Subject: Trimming a tree

There are many reasons to trim a tree, ranging from healthy maintenance to avoiding property damage to purely aesthetic value. Depending on the purpose and the desired result, this can be approached in various ways and achieved through different methods.

Subject: Is Goodwine Cemetery the same as (New) Salem?

I was reading through Jack Moore Williams� and Lottie Jones� books The History of Vermilion County, and noticed there was once a town called Salem. They say it was east of Goodwine Cemetery. It is also south of Jamesburg and east of Higginsville. Where is Goodwine cemetery? Is it New Salem cemetery?

Subject: Names on gravesites

I have been searching for the burial site of an ancestor. His wife is buried in FaIRMOUNT BUT THE CARTAKERS SAY NO ONE IS BURIED NEXT TO HER. I can't find a death certificate and I am out of ideas. Do you have names of people buried at the various cemeteries?

Subject: Offutt's


in searching through all the photos I for Georgetown Cemetery I found 3 Offutt's on two photos. I had to go that route as trying to search the site listed no results. I have created three Memorials on Find a Grave, and would like to have the grave marker photos there if you are willing. The first is for Steven G. Offutt Find A Grave Memorial# 121162623. The second is for Sally Offutt, Find A Grave Memorial# 121162666. The third is Mary Dorothy Mendenhall Offutt, Find A Grave Memorial# 121162680. I also would like your permission to attach copies of the images to my genealogical data for these three people. If I get your permission the photos would be up on my Web Site on the Offutt Family

Subject: James D Jones & Georgia Dixon Jones


I am researching my family tree,my Great Grandmother was Anna Mabel Jones, I have been researching her family tree, which is very
hard because her last name is Jones! Her Father was James D Jones birth March 1861 possibly, Ohio was were he was born, it is different
in each census. I have no date of death, Her Mother, was Georgia (Maiden name Dixon ) Jones born 1864 or 1866 in Indiana, again, no death
date. They lived in Danville, Vermilion, IL from 1900 to 1910. Anna Mabel Jones siblings were Frank Jones, Lola Jones, Clarence Jones, and Myrtle Jones.
I would appreciate any helpful hints as I am about ready to give up on this tree. Thank you so much
