I said Ruth and Alfred, but it's Ruth and Joseph Johnson. My line is from their son James. It's nice to know that Ruth, Joseph and their two sons are together.

I just want to say "Thank you" for the picture of Ruth and Alfred Johnson. I am planning on a trip next year, and am planning on visiting the site of my relatives graves to pay my respect.

Thank You
I want to thank you for searching for Mabel and Oscar. I really appreciate your help. I am having trouble locating any documents on them at all. I was hoping to find something. Their father is buried there as well and he could not be found either. I wish I could locate a map of their location at least so I could place markers there. Again, thank you so much for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

I would like to thank you once again for the picture of Katharina E. Schaefer Horn.

She is my mother in law's great great grandmother. I have been trying to help her trace he genealogy. You brought a LARGE smile to an elderly lady!

Thanks again for all of your help.

elizabeth randolph headstone
hi...the headstone photo that you recently provided for elizabeth randolph was unfortunately for the wrong elizabeth. the request was for an elizabeth 1800-1837 but the photo was for an elizabeth that shows a dod on the headstone of 1862. there apparently are more headstones in the brush that are not easily found or photographed. maybe we will have to wait until the seasons kill the plant growth. i know of three different elizabeth randolphs in rehoboth and of course all with different dates. would you remove the incorrect photo from f-a-g for me? thanks for your efforts, greg randolph

I am so late in sending you a "Thank You" for the photo you took for me. Sometimes life just gets in the way of the things we want to be doing...

So here is my very big "Thank You" for taking the time to take a photo for me! Your time and effort really is appreciated.

Happy Holidays to you,

RE: squire sanders

You know I never did. Where I thought they would be, there were no stones with the names we were searching. But I've been in contact with another contributor who has some leads. She feels she knows where they are physically buried, just hasn't found stones.

I've moved out of the area recently so I've left it in her hands. I told her if she finds them I will make her queen!

Enjoy your graving/holiday weekend!

The Weaver graves
Thank you so much for taking the photos of the Weaver family in Joliet. My aunt will be so happy to see the photos of her husband's grave as will the son who never met his father. You are very kind and generous.

RE: squire sanders
What a nice thing to take your daughters! It depends on the cemetery, I guess. Out by us it isn't common. But My Grandparents are buried in Mt Greenwood and it's treated more like a park there, at least when I go :) There are bike riders on the 'trails' and my mom, sister and I had a picnic labor day weekend there. It was wonderful. In Charlotte, NC there is a historical cemetery in the old section and people were on benches reading, some walking dogs. They are really beautiful places.

Actually a few months back I saw a 'party' of sorts when I drove past Skyline memorial park in Monee. Had to be 20 people with balloons and a little grill! I hope that becomes more acceptable.

Well, at this point I am just glad the mystery is solved... not sure when I will be back out photographing either (it finally got cold!) so whoever gets to it first, doesn't bother me. When the weather gets nice again let me know if you want another graving buddy in your crew!

Till then, happy holidays!

oh im so dumb.
anyway... I saw the requests for 'Cemetery near Squire Sanders' as well... and saw that you had been inquiring about where they might be. I'm in Beecher and was just as puzzled. Anyway, I did some research on it and found this on a posted obituary on ILGenWeb:

[Note: "Squire Sanders" may be referring to the property of M.F. SANDERS, who owned a large parcel of land at the northwest corner of Green Garden Township. According to an 1862 plat map, the small property of Abel E. HOLDEN was located at the southwest edge of Frankfort Township, which was across the road from the property owned by M. F. SANDERS. The Illinois Death Index, shows that Abel E. HOLDEN died at Frankfort Station and was buried at Frankfort Township.]

So I may be nutso here, but is it a possibility they are actually here?

There is one Holden there. I know now it's winter and you probly are not out taking requested photos, but I figured I would drop a line with what I had found. I will also send a message to the original contributor to see if it helps at all. So they may post a new request... and since you have already been working on it you should get dibs, lol! :)

Hi Cindy:
When you make a memorial for someone that you are not related to it is customary to transfer ownership of that memorial to a family member when they request it. You are still shown as the original creator of that memorial and it stays in your tally of memorials created but management of that memorial goes to the person you transfer it to. There is a link in the upper right side of any memorial on Find A Grave that enables the transfer.

RE: Mary Banker Adams/Oakwood
The information I had from the funeral home was that Micajah's first wife was buried there also. That must be the stone that is so worn. Could you transfer William and Harriet to me? I really appreciate all of your help!
