Eliz Sowder Eads

I just wanted to congratulate you on Elizabeth's memorial. Your description of pioneer life tells a great story in a few words. I have been a student of Indiana, in the pioneer period for fifty years or more. You have provided an image people can appreciate and think about. Eliz is my Gt Gt Gt Grandmother through Mary Ann Eads Temples and her daughter Elizabeth J. Temples Henderson. Good job well done....Mike

RE: Lucinda Rush
Thanks...I'll try to get the Find A Grave memorials updated.

I never heard the term whitecapping until I got heavily into Monroe Co. history

Justice wasn't always swift nor was it just. One of my McCoy relatives suffered the same fate. The "killer" was tried 3 times and eventually let go because the jury couldn't seem to convict him. I'm sure they all got justices on the other side.

I just love all this. My great grandparents lived and raised their children in Monroe Co. - Samuel and Malissa Swisher McCoy. I've been to Unionville Cemetery more times than I can count. I've discovered relatives all over the place. If I had been born in Monroe Co. I would be very careful before I married anyone from Monroe Co. - odds are you are related!!

RE: Lucinda Rush
I've heard cases where these "emperors" refuse to let anyone do research within their realm. I will have to mention this to the historical society here in Indy and see if something can't be done.

Thanks for the last name for Lucinda. you have any dates? She still doesn't appear in Monroe Co. list of burials.

Did the authorities ever decide what killed John Rush?

All done. Just so you know, if you just click the edit button at the top right of every memorial page, it will allow you to leave me a message of what you want me to change. The advantage is that I get an email with the link to the memorial. It saves a bit of time. Thanks for getting me the info! :)

RE: Theodore R. Sanders
I have removed the strange information from this individual. To the best of my knowledge, this is what has happened. I sent findagrave a database for all of Grant Line Cemetery several years ago. When it was posted the birth dates and death dates were correct, but the other information was shifted several people and a mess was created. I no longer send findagrave full databases. If you find any more, let me know. Thanks.

We are working to restore Keller cemetery but it's quite the battle. I work with Lou whom I believe you have already been in touch with.

We'll keep at it and try to restore as many stones as possible while keeping the forest at bay.

RE: Keller Cemetery
The address Lou Malcomb gave is below.

Monroe County History Center
Keller Cemetery Restoration
202 E 6th Street
Bloomington Indiana 47408-3518

Lou sounds like a really nice person and is interested in any information anyone can provide on the cemetery or those buried there.

My GGGG-Grandparents, Jesse and Polly Tarkington plus other members of Tarkington family are buried there. At one time Jesse and Polly owned land connected with cemetery.

I was so afraid I'd never get photos of their graves and with the cemetery in such bad shape all would eventually be lost, but when Lou told me about the restoration project I was delighted not only for my own family history but others who have family there.

The cemetery is in the process of being cleaned and graves restored. So hopefully the markers for those you are interested in will be located. Lou at the Monroe County History Center sent me the address where anyone who is interested in donating to the restoration project may send a donation. Also they have the maintenance of the cemetery completed so the future looks bright for it not to get in the shape it is now.
Should you or any other family want the address to send a donation for the project, let me know and I'll sent to you

Catherine Eads Deckard
You are saying that this is Catherine Eads Deckard. I don't think that is right. Peter Deckard married Mary Catherine Caywood Tapp on 8 April 1887. She is listed as his wife in the 1900 Census with a birth date of August 1844. Catherine Eads Deckard probably died before he re-married.

RE: Keller Cemetry
Thanks so much for you message. I really appreciate you help. Jesse and Mary are both my gggg- grand parents if I have the g right. The cemetery may not be well kept so you may want to go prepared with long sleeves etc. Hope not but its an old cemetery and from the area photo, it doesn't appear to be.
Thanks Again

I saw where you had added some graves names for Keller. My family "Tarkington"once owed the land where the cemetery is and Jesse H and Mary "Polly" Tarkington are buried there. Do you live near Standford where the cemetery is located. I am trying to locate someone who could try and get some photos.
Any help is greatly appreciated

Henry Sanders Oct 1751, Feb1834 is my Great Grabdfather and this is the information I have on him.
HENRY Sanders was born in Perquimans County, North Carolina on October 26, 175I; he died in 1834 near Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana. The family moved to South Carolina where Henry enlisted for service in the Revolutionary War in the spring of 1775, serving throughout the War with the South Carolina troops. While in Service he married Dica Blake, daughter of John and Morning Blake of South Carolina; nine children were born to them: Ferbia who never married, Henry, John, Wright, Joseph, Dica, Priscilla, Morning and Blake. The Iast two died young and there is no record of Dica and Priscilla. For forty years after his Revolutionary service Henry Sanders was a Baptist Minister, and in consequence the family moved frequently. They went over the mountains to Tennessee and then to Kentucky where his children began to marry and go out to make homes of their own.

Extracts from HENRY SANDERS Revolutionary War File #9178
