missing children
Hi I'm Ashley the great granddaughter of George Clyde Cook and I just wanted to inform you that you do not have all his children listed. George and Dorothy had 7 children. Also under Fredrick D. Cook Sr my grandfather you do not have any of his children listed and so forth. Just wondering if you are able to fix this.

Parker Family

His stone does look awesome!

I am not sure about the War of 1812 part. With a common name like Parker, it's been hard finding out information.

I noticed that your profile said that you're a founding member of the local genealogical society - I'm assuming in Bartholomew County?

My next question is, does the local genealogical society have any information on probates/wills? I know that our local genealogical library houses all of the county's original probate and wills after the courthouse was tossing them out.

James Parker
Hi there Donna,

I was so excited to see that my family may have knocked down a very long existing brickwall.

My ancestor is James Parker who was born abt. 1790 in North Carolina and lived in Columbus, Bartholomew County, Indiana in 1850 and 1860. We could no longer find him after 1860 so we assumed that he had died in the 1860s.

I noticed that you added a photo/memorial to a James Parker (1790-1864) which seems like an extremely likely candidate to be my ancestor. Everything seems right.

I have two questions:

1) Would you mind transfering the memorial to me so that I can add information?

2) Do you know if there are any other Parkers near James? I have no info on his wife's Margaret's death.

Thanks so much!

Cole C.

Martha Demar Hockersmith

Thank you for your edit for this memorial. My family records indicate that Martha's parents departed from Maryland after she was born.
She appears in Bartholomew Co. Indiana in 1850 as an infant, born in Indiana. In 1860 and 1870, it is indicated that she was born in Maryland. Please share whatever you might have for her.

I am interested to see what you have for any member of this Demar/Demarr/Marr family in your Indiana records.

Thank you for your additions to Findagrave. You have done an amazing job.

Your help is appreciated,

Denby Brown
Sandhill Cemetery
Seems like your doing a lot of work for Sandhill, if you happen to find any information for a Dorcas Richardson, I think I might have seen Norman funeral Home records, and it showed Richardson plus another name that I don't recall, dod was 12-6-1906, I believe, she died the same day as her mother just 6 years later. She would be a Gr Gr Aunt, also looking for burial place of her mother Dorcas Richardson, DOD 12-6-1900, I think possible buried in Liberty Cemetery.

Thanks Denby

Find a Grave rules.

Find a Grave has many rules, for example, it is forbidden according to their rules to photocopy an obituary, then post it as a photo, but many do it. So, I will try to follow the rules from now on.

Find a Grave rules
Donna, thank you for pointing out to me about the rules on reading stones. It couldn't be read, and I wash them off before I leave, but I will keep in mind what you said, and refrain from it in the future. I have seen many different schools of thought on the different methods. Some say that even water and a soft brush are unacceptable, so it depends on who you talk to as to what IS

RE: Bartholomew County Poor Farm
Thanks for the help Donna. The newspaper article says Sanford was to be buried at Bear Creek. I was actually just more interested in reading some cool old records. :)

Bartholomew County Poor Farm
Do you know if there are any records for the Bartholomew County Poor Farm, for 1898 and a few years before? Not really sure what I'm looking for....I have a reference in a newspaper article of Sanford Fowler having died in the Bartholomew County Poor Farm in 1898. Am curious when he was taken there. Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Re: Rachel Howard memorial
Hello, thanks for your note. I have messaged the memorial creator and asked that they click on the edit button, at the top of my memorial and add their corrections/additions. They can also request I transfer my memorial to them.

I have added your updates for John and I linked his wife Sylvia to him. I deleted my memorial for her in Easton Cemetery but did list your comments in his bio section. I added her gravestone from Easton to his memorial with a note that she was buried in Indiana. It does make for confusing burial records and I did not want to have a memorial for her in Easton if she was not buried there.

Theron Dowell
Walker Dowell
Donna I have been looking for a connection between George William Dowell born in Bartholomew Co. and Walker Dowell from North Carolina. I been looking through LDS Library - Indiana, Bartholomew Co., Probate Court Microfilm, but all of what I read on the settlement of Walkers estate doesn't mention anything about George. Walker died abt Apr 1843. George was born Mar 1833 and was place in a home of Asa Dowell shown in the 1850 Census. Asa is no relation to George through DNA samples from Asa's relatives. So George was and Orphan. Do you have any Ideas where to look. I believe they are father and son. George also had 2 sisters and a brother named Lawson.

I see that you declined to link the 5 Shumay children to their mother -

In 1860 Ind Census
Edwin 25
Amanda 22
Mary A 1

In 1870 Ind Census
Edwin 36
Amanda 34
Laura E 9
Lorenzo 4
Edwin 1

In 1880 Ind Census
Amanda 40
Emma 19
Lorenzo 14
Medie 12
Perl 5

In 1900 Ind Census
Thomas Gore b Aug 1872 27 married 12 yrs
Pearl b Sept 1875 2 children
Ona b Dec 1888
Margareta b Dec 1894
Maude Shumway b Dec 1838 mother-in-law

With the dates matching and names - I am assuming the name Maude is a nickname for Amanda

I found a memorial 136428713 that has a Maud Shumway buried in Indianapolis

If this Maud is not Amanda Abel Shumway - can you tell me where she is buried and who this Maud might be?

Thank you

I am most interested to find out how you found the grave of my GGG-Grandfather William Beatty located in row 16 in Bethel Baptist Cemetery? I am assuming his grave is unmarked my aunt walked though the cemetery and found many of my Beatty's but not William or his wife Sarah. Do you show him in a cemetery record from the historical society.

RE: John Gulley
Thanks Donna! That is really appreciated. I've never seen his grave stone. The only reason we know that he was married to Lucy Ham is because her name is on Willis' death certificate. Never found any more info than that for her.
