|Bio and Links|
My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries. |
I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.
Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.
Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for updating Henry's memorial in Waterloo cemetery. Do you know if by chance his wife is buried nearby? Her name was Helena Shaffer Zerkle. (b. 1818 d. perhaps 1899, no proof on dod though) I did a little searching for her, but can't find her death cert, and some people claim she died in MO - even if she died there, it still would make more sense if she was buried with her husband. Anyway, they're a collateral line I was digging in to find info on someone else and wondered if she was there too. Thanks for your help!

Person who took photo of Lucetta`s marker shows this person buried next to her. Steve

Oops! I forgot one more name: Caroline Hollis, my great-aunt and daughter of Andrew & Catherine Hipp. I have a picture and biographical data I could post but can't right now. Any chance you'd be willing to transfer this one to me, too? (I've only just begun creating Find-A-Grave sites.) Thanks much. Carole
|Carole Evans||Hipp name in Fort Wayne, IN Cemetery|
Hello! Andrew and Catherine Hipp are my great grandparents, and they're buried in the Catholic Cemetery in Fort Wayne, IN. I notice you have created a site for them (thank you very much), but I would like to post some biographical information and a picture and can't do that right now. Would it be possible for you to transfer ownership to me? I would really appreciate it. Carole
Thanks so much! Marion

My GG Grandmother Margaret E. Shaffer married a Saylor/Sayler, but I haven't been able to find out his name. My G-Grandmother Jesse "Nettie" Saylor married my G-Grandfather Robinson. So I have been trolling all the Saylor/Sayler/Saylors Find A Graves trying to find a link. When I see an error, or can add something that would help the memorial, I try to send a correction.

You are so welcome! Glad I could help (and I hope I didn't introduce any typos into it :-))
|Deb Lynch||RE: Thomas Lynch|
looks like I put up the wrong side of the 4 sided monument. I added the parents side. thanks.
|Wendy & John Corcoran||Thanks for responding Sheryl,|
I understand what you are saying about adding the parents, but then I don't like to be clunked over the head by Find A Grave editors for adding an unknown cemetery!
I will add it to the back of my list to do. All of this was researched by records so it can not be lost.
PS You are an extraordinary researcher and a credit to Find A Grave for your research skills and dedication. Thank you. You have helped me so much with the DeWald line, as well. But, all of your obituary columns were in "png" form and I could not use one of them, sadly, for our family records!
