Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been active in genealogy for over 30 years and recently turned professional. My son and I also own The Graveyard Guardians,Inc., a cemetery preservation service in central Indiana. However we do and will travel throughout the Midwest. We also would like to work in the South in the winter. Too cold to work in Indiana in the winter.

William Barbee Orr
William Orr died 26 April 1876 in Tippecanoe county, Indiana. His wife, Priscilla Orr, died 18 Dec 1871; daughter, Evaretta, died 8 Oct 1868.
Priscilla and Evaretta are buried in Dayton Cemetery (found on Find A Grave) but I cannot find any thing for William Barbee Orr. Could he be buried with wife and daughter, and just not listed?
Thank you for any help you can offer.

William Cornell Paddock FAG#88853430
Hello fellow researcher!
William Cornell Paddock Find A Grave#88853430 is my third great uncle's father. Here's the path.
self-Marjorie Ann McLean-James Forrest McLEan-Jared Sylvester McLean-Thomas Ashton McLean Jr-Mary McLean's husband.....Lansing Wilcox Paddock and his father William Cornell Paddock.
I think you should try contacting the contributor who added the pictures. Duane St Mary? These graves are in Minnesota and I am in Washington state!
Are you related to the Paddock's?
Happy Hunting!

Ann Whitehead
You posted a photo on Find A Grave for Esther Whitehead McCarty. I am looking for a photo of her sister's tombstone and was wondering if you might have it in your collection. I have requested the photo from Find A Grave but no takers yet. Would you see if you have a photo for Ann Whitehead. I have her listed as born in 1820 but we are not sure and having a photo of the tombstone sure would be of help. If not would you have any other hints of who I could contact? Thanks.

RE: McClure/Swick Cemetery
Opps, I wrote before checking! I am just over involved with this cemetery as it is right across the road from where my grfather farmer....and I spent lots of time there when I was young...then the mine bought it all up and the home place is now gone.
I realize that just anybody can't go into the cemeteries and do restoration work, that's a good thing. But we have so many here in Knox Co, IN that probably need more than McClure/Swick. We have one that was vandalized a few years back and NOTHING has been done with it. I need to check you :-) out more and see how you decide which ones you work on. Thanks for the answer and have a Happy Easter!

RE: Calbert Cree
No I am not a relative. I beleive every person should be remembered and I saw his obit in the paper. Thought findagrave is a nice place to remember people and help others on the genealogy quest.

RE: Calvin and Penninahe Armfield
Thank you very much! I took photos of the cleaned up headstones this past July 2011 when we were in Greentown. I also have photos of them over the years beginning in 1986. I really appreciate the effort you went through to clean the stones. Thanks very much for that!

Best wishes for the New Year.

RE: Aaron Bennett
I think I thanked you but at the risk of thanking you twice (which is a very happy risk!) -- Thanks for finding this stone, cleaning it up and taking the photo. I looked all over the cemetery several years ago while visiting in Indiana and couldn't find it. You are doing awesome work which is appreciated, I am sure, by many people!

Aaron Bennett's tombstone
You are AWESOME!!! Thank you so much for doing all the work that you did in the Dayton Cemetery.

I live in Washington State. A few years ago I set up camp in the KOA in Crawfordsville and set out to find information on my Bennett and Mitten families. I was in the Frankfort Library trying to find information on the Mittens as well as my ggg grandfather (James Bennett) and his third wife and family. I found a listing from Dayton listing the burials and found their eldest son, Aaron. I drove out to the cemetery walked the whole cemetery and couldn't find Aaron's tombstone. Now I know why, it was buried! I was so happy to see it posted on Find a Grave.

Thanks again.
