Louise Werkheiser contacted me as I had added James Henry Werkheiser in Find A Grave. Please check his memorial and she will explain the problem. I already changed it on James' memorial that he married not a Coomber but a Metz. A family book, and reversed photo started all the problems... thanks Roberta

You seem to have some measure of expertise, or at least first hand knowledge of some of the Jo Daviess cemeteries. I've been doing a bit of research on men of the 92nd Illinois Infantry, many of whom came from Jo Daviess. One young man is listed (#62251194) as being buried here, having died in 1865, and someone had a photo request so I went up there this past weekend but could not locate him. I am convinced that the death date provided, 21 June 1865, is actually the date he mustered out of service. I'm wondering if you have access to any old records from Clay Cemetery that might shed some more light. Thanks for any thoughts you might have!
