Bio and Links
Bio Photo ------------------------------------------------
PERSONAL INFO: Born & raised in New Jersey and have been living in Indiana since married in 1976. Have 2 adult children, one is married. Currently have family & relatives (including in-law's family) in IN, NJ, NY (Staten Island), GA, NV, SC, TX, FL, KY, CA, NH, Alaska, Mich.
Have ANCESTRY.COM trees for my husb's Warrick County families of SCHAUSS & TRAUTVETTER which includes LIBBERT, CASTLE, INGRAM, ANGEL, SPLITTORF for ex. And trees for my NJ family for EMMONS (biological), SWAN/FREEMAN (FREIERMUTH) (adoptive), & HERBERT (in-laws of Swan).
Majority of ancestors for families are from: Germany & England. A branch of the Emmons family goes back to Ireland.
MY GRAVE STONE PICTURES ARE DONATIONS TO THE WEB SITE. Please put Source for anyone's pic that is copied from findagrave - "Pic Source:". We should add the member name & #. I'm working on adding member info more often.
Also have provided copies of my pics for member Lynn's Spencer County Cem Project on GenWeb.
Pictures Taken of all stones &/or ck'd if mem pgs had a pic, Updated Records if needed:

-- Spencer County, IN
WRIGHT (Huff Twp, not Maxwell)
OAK HILL - old sec.
--- Warrick County
ANGEL (Angel Mounds)
BELL (African American)
ZOAR WARRICK (Trautvetter family stones)
On occ.:
--- Warrick County:
St JOHN THE BAPTIST - Mausoleum outside
--- Vanderburgh County -
PARK LAWN (on going project)
MAUSOLEUMS: Patrician & Georgian Chapels (inside & outside) & 3 bldgs (have outside only).

NOTE: PARK LAWN - Info on cem. pg has finally been deleted. They do NOT charge for looking up plots & they don't monitor who takes pics. But need to be patient with the office if request a Plot. Records are in a Card File system on a dif. floor & not at front desk where it can be quickly accessed by a computer (files are not on).
Messages: Deleted as I do on occ. Wanted to make note that I do take messages. And I apprec. all the kind words & enjoy the family info sent.
Updated Camera Repair: 2/2015. Camera is back & working great.
2/2/2015 My wish is that people who copy pic's to would put a source - even if it's just "". I don't need written permission since it's posted that my pics are for public use (unless it's obvious they are of my or my husb's family). But need to know findagrave/copyright rules: "Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo."
This also applies to obits & pics with obits. We think if something is public we should be able to post it also. The "catch" is "copyright laws" & "Privacy". We are not to post names of living in obits or copy the obit pic. Did you know that we have to ask permission to post names of living & not allowed to post names of minors per findagrave?

I have added the location of the grave to the memorial.
I am requesting that you remove your pic from my family's memorial.

Nathan Askins was my paternal grandmother's brother. I haven't been down to the cemetery
to take a photo of his marker. I would like
to have it transferred to me. I have more
info on him and his spouses and children.
