Hi there folks. I know this isn't really a genealogy question per say but I was hoping somone might be able to help. About 20 years ago I attended school in Mt Carmel for about 3 months while staying with my grandma. I became friends with a girl named Kathy Litherland.

Can anyone tell me if Coffee Cemetery in Keensburg has a caretaker with an address that I can write to, or if there is a transcribed list of burials in this cemetery. The tombstone transcription Project has only a couple names listed for this cemetery and I know there are many more people buried there. I am looking for my aunt's burial place and I'm pretty sure it's in this cemetery. She was Myra or Myriah Wheeler born to Fred and Ada Wheeler, Keensburg, Illinois Wabash County, around 1908-1912, and died when quite young. Any help would be really appreciated. Thank You.

Their children married into the following families: DAUM, GERHARDT, REIMANN, BREDENKAMP, BOSECKER, LANDORNLAGER, HENZE. One son, William, I have not located marriage for. Wm. was born in 1873 and died before 1948. Anyone working on this line? Would love to hear from you. Jackie

Surnames: MUNDY HALLOCK NEWKIRK
Submitter: Niona Case ([email protected])
Date: 28 Feb 2001

I found a post on your board from an Alice Walter, ([email protected])who was inquiring about Hallock Hallick surname,from 1860 and 1850 Wabash County census in Mt. Carmel Township. I came to your website seeking the same information, only I did not even have the Hallock names she requested information about. All I had was that my grandmother, Gertrude Asenith Newkirk's mother's maiden name was Hallock, and she was called Mattie. Since this query I ran across on your site indicates that Martha, child number 6 in the list from the census was eight years old in 1860; and my grandmother, Mattie's daughter, was born in 1800, that means Martha would be about 28 when my grandmother was born; if she is the same Hallock. So, see, even if you returned a blank on my search for a Newkirk inquiry, you served me admirably anyway. At least I think I'm in the right county, township and state! According to my grandmother, Gertrude Asenith (see even the name matches), her father's name was Rufus Newkirk, her mother's name was Mattie Hallock. Mr. Rufus Newkirk supposedly owned a grocery/merchantile store, either in or near Friendsville, IL. My dad thought her grandfather or great-grandfather's name was Christopher Newkirk.It was his understanding that her branch of Newkirks originally came from Kentucky, and were Confederate "sympathizers" while my grandad Mundy's family were loyalist "damyankees" from Pennsylvania. I note that the Hallock's originally came to Illinois from New Jersey and PA. You've refueled my enthusiasm to keep on with my research. So you will probably be hearing from me again. My maiden name was Mundy. My dad was William Ray Mundy, the oldest son of Verner Clarence(or as we knew him Clarence Vernor, Vern or C.V.)Mundy and Gertrude Asenith Newkirk. They both grew up in Mt. Carmel, attended schools there, and were married there 14 Jan 1903. My grandad, Vern Mundy was the second of six children born to William Hardin Mundy and Carodile "Carrie" Best in Mt. Carmel. She and her husband are buried side by side in the Gard's Point Cemetery. William Hardin Mundy died in 1887, in 1899 Carodile married Edwin S. Haupt, and they moved into Mt. Carmel, at 1217 N. Mulberry Street. Edwin S. Haupt died in 1921,and is buried at Highland Memorial Cemetery. Carodile died in 1921, and was buried next to the father of all her children at Gard's Point Cemetery. When Gertrude Newkirk and Vernor Clarence Mundy were married at Mt. Carmel, Illinois, they departed immediately after to return to Colorado where my grandfather was working for a farmer near Eastonville. They later bought land near the Elbert County line to the west, and reared their family there until Gertrude's death in 1954. Thank's for letting me share my joy with you for your "inadvertent" help. Now you have something to add to the Newkirk-Mundy history. My great aunts, great uncles and 2nd and 3rd generation cousins live in and around Mt. Carmel.I don't know if the Mundy Insurance and Real Estate Agency, Inc. is still in business. It was located at 400 Chestnut St., Mt. Carmel, and was at that time one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Wabash County. I believe you have a book in your library of the Mundy family history ... one of my references states it was from the Mundy Manuscript owned by Hurley Gould. There is another book "out there" by an Ezra Green Mundy which might be on file in your County Library. They kept better records than the later generations of Newkirk's apparently.
