Elisha's Wife
Looks like ancestry has Elisha Webb's wife as Catherine Webb who lived in Miller Township where the cemetery is located in 1860. When Catherine dies in March, Elisha marries Clarissa Archer in Adair County in May and moves to Clay, Ralls County by 1870. Check this info on Census lists to make sure Ive got it right.

Old Turner Cemetery and Elisha Webb
Hello Gary,
I spent the day at the old turner cemetery and recorded all of the stones and took pictures thinking that it was not recorded on Find a Grave. After looking on ancestry I contacted PTurner and was given info that I was wrong. I am in the process of removing a cemetery called Turner Cemetery that I had started to create. I am so glad someone is taking care of this great old cemetery.
Anyway, while recording the stones I came across the Elisha Webb stone and like you recorded it that way, but then looked closely at the broken piece. I believe it is actually the stone of Elisha's wife. The stone seems to have broken just below her name and right through the words "wife of." I love mysteries and may try to find out who she is. I'll try to find a way to send you a picture that may show the lower half of the words "wife of" at the broken top of the stone. Kyle Bridgman

RE: St. Patrick Simpson's
Sorry it has taken me so long on this. What cemetery did you end up with for Benjamin Leo Simpson? Wonder why he would have been buried somewhere else if he died at St Patrick?

RE: St. Patrick Simpson's
I have cleared one of my photos on Mary Eugena Ellison Norton so you should be able to add one now. Find A Grave charges for more than 5 photos.
Also, on Benjamin Leo Simpson, I got the information from the Clark Co Cemetery Records.

Kathyrn E. Carson Jacobs-Hendren
Hi Gary,
Kathryn is at Greenwood and she is buried with her first husband, William Warren Jacobs. She is listed on his stone. I have changed her name to just be Kathryn E. Carson Jacobs to reflect what is on the marker. I had hyphenated it because that is what was in the obit. If you want to post the photo that is on her husband's page on her page that is fine. You are the one that posted on Mr. Jacobs page. Thanks for looking for my Greenwood people.

RE: Cambridge obit.
I think you should make the trip to St Patrick. Where do you live? I live in Springfield IL.
