Below is an email which accompanies the first photos sent to be from Shari Hahn. I would like to thank you Shari & your husband for sharing of these photographs for others to enjoy and see what it's like in the Burr Oak Cemetery, Leroy Township, Boone, Co., IL.

Hi there :)

 
In looking for my husband's ancestors, I finally found them in LeRoy township, Boone Cty, IL!  Most are buried in McHenry Cty--not realizing that the two areas where they lived are so close together. :)  Since your website was so helpful in collecting names of the ancestors, the least I can do is reciprocate by sending you some tombstone photos for your website. :)  I have photos for Englehardt, Goodnecht, and Hahn.
 
I will send you the Goodnechts now, and follow up in subsequent emails with the others. :)  Unfortunately, many of the tombstones are either gone, or covered up by an overgrowth of trees or bushes. :(

If you have readable photos of grave markers in Illinois please consider
contributing them to our photo project.
I will accept one photo or an entire cemetery of photos.
I am accepting your tombstone photo's. To submit them please include the county name and the name of the cemetery in the subject line attach your .jpg photo to and email and press send. Thanks so much for your help.

Let's fill these pages with your wonderful tombstone photos from all over our Great State of Illinois!!! Don't forget let me know of abandoned & neglected cemeteries. If we don't do something about them now they will soon be gone & lost to us forever.

I'm busy making the other county pages to attach to this site for easier viewing and uploading. Thanks for your time. Foxie!!!
