Hi Ken and Laurie Huffman,
My name is Steve Shaffer and I'm doing research on my Fry family which recently led me to Brown Co., Illinois.
I see from the info on line, that a good share of my relatives are buried at Mt. Sterling Cemetery and most appear on page 216. Here are the names:
Pearl (Mehl) Fry 216
Mary (Drew) Fry 216
Eugene E. Fry 216
Francis Fry 216
Abraham Fry 216
Catherine Fry 216
Elida H. Fry 216
Fred W. Fry 216
Henry A. Fry 216
Isadora Fry (Stout) 216
Amanda (Bates) Fry 216
Anna (Newby Fry 216
Anna B. Fry 216
And two Bates
John W. Bates 206
Louisa his wife 206 dau of Michael &
I know it's quite a list but most are on one page. I got the research you already did on Fry1, which shows census info on the Frys and Bates. I just would like the cemetery records.
And does someone do obits research?
THANK YOU for your help in advance.
Steve Shaffer of Michigan
