|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, Grove, 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

If you are in the Mt. Horeb cemetery ever again, I would like a photo of the gravestone of Maria Ecken Flessner. Thanks Carol Rossel
Thanks for the transfer, I appreciate it! Fern is in good hands.

If you are willing I would love to assume management of Fern's memorial, #53207079. She was my maternal grandfather's first wife. Either way is fine. Thanks for the consideration. :)

Sorry, I glanced at the maker of the memorial and not at your name. I appreciate your efforts and sorry I called you Linda instead of Connie.

Haven't seen the article and would love to put it in my data. Thank you so much for the response! It was fun to find them and link everyone up properly. I really appreciate your work. It helped me a lot . . . and if you can find an obit for Marie that tells me her last name, that will clear up one more puzzle. Thanks again.

Are you related to the Cowdery family? My hsuband is related through the Mickle/Cowdery line. I have been trying to figure out his second wife's (Marie) maiden name . . . not being local and no access to obits, it is a bit difficult. Thank you for creating Vada/Veda's memorial which allowed me to update my links.
