just click on the link above and it will take there. thanks & happy cemetery trailing to everyone. I hope to get up there to visit the cemetery.

In response to your query, I'll try to summarize family history.

Thomas Grimes came to the Momence Illinois area in the very early 1800's, along with his brother Edgar, both from Ohio.  Ohio records apparently destroyed so I have not been able to trace further back.  Thomas married Sarah (Sally) Smith, and raised her 8 siblings.  I stand along their headstone in 6 Mile Grove Cemetery, now under threat of being converted to "other use".  (Can this be stopped?)---- Yes it can be stopped....

His son, Charles Wesley Grimes, married Ella Evelyn Hayhurst, but she died of TB at a young age leaving children Vergie Grimes and Thomas Leon Grimes to be raised by friends and family.

Thomas Leon Grimes married Pearl Rose Sharkey (Chartier) had my father, Wesley John Grimes, Helen Mae Grimes, and Charles Grimes.

My father, Wesley John Grimes married Anne Lois Sichman and had my sister Carol and me, Wesley John Grimes Jr.

All of this occured near Momence Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago.

After WWII, many of us have migrated across the US.  I have relatives from Florida to Oregon to Calif to Indiana, and The Carolinas I think.

I JOINED SAVING GRAVES AS A HOPE OF SAVING THE 6 MILE GROVE CEMETERY NEAR MOMENCE ILLINOIS.

I hope to be of some small help.............
