|Tom Black||RE: Campground Cemetery Blizzards|
Hi Judy, thanks for contacting me. I am related, although distantly, to the Blizzards in Campground Cemetery. Never-the-less, I would be happy to transfer some of them to you.
My connection to these people is this. James Blizzard (1801-1861) is my first cousin 5x removed. His father, James Joseph Blizzard (1752-1830), died in Bond Co., IL but I don't know where he and his wife, Mary Short Blizzard, are buried. James Joseph Blizzard, my GGGG Granduncle, was the brother of my GGGG Grandfather, William Blizzard (1758-1827).
Let me know which of the memorials are of particular interest to you.

Judy I will be adding another photo soon, her Great Grandson has ordered her a new stone, it's just not there yet. My Great Aunt was married to Robert Edrington.

I couldn't say for sure about kinship with your branch of the Riggin family. My grandfather was Roy Riggins (with an "s")whose father came to IL from NC.
There was a Riggin family who lived near Sorento, IL and are buried in Sunnyside Cemetery in Bond County. You might want to take a look. Might be your relation.
Thank you for the suggested corrections, I have made the corrections and asked my mother for her obituary so I can post it and get you a copy if you would like. My mother is Karen, she may contact you. Teresa

My reason for asking was that you had several of the Lewey family in your files. I am connected to them via my great great aunt Anna Lewey Parkhill, buried in Hillsboro.

Are you related to the extended Lewey family of Hillsboro, Illinois?
