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.

Although I don't normally mess with published obits, In this case I corrected the four mispelling. One has to wonder if the mistake was made by the reporting person or the paper misunderstanding the Illinois accent. Thanks for the correction

For some reason, I cannot open this gravesite. Only one that I have come across. I did find the obit from the funeral home and I have sent it to Find A Grave and ask them to add it. I keep getting "awshucks". I have gone out, back in, shut down my computer, etc. Still cannot get into that one grave. Mystery. But give it a few days, they will add it for me. Kay

There has been a big mistake on the marking of these graves. The second marriage of my great grandfather, Sgt. John F. Morris, was to Emma Brown Wilbur. They had two sons, Wilbur and John Morris. John Morris married Eva Louise LaPoint and had six children: Wilber John, Frances Pearl, Edward Cooper, Emma Christina, John and Mary Hazel Morris. I have their birth records from ancestry.com. Eva (LaPoint) Morris married Charles Paul Betcher in 1913 Chicago. Apparently he adopted Pearl, Edward, and Emma, changing their names to Betcher, but their birth parents were John Morris and Eva LaPoint. Those three children are actually not his. Can you add this to their bios?

I have another contributor checking the two stone to read them more clearly - I will get back to you when I hear from my friend.

My comment was concerning the Son and his age - I deleted my comments as I did not agree with the dates the above person put on Eleanor Jennings memorial - no problem. My comment is gone.
|Lois and Daughters||Hillory Wright and Henryt Wright|
Can you determine the correct dates on each to make them twins. No matter what I see on the stones for their dates, I cannot determine the correct age for Hillory. These are the dates in the Cemetery Records Book Volume II

I was excited hear that your daughter was related to my grandpa. I do not know many of the Eaton's even though my grandpa and grandpa helped raise me. I would love to know how she is related. Maybe I have heard of her.

I found obit and typed it out and put in correct date thanks for finding the error
|amanda beals||RE: Eaton's and England's|
Thank you for all the work you are doing. It is nice to see the family connected on Find A Grave. I remember Nellie, Charlott and Catherine. I have a question. Can you find Homer Eatons two sisters?
