|Wm & SJ. Donath||Dora Walling--Funk Cem. in Kernan, Ill.|
On the headstone of Dora Walling was apparently an inscription that she was the wife of J. H. Walling. I found an obituary for a Henry Walling who died on May 30, 1895 and buried on June 1, 1895 and he lived 2 miles east of Streator. Do you know if a base or a stone was laid down or unreadable next to Dora Walling? I think this is likely him as he would have been John "Henry" Walling but can not find a 'Find A Grave' memorial for him. Not certain what is 2 miles east of Streator in terms of cemeteries.
Are you able to check this out or is there anywhere to check records on this Kernan cemetery that early? If he was Dora's husband then one would think he would be buried with her. Small obit said he was an OLD SETTLER.

|Patricia KH||Absalom Kinsey 125712477|
I just wanted to add more information for Absalom Kinsey (125712477). This would include his
birth date of 21 January 1800, his wife Elizabeth Ellis Graham (b 11 June 1813, d 19 July 1894) and children: Sarah (from previous marriage, b 1835), Nathan (1846-1897), Ellis (b 1848), Rachel (b 1850), Melinda (1852-1920) and Issac (1854-1876). Thank you for posting the grave stone.
|Suzanne Peterson||Many thanks|
I so appreciate you photographing the Olroyd stone for me. Thank you.
|D. Gould Hall||Armitage memorials at Union Cemetery|
Mark - I just want to say thank you for the photos you have posted for the Armitage family. They are descendants of my 3rd great grandparents via their daughter, Ann M. Thorp who married William Armitage.
I really appreciate your efforts.
|Norson||RE: Grand Prairie Lutheran|
I have no way of knowing now (Dec 2014) what happened out there in the past but am now realizing that perhaps one or more individuals attempted to clarify the Herscher/Bonfield/Grand Prairie Cemetery Puzzle and frankly made it even more confusing.
I’ve been a findagrave volunteer for just over two years and I’ve been to the Rt. 17 Grand Prairie, plus that St. Peter and Paul Cemetery many times to take pictures. But I did not realize how the confusion reigned until I began looking more closely at the findagrave “Grand Prairie Cemetery” locations.
I am 81 and not in the best of health, but one of my goals fairly soon, is to get out into that Herscher/Bonfield area, drive to each and every cemetery listed and establish the correct GPS settings for them all. I will then report those settings to the findagrave authorities and wait to see what happens. I hope they see the value in making the necessary changes/corrections.
I plan on visiting
a) The Rt. 17 “Grand Prairie Cemetery” on the same property as the United Methodist Church, north of Herscher, currently showing 588 burials.
b) The “Norwegian Lutheran Grand Prairie Cemetery” located south of Herscher, currently showing 156 burials.
c) The “Grand Prairie Lutheran Cemetery” with GPS settings Latitude: 41.07006, Longitude: -88.06279 shown off “Townhall Road”, south of Rt 17 and Bonfield, and I have NO idea where that is, but I plan on finding it - some how, some way. The findagrave website shows having 24 burials.
It is my current belief that someone in the past “created” this cemetery when in reality it does not exist. For most of the people shown buried here are also buried at the Rt. 17 Grand Prairie Cemetery.
d) I will also visit and established correct GPS settings for The Bonfield Cemetery, The Zion Lutheran Cemetery, the Shreffler Cemetery and that St Peter and Paul Cemetery, if I have the time and energy. But the Bonfield Cemetery is the only one contributing now to the above confusion.
Part of the puzzle is this.
The largest of the above “Grand Prairie Cemeteries” is located in Herscher Township but has a Bonfield mailing address.
I sincerely hope, before the serious snow falls, to get out there and take some pictures, get those proper GPS settings and resolve the Grand Prairie Puzzle, once and for all.

|Norson||Grand Prairie Lutheran|
Hey, Mark . . . I see that you posted a picture of the Grand Prairie Lutheran Cemetery sign at the Rt 17 Grand Prairie United Methodist Church/Cemetery.
Would you kindly remove from the Rt 17 location.

|Doug Rhodes||Earp Cemetery|
Hi Mark, I see you have visited the Earp Cemetery in Livingston County Illinois. By chance, do you have a picture or know if John M. Blue is buried there? His wife Dot M. Blue is there and is on Find A Grave. He died in Jul 1944 and is probably there but I would like to know for certain.
Thank you for taking the time to get the picture of HEZEKIAH Davies. Your kindness is appreciated.
May I copy the photo you took of this headstone to ancestry.com? (Nicholas Young)
Thank you so much.
