Bio and Links
I started with Bush family information a few years ago when my cousin,Jim Bush,gave me my great grandparents (Bush) family bible.

Jim Died March 15, 2011 Memorial #66947928

In 2010 I decided to put my second cousin's, Dale Newton, work on the Newton family from Edgar County Illinois on the computer. He used a typewriter.

Dale died February 17, 2014 Memorial #125335998

Findagrave, and connecting with CCurry sent me off in all directions. Photographed and posted the balance of the Newton Cemetery in Edgar County Illinois. James and Jemima Thornton Newton are my great great grandparents.

In November of 2010 a post from Donna lead me to "discover" the Adams/Bush/Legg Cemetery. I found my Bush gg grandparents Bush there. Since then taking and posting pictures from many cemeteries has been my goal to help other with their ancestors.

Several small cemeteries in Edgar County Illinois and Vermillion County Indiana had not been detailed on findagrave so it was and continues to be a great adventure.

You posted a picture of Harriet Ellen "Hattie" Parker Coleman with other people. I was wondering if you can tell me which was is Hattie?
Thanks, for helping me find relatives.

John Russell 70545349
I am wondering if you have the correct parents, John and Sarah Russell, for they were not married until 1835, seven years after your John Russell was born. Also, there is no mention of a son John in the obituary of the father John.

Cindy's memorial transfer.
Hey John, would you want Cindy's memorial. We can trade or something? Let me know. I'll be accepting the changes regardless. Thanks

You have done a fantastic job with the Thomas Cemetery. I live a long way from here and I am searching from my adoptive grandmother's birth parents. I know that her brother Edgar Basinger is buried here. You have taken a picture of his and his son's grave. I believe his father John Basinger is in this cemetery too (listed on his death certificate in 1913). I would love to know if you can find either John or his wife Nancy Jane's stones. Hope you can help.

Thank you for the heads-up on the December 25 date of death for the above! I can see the 25th on the headstone. And one part of the death certificate is a toss-up, but the date it was signed was December 25.

I was at Old Union Cemetery on June 24, 2016, but was looking more that day for the Babb family.

John Rusell's Parents: William and Jane
Hi, the Indiana Death Certificates are now on, and on John Russell's death certificate, it lists his parents as William Russell and Jane Slater (not John Russell and Sarah Hendrickson).
