Bio and Links
Bio Photo My research is mainly in Shine, Hall, McCay, Straley, Paynter, Reed, Collins, Barnett, Ballinger, Wolf, Phillips, Stafford family lines. Some of these lines start in Germany, Scotland- Ireland, and England. Some of the lines come to the US right after Jamestown from England, the ones from Ireland-Scotland come around 1700. The Germans come around 1740 and 1803. Many fought for their independence or religious freedoms in the USA or there Mother County.

Hi Sherry! I just had to send a note lol...My grandson Jalen and I drove past Perkinsville on the way to Noblesville two days ago...I noticed the new marker out by the road and told him we need to stop and take a picture on the way home...we came back a different way and so had not done it...I had a SAC from someone this morning to update a memorial there and here is your photo of the marker lol!!! You were there the same day I'm guessing as that's the date on your photo...Great Minds ;-)

Lorinda Parks
Sherry, I saw you left a message for Dave Jernigan in regards to Lorinda Parks, and I'm not sure if you received a response from him. It was over 3 years ago, so you may not remember off the top of your head (I just recently logged back in after a long absence). Lorinda is my 3rd great grandmother, and the picture of her headstone is my own. You had asked about her parents since you had different parents listed. My research shows her parents are William Bole 1800-1887 and Lorinda Rood 1809-?. Lorinda was born on July 20, 1834 in Athens County OH. By 1850, the family had moved to Van Buren Township in Grant Co IN, and this is where she married Eli Parks on Feb 2, 1854.

Hope this helps.

Frances White memorial photo
Hi Sherry! I'm sending this to ask you to purty please take the first photo you added to this memorial off Frances' page. The memorial number is 53682830...only reason I'm asking is that this one photo is not for Frances....the family plot photo is good but this one is for Sydna White. thanks so much for the great work you did at Hamilton Cemetery!

Rachel wife of Samuel Jones
Thanks for picture #58878494. It is one of the few documenta we have for her children that were born in the 1850's since she died prior to the 1860 census. We have problems verifying info but I will not explain the info that led us to this grave or the one that is beside her-#42038174 Rachel wife of Abigah Rice. We believe this is Rachel Jones mother but would like to know who added the info Jones Rice family plot or if this came from records held by the cemetery? How do you contact the cemetery to inquire about records. By the way is for Pioneer Cemeteries and their stories Madison County, In-I saw the reference in a message and it is not a cemetery but a website. Also picture of Rachel wife of Abigah Rice and records for Rachel listed in the Gilmore cemetery site.
In case you are ever curious Rachel the wife of abijah you surely saw beside Rchel wife of Samuel Jones-#46102344 is a grave for Abigah Rice however I believe the date is not right for his death-he and Rachel had children after 1811! His record is also at the site i listed in the Broadbent, Hartman, Hartwell Hill Farm. Now if families read the public emails the info is there.
Thanks again,

Hi Sherry,

Thank you so much for looking for Carry F. Fenstermaker's headstone. Even though it wasn't found your efforts are greatly appreciated. JMartin.

RE: John W and Hattie Barnett Green
Yes I think we should leave John as a Barnett as his marker indicates. Just struck me as odd. John is buried between Elizabeth E Barnett and his Mother Hattie Green.
My wife and I took on the project of updating the records of Hop and photographing all the markers that are left and putting them on Find A Grave. I think we have it complete as to the markers. There are several spaces and missing stones.
I hadn't heard of the Salem H S record. (Historical Society.. I was thinking of High School.) Can you provide me a copy of it? Is it digital? I have a complete file for Hop on pdf if you are interested. That may be what the Society sent you as I gave them a copy, but add to mine now and then.

RE: John W and Hattie Barnett Green
Sherry do you know why John W. was reasoned to be Barnett. on his marker and doesn't have the name Green? Stranger thing have happened but just wanted to raise this point. Jr.
