I have gotten into my Family's Geneology and it has inspired me to give back to others to help find and build their own Family Tree. I love this site because for those of us who don't have a lot of time to travel, to pay our respects to our Ancestors, atleast we can get to see their Tombstone and it helps bring me closer to them. I do plan on taking vacations and capturing my own pictures of them, but this will help me in my search through the cemetery, because someone has already shown me what they look like. My family is the most important thing in my life. I can't spend time with my Ancestors getting to know them, so atleast I can reach out to find them, visit them, thank them for their Journey through life, and tell our children their story of what they have done, where they have lived, and how they have made us who we are today. Building a "Ferree Family Tree" will take a lifetime to keep up with, but the past won't change, it has been left behind for us to find, and I am going to take on that Challange, and with some help I will pass on the Ferree Family Adventures.

Martha Jane (Ferree) Canter Shuck I have found two headstones with Martha's name on them. Her first husband's (Fred Canter) headstone is showing the name "Mattie" with birth and death dates matching Martha's. This source can be found at www.findagrave.com, Memorial #84852472 (Fairview Cemetery, New Albany, IN). The second headstone is found at Martha's memorial page at www.findagrave.com, Memorial #84852453 (Fairview Cemetery, New Albany, IN). This headstone has her second husband, Oscar Shuck's name engraved on it with his year of birth but no death date. That might be because Oscar Shuck is buried with his first wife, Matilda Hirt, who died in 1923. Oscar's memorial page is at www.findagrave.com, Memorial #68042129 (Saint Mary's Catholic Cemetery, New Albany, IN). I haven't had a chance to check with the sexton at each cemetery to determine where, in fact, Martha is buried or which husband she's buried with. If you have further information about the double burials, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks! --Sheila
Ruth Moore Contacted Resthaven Cemetery...here is their response.
We only have one Ruth Moore. She is buried in Section 6 lot 759 grave 4. Next to her is Mattie Moore grave 5 and Harold Moore grave 6.On the back side of the monument is Ella Moore & a Mr & Mrs Waldrop.
We have a Ruth Story buried in Sect. 18 Lot 404 grave 2. She was 82 years old and died April 1, 2002.
We do not have anyone with all those names Ruth Anderson Story Moore.
The Ruth Moore they have buried at Resthaven is Sept. 22, 1931. I am not sure this is the Ruth Moore you are looking for? Possibly the Ruth Moore you are searchin for is not buried at Resthaven??? Thanks, Susan
Ross relatives Dane, I am so happy to have found you. We are distant cousins, and I, too, am on a journey to research some of our relatives. My father , Harry F. Ross, was the youngest child of Doris "thedaisy' and George Washington Ross. My aunt was Helen Ross Yowell Heckman. In fact, my birth name was Mary Helen Ross, named for my mother and my Dad's favorite sister. I changed my name legally in 2009, to Mary Ross-High, in honor of my father who died in 2008. I am researching the Rosses, and Wallaces. I need to find Ambrose Ross, father of Ben, grandfather of George. (died in 1913 , Marion county , Indiana) I am looking for the 'Scotland connection.' I spent alot of time talking to Dad about the Ross and Wallace history. Please contact me and let's share some facts/family stories. email@example.com
