RE: where is Basswood cemetery
Could you be talking about Bassett Grove Cemetery/Burial Grounds in Grove?
If so, here are the directions to Bassett Grove Cemetery :

From Hwy 10 north of Cowskin Bridge, go east on E 250 .03 mile. Located with the Seneca-Cayuga Bassett Grove Stomp Grounds.

Hope that helps!

Have a great day,

RE: additional Henderson photos
You're welcome for the photos. We were not in the area of the bad storms that hit IA yesterday, and it's so nice to get outside. Ashton is a beautiful little cemetery with a chapel located next to Wildwood Park. I enjoyed it. Have a good weekend, Cindy.

Benjamin Hardin at Crown Hill, Indpls
I was not able to locate a marker for Benjamin Hardin or determine a reliable approximate location. I posted a general view of Section D. There are few markers, and many are badly weathered and illegible. GPS of the area: 39.82440, -86.17612. Sorry there isn't better news.

RE: Paullin Seagrave
Thank you for your message. Paullin is my direct ancestor. I have spent years trying to locate information and records on him but with not much luck. I have searched the 1850 census of Randolph County, IN but did not find him under Paullin, Pauline or even Paul. There are no land records for him.

Harding pics
The pictures that I uploaded for the Hardings were taken a while back. I have been working on this cemetery for awhile but haven't had the time to sit and upload all of the pictures I have. I had to go to the cemetery today and since I now have a better camera than I did when I took the other pics, I got some new ones today and replaced the pics I uploaded two days ago. I think these are easier to read and better overall. Just wanted to let you know that there are different pics on the Hardings memorial pages.

RE: Cornman
Thank you. I am just glad i could help. Is this Cornman related to you? There was another Cornman husband and wife buried near them and some others on the other side of this cemetery that are distant relatives of mine. The ones buried near them were Maurice & Doris Cornman and a Catherine Cornman. I have photos of those too if you need them.
Happy Hunting!

RE: Hardings
Well I am sorry I couldn't do better..

My 3 year old I usually bring with me.. but this cemetery Lofton.. there were no directions for it... I had to ask around from people who lived in the area for a long long time..

When we found the cemtery.. we were out in the boonies.. and *lol* I forgot my cell phone.. so I was just praying we didn't have an issue.

As we drove closer to the graveyard.. this BIG black dog comes out of no where and runs to the car.. and I pass him and keep going getting closer to the first gate.. (not realizing this dog is following us.. )

So I pull up to the first gate and get out of the car to see if I can open the gate somehow.. and I see that I can and am ready to open it when I see that Big black dog hauling tail down the road.. well I have a fear of big dogs.. and so I just wanted to get back in my car.. I get to the car door with my hand on the handle.. just as the dog is making the corner of my car.. so now I'm thinking.. I can't open the door to try to get in.. didn't want my 3 year old to get attacked.. and so I'm all ready to get bit and have to fight this dog off.. *Lol*

This dog comes barreling at me.. jumps at me.. and starts aggressively licking me to death !! *lol*

That dog was crazy.. not dangerous.. but hyper to say the least.. and HUGE !

So I go to open the gate and get bck in the car and drive to the second gate..

The dog follows.. and so that gate i can see is easy to open.. so I figure.. I don't want my baby girl to be freaked by this dog.. so I decide I'll carry her from the car to the gate.. slip her in and then slip in myself and leave this crazy dog outside..

I manage that successfully.. and take a picture of the graveyard sign and me and Zoe (my 3 year old ) we start walking around and I'm looking for the graves you requested.. and wouldn't you know it.. that Crazy dog.. he managed to lift the latch on both sides of that gate door and came bounding in towards us.. and freaked out my daughter big time..

So now I'm carrying her to keep her from being licked and bounded to death by this crazy dog.. she's scared.. and I'm holding 32 lbs of her in one arm and balancing the camera in the other.. with this dog running around my legs like crazy ..

I found the graves.. and tried to get good pictures.. but I couldn't crouch down to get a better picture.. because of that dumb dog.. he would have got me and my daughter.. and then he popped in a couple of the pictures.. I had to post one .. (sorry.)

So then I'm leaving.. I get the baby in the car.. and that dog is still in the graveyard and I didn't want to leave him there..

so I called him out.. locked the gate.. and the dog seemed clamer..

I drove to the first gate... the dog leading the way.. get out .. lock that gate.. and
then the dog.. totally calm.. just walking with me.. I pat him.. and he walks away.. leading us down this old dirt road.

It was the weirdest thing.. and then he was gone into the field or something..

it was the weirdest thing. I told my daughter.. that dog must be the guardian of Lofton Cemetery.

We called him Lazarus.. seemed suitable.

But the whole experience.. was so interesting.

My uncle just died in Florida, my mother is sick with Dementia.. and being stuck in Northern California.. has been really hard .. and so I admit.. I've been kinda depressed the past couple days.. but honestly.. that whole event, knocked me out of my depression.. and it was AWESOME.

Anyway.. if I get the courage and time.. I want to go back.. there's a lot of graves there.. and it would be nice to get pictures of all of them (minus the dog) to put on this website..

I'm glad the pictures were okay. Glad also you enjoyed the dog story. It is pretty funny ! Even to me ! =)

Best Regards,

Chris Robinson

Susan M Allen
This is the wife of the Andrew Allen you asked me to post a photo for, in Green Lawn Cem., Columbus, Ohio. She is Andrew's wife, so I made a page, linked her to Andrew, and transferred to you. I have the lot sheet with names, dates and maps for all those in this lot, inc. the two relatives you requested who did not have stones, I will e-mail them tonight so you can find where Andrew & Susan's daughter and son-in-laws plots easily if you get the chance to visit.

Many thanks for the photos of Richard and Virginia Cook's stones. They were my aunt and uncle, but could have passed as grand parents. They were really good to my sister and me.

Thank you.
