I have a photo of the Shed Church taken by my grandmother in 1973. The back reads "Shedd Presbyterian Church. Crab Orchard Ill. Built by the Motsinger ancestors of Delphia B. Wood in 1836. Large Motsinger cemetary on grounds. Still in regular use with hand hewn pews, in 1973."

Delphia Wood's maiden name is Bones. She was the daughter of Lucian Bones and Emma Motsinger. I know that somewhere my mother has pictures of some of the tombstones there. I will be travelling to my mom's in July and plan on getting plenty of those pictures to scan.
