Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a genealogist and local historian, I have been researching the people and communities of central Illinois since 1975. My special interests are the early settlers of Sangamon and Menard Counties, IL.

I am also the webmaster for World War II Marine Photographic Squadron VMD-154. This USMC squadron was stationed at Camp Elrod on Espiritu Santo Island, New Hebrides (now known as Vanuatu) in the South Pacific. Flying in B-24 Liberators on aerial reconnaissance missions, this squadron mapped the South Pacific and monitored Japanese activities. I have another site here at Find A Grave under the name VMD-154 Association that is devoted entirely to the deceased members of this squadron.

Through Find A Grave, I have been able to memorialize some of my ancestors and early settlers of several central Illinois counties, as well as the brave men of USMC Squadron VMD-154. If anyone can add further details or photos for the individuals in my memorials, please contact me.

If you have time, please leave a flower for my mother, Mildred E. Hart Naschinski and my father, Emil Fredrick Naschinski.

Daniel Hart Letters
Can you send me a copy of Daniel Hart's letter of May 22, 1864? I'm compiling the story of the 129th and the Battle of Resaca, but starting with their enlistment. So anything about their experiences will be helpful. I have letters and diaries from several sources already but often little details reveal new parts of the story when added to details from other soldiers. Looking forward to hearing from you, Bob Miller.

Old Sackett Cemetery
I now have the directions to the cemetery. I am wondering if you had access to some sort of cemetery plot map as many of the graves listed are unmarked??

Bless you. I have been searching for my gg grandfather's grave all my life. Please give me driving directions to Old Sackett Cemetery.

Even my grandma, born 1880, couldn't remember where it was. Thank you

Did you read the age at the bottom of this marker? If possible in the future try and brush the leaves away from the all the inscription. This stone looks like it might have been partially buried up past the age. Just wanting to know if you confirmed that it said 9 mo, 8 da old.
So awful to lose children and so many did.
