I am here to help if I can :) And the name....some just don't understand why I would want to walk in a cemetery and take pictures...but I love it :)|

Cindy Ford & Misty Flannigan listed my ancestors markers at the Sugar Camp Cemetery in Jefferson County, Illinois. 'Find a Grave' doesn't list them. Do you have any record of a Joshua Brake, Benjamin Franklin Brake and a Sophia Elizabeth Brake? If so, are there any photos? Thanks, Ron Brake of Eureka, MO.

I have entered Nancy Ann (Porter) Stull in Stull Cemetery as she is listed on a stone with her husband. I just found your entry in Richardson Hill. I presume she really is buried there as the Stull Cemetery stone gives no death dates. How do you handle duplicate stones and cemetery entries? I will abide by your wishes as I believe your memorial pre-dates mine. Just let me know the proper procedure.
