|Bio and Links|
My name is Nadine and I have been doing genealogy for many years. My mother's side is from Wisconsin via Germany, Russia, and Eastern Europe (Hoeppner and Kosbiel). While my dad's side is from Wisconsin and Iowa by way of England, Norway, and Germany (Westwick, Coles, Frost, Aumiller, Kramer). I live in Indianapolis, so if I can be of any help for local records, feel free to contact me.|
You may notice on a lot of my photos, especially the more recent ones, I like to take photos as if the person were actually standing at the grave. I want people to see the surrounding area so they can also see where their loved one is buried. Some cemeteries are quite beautiful and I just want to show people there's more to look at than just the stone on the ground. A picture is worth a thousand words. I've only had one complaint by someone who couldn't see the cemetery for all the gravestones.
When I take a photo of an unmarked grave, most often I write something in the comments. So be sure to look there if the photo is just grass.
And...if it is a large plot, I usually take a photo of all the graves that look like they should be together in that plot and I write all the names in the comments.
####Please read the COMMENTS####
I enjoy volunteering and taking photos for others. If you would like to copy the photos and use them elsewhere, for instance on ancestry.com or another genealogy website, I only ask that you give me credit for taking the photo. I don't know how many times I have seen photos on ancestry that were taken by me or originally posted by me, but my name is not attached to the photo. It's very frustrating and hurtful because of the time I have volunteered and someone has just stolen it as their own. So be nice...and give me credit.
Have a Great Day!

|jim jones||RE: Chappell photos|
Hi Nadine,Turns out Helen wasn't the one I was looking for. Her maiden name was Martz,so that is probably her parents next to her. Now I need to try to find out who her husband was and was he from the Chappell family I'm following........Jim
|Tanya Whited Sweet||Carl Storey|
Thank you for your suggestion. Very interesting
|jim jones||Chappell Photos|
Hi Nadine, I just found a newspaper article about the wedding of Eugene Brooks Chappell and Emily Almedia Gilmore in 1913. So you were right, Emily was Eugene's wife. Thanks for the photos, Jim
|Wendy Guion||RE: Nero Hollingsworth|
I didn't see the comments. I will go back and look. Thanks. Most of the Hollingsworths to whom my husband is related are buried at Bethel and North Liberty both in Indianapolis. The other family he has at Crown Hill are the Hales and most are buried in the one plot with one big stone and no identifiers.
|Ronald Bicknese||Orman graves|
Thank you for the photos of the two Orman graves, plus the listing of the unmarked graves!
I wish you had come up with a birth date for Andrew Orman! The photo showing the dates for Mary Orman and they are one year off from the birthdate I have for her, so it could be the couple I'm looking for! Have a Great Holiday!!! I've been told that is one large cemetery, so Thank You for searching them out and photographing them!

|KENDA CORNELL||Picture of Mary Klentschy Grave|
Mary was my great aunt and the only sister who made it past 20 so that was so nice of you, also was able to find her family grave pictures too.
she had 2 other sisters cloris and Kathrine. again thank you so much. Our Klentschy name is now gone, so finding the History is very important to me

It isn't necessary to retake the photos.
I know how large Crown Hill is and is really a pretty cemetery.
My husbands family, Ellenberger, is buried there.
Thank you again.
