Bio and Links
Bio Photo Inspired by the work done by her great grandfather, Silas Wm. Blizzard (fag #40386458), while writing a history of his family, my mother, Eleanor Clara Blizzard Black (fag#36676318) began her own research. She continued until the early 1980's when arthritis and osteoporosis made the work too difficult for her. I had always found the subject interesting but did nothing with it until after inheriting mother's numerous notes. I began my own search to learn more about my ancestors and those of my wife about ten years ago but did so on a limited basis until more recently. Find A Grave has proved to be a wonderful tool! I've "met" so many people here who have been so helpful to me. As I've visited cemeteries and researched names, I've found many of our relatives. I've also created memorials for many other people I've found along the way in the hope that what I've done may be helpful to others who are searching for their ancestors. If I've entered information incorrectly, I apologize; please let me know and I'll make corrections. If you find ancestors of yours among the memorials I've created and would like for me to transfer them to you, let me know. If neither my wife nor I is related, I'll be happy to make the transfer.

Aaron A Mohler death month incorrect
Tom... I see the month date on the obit for Aaron A Mohler was entered as MARCH. Thus March was used as his death month.
I have 3 different Indiana newspapers for his obit: The Logansport Pharos-Tribune, dated MAY 18, 1965; Kokomo Tribune, dated MAY 19, 1965; Kokomo Morning Times, dated MAY 19, 1965. These obits can be found via For my records, I am using the month of May. Perhaps you would like to verify what I have found. Thanks.... Marysue

Henry Black (Born 1898)
Are you related to him? I'm researching my family and I've hit a roadblock here (great-great grandfather via Eugene Black). I can't seem to find anything else on him, but thank you for the image. Its better than nothing especially since there's more names on the grave I can research.

wrong black
I might have the wrong family. Do you know a John Wesley Black 1838 to 1914 Ohio/Indiana?

RE: Rebecca Hadley
My apologies - I'm completely at sea as to why I sent that to you. I am usually very, very careful when I request a change, particularly one that massive. That one is going to make me crazy, because I agree with your original information. Again, my apologies… I don't recall why I would have made that request at all.

RE: Rebecca Hadley
I'm puzzled too, because I show Rebecca as Olive's and Jonathan's daughter as well, on my family tree. I will have to see if I can find my suggestion (I do not have my computer to hand at the moment), and see what I sent you (and what I meant to send you)!

I know there was another person who I think added a memorial for Olive, and sent me a message about rearranging their order on Jonathan's memorial page. I haven't had time to take a look and see what all that was about.

re: Killmers
Hi Tom,

Thanks so much for the speedy transfer of Kilmer/Killmer memorials to me! (I feel the same as you, if I am not related, that memorials should be with interested relatives who will add info on them.) It is much appreciated.
