Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

Thank you
Your entries have been invaluable to my research efforts in Indiana for my ancestors. You have done for me and many, many others what we could not do for ourselves in recording the burial information for our deceased loved ones. Thank you so very much for your time and dedication.

This is Norma Bonebrake Kelley who is my grandmother. I would like to manage her grave site and be able to update her information and link her with her family. I am a new user and getting started with my family plots. I went in to edit the information but it said it will be reviewed and then I will get a message. Are you the one who is managing my grandmothers grave page? Thank you for contributing so much to this site.

Nancy Ann Worthington Day
I am the 2nd greatgrandson of John N and Nancy Ann Worthington Day. My grandfather is George Clay Day. You did the original pictures, taken in the Salem Cemetery in Attica, Fountain City, Indiana. Can you tell me what the inscription of Nancy Ann's marker says. The real question is this:
Is John's middle initial N or M on the grave markers.(Or in real life, for that matter). It is clearly N on John's marker, but not really clear on Nancy Ann's. If you would be willing to help me on this I would greatly appreciate it.

It would also be helpful to know what the total inscription is.

Most Respfully

#73466602 John M. Murphy - wondering if you are able to mention how you figured out his parents? They have eluded me and you have them on his findagrave. Any information you have about him, his parents, and his wife would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

I have some papers that show (years ago) some inheritance going to certain members of my family...but I can't make a connection of this lady to my family. I thought perhaps if you are from the Warren co./ Fountain co. area you might be able to help me figure it out??

The lady leaving the money was ETTA FIX. (died 1977)...#42778299

do you have any idea how or where she connects to the Simmerman line?? specifically my paperwork seems to bring in at NANCY HAMILTON SIMMERMON STORY #66515598; Stephen Simmerman ; and Samuel S.Simmerman #58326561...those are the recipients of the money, but the living members don't seem to know why they got it...less than $100 each.

Thought I'd give you something to think on
