My family includes McPeak, Parkinson, Phelps, Blacklidge, Turner, Harper, Nation, Upton, McMurphy, Raney, Anderson, Morris, Floyd ,Mattingly and Woodruff.

*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•* Dear Ancestor *•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*
"Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you."
Walter Butler Palmer

Thank you so much! I figured there had to be an easier way but I can't figure it out! As soon as I see they have been added I will contact the person from Ebenezer Cemetery. You have been a wonderful help!

RE: Listings on 2 different cemetery's
Hi Eileen, I'm still working on this, I haven't contacted the person about the Ebenezer memorial because there is same family memorial connections that I don't want to lose. Can you tell me the easiest way to get the siblings and Children connected to Ernest and Ella May Hopper Weaver.

I know how to add Parents but I don't see anyway to add sibling or children.. The Ernest's memorial on IOOF Cemetery has most of the info except a couple of Children.

Ella May Hopper Weaver's Memorial on Ebenezer has a lot more info. I'm going to add her parents on her IOOF memorial. I would have no issuing entering the info on siblings and children if you tell me how.

After all the info has been transferred to IOOF memorial I will contact Ebenezer to delete the memorials for Ernest Joseph and Ella May Hopper Weave. Thank you so much for your help, Edna Hopper

Thank you Eileen! I did send the same message to her that I sent to you. I will contact her and let her know. There are some family connections on the Ebenezer Cemetery memorial that is not on the IOOF memorial. I'll check tomorrow and make a copy of them so they can be transferred to you're memorials, thank you so much! Edna Zeyak

Listings on 2 different cemetery's
There are 2 memorials for a relative and her husband. They are listed in 2 different cemeteries:

Ella May Hopper #95882238 Ebenezer Cemetery, Norris City, Illinois & #131520554 IOOF Cemetery, Norris City, Illinois.

Ernest Joseph Weaver #95882063 Ebenezer Cemetery, Norris City, Illinois & #102315377 IOOF Cemetery, Norris City, Illinois.

I’m not sure who I should contact for this.if possible I will post this on both Cemetery’s if possible. I see they are both in the same city, are they the same Cemetery? Thank you for any help, Edna Hopper
