2010, I am in the process of gathering the soldiers of the Civil War 85th ILLinois Infantry Regiment into virtual cemeteries.|
Please email me if you know the resting place of any soldier I have not yet found.
Origins of Companies
B---Fulton and Mason Co.

G---Fulton and Schuyler Co.
September 2013. I have started a virtual cemetery for Mason County IL WWI Veterans.
2012 Virtual Cemetery for victims of the Chatsworth Train Wreck in my list virtual cemeteries.
I generally try to add whatever additional bio I can find when I enter a memorial, military or otherwise. I use Ancestry.com , marriage and census records, and other similiar types of search sites.
Please contact me if I enter incorrect info or links.
I enjoy taking and posting photos.
Cemetery walking involves planning, time, gas, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, assorted other bugs, dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, mud, dirt, snow, rain, dust, wind, sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, and BUCKETS of sweat.
I had to throw my lunch to a couple wild peacocks headed my way. Seems they have a fondness for egg salad.
I appreciate those folks who list their source when posting my photos to Ancestry.com :)

Thank you for the headstone photos for Jonathan Combs Conover. He is my 4th great grandfather. I appreciate your help, because I am not sure I will ever make it to Illinois to see his final resting place.

Thank you very much for your additions to the memorials for Earl W. and Sallie Shermeyer. I appreciate it.

Thank you so much for the transfer, Debra!
Thanks Debra for entering the Nancy A. Weddle (wife of R. J. Weddle) in the Sheldon's Grove Cemetery. I am still looking hard at these Schuyler county Weddles and trying to make the connection to our George A. Weddle.
Remember, he was the one found in 1870 with William Riley Weddle, but with your help, we determined that he probably wasn't the son of William Riley Weddle.
I am wondering if he is the son of Randolph Jackson Weddle, whom I believe is the brother of William Riley Weddle.
The patriarch and matirarch of this family are Amos Weddle and his wife, Nancy Carlock Weddle Mitchell.
