Not sure If I sent you a response. Thought I would try again. It was very nice of you to ask, but I take pictures to help people. If you would like to use them, you certainly may do so. Happy Thanksgiving. Dawn

YES! I believe Rev. Pavel Negovan is either a great grandfather or a great uncle. I didn't know he was in Oak Hill, too.

Thank you!

Leona Morgan
Look in findagrave for her as Leona Morgan Smith-buried in Masonic Oddfellows Cemetery in Benton, IL. You will find a daughter, I believe, Loren also buried under the name of Loren Morgan Smith. They are in the same plot. There is another man,
James Daniel Smith in the same plot. I found an independent grave survey for this cemetery:

SMITH Elizabeth J Block F-Lot 156-Space 1-Internment #2738
SMITH Dudley Block F-Lot 156-Space 3-Internment #4654
SMITH Howard L 5 Dec 1911 1 Apr 2005
SMITH James D Block F-Lot 60-Space 9-Internment #4712
SMITH James Daniel Block F-Lot 156-Space 2-Internment #4071
SMITH Jessie R Block F-Lot 23-Space 10-Internment #7507
SMITH Leona Morgan Block F-Lot 156-Space 5-Internment #8906
SMITH Loren Morgan Block F-Lot 156-Space 6-Internment #2479
SMITH William Henry Block D-Lot 36-Space 10-Internment #8426
Hope you can make sense of this!!

RE: Morgan family

Ruby Murphy, grandmother of Gail Gordon, passes away at 108

By Cbrush | 07/08/14 3:48pm

Ruby Murphy, grandmother of state Sen. Robert Gordon’s (D-38) wife, Gail Gordon, passed away yesterday at 108, PolitickerNJ has learned.

Born in 1906 in Benton, Illinois, Murphy was Illinois’ oldest living resident. She lived long enough, friends and family say, to recall living through some of the nation’s most historic moments: Pearl Harbor in 1941, women’s suffrage movements in the 1910’s and 1920’s, and Illinois’ last public hanging in 1928.

“What I found fascinating about her is just the amount of American history that she saw,” senator Gordon said of his late grandmother-in-law. “I remember asking her, ‘Ruby, who is the president you remembered,’ and she said Teddy Roosevelt.”

A devout Christian and staunch conservative, Murphy was married twice. Her mother and her sister lived to 109 and 105, respectively, and at 100 years old she changed her name to Elizabeth. She is survived by Mrs. Gordon, who fondly recalls her grandmother’s fervor for participating in the political process.

“She certainly believed in exercising your right to vote and stewardship and those things that some people don’t believe in anymore. She never missed a vote. The last person she voted for was Romney,” Mrs. Gordon said. “The only Democrat she said she’d ever vote for was Bob.”

“But she was a good person and lived every one of her 108 years and will be missed,” she added.

Murphy would have been 109 in October.

Guess Leona lived to be quite old, too, if I read this right.

Thank you, Shelly, for taking this picture and posting it. Special thanks go out to you for your dedication to do this with all that snow on the ground. If you are in the cemetery on a nicer day and you have the opportunity to take that picture again, great! However, you do not need to make a special trip to do so. I have what I was hoping to get.

Thank you, again.

Hi Shelly,

Of course you are welcome to use the photo's of the Wallace memorials however you would like. I'm sorry that Lloyd's is so heavily covered with lichen. I never do anything to alter the stones, other than brushing off loose debris.

Happy Thanksgiving!
