Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

Rob Roy Cemetery
Hi Lisa,

We have chatted before. Would you know how I can find the deceased names whom are interred in Lot #13 in Rob Roy?

It was deeded to Thomas Marquess in 1840, but he and his family are interred in Ohio.

Thank you,

Joanne Marcus Britcher

You have done a wonderful work with all of your listings. Thank you very much!!!
I found my relative, Thomas J. White and his wife, Cornelia Ann (Ward) White. But somehow her death year is posted as 1981, which would make her waaaaaaaaay too old! ha! Her tombstone says, 1881.
Thank you very much for alllllllll you do and are doing!

Not sure who gave the info on Arminda (Willis) Jones and her husb John Thomas Jones but she was def born in 1847. All census with her parents show her being born 1854 and 1900 census state she was born May 1855 but poss that was a yr off but only by 1 yr no more. In 1860 she was shown as 6, in 1870 16 and so on. Now her parents did not marry until 1853 so I am guessing that in 1900 census which was taken in June she forgot that she just had a birthday and told them she was 45 when she had just turned 46.

So def she was not born in 1847?? I can't even figure out who would have given that info unless it was one of her children and they were just guessing at her age bec they didn't know. Her husb John Thomas Jones accord to 1900 census was born Feb 1852 so his stone is just one yr off.

Am not sure if you are any kin to them, but Arminda's sister Laney mar David H Green and they had dt that mar my 2nd cousin 3x rem.

Rebecca Bake Campbell
Memorial # 29671078

Hi- I am currently working on a DAR application that includes Rebecca Bake Campbell in the lineage. Based upon the tombstone calculator, I came up with a calculated birthdate of 25 Oct 1790. Your record shows a date in November in New Jersey. I am really hoping that you may have some family information on Rebecca and her father John. Please contact me at Thank you. Sincerely, Ruth

Arthur Milton Kellogg
He was married to my great grandmother, Gertrude Mae Swallow Martin from July 10, 1920 until her death on Feb. 25, 1939. It was her second marriage, and likely his, too. Gertrude Mae Swallow (Gertrude Kellogg) is buried in the same cemetary but in a different section (block 10 versus block 26B). You created the FindAGrave info about her grave, too. There is a record of their marriage in the Indiana Marriage Collection.
Also, the record of the marriage between Arthur & Gertrude indicates that Arthur's mother is Mary Louise.
Thank you for all your hard work. It is so wonderful to be able to access this information.

agnes lawson/nancy lawson bennett
Lesa, I have just discovered your find-a-grave page for Nancy Ann Lawson Bennett, wife of Samuel Bennett. Samuel and Nancy were my grest-great grandparents. I have visited their gravesite in Riverside cemetery. Up until this year, for many years, I have decorated their gravesite for Memorial Day. Their son Edward and his wife are buried close by. I am descended from Sam and Nancy through their son Henry. I have much data on the 12 children of Sam and Nancy and their families, which I am happy to share with any interested parties. My email is
Now I have a question for you, Lesa. You say that Agnes Lawson was a Curtis. A number of researchers are saying the same thing, but none of them that I have found so far can document "Curtis" They all seem to copy from esch other off of Ancestry's public trees, but no documentation. I would be happy to add Curtis to my list of ancestors, but I need documentation. Can you help in this regard? Thank you. Dena Ward
