Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries.

I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.

Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.

Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

Civil War Virtual Cemeteries
I noticed that in your research you had man virtual cemeteries of Indiana Civil War Veterans. I didn't know if it was only those you researched or others but if you are looking for others, my 3rd great-grandfather David Sechrist was in the 054th Indiana Regiment (Civil War) Company C - Find a grave # 10197396. They had his named spelled as Sechrest.

The Annie Dahme, Dahmes, Dahms
I wanted to thank you for finding the information you did on "Anna Annie Dahms", (memorial number 119267467). She was the unfortunate child that lost her life at the hands of her mother. I found the link that provided what happened to her, as well as contact information. I sent a request for update of child/parent link. Her mother was also an "Anna Dahms/Dahme/Dahmes, memorial number: 143426443.

Such a sad story, but again, thank you so much for your help to get the "record straight" on this family.

(I have, ofcourse, credited you as the source provider within my family tree and on findagrave.)

Blessings, Sylvia

Catherine Sarber
I am writing about Catherine Sarber - Find A Grave Memorial# 104572995. Her name in my records is spelled as Catherine as well as on the Find A Grave site, but her name on the headstone is spelled Catharine, with an A.
Is she a relative of yours? Do you have any information regarding this discrepancy?
She is my G-Grandmother and I am also looking for her family.
Respectfully, Judy85364

Augusta Ritter Firestine
Curious, do you know anything more about Augusta's family line? I'm trying to find our family's Augusta Ritter, daughter of Theresia Kunze and Joseph (Frank) Ritter. Is this the same Augusta Ritter? I know Theresa and her children were in Indiana in 1880.

RE: Mary A. Cuney
I've tried and every time I loaded it it went sideways. Happened with 4 or 5 of them.
