Email from Tom:
Sorry I did not realize that you had put your mother in the Subject. I see that she is buried in Marion County. That is North of Saint Louis and across the river from Quincy Adams County, Ill. I am on the other side of the state. I am 40 miles South of Kansas City.  

I noticed that you are in Knox County, Ill. I have a line that I would be glad to share. John Boven Vivian married Maria Atkinson daughter of  Stephen and Sarah Hall Atkinson.. he would be a brother to my Great Great Grandfather. I have information on the Atkinsons and the Vivions. The Atkinsons were from Lincoln County Ky. John married in Layette County, Mo.  

Thanks for taking the time to let me know that you found someone. Do you know Martha maiden name or anything else I will be happy to add that too. Some people think you should put just what the stone says. but I like to add where what and when.

Thanks again Tom
