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.

Timothy Hege in Reichter Cemetery
Thank you so much for updating the information that you had on Timothy Hege. We were almost positive it was our relative but when we saw that there was added information it proved it. George "Mac" Hege our grandfather is his son. Thank you so much for being a great volunteer! Janet Taylor

James M Horn #69849787
Are you by chance related to James Horn?

I work for the Fulton County Historical Society, and in Rochester Indiana, and we had someone contact us with some items that had belonged to the Horn family and would like to see them returned to a family member.

That is a beautiful picture of your mother but you have the wrong number for her Find A Grave No. should be 36676318. I just thought that you would like to know. I'm working on Black, Borders,& Chases. So I took a look at your bio. . My mother was of the Borders & Chase, Rogers family. Fred Black is in the Borders-Chase linage. Betty Wever
