Re: James L. Makemson KY to Vermilion County

In Reply to: James L. Makemson KY to Vermilion County by Alyce Beggs of 288

Hi Alyce,

My name is Tom Makemson, and I grew up in Danville, IL, which is the county seat of Vermilion County. I now live in Liberty, MO, but still have family in Danville,

I attended the first Makemson reunion a couple of years ago, and, while there, we visited a couple of cemeteries where Makemson's from long ago. I have to admit my notes are a bit scrambled, but I have a record of a James Makemson, who died 12/23/1858 as being in one of cemeteries visited. It seems possible that the death would be about the time one might expect for someone who came to IL as an adult in the 1820's.
