Kenneth, I ran across a copy of Eathels Obit in my moms (Ellie Armstrong) effects. In case you'd like to add it to her memorial, here is the text.
Services for Eathel NeSmith, 86, of Durant will be 10 A.M. Monday in the Coffey Funeral Home Chapel under the direction of Coffey Funeral Home.
Mrs. NeSmith was born Nov. 26, 1906, in Gordonville, Texas, and died Saturday at Kings Daughters and Sons Nursing Home.
She was a homeemaker and a member of the Abundant Life Temple.
She was married to Oscar Bridges on Aug. 12, 1925, in Sherman, Texas. He proceded (sic) her in death.
She is survived by two sons, Harlan Bridges of Fairfield, Calif., and Ross Bridges of Durant; four daughters, Chloe Armstrong, of Perryton, Texas, Anita Harris of Madill, Lawanda Walker and Zelda Hicks, both of Durant; a brother, Ralph Arnold of Live Oak, Calif.; and three sisters, Ethel Lea and Nellie Bivins, both of Live Oak, and Ellie Armstrong of Marysville, Calif.; 17 grandchildren and 15 great-grand-children.
Burial will be in the Willis Cemetery. J.D. Ray will perform the service.
Pallbearers will be Loyd Hicks, Eugene Harris, Sterling Hicks, John Harris, Hugh Armstrong, and David Bridges.

Appears you have two memorial pages for my 3rd cousin, Eliza Jane Lee Conn. One is at 44871176 and the other is 44871367. No question but that these memorials reflect the same person.

In the Illinois archives database is the record John R. Leib married Mary E. Grady. Her father then would have been Calvin Grady and her mother Jane Curry.

Thank you for adding Mom.

Thanks for the transfer.
Since you are related to the Lees then, you will probably want to check back in a few days when I have a chance to correct the information and links as I descend from the Lees and Conns.
I have been to this cemetery as my grandmother took me in the early 1990s as it was down the road from her house. It is on private property up a steep driveway in the woods, not visible from the road and not marked.
After visiting it, I bought an Etowah Co, AL map that showed the churches and cemeteries in the county and this Lee Cemetery was not marked. Since it was old, unmarked, overgrown, and historical (our War of 1812 / Indian Wars soldier, William Carroll Lee, is buried there as is his son, former Etowah County Sheriff, Polk Dallas Lee), not to mention of value to other family and historians, I sought to have that changed so that it wouldn't be lost forever. It seemed at the time only local residents and old-timers knew of its existence. The area is a very small town.
I wrote the map company and they told me they got their records from the state DOT and that if / when the DOT updated their records, and the map company would update their records accordingly with future updates of their map. So I contacted the AL DOT. They sent a survey crew out to survey the cemetery who noted it on their map.
The AL DOT sent me a very nice letter detailing it's location on their map and mentioning a few graves that were marked. This was ca 1994. I also uploaded the basic cemetery information to a website, called savinggraves.com or something similar about websites that were in danger because they were not being maintained.
Fast forward a few years ago well into the modern GPS era now, I came across another similar Etowah County map at my local book store and lo and behold, there was still no Lee Cemetery on the map! (There is another Lee Cemetery elsewhere in the county, but it is not this cemetery that I had the DOT). That frustrated me to no end! Of course, these are our ancestors buried there, and they are all important, but beyond that, the cemetery has historical value you would think to the county and state, if nothing else because of our two Lees buried there.
Anyway, thanks again for the transfer.

Hi, the area was flooded and well overgrown. They are currently doing maintenance on the area, so took the best pic I could take. Hopefully they clean it up soon.

Thanks so much! I appreciate you for taking this picture.
Thank you so much for his headstone photo!
|Daniel Beach||Willis Ethel|
Willis Jackson Ethel (1815-1838)is buried in Etheal Cemetery, Scott County, Illinois. Located in Section 17, Township 15 N, Range 12 W on the Koch Farm, this cemetery isn't marked and is located in a wooded area in the middle of a field.
His tombstone was several inches below the surface with the inscription face down. The depth at which it was found and the lack of wear on the inscription would seem to indicate that it fell down many years ago.
I have a photo of the stone, and would be very happy to send it along to you. He would be my second great-grand uncle.
He had a son, also named Willis Jackson Ethel (1839-1927), who was born a few months after his father's death. He died in King city, Missouri.
Please let me know if you would like the photo of the stone.
