RE: McCreight
I have found information that Nancy Dihel (note different spelling) married Ambrose Orr McCreight and children from that marriage were Frances Belle "Frankie" McCreight (Candor Cemetery), Clara B. McCreight, Alfred Blair McCreight, Mary Orr "Minnie" McCreight. Then Nancy married a second time to Robert Duncan Speer and they had children Ann, May, and Thomas Dihel Speer. (Several censuses confirm that she remarried and had children in the household with last name of McCreight)I'm thinking Nancy is probably in Aledo Cemetery. Aledo Cemetery does not have very many records in Find a Grave. I also am quite sure she is not in Candor Cemetery as I looked at the cemetery records for Candor at the Mercer County Historical Society and the only Nancy McCreight is the previous one we spoke of: Nancy M, whose stone is shown in the Candor listing. I'm going to keep looking for her gravestone as my interest in now peaked and I'm intrigued by this mission. Note: Robert D Speer was born about 1823. He is not the same Robert D Speer listed in the Aledo Cemetery.

Photo of Battle Flag for 51st NCT
Hey Donna, just thought this might be of interest to you also. The photo of the flag of the 51st NCT with J.W. Atkinson holding the flag was sent to me years ago by someone I do not know. It appeared in the newspapers. I have posted the same picture as of today to the grave of J.W. Atkinson memorial #60593866 . It would be nice if we can locate an obituary for him. Take care.

Agustus A. McKethan, Jr.
Hi Donna, I did double check on McKethan and the source that I first referred to from the North Carolina State Archives is the most complete source available, in addition the transcripts of the records cited in these volumes are directly copied from the National Archives where the original Muster Rolls of all of the Confederate Soldiers (that have a record) are on file. This morning as a back up I also referred to the Soldier and Sailors Data Base with National Archives and the information is verified in a note that this soldier A.A. Mckethan was originally filed as Augustus A. McKethan, Jr. Also his father born in 1809 would have been too old for service during the Civil War, although by many older men and young boys would served with a home guard unit. I have done extensive research in the 51st NCT over the past 25 years as my own ancestor was with this regiment. Here is a link to the National Archives Data Base for you to look at

I do appreciate your concern to make sure the records are right, I am like you, this is a very important issue with me also. I think it would be easy for someone to get the two mixed up.

Thanks! Tim

I realize now that the info on Nancy M McCreight that I recently sent you is not the Nancy McCreight gravestone you are seeking (different husband, different dates). I'll keep up my efforts to solve this mystery and will let you know of any breakthroughs. Sorry for the confusion.

Nancy McCreight
Hi to Vonna! I have some new developments in the search for Nancy McCreight's gravesite in Candor Cemetery, Mercer County Illinois. After Memorial Day services at the church at the cemetery site, I spoke with people who are familiar with the maintenance of the cemetery. There is a listing in the inside of the church of the names in the cemetery effective 1999. A Nancy M. McCreight is indeed found, wife of J.H. McCreight. She shows unknown birthdate and death Jan. 16, 1855, aged 32 years, 9 mos., 15 days. She is listed as being buried with Effie, Frannie, Harvey, James, Leanna, Leslie, Sarah, and William R. I am posting the gravestone photo on find a grave under her name, but not sure if this is what you are looking for or not?

Betsy Ann Gill Webster
Vonna -

Thanks so much for all you do. Makes searching so much easier and makes the people so much more real. Have I think a correction on Betsy. She is linked to Thomas Gill born 1793 as his daughter. I believe this is not correct. He would have been only 17 when she was born (possible, but early), but the biggest reason is his widow in her pension application for his service for War of 1812 gives their marriage as 3 Mar 1814 Cumberland County, and later claims she was the "first and only wife" of Thomas Gill. Don't have a candidate for her father, but pretty sure not this one.

Joseph Crumpler# 129609472

Hi there Vonnie :::waving::: Thanks for the info. All I can go by is the info on the Death Record which states this is where he was buried. His daughter's Death Record says she is also buried there. Daisy Crumpler-Fort ? # 129607619 Granted,
I'm aware there could possibly be more then one Crumpler Cemetery... I appreciate any info I can get. Blessings, Sandi :-)

I've deleted my memorial in riverside.
It's not worth the effort to rework both
