Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was small and would spend the day with my grandparents, I was not allowed to cross the street. I could, however, go along with my friend Bonnie,(and her little dog, "Willie") around the block to Rosemont in Plymouth, Illinois. This started my interest in the stones as art; the history of the people in my community, and my love of cemeteries and their preservation.

Now that I live in my grandparent's house, I realize she only had to look out her back window for a fine view of the cemetery -- clever grandma!

Tim Coplin and I did mapping and a complete photocataloging of all the stones in the Old Macomb (Illinois) Cemetery. Tim also made a map of the cemetery.

I am actively working on a number of cemeteries: Mt. Horeb, in Adams Co.; Old Augusta & Woodlawn near Augusta; Rosemont, Irwin, St. Mary, all near Plymouth and Bowen all in Hancock Co.; Scott and Old Macomb in McDonough Co., and Round Prairie (Schuyler Co.)also near Plymouth,IL.

We live on the convergence of Hancock, McDonough, and Schuyler Counties in Illinois and are only a short distance to the Adams Co. line. This is an area that many pioneers passed thru or stopped over for a few years before continuing West. If you contact me, please state the cemetery which is concerned - that would help alot - thanks.

Please let me know if any of my entries need additions/corrections/deletions or if you want to assume management of an entry. If I can help in anyway, please let me know.

Happy graving to all. Connie

Elizabeth Cannon Stodgell
I was wondering if you knew anything of the whereabouts of Henry A. Stodgell's mother, Elizabeth Cannon Stodgell. After her husband, Ambrose Winston Stodgell's death in 1895, I see by the 1900 census that she went to live with Henry and Hatti and family in Hancock Co- St. Mary. I checked the cemetery listing of where Henry is buried, thinking that would be logical maybe. Just wondering where she ended up. Ambrose Stodgell is in my family line. She was the 3rd of his three wives - they kept having children and dying on him.

RE: Edith M. Boyles
You are correct Connie. We lived in Denver till just after I graduated high school. Most of both my parents ancestors are buried in Mt. Horeb. When I was a kid our families would all get together on Memorial Day and have a picnic there. That was the thing back then.

Who are you connected to in Mt. Horeb? Our Wright family lived in the Plymouth area when I was a little kid. I never met Tom and Hattie Wright, but my Dad took my Grandma to see her Aunt and Uncle once or twice. I am related to Analie Wright who lives in Plymouth.

Thanks for all your help on Find A Grave.

They wouldn't allow for corrections after posting so I just sent a corrected message. Ignore the first all buried in Mt. Horeb.
