|I enjoy History and became interested in genealogy in 2001 when helping my mother search for her family. I try my hardest to post only facts on these memorials, if you do find a mistake please contact me and I'll fix it.|
Your welcome to use the information and cemetery photos I have added on here (just indicate who provided the photo and information and that it is being used with permission.) I have seen many people on ancestry.com take my photos and misuse them and also place them with the wrong people.
I would like to bring to the ATTENTION of fellow researchers on here who work very hard walking the cemeteries taking photos and posting memorials for everyone's benefit on here, I know it takes a lot of time and energy and gas and giving of one's self, I am thankful for all those who summit memorials on here BUT I have in the last 3 years found that many of my close relatives that have past away already have a memorial made for them by someone else who is not related to them. I am finding memorials for my family members made the day of their burial or the day after by others on here who are not related to them.(Do you scour the Obits in the paper and run to make the memorials before our loved ones are even buried?) When you lose a family member you are grieving and are not thinking of making memorials the day of their burial or the day after. It would be polite and respectful if you would wait a month before you place your memorials on here to GIVE the grieving family member time to place their own memorial for their loved one on here. I know there are FAG guidelines but many memorial posters on here don't follow the guidelines and refuse transfers. I have been ignored many times when asking for a transfer for sibling, parents and grandparents by people who are not even related. It seems some people are just out for the numbers, how many memorials they can contribute. Lets all remember what FAG is here for and be respectful of others, and PLEASE don't make duplicates of memorials when you are transcribing the cemeteries. PLEASE check to see if there is one already made for that person. I am coming across too too many duplicates on here and many that are not willing to delete their duplicate contributions.

|Diane Shafer||Elijah Dorris 1840-1875|
Dear Linda, Before my question I want to thank you for all of your hard work that help your distant cousins research this ever elusive Dorris family.
I descend through Lewis Dorris, then his son Elijah Dorris, and then his daughter Ida Dorris Snyder who was my great grandmother. When reviewing the property owned by Elijah Dorris and his wife Mary Jane Cook, I noticed that it was in Independence Township, and he was also there on the 1870 census. I also have probate records that lists my Elijah Dorris dying in January 1875.
My question is: Could the grave in Butler Cemetery be that of my Elijah rather than of his uncle? I find no record of the senior Elijah on the 1870 census and he would have been in his late 80's. Have you seen this grave; if not, how did you obtain this record.
It would be an easy assumption to make. They both lived in that area and were both married to women named Mary. Possibly they both did die in January of 1875, but it seems like something to pursue. I have made two research trips to Harrisburg and I'm thinking about making another with this new lead. Thanks again so much for your hard work. Diane Thompson Shafer
Dear Linda LeBarre,
I totally agree with your statement you stated regarding the respect for others who are grieving.
Unfortunately, I am one who has recently lost loved ones and wish not to immediately post due to the factor grieving process is still tender. Thank you for expressing to all.
I have a question. I have researched in the Harrisburg, Saline County, Il area for the last 12 years and added bunch of surnames to my tree. My surnames are Dorris and Gaskins. I noticed in my family cemetery, Butler cemetery in Saline County, some one has entered Andrew Jackson Dorris' fathers' name to Findagrave in that cemetery. How can I find out if he is really buried there or was it someone just thought to put his name in there. I could have done that easily 12 years ago. I found my Great Uncle Lewis Dorris in Rann Cemetery but not my Great Gr Grandfather Elijah Dorris. Please let me know, I really would like a picture of Andrew Jackson, Harriet and Henry who is in Butler Cemetery but no one goes out there as I have been told. I would but I live in California.
Ha-long drive. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts. God Bless you, Sincerely, Toby

|Shirley Ulbrich||Paul Solomon|
I just got off the phone with the youngest daughter of Paul Solomon. We had a lovely conversation. Apparently, she attends the church where her father's ashes are laid.
I had called the church Saturday, when I couldn't locate a gravesite. This morning, the secretary of the church returned my call to inquire about the reason for my call. She then explained that the daughter was very interested in speaking with me, so I agreed to receive her call.
I gave the daughter your email, so I'm sure she'd love to compare notes. She's not familiar with genealogy, and is quite curious about your findings.
Anyway, I'm sure you'll be receiving additional details about this side of the family, as she was quick to share that info with me.
Good luck in meeting a "new" family member!
I maintain so many records and make so many changes for other people that I have no short term memory for what I have done. For your additional family link requests, please use the edit tab, which will provide me a direct link to the memorials you want me to work on.
If you want to maintain those records yourself, send me a request, again using the edit tab, and I will be happy to transfer them to you.
All the best!
Hi! I've made the transfer as you requested. Have a great day!
|Linda Cardenas||RE: William Kopepassah|
I only find the one memorial that I created. You will have to give me the spelling of the other name. Does it have a picture attached?
|Linda Cardenas||William Kopassah|
I don't find another memorial. In what cemetery did you find the other one?
Hi Linda, I was contacted yesterday from a nice lady who has photos of LeMarr's in Oak Hill Cemetery in Palmyra, Illinois. She has the original of Sarah and an earlier version tintype of her. She also had some Crum-Wills cemetery records that she sent to me. We went to Crum-Wills last summer, not easy to get to!! I will have to look there again and compare notes. If you are interested email me and I will email you her email@example.com. That's me. Take care,Connie
Added his parents to the memorial, thanks for the info!
