Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

You had requested info on Elizabeth Johnson b1836/d1887. I have looked through the records and find no record of her having a headstone. We do have some Johnsons in Row 22/East side. A Henderson, Genie, John, M Daniel, and Mary if any of those would be related to her. please let me know if I can be of any more help.

Since the request has been on since 2013, why don't you call the cemetery and get a location? I am more apt to look for someone if there's a location.

Mary Mellinger Buckwalter #67090041

How is it known that Mary's father's name was Durst Mellinger? If you have information on this, I am truly interested in knowing about it.

RE: Elizabeth Walker Photo - Thanks
Hello Jack,

I'm sorry I couldn't be more help with this, I was hopeful that I missed a grave marker last January when I first entered the cemetery.
After visiting the cemetery again yesterday I realized that I didn't photo the weathered or broken markers when I was first here in Jan 2015.
It's very possible that one of those stones was Elizabeth's, however, there is a small chance that it could also be buried.

I didn't realize that there was a message center within the website until you responded today, I've also found the mobile app that I use all the time doesn't have all the features of the website.

If you'd like me to find out who the property owner is I'll ask around the next time I'm up that way. Parke county property tax records aren't online like Vigo county, so I was unable to look it up on Beacon. The cemetery is .8 tenths of a mile inside Parke county.

I sent an email to you over the weekend to the one that was listed on your profile,, is this a generic one that find a grave uses?

Mine is if there is anything else I can help you with.

I didnt look at the date in which you requested the photo, I just happened to pull the cemetery up on the app the other day and noticed it.
