RE: Benjamin H. Logan - Windsor Cemetery
Dear BAF, The Logan and Tandy families have been a struggle for me to sort out. There are many questions with those families that I have never been able to answer. Ben Logan has been tough to learn anything about. I BELIEVE he must be buried in the Windsor area, but, truthfully have no PROOF of it. In the past, I have had some luck in linking people to cemeteries in the area where people have died and have had other Gravers take an interest in the person and do a search for that person, sometimes finding them where I guessed they were and sometimes in a neighboring cemetery and letting me know.
I am afraid, like so many other graves from the middle 1800's, that Benjamin's grave may no longer even be marked. I have found definitive evidence of many burials from the early to mid 1800's, in which the graves were no longer marked, that the cemetery offices had no record of. I am afraid that we may never know where Benjamin Logan's mortal remains were laid, unless we can come up with a definitive date of death and then an obituary.
I wish you luck on your trip. If you learn anything more about Ben and his family, I would love to hear about it. Truthfully, even the combined family seen in the census records don't match up well. Are you a descendant of Ben's? If you can tell me anything more about him or his family, I would love to hear about it.
Again, Good luck on your trip. Sincerely, Baxter

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. Her grave is unmarked. This was confirmed by the cemetery staff, as well as the exact location.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when the grave is unmarked.

Best regards,

RE: Carl and Lena Dallinger
Well, my research shows that they are definitely NOT the same cemetery and that Uncle Carl and Aunt Lena are in fact NOT buried in the same cemetery. However, I am waiting to find out the "why" of that!! Will let you know what else I learn....

RE: Carl and Lena Dallinger
I have posed the question to my Indiana Dallinger cousins. Will let you know what I learn from them.

RE: Laura Jane Cole Freeman Owen
As for visiting cemeteries to take photos, over the years I've learned to be prepared for any eventuality. Finding a stone covered in multiflore rose and poison ivy once, I've learned to take heavy gloves and clippers; horribly dirty stones have taught me to take a hand broom and rag as well as water to gently rinse and wipe off any dirt; the stone that has sunken down so you can almost but not quite read the dates at the bottom have led to me taking a trowel (and praying the soil is not hard!); I've learned in the forums here on findagrave that a flashlight pointed not at, but from the side of a stone along its front can make seeming illegible etching readable and that a spray bottle of water on some surfaces can do the same (while being careful to take a photo before and then again after spraying since sometimes the water makes things worse rather than better); often times I want to take notes of what I see in the moment at the cemetery, but that takes more hands than I have, so I take along a small tape recorder as a well. All of those items go in an old backpack, though I've been rethinking that lately, trying to come up with something better.
Good luck on your venture and happy hunting!

RE: Laura Jane Cole Freeman Owen
My grandmother was a Cole--a descendant of William Newton Jasper, Laura's brother. All of my information comes from her. Unfortunately, I have nothing further on either of Laura's husbands. Sorry I can't be of any help.
