Thank you very much for all the work you do on this website, have come across your memorials many times with both sides of my family.
Pleasant Green was quite the challenge to find but thankfully once when I was at Little York city cem. I had a pix of the school and the guy mowing there recognized it and gave me directions. I hope to go back again and do some more work on it especially since proof she's there as well as Wm. Can't imagine he didn't have a military stone at some time.

THANK YOU!!!! so much for the obit on Lucretia Morehead # 154426599. It also answers a question that another member & I have been wondering about Sarah Page #111410241 being her daughter. Are you by chance related to them?? Lucretia & William are my 4th great grandparents.

Yes I think you are correct. I too think she is the daughter of Frederick Winter # 57076618 and Wilhelmina Ute # 57076628, I will make the edits.

Do you know if there are any cemetery records about this girl?

Amazing amount of work you do for Find-a-Grave! Thank you. Looking for Lucius Hubbard Parker and his mother Miriam Wallace Parker Murray, both of whom died at Galesburg, but Mt. Hope Cemetery doesn't have any records for them. I found a reference of a burial for Miriam at Hopewell in October 1865 in lot #68.
Not certain if that is accurate but since New Windsor is just over 30 miles from Galesburg it seems possible. Would you have any source of information I could turn to in order to determine if they may be buried there? Parker was an abolitionist preacher well-known in his day.
Thank you so much for taking photos of the James and Elizabeth Dryden memorials. I really appreciate it!!

I have taken care of his memorial in Abingdon Cemetery. Thank you.
|Marilyn Hunt||RE: Alfred Hunt inquiry|
Thanks for checking!
|Linda Rhoadarmer||RE: Mary Hoffman Koch Pracher|
Thank you. That is what I do also. We are on our way back to California. We had been in Rock Island and were looking for my husband's ancestors and found a bunch in the cemetery. The office had given us a list of those buried in the Block, Lot and Mary Pracher was on the list. After researching, I found that she was a Koch and had remarried after the death of Mr. Koch and now was a Pracher. At the time we were retaking gravestone photos, we were not looking for Mary. I don't think she had a separate headstone. I don't remember it. The large upright headstone was really hard to read but I don't remember if there was other stuff written on one other side or not. I do know that two sides did not have anything written on it. I was hoping that if you lived close by that you could just run over there again and double check for me. You have done a wonderful job of taking photos in the cemetery. Again thank you for doing what you have done. It was a big help. We found a bunch of Weavers there and those are the folks we came to find plus a Rebecca Rupley. I had been looking for Rebecca for years and found her there in the Chippiannock Cemetery. Who would have thought. Linda
|Marilyn Hunt||Alfred Hunt inquiry|
Do you know if there are any unmarked graves at the Alexis cemetery? I know my ancestors lived in Alexis in 1870, but my 2nd great grandfather died in 1874 (possibly April 11) somewhere in that area, maybe Spring Grove Township if not Alexis. No records of exist that I can find. His name was Alfred J Hunt.
Thanks - I appreciate the photos you posted of Jacob and Rebecca Price headstone. Alfred's wife Mary married their son Henry to help raise the 5 little boys she was left with after Alfred's death.
