Many of you have made cemetery look up requests.
I shall get to them, I promise, right now with the holidays upon us it will
just take a little longer. I will get to all of them you can count on it.
I know what it's like to request a look up and then sit by the computer
hoping it will come through at any minute. Please be patient you will hear

There is a Mary E. Jones 1848-1925 buried at Sumner Cem. She is beside C.B.
There is no Mary Elizabeth Jones listed. There is also no James Kenneth
Jones, no Kenneth Jones, no J.K. Jones. Etc.
There are no Easterday listings in any of the cemeteries.
The C.B. Jones buried beside Mary E. may create more questions than it

I have a copy of Irene Black's cem. book. I purchased it direct from Irene in October of 2002 for $45.00 and at that time it was my understanding that I bought either the last one she had or at least close to the last one. The address that I had for her is;
Bridgeport, Ill. 62417
Rather or not she has any left I have no way of knowing. It is really an indispensable resource regarding Lawrence Co., genealogy work
The busiest time of the year is upon us but I am still willing to do any cem. look ups that any of you might have as time allows. I have done so in the past for many of you. Most, not all, of you didn't bother, however, to even drop a line back and say that you got the stuff. As temperamental as e-mailing and computers are it would be nice to know after I go to the trouble of looking something up on your family to at least let me know you received it. I sat here one night until midnight scanning pages out of this book for one of you. Scanned them, placed them in my document file, e-mailed them all out as an attachment and never heard rather they were received or not. Not looking for accolades just a little common courtesy.
Now that that is off my chest if any of you that have dead relatives in Lawrence Co., Ill. and would like a cemetery look up done feel free to ask me. I really am glad to do so. I don't live within 300 miles of Lawrence Co. so please don't ask for cemetery pictures etc. Please contact me direct. It makes it easier.

I know that after their marriage they spent most of their lives in the
neighboring county of Richland.
Any help on finding these two lost ancestors would be greatly appreciated.

Henry and Mattie (Burnett) Fredeking are buried in Sumner....Henry died in
1935; I don't know about Mattie. Is there anyone who has any access to the
particulars on these two people.
Ultimately I'd like to know where Mattie was born, who her parents were, and
when she and Henry died. Also, at what cemetery are they buried?
Any help would be appreciated.

I just joined and I'm looking for info on the family and descendants of Isaac W.
I would like whatever cemetery info there may be on him and his family. He was
still living in 1870 and was living with his daughter, Nancy (Hunter) Gould and
her husband William T. Gould. Isaac was last married to Sarah M. Moore in
Lawrence county July 28, 1847. She was apparently deceased before 1870.
In later posts I'll ask for info on more of his descendants, but for now
anything on Isaac and Sarah or William and Nancy (Hunter) Gould would be wonderful.
I am looking for information about Isham Caudle who I found in Lawerence Co Ill. in 1850 Census? I believe he moved from Lawerence Co or to Lawerence Co Ill in 1850. Is anyone have any land records or other records for Isham Caudle and Family?
According to the Lawrence Co., Ill. Cem. Bk. by Irene Black;
Byron Glover; 1900-1951, buried beside; Mary Emma Glover; 1899-1937;
Harry Glover; 1887-1958, buried beside; Arabella Glover 1889-1970, she is
buried beside Ray Eddington Glover GM-3, USNR, W.W. II. June 10, 1916-April
Harry Oliver Glover; Sgt. Co., F, 6th Ill. Inf. W.W.I.
Nov. 20, 1893-Aug. 8, 1955. He is buried beside;
Lulu I. Glover, 1871-1950, she is buried beside; George W. Glover,
1863-1944. Lawrencevillle Cem.
They are all buried in the Lawrenceville Cem. but in different sections of
Hope this helps.
