Warrenton K Spiller memorial 25647867
May 15, 2016

Hi Patricia,

I found this link researching a different Warrenton King Spiller, and saw that the memorial was placed by a Hooper.

I am very distant relation, as my great grandfather Richard Hooper came from England in 1857 with his wife Nancy Jane Cummons, son William James Hooper (age 6), a niece and a nephew. By 1873, Jane had died, and Richard re-married, to Margaret Jane Cox, had several children, including my grandfather, and left for California, where they had more children. I have found that William James Hooper stayed in Williamson County, Illinois, where he was a businessman and lived until 1930. William James Hooper did not go with his father and step-mother to California, as he was getting married to Virginia Anne McClintock at the same time Sept 1873).

Do you suppose that some of the Hoopers in your research are related to William James Hooper?

I would be interested in communicating if you are willing. Recently I got DNA results that related me to an Olive Spiller in Williamson County, whom I think must be related to Nancy Spiller, the grandmother of Margaret Jane Cox--all in Franklin or Williamson Counties.

Any information or questions would be welcome! Thank you, and best wishes.

RE: Eliza Ann Ginger
I am sorry; I am a novice at this! I am looking to prove Henry Ginger Jr 1802 - 1902 was the father of Eliza Ann Ginger. His memorial # is 124208961. Eliza married many times and went by several spellings of her name. But on the information page it specifies that Henry Ginger Jr. had a child named Eliza Ann Ginger. If you are not the person in charge of this memorial, is there a way I can find out who is? Thanks so much for your time; I appreciate it!

Eliza Ann Ginger abt 1824
Patricia: On the gravesite of Henry Ginger Jr (1802 -1902) Eliza Ann Ginger is isted as the daughter of he & Nancy Tetrick. Can you tell me if there is documentation to support this? I am desperate to find this.

Thank you.

I noticed on John's monument that his birth date is 24 Jan 1869 and you have it as 1870. Just wondering if the stone was wrong.

Bowelsville Cemetery
I was wondering since you have many memorials in the Gallatin County area, if you would know what cemetery is "Bowelsville, Gallatin, Illinois" It's listed on Illinois death index as the cemetery where Thomas Harry Brazier's mother is buried, but I can't find the cemetery it is referring to, thought you might have an idea.
