Bio and Links
I have been studying the genealogy of our family for over 30 years. My mother-in-law got me seriously interested in genealogy by giving me the book "History of the Hershey Family" by Scott Funk Hershey. The book traced the history of the Hershey family. She is listed in the book and it followed her direct line, as well as others, back to the 1600's. In addition to Hershey, our family includes the Kellogg, Corrie, Johnson, Nickerson, Cheney, Rees, Poppen and Albrecht families to name only a few, some famous and a couple infamous. We are connected to a lot of families buried in the Wabash Presbyterian Church Cemetery, where my mother-in-law is interred along with her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Other family members direct and indirect are interred in cemeteries located in Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland and Wabash counties in Illinois as well as in South Dakota, New York, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio and other states and countries.

Some of the information/obituaries I post on my memorials, or pass on to other contributors, may be found in the Lawrence County (IL) Public Library's genealogy department.

I am happy to transfer any memorials that are not a part of my family.

Hi. I found my father's record long ago which had his obituary and I added pictures. They are all gone now. Could you transfer this record into my name?

Lenora Raymond Wilcox #105732127

I am interested in what source or records you have access to that confirm she is buried in Harper Cemetery in Wabash County. The only record I have of her death is, the Illinois Statewide index, but no list of a specific cemetery.

All the pictured grave markers on findagrave for that cemetery in fact coincide with another complete online list of confirmed graves compiled in Harper Cemetery.

There are no Wilcox graves on that online cemetery list. And none of the 4 Wilcox graves you have listed on findagrave have pictured markers to confirm. Therefore, because the other list which was compiled apparently on site in 1999 doesn't have record of any Wilcox graves, and I have found no record stating that Lenora is in fact buried in that cemetery, then I have doubts that there are any located there.

The reason I inquire is because I already have a memorial for Lenora Raymond Wilcox created in 2011. Unless your memorial can be confirmed to be for an actual burial located in that cemetery, then my memorial should take precedence and yours would be considered a duplicate.

Thanks for your understanding!

Links to 105652949
Thank you for your memorial 105652949 for John Henry Wood.
It's possible that the links of memorials
105650292 Robert Wood and
105651489 Ethel E. Wood
105652949 John Henry Wood (1869-1937)
may be in error.
This John Henry Wood was married to
119625671 Rose May Hammaker about 1888-1889 per 1900 Census and they were still married at John's death in 1937 per his obituary and probate. Therefore it is unlikely that he was the father of these 2 children in 1896 and 1900 by Clara Luvilla (Campbell) Wood per their memorials.
Because Clarence Wood 105705932 is also buried in Nye Cemetery, I suspect that his link to 105652949 John Henry Wood as a father may also be incorrect.
For what it's worth, Illinois marriage index shows Clara's marriage was to a Woods, not Wood:
1890-03-11 - Vol E, p125 - #929 - WABASH
