|Bio and Links|
Although we currently live in Columbus, Ohio, my husband and I grew up in northwestern Indiana. My mother's parents emigrated from Croatia in the early 1900s, and my father's family was rooted in Kentucky. He grew up in Georgetown, SC, and Indianapolis, Ind. After my mother's death, I found some old family photographs and been trying to put names and stories to the faces ever since. My husband was adopted, has no interest in opening closed doors, and is somewhat bewildered by all this, but his knowledge of American history has been very helpful to me. Otherwise, we both enjoy gardening, music, and reading.|

Your McIntire family is in a very beautiful cemetery on the banks of the Ohio River across from Madison. Back in the 60s, my sister and I used to go there and view the unlimited hydroplanes racing on the Ohio River below. That is until it got to be too popular and some people didn't have respect for the graves and also the trees on the hillside got too tall to be able to go beyond the graves and still see the river. Also, when Some Came Running was filmed in Madison (1958 Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Shirley McClain), the ending was shot at Moffett with the big angel (Durand monument) and a view of the Ohio River in the distance. That's how my sister and I found the cemetery - went looking for that angel and the view of the river that we knew had to be on the hill above Milton. Ah, the days of my youth!

Hi there, I transferred your in-laws over to you. Carole
Thanks for you info. The info I posted about her being the Wife of William Goins, is what is on the stone. It was transcribed when the survey was done. I wasn't able to find the stone when I was there a couple of weeks ago (too overgrown with thorn bushes.) Could Paschal have been her first husband?

You are right as to who this is. His stone is a military stone with just his service listed. By checking that, he matches up with the info you sent. I'll add the dates. Thank you for contacting me, I hadn't yet looked in to adding info for him & this makes it easier!
|Tina||RE: Photo Credit|
I agree with you that a general thanks will suffice if a volunteer has granted permission to use their photos. I changed my page a bit, although it wasn't my intention, I did make it sound like individual volunteers should be recognized. Thanks for the note, bringing it to my attention. Tina

|Forget Me Not||RE: Mary Stuart Bowser|
Mary is a beautiful woman. Love the pictures.
Even though the picture is clear I'm not happy with it. The sun was at the wrong angle and my shadow would have been in the picture if it were taken head on. Next time I'm in the area I'll retake the photo. Have a nice weekend.
Thanks for the additional info about Cecelia. It is now part of her memorial. If you are related to her, I would gladly transfer her page to you. My info came from her obit. I have not been to the cemetery, so I do not know if she and/or Stanley have a marker.

|Bunnygirl||RE: Ella McIntire Nowlin|
You're welcome. Denny copied the info from the Trimble Co. Cemetery book, so it was an honest mistake. I'm sure he'll fix it for you. Bev

Dear DaylillyFan, In response to your request about data on Enoch Nowling, I have found the following in the Dearborn County Cemetery Records, Volume A, Page 143 by Milton A. Masing:
Enoch B. Nowlin was born in Miller Township, Dearborn County, Indiana on April 15, 1832. He died in Miller Township on June 17, 1900. He was a son of Jeremiah & Parmelia Nowlin. He is buried in Section F, Lot (.
Hope this helps with your research,

You are very welcome. I also took pics of the stones near hers which were also Campbells. They are:
Joseph H. & Mary J.
and Joseph Morris which sounds like it may have been her husband. Let me know if you want any of these.
