Subject: Burials at Old Danville
I have several relatives that based on death years (1848-1853) lived in Danville and North Danville at the time of death. I am curious if the sextant has records on who was buried at the cemetery and if they are available. Since the family had moved out of the area at the time of the transfer I assume that my ancestors were among those left/forgotten. If internment records exisit, I would be happy to transcribe them for publication to the internet.

Subject: William Reed
William Reed was the first sheriff for Edgar and Vermilion Counties, built the first log courthouse (where Woodbury's used to be), met with Black Hawk to curb an uprising. He married Angeline Hawkins and her sister married Asa Palmer. He moved from Danville to Newtown and was buried at Old Danville. I cannot find a record of his being removed. Angeline remarried twice. Any help greatly appreciated. Nancy Reed

I once did some extensive research on William Reed (I even had a signed document by him at one time from the sale of the Vermilion Saline Lands that I wish I still had). I don't recall information about where he was buried though. You may try the building across from the courthouse; there is a place in there where all the old Danville records are kept. You may find something out in there.

I dont know much about my grandmother. Im told by my grandfather her name was Helen Elizabeth Blunckaul when she died in 1983, but i can not find any confimation to her last name or the correct spelling. I also know that she is buried in Danville IN. Her maiden name was Helen Elizabeth Dove - Mothers name Ruth Dove. If you have any info, if she is in the Old Danville Cemetary, and the correct last name/spelling please let me know by email.
