Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

James C. Taylor, Rosamond Grove Cemetery
Hello Rev Sims
Are you able to decipher the age of James C. Taylor from your photograph? If possible, I would very much appreciate knowing his age, at the time of death. Many thanks. RLM

RE: MARGARET ELIZABETH PONSLER WILLIAMS
Thank you. Do you have information on the two children then? My e-mail is waughtel33@gmail.com as I don't have much of anything on them. I just recently found the last lost sister and have all my great grandmother's family together now.

James Hoverstock headstone request
Greetings,

WCCPS has a photo from Westlawn Cemetery that I was going to upload to fulfill this headstone request, but I'm not sure it's the same person.

The dates on the stone, as much as they can be read, match the dates on the memorial page, and the parents' initials match, but the name on the headstone is not James, it's John.

Do you know if this would be the correct person? Were the names James and john both used for this individual, or are we looking at two different individuals?

I'll be happy to upload the photo if you believe it's the same person. Please let me know your thoughts.

Durbin Cemetery
Reverend,

I'm a new member of findagrave and noticed that you had received some requests for photos of the Durbin Cemetery. My great grandfather Joseph Hiram Durbin is buried there and several other kin. I drove out there today looking for the cemetery but was unsuccessful in finding it. The address I used was 780 N 1800 East Rd, Owaneco, IL 62555. I don't know how far off the road nor what direction from the above address the cemetery might be. I'd like to revisit there when the fields dry up a bit but hopefully before the crops are planted. Any assistance is appreciated. I live an hour and a half away in Marville so would like to have a better idea of the location before I visit next.

P.S. In my search, a Durbin cemetery in Palmer, IL was also listed. Do you know anything about that cemetery? I read a historical news article that mentioned Joseph was Christian County Coroner and lived in Palmer. I fear I may have looked for his grave in the wrong location.
