|Bio and Links|
I visited Find-A-Grave for years filling in blanks on my family tree. After retirement I decided to become a contributor too (2010) here in central Oklahoma. |
PLEASE DO NOT ADD SCANS OF OBITS, NEWSPAPER ARTICLES, DEATH CERTIFICATES or any other document to any of my memorials. I will be happy to transcribe them and add them to the bio section if you send them to me. Thank you.
For Obits in the Johnson County Indiana and surrounding counties that are not included on memorials, or for obits of people who do not have a known burial location, see this link:
JOHNSON COUNTY INDIANA OBITS
THANK YOU to all of you who have posted the many old obits we have sent you. Thanks to Mark McCrady for gathering these old obits and Lois Johnson for having the above website where she posts them. Check back often - still a work in progress.
A FEW TIPS FOR TAKING GOOD TOMBSTONE PICTURES:
1. Take a photo of the entire tombstone first, then get a close-up of the name if it is hard to read on the whole view. Try to fill the frame with the stone and not the surrounding countryside, homes, cars, etc.
2. Look for your reflection or shadow in the tombstone BEFORE you take the picture! Stand to the side to prevent reflection.
3. Squat in order to get on the same level as the tombstone - don't stand and shoot down at a sharp angle.
4. If the stone is vertical, take the picture vertically - it will display on the memorial much larger than horizontally. PLEASE DO NOT put the picture up sideways!!! This is very disrespectful!!
5. Invest in a good camera and an editing program like Photoshop Elements to adjust contrast and crop and straighten the image.
6. Remember that now F/G allows an 8MB size on photos.
We are trying to preserve history so we want the very best pictures possible - it may be all that survives!
** My photos may be used for any nonprofit purpose IF you give credit by listing the source so others can find it. (Photographer's name and F/G Memorial number.)
To Find a Grave Administrators: In the event of my death, please transfer management of all of my memorials to Mark McCrady, member 47714241.

|Ainsley D McClain||Mathias McClain|
I wanted to reach out for more information on Mathias McClain. In the latest story about him, it is said that there is a depression next to Eliza (Devore) McClain. I was wondering if anyone knows any more about this. Mathias ran out on Eliza, so I'm curious if she chose to be buried next to him? Or if there is other information out there?

|Kristi Baird Hatcher||RE: #100674153 Child Baird|
Hello again ....thank you for all the links for this family. I was also doing a little more research and on Charles F Baird:
On Dec 20, 1906 Jefferson KY married Dorothy A. Tompkins...she must be the mother of the child this all started with... I have not found her grave yet.
On Aug. 10, 1909 Jefferson KY married Mabel Loraine Kraft .. 1910 Census Charles F and Mable are living with his father in Jefferson KY
On July 19, 1917 married Gwynn Valenti Chrisler in Jefferson KY....1920 Census they were living with Gwynn's parents and her daughter Margaret Chrisler.
1930 Census Charles F listed head of house at 42 with Gwynn at 35 her mother and her brother Samuel.
1940 Census same as 1930 except mother in law Anna is listed head of house.
So it appears Charles F had 3 wives and only one child.
I have linked Gwynn's brother and her father's parents.
Gee.... thanks for all your help. And this isn't even a "limb" of my tree...hahaha.
Thank you again and have a great day.

|Kristi Baird Hatcher||#100674153 Child Baird|
Hello, just doing research on my family and came upon this grave, so did some research and according to Kentucky Deaths & Burials 1843-1970: Child Baird was buried on Aug 5, 1907, gender listed as unknown, father Charles F Baird who is in this cemetery #100674149, mother was not listed so still researching this. So if you could linked these two would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and continued dedication.

|Cynthia Murphy Watson||Wesley C Hall|
I was reading what you had written about Doctor Wesley C Hall. I was wanting to know where you got your info. It states that he married Melvina C Tilford. I found a marriage lic. for him where he married Malcina C Brown in Williamson County Ill.
Also it states that doctor H.J Hall was his son
from a previous marriage. On the 1880 Census
for Johnson County Indiana. It shows H.J
Hall as a cousin.
