Bio and Links
I was born in Du Quoin, Perry, Illinois in 1946 the second child of George Walker Hinman and Mary Evelyn Bigham. My dad was the 3rd of 8 children born to Claude Lester Hinman and Freda Newton Clodfelter. My mom was the 2nd of 7 children born to James Gilbert Bigham and Zoe Eliza Trefftzs.

I am related to several families in Perry County, Illinois on my mother's side. And also many families in Warrick County, Indiana on my father's side.

Hi Zoe

I have added photo and plot info. Thanks for noticing the omission.

RE: Galum Presbyterian Cemetery
It is, indeed, a small world. I currently live outside Coulterville - halfway between Coulterville and Swanwick, as a matter of fact. I grew up about 3-4 miles directly south of Denmark - and my daughter is ready to leave for college in Romeoville, just east of where you are now. I'm not well-acquainted with many Bighams, but do know of a few around. Perhaps some day our paths will cross! If I have created any memorials that are your family, extended or close, from the photos I have taken, let me know which ones they are and I'll be glad to transfer over.

Have a wonderful day - and if you need any photos around the area, please let me know! Stephanie

RE: Galum Presbyterian Cemetery
It is a very peaceful place, indeed! It just makes me sad every time I go that the church is gone. Where, if I may ask, have you landed that's 300 miles from here? I went to school in the Quad Cities which is about that far, and am sending my daughter to the Chicago region soon to start school, also about that far. For me - the pull of home got too strong after a few years and I ended up pretty close to where I started! Grew up in Campbell Hill now residing in Coulterville -

I think this is all good-to-go now. Sorry I missed your memorial when I was uploading the photos I had. One of these days I want to get back out there and finish up with pictures of all the rest of the stones. Wish there was more time in the day (and maybe a few less of those things that I HAVE to do everyday, like work and such!). Hope you have a great Monday!

Please go right ahead. I didn't realize when I posted that they were both on the stone. I will probably not be able to find my original file anytime soon, so please copy and repost. Best regards, Steph

PS: Transcriptions
Or if the stone & monument are hard to read - I'd have to send for both if they were dif. info of course.

RE: Emma Patterson
I re-ck'd the pics of stones and not sure if it has the m in Wm on the original grave stone. So it may not be dif. after all. But the pt being is that it would be best to use the transcription of the original old stone that's hard to read & I think in this case I didn't want to delete what you already had. What I'll do in the future is replace the info on a family monument with the info from an old grave stone that's hard to read when I send an edit req.
