many of my ancestors are buried in the cemetery. I and my niece was just there again today taking pictures. We would like to know who owns and maintains the cemetery so we can get plot numbers and such. This is a wonderful and time consuming thing you do. Who are you related to there or Perrysville cemetery> Maybe we are kin. Thanks you again for this site.

William Riley Goodwin was my Great, Great, Grandfather. His son Charles Franklin Goodwin was my Grandmother Loleta Goodwin Milner's (1907-1970) father.

Albert Riley Goodwin is my ggrandfather. Could find no pictures but the information from M.J.H. is new to me. Thank you for the time and effort you gave in putting together and posting the above information. I appreciate the labor of love and I have information that I could exchange with you.

Again, thank you for your hard work.

Subject: Goodwin Genealogy

I don't remember getting in touch with you, but I don't always remember all genealogical research contacts and sometimes my record keeping isn't the best either.

I saw what you'd posted at the Allhands Cemetery site and know that if you are related to Albert Riley Goodwin, son of William Riley Goodwin and brother of Franz Sigel Goodwin, we are distant cousins. I have many old photos and lots of info gathered by Franz Sigel "Sig's" wife and daughter, my grandmother, Bessie Goodwin and her sister and brother Lila and Bill (actually another William Riley Goodwin) who never married. I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Subject: Looking for a grave

thank you so much for your hard work to put such great information at our fingertips. I have a death certificate for my ggg-grandmother Rene Belle ALLHANDS which states she was buried in the Allhands is cemetery. I did not see her listed on a couple of sites.
In any of the photos you took did this name show up and maybe I just can't make it out? It would have been in 1897!! She was only 23 and died of typhoid fever. She was married to a James Milton Cramer and I see many Cramer's buried there including my gggg-Grandparents James R. and Caroline (Scott) Cramer!
Any info you can shed on Rene Bell would be awesome.
