|Bio and Links|
Transfers: I will transfer ownership to direct descendants within four generations - the same as Find A Grave guidelines. Otherwise, I'm happy to add to memorials and make links, just click on the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial, then click on "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Be sure to give me the other person's ID number when requesting links.|
One line of my ancestors (CROSE) lived in Tippecanoe Co., IN in the 1820s. Some of their cousins lived in the next county to the south, Boone, and some south of that in Hendricks Co. I live in northern Hendricks Co., and am taking photos mostly in Boone and Hendricks, including the older, more difficult to read stones. Hopefully, these photographs will be around longer than the headstones. Many are on the verge of not being readable - even with the sun at a good angle and using tricks to bring out the text.
Since I've been doing genealogy research for a number of years, I can see a real benefit in seeing headstones, rather than relying on a transcription. To me, the important thing is to be able to read the inscription (names & dates, child of ...), but not really the verse below it. It's also important to know who is buried next to whom. I'll mention that if I notice a connection.
Cemeteries that are completed - meaning that I photographed everything and have posted all that was readable. Other transcriptions may have more names.
Beck - Bethel (Boone Co.) - Bethel (52nd St Indy) - Browns Wonder - Jones
Lowry -Macedonia - Mintonye - Mt Union
Mt. Zion - North Branch - Oak Hill (Sect 1-30, 34N & 34S) - Pleasant Hill (Indy)
Pleasant View (Dover) - Poplar Grove - Prebster - Old Union Church - Richland - Robison - St. Malachy West - Salem
Sparks - Taylor - Trotter (I can only find 33 of the 64 markers) - Weaver - Zionsville
I currently use a 10M Canon Powershot camera which will take pictures at 3648 x 2736 pixels. Normally I reset the resolution to 2272 x 1704 and then on the computer, especially with worn headstones, I turn up the contrast 20-30%, and lower the brightness 5-10% and keep the compression at 98 to 99%. When I started posting for Find a Grave the file size limit was 250 KB, then 350, 500, 750, 2000 3000 and now 8000 KB. I use photo editing software that I downloaded for free - it's much better than what Canon or Olympus gives you with their camera. With Photoscape I know the file size before I save the file.

BTW - I did locate James Steele's grave in the cemetery in Hamilton. I photographed his stone and uploaded onto his memorial.

I am looking to verify that your George R. Doty, buried in Cementerio Lindo,Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona. Is my George Ransom Doty BIRTH 2 SEPT. 1852. Yorkshire, Cattaraugus, New York.
I found a George R. Doty living in Chandler, Maricopa, Arizona listed in the 1920 US Census, http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=6061&h=1790014&ssrc=pt&tid=71279586&pid=42242367667&usePUB=true
This George was abt 2 years older. Can you tell me if your George is my 2 grandfather?
Thanks, Michael Carroll
|Shannon D.||Thank You|
I happened upon your page through a memorial you posted.
I want to thank you for posting how to see the past 7 days of memorials that have been created. I have been trying to figure this out and didn't think there was a way. And by using yours, I was able to plug my member # in and see mine. So thank you.
|Tom Pottenger||RE: John T. Withrow Monument|
thanks for your response. I never did get the email notice that you had replied. Says something about Find A Grave emails doesn't it.
I already know about Greenwood online database; there are many names on that lot that are not clearly identified. I just want to make sure I didn't miss someone, and frankly, my eyes are pretty bad!.
Thanks again for your response!
Thank you for posting the updates to the memorial pages for Thomas Harrison "Harry" and Edith (Youkey) Shultz.

Thank you so much for the tombstone photos of Samuel Scott Boyd & Monimia Bunnell Boyd.
|Patricia Herrin Mitschelen ||Doty Family|
Hi Marc...Thanks for updating the Plummer Memorial. I took a look at your relatives as I am also connected to Edward & Samuel Doty. Samuel's son Joseph had a daughter Sarah Doty who married into the Badgley family. Six generations later a James Badgley married a Mary Jane Apple.
James Badgley is buried in the Mock Cemetery in Oaklandon, Lawrence Township, Marion County.
#66868827. Mary Jane Apple (Hastings) (Badgley) (Bolander) outlived 3 husbands with a total of 7 children (that are known of).
You will probably recognize the name William Taber from Find A Grave, he is also connected to the Doty family.

|Jim Thomas||Henry Doty burial location|
I thought I'd let you know that Henry Doty is buried in Bonaventure Cemetery in lot N-227, not Laurel Grove. Apparently, he was originally buried in Laurel Grove and then reinterred in Bonaventure in 1914. I had a note from another contributor that the same thing happened to John Morris Doty.
There is a correct Find A Grave site for Henry Doty that shows him buried at Bonaventure. I would suggest you delete the Laurel Grave site since it's incorrect. I took pictures today of the Doty plot and will add them to all of the Doty Find A Grave sites in Bonaventure.
