Hi,I too am obsessed with gelaenogy & cemeteries (member of & Find-a-Grave, etc.) I have several ancestors from Pope, IL & surrounding area, but have not been able to locate where some of them are buried. My ggg-grandfather was Dr. Joseph Russell Pitt, who lived in Pope, IL from 1853 until his death on 1/7/1883. He was married to Ann (Carney) & then Margaretta (Keef). His father (my gggg-grandfather), (Russell) Kinchen Pitt, also lived in Pope from 1860 to 1870 & then went to Masaac, IL. He was married to Elizabeth Bula/Betsy (Elder) & was a friend to Abraham Lincoln. Just wondering if you have any info on them or have run across their graves? I have a lot of census, military & marriage records, but can't find their cemeteries!!! I'll be happy to buy a book if they're for sure in one of them ! Thank you so much for ALL YOUR WORK!

I find the graves of my great aunts, Ruby Bloomer Winans and Jean Bloomer Beers, among your photographs but where are the graves of their father, David Bloomer, his father William Bloomer, Daisy Bloomer and Ransom Bloomer. I thought they were buried here.

Thank you for taking pictures of the Swicks and Winfields.I grew up down street from cemetery and have not been able to visit for years.
Do you have the old Pate cemetery outside Carlin documentated? Lot of Thomas's buried there 180 years ago including
"Chyce Thomas" born in Wales, whose head stone fell over in the 80 years.
