|John Robertshaw||Your photo request at East Lawn Cem|
A helpful suggestion for you. If you can help the photo volunteer with the plot location or even just the block location you will have much more success in obtaining the photo you need.
The folks in the cemetery office have a reputation of not helping Find A Grave photo volunteers.
Even difficult for a relative to find a location for their relative in the cemetery.
|Marcy Morris||RE: Benjamin Lewis Wierman|
No, I had no idea he served in the Civil War. That's very interesting. There was never any mention of it in any family records and it wouldn't have occurred to me. Thanks very much for sharing that information. I appreciate it. What kind of pension did a civil war veteran get?
|Jenny E.||RE: Hardy Hill|
Got you! You might want to try the following link:
I got this from a guy I was communicating with about Cincinntai genealogy and I think this might be a link to the University of Cincinnati library. I believe that their law library may have possession of the old Hamilton Co. Probate records. I used this sight to find some local birth/death info (before they were issuing birth/death certificates).

At the top of the info I sent which came from ILGenWeb, I should have typed the following:
77th Illinois Infantry Regiment, Co. B.
Co. B was mostly, if not all, men from Putnam Co., IL. Sorry for the omission.

|HJ||RE: B.F. Wierman|
Sorry, I have no specific military info for B.F.Wierman. I just have his name from a 1920's list of all the veterans in Putnam Co., IL, and they are divided by the cemetery in which they were buried. B.F.Wierman is listed with those buried in Friend's Cemetery, in McNabb, IL. Benjamin Lewis Wierman was the right age to have been a Civil War vet. I have searched two different Civil War date bases and do not find B.F.Wierman. However, I do find B.L.Wierman, who was noted as having resided in Magnolia, IL., in both. I think the initial, "F." was a typo and the newspaper was referring to your Benjamin Lewis Wierman. I will send the info from both Civil War data bases to you via the edit tab on his memorial. Thank you for responding to my query. I just want to make sure all on the old list of Putnam Co. vets are entered here.

The burial report for Hardy Hill does not make reference that Mr. Hill was a doctor. It lists his name as Hardy Wallace Hill born February 24, 1815 in Spencer County, KY. His parent's names are listed as Isaac and Margaret Hill. He died of cholera on May 19, 1849. He was 16 years younger than Dr. Alva Curtis, who "owned" this lot. Maybe he was working with Dr. Curtis or going to take over his practice, as Dr. Curtis was 50 years old when Hardy passed from cholera?

I was at Spring Grove in Section 52 looking for a marker for Mr. Hill. I was able to find Lot 72 with a section map and by looking at markers of those folks buried in lots around #72. This is an old section of this cemetery and the lot markers are worn away and unreadable. Lot 72 has 2 markers in in. Both are illegible/worn from weather. Even a rubbing did not tell me what was on these 2 stones, if anything. Most of this lot is covered by a HUGE pine tree. I took a picture of these stones and can post with memorial, if you'd like. But they do not give you any information about Mr. Hill. According to Spring Grove website, this lot was "owned" by a Dr. Alva Curtis. There are 9 burials here - some appear to be related/his family but most don't seem to have any relation to him. Let me know if you'd like me to post pics.

|Gail Y Owen||RE: George Washington Collins|
Thank you so much for the information! Everything I read only mentioned the one George (jeff), and not the other. So it was both----interesting! I had a young man contact me, from ancestry.com, that is researching the Charleston Riot, and wondered if I knew anything more, in relation to me ancestor. That got me looking a bit. I was trying to figure out which George was involved, and now know that both were, thanks to you.
I'm sure this young man, who is a student at Eastern Illinois University, would love to talk to you! If it's permissable for him to do so, please send me a reply to my email address at: MareGailie@yahoo.com, and let me know how he could contact you, etc.
Yes, I am a relative of both George's too, almost the same as you. George Washington Collins is my 1st cousin, 4 times removed, and George Jefferson Collins, is my 3rd Great Grand Uncle. So, that means we must be related by possibly Aaron Collins, who is my 4th Great Grandfather. Was he your 4th Great Grandfather too? His daughter Francis "Fanny" Collins, is my 3rd Great Grandmother.
I would love to share information with you--if you'd like. You may contact me at my email address: MareGailie@yahoo.com.
Thanks Jim--appreciate everything you do!
