John Landis
John Landis born in PA in 1814 is buried in the Littlejohn cemetery and wondered if you have any knowledge of his parents name? Do you have a photo of his grave? Thank you so much. If I can look up any grave in the Portland, OR area, please let me know.

Hi Jan,

My name is Jody. I would love to connect to share research on Ira Coney and Mary Ellen Meeker both at rest in Freeman Cemetery, Fulton county, IL. I am interested in restoring the cemetery and would love to find the best resource for acquiring Freeman cemetery records. It appears there was a church on the site at one time. I'm starting with the Funeral homes in Lewistown and Astoria and Ipava IL. Best wishes, Jody

To anyone that left a message here in the past. I lost most of my information I had stored after I became ill & was in a hospital for some time. I lost the password for my old account due to being in the hospital & having memory loss from it. Sorry if I never responded. Jan Smith

Hi Jan,

I think you and I have entered the same person. I found her marker with the name Sollenberger mem# 94061700 and you have her under Brown with her maiden name as Sollenberger mem#61815592. If you concur, let me know how you want to proceed. Records check seems to match birth year that I have. Did you find anything indicating her first name was actually Frances? There is a death record to a Frances M. Sollenberger d. 10/8/1961.

Ira Scovel
Hi Jan,
I was interested in the location you added for Ira Scovel, #61285222. I requested a headstone photo from a volunteer in the area and they reported they searched the who area and couldn't find one. I thought I would double check with you for the location.
Thanks for any help,
Jackie Dare

William Harris #62056510
Could you please add date of birth (2/13/1839) and link to parents...Father#62987924 Mother#81826706.
Please note that William's mother was not Margaret Littlejohn but Margaret Sinnett.
Here is a copy of the info for Father Isaac.
"At that youthful age he married and established a home of his own, taking as his bride Margaret, daughter, of John and Rachael Sinnett, to whom he was married January 30, 1834. Their pleasant wedded life was brought to an end after nine years by the premature death of the wife March 11, 1843. Their union resulted in the birth of five children, four daughters and one son, of whom the following is recorded: Emily born November 17, 1834, married J. L. Clifford, and died February 14, 1880; Mary, born August 11, 1836, married William DeFord in October, 1855; he is a butcher by trade, and they live in Smithfield, Cass Township; William H. was born on the 13th of February, 1839, enlisted in 1862 in Company H. One Hundred and Third Illinois Infantry, and was killed at the battle of Lookout Mountain in 1863; "
Thank you so much.

Sollenbergers in Philbrook
As I went back over my work this morning, I see things a little clearer. Gotta quit doing this stuff when sane people are asleep. Have a Vane Sollenberger which matches to your Andrea Vain. Looks like Claire nor Andrea married. Have a Henry who appears to be your Harry.... shares a marker with Elizabeth and Clyde. If you concur will add the photos to yours and delete what I have done. Only thing to figure out is Mussetta and B. Mussetta. Philbrook is almost 40 miles from me but I try to stop whenever I'm near there. Would have gotten more photos but the camera batteries were giving out. Check my work and let me what you think.

Also found Claire Sollenberger same dates as yours. She is sharing the marker with Vane Sollenberger, probably her husband. You have her maiden name as Sollenberger, unknown married name. I posted the marker's picture.

You added B. Musetta Sollenberger Brown b.1884 d.1961. I found Musetta Sollenberger b.1873 d.1961 husband was Frank Sollenberger b.1884 d.1953. There are several Browns in Philbrook that I haven't checked yet. Thought I would check with you to see if you thought we had the same person.
