RE: Kate, Owen and Thomas O'Neill
Hello Beth

Glad I could help.

I am 99% sure the graves are Kate, Owen and Thomas O'Neill. The headstones are very worn and difficult to read. The cemetery office does not have records for Kate, Owen or Thomas O'Neill because of a fire around 1900 destroyed most of the early records.

A marked grave for Honora (Honor) O'Neill is not close to Owen. There may be a grave and headstone at Calvary Cemetery which I have not found.

You can contact the cememtery office at (217) 523-3726 to verify if she is there and provide location information. Post the location on a photo request, and I will be happy to take a photo. Finding a headstone can be very difficult since Calvery Cemetery is very large.

RE: Mason and Olive Pearce
Do you have info on Mason? Here is a 1850 census record. His first name was Hezekiah.

1850 United States Federal Census
about Hezekiah Pearce
Name: Hezekiah Pearce
Age: 30
Birth Year: abt 1820
Birthplace: New York
Home in 1850: Sherman, Chautauqua, New York
Gender: Male
Occupation: Painter
Family Number: 41
Household Members: Name Age
Hezekiah Pearce 30
Olive Pearce 30 born in Vermont
Norman Pearce 2 born in NY

In 1860 census he is a wagon maker.

The meaning of the star in front of his grave.
The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was a fraternal organization composed of veterans of the Union Army, US Navy, Marines and Revenue Cutter Service who served in the American Civil War. Founded in 1866 in Decatur, Illinois, it was dissolved in 1956 when its last member died. Linking men through their experience of the war, the GAR became among the first organized advocacy groups in American politics, supporting voting rights for black veterans, lobbying the US Congress to establish veterans' pensions, and supporting Republican political candidates. Its peak membership, at more than 490,000, was in 1890; a high point of Civil War commemorative ceremonies. It was succeeded by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), composed of male descendants of Union veterans.

RE: Ansell Gravestones
You're quite welcome. I was happy to find them for you. It's a lovely area on a hill - a nice resting place for them. I also added the two other sisters whose memorials were not yet listed.
