Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Murphysboro, Jackson County, Ill. After retiring from teaching, I became involved in genealogy and then almost everything concerning Murphysboro and its people.

I am most proud of my virtual cemeteries, especially the one honoring the teachers and staff of the Murphysboro school system.

Through it all, Find A Grave has been an enormous help. Because of it, I have made new acquaintances and friendships. I am especially thankful for my friendships with Laura Whistle Cates Duncan and Cecil Saul.

My edit tab is missing. Please send me any changes to my email. Thank you.

Robert J. Morgan #110361654

Could you please take your note off Bobby's memorial about his wedding date not being married on Sept. 30, 1967. He was my brother-in-law for years, and he and his wife were married Sept. 30, 1967 not Oct. 30th. I have their marriage announcement if you need to see it.
Thank you,
Gail Helton

Hi Ann - here's a Murphysboro AREA school teacher that you don't have in your V.C.

She may have taught in the rural schools, and not be eligible, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of her.

Best wishes,

Anna L Wood
On 6 July, you asked me to edit my memorial for Anna L. wood. After looking at it, a duplicate with better information, including a spelling of Woods instead of Wood exists that links up with Louis Fricke #76243960 and her mother Mary Jacquot Fricke Rodd 3124029447. In view of that I bowed to the more complete version and deleted my memorial.

Thank you for the edit for Thomas. He was buried by the county because no family was found. I've transferred him to you, so glad that some one cared and knew something about him.
