Subject: Looking for Lorenna C. Biddlecome

Hi -

That is a lot of photos!

I went through all of the photos looking for Lorenna C. (nee Redpath) Biddlecome (Nov 1857-16 Feb 1920). However, either I missed her or she was not there. I know she is buried at Roesville Cemetery in Vermilion County, IL. See:

Spelling varies on her first name. Last name may be misspelled as "Biddlercome". I believe her middle name is Catherine.

Do you have an index to the photos? Could tell me your photo ID number for Lorenna?

I did find her sister, Barbara Ann Redpath (1855-1931) and mother, Sarah Ann Elizabeth (nee Beadles) Redpath (1826-1920), at FAG but did not find them in your group of photos.

Many thanks for all your efforts and photos - Kent

The date of death on mother's headstone needs to be engraved. Who may we contact to inquire about having this done? Thank you.

One of the companies that I use often is Adams Memorial - to just engrave the final date I believe is about $120 or $125. (Their main office is in Charleston Illinois, but they have an office in Danville which is close to the Roseville Cemetery, and they will know where the cemetery is).

I use to have contact information to someone who use to work at one of the monument companies, and could do the engraving cheaper - but with Adams, I believe they are bonded and such, so if they do have an accident and mess up a stone, they will do what is needed to fix or replace.... plus I have no idea where I put that other person's information.

Subject: How do I find a grave?

I am looking for my great grandmother and great great grandmother's graves. Viola (Garner) Davis and Deborah Davis. I know where my grandparents are located (Ralph B Davis and Lucy Davis), but cannot seem to locate where the great grandparents are located within the cemetery. Is there a cemetery plot listing?
