Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently working on the genealogy of those buried in Fillmore Cemetery Douglas Co. Il. If you have any information or interest that you want to share please contact me.

Genealogy has been my back burner hobby since 1978. With work and raising a family time for researching has been rare.

I love the find a grave site. Got a request answered within a week.

Enjoy the e-mails I get from adding a pic for others.

If you find any errors or need to add anything to entries I have made please let me know.

Along the way I have added gravestone info on persons not on my family tree. This because the stone was unique or in danger of being lost forever.

The people who maintain this site are great and are making available much information for us and hopefully future generations.

Phillips headstones & article
BET 1814 AND 1815 War of 1812; Private in Captain James R. Rogers Co., commanded by Colonel William Johnson Note:
From Ellis-Phillips Family History by Kenneth Dicks dated 1976.... "Phillips, Robert was born about 1770 in Virginia. He moved to North Carolina and then to Tennessee. He married Phe(o)be; no record of last name. She was born in Pennsylvania about 1770. They moved to Illinois about 1846 and settled in Moultrie county. The 1850 Coles County census shows them living at Wabash Point, a settlement in southwest Coles Co. in Sec 33, township 12, Range 7. It also gives both of their ages as 77. Wabash Point, like Fullers Point and many other early settlements, went out of existence years ago. We understand that Robert and Phebe had several children but we have only the record of one. That was Micajah, who came to Illinois in 1844 and settled in East Nelson township in Moultrie County. This was two years before his father came to Illinois. Robert served in the War of 1812. I have his service record that was received from the archives in Washington, D.C. It shows that he enlisted September 15, 1814 at Knoxville, Tennessee and was taken September 20, 1814. His residence was stated as being about 40 miles from Knoxville. He was a private in Captain James R. Rogers Co., commanded by Colonel William Johnson. He was mustered out of service May 3, 1815. I have been told that he received a land grant for his service. So far I haven't found any legal record of same. Robert died October 20, 1857 and Phebe died the 30th of April 1858. They are buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery in North Okaw township, Coles County, Illinois. From Paul Fears Wiley letter to David Wiley dated 26 Dec 1969: "Robert was Micajah's father. Both Robert and Micajah were in Andrew Jackson's Army when he fought the Creek Indians. They received land from the government for their military service. Robert died Oct. 20, 1857. Phoebe died April 20, 1858. They were about 80-82 years old when they died, if I recall correctly, so they must have been born during the Revolution. They are both buried at Mt. Zion, but their graves aren't marked. They are buried north of Robert Phillips. (I believe Uncle Paul meant Micajah Phillips. Subsequently a marker was placed on their grave. If I remember correctly Kenneth Dicks spearheaded the drive to provide the stone.) They came to live with Micajah on Aug 3, 185?..

Phillips headstones

How cool is that. And we have a couple more inches of snow this morning.

I will have to look to see where I saw the name of the person who spearheaded putting the stone up.

No doubt Micajah's line.

Thanks again

RE: Katherine Brauner
You made taking the photos so easy! Because you took the time to get the plot numbers, I drove straight to the graves. All I had to do was wait for a day when the mountains of snow had melted.

Best wishes, Suzanne

RE: Nancy A Gardner
That works for me. I'll linked Nancy Willis' memorial to her daughter Mary (Willis) Wharton.

RE: Nancy A Gardner
I would bet money on this being the Nancy Ann Gardner I'm looking for, but I can't be positive. She was a long time resident of Effingham County but both of her husbands died elsewhere and would not have been buried with her.
