RE: Henry Gowen Headstone
It was my pleasure, Bev. He had a beautiful memorial. That was one of the prettiest and most peaceful cemeteries I've been to.

Edwin Davis Cockrell
Hey there bev. I came across your posts concerning your step-father Edwin Davis Cockrell and couldn't have been more excited. Edwin is my great uncle on my mother's side. Her father was Herbert Meredith. She has done some fairly extensive genealogy research over the years, but for various reasons had to put things on hold for a while. I'm now trying to help her pick things back up and continue further research. I live about 10 miles from Auburn and have made a couple of recent visits to the cemetery. I would love it if we could communicate further. I would also love to pass your name on to Momma if that's ok. Please contact me thru my email if possible as I'm a newbie to Find A Grave and still trying to figure out how to completely navigate around it. Again.....SO EXCITED to have come across you and will look forward to hearing from you. HUGS!!!!

Elizabeth ? Hunt
Source; Indiana, Marriage Index, 1800-1941

Name: Alexander B. Thompson
Spouse Name: Elizabeth Carson
Marriage Date: 19 Feb 1843
Marriage County: Shelby

Your right I got info from others on ancestry, she must have married a number of times, thanks for the death information, I just went to that death record and found her maiden name was as you said, Patterson, father Benjamin. that's what I get for not following through with the added research. I guess I was more interested in who John Y Hunt married as his first wife who was my line Amelia Amanda Collins. Sorry about the mix up, thanks again, Marilyn

You are welcome. I can retake and post ones with no sprinklers if you would like. Or perhaps add to these photos I have already posted.

RE: Cockrell Headstone
We noticed that she is buried with her son who died first and survived by nieces and nephews only. We decided after we went that when we get our stone ( whoever dies first ) and prepay for the engraving of both dates. My Dads was blank for at least this long and then when the date was added the year was wrong. My sister kept telling me she would get it done, and then a friend of my Moms did it. Thanks, you got us thinking. We will keep checking and let you know if it happens. Take care, Connie and Wayne

RE: Headstone for Harold Leroy Edwards
I doubt there was a marker for him because I did cover the entire cemetery.

RE: Roger L Smith Sr.Memorial #77238918
Sorry, I typed the obit as is, and I do not know if the Kagel is Florence's maiden name or another married name. I did see her obit and Gabbert stated as maiden name. Roger's obit had as survivors a brother John Smith and a sister Sue Hoover. I left the living children and siblings' name out as per guidelines. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Hank Cox
RE: Cox family
Yes, my family is all from Kentucky; no pretty much about it. My grand parents are named Slusher, Parsons, Boatright, and Cox: all four branches arrived in the Bell Co./Harlan Co. area in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Mostly farmers and, then, in the early 1900s, coal miners.

Some of them migrated from North Carolina and Virginia.

Thanks for asking.

Hi Bev, I just got in my car to go down to Auburn Cemetery to find Florence and brought it up on my phone and saw someone put a picture up yesterday so I will take my claim down so she can claim it. I thought I was going to get down there a couple days ago, but got busy. Take care, Connie

RE: Iola Mace Headstone Poto
I see them. I will look through the 250 photos I have left to post & see if they are there but I'm doubting they are. Those graves look like they would be in the old part and I began with the newer part. But I will be going back in the next 3 or so weeks so I should be able to find them at that time.

RE: Iola Mace Headstone Poto
You are quite welcome. I'm slowly making my way through Hawfields Cemetery, photographing & making connections. Your request happened to be in the batch I photographed on Sunday. If you have anymore requests from Hawfields let me know. I will be going back in the next few weeks.

RE: Patton Cemetery -Divernon,Illinois
Patton Cemetery is near me but quite overgrown and not accessible by any road. I took a couple of scout leaders to see it today as they have a scout interested in doing a cemetery project. There are cows and electric fence surrounding it and it has not been cared for. Their thoughts are that they might change the goals from a cemetery restoration to a stone discovery project. They need to do it while ground is frozen, before it is overgrown, and before crops planted. If they decide to do it, I will come in at end and photograph all stone found. The folks that now own the land are not related to the people buried there so upkeep not high priority although it is fenced off from the cattle. When I entered the names, it was from the work of Floyd Barringer back in the 1960 as he set out with a number of other volunteers to document the cemeteries of Sangamon County. The stones were there then and transcribed. Many still may be under the brush. I am not related but I think I will wait to transfer until after the scout project if it develops. I know that some were among the earliest settlers of Sangamon County and I work with a woman that has family ties to the cemetery. Please check back with me in 4-6 weeks.

RE: Headstone photos of the Stults,Brackett and Blackburn
Hi again Bev, We went today before the big snow we are getting tonite and tomorrow, we passed a hearse and when we got to the cemetery there was a tent and a truck blocking the drive. So we left and went back later and when we found the graves realized it was with the new burial. I also took a photo of Samuel and Lucrita Patton who are I think Margaret's parents. Sorry for your loss and you are very welcome, Connie and Wayne Auburn, il

I think you sent this message to the wrong photographer. I have had no request for a Johnson.
