I am Elizabeth Redmon”red_celia

At Elizabeth Chapel Cemetery

Elizabeth speaks:

My name is Elizabeth Berry Redmon.  I was born in Kentucky, in Clark County in 1822.

I married Squire Redmon in 1839.  He was also born in Kentucky, in Clark County, in 1816.  Together, we had six children, all born in Kentucky.

John was the oldest.  Then came Mary, Wallace, Frances, and Nancy.  She was just 11years old when she died.  We buried her back there in Kentucky. It made me so sad to leave her behind when we all moved west here to Missouri… and the last of my children was George.

The war came along.  It was a terrible time.  But after, we started a new life and the dawning of the 1870’s found us settled here in Missouri. Our oldest boy, John and his wife, Mattie, and her sister, Georgia, moved with us. George came, too. He was still just a boy.  The rest were all married and moved out

We came first to Spruce township, just a ways east of here but soon moved to Summit Township.

By the 1880 our family group had grown to include our grandchildren.  Mollie’s husband was dead, but she stayed with us along with her children.  And John and Annie and their girls were here also.   The kids went to school at the Redmon School house.  We had a fine group of friends and neighbors.  We’d join together at the school house every Sunday for worship and fellowship.  Our community was prosperous.  It was a good time.

But my time with the family would not last much longer.  In the spring of 1882 typhoid fever swept across the county.  For two long weeks, filled with agony, I fought, but I just couldn’t win. I passed on into the sweetest light, and my little Nancy was there to meet me.  My family buried me in the Redmon family cemetery just east of here.  I rest there now along with my dear husband, Squire.
 

This speech was given October 16, 2004 during the 120th Anniversary Rededication Service at Elizabeth Chapel Cemetery, just mile west of Redmon Cemetery and named for Elizabeth Redmon.
