Bio and Links
I enjoy creating memorials. Some of these are for my relatives and others are not related.

I also enjoy providing information and links to existing memorials that others have created for members of my family or associated families. Quite a number of contributors I have sent information to have voluntarily transferred memorials to me, saying the memorials were for people who were not related to them.

I honor the people of the past and the opportunity I have to share some of their history and happenings through findagrave. I have worked on my own family history off and on for years. I am more than happy to share information and answer questions.

RE: Ridge Cemetery
I want to give you the name of a contact in Dekalb County IN that may be able to assist you with your searches. Her name is Lynn, and she works on Tues & Wed at the genealogy annex of the Eckhart Public Library in Auburn IN. Open at 10 on T and 12 noon on W. It is called the Willennaer Annex. Not sure I got the spelling right. Google it. I will file your requests for future visit to Ridge. In the meantime, I will contact my neighbor, as she has an original copy of the history of Dekalb County and see if there is any reference to the Rockwells. There are copies of the same at Will.

RE: Richard L. Thomas
I was at the genealogy annex of the Eckhart Public library in Auburn IN. It is called the Willennar (sp?) Annex. I met the president of the DeKalb County Genealogy Society and we were discussing Ridge Cemetery. It was one of the cemeteries that the society has restored. She, too, has pictures and has recorded the grave sites once again. We were discussing Lyman Thomas, the memorial I added today. I brought up Richard's, too. Do send me your questions and between Roselyn and I, I am sure they can be answered. I will definitely need to go out there again and look at stones a second time. I did not have my materials with me to rub or brush, etc. Nor even a notepad! See what photographing leads to!! LOL!

RE: Green Memorial
I put a request for his marker already... thanks. I also found a picture of them and put it on his memorial.

RE: Wanda (Holroyd) Green
Sadly I wasn't able to attend either funeral. So any information you have is greatly appreciated. I saw and talked to their son Leroy at Mom's Funeral in 2011, but we didn't discuss his parents.

RE: Great Grand Uncle Lewis Rhines
Hi, Since he is your relative, I thought you might like his. If you do, let me know when it's up and I'll add the picture of the lot. Otherwise, I can create it if you want. Mary

RE: Elizabeth Rhines
Hi, I didn't see a stone for him, but checked the office today. He is buried next to Elizabeth, but has no stone. I did take a photo of the lot. Mary

RE: Ephraim Rockwell
I believe that the YOD is 1841. The 4's & 1's on these old stones are difficult to decipher. The month is March. I think the day is the 1st. I did not have any rubbing materials with me at the time. I will keep it on my list to do when the weather gets warmer and drier!

I wanted to let you know that I have photographed this gravesite, and the first name is spelled EPHRAIM. I need to download and edit the photographs; they will be posted soon!
