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.

Thanks for adding the obit for Esther Jane Elder. Since you added the newspaper clipping, I did not add the transcription.

Caroline Hollis is my great aunt. I have submitted dates, a picture, and a death notice for her. Please put them on her memorial. Thanks.

This is the death certificate for their son Albert and he lists his mother as Ursula Miller.

The Adam that died in 1872 is the right one. They are both buried at St. Johns Lutheran in Fort Wayne.

Sorry for all the trouble.

Okay I retraced everyone. Louisa never used the name Eliza or Elizabeth. She used Louise, Louisa, and Ursula. She resided at 608 Poplar, Ft Wayne and later my great-grandfather Rudolph Beverforden also resided at the same address. The Adam Bender she married was a Well Digger from the 1870 census and the Adam that died in 1872 was cleaning out a well.

The fact that Louisa Ursula Bender's maiden name of Braun was told to me by my dad and several of his sisters. But for sure her name was not Elizabeth or Eliza.

Charles and Ida Brush
Dear Sheryl,

I have a beautiful photograph of Ida and Charles Brush from August 1909 in Chicago that I can upload to their memorials, but didn't want to surprise you with it if they are members of your family. They both served on the Architect's Committee for the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette and I have a photo of the whole committee.
