Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was small and would spend the day with my grandparents, I was not allowed to cross the street. I could, however, go along with my friend Bonnie,(and her little dog, "Willie") around the block to Rosemont in Plymouth, Illinois. This started my interest in the stones as art; the history of the people in my community, and my love of cemeteries and their preservation.

Now that I live in my grandparent's house, I realize she only had to look out her back window for a fine view of the cemetery -- clever grandma!

Tim Coplin and I did mapping and a complete photocataloging of all the stones in the Old Macomb (Illinois) Cemetery. Tim also made a map of the cemetery.

I am actively working on a number of cemeteries: Mt. Horeb, in Adams Co.; Old Augusta & Woodlawn near Augusta; Rosemont, Irwin, St. Mary, all near Plymouth and Bowen all in Hancock Co.; Scott and Old Macomb in McDonough Co., and Round Prairie (Schuyler Co.)also near Plymouth,IL.

We live on the convergence of Hancock, McDonough, and Schuyler Counties in Illinois and are only a short distance to the Adams Co. line. This is an area that many pioneers passed thru or stopped over for a few years before continuing West. If you contact me, please state the cemetery which is concerned - that would help alot - thanks.

Please let me know if any of my entries need additions/corrections/deletions or if you want to assume management of an entry. If I can help in anyway, please let me know.

Happy graving to all. Connie

RE: Eva Lionberger Mem #49471392
I have contacted Melanie, but have not heard from her. I guess you may as well transfer the Memorial to me and then I can communicate with her as to whether she wants hers merged or deleted. I checked out the FAQ and it said they can be combined or one deleted, but it didn't say how. I guess one would just need to be deleted as long as all the information is on the other one. My Find A Grave # is 47986407.

Eva Lionberger Mem #49471392
Eva was my mother's oldest sister who died before any of the other 9 children were born. The Memorial you set up has more information than a duplicate site which was set up by a granddaughter of Eva'a oldest brother. Also the cemetery you listed (Grove) is correct, and Melanie's is not. The two are very near each other, but I have been to both and know Grove is correct. I will contact Melanie and see what she wants done. Is there a way to combine the two?

Patricia was my third great grandmother. Would you like more information on additional family members and gravesites to link? Thank you for the picture--a very interesting stone.

Would you like me to transfer her to you? She's no relation to me, that I am aware of anyway... :)

I have requested it be made a cenotaph and will include links to the other memorial when I find it. Note that anyone can request a memorial be made into a cenotaph :) May have to just show where the burial is actually located. Thanks!

Just a Note
Hi, Connie. A picture has been placed on your Gerald Clark memorial (# 86443637) that does not belong there. The dates on the top picture (1953 - 2000) are all wrong and the person who put it there cannot be contacted due to health concerns. If you leave it, that's find with me. I have a different person of the same name I'm doing a memorial for!

His death date is actually 1962, not 1955.
