Hope this finds you well.

Again I look to a satellite image of the old cemetery that had been "lost". The newest one is of this year! It may be easy to find because it appears that the tress have been removed in the general vicinity. If you're so inclined take a look at the Cravens Cemetery sat image here:

Just to the north you can see a county road marked "000n". This is the Wayne/White counties line. At the end of the gravel paved road to the west is where my grandparents lived. Not sure who lives there now. But just before you get to that homestead and just to the north of the road you can see an area cleared of trees that is in sort of the shape of Florida. This area used to be nothing but trees and rather thick at that. As a kid I used to squirrel hunt right there and there is a cemetery in the area just off the road a bit on the crest and side of a small hill. Maybe they found it while clearing trees? Or maybe they cleared it because there is a cemetery there? I don't know. But I hope they did not clear it to farm and thus obliterating it altogether. I think it would thrilling for someone to find it and record it for posterity.

Now, beyond the homestead the road continues unpaved. Almost to the end of that road and just to the north you will see another swath of trees almost rectangular in shape. There was a log cabin there, of which, it's remnants were practically completely gone when I was a child. The first time I was shown it by my grandfather was in 1968. When we returned in 1971 it was pretty much gone and very difficult to locate. There is also a very few graves in there with sandstone markers which most assuredly are gone or nearly gone by now. I don't remember the surname(s) but there were perhaps just 3-5 graves there. Sad.

I'm pretty sure you know of Antioch on county road 2550E. There used to be a church and one room school house there. My GF Floyd taught and my dad and his sisters went to school there when they were kids. I believe the buildings are gone now. There is a well maintained cemetery there as well. It is still in use I believe.

HAPPY HUNTING! I do appreciate all of your efforts and contributions. I wish there were more people like you and a one "SusieQ" that has contributed many fotos of headstones in area cemeteries.

Thanks for pointing this out. I deleted mine and suggested to the other one that cemetery records and death certificate list her as "Kathleen"

Would you please verify that I put the right pics with the right people. Wilson Ozment 118865994 and his wife Jennie 118866044. The stone doesn't match your records exactly. I will remove if I am wrong, just let me know. Thanks

Hello, I have made your requested changes to the Endicott memorials. Thank you!

When Resurrection opened it was initially referred to as the new Sts Peter and Paul, but the name is Resurrection. The old Sts P&P is still open for burials, too.

Added by Momstore on May 15, 2016 11:57 AM

Hi, I am familiar with both cemeteries as I live in the same city and have relatives in both. There are 3 Idas buried in St Louis, two in Sts P&P and one in Resurrection. The archdiocese website has the 3 Ida's listed and the death certificate, which I posted also has Ida's burial location in Sts P&P. Perhaps you are mixing up the three ladies?

I see Fern passed away last November. She and Albert were very nice people. Distant relatives of mine and Pollard family friends.

I see in her obit Peg Harris is still alive. She and her husband Ray were also distant relatives and friends of the Pollard family. I do remember something of Ray passing but cannot remember when that was.

This map shows the CRAVENS PLOT. The other I speak of is on road marked 000N. It's about 1/2 way toward the dead end and just maybe 20 years into the trees to the north. If you go to the house at the end of the road (my old grandparents place) the people living there now MIGHT be able to tell you. That is IF they even know one is there. The land it's on used to be owned by the Vaught family. Not sure if they still do. If they do I'm sure they know exactly where it is. I have not been there in decades so I'm of little help.

I see now that the CRAVENS one is. Many entries. I used to have many, many fotos of it before it was cleaned up. Not sure I still have them.

The other I have no idea what it was called. It's very old and even years ago was hard to find. I did find a stone by accident while squirrel hunting. The marker read "KENNEDY"...a female as I remember.

As I know the lore is Burnt Prairie, Il. was once known as "Liberty". Is the Liberty Cemetery the same as the Burnt Prairie Cemetery?

BTW...I also know of 2 others nearby that used to be completely overgrown. As a kid I would go to them and pull back all the honeysuckle and upright what stones I could.

One is right off I-64 on the road toward "Antioch Cemetery". It's known as the Craven Family Cemetery. The family has since cleaned it up and marked it.

The other is VERY old and difficult to find. But It is on the right side of the road on the dead end road that leads to the old Pollard farm.

If you don't know of these and you need sat images of the locations I can help with that. Let me know.

OH, and there is another that I'm not so sure can be found anymore. MIRACLE family cemetery. Last I saw it was sadly being trampled by hogs in the middle of a field.

Edit for James Oscar REDMAN
Oops! Sorry. You must have noticed I spelled "Reverend" incorrectly in my notice to you regarding your edit request. James' obituary said that he was the son of "Rev. and Mrs. A.R. REDMAN." and born in IN. He was one of ten children, survived only by his sister, Mrs. Joe PFISTER of Carmi.

The Illinois death notice for Rev. Absalom Rice REDMAN said that his occupation was minister. Please add the additional information and I will link your edits. There is another Absalom (J.) REDMAN (wife Serena) from Gibson County IN, and it would be easy to get them confused. I also see that their names are spelled either Absalom, Absolom or Absolum depending on the source. Thanks.
