Gordon Buehrig

Read your obituary of Gordon Miller Buehrig and was wondering if you were a close friend of Gordon. I have been researching the Buehrig family for over 40 years and I am hoping you may be able to add some information.

thanks _ Mark Buehrig

Pop Buell
Hi there Mr. Walter,
I am very interested in Pop Buell and learning more about this incredible Indiana man. I see that you provided a John Steinbeck quote and would like to know your source. Did the two of them ever meet? And If so, do you have any photos of these great men together?
Much Thanks,
Sallie Higgins

Farley family
I inherited a very large stack of great photos and letters from my grandmother who found them inside a suitcase she purchased at an estate sale in Florida. The suitcase contains photos, letters, books, certificates and more. (Even a lock of hair from a young woman who died of consumption in 1889.) Among the many family names was Farley. In fact, more than any other family, I found photos, school books, graduation announcements and more related to Frank Farley, who apparently attended a military academy in 1917 and Purdue University. My search for descendants led me to Find A Grave, and I see that you entered photos of their graves. I would love to find descendants who would treasure these treasures. Do you have any leads, anywhere you can point me to find relatives of the Farleys? (There were a lot of Wheelers in the box, also.)

As a Bloomingtonian, I have special affection for Ross Lockridge Jr. and sometimes visit his real grave. In reading Lockridge materials here, I found your info and discovered that you are a fan of my great unsung hero Will Cuppy. I've had my grandparents' copy of "Decline and Fall" for decades, and I still read it whenever I'm especially down. It never fails to cheer me. Cuppy was one of a kind.

Rommy Lopat
Bard memorial
I put the photos on your Bard memorial and deleted the other memorial. You should suggest to the cemetery that they clean that memorial (and he needs a flag). Interesting man!

D. Montgomery
Mount Royal Cemetery photo
Hello I am writing to request permission for use of the Mount Royal Cemetery entrance photo you have posted at this Montreal cemetery site. I have a relative Mary Margarite Crimmins (Find A Grave# 108910827) and her family buried there. I live far from Montreal and would appreciate use of your great photo as the cemetery photo for these memorials.
I would appreciate your help with this.
Thank you.

Calvin Fairbank's parents
There are a dual entries for Calvin Fairbank's parents Chester and Betsy Fairbank. You have them buried in Angelica, New York in apparently unmarked graves, but another entry shows their marked graves in Maple Lawn Cemetery in Bolivar, New York.

Eugene Glenn Stackhouse
Pastorius of Germantown
There is no evidence that PAstorius is in the Germantown Meeting Burial Ground. There is no St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Germantown. There is a St. Michael's Lutheran Church.

RE: Will Cuppy
Hi, thanks for your message. I am an academic librarian and a historian, so you can imagine how much I enjoy Will Cuppy's works--he still makes me hoot with laughter even though I've read almost everything he's written many times. I hope you get it sorted out. Thank you for keeping things accurate on this wonderful website.

Will Cuppy
Dear Mr. Walter,
For some reason, Will Cuppy's grave is erroneously linked on the website to a woman buried in Arkansas who was only 12 when he committed suicide in New York in 1949.

Her name is Bonnie Jean Perdue.

Birth: May 28, 1937
Death: Jun. 23, 1979

Wife of Ora Lee Perdue.

Family links:
Will Cuppy (1884 - 1949)

Can you get this corrected?

(a lifelong Cuppy fan)

Laurie Voss
Gene Stratton Porter site
My name is Laurie Voss. I have a website where I photograph old cemeteries in Indiana and then index all of the photos for genealogy use. In using Find-A-Grave to locate cemeteries, (I also place photos on the site for others), I came across the Gene Stratton Porter gravesite. I was wondering if you would mind if I use your photos (with credit) for my site. Since those are the only stones there, it would be much faster and cheaper than driving there. If that is not ok, that is fine. I will get there eventually. You can check out my website at:
Thanks for your consideration.

Cosper Cemetary book
The information about the Cosper Cemetary says there is a book on the Cemetary compiled by Ralph Campbell. Is there any way to get a copy of the book?
Thank You,

Gordon Buehrig photo
Do you know the source or photographer of this photo, or do you know if it is in the Public Domain? I'd like to use the image in a book.

BOWSER, Ephriam Shenadoah
Michael, I am attempting to locate the gravesite of Ephriam Shenadoah "Shan" BOWSER in the Auburn, DeKalb County, Indiana area. He was born in 1870 in Armstrong County, PA and died in the 1930's in Auburn, DeKalb Co. Perhaps, while doing your cemetery search, you might keep an eye out for his tombstone. Thanks!
