Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired,and working on my family genealogy. I have now entered most burials for River View to Find A Grave. I am also working on a project to aid in the search for burials in Section Q, there are no lot markers in this section making it difficult to find burials. I have several books on burials in Dearborn & Ohio counties in Indiana. I volunteer on several sites to do free look-ups,of burials in these counties. I will also search for anyone here. Just e-mail your request with the name, date, and the permit number,if known.
Also, if I entered a person in your family on Find A Grave, and you would like to add a bio for that person, email me with the information you would like to add, and I will add it for you, and give you credit for the info.

Iva P. Ross
This is my paternal grandmother. I was trying to correct her maiden name and mistakenly put Glissman (her mother's maiden name). Iva's maiden name was shott not short as listed. Thanks.

Pete-While going through old emails, I found where you had sent interment information, which I had requested, and I was going to send you links to Zuria Collins Ramey and William Collins parents. I am very sorry for taking so long to send the links; they are there now-in the Edit tab section. Thank you for all of your hard work! Laura.

Coopers in River View
Hello Pete,

I'm hoping you can help me with the Coopers again.

I think the Mary A Cooper (#14893174) Jun. 16, 1809 - Sep. 7, 1891 might be the mother of 3 other Coopers in the cemetery.

Do you have any other information about her? or her burial?

I think Jessie H (#18778347), Robert L (#19223312) and Mary L Maryman (#14884110) might be her children

My Mary Cooper's husband's name as Basil which matches notes on Robert & Mary's memorials

Thanks for your work

Hello Pete,

Thank you for making the updates to George and Barbara Drexler and their daughter Louise. George and Barbara are my wife's Great-Great Grandparents. Their daughter Margaret Rabe is her Great Grandmother.

Much Appreciated,

RE: Gould and O'Connor
I found a copy of the death record for Verna and Arnold. All my resources are cited on if you look up their names. I am not actually related. I have been doing a lot of genealogy for my husband's family and came across information for your family. If you feel like it is incorrect please let me know and I will look into it! I don't have a marriage date or any parental information on Arnold so if you have those I would love to get that from you!

Thank you for your timely response on the Benke/Beinke requests. I am aware of the protocols on Find A Grave but have found not everyone approaches this the same. I appreciate that you are very invested in what you are doing and that helps so much.
You have an amazing number of site entries in the cemeteries of many historic, extended family members. I am sure I will be sending many more updates for your sites. I do hope to visit those cemeteries in a few years. If I lived closer, I could bring you some Christmas cookies that I'm sure all the old "familie" would have approved of...
Will always appreciate your time and efforts!
