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)

Balzer Schultz Headstone
Hi Kathy,
Thank you so much for posting the info/pics of Balser/Balzer Schultz and his wife Hannah! It's nice to finally see some definitive info on these two! May I copy the pics of the headstones/cenograph onto my personal family tree? They are 4th great grandparents, through their daughter Leah Schultz Long (so it makes sense they are buried in the Long family cemetery).
Thanks again very, very much!

Would you consider transferring management of Jane
Collins Findagrave site to me? I'm her lineal descendant--have her matrilinial dna and family stories about her which I'd like to add in a bio for her. I've had several relatives find me thru bios I've done on Findagrave in various families--then able to share family stories, photos, objects and at times family history for 500 years.

Thanks for considering. Sheila Robbins

RE: Stathem Family, Green Pond Cem.
Oh my gosh, Kathy, that is so kind of you! We've had dealings with contributors who refused to transfer direct relatives, including my husband's own father, to me. Makes me a bit leery of making a request sometimes. Thank you so much; you're one of the good ones :)
Will send requests for the Stathems.
Thank you again, dear. Have a wonderful day!

RE: Stathem Family, Green Pond Cem.
I may send you a request to transfer to Stathem memorials to my husband and me. His Mom was a Stathem, and she was tickled to see all the Stathem memorials at Find A Grave.
