Searching for information about Albert Stull (perhaps born in Kentucky) and his wife Caroline nee Canada and their descendents, especially his daughter Sara Gretta Stull who married Otis E. Boone & died in Nebraska around 1891 and is said to be buried in an Arcola cemetery.

Any information on the family or cemeteries in Arcola area would be appreciated. Thanks, Liz
