Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am continuing my journey with the Findagrave community. I became hooked when I started researching my 89 year old mother's ancestry, and found her great grandfather's grave not far from my co-conspirator sister's home in Muncie, IN! Quite a coincidence. I enjoyed the feeling of discovery.

RE: Gladys Pease
Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. It looks like you found her father. I descend down from William Franklin as well. Here's my email address if you would like to correspond directly.

RE: Gladys Pease
Let me get her linked up and that will help you a lot. The surname Pea turned into Peas or Pease for some families. A few individuals changed their last names completely. I have an extensive Pea family tree and happy to share what I know about your family.

Is Gordon Ransdell memorial that you maintain the some of Gladys Pea and Peter Ransdell? I'm researching the Pea Family tree and filling in my collateral lines.

I just tried to link her to her husband and failed. He is Floyd Frances Pipes (1914-1978, and I am not sure how the failure happened.

RE: John Gimber
Well, that's pretty funny you ask that. I was just telling my husband something very similar to that when I was researching the Gimber's. I found a Gimber headstone but couldn't read the first name. It was either Mary or Maria and the stone is next to Henry and Veronica Gimber. They had a daughter name Mary but no Maria. When I asked her a question about it she said she couldn't answer my question since I wasn't family. Then she walked away. This is the fourth time I have had this same women; and the first and second time she was very nice and very helpful. The third time I had her she said she could help me if it wasn't going to take too long.The man in there really does seem put out when you come in there. It seems most of my stones I get are for section 6G, which is huge and marked by color. but they never tell you what color section they are in. So, yes I do agree with you. I have never claimed any from Calvary and I am starting to not claim any from Holy Cross/St.Joe unless I see they have gone unclaimed for several days.

RE: John Gimber
Stephen, I have been back to the cemetery several times and I could not find a headstone for Anna Gimber. I didn't want you to unclaim it, then me turn around and claim it and say I couldn't find a headstone. We can do that if you want, or you might want to look yourself. It says she (the Gimber's) are in Section B4. But they are directly behind the marker that says B3 back a few rolls off the road. I did find a headstone for Kathrina Gimber that was buried under the grass. I saw a sunken spot and started pulling up the grass, and there it was. Anna's is probably buried too, but I couldn't find it. LuAnn

John Gimber
I want to apologize to you. I filled a request the other day for a Nicholas and Elizabeth Gimber. While I was there, I took pictures of several other Gimber's that I saw in the area. I just posted them tonight. The other Gimber's were John Gimber Sr., John Gimber Jr. and Louise Gimber. After I was finished posting I see there was a request for John and Anna Gimber. It was the same date's for the John Gimber Sr. that I posted tonight that you have claimed. Again I am sorry, the post that you claimed wasn't there when I took my pictures. But I didn't take one for Anna Gimber.

The photo of Philip Coridan's grave is very helpful, thank you. If you happen to notice any Coridan's nearby next time you're there, photos would be wonderful.
