Hello to all,

1858 in Sparta was married to an Ann Lou Trefftzs 10/30/1887 in Perry Co. I
knew nothing of this. If anyone has any info on these two, please let me know.

I am trying to locate information on burials in the Sacred Heart Cemetery,
DuQuoin. A letter to the church in March has gone unanswered. Has this
cemetery ever been copied? Is there anyone willing to check their records
for me? I am looking for Owen and Hannah Reddington who lived in St. John in
1880. I do not find them after the census. Their daughter, Hannah Cecelia
Reddington Rogers, is buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery. I thought maybe they
were buried there as well. Would certainly appreciate any help.

I am trying to find family of Oscar and Elsie Lacy. The following children
were put into an orphange after the death of their parents of Tuberculosis.
Eddie, Sally Florence married a Robert Lyle Phillips in DuQuoin, Illinois,
Velma and Opal Pauline. Oscar and Elsie are buried at Coulterville along
with two other children, Cordelia and James Oscar. If anyone can help would
like to hear from you.
Mr Bud Shook of Du Quoin has given me permission to let you guys know that he has a FREE Booklet on the folks from Old DuQuoin. A complete listing of all Lot Owners and the names and location of aproximately 1,300 persons buried at the Old Du Quoin cemetery since 1815.
Donations would be appreciated to help with cemetery maintenance.
His phone # is 618-532-3537.
