Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in this site started as an extension of compiling and documenting information on my family history. I remembered that my father had taken me to see my great great grandfather, John Leroy Perkins' grave marker in Center Cemetery, Shelby County, Cowden, IL. I returned to visited that site after my father passed on.
That visit re-ignited my interest in this site.
I feel that documentation of the location of family members' graves and linking those individuals to their relatives on this site is a true tribute and perpetuation of memories.

Is this Fern Riley the same person as Fern Scott, a nurse who died in the tragic St. Anthony Memorial Hospital fire in Effingham, IL on this date noted?
We have no other info.

Use of my photos
Yes you may use my photos, but I do require that you source me as the photographer and Find a Grave as their original location.

Thank you for asking permission, it's greatly appreciated.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial you want linked because the memorial page will come up and helps avoid mistakes it works better than leaving a message on our page.

RE: Cynthia Jane Perkins (Sullivan)
Hi Roger,
It was my pleasure to place the picture but you will have to contact Shirley Hall #47382091 to add the information of your aunt. Please include your aunts #81747291 or you could ask for a transfer through edit.

Mary Polly Huffman Musser Memorial 59297850
Hi Roger

I have been researching the Clark Name and thru looking for family of Eleanor Jemima Abrams Clark (daughter of Henry Abrams and Ruth) I have Henry Abrams (Memorial is 46240271) and his wife Ruth Beall (Tannehill) Abrams (Memorial is 46240401).

Their children have been reported as being:
Samuel (1790-1870)
John (1792-1859)
Nancy (1795-1873) married Sanderson
Emma (1799-1885) married Harper
Mary Polly (1800-1886) married Christian Christopher
Musser on 22 Oct 1818 in Fairfield, OH
both being buried in Bob Doan Cemetery
Hulda (1804-1824) married Hanson
Orpha (1806-1827) married Binkley
Eleanor (1809-1881) married James Clark (my research)
Jesse (1812-1824)

So, after all of the detail above - I was surprised to see Mary Polly Huffman Musser and not Mary Polly Abrams Musser.

I guess my source was incorrect? Sure would like your help
Thanks Phyllis Skrysak
