Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Indianapolis,IN. My mother's side settled in Indiana before it became a state. I was destined to be a genealogist after my Mother found my name on a tombstone before I was born. I am the namesake of my 4th great grandmother who died in 1859 in Decatur Co. I believe she helps me when I approach brickwalls. People call this a nice little hobby....I have found it to be the most addictive pleasure that never gets boring. Nothing better than a great mystery! I hope that I can help you with your quest for tombstone picture.

Thanks for the update. I couldn't find anything on him but with your hint I was able to find him on ancestry. Thanks again.

RE: Ida Smock
How sad, I see so many Mothers and infants in the cemeteries and I get a wave of sadness coming over me. My Great-Great Grandmother died in childbirth having her fourth baby. My Great-Grandfather was only three at the time, just so hard to imagine what that would be like. Guess I don't want to imagine.

Actually, the Maitland Cemetery is one of the best preserved cemeteries I snap. I live right here in Maitland, and have relatives buried in it. There are absolutely NO STONES lying on the ground, it is very well maintained. Unfortunately, many are illegible from the elements. If there are any others you wish me to find, let me know! I know the cemetery pretty well!

Yes, Rebecca, I could barely read it up close. If you click on the stone, you can read it a little better. The etching is not very deep, I am afraid in time it will be completely illegible. Thank goodness for Find-A-Grave to preserve our loved ones memorials!

RE: Memorial# # 133009744
You are welcome. I did not want to decline those edits, however, I thought if I don't then she is going to have the incorrect memorial for the edits. I wasn't sure of whether to have you just delete the edits and resumite them. Which would not have been fair to you. SO I just added the information to the Correct Helen L. What caught my attention was the fact that the two helens different burial information. Then I noticed one had a G on the end of the name and one did not. So then it was a matter of finding the correct husband for the one with the G. If you would like anything added to the memorials please let me know.

RE: George Tekulve/Clara Bischoff Tekulve Rott
You are welcome, Rebecca, I was happy to do it. They are both in St.Joseph Cemetery in section "C". I can't tell you the lot number. I stumbled upon them by accident, I was actually walking that section looking for some one else, and remembered the name Tekulve as being one of the photo requests for the cemetery.One of my baseball heroes when I was younger was a pitcher named Kent Tekulve, who threw submarine style, so the name stuck with me. Yes, they are right next to each other. Have a great day.

Re your message:

Find A Grave Memorial# 126213029 Roxanna Washburn Smith is NOT this mans sister. Delete her name from his memorial.
Thank you......

You would have to contact the person who created her memorial. Siblings can only be changed by them ... There is no way I can do so. :-)

Thank you so much for going to Sylvan Abbey Cemetery and getting the photos I requested for Eleanor and her husband Raymond Carlson. I was there earlier this year to get a photo of my great aunt's stone but at the time didn't know that Eleanor and Raymond were there also. Again, thank you so much for your work. Little Marie
