RE: Thank You
My pleasure. Just to let you know I got an email from someone in the Midwest a few months ago after I created a memorial page and posted the grave photo of a veteran buried at San Joaquin Valley Memorial Cemetery here in California. The woman who emailed me was the brother of the deceased soldier and she had been searching for many years for the whereabouts of her brother. Unfortunately, she found him through find a grave after I added a memorial page - as he was not listed as buried there. Veterans Affairs are years behind in adding deceased vets. I am sorry for your loss.

We looked up the Russells in the cemetery index at the Bureau County Genealogy Society. They have indexed the cemetery and added in the sexton's notes which are in [].

For Lot 125 it says the owner is James Franklin Russell and lists 4 burials there. 1) RUSSELL, J.F. no dates stated, Co. A., 9th IL Cav. (Civil War Marker) [James Franklin Russell, Mar 17, 1896]. 2) [RUSSELL, Arthur, bur Oct 26, 1940] no marker. 3) [RUSSELL, Mrs. James F., bur. Feb 2, 1904] no marker. 4) [??? infant son, bur. 1875] no marker.

Hopes this helps in your search. If you need more from Bureau county contact the Genealogical Society in Princeton. They are very helpful and have a lot of local information there.
