My philosophy is that since this is a grave site memorials should reflect information shown on grave marker. I will add other info in notes if sources are provided.

RE: ebenezer cemetery
No clue. I had never heard of it and didn't know there was such a thing until I read his message. I guess I can pose this question here and anyone who knows the answer can chime in.

Is there any charities, universities, whatever that have funds (grants or otherwise) for cemeteries (i.e. their upkeep)? I know of one that is more overgrown than not. These stones are 17 & 1800s. I would think from either a historical or genealogical stand point someone somewhere would want to save them!

If I were younger and owned a Weed Whacker I'd do it myself! LOL

You are very welcome Marjorie. The area there is very historical. I am glad I could get those for you. :)

I've added the links you requested. As these folks are your family, I would be happy to transfer management of Ethelena's memorial to you. Let me know if you'd like me to do that.

RE: Amanda Williams
Marjorie, I am just about done with what I would like to see added to Joel T. Martin's Find A Grave Memorial. You are not alone in your belief that Find A Grave is not the place for biographies, yet I still find it amazing that people believe that when the Creators of Find A Grave are the ones that set up the site to put amazing biographies.
I love to see biographies there because people can see then for free. People like me can not afford even the monthly cost of Ancestry so as much as I would like to use Ancestry, I can't. Even more reason to LOVE Find A Grave.
You can see what I currently have on Joel in the cemetery where he is buried. I am trying to get the information about his brothers and sisters added to their sites, but, if people don't want to add it, they can't be forced to. I would love to see the Joel's biographical information and the information about his service added to his, if you aren't too strongly against it. I know there are many people like me that don't have access to Ancestry that in the future will be glad it is there as well.
Thanks for all you are doing. Baxter

Marjorie, I got a little bit done on Joel's biography, but I have to stop and get ready to go to church. If I get a chance, I may work on it late this evening. Do you have any photographs of Joel? Baxter

I will just set up a temporary site for Joel that I can work on and then delete it after we transfer the information to your site. Good to hear from you. Baxter

Dear Marjorie, It has been a long time and this little email leaves Peoria with prayers that it finds it's way to you and finds you doing well. I am glad to see that you have management of Joel T. Martin's Find A Grave site.
I continue my work on the 86th. I have been at this now for over 32 years and have now identified the final resting place of 912 of the 992 men who served in the 86th. I am certain I will continue my search for the final 80 until the day I die.
I also to write about and to "tell their story" to all that will listen. I would like to put a nice biography together for Joel and get it on his Find A Grave Memorial. I promise I will work quickly and get him back to you shortly if you would consider a "temporary" transfer. My ultimate goal for all 992 men was to find their grave, set up a Memorial with a detailed biography about them and their family and service and them to get them in the hands of interested descendants. Joel's is there in good hands now and I want to keep them there, but, would consider it a great honor to add his biography to his site.
Again, I hope this finds you well and thanks for considering this request. Sincerely, Baxter #47203738

RE: 103436254
A couple of years ago, you wrote and asked how I know he was William RILEY Green? I got that information firsthand from my grandfather when he took us to the Mount Pleasant Cemetery for the first time back in the early 1970s. We also know from a marriage certificate in Hamilton County IL from 1833 that his middle name was Riley, as well as his death certificate from 1881. Hope this helps.
