I find old cemeteries interesting as well. I recently blogged about an old family graveyard near where I live, you might find it interesting: http://potomacmysteries.blogspot.com/.

Great work! These would make interesting additions to online memorials about these people. There are so many interesting monuments that give us clues to the life and family relations of the deceased.

Thanks for the Illinois Lyons postings. I descend from James Knox Lyons in this branch. I'm curious about the Renwick side. I have a Joseph Renwick Lyons, child of Archibald and Martha Boyd Hemphill Lyons and younger brother of James Knox Lyons. Any connection?
