I am a recently retired school teacher. I've been doing genealogy for the past 30 years. I recently joined the Find a Grave website.
I have completed photographing and uploading all the stones from the Little Rock Township Cemetery in Plano, Illinois. I still have about 10 pictures of very old faded stones that I will use the burial index to identify, but that project will wait until spring. If you wish any of the entries transfered to you, please email me.
The Griswold Cemetery south of Plano has now been completed. There are a number of unreadable stones in the cemetery. I have tried to identify them using an early reading of the cemetery, so that is why some stones may be hard to read.
Fowler Grove Cemetery north of Plano has been completed.
Elmwood Cemetery is Yorkville is totally uploaded, thanks to some assistance with some of the stones.
Working on Pratt's Oak Law and Oak Ridge in Sandwich. Pratt's has a great many partially buried stones and who knows how many totally buried.
PHEBE ELIZABETH TRIPP #44526738 You have attached a photograph of a stone that does not match the person who is memorialized, or the stone has the wrong year of birth ... Phebe Elizabeth (Swartout) Tripp was born in 1829 and the stone reads 1843 as a year of birth.
Francis T. Miller Since you posted the picture of the tombstone on this grave I will start with you. I have reason to believe that this man was the second husband of my great-great grandmother. The Francis T. Miller I am interested in has his father buried in this same cemetery. I notice that it says on stone died....but the date is covered up. If you live within a reasonable distance and should go to that cemetery again could you please attempt to tell me the death year, then I would know for certain if this is the Francis T. Miller I am in search of. Thank you for any help in this matter.
Heartfelt Thanks Thank you so much for letting me maintain uncle Earl, aunt Mary, and baby William Underwood's memorials. Your kindness has touched my heart. Thank you for creating their memorials, and for all that you do on Find A Grave. Blessings Always Donna
RE: Edits in Oak Ridge Hi Anne, I decided to see if I could add more information to the Oak Ridge Cemetery book I keep up-to-date and have gone through all of the Oak Ridge find a graves. I have added a lot of information to my records and wish I would have started from the beginning to suggest edits, as there are quite a number of them. I also have quite a few names that are not in the find a grave lists. I see you have been adding more as I have been working on them. Sometime maybe I can go back and suggest more edits, as I only suggest them if the obit says different or the gravestone says different. I need to take a break from it until after the Sandwich Fair. Have things to do for that now. Thanks. Joan
