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 Line 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 remember...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"

Nancy Gordon Rock
She was my 3rd great grandmother. I have traced the Rock family back to Robert Alexander Rock (born 1717 in Balleymoney, Ireland). I have not been able to back any further and would appreciate any information that you would be willing to share.

Monument to James E. Easterly
James Elmer Easterly was my 1st cousin twice removed. You created a memorial for him, because he is listed on a memorial page of the Clinton County War Memorial. (Memorial # 130779096)

Thank you very much for remembering James. He has a personal memorial on Findagrave (#3525778) that says he died in the Philippines during World War I. I had never questioned that until I saw your posting of the Clinton County War Memorial, that showed James as having died in the Spanish-American War. When I looked up the dates of the two wars, the Spanish-American war was the only war at the time of James' death.

Thank you very much for posting the picture of the Clinton County War Memorial. Otherwise, I may never have known. Below is what his other memorial says.

Birth: Feb., 1822
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 21, 1901, Philippines

Killed during World War I. He had been in Company "L" of the 38th US Infantry. He had a brother, Oliver Harvy Easterly, who was in the same company.

James' parents were George Washington Bible Easterly of Tennessee and Martha D. Gill of Kentucky.

Memorial 130783517 Thomas Green
Hello, I don't know if anyone of the descendants of Thomas Green has contacted you on this memorial. However, the information from the DAR has unfortunately been mostly debunked at this point. The information given on this memorial that YOU have posted, about THEIR marker (not the grave) in Bartholemew County is incorrect. The Green Family Y-DNA project indicates that the descendants of Thomas Green, my husband Mark W. Green included, along with Ralph Green, and Rich Davis, has done extensive researcher on this, including myself, and one is published on the family. There is no relationship between Thomas Green and the Revolutionary War, and no proof he was paid nor ever was in the Revolutionary War. These stories originated from people who filled out DAR applications over 100 years ago, and then they were copied over and over again. My husband is descended from Daniel Green, Thomas' son by his wife Elizabeth Matthews (which is correctly stated here), and this family settled Fayette County, IN, NOT Bartholemew County. The land records and burials for Thomas Green's progeny are all recorded in Connersville, IN in the courthouse there. THe story of his dying in the swift moving stream may or may not be true, as his land in Nulltown, Fayette County, IN is on the river/canal there and was passed down to his Green children for almost 150 years. It also houses the original Green Cemetery for this family which is still on the same land, and has been designated a pioneer cemetery by the State of Indiana. Thomas was not BURIED in Bartholemew, did not die in Bartholemew, he was never a land owner in Bartholemew, and his children were never born nor died there. And his burial site cannot be found regardless. That of all of Thomas'children are known to us and are on Find A Grave. Thomas shows up in the records in Indiana due to his death in 1822 when probate is opened on his estate, having died at some time previously. The probate records are in Connersville in the County Courthouse for Fayette County. NOT for Batholemew County. We drove there last summer with my husband and we took pictures of all the probate and court books indicating that Thomas Green died in that county, and the probate/court records list his children, the dispensation of his estate to his children, guardians of his children, outlines of his land. He never died in Bartholemew regardless. I have those pictures of the handwritten court records if you care to see them. My question is that since this is not a GRAVE stone, with verifiable information, and the DAR does not verify information or facts over time on those submitted, nor does it have the time, is it possible to help us NOT perpetuate a story that we are certain is not true, parts of it, or even that which is unproved but disputed? He never was paid nor received money for the Revolution and during which he would have just been born in 1760! His children were all born in Orange, NC and there are several things about this story that we just can't stamp out! Nonetheless, if you can at least add some asterik to indicate that the FTDNA Green Family Y-DNA Project has led to a rethinking of these facts, that would be greatly appreciated! We have 3 cousins (Ralph, Mark and Rich Davis all between 6th and 7th cousins matched by the Green Y-DNA project) that have done research on the family. Otherwise, if it doesn't matter to you, deleting it all together since it isn't a gravesite and that's what Find A Grave is about, would be even better! Thanks for any consideration you might want to bestow on the family. We've gone to great lengths to find old burial grounds and restore them and to try to correct the record with facts. Ralph is a journalist and Rich Davis, published on the family, is a historian extraordinaire. I trust their research implicitly. Thomas Green is the son of John Green, and the Y-DNA tests have put together two different branches of the John Green family... Thomas Green's and his BROTHER Daniel Green's history. My husband is descended from Thomas Green's SON Daniel, and Ralph Green is descended from Thomas Green's BROTHER Daniel, and Rich Davis, a noted and published genealogist and historian from Utah ON his Green family descendancy, is descended from another of Thomas Green's children. So, we're on this! THanks. Any thoughts? Letitia Green, MBA, M.Ed., Charlottesville, VA

James Finley
Shockey Family of Franklin Co., PA.
I have traced my wife's Shockey Family back to Johann Cristoff Shockey. Her line was through the 2 David's of Franklin County, PA. near Quincy. I recently told my Father-In-Law, Kenneth Shockey, about his family and would like to share with him as much information as possible. He is 85 years old, but in pretty good health. He is interested in visiting the area around Quincy and Waynesboro, PA and learning about where his family lived.
Anything you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Jim in Maryland

Crazy question about 81896907 and 81896922
Hi! I've been poring over this, and just came to a surprising possible answer: could it be that these girls were not Kerfoots, but rather Shepherds? I ask because I photographed a stone on Saturday at Berryville Baptist Cemetery, and the stone is for "Ellanora and Hattie Kerfoot, infant children of Rev. T.B. and Ella Shepherd."

Seems unlikely that these aren't one in the same--there was only one "T.B. and Ella" in the cemetery, and that was the Shepherds.

I'd love to hear your thoughts,

Thank you very much for your reply. I was coming to the same conclusion, and was beginning to think it was just me.
