Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: If contacting me about one of my entries, please identify that person by the Findagrave memorial number located at the bottom of that person's page. That saves me much time in looking them up. Thanks........

I'm a long time family genealogist, have made use of many genealogy web pages, and have decided it's time to do my part as a volunteer, as many others have done, by placing sometimes very difficult to locate birth and death dates in Findagrave. Some of my entries are for family but the most are from 'just going down the rows' in cemeteries available. My hope is that I'm helping at least a few unknown genealogists with information.

A word of caution to the unsuspecting:
Along with obituaries, gravestones are NOT infalliable in accuracy, most often having a partially incorrect date for the birth date. My experience has shown gravestones to be inaccurate in one date or another at least 5% of the time. Birth and marriage dates in obituaries have a higher rate of inaccuracy. Even death dates on gravestones are subject to error as I have found in many years of researching.

Memorial #74648747 John Nimrick
Gary,

Thank you so much for your work. I have been looking for interment information on John Nimrick, my 2nd great-grandfather. I notice that you had his wife Sarah listed. As her name was not on the grave marker are you related to John and his family or did you know a relative of his (John Nimrick)to obtain wife's name, children's names and that they lived and farmed in the area after the Civil War. Her maiden name was Nay, Full name Sarah M Nay. John was also enlisted in F 9 Indiana Infantry.

Thank you,
Catherine L Miller

Hi Gary,

I noticed that there is a headstone behind Jane D. Olds #66976214.

Do you happen to know what name is on it? Take a photo?

Gary,
Could you please add Bartley to Joyce Anne's name in "daughter of John and Joyce Anne Hendricks" Her mother's maiden name was Bartley and it was please her. My brother John second wife name is also Joyce Anne.
I think Wanda's stone has been updated,so when I get to the cemetery I will add that.
You have done a good job but if would like you can transfer their memorials to me and I can do it.
