|Bio and Links|
Hello, The last seventeen years I have been working on burial lists and photographing cemeteries in Tippecanoe County Indiana. I've enjoyed adding them online to Findagrave. With help from several folks, we're almost done with the 135 cemeteries on our list, see my link. Tippecanoe County Cemeteries |
My webpage is linked below and it shows my projects where I've restored a few cemeteries in this County.
I have recorded the GPS locations on about 130 cemeteries. There are a handful of destroyed locations I could not get. You will find my overall photographs of each cemetery on about 90% of Tippecanoe County sites here on Findagrave or on my page linked below.
For updates to my entries, PLEASE use the EDIT buttons. I will be happy to update and add your family links. You may add your own photographs to a person. Please don't add someone else's tombstone to a person. You may transcribe an obituaries and send it to me through the EDIT button, and send the source with it. I can honestly say, many folks are making a mess of these burial listings. If you find someone linked incorrectly, send yours and include a source. Marriage information is much easier to find today online.
I am currently working & fine-tuning entries in Greenbush, Springvale and St.Boniface cemeteries in Lafayette. Several people have helped to finish Ruth Neuman's 2003 project on Springvale. Thank you all for your continued help with your photographs and updates to them.
I will go back and delete dups for Springvale that were created before their duplicate system changed.
There are many errors in all the records that were used, also in the old readings too. They reflect differently between the tombstones, obituary or other records. Please help me make this information better by adding your gravestone photographs. Or send me details of the proof you have found.
While your out in the cemeteries, take time to look for the handcarved rocks and homemade tombstones as they mark the graves of someones early ancestors. They may have just been passing through on thier way to the West. Please don't move them, but photograph them for record preservation. I've found handcarved and home-made stones too.
I'm grateful to Findgrave for this site and opportunity to share the history. Our cemeteries are still distroyed everyday. So please take the time to contribute in your area if you can. It helps preserve family history for everyone and future generations who comes searching later.
I am a Genealogist with the & Tippecanoe County Area Genealogical Society (TIPCOA), Indiana Genealogy Society and volunteer at the Research Library at the Tippecanoe County Historical Association.
