Bio and Links
Bio Photo I learned about genealogy from my mother. Long before the computer, she wrote letters locating her family. It's been over 30 years since I started filling in our tree. Currently tracing: Blanchard, Lanham, Carson, Carter, Coleman, Ashby, Williams, Taylor, Lindsey, Bough, Allen, Bogusz, Boyd, Grant, Yocom, Batchelor and Wallace trees. I've walked cemeteries in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. I'm a member of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society, Clay County Genealoigal Society, and Cemetery Committee. Recently became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, and as a newspaper and a portrait photographer, I love taking photos.

Before posting a Memorial, I research the person as much as I can, which helps fill in some missing information. I try to link family members, which helps tracing other relatives. It's a simple procedure, and really helps in research. If I've posted something wrong, please let me know. I'll correct any mistakes in a timely manner. I will transfer memorials that aren't family. Just ask me!

Census and obituaries can be a good source, however, like anything else they contain errors. I've found errors in names, dates of birth, death, and locations.

As a retired Air Force Master Sergeant, I try to find fellow servicemen, so they can be properly remembered.

(November 5, 2013) My daughter, grandson and I took a trip to Ohio County, Kentucky guided by my Find-A-Grave friend, Helen McKeown. Our goal was to find more family connections, and we did. We visited: Milton Taylor Cemetery, Morton Cemetery, Sunnyside Cemetery, West Providence Cemetery, Centertown Cemetery, Waltons Creek Cemetery, Carson Cemetery and Beulah Cemetery. I saw where my father went to school in Centertown, and lived. (Both are now gone). We found several Revolutionary War connections.

Cliff -I goofed and deleted John Langman.

I re-entered him Memorial# 128152973. Could you please add your photo of his tombstone please.

Thank you for all the nice clear tombstone photos you took.

RE: Sylvia Mae Allbright (FAG#126953438)
Thanks for all your help. I have seen the Allbright name spelled with two "L" and just one "L" in the same family line both on documentation and gravestones.

If you go to the Lincoln County, Kentucky Genealogy site it will show you the location of the cemetery and pictures of some of the graves.

Thanks Cliff. These are my husband's families names. Met with my cousin, Dannie Perry about SAR. Gave him all the adjoining documents he will need and told him we could all try to meet up to get him started. When you get your starter packets or whatever you need, let me know. His email address is so don't delete if he tries to contact you. geraldine
