Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: Biggins at Roselawn
Hi Jim, I can check. It is posted they have nearly 14,000 graves! You might be very busy:-) perhaps, we could do a section at a time? Hope all is well with you:-)

Glad I could help taking the photo. The baby's name is on the side of his parents tombstone. The baby didn't have a stone of his own.
Have a good day,

RE: Brunot Cemetery
I haven't been there. Is it on private land? Give me a heads up and I'll go with you. Geraldine

your question on reason why i haven't added
As I mentioned in Uncle Cleon's memorial, there is a delay in when people transfer that by the time it does get transferred I'm off on another family line. Thanks by the way in adding the photo of Uncle Cleon and Aunt Nellie from my ancestry tree to her memorial. BTW, they do have stones as I have seen them! Has the grass been mowed? Every time I come home no one maintains that cemetery to where I can walk back and get photos of my family graves! Thanks again Jim!

RE: Kathryn Bennett
Yes, she is gone and I have added her memorial to findagrave and linked her to her mother. Thanks for the heads up.

Good deal. Give you something to do when the weather turns nice. I tried to take a few in Walnut grove today but I have to do sooo much cleaning of the flat ones especially. They get so covered in the grass! I didn't take many. geraldine
