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

Capt. Lemuel Johnson
You have two children linked to Lemuel. These are his grandchildren, children of his son Lemuel H. Johnson who was buried in Elmwood Cemetery; Chanute, Neosho, Kansas in 1914. Capt. Johnson is my 4th great-grandfather. Lemuel married Anna M. Wood about 1870 after his first wife Mary passed away.

It's me again. :) My Grandma was 91 when she died and it says 81. Isn't 1887-1978 91 years?

Connie, I have just started doing my family history on my Mom's side the Little's and was surprised to find this picture of my Grandma Eva Little stone but we all called her Grandma Lizzie. My mother was Fern Stout daughter of Eva Elizabeth Little. Thank you for your wonderful work of doing this.

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... :)
