I am so glad to see your post! I have a couple of family members that may have been buried there and I am very much hoping I will finally find them!
1) Don Douglas Ames 1858-1941
2) Mary Elizabeth Miller Ames 1837-1887
3) Jacob Ralph Ames 1827 - ?
4) Thomas Steele 1811 -?
5) James Miller 1801 -? he is probably not there but just in case
6) Peter Miller 1841-1862
7) Abbie Jean Miller-Eldred 1845-1884
8 Enoch Miller 1836 -?
If you have time for any of these, I will be most grateful.

On page 66 of the old burial book is information of Lot. No. 66, deed was sold to Thomas Steele. This lot is located by the street by a field on the west side. There are three people buried in this lot: Peter Miller, a soldier, died July 20, 1862, age 23; Abigail Denney Miller Steele, died July 24, 1885, age 78 years; Thomas Steele, died March 13, 1901, age 90 years, a soldier. I don't know if you need this information or not but I found Abigail Denney was born 3 April, 1809 in Livingston or Dutchess Co., NY. She married James Miller 23 January, 1830, Dutchess Co., NY. James Miller was born 30 October, 1801, Dutchess Co., NY. Abigail Miller married 2nd husband, Thomas Steele on March 19, 1853, Boone Co., Illinois.

I read through all three volumes of the old burial records and found nothing for the surname of Eldred. As for Enoch Miller, there was a deed sold to an Enoch Milles, and this could be the same man. On page 76 are details of lot No. 76, with the deed being sold to Encoh Milles (Miller?)Buried on this lot are two infants: Eugene (cannot read the middle initial, could be an I or F?) Milles, died June 26, 1880, age 6 months. Note: this infant does show up in the 1880 census for the Enoch Miller household when this infant is 5 months old. Next child is "infant child of E. Milles", died July 16, 1880, age l month. (Unsure of the dates and correctness of the math with this entry?) There are other people buried in this lot who were sold individual deeds, with the last names of Mutterer, Lynde and Stork but am unsure if these people were related to Enock. According to others doing family research, Enoch and his second wife are believed to have moved up to Todd Co., MN.

Wow! wow! Debra,
I am thrilled with all the information you have provided! I am very happy to find Abigail and Thomas there and I FINALLY know Thomas's death date. Also very excited at the possibility there is a marker for Peter Miller!
The Ames family - this info is wonderful to recieve. A volunteer looked for the grave of Don Ames for me and she could not find it. She found many other Ames graves who were not related. Very happy to hear that his mother Mary Miller Ames is there! I am perplexed as to who Stella Strickland, David Case and Elaine Baldwin are - I will be researching. (fun, fun) I did not know about little Annie Ermina Ames, glad to add her to the family tree.
The Eugene Milles (Miller) is definitely Enoch's son. I just reviewed the 1880 census taken on Jun 11 and it states he was 5 months old. So this has to be him.
I can't thank you enough for all this information!! You have answered so many questions for me. I think you have worked with Tim Budd who is researching the Denney family. He sent me a booklet he wrote with many pictures - and it has opened a whole new world for me as I knew nothing of my husband's Denney side. Are you related to the Denneys?

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
