Bio and Links
Most memorials are a work in progress.
I have taken many photos over the years, especially of old stones that will soon be illegible.
If you have a better photo, feel free to post it.
Corrections are welcome.
I don't want to post unverified information or speculation.
I am happy to transfer memorials except a few of my direct ancestors and close relatives.

Pleasant Valley Cemetery
Thank you for your message concerning Pleasant Valley Cemetery, which is listed at Find A Grave as being in Thompsonville, Illinois. I believe you are right, that this cemetery does not exist, and that obituaries that mention Pleasant Valley Cemetery, "east of Thompsonville", are referring to the Pleasant Valley Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery, which is in West End, Illinois, just over the Saline County line. I have sent inquiries to some of the creators of memorials that are registered at this "phantom" cemetery, and I hope that they will transfer their memorials to the correct cemetery. Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.

Jacob jackson Short
susan, I am trying to locate a daughter-n-law of Jacob short's. Nancy Maria dawson hurst short. Nancy was married to john Hurst buried in franklin cemetery, at Whittington. John died & nancy married William Henry short son of Jacob Short.

John & Nancy had a son Ezra hurst who is buried in the Howard cemetery at hurst.

I have not been able to locate nancy hurst short. I am told she & William & divorced after they had 2 children Grace Ethel & Ida Short. I am not sure these children are nancy's but this is what I have been told. On the 1900 census William Short had these 2 children in the house with him, plus others. There is a Nancie Dawson Short buried in ZION CEMETERY at Carbondale but if the date on find a grave are correct this can't be our nancy Hurst short. I have requested a picture of her stone to be taken & placed on her memorial page so that I can figure if this is our nancy. Can you shed some light on this family? Any information you can give me would really be appreciated. Thank You, Alice Hurst

Sorry, had a Senior moment and hit the wrong button twice. Thank you so very much for the picture. I found out from a cousin in Illinois he is my Uncle, my Moms brother. If he is not related to you, could I take over his memorial? Thank you again. Marsha
