David. please help me make the connection if you can.
I have a copy of the SMITH Cemetery, Pleasant Twp.,Sec. 14, Fulton Co., Illinois complete list of stones. I was there 3 years ago to see my grandfather's grave (Thomas Jesse RAUCH 1874-1914) and my ggrandfather and ggrandmother's graves (Lewis {Ludwig} RAUCH b. 9 Jun 1833 Marburg, Germany and Tilitha Eliza SMITH RAUCH 14 Feb 1841-1 May 1915).
I believe that all the graves there are related and have made the connection to over 100 of the 150 graves.
It is south west of Lewistown. I went to Lewistown to see the hotel that was owned and run by my grandfathers two half brothers and found that it burned about 5-7 years ago.
I came out of Ipava (where I still have relatives) 3 miles east on Rt 136, south on Branson School Rd. one mile and then .1 mile to right and graveyard on the right.
Connected names:RAUCH, SMITH, SHUSTER, WEESE, AZBELL, BEATY, BELLESS, BOHANNON, CATTRON, COOPER, BEADLES, OVERTON, JAMES.
No connection yet on:HENDEE, DILWORTH, ELLIOTT, FRRSYTHE, HAINES, HARPER, HARWICK, HOUK, HUTTON, JONES, KELLY, LINEBAUGH, ONION, ORR, PORTER, TUMBLESON, WALTERS, WILKENS, BASINGER, ATHEY, PARKINSON.
In the list of graves is:Josiah HENDEE b.4 Nov 1822 d. 15 May 1899 h/o Mary. I saw the grave there in the SMITH Cemetery built by my gggrandfather, Arthur SMITH.
Now the problem, connection of Josiah HENDEE to my line in the graveyard.
