Bio and Links
I am a recently retired school teacher. I've been doing genealogy for the past 30 years. I recently joined the Find a Grave website.

I have completed photographing and uploading all the stones from the Little Rock Township Cemetery in Plano, Illinois. I still have about 10 pictures of very old faded stones that I will use the burial index to identify, but that project will wait until spring. If you wish any of the entries transfered to you, please email me.

The Griswold Cemetery south of Plano has now been completed. There are a number of unreadable stones in the cemetery. I have tried to identify them using an early reading of the cemetery, so that is why some stones may be hard to read.

Fowler Grove Cemetery north of Plano has been completed.

Elmwood Cemetery is Yorkville is totally uploaded, thanks to some assistance with some of the stones.

Working on Pratt's Oak Law and Oak Ridge in Sandwich. Pratt's has a great many partially buried stones and who knows how many totally buried.

#72935369 again
Henry Clay's marriage record names his wife as Eliza Jane Perkins. The photo on Henry's memorial is probably that of her grave. The memorial for her at #72934448 lists her only as Eliza.

Find A Grave Memorial# 72935369
Hi, Anne. Please check the photo you've posted on memorial 72935369. Unless I'm misreading it, it appears to be on the wrong memorial. It's such a great photo, but it looks to be for someone named Jane, and it's posted on the memorial of Henry Graves. My apologies if I've misunderstood. :-)

William Hunter and Janet Key
Hello Anne,
Would it be possible to use a photo of the memorial to William Hunter and Janet Key in an article I am writing about the Hunter family for my web-site about the local history of the parish of New Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. William was born at Polqhuirter farm , New Cumnock on 13 Dec 1795.

I hope you don't mind I have added a photo of the headstone of Reverend Thomas Hunter his great great grandfather who was minister of the parish for over 50 years before his death in 1760. Thank you.

RE: Hassel Family in Millington Newark

census. A widow again and living in Kendall,
Kendall, Illinois.
