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.

Nicholas Crandall
My Nicholas Crandall was cousin by marriage. He and his wife Anner [sic] are buried with others in Woodland Cemetery, Xenia, Greene County Ohio. He was a carpenter and house builder. He was born in Stonington,CT to Beriah and Mary Clarke. His wife Anner Brown was sister of my great-grandmother Louisa Brown Forbes. John Forbes Swenson

Thanks. I'm waiting for link to be added for Emma Woodyard as well from another person.

I got into this tracking down the location of the original Lofton cabin which was moved at some point to the Woodyard farm (they were Lofton in-laws) on W. Fredericksburg Road. It is now restored belongs to Woodyard descendants.

I wish I could figure out when and why it was moved. You can see its original outlines near the Simeon Lofton graveyard.

Crandalls in Walnut Ridge Cemetery
Hello, Linda:

I found your Crandall ancestors in Walnut Ridge. My great-grandmother Louisa Brown Forbes is buried there with her husband Andrew Forbes. Louisa's sister Anner married Nicholas Crandall, who is also buried there. My maternal grandfather John C Forbes [1862-1927] probably arranged for burial of his family members. Nicholas was son of Beriah. They are all in the Elder John Crandall book. John C Forbes was co-administrator of the estates of Alanson Reynolds Crandall and Frances Crandall Hart. I have a copy of the extensive probate court file from Greene County, Ohio from 1925 onward. what would you like to know?

Dikes - Addaline, Charles, Homer and Mildred
I just wanted to thank you for posting the pictures of their headstones - I didn't have most of the dates yet! Addaline and Charles were my great-great grandparents on my father's side. The picture of Addaline actually came from my Ancestry tree somehow. I have it public so people can use my info, but with the disclaimer that it's a work in progress! On the back of the photo (it's of Addaline next to Homer's grave), it says "my mother and my little brother tombstone". If your family overlaps with mine, I'd love to hear from you. Otherwise, thank you again! ~Lori

Dr. William Ross, Monroe County, Iowa
I note there are several Dr. William Ross' listed on find a grave for the Woodlawn Cemetery in Lovilla, Iowa. Yours, however, was not the first and you need to add your information to the first one, not create a new find a grave. Your records were added in November of 2014; The record I added to was first created in December 2010. The infant Ross Photo I deleted.

RE: John Survis - Woodlawn
The photo of the tombstone is in the right place in the cemetery, matching the sexton's record. Obviously it was not WWI, corrected that. Any idea why stone would say Co. A? Units combined at some time? The obit correlates to other records for him, as to place and time of death & family members. Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Emma (Hanger) Atz
I was wondering what my message asked of you.... As not seeing that or else looking at wrong place. Am just seeing answers.
Just getting back with you on this. Question probably trying to get some sort of documentation as to Jane's parents?
Yes, a generation missing.
Nancy Emma Hanger was Jane (Keller) Hanger's grand daughter.
Emma's parents were Frederick and Elizabeth Jane (Totten) Hanger.

Paul Grube
You have Paul Grube at the Pleasant View Baptist Cemetery near New Washington, IN. The problems are 1) there is no cemetery at the Pleasant View Baptist Church near New Washington and 2) his tombstone and burial is actually at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery in Wood Twp., Clark Co., IN near Borden. See Find A Grave Memorial# 144705546 3) please remove you entry as there is no cemetery at the Baptist Church. Again thanks for all your hard work.
