Bio and Links
I am a recently retired school teacher. I've been doing genealogy for the past 30 years. I recently joined the Find a Grave website.

I have completed photographing and uploading all the stones from the Little Rock Township Cemetery in Plano, Illinois. I still have about 10 pictures of very old faded stones that I will use the burial index to identify, but that project will wait until spring. If you wish any of the entries transfered to you, please email me.

The Griswold Cemetery south of Plano has now been completed. There are a number of unreadable stones in the cemetery. I have tried to identify them using an early reading of the cemetery, so that is why some stones may be hard to read.

Fowler Grove Cemetery north of Plano has been completed.

Elmwood Cemetery is Yorkville is totally uploaded, thanks to some assistance with some of the stones.

Working on Pratt's Oak Law and Oak Ridge in Sandwich. Pratt's has a great many partially buried stones and who knows how many totally buried.

RE: Hassel Family in Millington Newark
Thank you for photo. Christine Hassell should be
Christopher Hassell and he is the father of George
Hassell, someone has made a name change but not done yet.

I am looking for George Hassell's wife.........

Belinda S Evans Hassell Lee B. abt 1839. She remarried and the last record for her is the 1880
census. A widow again and living in Kendall,
Kendall, Illinois.

Are you able to check the cemetery records?

Thank you for any help.

Thank you so much for the photo for Alfred Haymond. It looks like that stone has been buried for quite awhile. I appreciate you finding it!!

You have attached a photograph of a stone that does not match the person who is memorialized, or the stone has the wrong year of birth ... Phebe Elizabeth (Swartout) Tripp was born in 1829 and the stone reads 1843 as a year of birth.

RE: Francis T. Miller
I am quite certain, at least in my own mind that this is father and son...........

Francis T. Miller
Since you posted the picture of the tombstone on this grave I will start with you. I have reason to believe that this man was the second husband of my great-great grandmother. The Francis T. Miller I am interested in has his father buried in this same cemetery. I notice that it says on stone died....but the date is covered up. If you live within a reasonable distance and should go to that cemetery again could you please attempt to tell me the death year, then I would know for certain if this is the Francis T. Miller I am in search of. Thank you for any help in this matter.

I believe that you have listed Esther's Mother-in-law as her spouse. I understand how things can get confused. Thanks, Cissy Flew Nichols
