Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on our family trees sence 1975. I use to take my Mom with me to the old cemeteries and she'd tell me the old family stories of the ones that were here before Indiana & Michigan were states. I've been blessed to hear those stories all my life.
I have been scolded (by another member) for posting headstones that do not have death dates on them, meaning there is the possibility of that person still being alive. I do this so those who are searching have the opportunity to contact the person and getting information from them instead of just staring at a marker. I am not giving out personal information. I only post what is engraved on the marker. We all seem to have our own way of doing things. No ones better then another.
I will make correction as soon as I can. If I don't get back to you quickly please forgive me. Carol
This site is important to Carol, so when she's not feeling her best, I've decided to help her out. Mel

Clyde Pickrell
Sorry I pushed the wrong key and the empty message was posted. Clyde Pickrell was a distant relative of my late husband, Bill Pickrell. I was wondering if you are a closer relative of Clyde. If so I would be happy to transfer my posting of Clyde to you. My # 14545023. Please contact me.

Hi Carol & Mel
I believe I have found a piece of your family history you may be interested in seeing. Please call me at work and ask for "Sam". I'm the Asst. Mgr. at Goodwill on E.Jackson St. in Elkhart. I am off today however if you leave a message I can get back to you when I return.

RE: Geo. Sailor - St Vincent's
Thanks for the heads up. I have added over 1,000 photos and it's very possible I will goof up occasionally.

RE: Geo. Sailor - St Vincent's
One of my retirement hobbies is family history. I found St Vincent's only had about 25% photographed. If I mixed up with one of yours, I apologize. I don't see a Murillo in my notes, but I will double check.

By the way, how did you know I made the rods? Just wondering, as I don't really remember telling anyone on here that I did that.

Onsted Cemetery
Hello! I, too, have worked on the family tree for years. I recently relocated to Onsted and the cemetery is where my boyfriend's parents and many other family members are buried. Do you need help finishing photographing it? I saw that it was 88% done. I live about 4 blocks from it so, once the ground hardens, I'd be happy to finish it for you.
