Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Ripley Co. Hoping to get many cemeteries
cataloged and on find a grave. Hopefully will help some
one find their family. Many cemeteries are over grown
and some you can not get to.( land owners fencing off
the road) Need to band together and get the state to pass
a law to stop this from tragic practice.
1 cemetery in need of quick rescue is Stillwell
cemetery in Ripley Co off N-2 gravel.
Very historical place and in total ruin. Road fenced off
and no way to reach it.

William & Christena Atteberry
The information I added to their memorials is from their death certificates. According to William's death certificate he died at a hospital in St. Louis, MO. I didn't make this change. I did change Christena's first name to Sarah. Like so many people, she was known by her middle name.
Other information I have includes the following:
William and Christena were married 04 Aug 1889 in Wayne Co., IL.
Christena's parents were W. H. Wells & Catherine Travis.

Thanks for you contributions to Find A Grave.

I was wondering if you would transfer ownership of 5060130 for John Peter Funck. He is an ancestor and I would like to add his family links. Thanks

John Peter Funck
I was wondering if you could transfer the grave of John Peter Funck to me. Or if not could you link John to his Father John Christopher Funck #100313246 and his mother Catherine Funck 100313504, and first wife Josephine Dusheck Funck #51221543. They are ancestors of my husband. Thanks

RE: Thanks
Wilma Tieman was my father's half sister. When I was 13 years old, I went with my grandparents (Wilma's parents) to visit her grave. Granddad had to drive thru a stream just to get to the cemetery. This was many years ago, but it seemed like the cemetery was very small and in the middle of nowhere.

G-Father's grave
He is in an unmarked grave in the Buncomb Cementery. Wilbur Hocking, was bured there by the Black's Mortuary of Corning. The Mortuary no longer exist. I am told the cemetery maybe on private property. If I could just get a picture and location. I would like to try to put a marker on it. He is suppose to be buried by his daugther, but haven't found any recored of that. My mom told me that. Thanks
