Bio and Links
Bio Photo I really enjoy working with my and other family trees but until lately I have not had the time to do so. Cemeteries hold so much information for one to gather from like leaves from a tree. There is peace walking through a cemetery that tends to bring on a calmness in one's soul.

My family lines are many but my main ones are:
Harlan, Kennedy, Marsh, Simmons, Cook, Kinsey, to name a few. All these families came from other states but resided in Hancock/Henry/Madison Counties, IN.
I was born and raised in central Indiana but when I was young my Dad moved most of us to Texas and here I have stayed.

I will gladly help anyone with finding information for their family tree if I am able to.

RE: Billie Joe Michael
Hi Jo :) I added the link to Billie's mother but don't have enough information to add a memorial for his father so you might add one if you have more...birth and date and places, parents, etc...and then let me know and I'll link him as well. Otherwise I will try to get some more information this afternoon and do it myself. I have to work this morning and am just doing a quick email check and you are my only message this morning so got away with doing this lol. I am going to be out and if the rain stops long enough I'll run through Grovelawn to see if I can find the stone/stones but I may actually already have photos on cds that I haven't gotten to yet as I've photographed almost the entire cemetery but had to put the pictures on cds so the thousands of photos I have didn't bog down my computer...I'm currently doing them one cd at a time...long process! Have about 80-90 cds waiting!

Alberta Rowena Orchard
Thank you very much for getting this photo for me. I am trying to figure out if this Orchard is related to the other Orchard family in this cemetery which are related to me.

RE: Nancy Brown Harlan
I guess because I photographed so many Harlan Graves in Village Creek Cemetery I was contacted by an individual who finds old photos, family records, or items that can be identified to specific familied . She has information about a Harlan Family Bible that you may be interested in. You may want to contact her to find out the background of what she does & has. Her email is sadsam1@embarqmail,com

I'm researching the Barnum family tree. Would you be related to any of these family members?

RE: Harlan Cemetery

For this you will have to contact Find-a-grave, as I did NOT set up the cemetery page.


Find A Grave contributor Jo has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Matilda Harlan.

Link to memorial:

Their suggestion:
another correction is the Harlan Cemetery is considered Wilkinson and not Warrington.

RE: Matilda Harlan #43550805
Thank you for the data for Matilda Harlan (43550805).

I have did the links and have moved my memorial for her father, William Marsh from Hays Cemetery to Glen Cove Cemetery in Knightstown, IN.

I apologize for the error.
