Ralph Radcliff Sr. (#92627837)
Hello DRWS - I submitted an edit on Ralph's birth year (changing it from 1903 to 1902). All his Social Security paperwork lists his birth year as 1902 (though his stone shows 1903). It's no problem if you choose to stay with 1903 due to it being his "stone" year. Thanks for all the work you've done at Fairlawn/South Hill.

I believe the Old Ebenezer Cemetery is now listed and correctly located in Saline County.

Thank you for your response.

Since I did not create the memorial for Rachel Stockton Roper, I cannot edit it.

I have submitted a request for correction with the FindAGrave Forum. Waiting to hear back from them.

Once this happens, the photo of the cemetery sign will have to be removed by you since it was linked by you, and it is incorrect. The image is of Ebenezer Cemetery which is located up by Thompsonville, still in Saline County, IL, but the wrong cemetery. It is associated with the Ebenezer Community Church in Thompsonville IL, miles away from the site of the Old Ebenezer Cemetery.

I am willing to manage the memorial of George Washington and Rachel Roper if you would like.

My FindAGrave member number is 49180454.

Thanks,

--Jim

If you copy and paste
Old Ebenezer Cemetery, Saline County IL
into the Yahoo or Google search box you will be given a number of hits.
Two of the hits that show the location of Old Ebenezer Cemetery are:
http://www.placekeeper.com/Illinois/Old_Ebenezer_Cemetery-415016.html

and

http://roadsidethoughts.com/il/cemeteries/old-ebenezer-cemetery-xx-saline-profile.htm

My wife and I found this cemetery on a 2001 genealogy research vacation. We photographed the headstone you see on the FindAGrave page for Rachel Stockton Roper.

My patriarchal line from me backwards is:
Jim Roper - Thaddeus C. Roper - William Carroll Roper - John Wesley Roper - William Carroll Roper - George Washington Roper (Rachel Stockton-Roper).

A link to my ministry website is:

Thanks for your response.

She is not buried in Ebenezer Cemetery.

Please correct this.

I took the photo of the headstone for George Washington and Rachel Stockton Roper. They are my g-g-g grandparents.
