|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in genealogy and loved walking through cemetery's. While doing my family tree I found this site. |
My husband is a great help to me since my main cemetery interest is in Land Between the Lakes on the Southern end. People were forced out of the area by the government to make it a public recreation area. Most of the cemeteries in the area can be traced back to the 1800's. The cemeteries have been neglected and vandalized.
Interest in Briggs, Cox, Wilks, Amster, Kent, Sykes,Sikes, Wofford, and Russell.
Any of my personal family photo's I have decided to share on this site are NOT to be downloaded for any reason.
If I take a photo for you, you don't need my permission to download it and use it however you see fit.

I visited Silver Lake Cemetery today and found that most of the area's stones are toppled. I do not want to leave a more detailed message in public, so please email me with your email address so I can give you more info. Thanks, TimV

Sure, and I forgot to answer "yes" to your using the Daniel Purnell photo. If there's a place for a photo credit, put "Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest. And please let me know if you find any family members with info on Daniel and Carrie.

Intrepid photo volunteer Dave was able to find a picture for Robert in his archives and has posted it for you.

Dot, thanks for your note. Do you know any of their direct descendants? I did post one photo on his F-A-G page.

Here in Oak Park, Illinois, we are doing some research on the families of Carrie Garling and Daniel Purnell, and would be interested in any period photos of them, or information you may be able to provide. We are trying to figure out the first owners of a local historic home, who may have been the Garling-Purnells. I hope to hear from you.

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.
Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772
Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

They are all listed in Odd Fellows Cemetery in Girardville, Schuylkill Co., Pa. Photo up. All are on one stone not far from Mary. *It's location would be about half way up from main entrance lane to small walking path on your LEFT. (This path seperates upper and lower sections of cemetery, there are two other sections on the other side of entrance lane for a total of four). *Along this path halfway in on your RIGHT is the kneeler w/J. Purnell on it. A flat stone is above this w/all the names. Mary is several rows above them in this UPPER section as well. As far as I know all the names are transcribed for this cem but not all are photographed. There is one Stratton listed married to a Strong. That one I know is also located LOWER section LEFT and closer to entrance lane than the others. Strong I think is in with Sanger where walking path begins. Blass is across this path, see photos. Best I can do, I don't have map or rows. It's basically square, divided into four sections, two upper, two lower seperated by one lane in, several walking paths to either side in each section. Hope that wasn't too confusing. Check cem/other photos/names mentioned, it might help a little.

No problem. There are at least 7 or 8 others I photographed fairly close to her all on one stone that might interest you as well.

|CL Hileman||Jerome Provo|
Hello! Update on Jerome.. confirmed burial of Jerome in Jonesboro. My photo request in Jonesboro Cemetery has produced his grave and headstone, as family expected to find there! Now just have to advise the Civil War Commission they can update their records on this brave soldier so others looking for him in Fort Donelson will know where to find him! Thanks again for your help! Much appreciated!
|CL Hileman||RE: Jerome Provo|
You are so right, there were many mass graves due to the number of soldiers slaughtered in the time of war. However, Jerome was the grandchild of my ggg grandparents and their family bible and photos of his grave, in his home town of Jonesboro, are proof enough he wasn't buried in Fort Donelson. Their records and that of the town news paper "The Jonesboro Gazette" substantiated this.
"James Provo Sr. and neighbor CH Willaford, the town undertaker, traveled to Fort Donelson, recovered the body of Jerome, brought him home and buried him in Jonesboro. He was 18 years 6 months and 20 days old." The others that died alongside Jerome may in fact be buried in that mass grave. May they Rest In Peace!
