I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.
My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!
Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.
I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.
Mary Elizabeth Talbott Need to correct parent information for Mary Elizabeth (Mournout) Talbott # 32316453. You have her listed as a Serie - which is her mother # 31254715. Her father was John Peter Mournout - # 22509644... Therefore it should read "She was the daughter of John and Minnie Wilimenia Mournout. NOT Serie.

Hannah Compton Young The information I have found on Hannah Compton Young doesn't match the grave marker. Hannah is the 2nd wife of Berryman Young. Married 8 July 1856, Fountain, Indiana.
1860 Census taken in Vermilion, Illinois shows Hannah (age 23) with 4 children (some step-children I would assume). That means she was born about 1837, not 1887. The marker shown for Hannah cannot be the mother--perhaps a child? Or is the submission of the detail (1887) wrong? Please review this and let me know what you think.
Mount Hope Cemetery Just wanted to send you a great big THANK YOU for all that you do. I was looking again at the Sloan family burials in Mt Hope and realized how many of the memorials here and elsewhere in Fountain county were prepared by you. All are so nicely presented and carry such great links. Your work is greatly appreciated!! Gay Sloan
William T. Marshall - # 17498834 Hi Lesa, I have been working on Glaze family extended families for sime time now. William T. Marshall's second wife was Caroline 'Carrie' C. Calhoun, daughter of John & Martha Matilda 'Glaze' Calhoun; and granddaughter of James Albert & Mary 'Phillips' Glaze who are my 2nd great grandparents. I noticed that you posted a photo of the gravestone of William T. Marshall. He and his 2nd wife Caroline Carrie Calhoun were both buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Wingate, Montgomery County, Indiana. Would you happen to know if there is a stone for her.
william's 1st wife, Sophronia Ellen Braden Marshall is buried in Rush Creek Friends Cemetery, Tangier, Parke County, Indiana. She has a stone.
Any help is appreciated very much. Marjorie Glaze/Hart Gisi (MGlazeHart)
Wondering where/how you came to find information on David Bell who you list as being buried in the Pine Village Quaker Cemetery? Am wondering if there are any records for the meetings of the Quakers that are from that area? Am trying to find information on David's daughter, Susan Bell, who was married to John Oliver Talbott and is buried in the Attica Riverside Cemetery.
I'm a direct descendent of John Finn who I believe may be interred in the Keeling Cemetery in Veedersburg, Ind. Here is an excerpt from his obituary: "John Finn... died at the home of his brother-in-law I. N. Ellis, in Veedersburg, Ind, afer a long illness, March 20, 1904... Funeral services were conducted at the residence Tuesday afternoon by Rev. Rinehart of the Methodist church, the Masonic order and the G. A. R. Post having charge of the interment in the old town cemetery... He was married the second tim eat Lebanon, Ind., to Miss Rachel Allen, who survives him."
At this time, I haven't found a record or grave site for his wife Rachel (She also went by "Rachel Allen Finn"), so there is also the possibility that the plot may be for her as well.
Is the plot big enough to have both of them interred there?
Any additional information you can supply would be greatly appreciated.
