Hi Teasz5,
I'm Randy Moncelle, my mom and dad were Zenith and Wendelle Moncelle. Do you have any information about a photo of John and his brother? Mom and Dad had one but it was destroyed in a flood in their trailer while living in Normal some years ago. I'd sure like to get a copy. Thanks

Hi Randy! I have a lot of unmarked photos that I inherited from my Grandparents (Charles LeRoy and Jennie Harms Moncelle) but most are from the early 1900's so I doubt if any of them were of Great-Great-Grandpa John.

How sad that photo was destroyed as I haven't heard from anyone else having one. Do you remember what it looked like just in case I might have one?

Also, I know John passed away at the Peoria Poor Farm (actual date still unknown) but do you have any clues as to where GG-Grandma Celestine is buried? I show her passing in Feb 1870, but can't find where she is buried. They were living in Versailles, Olio Township, Woodford County, Illinois at that time.

Talk to you soon!
