Bio and Links
I started with Bush family information a few years ago when my cousin,Jim Bush,gave me my great grandparents (Bush) family bible.

Jim Died March 15, 2011 Memorial #66947928

In 2010 I decided to put my second cousin's, Dale Newton, work on the Newton family from Edgar County Illinois on the computer. He used a typewriter.

Dale died February 17, 2014 Memorial #125335998

Findagrave, and connecting with CCurry sent me off in all directions. Photographed and posted the balance of the Newton Cemetery in Edgar County Illinois. James and Jemima Thornton Newton are my great great grandparents.

In November of 2010 a post from Donna lead me to "discover" the Adams/Bush/Legg Cemetery. I found my Bush gg grandparents Bush there. Since then taking and posting pictures from many cemeteries has been my goal to help other with their ancestors.

Several small cemeteries in Edgar County Illinois and Vermillion County Indiana had not been detailed on findagrave so it was and continues to be a great adventure.

RE: Julia May Conner Thornton
John, Thank you so much for all you do. I appreciate the permission to use your photos. I am in the process of going through my grandmother's old album. I have and will continue to add Thornton and related name photos to any memorials I can connect to them. Hopefully, these will be of help to someone else.

Julia May Conner Thornton

Would you mind if I used your photo of Julia in my Ancestry online family tree? I am descended from William H Thornton (Brother of Daniel Thornton. We may have corresponded in the past (my apologies if that is the case) - but I am willing to share any information, photos, documents, etc that I have on this family.
