I was wondering if there were any civil war monuments in Clinton County. I am particularly interested in the 30th IL and if you are aware of any items/holdings I’d be very much interested.
Thank-you,

Matt: I don’t remember any special Civil War monuments in the county. There is a monument for the later wars in front of the court house in Carlyle. https://www.clintonco.illinois.gov/Veteran's%20Memorial/VeteransMemorial.html



On any cemetery that Gloria and I have “read”, we have tried to annotate all the military tombstones. http://clinton.ilgenweb.net/cemetery/ There are also military monuments now in Breese and in Germantown (burials, not enlistments, I think), but I’m not sure if they include Civil War guys either. A photo of the Breese one is probably online.



We have an older recap of all the veterans we knew of at that time that are buried in the county, using the 1956 Veterans list as a starting point. http://clinton.ilgenweb.net/military/1956honor/



We are members, but not connected to, the Clinton County Historical Society. You can write to them and ask them if they have any holdings. https://www.clintonco.illinois.gov/Museum.html Or, you might call one of their members as listed on http://www.playandstaycarlyle.com/organizations.htm



I had heard that the engraved sword that was presented to Gen. Elias Smith Dennis (Carlyle resident) http://clinton.ilgenweb.net/military/1861civilwar/inf008.htm by his troops is in the Springfield Historical Museum. The workers there agreed it’s listed in their inventory but could not find it for us the one day we were there a few years ago (might be in the vault?). There might even be a second item there.



You could also subscribe to our County mailing list http://clinton.ilgenweb.net/misc/clintlist.html

and ask the same questions, perhaps someone else will have an idea or two. Then after awhile, unsubscribe.

I have an antique music album with pictures of Henry Zurliene and Mary Zurliene in it, plus others not labeled. There is a picture of a memorial for Henry Zurliene w/date of death 03-03-04. Are there any decendants that would be interested in these pictures?

Hi, Thanks for doing what you do. The internet is wonderful for gene research.

I'm looking for the the Gullick Graveyard that's supposed to be around Aviston. It's apparently not the one up on Leroy Rd. toward Highland. I can't find anything specific on the 'net and there are too many small graveyards to scan the aerial photos for likely suspects.

I'm a descendant of Ira Gullick = Nancy B. Gingles. I'm coming to Cahokia Indian Mounds next week and thought I'd swing out to Clinton/Madison to hunt up some gravestones.

Thanks for any help!

Loretta Cope Strake wrote the book that you have listed under "Lookup Volunteers" entitled, "Trenton's Past in Our Presence", and I helped her edit and transfer it to Word for publication. This project was underwritten and distributed by the Trenton Woman's Club. Since then we have published a book for the Trenton Sesquicentennial that is filled with historic photos submitted by Trenton residents and scanned for publication. I think this would be a rich resource for your site (which I didn't know existed until I received a request this week from someone in Lakeland FL who was seeking information on the Cope family. She had discovered the title by Loretta on your site and found the contact information which came to me).

My great, great, great grandfather, Dr. Jacob Murdick practiced medicine in Clinton and Bond counties from roughly 1850 to 1885. He married in 1854 Lucinda Morton. I can not find any accurate records of his birth which was possibly in Monroe county, IL or his death which I have very little clues for.

This website is a fantastic resource for researching family history in Clinton County. Thank you very much for all your work in maintaining and updating it.

I just wanted to share an excellent website that has the scanned records of the Catholic Church in the entire Belleville Diocese for southern IL from 1729-1956. It is not indexed, but is sorted by county, then town, and then by church for searching. Running searches and printing and/or saving the scanned images you find are completely free as well! I have found this to be very helpful in finding sources to back up my family tree.

Enjoy!
