Bio and Links
I live in central Illinois where I research the following family surnames: Adams, Bean, Beckett, Berry, Bradford, Bryan, Creviston, Ennis, Good, Halstead, Hood, Hopper, Houk, Hull, Jackson, Kirby, Landers, McClary, Pease, Rhodes, Tarwater and Williams. My grandmother got me interested in grave hunting on Memorial Day(s) at a very young age. I have decorated graves of relatives with a flower. A Daffodil for indirect blood relatives and an Iris for direct blood relatives. Indirect non-blood relatives are decorated with blue bells.
My wife Alena researches the following surnames: Freeman, Brown, Trimmer, Watkins, Bryant, Shoultz, Loveless, Good ,Garver and Bourland.

James Tolly
I obtained this material from the Union Predestinarian Baptist Church and Tolly Cemetery. Flat Branch Twp., Shelby Co, ILLinois. Compiled from church records by Marian Simcox Wooters, Findlay, Illinois, March 1967. Received from Elder Robert Webb, Primitive Baptist Church Archivist and Family History Research Assistance website in Carthage, IL. It doesn't state how these people are related, just that they are members of this particular church.
TOLLY Surname = James Tolly, Sr.; Winny Tolly; Caroline Tolly; Elizabeth Tolly Huhle (d. Dec. 1957); Effie Tolly Allen; Jane Tolly, James Tolly, Jr., Laura Tolly, Lucinda Tolly, Maga E. (Margaret?) Tolly, Mary Tolly, Mary E. Tolly (d. Jun 1919), Sam Tolly (d. Dec. 21, 1942), Samuel TOLLY (d. Jan. 21, 1879).
