Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Cleo Metcalf I was born November 22 1937, in Howard county Indiana. I have lived around Galveston Indiana all my life. And I have lived in Galveston from 1958 until now. I graduated from Northwestern High School in 1956. I married Beverly Downhour in Galveston Indiana Cass Co.on Oct. 10 1958. She lived in Galveston and graduated from Galveston High School in May 1958. We have 1 daughter, we have one grandson, we have one great grandaughter, I have entered the Galveston cemetery in findagrave so people can find their ancestors. Some of it is from The Old Richardville Publication. It was compiled by Betty Zane [Darland] Tucker.And taken from Galveston cemetery records and plat books Through 1995 with and Addendum from 1996 to 1997 and from obituaries from the Kokomo Tribune and the Peru Tribune and Phros Tribune and from the Galveston cemetery records. And also information that I have been emailed. Thank you for checking. You might find something wrong if you do email me and I will be happy to correct it. This is all the names that I recorded from The Galveston cemetery book Old Richardville Publication and it is finally up to date as of 2010 I have now put pictures of most of the grave stones from Galveston cemetery on findagrave. I have no problem transfering memorials if it is not my family. email

Thank You for the beautiful headstone photo of Sarah and Bert Cook, I am also wondering if it would be okay for me to use your photo in my online family tree.(I would of course give you photo credit). Thank you for your time and trouble.

I am curious about the grave site for a little girl named Edna Grace Shaffer....she is in the Galveston cemetery # 20046029. She was born 1911 and died 1916...but the info said J A McClain died 5 years I was curious about the connection to the names. I am researching my family from INDIANA named Shaffer..and when I see a child's grave with no parents or siblings mentioned...I try to find someone to connect to the child. Thanks!

Hello Cleo,

Thank you for all your wonderful work and for the photo of Ella's tombstone. Would you mind if I put a copy of it in my on-line tree?

If not ok, I will not post it.

Emmett E. Swafford # 62161799
Hello Cleo,

I wanted to point out to you that the above name, Emmett E. Swafford, is not the right name for that marker. If you look closer you will notice that at the top of the gravestone it reads: Wife of Emmett H. Swafford.

So, I want to let you know that his wife’s name is, Margaret (Becknell) Swafford. The date is correct for the memorial, just the name is wrong.

Margaret Becknell is the 2nd marriage of Emmett E. Swafford #13067644.

Emmett E. Swafford 1st wife was Florence A. (Stanley) Swafford # 13068238

Thank you very much for your dedicated work to helping people find their families.

I transferred this back to you so you could delete it. It is a duplicate memorial. Even if you transfer it to me, I still cannot delete it because I did not create it.
Memorial #19315696 needs to be deleted by you.

I goofed, I need to have you transfer Marie Lillie Guy Logan back to me. I put the wrong parent on her memorial. Thanks for letting me get this information on these memorials.
