Brave heroes and heroines!
Their graves shall yet be found,
And monuments shall mark their dust,
As sacred earth and ground."

Charles "Oscar" Wilkins
Is Charles your ancestor? If so I wonder if you have any additional information on the family. My great grandfather was an adopted child of Thomas and Cynthia Welbourn of Anita Iowa. Alva died young and under tragic circumstances. There is a newspaper article that states he was the son of Oscar Wilkens, and that he came to live with the Welbourn's at the age of three. I am trying to connect Alva with his biological parents as well.

Henry Travis Maynard
I was just reading your memorial page for Henry. My great-great grandfather was Henry's brother, Abraham, buried in Hampshire, IL. I was wondering if you have any info on their parents, Isaiah & Esther (Travis) Maynard. Another contributor sent me a link for an Esther Travis Maynard buried in Orth Cemetery, Boone County, IL. I was unaware that either of the parents came to Il. but I guess this is possible as I read that Henry lived in Belvidere for a time. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks, Melanie Howe

RE: I greatly appreciate your help!
I also added the description to the Cemetery page itself. It was based on some of the notes you have on his memorial. If you want more added, let me know.

Duplicate memorial in "Crutchfield Cemetery" has been eliminated. Duplicate photos have occurred from the merger so might need removing.

Effie Voorus in Ferncliff Cemetery
I recently filled a photo request for Effie and saw that her sister's (Keziah)memorial mentioned another sister in Springfield, Ohio. It stated that she was married to a D. L. Adelsperger. I did find several Adelspergers in the cemetery and went ahead and photographed them as well.

I don't know if they are connected to your individuals or if you are interested in this information. They are located in the Ferncliff cemetery in Springfield:

Sec P lot 115
Dow Adelsperger d1923
Neal Adelsperger d1918
Theresa Adelsperger d1940

I have also asked for the duplicate memorial to be deleted. I hope it helps.

Dear Cathy,
I'd very much like to contact you re Isabel [Lane] Logue, who was the sister of my husband's ancestor Richard A. Lane (1796-1871) of Warren Co. / Mason Co., IL. Richard's son was Jake A. Lane - also buried at Big Grove Cemetery, and whose children moved to Edna, Cass Co., IL.
My e-mail is:
