RE: Related to my husband
You wouldn't have happened to come across any photos of Henry and Olive have you? Our daughter is doing a project at school on family tree and origins. I have lots of printed info but almost zero pictures. Thanks!

RE: LCPL David Edward Owens, Jr
Thanks for getting back to me. Like you I thought is was a cool design. I even added it to my scrapbook. Just leave it there... I doubt anyone will have a problem with it or even know that.

Happy Memorial Day to you too.

LCPL David Edward Owens, Jr
Hello JJ,
I saw a virtual flower you placed June 23, 2011 on the Find A Grave Memorial of LCPL David Edward Owens, Jr; Find A Grave Memorial# 7358680 . I a circle of 12 gold stars on a blue field w/ the words IN MEMORY underneath. I like it and would like to use it but pardon my ignorance; is there any significance or meaning to this symbol. Before I start using it I want to make sure I know what I'm posting. Thank you in advance for letting me know.

William Henry Spencer
I see that you left a tribute to William Henry, he is my Great Grandfather. I was wondering if you had any info on his parents, Samuel Spencer and Mary Gregory. I have not been able to find anything about them.

I have had my DNA done by Family ree DNA and they showed that I am descended from William Spencer who emigrated to New England in 1632/3.

Possible Cousin

RE: William Fischer Boyd
Thanks for the reply. I have similar problems with my Boyd line. Because of a Y-DNA match, I'm pretty sure my 2nd g-grandfather came from Hawkins County, TN, but because most of their records were burned during the Civil War, I have no proof of this connection. These Boyds came to TN from Virginia, so that may be where our connection is, but we may never know for sure. I'll just keep looking!

William Fischer Boyd
Hello JJ,
I see that you left flowers on the memorial for William Fischer Boyd (#29561398) back in 2009. I was wondering if you had a connection to William. He is my 1st cousin 1x removed and I am trying to find any living descendants of our common ancestor William F Boyd (b.1848 in McDonough County, IL, d. 1925 in St. Louis, MO). Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Bruce Boyd
St. Louis, MO

You're welcome - my Black Friday was much better spent in cemeteries than in shopping centers! I also posted the same photo to his wife's memorial.

Dedication Honors Portage Township Pioneers

NW Indiana: Brendan Clancy, Portage Township Trustee, invites the public to a Dedication Ceremony in honor of some of Portage Township’s earliest settlers on Thursday, October 30th, 2014 at McCool Cemetery (2700 McCool Road, Portage IN 46368) at 3p.

A beautiful, new memorial has recently been erected at McCool Cemetery to remember those first settlers who are buried at James Shrock Cemetery which was established in 1836 and is located alongside the present day Indiana Toll Road.

The James Shrock Cemetery nearly became obliterated and removed when the Indiana Toll Road was constructed. The original survey plans for the toll road had the roadbed going through the cemetery, however, protests from a local Chesterton resident blocked the obliteration and saved the old cemetery.

Through the years the James Shrock Cemetery has been the recipient of vandalism and mistreatment, leaving many of the head stones broken and missing. Portage Township Cemetery staff have worked to piece the puzzle of broken head stones back together, gather data of pioneers buried at the old cemetery, and have erected a new monument at McCool Cemetery so these early pioneers will not be forgotten.

Join the Portage Township Trustee’s office as they dedicate and pay tribute to some of Portage Township’s earliest settlers. For more information contact McCool Cemetery at 219-763-2717 or

We will be cleaning the James/Schrock gravestone fragments this Saturday at Mccool cemetery to be put around the memorial. We could use more help if you'd like to join us. Let me know.

RE: Iasiah N Crawford
Hi JJ Coppinger,

I apologize for this long overdue reply. For the first time today, I finally enabled Messages on my Contributor Page. I was touched to see such an outpouring of compassion from you and other Find-a-grave family members. I thank you for your words of encouragement. I pray that the Lord will continue to strengthen you and use you to touch many hearts!

I want to add, I am sorry for the passing of your loves ones. If it is any consolation, remember that the love you shared is alive in you and recorded eternally in the history of time.

Thank you for providing your love and affection to Asia and others in my family!
