|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. I had a great aunt who did our family research in the 1940's to 1970's. She got me interested and the rest is history. I would be happy to transfer management to family members. I also would be happy to add any information if it can be documented. I will share photos of family ancestors I may have, just email me so we can get acquainted. Happy hunting.|

|Nathan Haines||RE: Hindman's|
Yes, genealogists were many "hats". Detective, file clerk, research analyst, and archeologist to name a few. The archeology comes in from having to dig up old gravestones to find them. :-]
I got the pics per your request for the Hindman graves. It was the first really nice day yesterday that we have had hear in quite some time. Today it is raining away again and is supposed to all week long.
The Hindman stone is starting to get overgrown by the big tree they are by. Part of the end of the stone is under wood now. In 20 years from now this picture will still be here and there will be less of the stone you will be able to see at the cemetery then.
It looks like they are in the Enchanted Forest. There is a lot of trees all around them. I did not see any elves around there when I was there. :-]
|Anna Selfridge||RE: Rev Geo Riley Obit|
No - I'm librarian at the county museum. A descendant had requested a copy, so I went digging. Could I have your email, & I'll send it direct.
|Anna Selfridge||RE: Rev Geo Riley Obit|
The text of the obit is correct; paragraphs formed somewhat differently. Major tape damage will prevent it from copying well. Let me know if you still want a copy. That paper is NOT online. :(
|Nathan Haines||PS- Rose Smith|
There are two people buried just to the right of Rose and I don't imagine they are related but thought I would mention it in case you know different.
Benjamin F. Kelly 1864-1922 and Elijah Arnold 1862-1919.
There are several unmarked graves the other side of Rose.
|Nathan Haines||Rose May Smith|
I did not find Rose's stone the first time I looked for it. I waited until the next time I went to the cemetery and took my section map for the section she is in and discovered the Lot's were laid out a lot different than I thought they were and finally found her stone.
It is just one of those really old temporary cement stones and this one looks like it was homemade even.
It is quite worn. Good thing to get a picture of this one before it is eroded down to the point nothing can be made out on it anymore.
It says on it=
It looks like 1860
Interesting that they put Born with the last three letters in lower case and the word died in all capitol letters.
I found a funeral notice in the paper and it says she was 61 when she died so that would prove that she was indeed born in 1860 and just short, by how much I know not, of making it to 62. Do you have the funeral notice for her?
There is another old stone like this about a hundred feet from her grave and I have tried every trick in the book trying to figure out who it is in that grave and struck out. That stone is cement and a little more worn down than Rose's stone.
You're welcome... whenever I find unmarked lots or gravesites I still try to take picture to add to requests and memorials.

|S.R.F.||RE: Elizabeth Downes Latham|
Thank you for writing....I have since read that her name was "Elizabeth" and that her maiden name was unknown. I think the Downes name came from someone's family tree and I do not think it is correct. I read that "Elizabeth" was the first of the spouses of Lewis Latham, but that WINIFRED DOWNES was another of the spouses. Some people have combined all three names: Elizabeth Winifred Downes, but I believe this is incorrect. I am sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

|Rustydog0329||Niva in Lakeview Cemetery, Calumet|
I could not find Isaac Niva in Sec 5, but while fulfilling another request I happened on another Niva in Sec 14 that is not listed on Find-A-Grave.
August Niva 1855-1930 and
Anna Lisa Niva 1854-1940
Let me know if these people are of interest to you and I can send you the pictures.
