RE: Clyburn family
Hi Patsy... How have you been? Fine I hope. Thanks for the message. I had been doing a lot of research on Archibald's descendants until about a week ago when I came down with the flu. Since then I have been layed up on the couch. I retired from teaching about a year ago and started doing genealogy again. I want to write and publish a book on Archibald. His contribution to founding the city of Chicago seems so significant in spite of losing his fortune of about $500,000 dollars in 1837. Even as late as 1870, two years before his death in 1872, he was very wealthy. In the 1870 US federal census he has real-estate valued at $100,000 dollars, which in today's currency would be worth 1.7 million dollars. I am making another trip back to Chicago and Rose Hill cemetery where Archibald and many of his family is buried. I was there back in 2009 and received a grave plat but I think there were more documents that I was not given by the cemetery office. Have you corresponded with Kathy Weaver before? She is also very knowledgeable on the Clybourn/Mckenzie family connection. Message me back when you get time. I need to get back on the couch to get better.

RE: McDermott grave
First of all, without at least a first name or a memorial number, I have no idea which memorial this is! I photograph a lot of cemeteries with no connections to my own family. Therefore, I have no info about most the monuments or their owners besides what's provided on them. Good luck!

Related? Junkers-Seggermans
Hi. I am betting we are related, as I see you have several Junker-Seggerman posts in the Fairbury area, and I am related to the Junkers and Seggermans in that area. Your name sounds familiar, altho I could be imagining that. I am the granddaughter of Lester and Pamelia Seggerman. I love genealogy, and am always glad to talk to a relative!

Roland L Junker
Just found this and wanted to let you know that in this Obituary it says "daughter Linda Smith and husband Gary" And it should be Linda Smith husband Cory Fort Atkinson. I know it's confusing....with all the Linda's!!
Roland was my father and Lois didn't have any ceremony for him. He was cremated....

John Harris Kinzie, Jr.
Hi Patsy

I was fascinated by your bio of John Harris Kinzie, Jr. What a horrible heroic death. It is so amazing the different stories of people that you find here. Is he a relative of yours?
I have a question (um, 3 or 4), I thought you might know the answer to because I can not find it here. Am I right that your John Harris is the son of John H. Kinzie who was born in 1803 (I think in Detroit)? and the grandson of John Kinzie, the first white settler of Chicago? Do you know where John H Kinzie is buried? the one born in 1803? I don't see any record of him being buried at Graceland

Maria Hunter-Princeton Cemetery
Patsy - I have the photo you requested. Maria is on the same stone has her Husband, David Hunter. I will upload the photo's within the next day or so. Actually, there are 2 Maria's on the Monument for David. The Monument has inscriptions on 3 sides: Major David Hunter; Maria Kinzie (wife of Major David Hunter) and Maria Hunter Kinzie (wife of George Steuart).

There are smaller stones besides the huge monument with the initials, D.H., M.H., and M.S.

RE: Araminta's grave
You will find more clyburn buried in Miriam Benedict cemetery in Westville, Indiana. I had found some, but some were also unreadable.
