Bio and Links
I started with Bush family information a few years ago when my cousin,Jim Bush,gave me my great grandparents (Bush) family bible.

Jim Died March 15, 2011 Memorial #66947928

In 2010 I decided to put my second cousin's, Dale Newton, work on the Newton family from Edgar County Illinois on the computer. He used a typewriter.

Dale died February 17, 2014 Memorial #125335998

Findagrave, and connecting with CCurry sent me off in all directions. Photographed and posted the balance of the Newton Cemetery in Edgar County Illinois. James and Jemima Thornton Newton are my great great grandparents.

In November of 2010 a post from Donna lead me to "discover" the Adams/Bush/Legg Cemetery. I found my Bush gg grandparents Bush there. Since then taking and posting pictures from many cemeteries has been my goal to help other with their ancestors.

Several small cemeteries in Edgar County Illinois and Vermillion County Indiana had not been detailed on findagrave so it was and continues to be a great adventure.

Thank you for the heads-up on the December 25 date of death for the above! I can see the 25th on the headstone. And one part of the death certificate is a toss-up, but the date it was signed was December 25.

I was at Old Union Cemetery on June 24, 2016, but was looking more that day for the Babb family.

John Rusell's Parents: William and Jane
Hi, the Indiana Death Certificates are now on, and on John Russell's death certificate, it lists his parents as William Russell and Jane Slater (not John Russell and Sarah Hendrickson).

Thanks so much for the info. I finally found her death record which listed her parents. Apparently Shaw was from a previous marriage, but at this point I can't even be sure of that.

Do you have the marriage date. I know they were married in 1900 because she was on the 1900 census with Joseph. Would love to have a copy of the document with the correct date for my files.

Thanks so much. I have only had one that refused use of their headstone pictures. So sad since it wasn't even their relative. With Find A Grave I have been able to locate lots of relatives I never knew existed. Thanks again for your pictures. Wanda Pierce Johnson

You have the headstone photo at Sugar Grove Church Cemetery, Kidley, Edgar County, Illinois, USA for my 3rd cousin.
Find A Grave Memorial# 66557815 is for Lola A Campbell.
Would it be ok to use your photos on my family tree? I will include (Find-a-Grave photo & permission by J.S. Bush) for each photo I use.

Found his brothers obit (Allen Bonebrake) but I'm not a member. It is in the clintonian (Clinton, Indiana) Saturday, July 18, 1936 and says he is buried in Trowbridge, I think. The rest is not clear.
