alexander wilson hamilton
you reference alexander as being buried in presbyterian cemetery. he fits the description of my ggggrandfather as to location and time. I find a number of references to his middle name, wilson, but have not been able to locate any documentation regarding this name. Also, did you find a gravestone for alexander in the cemetery? any info you could share would be appreciated. also, he is supposed to have located in Ruffs Dale Pa. shortly after is arrival in america in 1793, but i find no record of him in westmoreland co in the 1800,1810, 1820 or 1830 census records. any info would be appreciated.

Alexander Wilson Hamilton
Hi Sharon,
I have been doing extensive work and research on the cemeteries in Andover, Illinois - documenting all the headstones and then photographing all of them. I also have records from 60 plus years ago and have found no one by the name of Alexander Wilson Hamilton buried in Andover.
Do you think that you might have him listed in the wrong cemetery?
It is stated that he died in Atkinson, which is about 35 miles from Andover. That seems like quite a distance to transport a body for burial back in the 1800's.
I just thought it might be something for you to look into.
Have a nice evening,

RE: Roose Headstone
You are welcome. I believe the other Abraham Roose stone is missing. I need to recheck my records, but i thought it was supposed to be right next to the one i took the picture of

Request for photo of Nathaniel Wise Stone
In 2011, my wife with me tagging along, photographed all the markers in the Americus Cemetery for the Flint Hills Genealogical Society. No photograph for Nathaniel Wise not his wife appeared in the photographs we took. Their names did not appear among the list of names we had for interments in the Americus Cemetery.

Think we could have well overlooked the marker of one or both, I checked the Emporia today to see if there was any record of Nathaniel Wise and his wife.

First, checked the Tombstone Inscriptions for Lyon County, Volume 9 (Americus Cemetery) done by the D.A.R. in or about 1950 (Volume was published February 1951). Nathaniel Wise and his wife names do not appear in the records.

Next checked the index of obituaries for the Emporia Gazette (the local paper). I found the obits for Nathaniel Wise and Kerrenhappuch McDill Wise, his wife.

I got the microfiche film and read the obits. Nathaniel's information appears in the 13 Oct 1913 and 14 Oct 1913 edition of the Gazette. Kerrenhappuch Mc Dill Wise obit is in the 28 Sept. 1915 and 30 Sept 1915 of the Gazette. Both obits state they are interred in the Americus Cemetery.

From the obits on both, I'm surprise there is no memorial stone for either since the D.A.R. did not document the inscription and I could find no other record of their burial including my wife's photographs.

There is a link to the Americus Cemetery from the Flint Hills Genealogical Society website if you wish to look:

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

RE: Nick
I would! Thank you. I would like to see what is there. The place he was from changed its name in early in the last century.
