2010, I am in the process of gathering the soldiers of the Civil War 85th ILLinois Infantry Regiment into virtual cemeteries.|
Please email me if you know the resting place of any soldier I have not yet found.
Origins of Companies
B---Fulton and Mason Co.
F---Tazewell and Woodford Co.
G---Fulton and Schuyler Co.
September 2013. I have started a virtual cemetery for Mason County IL WWI Veterans.
2012 Virtual Cemetery for victims of the Chatsworth Train Wreck in my list virtual cemeteries.
I generally try to add whatever additional bio I can find when I enter a memorial, military or otherwise. I use Ancestry.com , marriage and census records, and other similiar types of search sites.
Please contact me if I enter incorrect info or links.
I enjoy taking and posting photos.
Cemetery walking involves planning, time, gas, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, assorted other bugs, dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, mud, dirt, snow, rain, dust, wind, sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, and BUCKETS of sweat.
I had to throw my lunch to a couple wild peacocks headed my way. Seems they have a fondness for egg salad.
I appreciate those folks who list their source when posting my photos to Ancestry.com :)

Hi Debra - thanks so much for adding the bio to David Cumming's memorial.
|Stephen Barneby||Walter Gorsline|
Thanks very much for the information about Walter Gorsline. I've deleted his duplicate memorial and updated the bio information you provided.
|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||Photos of Lecal's marker|
It looks like you had to do a bit of work to find his marker. Thanks for doing it. It is an unusual looking marker. Is it metal? And the way they spaced the name apart is strange isn't it. Well at least he has a marker. Thanks again for you efforts on his behalf.
|Stephen Cantrell||Kingston Mine Cemetery|
Thanks Debra for all of the good headstone photos! You're the best!

I really enjoyed your memorial of the month Deb :) Shocking, different, and kinda cute in an...abstract way

|Wayne Officer||RE: Northrup Rockwell Sr 1781-1856|
Good morning Debra. Yes, I am related to the Rockwell family. I have just started working on the Rockwell side of the family and I haven't run across an Elizabeth M. as of yet. I just want you to know how much your efforts are truly appreciated with all you do for Find-A-Grave. Keep up the great work. Have a wonderful day and again, thank you.
