Even as a child cemeteries have fascinated me. I remember begging my Mom to drop my brother and I off at the Lexington Cemetery while she ran errands, so we could look at all the different headstones. I have even been known to take side-trips to little "off the road" cemeteries just to see the old stones. Of course, this gradually turned into seeking out my "family tree". Unfortunately, I didn't get serious about genealogy until around 1997 when my daughter needed some genealogy information" for a school project. As most of the relative that "knew" the information had passed, I have been slowly piecing together many generations of my family tree. |
I found "Find A Grave" when I was doing genealogical research and lo and behold someone I had been "stuck on" was listed with a photo of their headstone!. I was excited to say the least! Since then, I have been trying to do my part here by listing relatives and taking photos of headstones when time allows.
The main names in my family are as follows:
(Paternal - Mainly Central Illinois, France, Germany) Moncelle, Harms, Reinholtz, Grove, Neirgarth, Brooks, Geiger
(Maternal - Mainly Southern Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, England) Burr, Ward, Paugh, Green, Woods, Martin, Cook, Herrick, Colbert

I was excited to find some family in the Scrogen Cemetery at Lexington. Little Nancy Rolston's grave though, is hard to read with some grass covering one of the letters. She is the daughter of -?- and S Rolston. Can you help?
Thank you so much, Marilyn
Thank you Teri. I appreciate you so much for the transfers I asked for. God Bless You in all you do. Sincerely, Juanita
I see that you have the Geiger name listed, I am related to the Geiger also. Let me know if I can help you on that side. Also in the Gridley, cemetery you have some Kearfott list, I am a Kearfott and those that you have are my Grandparents,

Good afternoon! I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to ask permission to use images you've posted in the Lexington & Scrogin cemeteries (Janes, Hefner, Flesher & Campbell). I'm developing my family website and would love to post these to the database. Thank you so much!
May I have your permission to use your photo of Lexington Cemetery on my ancestry.com family tree, with attribution to you? Thank you very much for your consideration. Gwen

Sophia Baldwin Bear 79127964 is the daughter of Elijah Baldwin 57331035. If you could link her to her father, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, did her biography on her memorial come from a newspaper originally? I was so excited to find her memorial because I haven't been able to find much about the Baldwin family.

Could you please use the following information in the description for Mason Union Cemetery?
Mason Union Cemetery was organized June 1, 1880 from land furnished by Calvin and Louisanne Layson. When you look at the cemetery from the road, the "left" side of the cemetery is considered the older part, with many of the graves having been moved from OLD TURNER CEMETERY, which is less than 1/2 mile south of the Mason Union Cemetery. According to the book "Effingham County Illinois, past and present", "One should not be confused with dates on graves and monuments in Mason Cemetery, as there is a reason. The older TURNER CEMETERY, scarcely a half mile south, furnished many of the occupants and their grave markers. During a period from 1905 to 1909 Tom Flick and Henry White moved many from Turner."
The best proof I can offer, besides the book and County Clerk Record in Book 20, page 447, is, my GGGrandfather, William Colwell died Dec 1879, and is now buried in Mason Union Cemetery, but Mason Union Cemetery was organized in June 1880.
