Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 40 years or more, started out with my mother and looking in the Seattle Libraries for information on my mother's family. My father knew mostly about his Morse family, where they came from and how they got to the USA. My mother on the other hand didn't know much except for the maiden names of her mother's people. Needless to say it has been a great journey and adventure in not only the history of both sides but a great pleasure in finding out where our people are from and where their final resting places are. I never would have found out or had been able to see where they are had it not of been for other's kindness and love for the same reasoning of being able to find a loved one lost so many years before. Credit is due to others who have helped in this journey, thanks to all of you who have added a picture or information, very much appreciated!

I went to the Ripley Cemetery today. I took a long hard look at Mr Harland's broken stone, on the left-bottom corner there may be the remains of the date "March". That's all.

RE: David Harlan
It's quite a ways to Ripley for me. Jerry Owen, who created the memorial, lives in the Ripley area. Maybe he can find something.

To the best of my knowledge, that stone was lying all by itself. Not many pedastals around. If I slide by that way again, I might do some more looking. Pretty large cemetery.

RE: David Randall
I will try and wander thru Lawn 25 next time I am there and see if I can locate a marker for him. Otherwise, his marker if he has one is likely under layers of needles and leaves. So, then yes that photo is of the general area that I believe him to be in.

Vernah Houts
I have fixed her first name according to your records. She's buried in section CS (which I believe is Ceder) Lot 1 Grave 63. I personally photographed all visible headstones in this section. This leads me to believe that either her headstone is under the sod or she doesn't have one.

RE: Alvis Ball
I went and looked at the picture I had on my hard drive and double checked to make sure I was right or made a mistake. I was wrong so I do apologize and have changed it. Thanks you for pointing it out.

The stone that I took the picture of says 1908 on it and is why I have that for the date. I made a note at the bottom of the listing about the obit having one year and the stone having the other year. Until the stone is changed or someone submits a picture showing the numbers say the number you submitted I am sorry but the year will remain 1908.

Elias French
Thanks for updating his information for me. (And when I typed Herman instead of Hermon it was just a typo I accidentally made, and I pressed send right as I noticed it.) I am descended from Elias. Elias' death record is available from the state of New York since he died after 1881, when they started keeping records. If you're interested in a copy, here's the link for the information and form to fill out.

RE: Abdill family of Noble Co. IN
Apparently, he did know what he was doing because I still have the photos. I did add new photos horizonialy instead of vertically and I also sent in a correction of the spelling of Jamima last name. Please double check and make sure that I did it correctly. Thank you for being patient with me and my computer. Barb

Thank you for understanding. I took our computer in today to have Windows 7 put back on. I am not computer savvy either and I was really getting frustrated. My technician said I will probably lose the photos I had downloaded but at least I will be able to do my thing. Have a good day. Barb
