de la Pena
I noticed you left a flower at the grave of Sidney East, which I manage. What really caught my attention is your name. My cousin's husband has been using Family Tree DNA, which has matched his paternal line to de la Pena families. If you don't mind my discussing dna with you, please contact me at

RE: Ely Cemetery #3
HI, Janet!

My paternal great-grandmother, Virginia Martin, grew up in Perry. She died in the early 1930s. Her Gallaher and Martin lines were among the first white settlers in the MO territory. She married William Russel, and they moved to Jacksonville, IL, in the 1880s, around the area where various lines of my family, including more Gallahers, have lived for the last 200 or so years. My mother was a Russel, and both the names Martin and Gallaher continued to be used in the family until my generation.

Thanks for the good advice. I will follow up on it. I want to have all my ducks in a row, because we have a lot of territory to cover, and only about a week or so to do it. We are driving from NY, and have stops in TN, KY, MO, and IL, before we need to get up to WI in time for my mom's 90th birthday May 21st.

Regards, Mary

Ely Cemetery #3
Hi, Janet,
I am planning a genealogical road trip through the Midwest in May, and I plan to come to Ralls County. Do you know where in Ralls County the Ely Cemetery #3 is located?
I am hoping to visit Ely #3, Muldrew, and Big Creek Cemeteries. Any information is welcome, as I have not had any close family in that area for generations.
