I am looking for information about my Great Grandfather Albert GIVENS he was married to Sarah CUMMINS. Infomation I have is that my Grandfather Reubern Rola GIVENS was born in Pope County Illinois on a farm in 1877. My grandfather had 3 step brothers with the last name of ROSE. The first of these step brothers was born in 1879. A short newspaper article about my grandfather says he lived with his parents on the farm until he was 26. I assume Albert died between 1877 and 1879 when the first ROSE baby was born.

My GGG-granfather died in Pope Co. in 1877. He lived in Eddyville and I received a copy of his will from Pope Co. Have enquired of several People as to a cemetery listing and received no response. Some one must know if the Eddyville Cemetery has been 'read' and recorded. His name is Amaziah JONES, born in 1797 in NC. He raised 4 of his grandchildren after they became orphans. Some remained in the Pope Co. area. His widowed daughter, Martha BOWER, lived with him. Perhaps she is buried locally also. I live near Springfield, Ill. and could visit the grave sites if I knew where they were buried. J. E. Southwick
