Blanche DeMoss
Could you go to Blanche DeMoss and do the edits--if there is a problem, please let me know. Her maiden name was Peterson--I know that for a fact. I suspect that her grave now has a death date on it. Thanks. Wm & SJ. Donath #48116482 While I do not necessarily want this transfer, if you want to do so you can--not really related, but I plan to get her obituary when I can.

Grace Wilson
Colleen, do you, by any chance, happen to know if the Grace Wilson who you managed happened to live in Ottawa and taught piano lessons? Do you know if she has a husband buried in this cemetery? I knew a Grace Wilson when I was a child, I know her daughter very well, but don't have any information about Mrs. Wilson, I can't even remember her husband's name any longer. I do remember that he owned Wilson's Electric if this woman was his wife. She is the only Grace Wilson who is buried in LaSalle County and is of the age that she would be when I was a child. Thank you, Colleen.

Hi, I just got a notice thanking me for my edit for Julia Richardson #33482596. It's odd because I don't recall requesting that edit and don't really know who she is. Just thought I'd mention it so you can double check the info, tho it does look okay from what I can tell. I'll recheck my records too.

Riveriew Cemetery
About 1/2 the obituaries that were donated to our library for Riverview Cemetery have individuals that are buried at Riverview. I am submitting those individuals that are in the cemetery. I will submit all additions through the EDIT option at the memorials. I would greatly appreciate you doing this editing. I will be working on these obits when I have time. I teach the staff at the library where I work and lecture in the communities in the Phoenix area, but would like to continue to add as many memorial info as possible. Thank you for your consideration.

Burdalls at Fox River
Hello Coleen,
We have done a read of Fox River and added photos to Find A Grave. We found some duplicates of the Burdall family. Andrew, Ellen, John J, and Secillia all have two memorials. We added our photos to the earlier memorials. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

RE: Infant Osgood - Riverview in Marseilles
Thanks for your quick reply.

Infant Osgood is listed as Find A Grave Memorial# 33335991. There is no photo of a grave marker associated, so I am uncertain of the source of the reference.

I answered part of my question by looking at the photo associated with Beman F Osgood, who is the name on the left side of the headstone.

There is the word "infant" on the right side, but since there was no date info I had assumed it referred to the two names listed above. I could be mistaken on that point.

So my question, more refined, is where the date information listed on the web site comes from for "Infant Osgood?", or for that matter, any others.

Part of my interest is to also confirm that all the following are engraved on the same monument.

Simon Toll Osgood - # 33336156
Louisa Candace - # 33336091

John Louis Osgood - # 33336019
Ivy D (Deming) - # 33336005
Lucy Little Osgood - # 33336103

Edgar G. - # 33335780
Francis W. - # 33335945
Infant - # 33335991

Beman F - # 33335686

BASE: (front or rear?)
Catharine Toll - # 33335724

Infant Osgood - Riverview in Marseilles
I see that there is record of an Infant Osgood at the Riverview cemetery in Marseilles, LaSalle, Ill. However, there is no photo. There is a date shown of April 12, 1884.

My question is whether this is an inscription on the left side of the family headstone for Simon Toll and Louisa Candace Osgood? I can see there is writing on that side from another photo, but there is no direct photo of that side.

The time frame would match some possible siblings from that family.
