Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Regarding Jason Crandall
Hi, I'm Jason Crandall's daughter and I noticed that you're basically tracking all the Crandall's down. My family history doesn't include the south, our roots are more eastcoast. I'd appreciate it if you removed my dad's profile.

RE: Albert Walts
Hi Linda,

Is the cemetery survey you have in digital format? Can you share it with me? I am interested in who may be in the cemetery but not on find a grave that I have been looking for who may be in Wolfe cemetery. I am also curious about the recent additions you made of Mary Walts 1837-1842 & John H. B. Walts 1839-1840 as children of John Walts & Mary Burger. The John HB Walts conflicts with timing as my 3rd great grandfather James Henry Walts was born 5 months after John H. B. Walts, which is kind of impossible :-) I requested a photo of these stones to see if there was more detail inscribed on them. But if you can share the cemetery transcription I would be grateful as it may put some of my curiosity to rest. my email is

thanks, Erin

I have removed my memorial for Leo.
I also added my photo to your memorial.
I submitted an edit to link Leo to his parents on your memorial.
Thanks for letting me know about the duplicate.

Bruce E Crandall Sr./Jr. Paxton Illinois - correction, I believe
Hello, I am working on my grantfather's sister: Emma Alberta Gibson (nee Shirley). She died at age 21 in Champaign County, Illinois and had 2 children. Daughter Edith Alberta Gibson married Bruce E Crandall in 1946 in Paxton, Ford County, Illinois and had 7 children, including Bruce E Jr. I just found a note you added to Bruce E Crandall Jr. citing mom's maiden name as Smith. Boy, after 2 years of looking for my dad's first cousin, Edith Alberta -- I am so happy to find your notes and the other volunteers' Memorials.
But you list mother as Edith A Smith. She was born Gibson - her mother Emma is our grandfather's sister, died when she was just a toddler.
Edith A died in 1995 with a new last name of Legan. She is buried in the same cemetery as Bruce E. Crandall Sr (Del Ray).
I have not yet sorted out how she got the name Legan. But I must suspect a divorce, since Bruce E outlived her by 7 years!
Do you have further info on her? I will run out the next cool day and take photos to put on the Find A Grave website and my Ancestry files, they are only less than 1 hour away. Love to connect, if you have anything to help put my grandfather's sister and her 2 children back on the map! Edith Alberta Gibson and brother Donald Frank Gibson.

Just to say Hello!
So hope your doing well. My husband and I just completed photographing Walnut Ridge's West Side of the cemetery. I have about 1200 photos to post and add to that cemetery. I'm not sure if I will do the East Side. Hopefully my age and my husband will allow me to start it next year. I see that has acquired Find A Grave. All our hard work has made the previous owners millions. I pray that this site remains free. I have membership to Ancestry but what a price you have to pay. I just wanted to say HI! as I just done a photo request for one of your obits. God bless and take care.

Agan research
I see you have a lot of research on the Agan Surname, and a lot of it seems to overlap my own work. Would you be intersted in some collaberation?
