Bio and Links
I was borned in Lawrence County In. and moved away to live with my aunt and uncle when I was 4 years old. I was raised in Posey County In. and still live in this area.
I still have family in the Lawrence and Jackson County area. I'm very interested in finding out about my family and have been doing research for several years and am trying to help others out by taking pictures and including information from obits when I can. I will continue to do this as long as the site is free.
Families that I'm interested in is Wilkerson, Nowland-Nowling, Brown, Shipley & Beavers.
I will only take photos in the Posey County area. I have taken photos at Dixon Chapel and Leesville Cemetery in Lawrence county, have about 50% of each cemetery covered and plan to do the rest next spring.

Isom Wilkerson 106551905
Isom Wilkerson was the son of Davis and Pasty (Young) Wilkerson. The couple you have listed as his parents were lived and died in another state and were Wilkerson and Rebecca (Powell) Davis. I have yet to find the death info for Davis and Patsy Wilkerson, some have his death as 1874 but that's when Wilkerson Davis died.

On another note, I believe Davis Wilkerson did remarry in 1865.

The Isom Wilkerson for memorial 106551905 was married to Sarah Elizabeth Shapley in 1870, I believe she died in 1894. He then married Malinda Nicholson 13618251 in 1915.

Polly See Baxter could not have been married to this Isom, he was married and having children with his first wife in 1872. She was married to Isom's uncle, Isom Wilkerson 71966662

Virgil Beavers and 3 deaths on 19 Mar 1976

I know that you are related to the BEAVERS, you have a VIRGIL LEE BEAVERS in your Grave Finder, and there is a photo of a partial grave next to his little brother CLARENCE F. BEAVERS.

I have found that LINDA L. BEAVERS ( 15 JULY 1953 -- 19 MARCH 1976 ) and TWANNETTA D. BEAVERS ( 10 MAY 1975 -- 19 MAR 1976 ) who I believe them to be the wife and daughter of VIRGIL LEE BEAVERS ( died also 19 MARCH 1976 ).

Could you please tell me what happen to cause the death of all three of them on the same day.

My name is MIKE FISHER and I have been for some 30 years now tracing OUR FAMILY TREE.

Any help would be appreciated . ..

thank you, MIKE FISHER ( )

THX for the photo. I see you have her listed twice under: Weddle & Weddel. Was there a reason ?

Lewis Thomas
Candy, will you please remove the photo you added to Find A Grave #92603766? There was already a very good photo of the Thomas stone on the memorial. I appreciate the time you took to add the photo but a duplicate is not needed. Thank you.
