|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in my family history, and with the help of my mom ( who has been doing family genology since I was a little kid)I can go back several generations. I live just 2 blocks from Calvary Cemetery in Garrett, Indiana .Several family members , neighbors, friends ,founding fathers of Garrett and interesting people are now emtombed there. Once I started with these people I couldn't stop. I plan on having everyone listed and a photo of every stone completed by the summer of 2012. Several stones are broken and lots of them are now almost unreadable and will be unreadable in the coming years. This is my small contribution to preserve the memory of the great folks in there. I encourage anyone to add a photo or request I transfer a family member to them so you can add stories and family links. God bless our Veterans !!!UPDATE : Calvary Cemetery is done !! I still have to update a few pictures, but everone is listed.|

"Oh my gosh, David!" Your photograph of Lloyd's headstone is all that and more. Thank you so very very much. Please revisit his memorial page and check out the photos. Yours is on the top! Make sure to click on see all photos because there are specials ones there you may enjoy! Great big hugs to you!
|Sherri Czuchra||RE: LLoyd Crowl|
You are so kind. I cannot delete any photos due to not being the person who posted them. Once you delete your photos you will love to see what I post. Lloyd's mother lost this son in WWI, another son, James Donald Hoyt was killed during WWII and her husband died in a home for the disabled vets from injuries sustained in the Civil War. He was in the hospital for many years.
Today, the only reason disability and pensions are paid to Americans is because of his mother and a handful of other people in Ohio. As a group they traveled around the U.S. and lobbied Congress for payment to the vets and families along with housing.
It is just unbelievable to me that people today think it is just something the government created to take care of our soldiers when in fact, people fought real hard for years begging for that right.
Again, thank you so very much for finding out what happened to Lloyd. Do you know that our Smithsonian Institute will not even talk about this aircraft disaster because the American Navy had not completed payment on the dirigible and neither did the British so the American Government does not claim this aircraft, hence, nothing in the Smithsonian.

|Jill Dale||your Hartford/McNulty So Bend Connection|
I saw your posting of the obit on Thomas Hartford (husband of Mary McNulty) I have been tracing quite a few of the Irish Families in South Bend (my 2nd GGP Martin Brennan and Catherine Corcoran supposedly traveled via train to South Bend with the McNultys and Frains) and they all lived next to each other on Notre Dame Avenue (listed next to the McNulty (ND Avenue) and Hartford family's on Corby street in the 1900 census in So Bend). Here is a link the South Bend Irish families I have traced thus far (I have a lot of info on the McNultys I would be more than happy to share!
I would love to hear from you so that we could share information!

You are welcome. The weather was finally good enough to walk 2 blocks to this cemetery.

Thank you for transferring the memorial of Miles Smith to me.
|Sylvia E. Wilkinson||RE: Didion|
You are most welcome! I am just glad I went yesterday as we received 10 inches of snow up this way. ;)
Others have helped me to retrieve photos, so I am happy to return the favor to others.
|Debi Morris||RE: Becknell|
Hi Cousin! I do enjoy this as another medium for finding relatives. Please contact me directly, and I will share what I have found on Charles Becknell & family, if you are interested. I have been to the cemetery in Paris, Ohio a couple times, as it is only about 1.5 hours from where I live in the summer. Look forward to talking with you soon.
