Surname: Brothers, Alvah, Myers
I am searching for James Brothers who had a few children settle in Jackson
Co., IL. He may have been married to Mary Alvah about 1863.
I am passing this information on to the list hoping it may help someone!
Did you have a relative buried through the CULLINANE FUNERAL HOME in St.
Louis Missouri between the periods of:
6 September 1928 and 14 June 1930
28 April 1942 and 17 April 1944 (may include Funeral Notice)
If so I have acquired the Funeral Home arrangement sheets for these
periods and will provide scanned copies of the sheet.
This funeral home has been closed for many years and may provide:
Cause of Death
Date and Place of Birth
Birthplace and date
These are the only time periods.
I will need:
Name of Deceased
Date: of Death or Burial
Pass this on to other lists that you are on.
Some Data on cemeteries
Surnames of Interest: BUCHHOLZ anywhere
I am forwarding this from another list. The cemetery is being moved due to
airport expansion in St. Louis County, MO.
BRIDGETON MEMORIAL PARK
This burying ground at 4616 Long Road was made into a memorial
park in 1962. In 1959 several lawsuits were filed against the City for
allowing the cemetery to deteriorate. Individual stones had already been
removed "through error and misunderstanding" but members of the Bridgeton
Historical Commission were able to learn the names of some who were buried
there and a large monument was erected in 1963 which bears this inscription,
"We honor the people buried here. They were part of this nations adventure
and their vision lighted the path we follow today." At the dedication
ceremonies, Mrs. Anna Wilson gave a talk about colored veterans who are
buried here. Records indicate that the cemetery was integrated from its
beginning in 1958. It was in use as late as 1954 and at least 100 people are
buried in the two acres. On the bronze plaque of the monument are the

Does anyone know the location of, or have any information on
Collier Farm Cemetery in Murphysboro, IL ?
My ggg-grandfather, Stephen J. KELLEY, who died in 1847 is buried there.
Other surnames connected to this family include COLLIER and MAXCEY.
Thanks for any leads,
Could someone please tell me who owned the hardware store in Makanda in 1914? Did he also serve as undertaker and boxes for burial were made in the back of the store? I have done researching on my Grandmother Elsa/Eliza (Kinnard) Thomas for a long time. She was born 7 July 1885 and died 15 Nov 1914, married John C. Thomas in 1906 after first marrying James Hicks. We have a thick black memorial card for her but doesn't give the undertaker's name, just hers and a verse. The name of the company is at the bottom and after contacting them, was sent an article stating that the co. distributed them across the country to undertakers. Black was for the older, and white for the young. They had 5 children, but 1 died in infancy. We have birth certificates for some of them, one being the last that was was born in May of 1914, also a letter that she wrote to her sister from Makanda 3 days before she died. We had someone down there researching this, but they came up empty handed. Said the!
y seemed to have fallen through the cracks in the censuses. She was buried at the home place by a peach orchard and I have a picture of her grave with the trees in the background. I have been to her grave, but later owners let it grow up until I can no longer find it. Does anyone have a list of all the abandoned cemetaries around there? She was buried with the baby son, but there might have been others.
We have so much proof, yet none. I'm sure you've all been there. PLEASE, if anyone knows anything about the memorial cards, abandoned cemetaries or any of this, contact me. Would love to hear what you know about it, and also who owned the hardware store. Sorry to make this so long, but was trying to get all I could in :-) I'd love to live down there and do some foot work. Thanks to all for your patience.
Ladies & Gentlemen,
There has been a lot of discussion on many of the mailing lists to which
I belong regarding the site: "www.familydiscovery.com". I feel that I
should make you all aware that this site is a subscription site that is
charging for access to free sites. As far as anyone can tell this site
has no original information of any kind.
It uses a process called "shrink wrapping" that causes any page
displayed to look as if it is their site. You can see an example of
shrink wrapping by visiting http://www.askjeeves.com. No matter what
link you choose the askjeeves information is displayed on your screen.
The same is true of the
What this site is doing is not illegal, but in my opinion, it is
I am not posting this information to open up a discussion on this
subject on the list, I am posting it to inform those of you who are not
aware of the situation.
I have finally moved beyond one of my brick walls, Sarah Curtis DENNIS. Now I need info about Henry and Ruth CURTIS, her parents. Sarah was born in Elkville about 1838. She married George Nathaniel DENNIS in 1856 in Richview, IL.
Please give me anything you might have about Henry and Ruth. So far, I am coming up dry with internet searches.
The description for Lee's land is "The Southwest fractional quarter of
section fourteen on the island in township nine south of range five west in
the District of Land subject to sale at Kaskaskia." It says the General
Land office of the United States, a Certificate of the Register of the
Land Office at Kaskaskia. Is this related to the ranges for your ancestors
land? Did the Mississippi change course so that the land was cut off from
IL? I know it has done that. Would you know the year it became part of MO?

Surname: MOSS, PARISH, PARRISH, GARNER
My ggg grandmother, Lucinda MOSS was born in the Illinois Territory August
15, 1807. Her family was attacked by Indians and all were killed except
Lucinda, age two, and a sister who were taken captive. Friends of her family
were able to find and rescue her, but I can find no word of her sister.
The Garner family of Jackson County.
Who were her parents and siblings? One of the earliest census lists for
the area show a William MOSS, but I do not know if this is a related family.
The fact that Garners raised her rather than another MOSS family would
suggest that there were no other blood relations for her.
Lucinda married Thomas PARRISH and raised a large family in Jackson County.

Surname: DAVIS, PARISH, PARRISH
Need any information at all about Elizabeth Margaret or Margaret Elizabeth
DAVIS, born May 25, 1835 in Kentucky and married to Braxton Monroe PARISH
in Jackson County IL May 6, 1856. I have no parents or siblings for her
although there is a very large number of DAVIS families in the area. I
just cannot attach her to any of them. The Parrish family in that area
was very large.
Look at your land descriptions, what township, etc. I have copies of land patents
referring to " on the island" and in my case it is referring to Crain's Island, just
across from the mouth of the Mary's River. This island like Kaskaskia is now
attached to Missouri.

I live in Chester, IL across the river from Kaskaskia Island whuch is still
there although sparsely populated but there is also an Island outside of Grand
Tower called Sandy Island, Grand Tower Island, along with other names

I just got a copy of a land patent dated 1838 for an ancestor Richard Lee.
It describs land "on the island" but does not say what island. Someone
elso told me that he owned land on an island. Could this has bee the
island of Kaskaskia? I remember visiting a site somewhere in Randolph Co
years ago that gave something about the history of Kaskaskia and told about
a great flood that washed away the town. Is any of the island still there,
or could this be another island? I don't live in the area so don't know
much about that geography.
