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

RE: August Greamba
Hi Lynn, I just got this obituary yesterday. This is for Norah Jane "Peggy" Greamba (Young) Crowther, the daughter of Augustus Greamba and Phebe Jane (Clark) Greamba. I hope that this helps!

My Son acquired the Heisser family book from Bea or Beatrice Stotler who is the youngest and only one left of the Stike brood. Bea's son Gary who lives in Washington State moved her from her home in Fenton, MO to An assisted living center in LeMay, MO.

My 15 year old son Paul Mills 4th is just thrilled. He got his Genology Merit Badge and is hooked

RE: August Greamba
I have requested an obituary for Nora "Peggy" (Greamba) Young Crowther. I will let you know if it has some good information in it. Perhaps we can tie Peggy in to her parents as well.

I saw that you had so much information, and that you obviously had been researching the Greambas for a while. I just felt like you should have whatever I else I could find for you. :)

August Greamba
Hi Lynn, I am working with a researcher in Pueblo County, and I saw photos of the gravestone for Augustus Greamba and Phoebe Jane (Clark) Greamba. I found that you had posted significant research information on Find-A-Grave about August Greamba and Phebe Greamba, including a listing of their children. Based on the tombstone photos, there is a monument to August Greamba and the grave of Phebe Jane Greamba in Roselawn Cemetery, Pueblo County, Colorado. They are both listed on the stone, although I'm guessing that, based on your information, the body of August was never recovered. Their daughter, Norah Jane Greamba, married Dr. James M. Young, 1869 - 1917. I found a record of their marriage online in the New York Medical Journal, dated May 18, 1901. They married in Denver on April 30, 1901. Later in life, she went by Peggy. She was buried in Roselawn Cemetery under Peggy Young Crowther. Based on the tombstone of Dr. Frank Crowther, also in Roselawn, she married Frank Crowther, who was a prominent dentist and also a member of Congress, elected from New York. He served in Congress from 1919 - 1942. He moved to Pueblo in 1943. I'm not sure when Peggy and Frank married, but he died in 1955 and she in 1964. You may contact me at Thanks, Jean

Rosa Jones
I could not correct the information on Rosa Jones of Calhoun County, Illinois.

Information verified with 1870 Census and Missouri Marriages 1750 - 1920 and Children mentioned under mothers mem#40054045.

Rosa Jones
Married John V Jones on April 17, 1884 in St.Louis, St Louis County, Missouri

Rosa Jones maiden name is Seiferman.

Parents: Nicholas Seiferman mem#40054117
Antonia Arnold mem#40054045

I would do the changes; however, I do not understand how to perform that edit function.
With great appreciation for your assistance, Gloria

RE: Enoch Jordan
Hi Lynn, I forgot to mention one more piece of evidence from the 1910, Hulen, Comanche County, Oklahoma, federal census. Enoch is actually listed by his father's name, William B Jordan {Should be Enoch}. I wonder if the census taker knew William as Enoch's father and just made an error. Anyway, he is listed as being born in Missouri, 1883. Also listed:

Lulu Jordan 24 (wife)
Elmer L Jordan 3 (son) (buried in Highland Cemetery, Lawton, Comanche County, Oklahoma, where his Grandparents William and Sarah are buried)
John E Jordan 2 (son)

In 1910, William B. Jordan (widowed) was living with his daughter Lydia Skillman, in Lawton, Comanche County, Oklahoma.

I am pretty confident that the Enoch and Lula Jordan buried at the Fee Fee Cemetery, in Bridgeton, are my relatives.

RE: Enoch Jordan
Oh my. There is sure a conflict Lynn and I apologize.

Apart from family 'tradition,'that my cousin Enoch died around the St. Louis area, this is what I have:

The 1900 Park, Kingfisher County, Oklahoma, federal census of William B. and Sara E. Jordan, listed my cousin, their son, Enoch Jordan, 16-years old at the time, as being born in Missouri, March 1884 (or thereabouts).

In 1918, Enoch's WW#1 registration card shows him living in Stephens County, Oklahoma, which is the next county over just a bit south-east of Commanche County where he was raised. His wife is listed as Lula Jordan.

All of Enoch and Lula's children are listed in the census' as being born in Oklahoma, and at least one son of theirs, Dolph Dean, died in the St. Louis area.

I will delete William B. Jordan and Sarah Ellen Anderson as I continue my investigation.

Thank you Lynn and God bless you!

Agness (SCHENCK) CAMPBELL in Scenic Hill Cemetery, Grafton IL

I recently came across some detailed info that I'm trying to verify. It says my gr-gr-gr-grandmother is buried at Scenic Hill Cemetery in Grafton, Jersey county, Illinois.

I entered the info - but would like to check it against cemetery records if at all possible. Perhaps there are some local newspapers that might have an obituary - but I haven't found them online.

Anyway - here's a link to the memorial I created. I'm hoping that it is correct.

Salem Cemetery in Black Jack MO
I notice that you've done quite a bit of work in the Salem Cemetery in Black Jack, MO. Do you know of any online index/database for that cemetery? If not, would you be willing to do about six lookups for me?

Thank you,

Thank you for the extra info for Lena Jansen. We must have cemetery ESP - I was just working on linking up all my memorials in that cemetery!! Freaky~~~~:) I was thinking about you earlier today... I borrowed a book from my dad called the "Marriages of Calhoun County 1825-1982" - you may already have it, but if not and you need any look-ups please let me know.

RE: Herbert and Olga Krueger
Thank you again.

Since your site is Find a Grave.. my family line of head stones stops abruptly. My grand parents Herb and Olga were the last to be buried. All who have passed since had chosen cremation....Since there is no head stone how would you go about listing any information for those who were cremated or would you? Just as an historical record kind of thing.

Hi Lynn

Don't mean to be a pest but I noticed an error.
The Ruff's lived in Salem Township, of Auglaize County, Ohio. You have Twp & County reversed. I appreciate that you care about how the data is presented.
I was a presenter at a genealogy workshop at my public library a while back. We had a History Professor from a Michigan university as a speaker. She said," Be sure to be as accurate as you can be when publishing data. You may be the only one in the current generation who will do it. Your children don't usually care about the "Family Tree" but your grand children and those after them will care"! It's up to us!
Have a great day, Dave

I was working on Powers family trees when I found the branch buried in the Scenic Hill Cemetery in Grafton, Jersey, Illinois.

I saw that you had mentioned that you couldn't find William Franklin Powers' headstone.

Could it be that Frank Powers (Find A Grave Memorial# 126993753) is the same person?
