RE: East Alton Cemetery/Everett Springer
"True, it is now called Milton Cemetery. Milton road used to run down along the side of it and at the bottom of the cemetery was at one time considered East Alton until they reannexed it. Some old obituaries say the people are in the East Alton Cemetery when in fact they are in Milton Cemetery."

Milton Road still runs along side it and dead ends sort of. You can turn left on to Biscayne Blvd and follow it around to Hy Vista Dr to Wickenhauser Ave back to Milton Road. As you are driving along Milton Road near the now closed Mark Twain School and near Oscar Ave as if you making a right turn, the road becomes Comein Place which leads to Broadway and you take a left into East Alton.

I have never seen it refered to as East Alton Cemetery, except here and one other cemetery website who name I don't recall. I'll have to do some research into that for my records. That must have been before there was sexton to take care of the cemetery. From what I have seen and read it that the city of East Alton didn't want to care for it and didn't care for it and that it basically was abandoned for a short time til someone decided that something needed to be done to clean it up. A gentleman by the name of last name Miller now takes care of it with donations from families that have family buried there. The Miller family put together a headstone index back in 2001. Allen

East Alton Cemetery/Everett Springer
According to GPS Coordinates: Latitude: 38.88580, Longitude: -90.12360

this is Milton Cemetery in Alton, not East Alton Cemetery in East Alton.

Also the photo you submitted is more than likely the only photo there is now as it was not found to be photographed in April of 2012 with the rest that are there.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Patty - do you have access to burial records for the Oakwood Cemetery in Madison County. Eunice Lucille McMonigle Schueler's husband, William Reinholdt Schueler died in February 1967 in Florida. I notice his name has never been engraved on the grave marker he shares with his wife, Eunice. You took the photo of Eunice's grave. Either William was never buried next to his wife or no one bothered to have his death date engraved. Any ideas.

Joe Boy Chappell

I was stationed with Joe Chappell in France in 1957. I wonder if you know any of Joes relatives that I could contact. I have several photos of our time in France which his relatives might like to see.

Patty: Thank you for trying to get a photo of the gravesite of Pvt. Carroll Inman. I saw a photo on his memorial page that has a list of names. Is Carroll on that list? If so, do you have a higher resolution photo of that list? Thank you again for your help. I sincerely appreciate it. -- Henry J. "Hank" Inman.

RE: Maloney's
Thanks so much. 've started hooking the family members together. I'm about to take a "genealogy trip" to the Maloney home region in Pennsylvania -- I've been making my to-do list of what I knew and what I didn't.
