Bio Photo Currently researching Carter, Mumford, Wilson, Slaymaker, Burns & Besse. Just starting on the Lawrence side including Petersons, Drapers, & Hammonds.

I like photographing headstones, especially the old ones. It's important to document the old stones before they are gone!

We like going to the little country cemeteries in Whiteside, Henry, Bureau counties. Who knew it was this addicting?

re Amelia Davis
Looks like another contributor linked her incorrectly. See the creator of the Alonzo Memorial.

RE: Relief Dodge
Thanks Karen! Maybe Relief was really 65 or 66 years old. Sometimes these numbers look a lot alike. That would have made her 18 or 19 when she was married.

RE: Part 2 message RE:Robinsons
I realized that there is one more name I would like to know about from the Sextonís list. My 3rd gr grandmother, Relief Dodge is buried with her son Job Dodgeís family. The list on Genealogy Trails gives a birthdate of *1802. Iím not sure what that means, but she was married in 1811! This was probably taken from her grave stone which is apparently no longer there. Iím wondering if the sextonís list has her birthdate. That would be a great piece of information to have!

Regarding the Robinsons, thanks so much for the information! Iím curious to get your feeling about my thoughts. Grave #1, Mrs. JB Robinson This is not Benjaminís wife, as he and Fannie were married in Vermont, moved to Ohio then Illinois. It could be a first wife for their son Jabez Benjamin who was married in 1866. Itís a shame there are no dates. It could also be Benjaminís mother or aunt. According to some of the family members, Benjamin was the uncle of Hetty Green, ďthe witch of Wall StreetĒ--something which I canít verify--but maybe this would be a clue. Itís weird that there is no first name--itís not consistent with the other graves. Grave 5. Iím thinking that Charles and 2 infant daughters are the ones from the illegible grave stone, and they were all children of Benjamin and Fannie. It doesnít say that the infant daughters are Charlesí, and the grave would probably be too small for an adult and 2 infants (maybe twins?). Fannie and Benjamin were married in 1831, so if he were a married son, he would have already had 2 children, probably before his 20th birthday! Itís interesting to note that the oldest son, Edward, named some of his children after deceased siblings--Jane, Thomas, and probably Charles. If I combine Olive and Emily as the same person, then that would account for all 12 of Fannieís children (according to the 1900 census). Iím still not sure I want to do that, since my grandmother listed both names as children of Fannie. However, it may be that she knew Emily (who was the grandmother of June Mathis, a Hollywood mogul), and remembered the name Olibia, since that was Grandmaís middle name. The other infant without a grave could be a grandchild.

I really appreciate your help in this!

Memorial Photos
Hi Kathy,

Thank you for all the fantastic memorial photos! And, thank you for the personalized suggestions about any updates/edits that needed to be made.... However, if you would like to save yourself a lot of work and just use the edit tab on my memorials, that would be just fine too.

My name is Douglas C. Johnson and I would like to thank you for the excellent photographs of the grave marker of Harold Raymond Newton his wife, Joann M. Newton (nee Heydeman), and their son, Scott A. Newton at Oakwood Cemetery in Geneseo, Illinois.
Also, I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photographs on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

Thank you for the photos! I removed a couple of the census records from Theodores page, so you can add the other you mentioned.
