Ebenezer cemetery listings?

Hi, I'm wondering if a transcription exists for Ebenezer Cemetery near Lick Creek (according to my source, it's near the old Ebenezer Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in the northeast corner, Sec. 33, T 11S, R 1E, Union County)? If so, if someone could let me know how I might locate and review a copy (e.g., FHL film, book), that would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance,
Lesley

My web site has photos, but is only a partial inventory:

There is a complete listing published in 2004 by Darrel Dexter in Union County, Illinois Cemeteries Volume IV.

Are there any particular names you are interested in?

Ahh... that explains... I think the DAR only has volumes I-III of those transcriptions. :-(

Thanks so much. The names I'm looking for are Roberds/Roberts and Gallegly, although the link you sent has other relatives listed - I really appreciate it!

I have Volume IV. Which names are you looking for? This is a fairly large cemetery and it looks like about 30 pages in the book. There are many listings of both surnames.

Glad to help.

My relatives buried at Ebeneezer Hall are the Menees/Meneese/Manees and Wiggs, although most of the headstones cited on my web site are related to these or my other Union Co. families. I'd be interested to know which names we may have in common.

Are the listings in order of how they're placed in the cemetery? I'm particularly curious to know which Galleglys are closest to William Thomas Roberds (d. 1863) and his mother Rhoda (Gallegly) Roberds (d. 1849), as I don't have much information on my Gallegly line and the placement might help give me some clues to family relationships.

Thanks,
Lesley

I'm also descended from Lazarus Wiggs & Sarah Brewer, via Martha Wiggs (sister of your Mary Jane) who married Francis Marion Menees.

I'd like to further compare notes and will contact you off-line if that is OK with you.

No, they are alphabetical. Sometimes a headstone might say husband/wife of or son/daughter of.
