Death Record of Ann Biggs Dare from the Clerk's Office in Kankaee County Illinois:
No. 1882-63 Date of report: June 7
Name: Mrs. Ann Biggs Dare Age: 82 years 10 Months 28 Days
Date of death: Jan 14, 1882 11P.M. Marital status: Widowed
Nationality: English Where Born: Rinton Eng
How many years a resident of this state: 24 *
Place of death: Leimestone**, K.K.K. Co. Cause of death: Old age
Complication: Fatty degeneration of the heart
Place of burial: Leimestone Hawkins Cem. Name of undertaker: Wm Frith
Name and Residence of Physician Returning Certificate: B. F. Uran, Kankakee

*1858 would have been the year Ann and Samuel moved to Illinois.
**Leimstone is how it is spelled on the death register; however, no such location could be found on any map. There is a Limestone Park near Kankakee. Also, there was no success in finding Hawkins Cemetery or a Leimestone/Limestone Hawkins Cemetery. There is a Limestone Cemetery in Bourbannais which is just outside of Kankakee. It is likely that this is the cemetery.

Ann's death record says she was born in Rinton; however, no such location could be found in England by this researcher. However, in Taunton where her husband was known to be from was the Parish of Rimpton which is believed to be the correct location. Rimpton is a small parish in South Somerset, 'six miles Northeast from Yeovil and about two Northwest from Sherborne in Dorsetshire'. Its name implies it is on the rim or edge of two territories, now where Somerset meets Dorset, and no doubt in the distant past where the lands of two different tribes met.
