Bio Photo I have been taking photos of tombstones for years. I am working on getting all the photos that I have on disc of Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville put on Find A Grave. I will be glad to transfer any memorial, just request.

I only transfer memorials when they are no relation to me. If they are family, it is why they have a memorial. I am sorry if I upset anyone.

Hello Denise: This is JoANn from Flagstaff, Arizona. I have found that Felix's father and his wife are buried at the Calvary Cemetery. John born 1870 died 9-15-1943 and Mary born 1877 and died Oct 25, 1943. Can you help me with a pic of the stone. I do not know how far you are away from this cemetery.

I am using the library at harrisburg, Il. My brother does not have a computer.

You can leave me a message at and my husband will call me. My phone number is 480 540-7395

Thank You

Dear Denise, Thanks to you I have found my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Kiley who died Mar 10, 1914. Would you by chance have access to the cemetery records to see who purchased the plot or might be buried near or next to him? Any family name attached to the cemetery records would be a helpful clue. Thomas Kiley was the Jockey who rode atop Spokane, the famous KEntucky Derby winning race horse of 1889. I descend from the owner of the horse and the Jockey. We lost track of Thomas Kiley and have had such a hard time finding him. One newspaper clipping we have says that he died on March 11, 1914 in East St. Louis, Illinois. This is how we know you have our Thomas Kiley. This cemetery is too close and the death date and name are more than coincedence. Thank you, Thank You, Thank you. Jacoby

Thank you for searching for his tombstone. No rush, but next time you are at the cemetery, could you take a photo of the area where he is supposed to be buried, possibly with some ID like another stone or tree in the photo? I will mark his memorial that there doesn't appear to be a stone, but sometimes it is nice to have that kind of photo to see where it might be.

Would you be willing to do a rubbing of the tombstone for me? Here is what I have in mind. If you lay a piece of aluminum foil shiny side down on the stone and then rub over the foil with a bristled brush, I have had very good success is reading weathered markers. See memorial 62707873 for an example of this technique.
