Bio and Links
Bio Photo I LIVE IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS & HAVE BEEN DOING FAMILY GENEALOGY FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
I ENJOY TAKING PHOTOS OF HEADSTONES FOR OTHER FAMILIES WHICH ARE TOO FAR AWAY TO VISIT THE CEMETERY.
I ADD THE NEWSPAPER OBITUARY (WHEN POSSIBLE), WHICH IS A HELPFUL TOOL FOR FAMILIES WANTING INFORMATION ON A RELATIVE. BEFORE ADDING MY INFORMATION, I CHECK FIND A GRAVE VERY CAREFULLY AS NOT TO HAVE A DOUBLE ENTRY.
GREAT WORK IS BEING DONE WITH FIND A GRAVE. MANY FAMILIES HAVE A CHANCE TO RECONNECT WITH THEIR ROOTS.
(2010-2012) I HAVE WALKED, TRANSCRIBED, & CREATED NEW CEMETERY REFERENCE BOOKS FOR THE MOULTRIE CO. GENEALOGICAL & HISTORICAL SOCIETY. CEMETERIES I HAVE TRANSCRIBED ARE: GREENHILL, MASONIC HOME, FRENCH, GRAHAM CHAPEL, TURNER & KELLER. OTHERS ARE ON MY LIST OF 'TO DO'.
I AM WILLING TO MAKE TRANSFERS WITHIN THE 4 GENERATION "FIND A GRAVE" GUIDELINES WHICH ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer. PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
For EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS I will gladly make additions, corrections or links.
PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send the information.

RE: Greenhill Cemetery, William Bath Patterson
Hi,

Thanks so much for your quick reply and for adding the headstone photo to his memorial! Awesome! I show William's birthdate to be abt Sep 1849 (based on age listed in 1850 and 1860 census records). If the headstone and/or cemetery records show he was 12Y 1M 26D old at death, that would make his death year 1861. It appears the headstone is really worn, so it may be really hard to decipher the death year. What do you think?

I appreciate your time and assistance!

Thank you,
Sandra Bathe Cole

Hi,

I was referred to contact you by Janet Donner. She mentioned you had walked the cemetery and taken photos in the last couple of years and you might be able to help me.

I am trying to locate any information or headstone photos on Find A Grave Memorial #34360001, William Bath Patterson. I believe he is the youngest child of my 3x great grandparents (James Bathe and Malinda Powell Bathe). James and Malinda both died around 1853 leaving 6 children. The children were split out among family members. William Bathe (born abt 1849) went to live with David & Polly (Harbaugh) Patterson. Polly Harbaugh was a sister to Sara Harbaugh, who was married to John Powell; John was Malinda Powell's brother.

I feel fairly certain that this is the William "Bathe" I am looking for, but wondered if you might have any other info or possibly a photo of his headstone.

Thanks so much for your time and assistance!
