Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in family history and genealogy, as well as local history. I have been so thankful for information I've found online when others have provided it, so want to do my fair share. Will add photos when possible.

I have photographed most of my family gravestones from various cemeteries and if possible will try to find them for others if able at the time of the request. Due to health problems, I have not been able to do as much as I'd like.

IF I have created a Memorial for a friend or family member of yours and you want me to transfer ownership, please let me know.

I rarely create a Memorial Page unless it's for a relative or someone who is close to my family; I try to guard against sensitive material that might embarrass anyone and I also try to link Family Members whenever possible.

I have verified as many of the dates and relationships as possible on or, or through Family Knowledge that has been passed down.

I have taken great care to try to be as accurate as possible, but if you see a mistake on any page I've created, please let me know so I can correct the mistake as soon as I possibly can.

I want my pages to be as correct as humanly possible, as I have seen many careless mistakes on some pages. I always search for the person first so as to try and avoid duplicate Memorial Pages. I also always re-read what I post so I can correct any typos I may have overlooked.

My Family names are Arthur, Bales/Bayles, Grinstead, Hillenburg, Houshour, Jeffries,
Martin(on both Maternal and Paternal sides!), Owen & Page.

Many Blessings to all those who contribute to Find-A-Grave in any way, and to all those who have lost the ones they most love.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 22472016
I just finished combining the two pages. The last memo you sent you had the last number in the second memorial wrong. Checking back at the copy of my page originally, I had the last number wrong. With the revision, it is not even listed - just the information credited to Ruth Cook. That may be why you got a different person. Check the memorial now. Pearl M Bryson

Joyce I will add the information from the 2nd page to mine. If you want me to afterwards to give "ownership" to you let me know. William is not in the "direct-line" of my husband's family - 2nd cousin of his. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for the information regarding Charles, had he been sick, accident? The last of knew of them, they were in Texas, and Joy worked at the Mall in Bloomington, this was been several years ago. Did they live back here in Indiana at the time of his death?
Yes we can be friends. What does being a friend on F-A-G entail? Just like a friend in person, thoughtful, helpful and etc.?

Hi, I notice that there is a Charles Rodgers buried in 2006, do you know if this is John E. Rodgers' father? Both at Green Hill cemetery in Bedford. If this is father and son, I am shocked-my mother baby-sat with Johnny and Joy, and I didn't know that Charles had died. Thank you for any information you can give me.

RE: Kathryn Alexander Hutton
Absolutely. I enjoy meeting all the people I've found on Find A Grave...some related. You never know when a connection might arise.

My grandmother told me we were related to Hoagy Carmichael. I laugh when I think about this because the man was from Bloomington and the chances are good there is a connection somewhere. I now know what family he is from (Skirvin) and my family crosses the Skirvin line. It just is a matter of time!!

RE: Kathryn Alexander Hutton was a hopeful venture. Actually, I belong to the DAR and I was looking for another connection.

Everyone seems to be related in some way in Monroe Co.

Thanks for all your help.

I suspect you are related to this lady. Charles Stratton, who took the picture of her memorial died a couple years ago.

I suggest you contact Find A Grave and ask for ownership so the memorial can be updated.

I think there may be a connection with my McCoy family but I get lost on Kathryn's parents and grandparents - their specifics. Are they on Find A Grave?
