Bio and Links
I have been studying the genealogy of our family for over 30 years. My mother-in-law got me seriously interested in genealogy by giving me the book "History of the Hershey Family" by Scott Funk Hershey. The book traced the history of the Hershey family. She is listed in the book and it followed her direct line, as well as others, back to the 1600's. In addition to Hershey, our family includes the Kellogg, Corrie, Johnson, Nickerson, Cheney, Rees, Poppen and Albrecht families to name only a few, some famous and a couple infamous. We are connected to a lot of families buried in the Wabash Presbyterian Church Cemetery, where my mother-in-law is interred along with her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Other family members direct and indirect are interred in cemeteries located in Crawford, Edwards, Lawrence, Richland and Wabash counties in Illinois as well as in South Dakota, New York, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio and other states and countries.

I am happy to transfer any memorials that are not a part of my family.

RE: Bridgeport/Shiloh Cemetery
I have checked and you do have some duplicates. I will send you an edit on each individual one, as I go through them.

Thank you for taking care of all of these!

Bridgeport/Shiloh Cemetery
Yes, Genea, I can see where anyone could be confused on this cemetery.

I have already made 7 trips there, 40 miles round trip, and photographed most of the cemetery.

Both of sides of the road have a Bridgeport Cemetery sign. Yes, the Shiloh church is there, but no sign calling any of it "Shiloh Cemetery".

I think local people call it Shiloh, just because of the church being there. And yes, I see it called Shiloh in local obits, making it confusing for ones who don't know the difference.

Did you go to the Bridgeport City Cemetery page on Find A Grave? It is explained there. In fact, if you will notice, Find A Grave has 2 Shiloh Cemeteries in Lawrence Co. One only has 3 burials listed in it.

Once I get all the tombstone photos added, then I will send to Find A Grave and ask them to combine them all into Bridgeport City Cemetery, and explain why the request.

Yes, I would appreciate any and all obits for my memorials. To me, that helps complete the memorials. Find A Grave states if we add obits, we need to give the source, also.

Again, thanks for your help!

RE: Mary A. Wortman

Mary is not in my family either, but I would be happy to manage her memorial for you. Thanks for the offer!

I will go ahead and send a request through the edit tab, and then you can decide. It's entirely up to you.

I love working on this site and spend many hours a day, doing so.

RE: Your brother's memorial
We must think alike. I tend to favor the military too.
Brothers Kim in the Army and Tim in the Navy, my sons went Marine and Coast Guard, a nephew went Marine, another nephew-West Point, dad-Navy, and ancestors in every conflict since King Phillips War. One of my Grandfathers, and some other family, were some of the first settlers killed by Indians in that one. The desire to stand up and fight for right must run in the blood.
Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

Richard and Nancy Hamler

I am certain I knew these people. I know they did not have children, but I thought they had an extended family. I may be able to upload a picture or two of Richard Hamler. He was a high school teacher at Southport and Tech a High Schools in Indianapolis. His wife was a homemaker, and I do not have a picture of her. I recently sold a small house they had built in I dianapolis. As a child, I often visited in that house that my parents eventually owned. I just think it is better to tell something about a person's life work, when possible. They had a farm of some sort in Illinois. Their practice was to shut down the Indianapolis home during summer school recess and live on the farm. Oil was discovered on the Illinois property after they retired. Do you know how to verify what I have written?
