Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love going through cemeteries old and new.
To me they are a place of beauty. The artistic style and beauty of many of the older grave markers, shows the true skill of the craftsman.

I am interested in genealogy. I love finding lost relatives. I am willing to help find lost loved ones in the SE Indiana area, and take photos if I can.

My family lines that I am actively researching:

Frantz Family Kith and Kin

I am directly related to the brothers Christian, Michael and Balsar (Balthasar) Frantz from Switzerland.

Both Michael and Christian are my 7G grandfathers

Father's Line
Swartz Family Kith and Kin
Ulrey Family Kith and Kin
Snell Family Kith and Kin
Fitzgerald Family Kith and Kin

Mother's line
Scharf Family Kith and Kin
Heath Family Kith and Kin
Halliday Family Kith and Kin
Page Family Kith and Kin

and many more branches yet to be discovered

I will transfer memorials upon request following the FAG guidelines.

John Smith
Looking up records on find a grave.

You took a picture of the headstone of a
John Smith, 1822-1866, buried in Greendale Cemetery, Dearborn County, Indiana. I am trying to add in cemetery record my a Smith line. I cannot make out on John Smith's headstone who his parents were and his spouse. If you can tell me what it say I'd be greatful.

Thank you for your time and service to find a grave.

Danny Gilvin
I saw your message on Danny's memorial. I drove that red VW Beetle right off of the showroom floor in 1975. I put over 100,000 miles on it and then my Dad gave it to Danny's mother. She drove it to nursing school and then Danny took it over to drive to HS. Oh, the stories it could tell! Thanks for remembering my nephew.

I sent edits for her birthdate based on the grave marker, also for her maiden name based on the Spring Grove cemetery records. Please ignore these if you have info from better sources!

RE: Happy Spring
I can't wait to get back there! For the chili, for Spring Grove and just to be in one of my favorite places and hang out with you! I hope you and your son are both well - we missed you, but if you get up here to visit, we'll do a re-play! Take care!

Thank you
Thank you Donald for updating dad's (Tom Welling) memorial site. I usually do it but it has been rough the last 7 months so I never got around to it. I am thankful that you updated it for us. It is much appreciated.
