Transferred to you
|GreenHills Stones Calling||71292107 Ada Hines Erwin|
I have just transferred Ada's memorial to you.
|Henrietta (47274097)||RE: Sabula Methodist Cemetery|
Thank you for the address. I will have to check it out.
|Jessica Pratt||Charles Whitman|
I added a photo of Charles Whitman's stone. His month of death was December (sorry for it being partially blocked by the flag in the pic.) There was no stone for his wife, Lucy, but I will continue to search. Many stones appear to be missing from this cemetery unfortunately.
|GreenHills Stones Calling||RE: Great Aunt Genevieve|
You're very welcome, Trisha. Please feel free to contact me if there is ever anything else I can do for you. Enjoy your upcoming visit with Alpha Maxine.
|Ann Maree||RE: Jackson Co. Poor Farm|
The Poor Farm list is from funeral home records, and he does not appear in any of those records. There are exactly 86 confirmed burials there (from various sources over the years--the university that owns the property also surveyed it as having only 86 burials) so it is pretty much a sure bet he is NOT there. The one "Unknown" burial actually has a death date (that manager did not enter it yet) and the date does not match Thomas; he also would not be "Unknown" if the superintendent knew him. Is the letter from Tilroe Secrest? Did you find it online or do you own the letter? That is really interesting. I do see a mention in a local history book that in 1896 a Thomas Gilroid (yes, that spelling) owns a tailor shop "on the east side of the town square". If he was ever a resident at the Poor Farm it seems likely it was due to ill health or disability/old age, etc and not from being poor. Therefore that would lead one to suspect he may have had money for a funeral and burial elsewhere. So far I have not found him (by any spelling) listed in Carbondale deaths of that year, nor in the Illinois death records, and not in the older cemetery stone readings that were done in the 1970s of the other local cemeteries where he might actually be buried. What record have you found for the date of death? I did see a Civil War pension application for "Thomas Gilroyd" filed on Oct 15, 1897 (just a few days after the death date you gave) for a minor, the name said "Etta Efelain, gdn." in Kentucky (I think the name might really be Allphin though?) Does this sound like him? I think it says, "L 1, US Art" does that match the war records you have for him? Do you have a birth year? I don't know if that's related in any way to him, but thought I would mention it. Anyway....clearly you can see you have piqued my interest! LOL There are some more local records I can keep looking for him, but it would help if I knew what you already knew so I can possibly narrow it down. I can go to the Illinois State Archives Depository (IRAD) that is near my house to look into more original records. I can also ask the sexton of the other most likely cemetery if he has a record of his burial, even though it doesn't sound like he has a stone (since it wasn't read in the 1970s). If he never had a stone and we can figure out where he is actually buried you could get the US government to provide a stone for him. If you want to contact me privately about any of this, just send me an Edit through any of my memorials.
