Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my various family lines since the 70's when I was helping my grandmother. I have most of my information on Ancestry.com. I am from Clayton/Quincy area of Adams County, Illinois, but am living in Portales, New Mexico currently, while working as faculty for 2 university Social Work Program, a BSW and MSW. I am a licensed clinical social worker/mental health counselor.

My wife and I travel between New Mexico and Illinois/Indiana 1-2 times per year to visit family. I will be adding additional grave sites of family in several cemeteries in the Midwest as we travel.

I will also be working to transfer information from my Ancestry.com tree to Find A Grave as I can make the time.

Capt John Lomax
I am curious where you found the birth date for Capt John. Every where I have looked I come up with him being born in 1812.

Bartlett Asher
I am the grand-daughter of Freeman Walters, the great grand-daughter of William and Lora Alice Walters, the great-great grand-daughter of McDonald Walters, who was the grandson of Bartlett Asher. McDonald's parents were William Walters and Catherine Asher Walters. I do believe we're cousins! I live about 1 mile away from the Eugene Black property which is where the Goss cemetary is and hope to explore it soon. I am presently restoring the farm house William and Lora Alice Walters built in the early 1900's when my grandfather was a small boy. We still manage some of the original farm which was purchased in 1822. I would love hearing anything you might want to share! Thank you-hope to get to know you better! My e-mail is brendalivingston@ymail.com

Dale,
We found george for you. I also took the picture of Ellen who was on the same stone. I dont want to assume they are husband and wife, but probably are.

RE: cemetery plat map
Thanks so much for your very prompt response!
I'm looking for George Hults (died 1923) and his wife, Louisa Jane (died 1945). I had contacted the funeral home there, but they said they would have to locate their records as the 'old' ones were not readily available - I've not heard anything since. Any help you might provide is greatly appreciated...thank you! Thanks so much for the time you commit to this project! Carol Willis

cemetery plat map
Hello,
I noticed you entered several graves located at the Old Westside Cemetery in Clayton, IL. Have you ever located a plat map for that cemetery? I'm trying to find the burial locations for two people, but am not having any luck. They apparently did not have headstones. I appreciate your response even if you do not have any information! Thanks so much, Carol Willis
