Thank you again for finding the Portsmouth monument in Elmhurst cemetery very much appreciated!
thank you and who else was buried in the plot.
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Anna's stone and of the Ingalls bench monument!
|Betty Miller||Elnora Judge|
Thank you for looking for Elnora's gravesite. I have an IL death index that says she is buried there with an Aunt and Uncle. That doesn't mean she has a headstone though.
|Patti ||John G. Miller monument photo Thanks!|
Thank you Darrell! Find a Grave just informed me that you have already fulfilled my photo request. In the years since I located this grave, I've yet to be able to visit. This photo completes a project started for my father for this civil war ancestor. RIP gr. grandfather.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph her headstone. I was wondering if you were able to read the dates and who the other person on the headstone is? Your help is invaluable. Thank you again. If we can help with photo's in Northern Utah, please let me know.

Darrell: Thanks for the nice photos. It IS a difficult stone to read!
|Carole J Chauncey||Orange Chauncey|
No...from an old Puritan Line...his Grandfather was Josiah Chauncey and GGrandfather Isaac Chauncey was the Second Pastor of First Church of Hadley, Massachusetts. I wonder if his mother may have been though? His father was Moses Chauncey & Mother Sarah Calkin...hmmm.
RE: THANKS for Orange Chauncey photo!
My honor, Carole. The more I looked at his name, the more I wondered if he had been an Irish Protestant.
