2010, I am in the process of gathering the soldiers of the Civil War 85th ILLinois Infantry Regiment into virtual cemeteries.

Please email me if you know the resting place of any soldier I have not yet found.

September 2013. I have started a virtual cemetery for Mason County IL WWI Veterans.

2012 Virtual Cemetery for victims of the Chatsworth Train Wreck in my list virtual cemeteries.
2015 Virtual cemetery for victims of the Peoria 1881 Woolner Distillery Explosion

Please contact me if I enter incorrect info or links.

I enjoy taking and posting photos.

Cemetery walking involves planning, time, gas, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, assorted other bugs, dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, mud, dirt, snow, rain, dust, wind, sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, and BUCKETS of sweat.

I had to throw my lunch to a couple wild peacocks headed my way. Seems they have a fondness for egg salad.

I appreciate those folks who list their source when posting my photos to :)

Please take a look at this little guy's memorial .
I came across his interesting grave while randomly taking pictures in Springdale Cemetery.

I found Annie Story Mundt
Her last name is misspelled as Mandt - I sent the correction, but have no hope of it being corrected. Sorry I bothered you.

Annie Story Mundt
Beside Pearl Abbatt Story's stone at Springdale there is an Annie Story Mundt buried - I think it's her sister mentioned in your obituary of Pearl. I think she died in 1930, but I'm not (as yet) sure. I'll get back to you on this person.

Can I have him transferred to me as he is a 2x great uncle of mine. I just came back from visiting his grave and family. I added the OB that I found in the paper! My findagrave number is 46849125! Also can I have his wife, Amanada C, his daughter, Mary E. Summers and husband Henry Summers, his son, Frank W. White and his son, William C. White and wife and family?

John Weese- Smith Cemetery, Fulton County, Il
Thank you for transferring my great great grandfather's John Weese memorial #63595394. You really didn't have to transfer it and you are doing such a great job with all your memorials- and I think I was pretty much done updating it. But thank you for all your help on that one and also other relatives that are in your care. I do so appreciate it.. Thank you- Steve Grover
