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.
# 21490038 Earle Douglass Wilson Gary Myers, Thank you so much for "walking the aisles" and creating memorials such as Earle Wilson's. You greatly helped my Wilson family genealogical research. Find A Grave is a wonderful site due to your and other volunteers' efforts. Carol Wilson
Unless there is a separate tombstone for Jennie Modie Hughes as a wife of Ellis, I believe that she is the same individual as Martha Jane Modie Hughes. She appears as Martha on the 1880 census, but as Jane on their son, George's, marriage record and Jennie could easily be a nickname for Jane.
I don't find a 1900 census record for him, but he indicates that he has been married one time on his marriage record to Emma L. Warner. She has also been married once before and her maiden name is Holbrook.
I will leave it up to you to make the corrections if you agree with me on the above information.
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.
