Bio and Links
I became fascinated with Vermillion County many years ago. My people settled there in 1839. They travel in groups and came from Caledonia County, VT. I have visited the area 3 times. I started borrowing the microfilm with the old newspaper Hoosier State to find information on my various families. It started in 1868. I then decided to abstract information on all the families to help others with their research. I have completed books through 1895 and plan on continuing through 1900. I am trying to add as many obits to entries on Find a Grave as I can. I have various lists for many of the cemeteries in the area. My people settled in Helt Township which includes many cemeteries that I don't have complete lists for. I also abstracted the Wills through 1927. I will check for you if you send me the name. I wish I lived closer, but I live just north of San Francisco.

I just copied a film on early New Jersey Cemetery readings. I am in the process of updating and adding to Find a Grave.

William McAllister.
Thanks for letting me know I had him in the wrong cemetery. I made the correction and linked him to his parents. He is a cousin to my in my family tree.

RE: Underwood
Well done. Every other 10th memorial I open has an obit by you, thank you for that, there is so much information stored away in obituaries as well as newspaper articles. Thank you Mrs Carolyn.

Samuel Davis #107385122

When looking at the memorial page for Samuel Davis, I noticed the biography was not referring to the correct person. The headstone and grave information list him as dying in 1894, while the biography lists him as dying in 1864. The biography is incorrect. Could you please remove the current biography for Samuel Davis #107385122. Thanks!
