Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Bernard Poirson
Memorial 132003467

Hi Sheryl,

I wondered if you could consider changing Bernard Poirson's death date? His will was not dated 1855 it was dated 1849 but probated 1855 so he was already dead by 15 Sep 1855. I don't have a better date but 1855 seems more accurate based on probate records.

Thanks, Donna

Silvanus Mellott - Harvey C Jensen
Hi, Sheryl--

There is no Sylvanus Jenson (67615230) in Island Cemetery. There is a Silvanus Mellott, but there is already an entry for him (31833081).

Perhaps you meant to add an entry for Harvey C Jensen (no dates, just "1 year old"). There is no entry for him on Findagrave, so maybe 67615230 could be changed. I've added a photo.

I'm happy to report that that Deppen marker (memorial #130521243) has been removed by the cemetery. No one is buried in that spot. Thank you- Shirely Pace

Thomas Hubler
You don't happen to have Thomas Hubler's obit from Oakwood Cemetery in Warsaw do you? If you had it, it would save me some research. Thanks,

RE: Thomas Lynch
Hi Sheryl,
working on my Lynch family today and realized Thomas who died in 1856 was the son of Thomas and Catherine, not Mary & Matthias. Mary was actually his sister. All those name repeats are so confusing. Mary and Matthias did have a son named Thomas, but he couldn't be that old. I was looking for naturalization records downtown today and found Thomas' - originally thought it was his fathers, but had his age as 21 - he applied in May and died in July. I am sure he is not really buried there, since there was no cemetery there, unless they reinterred him at the same time as his father. I submitted edits for his parents. didn't want to just do that without an explanation. Did you tell me before if this is your family too?
