|Bio and Links|
When I was small and would spend the day with my grandparents, I was not allowed to cross the street. I could, however, go along with my friend Bonnie,(and her little dog, "Willie") around the block to Rosemont in Plymouth, Illinois. This started my interest in the stones as art; the history of the people in my community, and my love of cemeteries and their preservation.|
Now that I live in my grandparent's house, I realize she only had to look out her back window for a fine view of the cemetery -- clever grandma!
Tim Coplin and I did mapping and a complete photocataloging of all the stones in the Old Macomb (Illinois) Cemetery. Tim also made a map of the cemetery.
My daughter and I have plans to photograph and catalog several cemeteries. It just takes much more time than we had anticipated. We are actively working on a number of cemeteries: Mt. Horeb, in Adams Co.; Old Augusta & Woodlawn near Augusta; Rosemont, Irwin, all near Plymouth and Bowen all in Hancock Co.; Scott and Old Macomb in McDonough Co., and Round Prairie (Schuyler Co.)also near Plymouth,IL.
We are on the final stretch of several of these. Eventually, we would like to work in the St. Mary Cemetery, which is just a few miles north of Plymouth.
We live on the convergence of Hancock, McDonough, and Schuyler Counties in Illinois and are only a short distance to the Adams Co. line. This is an area that many pioneers passed thru or stopped over for a few years before continuing West.
Please let me know if any of my entries need additions/corrections/deletions or if you want to assume management of an entry. If I can help in anyway, please let me know.
Happy graving to all. Connie

Mitchell Luke Alexander and his wife, Patricia Jane Arbuckle are my husband's Great, Great Grandparents so we to, have a connection to those in Mt. Horeb Cemetery. I scratched his stone up out of the grass as it was covered up when we were there and we did not have any tools with us. If you get a better picture of his stone, I will remove my picture.

Connie. Thanks a million for the quick editing, Keep up all your great work on Find A Grave.
Connie, when the snow melts, could you do me a favor and visit Rosemont Cemetery and see if you can find William Oscar & Rose Markee? My cousin, Linda Markee, thinks they are buried there. If yes, maybe you could add them to Findagrave? If you are able to take digital photos of the stone that would be icing on the cake. Thanks. Allen
