Hey, this is my husband's gpa, and we are wondering if you are related to the yocom's, because my son's grave is also listed on this site, and he was still born. Are you part of the family or the genealogical society.? Thanks carey

Hi Andrew -
Thank you for the name!
Malissa E. Kelley died as an infant (from 1876 Sangamon Co. History). On the stone, her death date looks like Mar 30, 1852. Somewhere (I'm still looking!), before seeing the stone, I found a transcription stating that she died at age 11 months, and 9 days. It is this information that I used to calculate her birth date. 1851 as a birth date fits the birth order of Jonathan and Sarah (Cook) Kelley's children, as listed in the 1876 History.
The stone itself is badly worn, and it is difficult to read the info on it. If you are in the area, you might want to revisit the cemetery and check the info on her stone, especially her age at death.
As for now, I see no reason to change her birth or death dates. Based on research on the Kelley family (I am distantly related through Nancy Sims who married Elisha Kelley, son of Henry Kelley, the Revolutionary War veteran), the dates posted at Find A Grave are consistent with the available data.
If you revisit the cemetery and check out the stone again, I will be happy to revise the information. In fact, you might want to post an accurate transcription of the stone along with your photo. It would be very helpful.
Thanks for your interest. I appreciate people who keep us all honest.

You left a message for me entitled "Birthday", asking that I "check the date on her stone". However, your message does not mention whose stone to check!
Could you be so kind as to go to the memorial that might have an error, then click "edit" and "suggest a correction." That way, I will know where to look.

Do you have any family connections to Levi Yocum who you created a memorial for? I am interested in the family of my ancestor Mary "Polly"Adams Garrigus Yocum and Francis B. Yocum who are buried at Billtown. I know that Francis B. Yocum and his father John William Yocum does not have a gravestone. I am wondering if any of their other family and/or descendants does. Levi Yocum must be a descendant. Francis and Mary's children were: Mary Yocum who died in 1850. Rachel M. Yocum who married Samuel Potter Webster, but Samuel Potter Webster is buried at Webster Cemetery in Parke, so she may be also although another source says she is at Billtown, Armilda Amanda Yocum who married a Zimri Brackney are suppose to be buried at Billtown. I didn't check to see if any Brackney's were at Billtown. Will do that when I sign off. Any help you can give me is appreciated. Jim

Hi - Oak Ridge is humongous so if you will call their office (217-789-2340)and get his Block and grave numbers, it would be very helpful. Just let me know and I will attempt to find him.
