Started doing my local cemetery and after finding several Civil War vets I thought it would be interesting to look for Revolution and Civil War burials in Dearborn Co. Indiana. That in turn has turned into finding pioneer and forgotten burial grounds in my area also. Will transfer most memorials unless they are my ancestors. Corrections are appreciated, nasty grams are not.|
If anyone knows of a Civil War burial, [or Revolutionary War] vet in Dearborn County IN. that I have missed please let me know.
If you want to use photos I have taken ok, just give me credit.
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

I have ancestors that are buried in the same cemetery. I don't have any info for Ira Tinker. He was listed in the cemetery records for the cemetery. I posted him because I thought everyone should have a memorial.

Thank you for your reply. Also thank you for the memorial you created for Tavner Cheek in Dearborn County. In addition to his being the brother of Nicholas Cheek (as you mentioned), he is also the brother of Nancy Cheek Green, my 4x-great grandmother.

I see that you have photographed the entrance to Blasdel Cemetery. Do you know anything about an old cemetery, the Woolery Family Cemetery, that is also in Washington Township, Ripley County? It has just a few graves and was located on a farm owned by a Clyde Woolery. I have ancestors buried there and would like to create memorials for them, but I have no idea of its location.
|J McLefresh||Bovard Cemetery|
Do you know anyone that can help me with records at Bovard Cemetery.
I have found a story in The Recorder, June 17, 1887 stating that Dr. Martin McLefresh died and will be buried in the Bovard Cemetery.
He was a Corpsman in the Civil War and later became a Doctor.
At the time of his death he was living in Milton, Ohio County.

You created a page for my gr-gr-grandfather, John Lorenz Buchta (Puchta), memorial #34542259. His son, Leonard is also buried in River View Cemetery and has a Find A Grave page (memorial #14893467). Would you be willing to transfer ownership of John's memorial to me or else to create a family link to Leonard's page.
As best I know, the 'correct' spelling of the surname is Puchta or at least that is the spelling that was handed down to my generation.
|Beach Mama||RE: Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening|
Ok, I'm new to Find A Grave so I'm not sure really how it works, but you took photos at St. John's correct? How did you know to attach Dorothea Maria Bierman Wilkening to St. John's? The death date is identical and this has to be the same person, I have no records showing another Bierman married to a Wilkening. Thanks for your help!
|Beach Mama||Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening|
Hello, this probably my relative but according to an autobiography written by her son, she was buried with her husband and a granddaughter in Concord Cemetery. I'm wondering why she is attached to St. Johns? Do you have a photo of the marker? There is a shared marker photo for her and her husband in the listings for Concord. This is very confusing!
Thanks for your help!

I searched for my great uncle, Louis Frederick Ott, and didn't find him. I created a new entry numbered 158113144. I just discovered that you had him listed as Lewis F. Ott 47235540. Do you know how to merge or delete people? I would be happy to take possession of his record if you like. Also, if you happen to be in Union M.E. Church Cemetery in the future could you please take a photo of his grave? The rest of the family was from, and stayed in, Louisville, KY. After his wife died, Bud just kind of wandered away and no one in the family knew what happened to him until I found his death while doing genealogy.
