Dear Peg,

So in its earlier days, the Griggsville Cemetery was known as the Griggsville Prairie Cemetery. This is marvelous! And, just to confirm its location, is this the cemetery that Donna Hadach-Price identified (in a posting on 16 Dec 2011) as being on Oak Street just north of Franklin? If so, my sisters and I visited this cemetery but were unable to locate any kind of marker. Your explanation as to why we didn't find one is very plausible.

You mentioned a county burial record. We've checked the cemetery records that were found in both the Pittsfield and Griggsville Libraries but Levi's name was not listed. Is there another county source we should check? A granddaughter, who recently died, was the source of this information and it had been provided by her mother.

Thank you for replying to my posting. I am very grateful!
