I am one of the many members of my family interested in Genealogy.
As a little girl I enjoyed writing down all of my family members names and birth dates including cousins. I collected Funeral Cards and obits. I liked knowing everything. I started hardcore research in 2000 while living in Florida even though I was born and raised in Indiana. I am now back in Indiana and can further investigate my lines. My father has been researching prior to me for the last 40 or so years. I enjoy the interesting people I meet and the information that I find. I am a Mother of 3 and Grandmother of 6.
Anyone wanting information on the lines that are directly linked to me can contact me at the email address listed. I am also accepting requests for any obituaries of anyone who died in Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co, Indiana that would be on Microfilm at the Tippecanoe Co. Library. I visit the library often. Anyone with a look-up can email me with the full name, date of death and place of death [local only] and I will do my best to find the obituary.
Along with obituaries searches I do enjoy doing cemetery searches and photo requests. I currently have about 27,000 names in my family tree, all connected to the Rock/Shockey Line. I am a descendant of John and Catherine McClellan Rock, Johann Cristoffel Schake [Shockey], John and Rachel Van Hook Loveless, George W Sr and Lucy Stith Kerfoot, Aaron and Nancy Sproul Gordon, William and Martha McClay Tippin and John H and Mary Long Sellers on my father's side and James and Eva Thompson Graham and Charles and Bertha Wilson Hulett on my mother's side.
Most of the memorials that I have added are related to me somehow, however I have added a few memorials for local Tippecanoe, Clinton, Boone, Benton and Warren Co, Indiana cemeteries. If you find a memorial that is from your line just ask and as long as I am not connected I will do transfers.
PLEASE...Before you add a new memorial. Make sure someone did not already create one. It is very disrespectful to the labor of love that other people went through for someone else to just add another memorial and forget about theirs.
PS. The picture is me at about 3 months. I was the first born granddaughter to Ina Mae Graham Nydegger and my dress said "Grandmas Little Sweetheart"

I said a minimal fee . . . there is no charge to use, join if you want . . . a donation jar is all, if you like, copies are priced similar to library . . .
You can obtain copies of many original items . . . think you would love it . . . workers are great to help . . . Much Info . . .
Try It, Larry
|L J Woods||Kerfoot/39403740|
Thanks, but really all that hard work was the most fun I've had all winter . . . hope you all enjoy . . .
Also, when you are hunting for anything or anyone, we have the best source of information right here in Tippecanoe County, the Historical Society and Geneology Center . . .
They have obits, death records, marriage, cemetery and many funeral homes that are no longer in existence, land maps etc, really wonderful source . . . all for a very minimal charge . . . all volunteers, who do not give up easily . . .
I volunteer there, and I was there 10 minutes asking about Lewis's gravesite, and they found it. I found the funeral home record from your obit, Soller-Baker, they were great to get us a copy. From there on the Historical Society was a great help.
They are really a great bunch of folks, devoted to their work, give them a try the next time you have a mystery, tell them I sent you!!!
Have Fun Hunting, Connect anytime . . .
PS If any photos come up, I will let you know . . .

I had just found the obits earlier this week, and had not had time to post them yet. I'll get them all updated today.

SUCCESS. LEWIS IS FOUND ! ! !
We were correct on Section 27, Plot 209 . . .
Located gravesite, photographed tombstone and added to your sight . . .
Also will see Tom in April, will see if his father (Age 99) has any photo's of Kerfoot's you may be interested in. If so will copy and send to you . . .
|L J Woods||kerfoot/39403740|
Possibly corrected Plot No but not Section???
Will double check . . .
|L J Woods||Kerfoot/39403740|
One other thing . . . in the original copy of book on Springvale, listing for Lewis . . .
Book shows Section 27, Plot 209 . . . the 0 in 209 was marked out and a 4 was written above it making it 249!
We could find no plot 249 in Section 27, so we ASSUMED (Not a good thing to do) it to be the original entry of 209 . . . I also will check out cemetery . . . if not there, he may be in Section 35 as I had thought originally . . .
Either way we will locate him . . . he needs to be with family!
|David R. Cheesman, Sen.||Martha Isabelle Loveless Brown (1902-1982) transfer|
I am pleased to transfer Martha Isabelle Loveless Brown (1902-1982) to you to manage.
With all kindest wishes,
|L J Woods||Gravesite/Lewis A Kerfoot/39403740|
It is truly a small world, even in death . . .
Your Find-a-grave for Charles A Rock . . . 24332531 . . . Springvale Cemetery, Section 27, Lot 185 is almost next to Lewis . . .
Lewis Albert Kerfoot, 29403740 is in Section 27, Lot 209 . . .
My Grandparents are in Section 27, Lot 212 . . .
SMALL WORLD . . . SEE MAP IB FIND-A-GRAVE . . .
You were probably within a few feet of Lewis when you found Charles . . . He was not buried in the Paupers Section (Section 35) as I thought . . . so possibility of tombstone GOOD . . . I seem to remember many tombstones in area of by grandparents . . .
My grandparents were James and Maria Railling . . . have two small headstones . . .Lewis should be just east about two lots . . .
Again, my apologies, Have placed a map of Section 27 with lots of each marked for you reference . . . You should be able to remove, but if not, I will upon hearing from you . .
Good Hunting . . . Larry
|L J Woods||Kerfoot/39403740|
I have a friend who is verifying the gravesites at Springvale with the cemetery records . . .
Will contact her, she should be able to give us a lot and gravesite number . . . headstone is questionable as he was buried by the township . . . only have one if family placed there . . .
