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.

Grave of Rebecca Jane Henderson Cannon
Great work you do. I was involved in cemetery recording for years and I know how hard you work. I just found the grave of Rebecca Jane Henderson Cannon in Greenlawn Cemetery, Wingate, Montgomery County, Indiana. I believe this is the grave of my gggrandmother. She had two children before she died: Martha E. Cannon and Clarkson Eli Cannon. I am curious how you learned that her maiden name was Henderson. Is there a death certificate on record somewhere. This grave is not where we have expected it to be as she was married in Blue River, Hancock County, Indiana and we supposedly had her children there as they are listed in the 1850 census in that county. I am not questioning, just wondering if there is information out there that I can find also.

Margaret Ellis Wiltermood 619159822
I just entered a Memorial for Margaret's sister, Martha Ellis Remley based on information on death certificate.
I didn't find a listing for Martha so I put one in hoping someone could find her grave.
From searching for one of my relatives I came across a Fnd A Grave listing for Jacob Remley in Newport Cemetery, Newport, In. His listing only shows a reference to his Civil War regiment, Co K 97th Ind Inf. No family or dates for birth death.
According to what I see, Jacob is Martha's husband.
According to Census records Martha lived with her sisters in later life. The last Census before her death she was living with sister Margaret Ellis Wiltermood in Eugene. Margaret helped with information on death certificate.
My purpose is to reconnect Jacob and Martha on the Find A Grave records so that their history can be preserved.
Of course, all this is supposed family connection based on Census and Find A Grave information. Thanks for all the work you do these memorials.

Martha Patsy Epperson
My name is Brenda Clark, I am looking for Thomas Jefferson Clark who married Martha Patsy Epperson. All I know is Martha was born abt 1835-1840 in TN
Her parents were Joshua Epperson born 1792 in VA died Oct. 3, 1841 Hamilton co, Il. Married 1814 in TN to Mary Overton born 1791 in VA died Aug. 1, 1850 Hamilton co, Il.
I found dates for Thomas 1868-1902 but I have no idea if that is correct.
Thomas and Martha had several children one of which was Abraham Lincoln Clark 1860-1937 and married to Julia Ann Bolen 1861-1945
If you have any information, on Thomas Jefferson and Martha Clark would you please share, thank you so much!

Re: Albert Francis Coons Sherman
Did someone give you this information or are you related. He was my mother's grandfather. Her maiden name was Coon. She said some of them went by Coons and some Coon and others Sherman. I was just wondering if you had any insight to this.
