Bio Photo "The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten." -- Cesare Pavese

I love visiting cemeteries, ever since I can remember. Sometimes when I visit a cemetery and gaze over the area, I'm awe-struck by the number of souls who have walked this soil before me. Sometimes when I visit, I'm confronted by a dog who wants my lunch and when given it, becomes my friend for life. And sometimes when I visit a cemetery, I feel like I'm apartment hunting.

Forgive me if I make memorial errors or procedural mistakes. Please let me know of my errors and I'll gladly correct them. I'm just an old lady who's trying her best.

Thank you for your kindness and compassion...

Thanks for the photo of Delmar's headstone! I wasn't absolutely certain he was in this cemetery and this helped tremendously!

Hi- I see you left a very nice photo of my great great grandfather on his memorial - just wondering where you got it- if you might be family. Thank you. Steve Grover

Peleg Brown
I'm surprised his name was there. The cemetery index just states P R so I figured that was how it read. I've never really known how to put his name in ancestry so now I'll use this as a source.
Thanks so much for doing this.

Lydia Merrett - Merritt
Thank you so much for doing this. I do have a favor to ask. She has another memorial with the spelling of Merritt which is how the family spelled it. Lydia Robinson Merritt in Mt. Bloom. I'd really appreciate it. Pat.
I also have another question re; IL Ancestors Tombstone Project. I posted a picture years ago for Emma and I can not find the original. Is it alright to copy this pic and use on this website?
