James J. McCowen Marriage License
James J. McCowen, age 20, residence Makanda Twsp, farmer B: Franklin County IL; First Marriage, white; s:O: George McCowen and Delilia Washburn; MARGARET J. LINDSEY, 23, Makanda IL; B: Benton County MO, white, first marriage; D/O: Caleb Lindsey and M. J. Hancock.......Married 28 June 1882 Makanda Jackson County Register of Marriages Page 78.

James parents were George McKown and Deloria Worsham.

I believe the death certificate entry for the name of Margaret Jane Lindsey as middle name of GENEVA is incorrect. No where else is she listed that way....Mary

Margaret Jane Lindsey
Margaret Jane Lindsey was my great-grandmother. Her name was NOT Margaret GENEVA Lindsey. Her name was Margaret JANE Lindsey.
She was the daughter of Caleb B. Lindsey and Minerva Jane Hancock.
Also, how did you verify her DOD as being 24 Oct 1903 or place of burial as being Cobden Cemetery?..Mary

You have Thomas and his wife in a duplicate cemetery. They should be in Union Cemetery. Here's a link to the right cemetery on Find a Grave:

RE: Re: Adding to your 1925 Tornado victim site

Done! Thanks for sending me the information. My virutal cemetery is obviously far from complete, since nearly 700 people died in that tornado. I'm always glad to add another memorial to it.

RE: Re: Link to your virtual cemetery

Sure, I can do that. Just send me his memorial number and I'll add him to the virtual cemetery.

RE: Thank you
Hi Nancy! Thought I'd also let you know that he's next to his grandparents (Isaac's parents) Joseph and Eliza Cain McGraw. Would you like me to transfer them over as well? Again, glad I could help.

RE: Thank you & God Bless!
Your welcome. I didn't know them. I have been working on photographing the entire cemetery and have been adding memorials as needed. It's nice to know that the time that is put into such a project is appreciated and I'm glad that you contacted me.

Aldridge, William Jr, Wanda & Susan
I have made the additions you sent for William Jr. I did not change his day of death as the 10th is what is listed on his military marker.

I have transferred him, Wanda and Susan to you since you are related. I know you didn't ask, but felt you would probably appreciate having them.

I have a first cousin who passed and the person in charge of his memorial wasn't willing to transfer to me and got quite snippy.

I will get a picture of Wanda's marker once it is placed as I periodically go back through the different areas looking for new arrivals.
