|Bio and Links|
I got interested in my geneology after I did some restoration on the Chapin plot.|
Samuel Chapin ( in the plot ) was my three times great grandfather.Samuel was a Veteran of the Revolutionary and War of 1812.
Samuel's son James Corse, my twice great. I have yet to locate him or his death date.
James Corse's son Walter, my great.
Walter's son Frank, my grand.Walter was in the Civil War.
Frank's son Clayton, my father.
I have finished plotting the Oquawka Cemetery.
I have almost 3900 burials in a data base by plot number.
I can find any burial in a very short time now.
Some stones that were there in 1980, I can not find now.
If you need help finding someone, just let me know, I can help with that.
When ever possible I put the plot number in my memorials. I know this does most people no good, but it does help me locate them. There is no online map to the cemetery and until this year there was no map of what is called the West Addition. I made one. The cemetery association now has one and I have the original.
Thank you in advance for transferring any memorials to me.
It's nice to get them under one roof,so to speak.
If I can help you in any way,just ask and I'll try.
And any help you can give will be greatly appreciated,

|Robert Ortega||RE: Lulu Wall McKee|
The names of Lulu Wall McKee's other husbands were Lauren Woodbury, Albert Owen, and Armstead McKee. I know that Lauren Woodbury (divorced) and Armstead McKee both outlived her and remarried. Lauren passed away in California in 1924 and Armstead died in Iowa in 1940. The latter is in fact buried in Iowa and there is a photo of his headstone on Find A Grave. That just leaves Albert(or A.G.)Owen as the other husband who might also be buried in the South Henderson Cemetery.
|Robert Ortega||Lulu Wall McKee|
When you took the photo of Lulu Wall McKee's headstone, did you happen to notice which two people she was buried between? I was wondering because I heard that Lulu was married five times and was buried between two of her husbands. I know that one of them, Franklin Wall, is also buried in the South Henderson cemetery.

|Gary Walker||RE: Duplicate photos|
My mistake I will send the messege to the right person now.
|Gary Walker||Duplicate photos|
For George Riley Noble, Find A Grave Memorial# 102235528 you have add the same photo twice. Would you delete one of them, so someone else may add addition different photos if desired. Duplicates are easy enough to do by accident, it has happened to me more than once.
|Connie Carroll||Charlotte Mae Smith Kimmitt|
Ron, Thank you so much for taking the time to take a great shot of Charlotte's headstone and posting it. It is greatly appreciated!
Hi again - yes, there is a stone for Earl F. Norville (1889 - 1968) at Roseville Cemetery in Illinois. I was busy there last weekend - taking pictures. Now holiday weekend, I'm putting pictures up and listening to the storm outside!
Keep up the wonderful work! Got my Hend. County Gen. Soc. newsletter today - May 28th - it says who will be speaking at April 21st meeting - thanks, huh?

Thank you for the picture of Ernest James Beresford's stone at Biggsville! I had a much worse version and was hoping someone would come along and take a decent picture!

|Coleen Thomas||William S. Smith Photo|
Ron I thank you very much but I am not sure this is my gggrandfather. He was born About 1811, his wife was Elizabeth Sands who died in 1858. If he did remarry Hester A. Smith was the age of his youngest daughter. Oh, why do Smith's have to have such common names ! Again a big thanks for the picture.
