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 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"

Elizabeth Loveless (Lovelace)
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!!!

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.

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.

Family links:
George Washington Bible Easterly (1836 - 1926)
Martha D Gill Easterly (1844 - 1911)

James E Easterly (1822 - 1901)
Lula L Easterly Ashley (1879 - 1959)*

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,
