I have been working on my family history since about 1978. I live in Terre Haute, Indiana, and I currently write the Sunday "Genealogy" column for the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. I am a member of the Clay County Genealogical Society, the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society, and the WVGS Cemetery Committee.
If I have a memorial of your relative that you would like transferred to you, please contact me.
If you have any additions or corrections to make to one of my memorials, please click on the "edit" button of the memorial.
About my photographs. If you would like a copy of any cemetery marker that I have photographed, simply ask, and I will send you a copy. You may use the copy for yourself and share with immediate family members. I will not give permission for anyone to use one of the photos I own to add to Ancestry.com, where it will become part of a pay-per-view database and will be open to theft by anyone who uses that site. The personal photos of my family and pets that I own are not to be duplicated without my permission. These are from family photo albums and are not to be placed in family trees that end up on Ancestry. If you are related, please contact me. I have no problem sharing. Please respect my choice not to have photos that I take for free, as a volunteer, with the intention of helping others, placed on a for-profit web site. Thanks.
If you like animals, visit my pet cemetery. Some kind individuals have sponsored the memorials of my cats. Thanks again to them.
RE: Charles K. Hoback Thanks for the reply and a big thank you for posting this memorial in the first place. I was able to view the obituary by using another computer. Must be something to do with my browser. Anyway that information in the obituary provided the link my family has been looking for. Charles K. is my great great grandfather. Now I need to find something to prove who HIS father was. Anyway thanks so much! Jeff
Charles K. Hoback Hi, I am interested in filling out my family tree and trying to find out whether Charles K Hoback, d. 12/4/1922 in Brazil, IN is a relative. I would like to read that obituary you in the memorial do you have a larger file you could send me that is big enough to read? thanks, Jeff Hoback email@example.com
Was there anything in the list of H. L. Bynum that may have mentioned a widow or a certificate number of 384.980 that was filed 29 Jan 1891 ? A Civil War pension application by Fannie Harmon (my 2nd great grandmother) and this memorial for Solomon both say K. 149 Ind. Inf.. Thanks, Belinda
Sgt F M Mathis (#67267919) Tamie, I realize after adding a photo to your memorial, that it's aduplicate of WVGS memorial (#52441200). I transferred my photo to their memorial, and deleted my photo from your memorial. You may want to delete your memorial. Cliff
Sgt Mathias (#67267919) Tamie, I posted a photo to your memorial in Summit Lawn Cemetery. Please check it! Last name spelling is Mathis not Mathias, with initials of F.M., and the Company reads D not B. Above the name is SERGT, and as you put in his BIO, he was in 117 Indiana Infantry.
