In response to Paula Hartman:
St. Mary's church in Spencer's Grove is not standing today, but the
cemetery is still there and I believe you will find your relatives
together. The church was originally built as a frame building around
1873. They rebuilt the church in 1898 and it was incorporated in 1912.
It was a very active parish for many years. The last services were held
there on October 26, 1969. The new church was built in town (Urbana)
and dedication services were held on November 2, 1969. Linda Burke is
the parish secretery and I'm sure she will help you with any records you
need. Also, I have several old photos of the church and a painting of
it on the Urbana Alumni site website, which I will be glad to share with

I am new to this list. I am looking for information on St. Mary's Cemetery in Spencer's Grove, and also the Spencer's Grove Church and Spencer's Grove Cemetery. My Great Great Grandmother Angela Kleitsch Buehler was said to have been buried (according to her obit.) in the Spencer's Grove Cemetery in 1950. Her husband, Albert Buehler, dying the following year in 1951, was said to be buried in St. Mary's Cemetery in Spencer's Grove. If these are 2 different Cemeterys, I wonder why they were buried in 2 different Cemeteries?? They were married in 1889 in Spencer's Grove Church. I would also love to find a picture of the Church. Is it still standing?? I am doing this research for my Grandmother (Albert and Angela's granddaughter) and am hoping to take her to the Spencer's Grove-Walker area to visit the graves in a few weeks. Any information would be appreciated. Thank You! Paula Hartman
