Bio and Links
I'm a hobby genealogist who has been working since about 1990. I'm in the process of writing books about the McKee line of my family and I hope to publish soon.

The McKee family moved from Irland to the United States in the 1830's. They eventually all gathered on farms around Sparta in Randolph County, Illinois. Children of the migration generation grow up in the area. By the 1900's they begin to scatter all across the United States. Few family members are left in the area today.

Pam, you are most welcome! It was a nice day and I decided to drive up with my camera! My grandparents and my great-grandparents and my gg-grandparents are in that cemetery, along with a lot of cousins, etc.and one day I will be resting with them.

RE: Costa Memorial
You are most welcome. It was my pleasure. I also uploaded the photo to her husband's memorial, that I created. If you'd like management, please ask.

RE: Hazel Deppe #67450296
Yes, it was in the Percy Village Cemetery or the IOOF, same cemetery by the way. I looked for Hazel and thought I searched the whole cemetery too. The next time I was out there looking for another grave I found Hazel's. You get lucky sometimes and sometimes you don't.

RE: Hazel Deppe #67450296
Thank You. My relationship is through Virginia Mae Putney (1926 - 2008) marrying Clifford Earl Deppe (1915 - 1998). Virginia was my Dad's cousin and we provided her with some pictures of her father, Alva Claude Putney. She only had a couple pictures of him and we had some decent old pictures.

I was surprised to find Grace Deppe Brewer's marker at Springdale Cem. in Peoria, IL. I thought the Deppe's lived in Galesburg. Somehow that led to your memorial for Hazel and I got confused about the picture. I hope you can find out where she's buried.

Hazel Cliff Leary Deppe
Pam, A picture of Hazel Cliff Leary's headstone was added to your Find A Grave page for her on 4-7-2013, so the place where she is buried is marked with a stone. You could ask the person who submitted the picture in which cemetery she took the picture - just to ease my confusion. Thank You.

Caledonia, Sparta
The gal I talk to at City Hall has been on vacation, and it's been a bit crazy around here, so I'm still waiting to hear from them : I have it on my calendar to call them Monday and see what they decided!

There will be a cemetery committee meeting in Sparta on May 28th and our little problem has been added to the list of things to discuss. I'll let you know what I find out after the meeting! Stephanie

OK - took a lunch break and went back to City Hall with the list from the library in hand. Based on other names on the same page in the old listing, the last name, and the name of Ella, I have found which lot the burial is supposed to be in and I will be stopping by on my way home! Keep your fingers crossed :)
