Bio and Links
If other contributors would like any of my photos placed on their memorials deleted so photographs and other important information can be added, please let me know and I will be happy to delete .

Sometimes it seems to me that a few members have lost sight of what the purpose is on Find A Grave. To me it's not about how many memorials/photos you add so you can increase your numbers more than another member, it's about remembering and honoring a person, to share information and photos.

I enjoy adding personal information in the bio area. I enjoy listing veterans of the "War of 1812" and "Civil War" and early pioneers of the United States.

I always try to be respectful of other contributors work. If you find I have made a duplicate please let me know. I strive to be accurate. To me it's all about quality not quantity. I see each memorial as a person, not a number.

If you would like to contact me privately , please use the edit button to leave a note or leave a message to contact you... I give my e-mail when I feel it is appropriate.

Rush Station (Darke Co)
I uploaded all of the pictures I had fromthe gravestones in March of 2009. There are not many, unfortunately. The school house is located near the intersection of McMecham and Bechtol Road. The graves were all stacked on top of each other so I could only photograph the ones on top. They were too heavy for me to move. They are stacked on the north western and maybe some on the northern side of the school house. My sister said she thought she remembered the original cemetery being on the south side of the school in a wooded area back in the 1960's. Of course, any trees seemed to have been plowed as well as the original cemetery. Such a shame. We haven't been to the area since around 2009, so I'm trusting the school and graves are still there.

Burdge at Topeka Cemetery
I wish I could have gotten the engraving more legible so it could be read better, but it was thin engraving and a very 'confusing' marble pattern. I did bump the contrast up a little on photoshop, but that still didn't do the trick.

I don't know if this is your man or not. I do notice, as I'm sure you have, that there is a Sarah Acre Little of about the same age at the cemetery and a Frances Littell. You're Sarah Burdg has a different maiden or middle name. I'm not saying it isn't same folks, I just can't verify the connection.

RE: Peter Rush
Thanks so much and I will look forward to message after checking. I know that Peter's will was filed and in recorded in Dec. 1819. Well that's according to the information U listed.

Thanks so much for your help.

Peter Rush
Wondering if U are related to the Peter Rush # 113017601 ?? It shows his death as 1819, on his memorial it connects him to 2 sons that passed away in 1853, aged 23Y-1M-23D, which makes him born in 1830 & the other one dying Nov 12, 1859, aged almost 26 Ys., making him born Nov. 1833. Both born after Peter died in 1819. Wondering if this is your information? Do we have a wrong death date on Peter??

Thanks for your help
