Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am documenting burials in the following cemeteries in Hancock County, Ill.: Fountain Green, Hadley, St. Simon (a.k.a. Lincoln or Lincoln Catholic), Majorville, Roberts, Webster, Willis, Wright, Yetter. Also Friendship and Hills Grove in McDonough County, Ill. Links to these cemeteries are located on my homepage.

I implore Find A Grave members to seek out tombstones which have not been documented. We all have family trees in which there are persons for whom we have no evidence of when or where they died and were buried.

Please familiarize yourself with the guidelines outlined in the "Help with Find A Grave", linked at left, particularly those under the Working With Photos heading:

--Can I add a photo that I found on a different website?

--Someone posted my copyrighted photos! How can I get them removed or get them properly credited?

--I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

The above questions and answers are in agreement with standards approved by the National Genealogical Society

Unless otherwise stated by the contributor, no tombstone photographs taken after 1989 are in public domain. If you are creating your own family tree on another website, please respect the copyright of the contributor.

Above all, remember that "We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery."

Thanks for bringing to my attention the duplication. I have deleted my memorial for her.

virtual flowers
Thank you for all the virtual flowers you have on the Andersons in La Harpe Cemetery in La Harpe, Hancock county Illinois.

Are you related to any of the Anderson Family?

Thank you

# 69343830. Thanks for letting me know I created a dulicate--I did a search first and nothing came up. I found the burial records and didn't seem to have many of the people on findagrave, so I spend the day adding them even though they aren't "mine". I know my greatgrand parents very likely knew them :)

John and Mary LONDRIE
Hi Marcia,
Can you tell me if there is a stone for John and Mary, please? I see there is a request for one on the page. I am wondering if this is why it hasn't been filled.
Thanks

RE: Ivan Hawthorne Baird
I myself am a veteran, I served 20 years. I am well acquainted in protocol. I am directly descended from those who served in the American Rev, War of 1812, Civil War, WW I, and WW II. I have sons fighting in the current wars.

My take on including the deceased veteran's rank, if known and available, is to make it stand out as a veteran's memorial. As far as if the deceased person's rank precedes their name, well I can not think of any VA/government supplied headstone in the past 150 years that is written that way. They tend to be
Name
rank / service
DoB/DoD
(optional added statement in the last few years have been allowed at the bottom)

Very simple be it an upright or flat marker.

As for my apparent thoughts of my cousin having passed away in St Louis I am at a loss as to what or where my reference is. Why is he buried where he is. Well there has been family in the area since the 1800s. That would be home area for him.

Yes, he was in the Foreign Service in the early 20th century. I have seen his passport application stating such on ancestry.com

So in closing I am simply asking that his service be recognized. That is done via including his rank. Thank you.

Ivan Hawthorne Baird
Marcia,

Would you please consider adding my cousin's rank of Sgt to his name line? He served and has earned that rank during his service. Among my reasons for the adding is this way veteran's memorials stand out.

Thank you.

Foiling
Marcia, here are 3 more examples of the foiling technique I learned from your Find A Grave page. On one it brings it out really well, on the other two, it does help quite a bit but the stones themselves are weathered.

135979612
135980693
135992467

All 3 are siblings.

Thanks!
