Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my leisure time I sometimes walk through cemeteries and record those who are beneath my feet.

I find walking cemeteries to be good exercise and by the task of documenting cemeteries a way of helping families visit their loved ones.

Should you find I've made an error in a memorial of perhaps a friend or loved one be it typo or missing info please POLITELY let me know. I stress the politeness as I see all too often people here on this site demand things rather than a pleasant request.

Thank you,

RE: Spegal of Nebraska
Yes I am a distant relative of the Spegel's of Nebraska. That is if you are looking into the Spegel's from the Buffalo/Lexington communities.

David, if you are related to these Spegal's I would like any information as to how you are related. Likewise I will provide you with the genealogy data that I have acquired.

I see that you manage the gravesites of Jack and Patricia Spegel. They would be a second cousin to me.

RE: Hamilton Co., IL
Yes, I've ran across the family name Kuykendal in Hamilton and here in Franklin. Many years ago they ran a business here in West Frankfort. Kaye

William Acks
David, thank you for the grave posting for William Acks. My grandmother Paula Acks was William's second wife. Her maiden name was Beeler, and her first husband Ernst Weinmann passed away, and she moved to southern Illinois and married William Acks.
A correction to your listing-
In the 1930 census listing, my father Ernest's (and my) last name spelling is Weinmann. If the census spelled it as Weinmany, that was an error.
The same for my Aunt Eva.

A message left for you by Eileen M. last November stated there was no stone for William. The Findagrave website also lists a grave for a William Acks in St. John Nepomucene cemetery with birth and death dates similar, but not the same (b. 1866, d. June 18, 1938). Could this be the missing stone for the William in Oddfellows?

RE: Photos left?
I went to Mt. Zion Cemetery and took better photo's of John Joseph Parkhill's military marker and of his and his wife, Reuverta Anna Wilson Parkhill's grave marker. I also took picture of Anna's parents, Thomas Wilson & Mary (Butler) Wilson's grave marker. Either Ginger Vick or JF Ehrhart had to have deleted them. If you want them send me your email address and I will email them to you. Kaye Harkins McClintock #47734417

RE: Robert Smith #58425704
David thanks for all your input and all your everything else. When I get time as I am busy as a hospice volunteer I haven't had time to update your 1001 request but trust me when I get time I will. I hope you can put your focus on someone else. Thank you very much for all your thoughtfulness. Good luck on your many adventures... No response is necessary as Im off to hospice.

#106716270 John Joseph Parkhill
Well our John Joseph Parkhill is really getting around for me not being able to find him! Just now found Mr. & Mrs Parkhill under different memorial numbers and JF Ehrhart (#47847353) added them Mar 14, 2013. Would you believe he has him in Mt Olive Cemetery at Bluford, Jefferson County, IL? I wrote him a message asking if he took the photo's and when. I also asked where even though he has Mt. Olive listed? I believe them to be Betty Albright's photos. I cannot believe I missed their grave today. There is not that many buried there. I did find Reuverta A. Wilson Parkhill's parents there? JF Ehrhart has no clue that Ginger Vick has them already listed. I am calling it a night, this has given me a headache! Kaye Harkins McClintock #47734417

RE: #95690086 Mr. Parkhill
Went to Mt Olive Cemetery in Bluford,Jefferson County,IL today and our Mr. John J. Parkill & wife were not there! Their gravestone photos I posted are definitely theirs but they are not in that cemetery and I looked long and hard for them. I think there must be two Mt Olive cemeteries. one in Hamilton County & one in Jefferson County. It appears the website that I found these on has some errors! The trip wasnt wasted as I got pictures of the church and cemetery plus done graves. Kaye Harkins McClintock

#95690086 John Joseph Parkhill
If this John Joseph Parkhill #95690086 was born 19 Dec 1891, he died 21 Jan 1961. He is buried in Mt Olive Cemetery in Bluford, Jefferson County, IL. I found it today on this website:

I posted both grave photos I found for John Joseph to his Memorial #95690086 today. I hope Ginger Vick doesn't delete them as they are Betty Albright's photo's, not mine! I posted the Mt Olive Church photo to Find A Grave as it shows this cemetery beside it but I really doubt Find A Grave will use it as it is not mine. It is Betty Albright's too! The Cemetery is listed on Find A Grave as being in McLeansboro but it isn't cause McLeansboro is in Hamilton County, IL. Mt Olive is in Jefferson County (county lines are close to each other. I am going to make a trip up there and get picture for myself of this cemetery and these grave markers and then I will get back to you. John Joseph is brother to Amos Martin Parkhill #20666185 and Amos is husband of Roxie P. (Carr) #20666191. Carr's are my direct line. Please send me your email address! Thank you, Kaye Harkins McClintock #47734417

Nancy Anna Storie
You requested a photo for her at Walla Walla cemetery - there is no "Walla Walla Cemetery" in the county BUT there is a Keiser Cemetery in Walla Walla county which has a Narsis Storie (with Photo) and a death date of May 24 1880. Would this be the person you are looking for?
