Bio and Links
Bio Photo I discovered Find A Grave while researching my family history...and now I'm hooked! There is such a sense of peace and tranquility, especially in the older cemeteries. The history behind the stones is fascinating to me, and I'm happy to be part of preserving that history.

When photographing a cemetery, I only touch the stone when absolutely necessary, and even then - soft brush and water ONLY! If you use chalk, flour, cornstarch, etc. to "bring out" the writing on the stone, PLEASE STOP! You will damage the stone, whether you realize it now or not. Visit the discussion forums on this site for safe alternative methods.

I have a personal and/or family connection to almost all of the memorials I manage. If you notice any errors, or have information to add to a memorial, please use the "Edit/Suggest a Correction" feature to contact me, and I will gladly make the changes.

Vieley Cemetery; location of Fannie Davis's grave?
Hi Erin - I know this is a longshot since the photograph in question is now 7 years old, but I was wondering if you could help me find the location of Fannie Davis's grave in Vieley Cemetery, Lizton, In...

I've been reading up on the cholera epidemic, and I was interested in finding Fanie's grave marker, but in two visits have had no luck. From your 2009 picture it looks like she is located in an area with more weeds than grass, and considering the current condition of Vieley, chances are very good that she's completely covered.

Anyhow, I'm curious if you might remember any details about the location of her grave. Thanks in advance.

Huntsman/Meador Family
Hi my name is Bonnie Meador Haney. My dad Gerald Meador was born in Scottsville,Ky. His dad was Mack Clyde Meador that wad married to Mary Elizabeth Huntsman. Her father was Jack Huntsman & mother was Lucinda Cooper Huntsman. The only info I have is that they maybe at Union Chapel Cemetery in Scottsville,Ky. I saw a message that you had posted to Mr Brown about a Huntsman or Nancy Cemetery. Can you please give more info on this or more info on Huntsman family. Planning a trip to Scottsville so anything would be helpful. Thanks

Hello Erin,
I too am a family researcher, and Margaret is also my husband's third great grandmother, thru the Loughridge line. I would love to connect with you on research. I retired a little over a year ago and previously genealogy research had been a hobby I loved but never had time for. Now I have tons of time and I am definitely hooked. Let me know if you would like to connect.

RE: Charles and Mazie Spangler
My aunt, Loreita Buswell, married Harold Spangler-they are both buried in Maplewood Cemetery in Anderson, IN. I typed in a little information about Harold and linked him to his parents (I had to ask some of his children/grandchildren for their names). That is really all I know about the Spangler Family. I don't think any of their families are on Find a Grave, even though I've told them to check out what I insert to make sure it is accurate. I think you might as well keep the Spanglers unless you are just ready to get rid of them. I would take them if no one else wants them and you no longer do but I would transfer them to anyone who asked for any of them! Does this help you?

Mazie Catherine Spangler was born in York, Pennsylvania and died in Kentland, Indiana.

Could you add this information to her memorial?

Thank you.
