Hi Sara,

I am a descendant of Christian Gingerich. I was in McLean County yesterday and found two graves in Stouts Grove Cemetery on Old Peoria Road, about 2 miles west of Danvers, IL. The first that I saw was Johannes Guengerich and what I could barely make out was possibly 25th March 1811 - 9th(couldn't read month) 1853 and Catherine Yoder Jun 2 1819 - Dec 1, 1891.

The next one was "Elizabeth, Wife of Christian Gingerich"
d. 9-5-1865.

The only other Mennonite family name I recognized were from http://www.tcghs.org/AmishPart2.pdf about 12 Schertz family graves.

Hope that helps you.
