population 129. Its near Alton, near St. Louis....

Im going to Il this summer with my mom. Her family is having a small reunion in Peoria. Her family are McLaughlin's from Henry and Sparland (more small towns). While we are out there from CA, we will also visit Hamburg. There is a small cemetary out there, Indian Creek Church of Christ/cemetery that I would like to visit and see relatives headstones that may be there.

Does anyone know of this small town or any of its "Rosa" residents in Hamburg or Alton?

Was one of your relatives named Cecil Rosa?

My grandfather, "Penny" Phillips, was a neighbor and close friend of Cecil Rosa (nickname "Fat Rosie") back in late 1930's in rural Hamburg, IL.

I'm glad you mentioned Phillips as I have mystery. Among my late mother's possessions I found many family keepsakes including a picture of Uncle Howard Pilllips that looks to be taken in the late 1930s or maybe a little later.

I have no idea where he lived or how he was related to they family. She did have Michel/Michael kin in the St. Louiis area - and I've often wondered if the two families were related.

I was born in Hamburg Illinois in 1950, I lived there until 1968, Lived nearby in Alton Illinois and Now have a house in Nebo, Illinois which is just north of Hamburg about 20 miles. I still have family that live in Hamburg, although I now live mostly in Las Vegas, NV. and go back home twice a year. It is a beautiful site to see on the Mississippi River. Population there is much less than when it was a stopping place for ships to unload and load. I have many fond memories of this little town. There is another cemetery on top of the Hill looking over the town of Hamburg. An old Riverboat Captain is buried standing up looking over the Mississippi to watch the boats go by.
