Subject: Location of my grandparents grave
Thomas Oscar and Henrietta Swisher are buried in a small cemetery near Bismark, Illinois. I have been there many years but, I did not write the cemetery name. The funeral record for Thomas Oscar simply says cemetery Bismark Illinois. I am sure there is more than one cemetery. I would like to determine the correct location.

Subject: Tombstone 1331 Henrietta _ Hollingsworth
First of all let me commend the work done, to photograph all of these tombstones, etc., I don't think I could have done such a good job. This notwithstanding, regarding tombstone #1331; I was wondering if someone could physically go to it and either transcribe what is engraved thereon, or photograph it again, (or both) maybe at a different angle, and or better light, etc., so that one could more easily read the sentiments, etc., engraved on it. I've tried to enhance the photo, with the programs I have, but still can't make out most of it. Because I am some 2,500 miles away, this would really be appreciated. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, so either the transcribed engravings or a photo (both would be better) can be sent to me there. I am not a blood descendant of Henrietta, but of who I believe to be her husband, Martin G Hollandsworth.

I too am descended from the Luckey tree. I am going to Rose Cemetery in a few days and will be looking for Sheets and Luckey. I will post an update.

Subject: Drollinger/Phillips Grave locations
I have been diligently trying to find the graves locations of my great grandparents Malcolm and Cynthia Phillips Drollinger for several years now. Along with my great great grandmother Julia Luckey Phillips. They have no stones to be found and finding anyone who has old burial maps or plot maps had been fruitless. If anyone can help locate these graves at Rose it would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: Rose Cemetery
Thank you for your work here - having been there many times, I know the old section is in terrible shape and you have done an excellent job taking, and indexing these pictures. Too bad we don't know how many old stones, or pieces of old stones are buried beneath the sod. I know that my gg grandparents are buried there, but there is no visible stone. But, thanks to your hard work I will be able to easily locate the stones of his brother and another of their young children. I feel guilty - you did the work and I will benefit!! If you do get into the 'restoration' work, the old part of Rose would be a challenge. Kris Loseke
