Looking for any info on burial site for Lillian(Lillie)WILSON born 29 July
1871 or 1873 in White co, IL...possibly died in 1926...Husband Needham
buried next to 2nd wife in Stoddard Co, MO....Lillie's parents Joshua Hamilton
NELSON and Lina (McClain)NELSON-McMULLEN...mother buried in Orange Grove
I don't think we have a match--my Andrew Kirk was born in Indiana, lived in
Illinois and died somewhere in Missouri. Good luck with your research. My
Kirk family also has Moore's in it (my g grandmother) and I can find nothing
I read everything about viruses that I see, but I still don't understand them
completely. Would somebody please explain Ronnie Moore's e-mail that I sent
a pfi file virus about Fat Fat Fat. I have opened no attachments (I even
have my e-mail set not to accept them), nobody else has complained about
receiving such the Fat Fat Fat message from my address, and my virus scan
came up with nothing. Help!
It's a virus that has been going around for about a month. There is a
good explanation of it at Rootsweb.com home page "Virus Alerts".
I received 9 messages with the virus attached but opened none of them.
NO ATTACHMENTS are allowed through any Rootsweb list so normally you
would be okay--but the virus will "steal" the "Sent from" address and can
throw you off you if you are not careful. As the earlier messages
indicated, it can also appear it is a message in response to something
you have sent to someone. The explanation in Rootsweb is quite good.
The messages always say "Look TO the attachment" rather than "Look AT the

Looks like this Andrew Kirk is gona be as hard to find as Thomas P.
Moore. Andrew Kirk m. Alvira/Elvira Moore I think in 1891, after Thomas died
he died in abt 1883 or 1885. In White Co. They also went to Ar. abt 1914.
then Andrew came back to WHite Co. where he died in 1929? I'm not sure of
the dates my files are some where else right now Thanks again for looking

Jeanette, I don't see it listed, but maybe this will help anyway. Maybe in a
neighboring county . . . .?

I may have ask this before, but does anyone have the 1900 WhiteCo. census
and could lookup Andrew kirk. He may have been in Hamilton or Saline Co. but
my file says White.

Sometimes I use a Soft bristle brush depending on the state of the stone.
Whatever you do, DON'T use bleach. It will only disolve the limestone and
add to its destruction. You can rub moss off with your hand wearing a
cotton work glove.
Maybe you had a response to this already. [I'm behind the times, but
pedaling as fast as I can.]

I have had no problems with the census and census indexes I have bought. My
indexes came from Ancestry (now MyFamily.com), but they are as slow as
molasses in January. They told me it would take 5 to 8 working days me to
get an order of 3 CDs, but it took a month. They said they didn't bill until
the items were shipped, but the billing occurred in accordance with the 5 to
8 day schedule. They shipped in a padded envelope and all of the jewel cases
were cracked up.
I placed a large order (over $300) with Genealogy.com for miscellaneous
information CDs, paying for them with the mailed order to prevent "order now,
pay later" syndrome. They deposited my checks -- lost my order. That took
two months of very frustrated phone calls to get them to ship my order. They
had no record of my order, and I heard every excuse in the book. Learn from
my mistake -- don't order unless you can get a confirmation number.
I ordered my census CDs from Heritage Quest on a Thursday, and they arrived
on Monday -- in a box. I believe they were the ones who stated that the 1880
censuses were not stored properly for a lot of years and, therefore, the
images were not as good as images from other census years. The CDs were
digitally restored from the Archives' copies. I guess that means they are
about as good as they will be -- except never say never about emerging
For the benefit of anybody who hasn't tried these products, one problem with
the actual census CDs at this point is that they have no search engines for
finding specific surnames. Within a year or so, I think we will begin to see
the census CDs powered by search engines. An "older" technology could be why
the current census CDs are relatively cheaper than they have been in the
past, but I'm sure that will change for the newer technology. Accessing page
numbers in a census CD is like thumbing through the pages in a book, except
you are mousing through them very rapidly. If you use a census index CD
first to find the page number for a particular person, it's a piece of cake
to find that person on the actual census CD. I have my own microfilm/fiche
reader, but nobody hates to read microfilm more than I do!
