|Bio and Links|
When I was small and would spend the day with my grandparents, I was not allowed to cross the street. I could, however, go along with my friend Bonnie,(and her little dog, "Willie") around the block to Rosemont in Plymouth, Illinois. This started my interest in the stones as art; the history of the people in my community, and my love of cemeteries and their preservation.|
Now that I live in my grandparent's house, I realize she only had to look out her back window for a fine view of the cemetery -- clever grandma!
Tim Coplin and I did mapping and a complete photocataloging of all the stones in the Old Macomb (Illinois) Cemetery. Tim also made a map of the cemetery.
My daughter and I have plans to photograph and catalog several cemeteries. It just takes much more time than we had anticipated. We are actively working on a number of cemeteries: Mt. Horeb, in Adams Co.; Old Augusta & Woodlawn near Augusta; Rosemont, Irwin, all near Plymouth and Bowen all in Hancock Co.; Scott and Old Macomb in McDonough Co., and Round Prairie (Schuyler Co.)also near Plymouth,IL.
We are on the final stretch of several of these. Eventually, we would like to work in the St. Mary Cemetery, which is just a few miles north of Plymouth.
We live on the convergence of Hancock, McDonough, and Schuyler Counties in Illinois and are only a short distance to the Adams Co. line. This is an area that many pioneers passed thru or stopped over for a few years before continuing West.
Please let me know if any of my entries need additions/corrections/deletions or if you want to assume management of an entry. If I can help in anyway, please let me know.
Happy graving to all. Connie

You are more than welcome. Most of those I post I do not personally know or are not related too so it is great to find someone who does. Have a good week!
|Shirley Honaker||RE: Clarence and Minnie Evans|
I'm related to Minnie Myrtle Newingham. I didn't know the Evans, but research the Newingham family. Minnie's grandfather Elijah Newingham is my ggrandfather.
Thanks for your help.
|George DeKay||RE: Jeffries|
As you can see from the memorial there were 15 children from that union. For how many of them might you be able to provide stone pics?
I haven't tried to follow any of these children but I could if you gave me some leads, particularly if they are buried in the same area as the parents.
That way I could obtain the dates, spouses, etc.
more easily. That branch of the tree is sort of way out!
Thank you for adding the photos to this memorial.

Hi, Can you double check Z.T. Bickford death date., buried at Round Prairie Cemetery in Schuyler Co. It is entered here as 1846, but in ancestry.com it is shown as 1946.
