John W. Sears
Hi, I just had a question about John W. Sears #52367746 memorial data. He is buried at the Clarksville Baptiste Chruch Cemetery, in Clark Co. Illinos. His find a grave memorial states that he is the son of "T" and S; 35 years, 3 mos., 5 days. Could the "T" possibly be a typo for "J" I believe he may be the son of -Jacob and Sarah (Yaeger) Sears. Sometime the markers are difficult to read and letters get worn off. Would like to confirm if I found my great something uncle. Thanks for all your hard work helping to record family history! :)

Evelyn Cornwell
There was a Lillian A Wilson (1930-1957( buried next to her with the transcription "Daughter." Her tombstone was a duplicate of Evelyn's and her husband. Could that have been a daughter?

Yeakley & Faught
You must have a hugh tree Cindy and I have a whole lot of ancestors. Do you think we could trade? I went back on all the wives families that I could on my tree so there really is a lot. I also have an old tree on If you go to George there are a lot of contributers but I have the largest of them and I am the only one who researched way back. There once was doubt that Anna was the wife until I found the cemetery she is in and guess what, George Faught and Maria Christina bought the plot for her. But I am not about to get into that with others. Been there once before with another grandmother who someone had her daughter married to her father. lol I had someone go to the cemetery and take a photo of the headston which had both her husband and father named on it. The one who really took the hit was their poor daughter. I am extremely please to have found you and you have been a wonderful researcher! Hope to hear from you. Oh, George and Anna had 9 children and I did 7 complete trees, Christina I did not and I could not find one son. By the way, my mother was Betty Louise Yeakley.

Christina YEAKLEY
Cindy, I know who her parents were. They were George FAUGHT & Maria Christina Yeakley. I will add her parents but wanted you to know first. Christina actually married 3 times. First was Isaac Depoy who she had 5 children, secondly was George Faught who she had 4 children and I have no informtion on Trout. Trout was a very well known name in Pennsylania so I will begin researching that name. Christina's father was a REV WAR soldier and her name is listed with the first two husbands on the DAR list as decendants.

Thanks for responding. I tried to request a picture but it won't happen because I got a message that the "limit" of 1 picture request has been reached. It's actually just a view of the York Cemetery and sign. Do you know how best to find someone close to this cemetery that could get a pic of his gravestone?
Thanks Karen Knudsen Collins

Henry Cornwell
I was looking at your Henry Cornwell and noticed that you might need to change the death date as the picture of the headstone has the death date as 1975. I just thought you would like to know.
