Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been an amateur genealogist for 10 years. As many of you can attest to, this hobby soon becomes an obsession. I have written 2 books so far, both on my husband's family the Bushong's and the Davis's. Currently I'm working on my mother's branch (Elford) of my family. It's always exciting to find a new name, a missing date, or especially a picture.

RE: Field Family
I got the initial list of children from the census records: 1850 Clinton Twp, LaPorte Co, IN; 1860 Springfield Twp, LaPorte Co, IN; 1880 Lincoln Twp, Madison Co, IN.

I also used a book: Wilber J. Harding, The Hardings In America, 2 vols. (Keystone, IA: The Harding Printing Co., 1925), 2: 189.

Then I talked with his great grand-daughter, who is my daughter-in-laws Aunt. She filled me in on quite a few of the children, because she remembered family talking about them from when she was young. She also told me that Richard and Mahala both went from Indiana to near Bethany, Missouri, and that they both died there and are buried in the cemetery there.

There is a gravestone there for R. L. Field, with a place for his wife's name, but it was never added. There are no dates either. The cemetery staff told me that they think Mahala is buried next to Richard in an unmarked grave.

Here is a complete list of my sources for this family:

RE: Re: Jake Gallatin
I've been having other people tell me that too. I think they have some glitches in that edit thing...

GALLATIN in Snider Cem. OK
I'm looking at your request for me to delete one I created (based on Tyner's spelling), on Jake Galation/ Galatian, etc.
I guess I could delete it, but if someone were to look for him based on the correct spelling of Gallatin, they still wouldn't find him under the correct name, would they?
Never mind, I went back and see that you had changed it to "Gallatin." That was my concern. I do think it might be helpful for researchers if you would point out on the bio section in the memorial that there are alternative spellings out there(intentional or otherwise) of the last name. I think this one, being home-made, can't really be blamed on a monument company, but I certainly have seen those, also. I call it stone-carver error.

So, all that being said, mine is deleted. I sent you an edit so that Tyner's plot number can be added, if you don't mind.

Names of Samantha's daughters
I am a relative of Rose Ann Fearnot who married Levi Gallatin and their daughter Samantha married James Bushong and they had one son and also Amanda had two daughters. Do You Know their names? I'm sure one of them was called Delia.
Do You know what happened to them? I have been researching the Fearnot family from 1836 when they came to America. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Carolyn #47532274

James Basil Bivin
Thank you so much for trying to find and photograph the gravestone of James Basil Bivin. I truly appreciate it. It is so sad that many of our ancestors stones have deteriorated to the point of being unreadable. Thank you again for your effort and time.
