Welcome to VIRTUAL CEMETERIES ONLINE, starting with Knox County, IL. The idea to
delineate as many of the headstones I am taking a picture of and to get as much
information about these individuals to you as possible.
These individuals will be of many races. It makes no difference to me if
they are black or white or polka dot. I will note the race and go on from there.
This to help others with the hard to find relatives.
There will be those
with no information except birth and death dates but make no mistake, I am not
through with them. I am continually digging through census for even the ones
that I cannot currently find.
All of the current entries with photos are
from East Linwood Cemetery in Galesburg, Knox County, IL, with the exception of
Eugene Allen Briggs, Marian Briggs and Rodney Thompson that is. Those three are
in Memorial Park Cemetery, Knox Co., IL.
My first entry was Leon L. Moser
who was born in Germany, emmigrated to the United States in 1883 and settled in
Knox County, IL. He was prosperous enough to actually have a maid and hired man
to help him.
FEEL FREE TO USE THE PHOTOS AT THIS SITE IF YOU NEED THEM. I WOULD ALSO BE
GLAD THOUGH IF YOU EMAIL ME WHEN YOU DO AS I LIKE TO KNOW WHO IS POSSIBLY
RELATED TO THESE PEOPLE. BUT, YES, THE PHOTOS ARE FREE TO USE.
I WOULD LIKE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON ANY OF THE INDIVIDUALS
CONTAINED WITHIN THIS SITE TO EITHER ADD IT TO THE GUEST BOOK OR TO EMAIL IT TO
ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes all it takes is an additional name to add hundreds of people.
I am going to link other sites to expand this idea. If anyone wants to do this
with their cities etc, I would be glad to help with research so they can. I have
East Linwood, Memorial Park, Linwood, Hope Cemetery and about 5 others around
here with lots of genealogical information for those who are searching. You
never know. Your relatives may be buried in this region.
For your convenience I am also starting sites with each cemetery listed. Click here for East
Linwood. Unlike this site you are at these other sites will only list the
people who are buried in them. No relatives. If you need further family you will
have to come to this site. Which will feature those I can find some information
on within Knox County. Most, if not all of the sites, will feature photos you
can make use of. Memorial Park
Cemetery will be listed within this site. Coming next after these will be
Linwood, Hope Cemetery and other cemeteries within the Knox County area.
Please email me corrections or add it to the GuestBook. I try to get everything
as accurate as possible but I'm not perfect. But I do wish to provide accurate
information so don't hesitate to let me know when I have erred.
