Regarding the memorial you created for Olive Jones at Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville, Ill I noticed a memorial there for Thomas Jones in location 0, 0, 9 that I believe is the husband of Olive Jones but I can not be certain. I am confused by the Block 0, there is no block 0 at Oak Hill at least on the cemetery map. Can you explain?

Oak Hill Cemetery Taylorville, Ill.
On some of the Smith entries it states no stone. How do you know who is buried there?

I'm seeking information on Margaret Smith death: 1/24/1931. Her husband Alexander Smith died somewhere between 1910 and 1920. They were in the 1910 census in Grundy County, Ill. and in 1920 census, Margaret and 2 of her sons were living in Kincaid, Christian County, Ill. I'm pretty sure this is her, but I don't know where Alexander died: Grundy County or did he move with Margaret and sons to Kincaid? You do show a Smith that died in 1913, but no stone. Could these two "no stones" be next to each other?

Would appreciate your help. Thank you.

Julia Watkins Atkinson grave memorial
As an addendum to the message I just left. I just had a thought. Could the "Watkins" have come from the fact that she was married to "W.Atkin-son". Perhaps the "on" was faded as the marker is so old?

Denise, thank you so much for adding the photo of Joe and Mary Perona to their memorials! Mary is my grand aunt and I was happy to see that her photo is on her headstone.

RE: Rogers, Edwin Ruthvin
Got interrupted, and msg got away from me.

This family may be a link to a long mystery in our family. I'm looking for a live decendant who has a record of who Mary Margaret McIver's mother was, and when and what happened to her. I have Matilda Cain or McCain. Her father William Donald McIver married again, but we don't know if he was widowed or divorced, or when and where Matilda died.

Other children I could not find in Findagrave were:
Ida Grace Rogers Hunter m:Charles W. Hunter
Mariah "Marrie" Rogers Wilkinson m:Joseph Wilkinson (found Joseph)
And Emma Rogers

Thank you again for your kind deeds. Hopefully, I can help you someday. You can write me direct at

Thomas Kiley
Dear Denise, Thanks to you I have found my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Kiley who died Mar 10, 1914. Would you by chance have access to the cemetery records to see who purchased the plot or might be buried near or next to him? Any family name attached to the cemetery records would be a helpful clue. Thomas Kiley was the Jockey who rode atop Spokane, the famous KEntucky Derby winning race horse of 1889. I descend from the owner of the horse and the Jockey. We lost track of Thomas Kiley and have had such a hard time finding him. One newspaper clipping we have says that he died on March 11, 1914 in East St. Louis, Illinois. This is how we know you have our Thomas Kiley. This cemetery is too close and the death date and name are more than coincedence. Thank you, Thank You, Thank you. Jacoby
