Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries.

I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.

Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.

Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

RE: Mary A. Cuney
I've tried and every time I loaded it it went sideways. Happened with 4 or 5 of them.

Jobs Family
I am looking for the father of my great, great, great grandfather William Jobs m. to Julia A Sommers. I was wondering if you had any additional information on these two people? I have found both of them on Find a Grave Site which has been wonderful.
Thank you

1872 newspaper clipping
Thank you very much! I took the liberty of copying it and posting it on Solomon Koontz, James Mills, and Isaac DeLong's pages. If I feel better tomorrow, I will look for others that need it posted. Again - Thanks.

your 3xs ggrandfather Theodore H Bergmann

Do you know what town Theodore Bergmann was from? I am wondering if maybe he is related to Heinrich Arend Bergmann #94245251, also in Mercer County Ohio. Born in about 1773 in Damme/Steinfeld Germany.

Miller edit
I submitted an edit for Rachel Miller (Clear Creek Cemetery) and just wanted to let you know the source is the Indiana Works Progress Administration "Indiana Deaths 1882-1920. Doesn't matter the font on those headstones, those 3's and 5's are always trouble. Thanks, LG

Look up Etna Green Cem Ind.
Hi Sheryl,
Thanks for quick correction. I also notice that there is only one left with Silveus (Laura N Silveus) You already have Laura N Silvius. You may want to go back and double check at Etna Green Cem. There are few duplicate on Silvius. One member has photo of gravestone but your is not. I suggest you take a look and see for yourself then you may have to delete it.
