Just went through and named all photos with information I could read from the tombstones.  Kate and I did this photos this summer and it was so hot I thought we would die.  They should be better. Not all here and one is missing in the cemetery for Colonel William McMurtry.... We never did find his tombstone.  I have a photo of his I took on my other camera a few years ago when taking another fellow researcher to this cemetery who doesn't like to give me any credit for doing anything=will have to look them up. Thanks and happy days.....

Galesburg's Daily, Thursday, Jan. 28, 1897

Soperville: Mrs. Gregory: The sad ending of her life is on the lips of everyone.  Most of her life was spent in Soperville and many that were her school mates were filled with sorrow and indignation, and was Mr. Gregory in Soperville, the courts would not have a chance to try him.  Your correspondent has known the deceased since a girl and she was a splendid woman and one that loved her husband although he treated her so unkind, although she told me she could not give him up as he might reform.  She was an industrious hard-working woman and a kind mother. She leaves children, her mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Rafferty, five brothers, James of Soperville, William of Galesburg, John, Edward, and Robert live on a farm in Mercer county, three sisters, Mrs. Winfield Vanderverter of this place and Lillie, the youngest one at home.  All sympathy goes to the family.  The body was interred in the Blue cemetery on Thursday.

June 06, 1904

Mrs. Catherine Wallace, nee McKee, died at 9 o'clock last night at the house of her daughter, Mrs. Hattie Gray of 213 State street. A combination of asthma and dropsy was responsible for her taking off. She had been in declining health for upwards of a year, and at three different times underwent treatment at the two local hospitals.

The deceased had resided in Quincy off and on for twenty-four years or thereabouts. Several years ago she went to Parsons, Kan., where she visited at the home of a son and six months or so later she proceeded to San Francisco, Cal., where she has another son located. She remained in San Francisco about two years, thence returned to Parsons and subsequently to Quincy. For the past seven months ever since her return, she has been making her home with Mrs. Gray.

Mrs. Wallace was married three times and outlived all of her husbands. Her first helpmeet was James Howey. James was her son, William M was her first husband]; the second a Mr. Chamberlain and the third, a Mr. Wallace. She is survived by five children, three sons and two daughters, all of whom were born by the first marriage. The children are Mrs. Gray, at whose home she passed away; Mrs. Ella Garrick of Chicago; Edward Howey of Atika, Kansas; Quinby Howey of Parsons, Kansas and William Howey of San Francisco. She also leaves three sisters and two brothers: Mrs. Jane Tate and Dr. Lucinda Howey, both of Bedford, Iowa; Mrs. Sarah Vance of Little Rock, Ark.; Edward R. McKee of Memphis, Mo., and Ellick McKee, whose present whereabouts are unknown to Mrs. Gray.

E. R. McKee of Memphis, who is a circuit judge there, was summoned to this city by his sister's death, but was obliged to go to Edina today to adjourn court. He will be back this evening and take the remains to Hendersonville. The body will be laid away at Hendersonville Rice-Blue cemetery in a village near Galesburg, in a grave alongside the resting place of the first husband. The other two spouses are buried in this city.
 

Galesburg's Republican-Mail, Saturday, Nov. 5, 1927

Mrs. James Condra: The funeral services for Mrs. James Condra who died on Thursday evening will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday from the late home at 292 North Prairie St.  The Rev. N. T. Allen will officiate.  Burial will be made in the Rice cemetery northwest of Henderson.
