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 through my message board here.I currently have about 27,000 names in my family tree, all connected to the Rock/Shockey, Loveless/Kerfoot, Thompson/Graham and Wilson/Hulett Lines which connect together through my grandparents. I am a descendant of John and Catherine McClellan Rock, Aaron and Nancy Sproul Gordon, Johann Cristoffel Schake [Shockey], John and Rachel Van Hook Loveless, George W Sr and Lucy Stith Kerfoot, William and Martha McClay Tippin and John H and Mary Long Sellers, Harrison and Mary Penrod Sparger, Jonathan B and Rebecca Reynolds Rice 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. To me its not about numbers...its about Family! I believe that everyone should be remembered...whether they have a tombstone or not. I would like to eventually mark my family graves that do not have markers, even if its a small engraved stone...just something that says "Hey I was here. I lived my life and now I am gone. Do not forget me".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"

Pvt Earl Prather
I have submitted a correction on Pvt Earl Prather. He is incorrectly linked to the wrong father. There are several Earl Prathers in this cemetery. Perhaps he belongs to one of the others. The one he is connected to would have only been 8 years old at his birth. I know all his children and none of them are named Earl, nor are they deceased. Thank you.

I noticed some of the researchers on Ancestry have Amanda & Ora as twins, both born 19 Jul 1881.

I'm looking for some connection between Elizabeth and her parents Joseph and Dorothy Rodger Loveless (Lovelace), Wills, birth, death, marriage with parents names, letters of administration. Any ideas?

He was buried at Arlington Cemetery, you mentioned a memorial but no mention of where he was buried. He was a cousin and I was at the service at Arlington with his parents and my parents.

Hi, There

I am always interested when someone is researching Parks AND I have a George McClellan Parks in the mix so your McClellan certainly caught my eye! Do you have an ancestry or other tree to view? And, how fortunate you are to have a family and father who participate in genealogy!!!

Berniece Shockey
"While at play at her home, Bernice, the 4-year-old daughter of Nathan Shockey, living near Papinsville, was killed. The little girl was leaning against a gate which was suddenly opened, causing her to fall backwards on her head. Her neck was broken."

Elisabeth Shockey Potts
Do you have information on where Mary Potts - B. 1860 and Ella Potts - B. 1862 - children of Elisabeth Shockey Potts and Wilson Potts, are buried? I am related on the Potts side of the family and have located most of the other children. Also, is Baby Nevilles the daughter of Emma Elizabeth Potts Nevilles, both buried at Riverside Cemetery, Jones County, Iowa? Do you know where Nevilles is buried. Don't have a first name for him. Dora Potts is buried at Mount Auburn Memorial Park, Cook County, Illinois, but can't locate her husband, Albert A. Clarke - B. 1875 - England - Died before 1940 in Iowa. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for all the work you do.
