solomon Cox
Solomon Cox is buried in an unmarked grave in an abandoned cemetery in a ghost town: Grape Creek, IL NE of Danville, Vermilion Co, Ill.

His wife, Mary Ann Lyons is buried here. Her daughter Sarah Ellen Cox Colebaugh (buried in Chicago) lived on a farm on Fillmore. She laid an oval of small stones, and oval of Hens & Chickens and planted a rose bush. When she could physically no longer care for the grave, she had her grandson care for the grave. When he no longer could weed and trim the rosebush, I did.

One year when I arrived in the Spring, I found a new township supervisor had posted a dozen signs, one of which said NO flowers, and I found Mary Ann Lyons Cox's grave obliterated. So a small tombstone was put up, and I added her husband's name.

Anna Standart (Memorial# 79594379)
I made a mistake in August when I sent an edit request to link Anna(79594379) to Peter Standart (79594383) as a spouse. Peter was her father-in-law. Could you please disconnect them? I will send the correct edits thru the normal process. I apologize for the confusion. Thank you.

Are you connected to this family in Robinson Township Cemetery and/or Lake Forest Cemetery? Do you know how to find Elaine if she is still living? I am a distant cousin and I'm looking for other clues and family photos.

Thank you,

Thank you for the transfer of the memorial. I have already begun the updates, & will continue to work on connecting the various family members. These are very important to me as none of these gravesites have markers.

Dorothy and Herbert Hatfield Relative
Hi Cheryl, I'm Morgan Fitkin, and Dorothy Jane Hatfield was my grandmother's sister. I was wondering if you tie into the family or if you just took the pictures. Thank you for those, by the way, it was taking me ages to find Herbert's dates.

Middle initial of Oris Dent is G not C, see headstone pic. This coincides with my research on this man.

RE: 35319351 for Grizel Chapman
Thanks for the heads up. I corrected the date. I see there is a more recent photo added that makes the date much clearer, but my mistake. Thanks. Grizel Dennie Chapman is my 6th great grandmother.

RE: Orlando Payne - Mary Chapman
I apologize for the typo. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I know very well who Mary's parents were. I have concluded from reading her obit that she is most assuredly buried there with her sister and husband, and have accordingly added her. You can see a place for her name beneath his on the headstone. I believe it is the familiar story of the heirs not wishing to go to the considerable expense of having the headstone updated after the death of the second (in this case, third) person.

RE: Mrs Bert VanLente
No problem. I just put the photo up and noticed it looked like her first name was Exo, her maiden name. She is in the Exo lot.

I figured you were working from a list. I just sent corrections from the stone because I want the family to be able to find the memorial.

RE: Mary (Butler) Beckwith
I made the correction as you sent it, next time please send any corrections through the SAC (edit) button. I have 3 Mary Beckwiths so it took awhile to figure out which one you meant. The edit button will send the link directly. Thanks.

RADIKOPF, Ida Behm ~ Glen Haven Cemetery
Hello Cheryl,
Thank you for linking Ida to her husband Otto and parents; Charles #34578421 and Minna #34578417 Behm!

I'm aware of her other siblings who have memorials managed by k.mazor. I wrote mazor the same time that I did you. I haven't received a reply.

Herman Behm (#81560894)is also a child of Charles and Minna. Will you please link him. I will go to the edit option on his memorial. He also needs to be linked to his wife Frances #81560891.

My connection is through Emil Frederich 'Fred' Behm, another son of Charles and Minna. I have added to his memorial census records on the family.

Thank you for finding and obtaining the headstones for our family! My father Ed, the son of Emil, went back to Michigan for surgery when a young boy. No need for transfer's as I'm sure there are others who are more a direct line to Herman.

With Sincere Appreciation, Susan

RE: Tombstone
I had requested a photo and was told there was no tombstone. Thats why I requested that no tombstone be put on memorial.
