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"

Thank you for sending me the information about this person being on the Civil War Marker. He may be an ancestor, however, I will need more information. Is there any more information about the individuals on this marker such as next of kin? Thanks in advance for any further help. Julie Spellman

I was wondering if you are related to James C Gaunt? Would you have any additional information you can share on his life / family? If not, would you be willing to transfer? I am related to James and would like find out all I can about his life and service to our country. Thanks - Herb Gaunt

RE: David Sims + David C. McKown
Hi again, Fonda. I thought I'd update you on what I found out about the Clinton County War Memorial. The contact for it is _not_ the library; it's Joe Root, the Veterans Service Officer at the courthouse. And, as I had suspected, the names on the memorial tablets are _not_ "all" the Clinton County veterans but just those killed in the wars. Here's the way Joe explained it in an email to me: "The Vertical Tablets are the names of people that were killed in the wars. Any one can have a Paver Brick placed in the Memorial with their name on it and it will be red. The White Pavers are for those members that were KIA, KIS and POW's. This is how the Memorial was funded and paid for by donations. There is no State money or County Money. It was all paid for by people who wanted to Honor our veterans." Now you'll know if somebody else asks.

RE: David Sims + David C. McKown
Thanks for your reply.

David Sims _is_ on the monument, but he still is not linked to his real burial place. How do we accomplish that?

After I sent you my earlier messages, I realized that I had been deceived by the language about honoring "all" Clinton County war veterans, because the names on the monument couldn't possibly be the names of "all" the Clinton County war veterans -- just some of them. I have the impression you aren't responsible for what was put on the monument, and you're just doing a good deed by putting the same names on F.A.G. Is that right? So who is responsible for the monument itself? Do you have contact information for him/her/them? They must have some provision for dealing with future additions and corrections. David C. McKown is _not_ on the monument but certainly deserves to be, but I have the feeling there are a number of Clinton County veterans in that situation. Thanks again.

RE: Thomas & Rebecca Baugh

It has been a few months but thought I would let you know finally got it sorted out with Thomas and Rebbecca. The person that took the grave photos confirmed they were buried at the Christian Church cemetery. However I deleted my memorial pages even though they were in the correct place, but was able to contact Brenda Joyce to move her memorial pages from Odd Fellows to the proper cemetery. I thought that was the best solution to the problem since it also preserved all the family links she had added for Rebecca Baugh. Hope that ends any confusion it might have caused with the duplicate memorial pages at different cemeteries.

Re: Thomas Sparks
I notice that you added a photo of Thomas Sparks tombstone (Loveless Cemetery). Thank you. I was in this cemetery in the 1970s and took a photo of Thomas Sparks' tombstone. It did NOT have the urn on top. I think someone found the urn and place it on top of Thomas' tombstone. BUT, I also have a photo of Benjamin and Elizabeth Loveless (inlaws of Thomas Sparks) tombstone in the 1970s and it DID have this urn on top, but now it is missing. Do you know the trustee in charge of Loveless Cemetery to contact about getting the urn placed on top of the right monument? See Benjamin Loveless' memorial at Loveless Cemetery.
