Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born & raised in NJ, Moved to Indiana when married 1976. 2 adult children, one married. LPN 1976 til 2004.
1st g'child (boy) was born the 1st wk of Jan. 2016. This has greatly reduced my time taking pics at cem's & working with records on findagrave. Only been taking pics at Maple Grove when I'm there changing family flowers. Updated 4/10/2016.
ANCESTRY.COM trees: SCHAUSS, TRAUTVETTER (includes: LIBBERT, CASTLE, INGRAM, ANGEL, SPLITTORF for ex. Both trees are linked by LIBBERT family), biological EMMONS (includes GREAVES), adoptive SWAN/FREEMAN (FREIERMUTH), in-law's family: HERBERT
MY GRAVE STONE PICTURES ARE DONATIONS TO THE WEB SITE. Please put Source for anyone's pic that is copied from findagrave. Ex: Photo Source: & can add mem pg # - SEE FINDAGRAVE Q & A's.

PORTRAITS - Request to not copy these pics. Can attach pics to ancestry trees using my pics from my trees - on This keeps the owner (me) attached to the pic.
Pic's taken at cem's below. Entire Cem's done
Also have provided copies of my pics for member Lynn's Spencer County Cem Project on GenWeb.
-- Spencer County, IN
WRIGHT (Huff Twp, not Maxwell)
--- Warrick County
ANGEL (Angel Mounds)
BELL (African American)
ZOAR WARRICK (Trautvetter family stones)
--- Vanderburgh County -
PARK LAWN - ongoing since 2013
Nov 2015: Cut back on amt of pics taken but cont. to get records from library & post or send edit req's for plots (sec. & row).
Messages: I appreciate & enjoy reading all the kind words. But I delete them on occ. So I want to let members know that I do accept messages.

"Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission."

"Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law."

Discovered another reason for not posting pics that we didn't take. Whenever an obit pic is added it records as "PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN" ON OUR PROFILE. So for the members who do this a lot, their "Photos taken" is showing way more pics than they actually took. Gives me another reason to not copy & post the portraits from the grave stones any more. The 1st reason is since members copy for their ancestry trees & don't add the source per findagrave copyright policy.
My (non family) pics of grave stones are posted for public use but NOT the family portraits. They can be added to your trees from my trees on Do NOT copy from findagrave. I've found on ancestry without source of pic. -- Thanks.

Clyde Ludwig Chester Rural
Thank you for the suggestion. I created Clyde's memorial based on the stone's inscription. The paper cemetery records that I have don't have his name in lot 197, but the others are. So I didn't guess which grave - he could be in grave 4, but he could also be in grave 1 with his wife Sarah. I'll check at the office next time I am there.

Donna I received your partial message...have searched the Durango Herald yet found nothing in reference to this man. I don't know what you were trying to tell me. Could you send a message and make it more clear what you want me to know?
Thanks, Shirley

my grandpa donald
Thank you so very much for contributing to this website

You found my grandpas resting place and I was finally able to pay my respects to him (I plan on visiting him soon, but this will do for now).

You allowed me to finally leave a personal message for him.
I was only 5 when he passed so this means the world to me.

I couldn't thank you more. You've helped me out so much.

Donna, after checking with other family members, I now know that there isn't a grave stone on Alan's burial site.
Thank you for all the work you do.

Alan Hemenway - photo request
Thank you for your response to my request. After checking with family, I believe Alan was buried in the plot next to his parents - Harold and Nadine Hemenway. This would be to the far right in the photo that was posted. I will check back with the cemetery office. Again thank you.
