Thank you do much for the wonderful pictorial of the Fairview Cemetery, Sidell, IL. I visit this cemetery regularly and care for the graves of my grandparents, Charles and Ella Guthrie and my parents, James and Lucile Guthrie. I also visit the graves of two children of Charles & Ella who died in infancy--Orville and Anna Lulu. One stone was damaged--that of Anna Lulu--but when I was last at Sidell in early May, 2015, Anna Lulu's stone appeared to have been repaired. Every blessing to you!

Thank you so much for sharing this. While I have been to Sidell many times (my father was from there), and already have the pictures that I needed from this cemetery, I appreciate the hard work that has gone into doing this! I have often thought about doing it, but it seemed totally overwhelming to me. I am glad there are people like you who just do it!

I know my 4 times Grandmother, Nancy Ann Reily Stanfield is buried here. The stone would be old, she passed away in 1886 so I am having trouble reading the marker, but I believe I saw some other Stanfields in this cemetery. I will visit this coming spring with my father. Thank you so much for your hard work.

Thank you for all your hard work and time with this website as I believe this is the best one I have encountered. It is easy to navigate and and the information is useful. The pictures are fantastic. I was able to find 15 graves of family members in the Fairview Cemetery. You made my search very painless and "fruitful". Again, thank you so much.......

Thank you for you work building this web site. You have done a great deed.
Thank you for sharing your work.

I have two uncles in the Fairview Cemetery. Sam and Eugene Huskisson.
I remember as a young child visiting the Cemetery with my grandmother and aunt.
It looks so much nicer then years ago.
Also two Babys are buried near Sam and Eugene's graves with no headstone.
They are my Aunts children that died very young. She could not afford headstones.
They are Kenneth Ronk Jr. b: Sept. 9 1939 - d: Sept. 9 1939
Anna Mae Ronk b: Feb. 4, 1941 - d: Feb. 16, 1942
That is all the information i know. Thank You Again
