Do you know where their graves are located? We know about where they are but not exactly. They don't have a marker. Thank you Joanne

My great great grandfather , Lorenzo Dow Spencer is buried at David Cemetery (1873) and I am just wondering why. I don't think he is related to any Davis'.

I have been trying to find a record of the death of my Aunt, Maria Adelgina Mosesso, born April 9, 1913. She lived at the Casparis Stone Company in Fairmount and my Dad said she died at about 18 months-about October 1914. Do you have a list of names in the Davis Cemetery? I just wondered if she may be buried there. Any other suggestions as to where to check?
Thanks for your time.

Jane Ferber- I am a direct decendent of Jane Conner and Azariah Davis. They were originally from Ohio and came through on horseback and purchased land in Vance Township at $1.25 per acre. His parents, Henry and Rachael Pollock followed a little later. Henry's father was also named Azariah and was born in 1756 and died in 1839. He was a Revolutionary War veteran. He married Elsie Van Metre. I have some other info if you are interested. hageman@fairpoint.net if you would rather email me.

The Illiana Genealogical & Historical Society, here in Danville, IL, gave me the passing date of Azariah Davis as March 7, 1857 at the age of 49 years 2 months and 4 days and his first wife, Jane Connor Davis, as April 15, 1842 at the age of 33 years, 8 months and 5 days. These dates were taken from a cemetery reading done back in 1979. There were no birth dates on the stones but if you do the calculations back Azariah has a birth date of January 3, 1808 and Jane August 10, 1808. I was looking for the date Davis Cemetery was established, so if Jane Connor Davis was the first to be buried there it is "relatively safe" to assume it was established in 1842.
