Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am Cindy Elschide. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancester's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.
My husband & I have been known to center a vacation around cemeteries, libraries and courthouses. With visits with family and a little bit of site seeing thrown in.
My father's line includes Brooks & Haybron(southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire England and Snows from East Riding Yorkshire England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
My husband's line includes Peter Kappis/Cavis a Germany Mercenary in the Revolutionary War; Peter's son who was the Engineer for the John Bull Train which currently sits in the Smithsonian in Washington DC; Ehlschides from Germany; His grandmother Helen Robertson was born in Scotland (her grandfather died while building the Firth of Forth Bridge) and his grandfather (Gerald McCann)was descended from Irish (Boyle and Corbett)who fled the potato famine to come to Canada.
I had visited the Find a Grave site before but just recently realised that I should have been adding to it--a long time ago! I find it has brought great enjoyment to me to share the photos I take with everyone on the web in hopes that they help others.

RE: Antoine Joseph Fronville
I'm not related to the Fronvilles. I am a French-Canadian and Belgian genealogist who lives in Iroquois County. The "files" you mention is actually part of a manuscript which will be included in Pioneer Profiles, Vol. II, I'm currently 300 pages into this volume and trying to finish it up.

Antoine Joseph Fronville
Cindy - I have transferred my memorial for Antoine Joseph Fronville over to you. Please note dates in your memorial and mine do not always match. I am including Fronville family in my series Pioneer Profiles, Vol. II, along with several other Belgian families. I have 1,388 in my Fronville database going back to Henri Joseph Fronville, born 1715 in Boneffe, Province Namur, Belgium. Norma Meier

RE: W.P. Sallee in Marietta National Cemetery
Hi Cindy,
I would request a transfer of Joel's memorial using the SAC button and use the findagrave page to memorialize him.

I added the link and the information. Rockcreek is a township and I assume there is not city of that name in Indiana as it was not in the dropdown menu. I added the information in the bio. area. Thank you for sending it.

Sorry, I don't know if this is Algernon's son or not. I tried to find some records that would connect them, but nothing showed up.
