Bio Photo My name is Carol Diane Sellers and I live in salem Il. I just learned about Find A Grave today. I am glad I found this website. I would be glad to help other people get a photo of ancestors graves they was interested in. If anyone needs something in this area send me a request. I am married and have 3 beautiful children and 4 grandchildren. Have done Geneology since 1980 and I love it Happy hunting to all of you. I got some good advice from Max Brown Mayflower Governor of Illinois, I found some really special one of a kind information on a Mayflower Ancester Max told me to not let it die with me, to share it. So I have put it on So I have been going through my books and posting on find a grave and ancestry .com any stories or any photos or documents of everybody I have researched since 1980. Please do the same, if you are reading this. Lets not let this stuff die with us. Our kids might throw it away after we are gone, if they are not interested. Or even their kids, lets preserve any of the past info or pictures for all generations to come Carol Sellers

find a grave
Would you be able to tell me how to contact East Lawn Cemetery? I want to see the marker for my sister, Judith Ann Dixon, is put in the ground not just laid on top of it and I want to visit, perhaps when they do the marker. Thank you, Nancy Dixon Murray

Chasteen & Sellers
Carol, Thank you so much for all your hard work of creating Find A Grave memorials. I have a family tree and your memorials have filled many of my blank spots. The pictures of the people and tombstones are so much appreciated by me.

James Matheny
One more possibility popped up: There is an uncle of Morris Matheny who was also named James. It was in fact the uncle in whose household Edmond Perry was raised, not the brother. I haven't traced any of the uncle's connections yet, but given the age difference, one of his daughters might have married/had an affair with a Rose and then married a Perry and died young, leaving Edmond to be raised by the grandparent, James. I will look into the marriages and family connections for that family group! Thanks for sending the DNA info!

RE: Ezra Rose
No, it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Those things did happen and I expect they still do, though nowadays they just show up on Jerry Springer and slug it out. In fact, Ezra's daughter Dorothy (and this was NOT talked about in the family, I found out by accident) was sweet-talked and seduced by a local man who happened to be already married. When she found herself in trouble, my gg-grandfather came to the rescue and married her, and their first child looked nothing like the rest of the family. (Oops, I guess Ezra is my ggg-grandfather, not my gg-grandfather, I miscounted the generations)

However, I can connect the Matheny family to the Rose family for you. Don't know if it helps, as it wouldn't be the Y-chromosome DNA...
My file shows a Moses Matheny (1804- ) m. Rebecca Phillips. Their son Morris Matheny (1832-1915) m. Mary Ann Rose, and Morris and Mary Ann had at least one son George C. Matheny. Mary Ann Rose was a daughter of William Rose and Mary Martin, and was a sister of Ezra's. James Matheny was the older brother of Morris and might have adopted any children that Morris and Mary Ann were unable to provide for, among other possibilities. For example, possibilities include: Morris and James had a LOT of sisters, one of whom might have married a Rose and died young in childbirth or might have had a relationship with a Rose that resulted in a teen pregnancy. OR James Matheny might have been his wife's second husband and he adopted a child from her first marriage... Living that close in a small community means there were probably lots of intermarriages between the families. I would have to do some more research to check out those other possibilities!

RE: Ezra Rose
Hi, Carol-- yes, Ezra Rose is my gg-grandfather. I do not have a picture of Ezra or his wife Susannah Higgins Rose or of the parents of either. The only person I knew who might have had a picture of them was my great-aunt Mary. Mary and her daughter have both passed away, and I'm not sure whether any of the old pics survived or were passed down to Mary's granddaughter. I sent an email to her and am waiting to hear! I have only managed to find genealogical data on one line among the parents of Ezra and Susannah. (Not William Rose's line, unfortunately.) I will send you a direct email with that, as it is too long for a message here!

RE: Nancy Sellers
This is the only stone in the cemetery that says Sellers, however there are ALOT that are unreadable so Phoebe and William may be in there.

RE: Irvin Lee Memorial
Carol, I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner but over the last 2 years there has been many changes in my life which included losing my husband of over 30 years in November of 2012. I have up dated Irvin Lee's memorial for you by adding his parents links. Sorry it has taken me so long.
