Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have just recently started searching for our family histories. We are retired now and have some extra (?) time on our hands and we like to do this together. There are a lot of old cemeteries in Southern Illinois and it is a challenge to find some of them. We eat lunch with seniors several times a week and there is a wealth of information to be obtained from them.

Crossroads Cemetery
Simpson
Johnson County
Illinois

Hi Ray & Sylvia,

I have submitted an obituary for Roger that was provided by Faye Morris Bowman.

My gg-grandmother Tircy Freeman Triplett (1792-1862) and her daughter Mary E. Triplett Ragains (1823-1862) are buried in Kerley Cemetery in the Flatwoods section of Johnson County. My wife and I visited Kerley Cemetery and nearby Abbott (aka Morris and Morse) Cemetery in June 2013.

I am especially interested in James Moffit Triplett (1798-1885), my gg-grandfather, whose grave I am unable to find anywhere. Also, any other Tripletts you come across in southern Illinois would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,
Moved Jean's memorial to Pope County. Thanks for the correction. Thought you might like management, so I have also transferred the memorial to you.

Thank you so very much for your attempts to locate Jane Barnwell's marker. It is a shame that some of our folks could not afford markers and their spots are bare; therefore it is special that you took a photo of the location of her grave so that there is a place to "visit". It means a lot to me to have it. Again thank you for being such kind and caring people. May you be blessed in the remainder of your years with many wonderful cemetery finds. Nancy
