From John Bracchi, 4th Great-Grandson of Mary Ross Riggs: Got this back from a photo request for Cyrus and Mary (Ross) Riggs, buried in Elkhorn Cemetery in Washington County, Illinois:
“This burial is on private property or is otherwise inaccessible. This cemetery has no access road to it, it sits on the edge of a farmer’s field and tree line. The area is over grown with trees and wild brush. It would be very difficult to reach the area for a closer inspection. I contacted the owner of the land and he doesn't recall ever seeing any headstones there, he knows people are buried there but he's not sure who. I showed him the request and asked if he recognized any of the names and he didn't. I'm sorry I wasn't able to get any pictures for you.”
