(Civil War records also spell his name “Schell.”)
In Memory of Charles Clark
Died, 7/21/1861 (?); age 3 (worn off)
(Old photos show two similar pillar-style tombstones in this location, but now there is only a base, and next to it a single pillar stone, weathered to illegibility except for the first name, “Charles.” In old photos, one of the pillars has a Civil War commemorative star ornament beside it. In old records of the White Cemetery Association, there is a list of military graves that includes, “Charles Clark, old soldier,” with no dates or further info.
If the transcription means by “age 3 (worn off)” that the age was two digits, thirty-something, then this is the grave of Charles Clark, old soldier and he died very early in the Civil War. If, on the other hand, this is Charles Clark, age 3, then Charles the old soldier, lost a toddler namesake at the outset of the war.
Note that Lines missed transcribing at least two more stones in this area of the cemetery, which once held a large tree. In 1942 it may have been overgrown and some of the stones may have fallen over, so that he simply didn’t find all the graves in the overgrowth).
Nelson, Manning H., Co. E. 3rd Ill. Inf. (date worn)
Married Harriet Whedon—when he died she married Justin Fellows. Her daughter was Carrie D. Nelson who married Oscar Sinnett. Ebenezer Nelson’s daughter Nellie, married name Gothard.
Louisa G., Wf. of M. Herriman. Died, 1/24/1863; 38 yr., 5 mo., 13 d.
(Old photos show another tombstone beside hers which Lines’ missed in his transcription, and which is now gone. It may have been her husband, Merritt Herriman or (considering it is now laid flat at the base of Manning Nelson’s GAR stone) it may have been a non-military marker for Manning Nelson. That it is possibly Manning Nelson’s family marker is backed up by Lines noting “date worn” at Manning Nelson, considering GAR stones have no dates (and Louisa Herriman was his sister.))

Schryver of Cuba, Lake County, married Myra Huntington of Cuba, Lake County at the parsonage in Barrington on 6-16-1873. Witnesses: brothers and sisters.)

(Willie, son of T&M Sharp. The stone has been displaced and is so weathered it is illegible except under ideal light, but descendents of Willie’s surviving brother verify the family Bible records the birth and death of Thomas William Sharp 10/20/1871 – 7/17/1872 (since Thomas was his father’s name, he was probably called Willie.) Note his birth was eight days before his mother’s death.)

Bell, Phebe, dau. of Wm. & R.S. Cornwell
Died, 6/26/1865; aged 4 yr., 9 mo., 16 d.
(Probably Phebe Bell Cornwell. This is because the lot was paid for by Miss Emeline Cornwell, and a William Cornwell enlisted in the Civil War from Barrington. The rest of the lot was later sold by Emeline Bute (nee Cornwell) to Calista Hollister and it is now filled with Hollister graves. Old photos show Phebe’s grave among them, but at some point in the late 60s/early 70s her tombstone vanished. After vandals knocked over the Hollister stones, the headstone of Irving Hollister was mistakenly put on the empty base for Phebe’s missing headstone. Irving Hollister’s headstone should be at the far south end of the lot, but the base (as of 2012) is obscured by a large plant. Phebe’s gravestone is missing, and her gravesite is mistakenly marked by the headstone of Irving Hollister.)

Died, Jan. 3, 1882; aged 15 yr. +
(Anna Dominowski died in a house fire, her son a few days later. This grave and the one below were in the original Potter’s Field, the last lot of the NE corner of the old section of the cemetery. This area of the cemetery was re-designated in the 1950s when it was decided it was not fitting to have a veteran (Samuel Gould, below) in Potter’s Field.)
Gould, Saml., G.A.R. Co.G. 52 Ill. Inf.
(Buried in Potter’s Field. Civil War records show a charity headstone was provided for Samuel Gould who died Feb. 23 or 25, 1863 and was buried in “Whites, Barrington, Cook Co, IL.” (The cemetery is actually in Lake County.) He enlisted 9-25-1861 and was sent to Co. G, 52nd IL Infantry 11-19-1861, no muster-out date was found. See the photo of Minnie Westfall Sommerfield’s stone. In the distance, marked with a Civil War commemorative star, is the GAR headstone of Samuel Gould.)
