I recently discovered a log of a number of grave sites in Iroquois Co., IL and have added them to the list of sites in the Ash Grove Cemetery. These graves were logged in Aug. 9, 1967. Pleae contact me if you would like any corrections made, or if I can supply any information that I may have.
Please feel free to use any of the photos I have placed on Find A Grave.
Re: Ona Belle (York) Jeffers Campbell The Belle buried with John is not Ona, she is John York's 3rd wife Flora Belle Jeffers, they were married 25,Dec,1900 in Miami Co. IN. Ona married Flora Belle's brother Charles E Jeffers, they had 2 daughter Esther & Mary, they moved to California & then divorced, Charles came back to Miami Co. with the 2 girls & married again, raised his daughters, Ona stayed in California & married Donald Campbell. Donald died in 1940, don't know what happened to her, she may have married again. I have submitted an obituary for Flora Belle (Jeffers) York which definitely proves who she was. I know that Ona Belle was living with her grandparents in 1900 & she was born Dec,1887. I hope this added information helps you.
Re: Re: Palmer David Lesher Have you ever thought that the Palmer Lesher you are looking for is the same. Ima didn't pass on until 1991, as my experience when I was widowed I kept all utilities in my husband's name, I went to change everything & they said it wasn't necessary, it is a common thing with widows. This could be a case with Ima just keeping everything the same.
Re: Palmer David Lesher Ima is linked as his wife not mother his parents are Frank & Lydia (Heskett) Lesher which he is also linked to.

William Foy Hello Nina, my name is Teresa and I am married to Jeff Fly, one of William's grandsons. Since we know his last name was changed sometime before he went Ingo the military we would like to know if you are sure if he is your cousin. If so we would love to talk with you about him since we have very little to go off of before his marriage to Cloe Irene and we would love to know more about him and his family. Thank you for your time. Teresa Foy
Lois M. Hicks Hi Nina, I have added the links. With all the snow and low temps this winter it seems to me like the longest winter ever. I can't wait to be able to get back out into the cemeteries again. Have a great day! Rickey
