Bio and Links
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.

Elijah Dorris - Part III
Okay, I've lost all credibility. Something is terribly wrong with my computer. I don't know what's going on with my research information, but something very strange is going on. If only I could erase all my messages! --- Lisa Pollard Zycher

Elijah Dorris - Part II
I apologize--I see how easy it is to make a mistake. I listed the identical birth and death dates for the two Elijah Dorris; however, they are two different men. The older Elijah, son of Wm. & Eleanor, was born 27 Feb 1786 in Orange, Caswell, North Carolina, died 12 Jan 1875 in Saline, Illinois. My great grandfather Elijah, who married Mary Cook, was b. Feb 29, 1840 in Monroe, IL and d. Jan 21, 1875 Saline Co., IL. --- an embarrassed Lisa Pollard Zycher

Please see Diane Shafer's earlier comment (we're cousins). I believe the information for Elijah Dorris's Find A Grave has been combined with that of another Elijah Dorris. The son of Lewis Dorris and Mary "Polly" Bush is my great grandfather Elijah (b. Feb 29, 1840 in Monroe, IL; d. Jan 21, 1875 in Saline Co., IL married Mary Jane Cook, his only marriage. The other Elijah (b.Feb 29, 1840 Monroe, IL; d.Jan 21, 1875 Saline Co.,IL) is my 2nd great grand uncle and is the son of William Dorris and Eleanor Brown. Nonetheless, I so appreciate your putting information on Find A Grave and want to thank you for your efforts. Kindest regards, Lisa Pollard Zycher

96520353 memorial created by you. The name on the stone is Selah B. Unless you know something different I would like to get the name listed correct because there has been several problems with her memorial and different spellings and duplicate memorials. Please let me know the reasoning if you keep it as is. Thanks! Karen

I trust you received, by private e-mail, a request to link this memorial to parents.

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

Paul Solomon
Hi Linda,

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!

Shirley
