Bio and Links
While I had used Findagrave for several years, I finally became a member while working on a church history project. Later, I added memorials for my family, and then, I started photographing and adding entire cemeteries. My main interests are my family cemeteries and African-American cemeteries. I mostly photograph during the summer and add memorials during the winter. Several cemeteries are ready to be added when time permits.

I try to take care of the many suggestions that come in as soon as possible. However, there are now so many of you finding your relatives and wanting more information added to their memorials, that I can't get it all finished while on my work break. I do not want to take time out from entering more memorials, so I will no longer be adding places of birth and death unless they are written in such a way that I can just copy and paste them into the bio section. The work computer is slow and using the drop down menus takes a lot of time, especially when you forget to send the county name.

Fairview Cemetery in New Albany, IN, has been completely photographed. Most plats are already finished being added. There are just a few still in the process. Cemeteries that have been completely photographed (except for new burials) and added are:

Clark Co., IN
Sellersburg

Floyd Co., IN
Atkins
Bailey
Dawson
Finley or Findley
Freedomland
Grant Line United Methodist Church
Holy Trinity (rear half only)
Leyden
Ross
Saint Mary Catholic, New Albany
Stinson
Walker

Lincoln Co., KY
Gruenheim

Charlotte Whalen transfer please
Would you please transfer Memorial 63281316 to me ? This is my great great grandmother. According to the 1900 census, she stated she was born Jun 1815 in SC.

Her obit reads:

At Ripe Old Age
Mrs. Charlotte Whalen ninety-five years of age and one of the oldest residents of the city, died yesterday afternoon at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Greenaway, 1118 Shelby street. Her death was due to the infirmities of advanced age.

Mrs. Whalen was a native of South Carolina, but had lived in this city for three quarters of a century. Besides Mrs. Greenaway, she is survived by two sons, James Whalen, of Monroe City, Ind., and John Whalen, who lives in Missouri. She was the widow of Edward Whalen.

Mrs. Charlotte Whalen, widow of Edward Whalen, died last Friday afternoon as the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Greenaway, 1118 Shelby street, of the infirmities of old age. She was ninety-five years old and was a native of South Carolina. She leaves three children, Mrs. Greenaway, James Whalen, of Monroe City, Ind., and John Whalen, who lives in the west. She was a member of the Christian church. The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from the residence and the body was taken to Sellersburg for burial.

The funeral of Mrs. Charlotte Whalen took place yesterday afternoon from the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Greenaway, 1118 Shelby street, and the body was taken to Sellersburg for burial.


John William Whalen is my great grandfather and is buried in Wayne County, IL at Farnsworth Cemetery along with his wife Mary Susan Maulding. I have photographed both of their gravestones (and all other gravestones in that cemetery).

2nd request
Greeting Douse - I contacted you in December regarding an incorrect entry.
I am a first cousin of Goldie "Peggy" Evelyn Reed and she has a Find A Grave entry. You show her spouse as Forrest Elwood Goldman (memorial # 61780738) and that is incorrect.
Her spouse was Gerald Alexander Goldman, born December 18, 1918, died June 16, 2013.
I am sure that he is buried next to her in the Sellersburg, IN cemetery. Would you please make this correction?
If I can offer any information that you need, don't hesitate to let me know.
Thank you kindly.

Thank you
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I found my great grandmother Ruth J Adams Morgan at the Sellersburg Cemetery. I could only hope someone posted her as I did a search of all the cemeteries in Clark County. I'm hoping to travel to Sellersburg and take a picture of her grave soon!

W. W. Redens #92807158
Sorry--you have the grave labeled W. W. Redens, but there is no listing for a grave under that name in the cemetery. There is a listing for A. W. Redins with similar information (at least as to death) but the cemetery records do not show a stone location and one could not be found. Thank you. I would like a copy of the photo if at all possible under the circumstances so that I might photoshop it. Thank you again.
