|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."

|Family Searcher||Ivan Hawthorne Baird|
Would you please consider adding my cousin's rank of Sgt to his name line? He served and has earned that rank during his service. Among my reasons for the adding is this way veteran's memorials stand out.
|Stephen Burke||Mausoleum photos|
I have emailed Find A Grave and ask for claracation of their policy on mausoleum photos and awaiting their reply. I will abid by their decision!!
|Stephen Burke||Samuel Dark|
If you a relative of Samuel Dark, please request a transfer and I will do so. I am not related.

Marriage dates to both husbands added to her memorial.
Marcia, here are 3 more examples of the foiling technique I learned from your Find A Grave page. On one it brings it out really well, on the other two, it does help quite a bit but the stones themselves are weathered.
All 3 are siblings.

No problem with the mix-ups. If you would like anyone transferred, just send an Edit. I know it's much easier to update them when you have control. Thanks for your work on them!
|Lance W||LaHarpe, IL cemetery|
I was wondering if you had some in depth info on the LaHarpe Cemetery. Do your records show a Benjamin F Hamilton buried there? He was born in about 1839 and died in about 1873. Any info you have on his burial whereabouts would be great. If you can confirm he is buried there, could you add a memorial for him and possibly the plot location description, if you have it? If not, just let me know and I could create the memorial as well. Thanks for your time. :) - Lance

|Ann||Elizabeth Willis White memorial|
Hi Marcia, above memorial #130657121, Friendship Cemetery , McDonough co., Illinois. Are you a descendant of the Willis family? You have so much information on her memorial, I thought I would ask. She is in my tree; a sister to my gr gr grandfather, Tilghman Willis (Jr.). If you have an obit for her, would love to get a copy. Thanks. Ann

I added his memorial based on a listing done by Robert and Mae Couch in the 1980's, I think. They have him as J. D. Lain, buried next to William J Lain. Next to William is L Lane - 1957 homemade marker. I live a couple hours away, but plan to photograph this cemetery hopefully in the next month or two.
I obviously goofed with the spouse link, so have removed it. If you would like him transferred, I'll be happy to, along with any other relations of yours I may have added.
Thanks for contacting me!

Jonas was my 4th great grandfather. Most of the information I receive is from Ancestry.com.
I do not guess at information I post. Thank you very much.
