Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Anderson, Indiana and my mother grew up in Lapel. I have been working on the Hersberger and Stottlemyer lines. I also have great-grandparents who were Commons, Moore, Norris, Stiner, Gaver, Huntzinger, Anderson in the Lapel area. Many came from Frederick County, Maryland and I've done some research there. Through my father's side I am a member of the Indiana Society of Civil War Families. My great-grandfather fought with the 54th Indiana at Vicksburg and his only two brothers were killed in the Civil War. The more research I do, the more Civil War connections I have found although only the one direct ancestor.

I live in Oregon now so all of my research is from a long distance.

Ira Smithson

I checked and found Drummond and all the Smithson families are buried in Union Cemetery near windsor, So I moved the memorial over to that cemetery.

I have taken pictures of the whole cemetery, Old and New parts and found no marker for him but plenty of other Smithson family.

Have a great day

I was like Oh no what happened now. And on my side. It shows no change. And then only the note about the parents. Glad it has been taken care of.

I am not sure what you mean by declining for her spouse. He is linked. The decline was the parents. I thought we had that all fixed. Because she is also linked to her parents now????? Please let me know. You are referring to
Memorial# 129484433

RE: Obit for Bernard and Mae
All three kids are linked to their parents now. I avoided declining the edits. But at the same time I didn't want them just sitting there either. So I checked all cemetery records. So hopefully the obituaries are correct. Crossing my fingers on that one.

RE: Memorial# 129482871
I seen the obituary. I try to add the plot numbers for the Burials in the cemeteries in Hamilton county and Marion County. SO hopefully if someone wants a headstone we can get the information for them. Now I am going back to the other kids and getting them added.

Thank you!! Very much. I just try to very as much as possible. and her parents are not in the cemetery records. Let me add her parents and the other siblings. A suggestion might be to post her parents obituaries. Thanks again for letting me know.

With regards to Memorial# 129482871 you have listed her parents as

Bernard Leslie Hersberger
(1897 - 1964)

Merium Mae Michael Hersberger
(1899 - 1979)

You have placed them as new memorials in
Oaklawn Memorial Gardens - in Hamilton County, Indiana

There are no records that show her parents are burried in the Oaklawn Cemetery. There are several people that take photos in the cemetery and there are not records that they exist in the cemetery. Please find out exactly where her parents are buried, and I'll be more than happy to link them. I do not mean to be rude or disrespectful. However, again there are no records that parents are burried in the same cemetery.

I have sent you an email with a link to the records. Hope it helps. I have checked against the memorial and it agrees. I know Don and he is a reliable researcher.

RE: Lutton photo
If a headstone is placed I'll be glad to photograph it if someone will make a request. When I return from time to time for more requests I'll keep an eye out for any changes.
