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.

RE: Tabitha Mann
Thanks Vada,
I'm not related either, and I am on the same mission as you. Thanks for getting back with me, and let's keep paying it forward one photo or fact at a time :)

Lucinda Arney Fiscus cemetery
Hello Vada,
I am writing, because I have a contributor that needs information from the Fiscus Cemetery. I cannot find a number for the people who handle that cemetery, and I live in Mississippi and cannot get there to find this information on Noah Arney, and Lucinda Arney. If you can find a phone number of someone that can help it would be appreciated if you cannot.

Thank you
... for posting the picture of the County Home Cemetery [aka the Poor Farm] for Joseph A Wright
[Cemetery Photo Added by: Vada L. Long] at Find A Grave Memorial# 137655051

Did you happen to 'survey' the cemetery also; and - if so - were you successful in finding any readable headstones?

ANY info on this person would be greatly appreciated.

Headings Chapel Cemetery
I visited this cemetery in about 1993 or 94. I found the gravestone of my great grandfather George W. McConnell at that time. It was way back on a dead end road far from everyone. The cemetery was in a neglected state at the time I visited. George's tombstone was toppled and it looked as if the place had had no attention in a long number of years.

My Uncle Jim, his grandson, and I righted the stone and tried to prop it up, between the base and the engraved stone with stones found nearby.

From the nice pictures it appears that much has been done to rehab this cemetery. It appears that George's stone may have a new base. Those making those improvements are to be commended and thanked as well as Vada for the posting. It is the first time that I have been aware that there was a newspaper reporting of George's death.
