|Bio and Links|
I am an Endicott on both my mother's side and my father's side, so I am particularly interested in the Endicott line. My other lineage includes many Hons and Clevelands, from in and around southern Illinois and Indiana, though it does seem that these two branches had many persons who lit out for Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California. That pioneer stock were adventurous souls!|
I occasionally locate and photograph other headstones in cemeteries in White County, Illinois, and try to accommodate photo requests if possible. I also enjoy linking parents and children whenever I can.
I am happy to transfer any memorial to closer relatives at any time. You are free to use any photographs I have posted on the memorials, but please give credit. Thanks!

.....are you related to the Adams of Mill Shoals? I was very good friends with Beatrice way back when.
|W. Pollard||HI AGAIN CAMIAN|
Hope this finds you well.
Again I look to a satellite image of the old cemetery that had been "lost". The newest one is of this year! It may be easy to find because it appears that the tress have been removed in the general vicinity. If you're so inclined take a look at the Cravens Cemetery sat image here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=crMap&CRid=105294
Just to the north you can see a county road marked "000n". This is the Wayne/White counties line. At the end of the gravel paved road to the west is where my grandparents lived. Not sure who lives there now. But just before you get to that homestead and just to the north of the road you can see an area cleared of trees that is in sort of the shape of Florida. This area used to be nothing but trees and rather thick at that. As a kid I used to squirrel hunt right there and there is a cemetery in the area just off the road a bit on the crest and side of a small hill. Maybe they found it while clearing trees? Or maybe they cleared it because there is a cemetery there? I don't know. But I hope they did not clear it to farm and thus obliterating it altogether. I think it would thrilling for someone to find it and record it for posterity.
Now, beyond the homestead the road continues unpaved. Almost to the end of that road and just to the north you will see another swath of trees almost rectangular in shape. There was a log cabin there, of which, it's remnants were practically completely gone when I was a child. The first time I was shown it by my grandfather was in 1968. When we returned in 1971 it was pretty much gone and very difficult to locate. There is also a very few graves in there with sandstone markers which most assuredly are gone or nearly gone by now. I don't remember the surname(s) but there were perhaps just 3-5 graves there. Sad.
I'm pretty sure you know of Antioch on county road 2550E. There used to be a church and one room school house there. My GF Floyd taught and my dad and his sisters went to school there when they were kids. I believe the buildings are gone now. There is a well maintained cemetery there as well. It is still in use I believe.
HAPPY HUNTING! I do appreciate all of your efforts and contributions. I wish there were more people like you and a one "SusieQ" that has contributed many fotos of headstones in area cemeteries.

Thanks for pointing this out. I deleted mine and suggested to the other one that cemetery records and death certificate list her as "Kathleen"

Would you please verify that I put the right pics with the right people. Wilson Ozment 118865994 and his wife Jennie 118866044. The stone doesn't match your records exactly. I will remove if I am wrong, just let me know. Thanks
|Lori Ellen Robb Martina||Frank R and Kate Brown|
These 2 are buried in a plot with children. I think that they are theirs. Frank R # 106998449 and Kate # 107002835 I included a plot pic on their memorials.
|John Christeson||Gravestone Photo|
Could you upload a copy of the photo on the memorial for Howard Christeson 107982652 to that of his wife Patricia A. Christeson 163942712?

Hello, I have made your requested changes to the Endicott memorials. Thank you!

When Resurrection opened it was initially referred to as the new Sts Peter and Paul, but the name is Resurrection. The old Sts P&P is still open for burials, too.

Hi, I am familiar with both cemeteries as I live in the same city and have relatives in both. There are 3 Idas buried in St Louis, two in Sts P&P and one in Resurrection. The archdiocese website has the 3 Ida's listed and the death certificate, which I posted also has Ida's burial location in Sts P&P. Perhaps you are mixing up the three ladies?
