made additions to memorial per your info - just happened to notice his mother was buried Swan Cemetery, Indiana, while you had him born Swan Creek, Ohio - rather odd?? There was no Swan Creek listed, but was a Swanton, so put that but also a note about Swan Creek.
Lydia is linked to Orman, Almon, and Ambrose.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. There was an error on the list I used to double check the dates.
|Richard Boyer||RE: Ewing Rhoads (Rhodes)|
I put his wife, E. Christine, under the last name Rhodes.
|Matthew Harmon||Nelson & Mary Butler Gaafield|
They had another child His name is Eli.
He is buried in Old Colony in Granville. I discovered this in a census record where they lived on Outville Rd. Nelson (the identified son) attended the Weslyian church on Weslyian Church Rd. While Eli married Lydia and ended up on Goose lane in Granville Township. They were deacon and deaconess of the Granville Presbyterian church. I have Nelson comming from Oneida county NY. The census records reveal his mother came from Maine and his father from New York. Why is there no record for Nelson since he is buried at Gaafield.
|Judy Oldiges||RE: Mary Swonger|
I checked Logansville cemegTery as well and also The Kennedy funeral home records etc. and there was not another Mary Swonger in that cemetery, only in the MOORE CEMETERY
|Judy Oldiges||Mary Swonguer|
Hi - Mary is actually listed in the Moore cemetery, which is outside of Logansville. It is about 8 mi. from me and I will get over there after the weekend if I can.

Mr. Dallaire is buried in Garden of Prayer #1. There are 6 Gardens of Prayer at this cemetery.
|Richard S. Clark||Forgus Graham|
For a little background, Hickory Point Cemetery was adjacent to the Hickory Point Presbyterian church. The church disbanded after the Civil War, due to the loss of many of their young men (and thus their future) to the war. The remaining membership divided between existing Kirkwood and Monmouth churches. Nearly everyone buried there were Presbyterian, many with ties to either the Washington county, PA or Greene county, OH areas. A majority of the burials occurred there after the church disbanded. No one seems to know if burials at the cemetery were recorded or controlled by anyone after the church disbanded.
By Illinois state law, it is the responsibility of local townships to maintain abandoned cemeteries. Except for a few quick passes with a tractor each year, little is done to Hickory Point. There are evident signs of mower damage to many of the remaining markers. The cemetery is small - perhaps only about an acre or less is size.
There appears to be no headstone record for Forgus Graham. The Warren County (IL) Genealogical Society read the area cemeteries and published their findings during the 1980's. The only Graham headstone that they found at that time was for his son, Frank. Obviously, they missed the one for Forgus's wife, Hannah. It may have been overgrown or buried, as I found another headstone at the site that they missed, as it was buried about 10 inches below grade (probably overgrown that much since it was tipped over). I do know that years ago, there was a pile of broken headstones at the south-east corner of the cemetery, but those have all since disappeared. Hopefully, those were recorded by the genealogy society. About 10 years ago, I spent several hours photographing every headstone that I could find at the cemetery, only to find later that my daughter had messed with the camera settings (for night photos), and all of my photos were washed out and unreadable. Every spring since, I have hoped to get back there and take more photos, before it gets too overgrown, but have not made it yet.
I created a spread sheet based on several available sources for burials at this cemetery, as there are a number of graves without markers. I now have a list of about 150 burials there, of which about 20 had no known marker as of the 1980's readings. The only source I list in my spreadsheet for Forgus was the record of Turnbull funeral home of Monmouth (another early family in Warren county, from Greene county, OH with Presbyterian ties). If he is buried near his son, as is likely, it would probably be along the western side of the cemetery. I'm sorry I could not be of more help.
