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.

Mary Cole-Hensley
Charles Raymond Cole
Hi, my name is Mary Cole-Hensley and Charles Raymond Cole was my grand uncle.
I was wondering if you could shed some light on his spouse. His headstone shows he was buried with Ella E Cole 1898-1977, yet it is also stated he was a widower at the time of his death.
Is Ella not his wife? I understand if you don't know....I wasn't sure if you just took the photo of his headstone or were his family.
Thank you for your consideration. Mary

RE: Riverview Cemetery
Trying to find my 3rd great grandparents. Samuel and Susannah Boyd Stoneking. (Their son married the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Willman). Susannah died in 1855 and Samuel in 1858. Maybe the church cemeteries?

You have created this memorial. I wonder if you know where the marriage information came from for her marriage to George Mendell?

Joel Lynn Birth Date
Hello, Pete. Thanks for all your excellent work on Riverview Cemetery. I have found many useful records and grave marker photos through your fine efforts.

I think there may be a discrepancy on the birthdate for Joel Lynn. His monument states that he died on April 2, 1868, at age 69 years and 3 months; that would make his birthdate in about January 1799. The Find a Grave entry indicates a birth date of 1859; that date does not seem correct, especially since he is listed as married to Eliza (Elizabeth Walker born 1803) and with sons born in the 1840s.

Joel was the husband of Elizabeth (Eliza) Walker. Thanks for your help in correcting his birthdate entry.

RE: Walter Kerr b. 1799
Hi Pete,

Yes, there are two Walter Kerrs. Walter Kerr (No.1) was born in 1799 in NC. He married Elizabeth Russell on 13 Sept 1821. I don't know if they were married in KY or Dearborn Co. IN.

Walter Kerr No. 2 was the grandson of No. 1. He was married to Delight Benton in 1893 in Lawrenceburg, Dearborn Co. IN.

Are you related? This is a really interesting line. My line is from Walter Kerr No. 1. His daughter Elizabeth Kerr married my Gr. Grandfather, William B. Terhune.

Thanks so much for your help and dedication to Find A Grave!

Walter Kerr b. 1799

My family records differ from your memorial to Walter Kerr. I wonder if you might check to make sure this is correct. The family says he was married to Elizabeth Russell, who was born on 14 Jun 1803 in Licking River, KY. She married Walter Kerr on 13 Sep 1821 in either KY or Dearborn County.

Thanks so much for checking into this, it is greatly appreciated.
