I have always been fascinated by the history of just about anything; antiques, houses, people. That has led me to cemeteries more than once. I also enjoy seeing unique grave monuments in cemeteries, especially those built in the Victorian era. Many people find this a peculiar part of my personality. I don't know when I first realized that I liked to go through graveyards as a recreation but I think it has something to do with the fact that I pratically lived right next door to the Millington Cemetery in Illinois at my grandma's house. And since then I have bought a digital camera I have been able to make many photo contributions to this site. If you have relatives' or friends' graves and they are close to where I live, I would be glad to photograph them if you can't.|

|Traci's Mom||Token you left for Traci Fields|
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. Also, thanks for your caring, kind words. Traci was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.
I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.
I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!
This is something I wrote for Traci:
It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.
As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.
I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"
Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

Could I please use this photo for my family tree and are there any other Owen graves near this one at Millington Cemetery?
I see that you submitted a photo of this cemetery to Find A Grave. I am wondering if on one of the signs at that entrance there you saw a telephone number for a contact for the cemetery. I have a great, great, great grandmother buried there...I think. She was Ann Miller, 1808-1856, wife of Jacob W. Miller. There is a grave for someone by that name, but I need more info, if possible. I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks

Hi - I noticed you photographed the gate for the Sheridan Cemetery at Find A Grave. Do you know if that is the only cemetery in Sheridan? The reason I ask is I am trying to find the burial place for George A. Law and his wife, Margaret. George's death record says he was buried at Sheridan. They are my cousins. Gloria
|Dr. Robert H. Badgley||Anthony Badgley Newark Millington Cemetery|
Thanks for the photo of Anthony Badgley's monument. I appreciate receiving it. Is there any process I could use to make the inscription a bit more readable?
Dr. Robert H Badgley
You took a photo of his headstone and posted on here. I was just wondering if you happened to know him? Just curious.

I found a picture on the record for Hiram W. Bartram, 48825400, that you uploaded to it. The name on the headstone pictures is for a Edward W. Miller - why; what is the connection between the two.
