I see in your photo requests you are asking for a pictures of Pembrooke Somerset Place 1833/1840 and Nathaniel Place 1796/1882. They are my great grand uncle and 2nd great grand uncle according to ancestry.com. I would be very interested in a picture also but I feel they do not exist. I have some old tin types of looks like civil war soldiers with no names that came from one of the Place family. They never will be identified as my older generation is gone and I wasn't interested when my Grandmother was alive.

I haven't done much with Find A Grave for quite a while and am having trouble finding Elizabeth Hamilton Taylor Place on this website. Are you sure I added this lady? I don't recall anyone by this name. Please give me more info and I'll look again.

After thinking about it last night I remember where I got it. The photo is in this book. I hope this helps.

No. I am not the owner. I believe that is public domain. I do not recall where I found it. It was probably in a book on the internet archive. I am just a fan of Jackson County Illinois Civil War soldiers. Good Luck with your research.

Sorry for the error in reporting the Cemetery for Stephen D Place. It has been a long time since I added anything to Find A Grave and I have in my records the print out of Illinois Civil War Detail Reports from the Illinois archives so I knew he was buried at Andersonville. But have no idea why I listed Georgia. If you find anything else out of order please let me know. How are you related to this line of the Place's. I am a descendant of Sidney Place 1807-1890 and he was the father of Stephen Decatur Place.

Actually, I have not been to this cemetery yet. I received this photo from a friend who had it in her collection of photos.
I hope to visit soon and take more photos.
I would never use chalk on a marker, since it is not water soluable, and could actually damage the stone,
When I want to bring out the letters, I use a soft make up brush and cornstarch, which just washes off when it rains.

Have you actually been to the Knob Prairie cemetery to see if he has a grave stone? Several of my ancestors in the Newell family are listed as being in unmarked graves there at Knob Prairie, but they have stones. I am still trying to think if there was some kind of connection between Orange Hamilton and a Newell. Maybe it will come to me some day.

I am not related to the Hamilton's, but I think the stories are interesting. I am always interested in the people who came to Jefferson County in the old days. As you may know, I was a Newell and they came to the Waltonville area in the mid 1800's. My half brother, Marion Newell married Helen Hamilton who was a daughter of Vincent Hamilton and Martha Hartley Hamilton. My husband is slightly related to the Hartley family. I have made memorials for Marion and Helen and they are buried at Knob Prairie cemetery. I do believe there is another connection and I am trying to remember. I think maybe Orange Hamilton's widow married a Newell but I will have to check it out.

I don't know why I said Samuel Rightnowar instead of Samuel Fairchild?

I was happy to transfer them to you and you are welcome to do whatever you wish with them. I will watch for the changes you make.

Ya if I am over there and remember, I will be sure to look for the Gilberts. I just haven't been over in that one in some time and it isn't one I go to often. On the other hand, it has been a while so perhaps before it gets too cold I could try and get over for a look.

|Terry Hartley||RE: Hamilton / Hartley Question|
Yes I am related to the Hamiltons through the Hartley line. I am transfering Walter and Vicent to you because your relationship to your G'Parents is closer then mine. I'm sure you will find Find A Grave a great asset.

I transferred Joseph and Loa to you too. Yes, I worked at the TB San. with Bernice. I was in the Nursing Dept. and she was in the Dietary Dept., so I didn't see a lot of her. We lived across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton for 10 years. They were a wonderful couple. Loved each other very much and they set a good example for everyone. I would transfer some more of the Fagan family to you if you wish, I am not related to them in any way. Rosemary

I am very happy to transfer this memorial to you. At one time I worked with Bernice. Also, at one time, we lived across the street from Bernice's parents in Waltonville. I would be happy to transfer Joseph and Lola Fagan to you too, if you wish. Rosemary
