Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just someone hooked on family research - I transcribe records for a genealogical society as a volunteer, have been working on the death register for a few years.

Since I don't live where my ancestors/relatives are I have found this site very interesting and helpful.

Thank you to all who take their time to make this site as great as it is!

reminder to me: to add a relative other than parent/s or spouse/s: XXXX put in mem# - Name put in person's name

Different cemetery
Okay ignore the below entry. After seeing if any of the other names in the book were listed in Lafayette Cem 1 I could not find any so I checked out Lafayette Cem 2 which is just up the street, someone has created memorials from this book with the following note:

"By 1847 [Lafayette] No. 1 was reaching capacity, and it was deemed that there be no new burials in the original cemetery."

I have not seen that information before but maybe during the epidemic they were not adding more?? They do have burials to this day in Cem 1.

I do not see a memorial created for Johan Ennis yet on Find A Grave in Cem 2. I have seen where the records for Cem 1 and Cem 2 have been combined but with that statement above your person could be located in Cem 2.
Have a great day.

RE: Question??
New SPP is now called Resurrection. Double check me but I think it says that on the main page for the cemetery. Personally I think Old SPP was getting mixed up with New SPP

I got the information from New Family Search or from my own personal records.
