|I have always felt at peace when walking through a graveyard. I look at the different stones and try to imagine what these people were like and how they lived. I have been doing my family tree for about 20 years now and am always looking for connections to my family line.|
Some of the surnames I am researching are PRIEST, HAINES, ULERY, HUFFMAN, TURPIN, ELSEA, EADOR, BILLINGS, RIGNEY, WEBB, BERRY, HANKS. If any of these names sound familiar please contact me.

I checked and I thinkd the Shelton cemetery with the two memorials does need to be deleted becaus the other Shelton cemetery has over 200 Memorials in it. Thank Vicki
I have "Priest" ancestors born in Virginia. Have you found any from there? Right now I am trying to find something on William Priest, born in Virginia in about 1809. He was married to Sarah Holtzclaw Payne in Fauquier Co., Virginia. Thanks for your time. Kay

This Mrs. Holbrook was my grandmother. Grandpa taught at the high school. Dad graduated from DHS, as did his Fenwick cousins!

|Deborah Jane Kline||RE: the 2 Anderson cemeteries near Palmer, Illinois|
Thank you very much. I didn't catch this until I searched for all of the cemeteries in Christian County. When I can block some time, I will try to take this on.
|Deborah Jane Kline||the 2 Anderson cemeteries near Palmer, Illinois|
It is very confusing, but these 2 cemeteries should not be combined; they are 2 separate cemeteries - one on the east side of Palmer, Illinois called just plain Anderson, and one on the west side of Palmer just north of Morrisonville called Traylor or Thomas Anderson. I originally made the same mistake, trying to go to the Anderson cemetery that is east of Palmer to try to find my Kline relatives, but was told at the Christian County Genealogical Society that there are 2 cemeteries that include the Anderson name, the one on the east side of Palmer that is just named Anderson, and the one on the west side of Palmer that is Traylor Anderson, but the sign says just Thomas Anderson. Fortunately, our relatives on in Traylor Anderson because that cemetery is very well kept and easy to get to. The plain Anderson cemetery is in a cow pasture, more difficult to find and get to, and was completely overgrown when I was there in a July. I hope that helps.
|Deborah Jane Kline||the correct cemetery for the Priests|
Hello. I believe you have your memorials in the wrong cemetery. I realize that the cemetery where you took these photos has a sign that just says the Anderson Cemetery but according to the Christian County Genealogical Society, it is actually the Traylor Anderson Cemetery, and the Anderson Cemetery is on the opposite of Palmer, Illinois from the Traylor Anderson one. According to the Christian County Cemetery Inscription Book, Vol. I, these people are in the Traylor Anderson Cemtery. I have been to both, and the plain Anderson one is in a cow pasture, difficult to get to, and overgrown. Please check out the signs that have been posted for each of these cemeteries and see if the Traylor Anderson one doesn't match where you took these photos. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Would you have any information on Jackson's sister, Sarah? I lost track of her in 1860 after she remarried to John Painter.
