|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.
I am actively working on a number of cemeteries: Mt. Horeb, in Adams Co.; Old Augusta & Woodlawn near Augusta; Rosemont, Irwin, St. Mary, 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 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. If you contact me, please state the cemetery which is concerned - that would help alot - thanks.
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

Patricia was my third great grandmother. Would you like more information on additional family members and gravesites to link? Thank you for the picture--a very interesting stone.
|Deanna Martin||Margie Nooner Bell Ford|
Would you like me to transfer her to you? She's no relation to me, that I am aware of anyway... :)

Connie, thank you so much for all the work you did and sharing with us. Both my Mother and Father along with many of their relatives are buried there. Many thanks.........
I have requested it be made a cenotaph and will include links to the other memorial when I find it. Note that anyone can request a memorial be made into a cenotaph :) May have to just show where the burial is actually located. Thanks!

Hi, Connie. A picture has been placed on your Gerald Clark memorial (# 86443637) that does not belong there. The dates on the top picture (1953 - 2000) are all wrong and the person who put it there cannot be contacted due to health concerns. If you leave it, that's find with me. I have a different person of the same name I'm doing a memorial for!

His death date is actually 1962, not 1955.
Thank you so much for the headstone picture for Amos Curtis.
Hannah and Elijah Morris. I am puzzled and very grateful. First wish to thank-you for your hard work on adding Elijah's headstone. I am puzzled that you state you added Hannah's and I can't find it.
I have to different death dates for Hannah so was so excited to see an e-mail that you added it. I hope it is a computer problem or Find A Grave problem.
Anyway, thanks for his headstone and for taking time out of your day to do the task.
