    3. I think family members are permitted to work on stones or grave spaces which belong to their ancestors, assuming the family members all agree what to do. I've been restoring a cemetery since 2004, and have made cement bases for tablet stones, with slots in which to mortar the stone to the base using a "soft" (with little or no portland cement, just lime and sand mix) mortar which could be chiseled out rather than setting the stone in cement. However, rather than take my word for it (as I live in Hancock county, not Stephenson), you might check with the Burial Division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency if you are in doubt.

    3. Try the Cedarville village hall, at the Jane Addams community center. A lot of times in these small villages the village board maintains the cemetery. They all have different rules.
