Ash headstone photos
Thank you so much for your kindness in sending all the photos and transcriptions! I am delighted. I don't know at this moment if there is a connection but there probably is. I am Ash by birth and my line came from Crawford/Perry/Orange counties. Benjamin & Hannah (Figg) Ash & their descendants. I have a good bit of info but am just now moving it over to Ancestry. I've kind of neglected this line for many years while working on other ones!

I appreciate your offer of help and will keep it in mind as I start posting info. Does your husband descend from this same line?

Margaret Bruner Bailey
Thank you for your effort to find this headstone for me. I well understand the problems of locating these older stones. I know there must have once been a stone there for her because the Find A Grave memorial was created from an old library file when someone walked through and recorded what was there. Margaret was an older sister of Daniel Bruner, also buried in this cemetery, and I believe her age should have been recorded as 80 years at death instead of 30 (probably a typo in the library record or the stone was too eroded to read the number eight instead of three). She appears in an 1870 Census in her brother's household that gives her accurate age. I truly appreciate your time on my behalf.

RE: Mary Stevens / Stevens Cemetery
I do not know. Most of my info comes from family in Harrison county, but info is conflicting. Other info is from the book The Stevens of Harrison County, Indiana, but it claims to be inaccurate and speculative guesswork. I have 17 Mary Stevens and the daughter of Jacob Lawrence Stevens is confusing. Also, some people suspect this Jacob Lawrence Stevens could be the son of a different family. Could you send some of your husband's info so I can compare and send my thoughts back to him ?
I have a Stevens/Stephens database with over 35,000 names, but I can't link them into families. I have dozens of family trees, but few are linked together. It seems Harrison County had several different Stevens families living & buried there. Thanks.

Well can't seem to find your e-mail. At least I thought it was there. Anyway if you want to send it to me would be fine.
If you prefer to just let me get in touch with you on Find A Grave I can do that too. I think.

You just never know who you are going to meet. This person I mentioned in Salem is Richard Dixon. You may have met him and he and I found out we are distant cousins. I live in Frankfort just northwest of Indianapolis not far off I-65. My maiden name was Mounts and they are from around the New Philadelphia area. And my mother's name was Roberts and they too are from down there. Martinsburg and Pekin. So I have a ton of cemeteries down there I have been to a lot of them with Richard's help.
I am going to put you in my e-mail list, then if I run across someone else in the Corydon area I will let you know.
To me this is what makes working on genealogy so much fun.

RE: Phillip Ems
Oh dear Josie. I have him with the death date of Mar 23, 1899 and a birth date of Dec 1853. This makes more sense to go along with all the other dates.
If you would like you could find out what that Local No 25-25 means. Sounds sort of like a union, but they didn't have unions back then did they?

RE: Phillip Ems
Thank you Josie I can't think of anything else. I did find there are a lot of Ems buried in in Central Barren Cemetery. Interesting that his wife is buried there but then I found out she was married before. I have found so much on Ancestry and when I first started with the family I didn't belong to them. Nor did I know about Find A Grave until just a few years ago. Has been so much fun putting people on Find A Grave and just found out a short time ago my computer has its own program to resize pictures to fit. I am not a computer raised person as I am now 79, so everything I have learned has been hands on training. Thanks for all your help. And not I do not know what that notation means in the books. I have a friend in Salem who does a lot of this work plus he is caretaker for over 200 cemeteries in Washington Co. He might know.

Thanks for trying to get this for me. It is appreciated and I know so many of these very old cemeteries have very old stones that are unreadable. I appreciate your effort.

RE: Melissa
I happy that you like it. If you need any help with anything just let me know. If you create a memorial you can link them to their parents and spouces on the memorial page. All you have to do is find the person you want to link to your memorial and then copy the memorial id # on the bottom above the name of the person who created the memorial and then paste it onto the memorial on the link family members part.
