grandfather was based at the Post Dispatch many years as chief advertising counsel for all Hearst papers so I imagine that, in some way our ancestors knew one another professionally.

|Lynn||RE: SpangCampbell Childen|
I would think you should start by contacting someone in charge of the cemetery to see what they say. I don't know if they have an office there or somewhere else. Since it's a church cemetery, you might try Indian Creek Church of Christ in Hamburg if there is no formal cemetery office.
The only other thing I can think of to suggest would be to contact someone at a local funeral home. I would think they might be able to give you information regarding the proper people to contact.

You're welcome for the help. I'll pass along your thanks to my friend as well.
I didn't realize that Annie Campbell was your great-grandmother. I'm glad I went through the Indian Creek records looking for Campbells who weren't on Find A Grave.
My cemetery book had a note by her name that said she was the wife of Harrison. That usually means it was on the stone when the cemetery was recorded for one of the Calhoun cemetery books published by the historical society. Even if that was the source, the headstone may no longer be there or in readable condition.
I would suggest that you put in a request for a photo of her stone at Indian Creek if you haven't already done that.
The date I put on Annie Campbell's memorial was from my cemetery book. Those dates are usually pretty accurate, but I have found mistakes. Of course, I know of many stones engraved with incorrect dates and/or spellings, too. At least it gives you a date to check.
Glad you were able to make some progress on your research.

|Lynn||RE: Regarding Churchmen and the Spangs|
I heard back from my friend, and he said his information says that a man named Harrison Porter Campbell was born 07 Nov 1858 and died 24 Nov 1910. It says that he was buried at Indian Creek near Hamburg.

|Lynn||RE: Needing help in Calhoun Cty.|
I remember writing to you some time ago. I know you were looking for various Campbells in Calhoun County, and I believe I suggested that you might look more at Indian Creek Cemetery since there are quite a few Campbells buried there.
This afternoon, I went through my Calhoun books and looked for any Campbells at Indian Creek who were not already on Find A Grave. I created memorials for them and transferred them to you in hopes that they might help you in your search.
In regard to your question about Churchman Cemetery, I looked through several reference books today, but found no mention of such a place. I then wrote to a good friend of mine who I consider to be an expert on the small cemeteries in Calhoun County, and he came up with some answers for you.
He said that Churchman Cemetery is located on the Billie Roth farm in Gotway Hollow just south of Michael, Illinois. It is located far up on the bluff and is extremely difficult to get to. The cemetery is reportedly very overgrown and there are only rock grave markers that do not have any names or dates on them.
My newest cemetery book had burials for Frank Spang (unknown birth--died 24 Dec 1890) and Sarah Spang (28 Jan 1855--04 Mar 1886) listed in "unknown cemetery." My friend happened to mention that Frank and Sarah Spang are buried at Churchman Cemetery.
It doesn't sound like a visit to Churchman Cemetery would be helpful even if one were able to find it, but at least this should help a little.

There is a Churchman Hollow in Calhoun County, so I would assume the cemetery is near there. The best person to ask would be Lynn Marie Vint...she's the Calhoun County Guru....her findagrave # is 47138895. Sorry I couldn't help you! Kathy

I did a little research and census show 1920 his first wife and she passed away in 1937. Death certificate list second wife and you said married 1940 so after first wife passed away.

My information is from his death certificate which you can click on to see. This would only mean he was married to Maud at time of his death so I do not know any further.

Laura is my double 3rd cousin. You might be interested: My gg grandfather published the Missouri Telegraph newspaper from Fulton, MO from 1852 - 1882 after which time his son, my g grandfather assumed control & published until 1912. It was a very fine paper, but with several columns of local news every week. I know my older cousins better than I know those of today! Only a few issues were not published during the civil war. Missouri being a border state, I know the sentiments of my gg grandfather (& everyone else in the county.)

Before I knew Laura had married a second time, I entered her in Valhalla. As I hadn't known of the marriage I didn't look for a Skaggs. I found your memorial today when I was looking for her children - she descends from Reuben Hatton, an early settler of Boone county, MO who was one of three brothers who fought in the Rev War. The graves of all three have been ID'd & marked by the DAR. Reuben Patton was a patriot all his long life. I have linked my memorial for Laura to your Charles Skaggs so you will be able to find her easily. As you will see, she is well linked & for this reason I ask that you consider letting stand the memorial I entered.
Thomas Noland Holt, Laura's husband of 39 years, was a cousin of Champ Clark's wife Genevieve Bennett.

My dad grew up in Dillon and we still have family there so we go up each year for a week. Dillon is a small town with not much to do so, time permitting, I try to go to the cemetery and take as many photographs as I can. I live north of Atlanta in the growing town of Woodstock. The traffic and congestion makes Dillon more and more attractive each day!
