When I read your posting, I thought the name George Claycomb sounded familiar.In fact, I had photographed the marker of a George Claycomb at Monmouth Cemetery, due to its location and similarity to markers of the REID family.At the time, I was trying to track down the REID husband of one of my wife's more distant cousins, but never had any success in that endeavor.That cousin was buried near these REIDs - across the lane, no more than 20 feet away.
Now, as to those you did mention.They are in the south-most part of the cemetery, in a narrow section lining the roadway around the main body of the original cemetery.I believe that it was in "Old Part A-1", but would have to check the cemetery map again.Sexton records are probably available at the local library, as well as the funeral home records.You may already know that the deaths between 1916 and 1950 are indexed on the Illinois State Archives website, and copies of the death certificates listed therein for the years 1916 through 1947 are available in Springfield.They had been free until about a year ago, when the state became overwhelmed with millions of requests.Copies in Springfield are supposed to cost 50 cents each now, non-certified.Of course all of the death certificates (1878 and later) are available from the courthouse in Monmouth.The last one I got (over 20 years old, non-certified) was still 50 cents a few months back, but that may have changed by now.
The first family group of Claycomb's consisted of two rows of individual markers, and a large "CLAYCOMB" marker in between the rows at the south end.I've listed the rows reading north to south, with row 1 being west of row 2.Although the names in row 2 were dissimilar, the markers were identical in construction to row 1, and actually nearer the CLAYCOMB marker -
Row 1 George A. Claycomb 1851-1916 A. L. Bovee Claycomb 1850-1930 George M. Claycomb 1877-1951 Everett Hutton 1874-1951 May Hutton 1878-1960
Row 2 Nina Boals Rohr Aug 17, 1891 - Nov 12, 1972 Myrtie Boals 1871-1942 Loffie M. Boals 1870-1940 William H. Merrifield 1866-1925
The Wiedenbauer group was immediately east of the Claycomb group in the same section.Again there were two rows, but this time there was a space between the second and third markers.In row 2, this space was occupied by a large WIEDENBAUER marker.Same as before, the readings are north to south, west row then east row -
Row 1 Frank X. Wiendenbauer 1870-1937 Nettie Wiedenbauer 1873-1960 Louise Marie Wiednebauer Jan 13, 1892
Row 2 Robert D. Hall 1894-1953 Nellie B. Hall 1893-1957 James Robert Hall Nov 19, 1917
Now, I'll also include the information on the other Claycomb group in Monmouth Cemetery, as they may be related.There were 4 Claycombs buried in a row, followed very closely by a Civil War marker for a REID.The row immediately west included a single marker for 4 REID family members, and was similar in construction to the Claycomb markers.Beyond this group was a bit of space to the next set of markers.It might be that all of these were somehow related, or perhaps just chance.I would note that the Claycomb markers faced east, while the Reid markers faced west.These were in "Old Part D", the northwest quadrant of the original cemetery.Here they are, again north to south -
George W. Claycomb 1828-1908 Sarah A. Claycomb 1834-1926 Albert Claycomb 1853-1860 Alta M. Claycomb 1863-1931
If your interested in the REID information, I could pass that along.I also have photos of all of the above markers.If you're interested in those, I could probably post them temporarily to a website for you to download - that might be easier than trying to email them.
