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.

Thank you for a speedy update to her page, "RESPECT" goes out to you for not wanting to be right, rather than be correct. I added you as a friend. Be careful this Memorial holiday weekend. Kenneth Primeaux #48728641.

Agnes Baker Wilson
Thank you so very much for taking on this wonderful work. My name is Judy Zarlengo I am 78 andnot very good with the computer - but I am learning. My Great Aunt was Agnes Baker Wilson, I wonder if the one you have is my Great Aunt died in March 30, 1979. My Great uncle was Mitch Wilson - but that just might have been a nickname. Her Father was Jno Baker 1865-1926 in Kentucky. Her Mother was Anna Baker 1860-1945. That is all I have on my Great Grandmother. Agnes sisters were Teresa Foster, Grace Corbishley,Hansel (my Grandmother) Her brother was Archie Baker and Charley Baker. Do I have the right grave? thank you again so much Judy Zarlengo

Honora Dunkin (Ward)
I finally found out, through, that Honora died in 1920 in Ohio and is buried in the Mount Victory Cemetery in Mount Victory, Ohio. No grave stone picture is available but I found her death certificate with all the information.

Honora Dunkin (Ward)
I am searching for my great Aunt Honora (Nora) Ward. She married Isaac Joshua Dunkin on April 22, 1894. Honora was born in Fountain County, Indiana on July 9, 1871. Her father was William Ward and her mother was Druzilla Ward (Lemon).

You post a picture of her son Forrest's grave marker under Memorial #29896712, and, list his parents as Isaac Joshua Dunkin and Honora Dunkin. But there are no links to his parent's graves.

Would you have any information as to where Honora Dunkin (Ward) might be buried?

Thanks for any help.

Elizabeth Yeager 1828-1880; she was married/divorced to James P. Campbell and maybe a Barker,my great great grandmother

Her parents were John Yeager and Margaret Peggy Beauchamp. Margaret would be the sister to Rachel Beauchamp Brown....your line

Stanley Day
John N Day
I am the great great grandson of John Day and Nancy ann Worthington, who are buried in Salem Cemetery in Attica, Indiana. I seek either a very clear picture or a rubbing of the Grave Stone of John to verify the middle initial. N. Also I seek the complete inscription on Nancy Ann Days Grave marker. Since I live in Oregon I must look for help on this. Can you help? Please let me know. at Thankyou

P.S. Is there a telephone number where I could reach someone who is in charge of the Salem Church Cemetery where John and Nancy Ann Day are intumbed?

Schendel Family
I have tried for years to piece together Ms Ardella Schendel of Chicago & Danville to my family in Chicago. I cannot find any connecting documentation except for the 1940 census and her grave. Her paperwork suggests to me she married a relative after 1934; however, I cannot find one item pro or con.

Can you assist me??

Thank you.

Wilson Claypool
Regarding Wilson Claypool (29686100) (as well as sibling information posted on all his children's memorials): Census information and a Fountain County history list a second daughter, Mary Elizabeth, married to Nelson Case. There is a memorial for her without her maiden name (11301025); her husband's memorial gives his wife's maiden name as Claypool, and includes a passage from what looks like a book about a college. (11301183).

I want to publicly apologize to you and your family for my comment below, I do respect the passion, persistence, time and drive you and your family has for this site. It is by far the best of its kind, and its that way because of families like yours. as in my own small endeavor, I only partly understand what it takes.
After telling a friend that I felt bad after leaving such a nasty message, she asked me,"would you say that to her face? If so, don't apologize". The fact is, I don't know. I hope that you keep up the drive and passion that makes this site #1.
Contributors should respect all contributors no matter the situation, and I failed there, as for that, I am truely Sorry.
