Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: Taking a long break from genealogy. Much needed.

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 afraid. 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.

Alot of obits and info on my memorials come from others. I do not claim the recognition. Some have asked to not to be mentioned.

Thank you for all the great work you've done! Your contributions and countless hours of research is so appreciated!

Want to thank you for the transfers. Sorry but I forgot a few others. And, I did make some more corrections that will be coming your way! Wanted to make as few as possible.

Sorry, have put all of the Genealogy things away and can't remember what I sent. Senior Moment!!!

I'll get the things back out after the New Year. Busy making Night Gowns, Sleeping Shorts and other gifts for the daughters and grandchildren. Next comes getting Christmas Eve Supper and goodies.

Merry Christmas/Happy New Year!

where did you get the name?

RE: David Hate/Hale
Hi Paula,

All his service records in the Soldiers & Sailors System, as well as Graves Registration, only show him listed as David Hate. There is no evidence of the last name of Hale, even under an alternate name.

BTW, it looks like you have 2 entries for David in the Constantine cemetery.

Merry Christmas!

William S. Wert
I'm the great granddaughter of William S. Wert, Memorial #26801269. There happen to be two memorial for him. Yours and Memorial #49823709 where he is actually buried in Ft. Myers Florida. He is not buried in Greenwood Cemetery even though the tombstone shows his name. The marker was made before he died. I would love to have his wife Hayes Etta Wogoman Wert transferred to me if this is not your family. Thank you for your attention.

I'd would also be willing to take all of the Reiffs that you have in Constantine Twp. Cem.:


This is my grandma's family. Her maiden name was Reiff.
