I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".|

Just looked and the photograph and it is the right way on my iPad, maybe your computer settings are showing it differently

You are welcome!
|Islandergirl||Gillis photos posted yesterday|
yesterday I posted photos for Elizabeth and Bennet Gillis. I checked the cemetery database and apparently they have stones that I did not find when I went yesterday. so oops. I will remove the photos and go again to find the correct location and photo as I now know what style of stone that I am looking for.
Are these family or part of the Gillis "study"?

Oh I really am over the cold!!! And the rain is becoming too much too😊 Hopefully warmer clearer weather is on its way! I have loads of sites to locate...I do not stay focused when I'm cold!
Take good care of yourself!
|kdxdot||RE: Joe Derr Hardesty|
Good morning Jim, no, did not find any military records on him except the two drafts. As I mentioned:
WWI is Joe Derr Hardesty
WWII is Joe Derr
view of his signature reveals the E in Joe on both is a backward 3 so have to say, it is of the same man.
Also, according to the death certificate, informant his nephew Cleo - he is marked Never Married and NO is checked in the "armed forces" section.
Have yourself a very nice day and catch you another time. Warm Hugs, cousin Dott

|JANET (Simmerman) BARNABY||RE: Mary D Mater or Mather #81208555|
I noticed the number of Mater spellings also...not sure what to make of that.
I know that Thomas Mather comes from "my leg" of the family....
his dad is James Mather #145332721
However I will be looking at this spelling to see if any I cannot find might have used it....I think it possibly comes from a pronunciation and then spelling, but not sure because so far none of the others on that list are mine....except her son LOYAL DIXON MATHER
her dad, Phleming Dixon Johnson #72581617 is in this cemetery.....that helps to know I have the right girl
thanks for your help
