Bio and Links
Bio Photo Falls Cemetery is privately owned and was platted in 1861. It has expanded and grown to 67 acres situated on a beautiful, rolling hills landscape. Hundreds of pioneer and founding family members are interred, including those from the Hanna Cemetery relocated in 1907. Honored interred veterans include over 330 from the Civil War, plus hundreds from the War of 1812, Mexican-American and Spanish-American Wars, World Wars I and II, Korean conflict, Viet Nam and subsequent wars.

The Friends of Falls Cemetery was organized in August 2009 consisting of Wabash area residents who are largely descendants of the 13,000+ souls interred. It was officially sanctioned and its work approved and encouraged by the Wabash Cemetery Society, Inc. board of directors on November 17, 2009.

It is our goal to accurately and respectfully document the lives and relationships of those interred in Falls Cemetery. We further strive to present them in the best possible manner with biographies, histories and obituaries whenever possible, and will include plot locations and attractive tombstone photography. Additions and corrections to these memorials are welcome as are new participants in our group. Upon request, we will gladly transfer memorials to family members, and will give consideration to out-of-guideline relationships. Existing FindAGrave memorials may be (temporarily) transferred to us for research and photography.

SSAWV Inquiry
Can you confirm or deny that Spanish American War veteran George F. Brady is the veteran by that name who was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions aboard the torpedo boat Winslow on 11 May 1898? Thank you.

Everett Porter's family
Am hoping you will make the family links for Everett. I've listed the memorial numbers for his mother & his 2 half brothers. The obit has his mother's name backwards. She married the Porter prior to marrying Isaac Jackson. Solesta is my gr-gr-aunt. Thanks!!!!

RE: Harry & Anna Marie Lehman
When I find memorials that you "manage" there is no other name associated, just the group name Friends of Falls Cemetery. You suggested that I contact the person who actually manages the memorial to ask for transfer - can you direct me to where I would find that information since all it shows is the group name? Thank you! :)

I apologize, it appeared that you were the manager of the memorials. Just starting to manage some memorials, so fairly new to it, thank you for the information!

Could I possibly have Harry Joseph and Anna Marie Lehman to manage please? They are my Great Grandparents and I was very close with them growing up. Thank you!

Ezekiel Reed

Dear Friends of Falls Cemetery,

I am researching Ezekiel Reed, my second Great Grandfather, who is buried in Reed Cemetery in Wabash County. In Find A Grave, I see that your cemetery association has included a photo or sketch of him. I have attached this to my family tree and would like to know its source, ie. where did you obtain it? If from a family member, how can I contact that person to collaborate further? If from a book, I would like to know the title and publication information so that I can document it properly.

I appreciate any help you can offer. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Debbie Reed Hutchison

RE: Alexander Hess
Thank you for your reply. I do know that the Hipskind's also lived in the house at 560 N Wabash. However, researching the home with the county land records/deeds it list the Hess's as owners purchasing the home on 2/3/1900 from Howard and Alice Atkinson. The Hipskind's purchased the home March, 4, 1956 from Thomas and Dorothy Winklejohn. I also found the Hess's listed at this address in the census. I am familiar with the house you posted as Richard Ford lived there we purchased 560 from Mr Ford, thus the research. Is it possible that the Hess's owned the property but did not live here? But then why would it be listed as their residence in the census?

The house you have posted for Alexander Hess is incorrect, it is actually the house two doors down 560 N Wabash Street.
