Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photos that I have taken may be copied freely for personal use. I do kindly ask that you keep the credit intact, and not upload them to Ancestry or other sites as your own photo work. I am related to almost all of the memorials I have added and/or manage. Unless I am directly related or there is a special relationship, I am happy to transfer memorials to other family members.

Many memorials on Ancestry and Find-a-Grave reflect my previous username, DOGLOVER, which I changed to INDIANATURTLE in 2013.

Edit requests for my own family memorials that link to UB's (unknown burial location) will be declined. I will be pleased to link when a confirmed and/or documented burial location is found.

Since I am related to the majority of my memorials, I will ask for the source of edit requests that conflict with my research and documentation. While obits & verbal pass-downs are of great value and detail, they are not a primary source for accuracy.

RE: Digital Archives
That is where I am finding birth/death dates and family relationships when I can't trace those through census reports. I love that site - it just takes a while to be able to track people down through it.

Just a hint - I have found that when a female that was married died, track her only through her husband's name - they apparently didn't have a first name identity and was only known through their husband. That will help you find the wives.

Often, I will just put in a last name, nothing else (no dates) and read what comes up. I have found lots of people using this method.

RE: Sarah (Moore) Seward
Yes, I am a Moore descendant, through Philip and Sophia Moore son Orville H. Moore and his second wife Mary Ann (Arms), and their daughter Julia M. (Moore) Carsner. After over 20 years of research, I just realized I could contribute data and connect families through Find A Grave. Are you a relative as well?

RE: James H. Carpenter
I have come across many of your family recently while photographing - new photos on many of them.

Laura Carpenter
I answered my own question when I opened Laura Carpenter's memorial. Guess I should have done more investigation first!

I have linked Frank Storms to Laura

James Carpenter in Hillside, Whitewater
I just came across an interesting article in the Whitewater newspaper, dated 11-9-1892. It is about a child, Frank Storms, being accidentally shot in the head and he was taken immediately to his mother, Mrs. James Carpenter. The article spells his name STORMS but there is a STORM family also buried in Hillside. Was Laura married to a Storm(s)? The child is buried in Hillside under the name Frank Storms, died 1892.

RE: Harriet (Mould) Riggs Wilson Ingle
Other children of Uriah & Hannah are buried in Fish Cemetery, Cottonville, Adams County, Wisconsin. None of them have tombstones but someone has placed funeral markers for some of them. Am wondering if all others that you are looking for might also be buried in this same cemetery. After much looking, there is NO listing of those buried in this cemetery anywhere except for the few that are listed on Find A Grave which may not be all that are buried there.

Those listed: Isaac D Wilson(b~1831 PA) and wife Elizabeth and their son Charles Wilson & wife Emma are all buried here.

Just thought I would share, just in case you had not come across these members of your family. And, since mother Hannah and Ziba are both listed as still residing in Richfield, Adams County, Wisconsin in the last census they are found, it is strongly possible they are buried in this cemetery.

RE: Harriet (Mould) Riggs Wilson Ingle

Could this Ezra be your Ziba C Wilson??? and Ziba was a nickname? This person was born in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, the same year that Ziba was born, according to my research. He also died in Richland, Adams County, Wisconsin where I found Ziba also located along with mother, Hannah (b~1799 PA). It is possible that Ezra is a totally different family OR is somehow related since they came from the exact same county in Pennsylvania and just happened to be the same age as Ziba.

Thought I would share this with you.

Harriet Mould Ingle # 147830157
I processed the edit requests, added additional information to the bio, and created links based on the memorial for Harriet Riggs.

I do have some questions for you. Do you know why the initials H.E.P. are on the back of her marker at Plainfield? Do you know what the connection to the Phillips family is?

Thanks for the additional information!
