|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!

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?

I see Fern passed away last November. She and Albert were very nice people. Distant relatives of mine and Pollard family friends.
I see in her obit Peg Harris is still alive. She and her husband Ray were also distant relatives and friends of the Pollard family. I do remember something of Ray passing but cannot remember when that was.

This map shows the CRAVENS PLOT. The other I speak of is on road marked 000N. It's about 1/2 way toward the dead end and just maybe 20 years into the trees to the north. If you go to the house at the end of the road (my old grandparents place) the people living there now MIGHT be able to tell you. That is IF they even know one is there. The land it's on used to be owned by the Vaught family. Not sure if they still do. If they do I'm sure they know exactly where it is. I have not been there in decades so I'm of little help.
|W. Pollard||RE: LIBERTY VS BURNT PRAIRIE|
I see now that the CRAVENS one is. Many entries. I used to have many, many fotos of it before it was cleaned up. Not sure I still have them.
The other I have no idea what it was called. It's very old and even years ago was hard to find. I did find a stone by accident while squirrel hunting. The marker read "KENNEDY"...a female as I remember.
|W. Pollard||LIBERTY VS BURNT PRAIRIE|
As I know the lore is Burnt Prairie, Il. was once known as "Liberty". Is the Liberty Cemetery the same as the Burnt Prairie Cemetery?
BTW...I also know of 2 others nearby that used to be completely overgrown. As a kid I would go to them and pull back all the honeysuckle and upright what stones I could.
One is right off I-64 on the road toward "Antioch Cemetery". It's known as the Craven Family Cemetery. The family has since cleaned it up and marked it.
The other is VERY old and difficult to find. But It is on the right side of the road on the dead end road that leads to the old Pollard farm.
If you don't know of these and you need sat images of the locations I can help with that. Let me know.
OH, and there is another that I'm not so sure can be found anymore. MIRACLE family cemetery. Last I saw it was sadly being trampled by hogs in the middle of a field.
