IMPORTANT NOTICE: FIND-A-GRAVE has just been purchased by Ancestry.com, which is a site with a hefty membership fee. I have contributed photos and information to this site out of love and joy, NOT for Ancestry's profit. I hereby announce that I claim copyright on ALL the photos I have contributed to this site, and you may ONLY duplicate them or use them on your site with my permission. I will be migrating to another site in the near future.
I have always loved old cemeteries, even as a kid. I find that they provide a profound sense of the eternal.
I love volunteering because of the blessing I received when Glenn Russell put a record of my nearly-lost ancestors, Patrick and Margaret Malone. Having those dates - with the name and date of their son John Malone, opened a floodgate of documents and links! (THANKS AGAIN, GLENN!!)
Recently I developed an interest in capturing stones with pictures of the deceased; I find these are a favorite target of vandals and we must save them while we can.
I live in Northern Indiana and can shoot pics in South Bend, Mishawaka, and nearby areas. Please feel free to use any of my photos. No need to credit me but please do credit Find a Grave.
Happy to transfer upon request anyone who is not in my ancestral line.
Interests: Barrett, Malone (New York, New England, Ireland and England)
Brabant (Quebec, New England, New York)
Webster, Foglesong, Baxter (Indiana)
Baxter, Bennet (Ohio)

Would you mind removing the photo of John Doyle's gravestone from this memorial. The photo is the gravestone of his son John Doyle, for whom I have added a memorial (173186934)
Please feel free to add the same photo to the son's memorial

|JM||RE: Achille Busschaert transfer|
Yes, all these Busschaerts are related. Thank you for the transfer of Achille's parents!
I appreciate all your find work for Find A Grave! Thanks for helping us all put the family puzzle together. I am especially saddened discovering how many of the Busschaerts died violently or in war. Achille's brother was a kind step-dad who raised my grandma. Maybe I can track down some Busschaert descendents in the process of researching these Belgian immigrants.

Thank you so much for answering my email . . . and so quickly. I am eagerly waiting to see what your husband has on his Foglesong ancestors! I have never looked up Foglesong records at the Cass County courthouse. Actually, it seems odd, but I have not done much research on any of my own families there, either. It's because my grandparents were alive and able to give me firsthand information on all of them. Also, because I didn't have time. All my sibling's families still live there and I have gone home on vacation almost every year, but I wanted to visit with the living rather than research the dead! My siblings and I were born on a farm about half a mile from the farm Aaron Yantis bought and which his sons inherited. I am the only sojourner and am planning on remedying that when I die. Quite a number of the graves in the Metea Baptist Cemetery are occupied by other Yantis descendants who moved away but had their remains taken back "home" to Indiana. My tombstone has been in place there for about 20 years. I guess I was pessimist! My sister had just bought herself a plot with six graves and only needed 3 of them so I asked if she would sell one to me. She said the whole plot only cost $30.00, so she guessed she could make it a gift . .. and she did. It is somehow comforting to know that one will be buried near people they love. Jacob set the president, I guess, when he asked that his body be taken from Egypt back to be buried next to his wife!

I am not sure you are descended from Daniel Fogelsong as it appears you have added to a great many graves (THANK YOU), but since you have pictures of the Foglesongs, it would seem you may be.
If you are, I have information about them going back to Germany in 1763 and will be happy to share. My maiden name was Yantis and I was born in Cass County, Indiana not far from where Daniel Fogelsong lived. One of my great-grandfather’s brothers—Jacob Yantis Jr.—is buried in the Zion Cemetery where Daniel is buried.
My great-great-grandfather was Jacob Yantis, Sr. who was born in Germany in 1742. His mother was Anna Apollonia Vogelgesong. One of Jacob's sons was named Aaron. Aaron and 3 of his sons moved to Cass Co, IN from Kentucky in 1836. Two of Aaron's sons( and hundreds of their descendants) are buried at the Metea Baptist Cemetery—3 or 4 miles east of where Daniel Fogelsong lies. The 3rd son, as I mentioned, is buried in same cemetery as the Fogelsongs.
I think Aaron may have moved to Cass County because the Fogelsongs--who were probably 3rd cousins of his--had located there. There are several Fogelsong/Yantis marriages in Maryland and Virginia and I feel certain they kept in touch with one another.
If you are related to Daniel Fogelsong, I would like to meet you (online) and share notes.

A photo of the cleaned gravestone has been added. Please review and let me know if you would prefer that it be removed in favor of the photo taken before the cemetery staff did their one-time cleaning of all of the grave markers.
