I grew up in Brownsburg, Hendricks Co., IN,46112, about 8 miles west of the Speedway Track in Indianapolis, IN, off I-74. I now live in Indianapolis. I got started in genealogy sometime around the age of 10. My mother is Betty Stephenson Schwing from Huntsville, Logan Co., OH, she is a 22nd great-granddaughter of King Edward I of England and of course, a descendant of Charlemagne, King David of Israel, the prophet Muhammad, etc. My father is James V. Schwing from Jersey City, NJ, whose mother was Lillian Kelly and her mother a Halligan so I have much Irish and German on both sides of the family. After losing all my personal things, I no longer have the photos of the headstones anymore, but have many inscriptions I want preserved and found this site so here I am. Many of the listings I will put up are from county histories, some DAR things as well as visits, photos from books, etc. I will list the published source if one. If a PHOTO is in a published source I will list that, but will NOT submit the photo as it would be copyrighted.
Samuel Harrod I know a lady that's is doing research on Samuel Harrod, General War of 1812 that's buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in South Charleston, Ohio. She is specifically looking for his military records and has asked me to help her. She explains she has looked everywhere for the records and hasn't found any. Could you give some advice that I may pass along to her? Thank you
Danielle Akins #11834406 My name is Carolyn Novreske. I am the grandmother of Danielle Akins. Would you be willing to transfer her memorial to me? Her name is misspelled on her memorial page. Her middle is Carolyna, named after me so I would like to correct it. It was misspelled in the paper so I can understand how that happened. Plus it is an unusual spelling!
I would like to include a picture of her headstone, both the front and back. The poem on the back of her stone has such a nice message from her mother.
RE: Alverson Pinchney Mendenhall I got his birthday from Quaker meeting notes and i have about 5 different meeting notes and they all have the same birth date. Please feel free to use them if you like.
Alverson Pinchney Mendenhall HI this is new to me but i have a question. I have found multiple documents that say Alverson Pinchney Mendenhall birthdate is 11 June 1820 and you have it as 1832. I was not sure which one is correct. can you tell me where you found the birth year? thanks
