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!!!

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)

Thank you for your kind words and taking time to photograph graves. Since I do not live in Illinois, I get few opportunities to take pictures. I've added the obituary to the record you requested. Let me know if I can be of any more help.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to photograph the headstones of James and Flora Ward in the Griggsville Cemetery and John McGaw in the Blue River Cemetery. I was thrilled to see them and I very much appreciate all the time it took to travel to these various cemeteries, then find the graves to photography. Thanks again!
