RE: Exeter Higher Cemetery
Just checked the card index, it's actually Section ZN plot #36. Although I don't have a map showing the layout of that section, the grave should be easy enough to find if it has a memorial.

RE: New Cypress Cemetery
There are no Heltsley's in either Vol 1 or Vol 2 of the McLean Co Cemeteries. I have put 7 or 8 into find a grave in the last year, so I know there are Heltlsey's in the county. If I can find out who takes care of the Cemetery I will let you know, or if you find out anything let me know and I will go back and hunt it for you. He could be one of the unreadable ones or he could not have a stone.

RE: New Cypress Cemetery
I walked and photographed the cemetery last year. There are several stones that you can not read. The Cemetery was recorded in July 1977 and published into McLean County Cemeteries Volume 2. There is not a Richard Heltsley in the book. If you can get in contact with the Church and find out where he is buried I will go back and look for his stone for you. I made a photo of a sign in the cemetery, I do not know if it has a name of the caretaker or not. Do you have his death certificate that would state he was buried there? The Church should have a platt of the cemetery that should show if he has a stone or not, it is just a matter of finding out who to ask.

Headstone photo you took belongs with another Anna Cook
Thanks for all the wonderful work you do on this site!

Pleae note the photo you took of gravestone for Anna Maria Cook, does not go with the Anna Cook memorial #28401872 as you have put it. According to the dates of birth and death on the stone, it belongs to another Anna Cook on Find A G in the same cemetary.

Have a great day and thanks again for all you do!
