From a FAG contributor & photo volunteer:
I have searched West Cemetery in Pittsfield, Pike county, Illinois many times looking for Clarissa Amelia Foster Carter's final resting place with no luck. It is rare to find a tombstone as old as 1840 in the cemetery. Since she was a Mormon, I wonder if she was buried in Mormontown Cemetery a little east of Pittsfield? There was a large settlement there at the time she died - unfortunately, the cemetery was bulldozed in the past and no markers exist at this time. I wish there was a list of those buried in the cemetery, but unfortunately, I don't think there is.....I just wanted to let you know about the settlement and cemetery in case you wanted to move her memorial to the Mormontown Cemetery.
