|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!

|Beverly & Gregg||Thank you for the transfer|
Thanks so much for transferring my Great Great Grandmother, Emma Augusta Haynes Franklin #108427294 to my management. I appreciate your work on these and will maintain them to the best of my ability.
My grandmother just passed away in November 2016 at the age of 95 years old, her notes have quite a few family members buried in the Wolf Creek Cemetery. Now my goal is follow up and find the records needed to make sure they are indeed buried there as I think some do not have memorials made yet.
Thank you again for the transfer.

I submitted the changes because Earl was my Uncle.
I finally came up with a solution for Florence that I liked and that linked to her other memorial and listed marriages and children. I have requested links from the other two children so those should happen soon. I'm transferring back to you. Let me know if you have questions.

Thank you - I will double check my 'William Cross' es' Celia
|Celia Carroll||Birthplace for William Cross 1784-1863|
hello Ms. Endicott, If you are interested, I invite you to check the birthplace for William Cross, 1784 - 1863. I have several sources in my Ancestry tree, 'Green Jones Gilliland Slaton listing his birthplace as Sussex County Virginia, not England, as in your entry for him (109750275). The family has a fascinating, trace-able history with their entry into the colonies with General Bradford:
William Cross was born in 1735 in Lydney, Gloucestershire. "Came to USA in 1755 with General Braddock's Army to take part in the French & Indian War. Wounded in the same battle that killed Gen. Braddock." Married to Elizabeth __. Farm was near Roanoke. (James Cross' Find-A-Grave Memorial 5345712)" He had one son with Sarah Cocke on June 1, 1759. He died in May 1798 in Sussex, Virginia, at the age of 63.

.....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.
William R. Pollard
