|Bio and Links|
I am documenting burials in the following cemeteries in Hancock County, Ill.: Fountain Green, Hadley, St. Simon (a.k.a. Lincoln or Lincoln Catholic), Majorville, Roberts, Webster, Willis, Wright, Yetter. Also Friendship and Hills Grove in McDonough County, Ill. Links to these cemeteries are located on my homepage.|
I implore Find A Grave members to seek out tombstones which have not been documented. We all have family trees in which there are persons for whom we have no evidence of when or where they died and were buried.
Please familiarize yourself with the guidelines outlined in the "Help with Find A Grave", linked at left, particularly those under the Working With Photos heading:
--Can I add a photo that I found on a different website?
--Someone posted my copyrighted photos! How can I get them removed or get them properly credited?
--I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?
The above questions and answers are in agreement with standards approved by the National Genealogical Society
Unless otherwise stated by the contributor, no tombstone photographs taken after 1989 are in public domain. If you are creating your own family tree on another website, please respect the copyright of the contributor.
Above all, remember that "We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery."

Thanks for your help with the Stanley's. I saw the eye doctor today and I'm good for six more months - whew. I've been doing the cemetery at Galesburg lately. I've gotten a few things about Glade City cemetery. I've got all the people whose monuments I need pictures of at Raritan marked off in a book, if I could ever drive down there. I'm hoping someone else who does pictures gets there first, then I only have to drive to Galesburg! Thanks again.

I updated her location of death & bio. Thanks for the suggestion.
I visited your website this evening and I thank you for a wonderful page on my Londrie family. I would truly like to have a copy of the obituary for Mary and the pic of the sons. It is so satisfying to see pics of the old ones.
I can see now that you are not related fromwhat is written on the website and you have done a wonderful job of compiling all this info. Thanks again.

I am thinking that you may be related to the LONDRIEs??
I should have mentioned that Lewis Henry's father John was the son of Eli or Levi or Joseph Elie as it is written on his baptismal cert. He was the son of Alexis Charles LANDRY and Marie Sara LeBlanc.Eli was the eldest of 9 and my 3rd g-uncle. My 3rd gramps was Jean Baptiste LANDRY later changed to LONDRY after he received an land grant in ON Canada. Jean Baptiste was the 8th and youngest son.

May I have your permission to use 2-3 photos of headstones for my family tree? I will certainly give credit to you.

|Judy Mecum Balk||Mordecai Lincoln|
on a recent visit to Fountain Green Il we were told by the caretakers of this farm cemetary,
That Mordecai had been moved by the Archdiocese
Of Peoria to their ?
I photographed all tombstones there and their were Lincolns
But no Mordecai.

Sorry, but I can't accept the edit for William Marshall as it is. I can't add William for spouse because of the order would be wrong. It makes William second and Thomas third. To be in correct order, the links have to come from Margaret, the original memorial. Please remove the spouse link on Thomas' memorial and then I can link Thomas and William as second and third spouse. I sure appreciat your help with this. JD

If I add William's link, it puts him as first spouce, which he wasn't. I asked Will Chalk to add the year 1898 for James Kington so his link will be first and then I can add Wm McCants.

|Tom Gittings||La Harpe Cemetery|
At the end of next week, I will be in Macomb and hope to spend Friday looking for some of my great grand parents/uncles/aunts who are buried in La Harpe Cemetery and for whom you have created links on Find A Grave.
If possible, could you help me locate the section of La Harpe Cemetery for the following people:
Lucy (Sperry) Gittings #119860176
Florella (Oatman) Sperry #9360929
Homer Gittings #119877730
Except for a Google map of La Harpe, I know nothing about the cemetery, like where is the Main Gate or where is Hungate's Addition?
Thank you for any information.
