Bio and Links
To some extent I have been interested in genealogy for a long time. I went back to college when my youngest daughter started school and became an elementary teacher. One of the lessons in history was about our ancestors - especially when we studied the pilgrims. Although I knew about my mother and father's immediate families, my knowledge of where I came from did not extend much beyond that. After I retired, I got a computer to help make designs for my embroidery machine. I became acquainted with the internet and genealogy took off from there. I have done extensive work on my and my husband's family history. Find A Grave became a great source for connecting families and is a wonderful tool in research.

If you come across any of my memorials and I can be of help to you or if you have information that can be added to any of my memorials, please contact me.

Robwell Kimball, E M Kimball
I looking into the family history of this branch of the Kimball family.
One of Roswell Kimball's children, married a man named Edmund Jones Orgain ,and they moved to Bastrop County, Texas.
I believe that I might be able to help you with family history.
1850 census Illinois, upper Alton, Madison County, Household 102, line number 10
list Roswell Kimball, age 58 born in New Hampshire
Rollin H Kimball age 24 New York
Eleanora Matthews Kimball age 18 New York.
Roswell's wife was one Elenora Matthews, I believe that this might be the EM listed in this cemetery. Her date of death from what I have found varies. One record has said 1848, another is before 1845.
Sarah Jane Kimball born 1830, New York, died 1924 California, buried Fairview cemetery, Bastrop, Texas. Eleanora M Kimball, born 1832 married a Vawter, and Rollin H Kimball, is buried in Georgia.

I have linked Johnnie Tayon to his parents. Either you or someone else who wrote on his site wanted to be notified when their burial spots were found. Hope this helps out.

RE: Moses H. Creamer & James Cramer
All I can tell you about where they are relative to each other is: Since they were posted eight days apart, they have to be pretty close to each other, but in a different row. When I take pictures at a cemetery, I start at one corner of a section, do a row, then the next row. I post about ten per day, so on my camera they would be about 80 apart from each other. I would guess there to be 30 to 40 people per row in Robison. So they could be next to each other, but in different rows. If they were next to each other, and I noticed, I would have said so on the memorial. Good luck.
