Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and old cemeteries! I am currently working on restoring an old, "abandoned" cemetery near Pleasant Hill in Pike county, Illinois with my father, Lonnie Robinson, and my good friend, Chris Harris. It is a shame to see the final resting places of the pioneers to this area covered in brush, briars and completely neglected. I need volunteers to help keep these cemeteries maintained and mowed.....

Many of the oldest gravestones have toppled or broken and I would like to get them standing proudly again. I'm learning the PROPER way through the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency cemetery preservation workshops. It's a lot of work, but it's definitely worth it.

I welcome any corrections, links, etc. to my memorials and I'm always willing to transfer memorials that aren't my kinfolk to an actual relative. I'm sure I've made many mistakes and I won't be offended if you point them out......:-)

If you appreciate seeing your ancestor's burial location, show your support by donating to that cemetery's maintenance fund. There are a few good folks who volunteer to keep the many old cemeteries in good shape by mowing, trimming trees, clearing brush, etc. and a donation toward their costs is a great way to show your support and appreciation! Without them, all the old cemeteries would disappear......(if you don't know where to send donations, please message me and I will find out for you)

Hello Kathy, you have taken pictures of my Dodge family stones in the Sapp Cemetery. May I please have your permission to use the pictures? Thank you for all you do and are doing. I appreciate what you have done for me and my ancestors. Kay

Thank you,
Thank you for the photo of my GrGr Uncle Holland Dodge's headstone. If he isn't kin to you would you transfer his memorial to me. A cousin and I are working on our family and as we get bits about family members we add it to the memorials. If you're kin may I ask how? My GrGr Grandmother was Mary Cornelia Dodge.

Hi Kathy,
You have a headstone photo on one of my memorials (D. Sterne #122742623) that I would like for you to add to the new spouse's memorial as well. You can link to it from D. Sterne. The photo is very good by the way. Thank you.

Hi Kathy, i hope I didn't offend you. I too have been getting a few emails where I've duplicated memorials. Some people respond and some don't. With the ones I've accidently duplicated, plus the many, many I keep finding, it's a shame Find A Grave doesn't have a more accurate count. Anyway, thanks for your contributions to the many memorials. I come from the Pruett line and enjoy seeing your great additions.LC
