Bio and Links
Bio Photo An interest in local history resulted in a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published containing names of settlers in the area who happen to be members of Western Star Lodge No. 240 AF and AM and an unpublished manuscript about officers of the city police department. This led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries which prompted my interest in geneology.
If you find errors or changes necessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries.
I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds, Wittenmyer and Buckles from south and west central Indiana and Kentucky.
If you find a relative (within Find-a-Grave guides) I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries. To avoid further errors and mismatched information, however, I will promptly honor only requests through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.

Gladys Louise Hershbarger
Hi David,
I believe that Gladys Hershbager is not the daughter of Victor Merlin, but his wife Gladys Louise Jelly. She was born 16 Aug 1914 and died 25 Jun 1942. They were married 14 Sep 1935.
My great-great-uncle Victor was married 4 times-- he lost his wives to early deaths.

Headstone Photo
I noticed you posted a headstone photo for Sarah F Miller Griffin, memorial # 88486154. On closer inspection I discovered her husband shares this same headstone. I would appreciate it if you would attach a photo of this headstone photo to Hazo James Griffin, memorial # 88486152.

I am searching for a full obit for Lynn Carlton Godwin, who passed away in 1995. I am also looking for a photo and wondering if any of his children are living. Thank you

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 141181114

Finally! Thank you SO MUCH for posting this site! I have long sought her identity as the 'odd-lady-out' in a picture of her in a birthday party. In the picture is --
Wilson Bowers - relationship unknown
Evans Wright
Sarah Wright Zink
Celia Wright Ratts
Mrs. Samuel Hinds [Catherine Wright] and
Mrs. Fulmer [no information]

Thought I was 'losing-it' until I accidentally came across this site. The picture is completed. Thanks for saving my sanity :^)

RE: William A. Godwin
Thanks David for your quick response. I think I need to do more research. I have "Frank Godwin" married to "Sarah Huntington", Frank's father as "William Godwin", his mother "Martha." Therefore I am not sure about William's middle name nor Martha's. I probably jumped to conclusions too quickly when I saw a William A. Godwin and Martha A. Godwin. Thanks again for your time. I will be in touch after more research.

William A. Godwin
Hello David. My great, great grandfather was William A. Godwin. My great grandfather was Frank Godwin and my grandmother Rose Ann Godwin Armstrong. Do you know the maiden name of William's wife Martha A Godwin? Thanks much! Judith Armstrong Marion
