RE: John Tanner
John F Tanner is found in the 1850 Census in Brownstown, Jackson County, Indiana, living with his mother Martha and siblings:

Name: John F Tanner
Age: 14
Birth Year: abt 1836
Birthplace: Indiana
Home in 1850: Brownstown, Jackson, Indiana
Gender: Male
Family Number: 796
Household Members:
Name Age
Martha Tanner 63 (43)
M Gordon C W Tanner 20
Samuel W Tanner 19
John F Tanner 14
Thomas H B Tanner 13
Andrew J Tanner 11
Mary J Tanner 8
Margaret A Tanner 6

John is a middle child. The History of Indianapolis, p 1022 has him and his brothers, Major (Moses)Gordon Tanner (oldest child) and Col Thomas H B Tanner named under the entry for George G Tanner: "Colonel Thomas H. B. Tanner was in command of the Twenty-second Indiana Infantry at the time of his death, and in the same regiment his younger brother, John F. C., was a lieutenant. Major Gordon Tanner had also served with gallantry as...."

Major Gordon Tanner's father, Col Thomas Tanner and mother, a daughter oF Benjamin Smith, are named in A Child's History of the United States, Volume 2, p 391 (google). Margaret Amanda (Tanner) Payne's (sister and youngest child), death certificate lists her father as Col Thomas Tanner and Martha Smith.

Is that enough?

RE: John & Simeon Bechtelheimer
Yes, Simeon's wife shares the stone with him. I created a FindAGrave memorial for her, # 133626601. Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you?
I will go back and look for little Christiana some more. Many of the markers where she lies are down and overgrown and/or weathered beyond legibility.

I'm confused - the memorial you created states that there is no stone for this person but you filed a photo request - what is it you might want photographed?

Hightower Mausoleum in Independence
Anna M. Gavan, Howard F. Dresman, and Madeline P Dresman are also buried in the Hightower Maus. No dates for them on the plot card. I did not look for them in the cemetery records. If you need a death date, please let me know. There are 10 places and eight are filled. The Allie Banister I gave you was born 1849 and died 1902.

RE: Marie Wickware
You are so very welcome. Glad I could help Those type markers are hard to get good pics of when they are changing in colors like that.

RE: Nathaniel B'Hymer
Yes, info I have given you comes directly from cemetery records. Usually I find that it means that exactly as to age at death. But I hesitate to use an exact date since it could be wrong.
