Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Kiel (pronounced "Kyle") and I've been doing genealogy since 2009. I never quite understood my grandmother's fascination with taking pictures of headstones and filling notebooks upon notebooks with family information until I took up the hobby myself. Now I find myself not only researching my side of the family, but carrying on the work of my grandmother as well.

Most of my research at this point is concentrated on Hamilton, Boone, and Vanderburgh counties in Indiana. I've started to add and clean-up records for Carmel Cemetery and Carmel Cemetery (Old). If I have added one of your family members or ancestors and you'd like me to transfer the memorial to you, please let me know... I'll be glad to do it!

AKA HoosierGenealogist: I also contribute to Find A Grave using the account "HoosierGenealogist." I have found it so much easier to have one account for my own family memorials (this one) and a completely separate account for the cemeteries that I help transcribe.

William Hicks (1866-1948)
I am researching the information/corrections you sent me, because I show different parents. My line is his wife's family - McCoy.

I read what I posted for the obit, but I see other information, questioning it. Since I have nothing about this obit in my database, I may have just copied and pasted it with out reading it...Bad on my part, but the process I use currently is different. As you can see this memorial was created a long time ago.

If you have any proof, I would be happy to look at it before I make any changes. I do agree on April, 1866, and I see on the death certificate the different county for his birth. BUT we do know that sometime informants can have incorrect information.

Please feel free to contact me through the suggestion option on his or any one of my memorials.

Thanks in advance!

your bio
I just read your bio and think it's wonderful what you are doing and am sure your Grama is so proud that you've taken over :) If you happen across any Galbreaths in the Boone County area I hope you find Elijah!.. He is my 3rd Great Grandfather and I cannot find any information on him after his marriage to Rebecca...I have lots on her lol but he is definitely a mystery! Have never even found a death record for him. Happy hunting/graving Kiel!

Crammond transfer
Hi Kiel:

I have transferred Roxanne Crammond's memorial to you. I did have her obituary and I did add it, in case you didn't have a copy. Hope this meets with your approval.
