|I have been fascinated by cemeteries since I was a kid. I grew up near the Old Baptist Cemetery in Hannibal - the one most people agree that Mark Twain used as a model for Tom Sawyer. That led me to other places. Over the years, I've explored a lot of cemeteries.|
Then, a few years ago, my mother got interested in geneology in a big way. She loved to research, and amassed a database of well-over 100,000 names. I'm now sorting through that database, and I've decided to help others in the same way.
So here I am, splitting my time between my own research, and documenting cemeteries in the area for other peoples' research. Let me know where you're looking, and I'll do my best to help. Feel free to use my images for your own geneology work - that includes using the images for Ancestry or Family Tree Maker. Please remember to give proper credit if you do any publishing. I prefer to be listed as Michael Mann, Quincy, IL

Thanks so much for the photo of Baxter's headstone. I will share it with my family. My great-grandmother was a half-sister to Baxter, and the story of his death was much told in the family, although they were under the impression he was working far from home and his burial place was unknown. I'm glad to know the real story now.
Thanks for the photos you posted for me at Lewistown Cemetery. It was a nice day to be out in cemeteries. Too bad I had other obligations. Thanks again!

Much thanks for all the photos! I very much appreciate your time and efforts, as well as the excellent job.
Enjoy your holiday and weekend!

Jacob Henry VanMeter, was born on 24 Sep 1824 in Hardin County, KY and died at the Illinois Soldier and Sailor Home in Quincy, Adams, Ill. on 16 Sep 1898.
He is a cousin and I thought you'd like the info.

Hello again. I was wondering if, while trudging through cemeteries and records, you had happened upon a grave or any records for Elza/Elzie D. Park. He was a resident of Quincy in 1832 and served as a Corporal in William G. Flood's Company, 2nd Regiment of Gen Samuel Whiteside's Brigade during the Black Hawk War. He is mentioned as mustering out by Fox River on 28 May 1832, with a notation that reads "Sick and absent by leave. Horse strayed or stolen at Rushville. Elza D. Park's horse recovered by E. L. Pearson, 1st Lt." I cannot find any other record for him after this date, so I suspect he died from sickness (possibly cholera) at that time. Is there a military graveyard in your area, or some other reference you could suggest?
