Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and old cemeteries! I am currently working on restoring an old, "abandoned" cemetery near Pleasant Hill in Pike county, Illinois with my father, Lonnie Robinson, and my good friend, Chris Harris. It is a shame to see the final resting places of the pioneers to this area covered in brush, briars and completely neglected. I need volunteers to help keep these cemeteries maintained and mowed.....

Many of the oldest gravestones have toppled or broken and I would like to get them standing proudly again. I'm learning the PROPER way through the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency cemetery preservation workshops. It's a lot of work, but it's definitely worth it.

I welcome any corrections, links, etc. to my memorials and I'm always willing to transfer memorials that aren't my kinfolk to an actual relative. I'm sure I've made many mistakes and I won't be offended if you point them out......:-)

If you appreciate seeing your ancestor's burial location, show your support by donating to that cemetery's maintenance fund. There are a few good folks who volunteer to keep the many old cemeteries in good shape by mowing, trimming trees, clearing brush, etc. and a donation toward their costs is a great way to show your support and appreciation! Without them, all the old cemeteries would disappear......(if you don't know where to send donations, please message me and I will find out for you)

Thank you! Love the picture and bio of my mom and dad, and appreciate your time to do that. We live out of the area, and it is nice to see the memorial stone, as we have not seen it since it was put in place. Much appreciated!

Hannah Almira Myers
I think she is buried at Taylor-Martin and that there is a typo on either her stone or something i think she is buried under Hannah A Meyers and has the death date as 1876 instead of 1870. Just an idea.I am going to do some research. and get back to you.

John A Callender update
Apparently he is not related to the Pike Co. Callenders - he was born in NY, and he and Almina Roberts were living in Alameda Co., CA in 1910 and 1920.
