NOTES

Martha Jane Higgins: Married first Samuel C. Anderson (1-19). Married Second George Robert Higgins who died 11-25-1879, age 47 Years. George R. Higgins is buried in the Sears Graveyard.

Andersons: The headstone of Jonathan Alexander Anderson, Sr. is set in front of Samuel C. Anderson. Tombstone was installed by the wife of the Late Harold "Eck" Anderson, Jon Anderson's Mother. Jon is States Attorney of Crawford County on 3-6-1996. Jonathan A. Anderson, Sr. was married twice. First to a Miss Carson who was the mother of Samuel C. Anderson. Second wife was Synthia Garrard. There are 3 unmarked graves south of their tombstones and Jonathan, Sr. could be buried Here. Harold Anderson's father, Jonathan Alexander Anderson, Jr. is buried in the Robinson Old Cemetery. Samuel C. Anderson was in the Civil War in the 21st Ill. Infantry, Company I, in the same company with Allen Patton. Allen Patton's Letters are being published in the Early 1996 Robinson Daily News. Samuel C. Enlisted 6-13-1861, discharged 12-16-1865. He must of died early after his discharge as his wife married George Robert Higgins on 1-4-1866. (Higgins History book states she was a widow.) In the 1850 census an Alexander Anderson, Age 7, was living with Elizabeth Garrard, age 60 who was born in Virginia. Remember Martha Jane Anderson Higgins was the daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth Garrard. Alexander has to be John Alexander Anderson, Jr. as he was born 4-24-1844 in Edgar Co., Ill. Also Living with Elizabeth Garrard were Samuel C. Anderson and his wife, Elizabeth's daughter, Martha Jane Garrard Anderson, age 23, and a son, George W. Anderson age 2/3 of a year.

Merle Richards' survey of the Richart Cemetery states that the oldest grave in the cemetery is supposed to be that of Jacob Garrard. Location had been lost. Could some of the unmarked graves in Row #1 be that of Jacob and Elizabeth Garrard? It is most likely that he is buried south of 1-10, Martha Jane Higgins, as there is two unmarked graves and she was their daughter.

Isaac Watts Richart: Isaac was only 12 Years old when he enlisted in Company A, 62nd Ill. Infantry during the Civil War. Daniel W. Richart, brother to Isaac, was only 17 years old when he enlisted in Co. F 5th Regt. Illinois Calvary during the Civil War. The boys of Issac Richart were all very big for their size. A "John C. Richart" was also in the Civil War and is buried in the Hardinville Cemetery.
