I am trying to find out anything I can about the first Bass of my family to move to this area. His name was Gilford (Guilford) Bass, Sr. He passed away in 1854. Married to Married to Mary Ann Procter. Sons- Gilford, Elijah, and Henry. I am a member of the Bond County Geneological Society so I have put in quite a bit of time on checking this out. The family was mostly in the Wheatfield Township area. I have found tombstones in Bond County in Wisetown, Greene, Campground (where son Henry is buried) and Mt. Auburn in Greenville. My grandfather was Roy Edger Bass and his father was Charles W. Bass, who was married to Susie Stubblefield. My grandfather and great grandfather had a farm right on the Clinton County/Bond County line north of Stooetown from, as for as I can tell, the 1880's until 1970. Any help you can give me on this would be much appreciated. I thank you in advance. Gilford was also in the war of 1812. Thank again, Gail M. Bass.

I want to say a very special thank you to Penny Sanders. She has put a lot of work into this web site.
She is a very special lady who is also, my cousin. My mother was born and raised in Keyesport. My grandmother was a Sanders and my grandfather was an Elliott. This location holds a very special place in my heart.

Could you please send me an address or directions to Ebenezer Cemetery. I went to school with someone who is buried there. I would be coming from Hwy 50.

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.

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.'s%20Memorial/VeteransMemorial.html

On any cemetery that Gloria and I have “read”, we have tried to annotate all the military tombstones. 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.

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. Or, you might call one of their members as listed on

I had heard that the engraved sword that was presented to Gen. Elias Smith Dennis (Carlyle resident) 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

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).
