Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I have been doing family Genealogy as far back as I can remember. My Great Aunt Pauline had me walking in cemeteries as soon as I was old enough to walk. My aunt Pauline Myers died in 2000 but I still carry on with her research.

This is a wonderful place to remember our loved ones and too pass along information to others. Coming from a military family I have been trying to record the graves of the Veterans, especially the civil war vets. Many of the old stones are gone but with a sight like this maybe they will not be forgotten. My daughter and I spend weekends finding old cemeteries that have been forgotten, (a lot of walking). We have also recorded cemeteries where all headstones are gone and the only records for these graves are recorded at the county library.

I want to thank Dave and Apple Dwiggins for the info on the Indiana Service men who were killed during World War II, and are buried at the Manila American Cemetery. See their web page here.

My grandma, Inez Rogers (Buried at Grandview Cemetery, Vigo Co. IN) died Aug. 7th 2009 if you have time please visit her memorial and leave a flower.

Thank you so much for the posting the wonderful picture of Chester Tuttle and Nancy Moore! A friend and I tried to get to that cemetery a few years ago, but some construction kept us out, we couldn't find a way into it. Would you mind if I used this picture on my personal website?

Rowe Cemetery
If you look at Albert S. Squires #72435179 (Rowe Cemetery, Rockville, Indiana) you will see that your Robert S. Squir needs to be deleted. You have entered the wrong name.

Thank you

Heddings Cemetery in Owen Co
Hi, Is there any way to change the name of Headings Chapel Cemetery in Owen Co., Indiana to Heddings? It is misspelled on Google maps also. I sent Google maps a correction. Thanks in advance.

Picture of my father's gravestone
Dear Vada,
I added a picture of my father's tombstone to find a grave but your name is under the added by picture of the stone. Can I have my name recorded there since I am the owner of this site and picture? Thanks Kay kraftykaykat@frontier.com

Hi Vada, I think what you are doing is great. I am wondering if you are not related to the Whitkanack Family in Clark County, Ill., if I could have their memorials? They are related thru my Walls line?
Thanks so much.
