After a long hiatus, I am back searching the cemeteries of central and southern IL looking for ancestors. I always take my camera, but don't have a lot of time. Summer of 2011, I hope to get to Perry, Williamson, and Saline counties. If you have a request, please give a detailed description of who's stone you would like a photo of, ie: Cemetery, Names, dates, plot # if possible. |
Whenever I create a memorial, I try to give as much info as possible about that person. If you find a mistake, please let me know (courteously, of course) and I will make a correction.
---Also, I don't mind anyone using my photos for their own records, but please do not post my photos on other websites (especially Ancestry or other pay to use websites) as your own. I believe in free genealogy & I certainly do not want my work charged for by others!
Surnames that I am researching in Cent. and
South. IL: Patterson, Fouts, Breeze, Copple, Cowgur (Cowger), Gunter, Crabb, Bateman, Noller, Brittain, Just, Kramlich, Cochran, Sieka (Sicka), Schubert, Worden, Nevers, DePontaut, Stein, Geiger, & Kuhn. I am open to exchanging genealogical info on any of these families.
I also would like to thank all the cousins out there that have made contact and contributed information and files for our family on this site.

You may use the Barnes family photos I posted in your own personal genealogical research files. As long as they are not posted elsewhere online (e.g. Ancestry), I have no objections. Thanks for asking.

|Debbie Hurt||King Peter Gunter 1820-1881|
KP Gunter was my 3d gr-grandfather. My grandpa (his grandson, Byron E. Phillips) used to tell me that he WALKED home from Andersonville Prison after the Civil War ended. What a strong will he must've had; I was proud to have come from such strong Christian ancestors. My grandpa was the son of Calvin Rufus Phillips (who was the son of Helen Gunter Phillips and Calvin Washington Phillips) Calvin & Helen Phillips AND Rufus and Mary Phillips are all buried in Somers Cemetery which is about a mile past Dillingham Cemetery (turn on Somers Rd. & go another mile) where Byron (my gpa) Phillips & Verbal Phillips are buried. My father, Gerald Phillips & mother, Virginia Phillips are also buried at Dillingham. Flora Emeretta Gunter Parrigin was divorced from George, but I've never known where George is buried. I knew Flora's son, Elmo Parrigin, my Dad's 2nd cousin. I have a picture of him and Flora together that was taken when he was maybe 7 or 8 yrs. old.
Thanks for the correction on Elizabeth's mother & father. I've updated the memorial accordingly.

|James Ranft||RE: Fay Noller Ranft|
I am the only grand Son not sure who you are but was wonder what your last name is so I can put this all together since my grandma is gone now would even like to visit with you sometime if you are interested.
|Sandra Lennox||Charles Lee Watson|
Thank You for discovering my mistake; Charles Lee Watson/Patience Marston Watson, Burial Hill, Plymouth, Mass.
I do have a copy of the vital records of Plymouth and did not find a second marriage for Elkanah. It does not mean that he didn't remarry, he possibly remarried in a different town. Take Care, Sandy
|Tony Maravia||Brooks Cemetery|
Hi. Looking for a tombstone picture of Celia Pemberton buried in Brooks Cemetery. She has a marker but part of it is buried. Thank-you. Tony
|John Sinks||Ama Woolard|
Actually, you did find and photograph Ama Woolard's tombstone. If you enlarge the picture of the stone with the 1819 birth year you can see two hard to read lines that say
I am interested in your offer to transfer L.B. and Ama's memorials to me, but don't know what all is involved in managing a memorial. I started a word search on "memorial" ad the FAQs and did not find a clear answer in a reasonable time.
