I am looking for burial info on this individual, my great-great-great-great-great paternal grandmother. (

First Name: Mary/Marie/Maria
Middle Name: Ellen/Elizabeth
Last Name: Purkapile/Purky/Purkey/Purkeypile, etc.
Maiden Name: Beyerin/Beyer/Boyer/Bowyer
Father: Felthy Bowyer
Husband: John D Purkapile (
Son: James S Purkapile (
Birth: August 25, 1776, Virginia, USA
Death: ca. 1869, Menard County, Illinois, USA

I think she is either in Farmers Point Cemetery with the rest of her family, and her grave and marker have just been lost, or Purkapile Cemetery, also in Menard County, IL. Fallen Graver (Find A Grave) Mr. James Toal ( checked the cemetery in 1981, but discovered that there were "no stones remaining in this cemetery." (

If anyone can find so much as a whisper as to her burial record(s), more specific death info, or grave location, I'd greatly appreciate it :)

Any info at all on her parents, Felthy or his wife, would also be greatly appreciated.
