Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: Wood and Wehr
The Wood family members in the plot are Sheldon, Esther, Robert & Marjorie. I've already added photos for them.

I know Jim, it is sad when family isn't able to put markers on. The other one that I looked up that day was from 2012 and the cemetery marker was still there, but those don't last for too many years. I have some ancestors without stones as well. Wish I could put stones on, I would if I could.

RE: Need help.
Hi!! Leonard Clay nor Laura Thomas are at Highland Lawn. I may find Laura at Roselawn. Roselawn is reporting a Laura and Leonard Clay. I broke my foot and have not been able to go searching. Ideally just a few more weeks and I will be back on the roaming! Hope to have good information for you soon 😊

I only created the memorial and photographed the stone, but have no further info on them.

Your welcome. Trying to get the headstones submitted that I took way back in 1999. How are you related? John was my 5th great grandfather.
