I was born in 1939 in Muskegon, Michigan. I have been fasinated by cemeteries forever, my girlfriend and I have checked out cemeteries in all our travels. I started riding motorcycles in 1949 and it makes it real easy to travel through cemeteries which we do all summer.
Belcher Hi Phil, just got your message as I had to get a different internet connection and have not been online for a few months. First, I do not have Louise Belcher's death record. Your maiden name interests me because the main family I am researching is Moore, particularly in Franklin County, IL. Do you know what county she was born, married and lived in? Her age? The name of her husband? You might try contacting the Union County Courthouse Telephone: (618) 687-7300 and ask for the circuit clerks office. If she does not have the records for the state hospital, perhaps she can guide you to a department that does have them or to the hospital itself. I believe the hospital is back in operation but perhaps under the name of the Bowen Center. Good luck in your search. Carla
