I typed in the year wrong on the previous message. George's death year is 1885 not 1855. This doesn't change the issue, I just wanted to fix the date.

George Washington Kiser II
I want to thank you for submitting to find a grave - your help in submitting is a wonderful help. I was looking at the headstone of George Washington Kiser II (our 4th great grandfather) and have found that the birthdates don't add up. He died March 19, 1855 and had lived 86 y 4 m and 27 days (according to the headstone) which puts his birth at October 20, 1798. The date that is listed September 23, 1827 is his son's birthdate (which also has the same name). So, the birth date just needs to be adjusted to October 20, 1798.

ALSO, we have had a hard time finding George's father - if you have any information regarding this we would love to know.

Thanks again for your contribution to find-a-grave. We are anxious to hear from you.

Elijah Hughes

Elijah M Hughes is in Oakwood Cemetery, Bedford County, Va-with his wife, Leanna M Hughes (1845-1916). They share a double stone, and there is a picture of it available on Cemetery.

Elizabeth Kettlewell Lord Blanchard
Hi. I noticed you had the death date for Elizabeth as 10 May 1899 but the "funeral card" has 11 May 1899. Is your 10 a typo or do you have another source for her death?

The pictures you posted are wonderful, thank you.

Catherine Bonnell 1831-1888

Catherine Bonnell 1831-1888, wife of Emanuel seems to be buried in two places. Once in the (old stone) that you show at North Prairie and again with a much newer stone at Greenfield Cemetery in La Moille, Bureau, Ill. Is it possible that she was moved to Greenfield in 1917 when Emanuel died? Unlikely he remarried another Catherine with the same dates.

Any Ideas? My daughter is Catherine's 4x great granddaughter.

RE: Izzich Spake
Thank you Robert for trying to find Izzich. I came up from Georgia and went to North Prairie cemetery last summer and lots of old graves have lost their stones...

RE: Thornburg
I'm sorry but I am unable to help with the restoration of John T's headstone.

Thank you very much for all the info. I really appreciate it!

God Bless,

Correction. As you know, Thornburg's Find-A-Grave was created by someone else. Sorry about that. Here's a link to his... it also shows a headstone (illegible, though), so he must be there.

RE: conrow
Thanks again for transferring the Conrow memorials. I appreciate it!

As far as I know, Thornburgh is buried there in North Prairie. I have a 1870 Census that shows him living in La Moille,IL. He died 5 years later, so I am assuming he is in that cemetery; especially since the children are buried there too (I believe they are his & his wife, Sarah's children... the sons & daughter of 'T&S'.) Also, Methodist is the main religion of my family... I initially found a list on that listed his name as being there; plus the Find-A-Grave site you created. So just assumption on my part. =)

Are you fairly certain that John T was 56 when he died or that he died in 1871? The reason I ask is that I have Thornburgh's brother John's birth date as 1837, so that wouldn't fit...? Oh, unless John T was his uncle? He'd fit in there... although I don't have a John listed as such? Not that, that matters. I could have just missed him.

Sorry if all that is a bit confusing. I'm just trying to figure out if I have the right info/family members/graves. Thanks for all your help! I really appreciate it!

God Bless,
