HI Sheila,
This is a bit out of our juristiction. However, I recommend to do a site search (see search box on HOME page)as there were at least two other message threads regarding KEMMIS - and the cemetery.
One is under the topic LORRAIN CHURCH CEMETERY -

Another msg thread: MORE ON RICKEL


You should get about 9 entries if you do a search for KEMMIS.

"Katminder" may be able to help you or direct you also.

Also, see our Links (Table of Contents) to IL Ancestors/Bureau County & Bureau County Genealogical Society

I'll post again if I find something else.
You did not give any dob's or dod's, etc. Are any of the below your family line?:

Hi, Sheila, my friend John Kemmis lives in the Geneseo Area, his cousin, Sid Kemmis lives about a quarter of a mile from said cemetery. John's webpage is:
He has some genealogy on it that may be useful to you

Good luck!
