  1. Hello. This is Deb Lawson from Princeton IL. I joined at the IL State Fair last summer. While there, I spoke to several people. One was a woman who was an expert in cemeteries. I know I had her name and address but can’t seem to locate that information. I do remember that she had Boothill in her email address.
    My daughter’s friend has some land with an old cemetery. She was seeking advice in how to preserve it. I would be very grateful If you could connect me to someone who could help . Thanks so much.
