Reuben Harrell
Lynn - while looking at New York newspapers, I ran across the Harrell Christmas Eve shooting. I have to know, is the Laura Jones in the article the Laura Johns that Reuben married?

RE: Transfer Request
Thanks Lynn for transferring. There were some errors in the bio so I am editing it. I have taken it down but will get it back up in the next few days. I am in contact with another descendant in Missouri who will help me with it.

I appreciate the work you do - many thanks.

McGinnis graves
Hi, and thank you so much for posting this family's gravesites. I am related through Julia H. Cheaney who married Strother Sisson in Henderson Co., KY. They are both buried there in Smith Mills Cemetery. I also have a tentative death date for Strother McGinnis, but not a cemetery. If you are related, I'd love to know how. If you want any of the info I have, please let me know.

RE: Darwin Lesseg
Hi Lynn:

Thanks for your note. I didn't know the protocol for listing names. I don't think my aunt or cousins would mind their names listed.

It is great you are doing so much of my family's geneology. My uncle George still lives in Brussels. He and my aunt Allegra (deceased) were the only two of my mom's siblings that stayed in Calhoun County.

Nice to find a cousin I didn't know about.

Wishing you all the best. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Love, Margaret

George T. Scott
Hi Lynn, On the memorial page for George T. Scott, Find A Grave Memorial# 134952207, there is a transcript of an obit that is identified as coming from the Alton Evening Telegraph, pg 5. I wanted to get a copy, so I checked out and the Feb. 11, 1886 copy they have only goes to page 4. By chance do you have a copy of the obit from the newspaper and if so, would it be possible to obtain a copy from you? Thanks.

Hi again Lynn,
Would be interested in knowing which Kaibels are in your family tree. Philip is my uncle; my dad is his brother. (I guess you could tell that from the fact that I am Alvina's daughter.) You did a good job posting info; it just seemed a little weird that you knew so much about us.

RE: Deer Plain Cemetery,Calhoun, Illinois
Thank you for your reply. I just checked in and found it today. We were fairly clueless when we went to the Deer Plain area. We stopped at a bar and got general directions to the cemetery, but when I got back home in CA I realized I had no way to give anyone else directions.
My family ties are to the Marshall's, Jean Baptiste, my 2x great grandfather and his brother Francis and sister Julia Marshall Auer--I noticed that there was an Aver landing road in the area and I'm assuming it refers to Jacob Auer and his wife Julia.
Originally I had planned on a week trip to trace the Marechal/Marshall journey from Ft de Chartre to Cahokia to Kaskaskia in Ill, to St. Louis and St. Ferdinand, St Charles in Missouri and finally Deer Plain in Calhoun Co, Illinois. Events intervened and we had to do the entire trip in two days. It was wonderful, but I need to go back!
Julia and her husband and Francis and some of his family are all buried in the Deer Plain Cemetery. I do not know where Jean Baptiste Marshall and his wife Christina Voisard are buried. They both died in 1853 and the family thinks it was of Black Measles, but I'm guessing it might have been one of the Black Cholera epidemics that were so common in that time. (Christina changed her maiden name to Wisner--I think because she had a brother who had been declared "insane" in Missouri). Anyway it was a lovely trip and it took me far away from today's always connected society.
Anyway enough of me blabbing on---Thanks again.

Paul Mills
Stike family book!
Beatrice Stotler the youngest of her brood. Baby sister of Jerome Stike. She did the family tree and has a bound book that she gave my son Paul Mills IV. He is 15 and very happy about this. Bea was moved from her home in Fenton to an assisted living home in Lemay, MO by her son Gary Stotler who lives in Washington State. He retired early from Boeing and wanted to get his mother in a facility where she could be looked after since she is having some trouble from Altimeters.

Feel free to contact us about the book, so we can share the information.

McIntire (#126711828 & 126711829
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you have done documenting the Scenic Hill Cemetery. The pictures are such a big help and done very well to capture the information. I am the daughter of Floyd & Dollie McIntire. I would appreciate it if you would turn their memorial over to me. Even though I've been a member for a over a year, I could not decide if I wanted to put my parents in the registry. Your posting shows that it is a great tribute. Thanks.

Deer Plain Cemetery,Calhoun, Illinois
Hi Lynn,
I visited the Deer Plain Cemetery last month, but now I don't know how to direct anyone else to the place--we got a bit turned around finding it. Do you remember what road/connecting roads lead to the cemetery?
I'm descended from Jacob Marshall, the youngest son of John Baptiste Marechal and Christina Voisard (Wisner) whose grave sites are unknown to me; however, Christina's sister Julia Marshall Auer and her family are well-represented in the cemetery.
Best Wishes,
Pat Stempski aka helenpatricia
