Bio and Links
Bio Photo My dad, Harold D. Bryarly, Jr. past in 1996 of cancer. I will never forget the look on my dad's face when I told him his brain tumor was not operable. It broke my heart.

My dad's friend, Steve Stone had been sick for a few years and was afraid to die. If I remember correctly, he had come close to deaths door a few times. He was by my dad's side when he took his last breath. I believe he needed to see that he didn't have to be afriad. He passed 6 months later.

Before my dad's passing, my family never really said I love you or hugged much. We do now. Don't be so sure that someone knows you care or love them, tell them, because one day you or them will be gone. I'm no longer afraid to say I love you. I want my friends and family to know without a doubt.

I began serious searching my family tree shortly after my dad passed. I've met many distant cousins and shared loads of info. It has been awesome. I've helped people with their trees. I'm not a professional genealogist. I find all my info on free sites or libraries. I will help anyone with their tree. I may not be able to give them any new info, but I sure will try.

My motto: "Not everything has to cost something."

I don't take money or material things for the help I provide. I only ask that they pass the kindness around.

I no longer live in LaGrange, IN, so work with memorials is strictly by corrections/additions. Sorry.

RE: Ida Hollinger
Hi Paula,

I really appreciate your trying to find the grave stone for my great grandmother, Ida Hollinger. I do have a photo of her husband's gravestone in Constantine and was hoping against hope she would have been buried near him. She'd died young, from TB; I now wonder if she'd been buried with her family rather than that of her husband.

Thanks again,
Chuck Ivins

Frederick Schellhous
Oh, I see the same thing has happened with Frederick as well. Could you correct the spelling of his last name in the posted entry so that he along with his sister Jane pops up when people do a SchellHous search? Thank you!

Entry for Jane E Schellhous Johnson
Paula, thank you so much for posting the clear pictures of this tombstone. In the posted entry her maiden name SCHELLHOUS has the "h" left out so it reads SCHELLOUS instead. I wonder if you could make this small correction so that the name comes up as it should be when people search? Thank you!

RE: John Winney
We are pretty sure John Winney died of Malaria in 1837 at his home near White Pigeon. Reports are are, there was not enough healthy people to bury the dead. Johns probate is on file in White Pigeon but it is not readable any longer.
Elizabeth is named first as the Admin but a short time later their oldest son William Winney is named. Our best guess is Elizabeth may have died soon after John and they are most likey buried on their farm a little ways South East of White Pigeon in unmarked graves.
John and Elizabeth are my 3rd Great Grandparents.

RE: Henry Berger/Burger
Thank you very much for Henry's headstone photo and the DOD correction. This is the same Henry.
I hope someday in the same area to find headstones for John and Elizabeth (Crounse) Winney but most likely their graves were never marked.
Thanks again

Malone Family of Lagrange
Hello Paula - Thank you for your work on the graves in Lagrange. You have quite a bit of information on the Malone family. I'm wondering if you descend from the Malones and would like to share information. You have Richard Malone, d 1892 and buried in Greenwood Cemetery. He was a brother to my ancestor, Elias Malone Jr who went to Daviess County, Indiana in the 1850's from Tuscarawas/Wayne County Ohio area. My Elias also had a son, Jacob, who went to the Lagrange area, like the above Richard. If you are not a part of this family, can you put me in contact with someone who is from this family? I have 35 years of research to share and will happy to do so.
I experienced the death of my father in a very similar situation as you. It's tough! I only live an hour away from Lagrange in Michigan, so would love to be in contact with someone from that area about the Malones. Thank you.
