My future mother-in-law introduced me to genealogy about December 1961 and I have been hooked ever since.|
Where I live in northern Indiana the acid rain is rapidly disolving the inscriptions on the old limestone tombstones.
In 1963 when I was discharged from the army I visited the family cemetery and walked down a row of stones and wrote down the inscriptions, but Today you can hardly read them.
I enjoy finding and recording stones that are weathered or broken.
For many of the young children this is the only record that they existed.
I am now retired, so I have time. If I can be of help, please write or call.

Thank you so very much for the photo of my great-grandmothers headstone located in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Gary Indiana. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife at the LC Public Library. People like you and your wife don't get enough thank-you's for all the hard work you do. Much appreciated here!

Thank you so much for the tombstone photo. John is my uncle.
Could you transfer both their memorials to me so I can add additional information.

Jim, Thanks so much for the transfer, it is appreciated more than you know! I also sent one to you for wife, Mabel. If you wouldn't mind transfering her memorial to me as well, I would be so greatful. I will take good care of both of them...be assured! Happy New Year to you and yours...Debbie
Thank you for the find of that Hufford gravestone at Wagoner Cemetery. Much appreciated. I had the info that the children existed from the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY. However, the book simply listed them as children of that couple and dead by the time the book came out (1909). Except for the gravestone that you found, there is no other info on those two children. They died between censuses.

Thank you for creating the memorials of two
missing family members. I have been able to link them to their respective parents, children, spouse, etc.
|Cathleen Sheibley Miller Kalin||Jacob Emerson|
Thanks Jim for the transfer. I will take good care of his memorial. I may have more updates for you in the future.
|Cathleen Sheibley Miller Kalin||Jacob M Emerson in Apple Creek|
I was excited to see this memorial for Jacob M Emerson. He was born in 1802 in
Maryland. He was married to Elizabeth 'Lib' Merriman 1805 1877. As far as my
research shows, Elizabeth should also be there.
Did you see the stones or get the ifo from another source?
I am a Merriman descendant and have been doing research for some time. I believe
all of the Emersons are related that you listed. I will get back to you with the
Jacob and Elizabeths children were as follows:
Sarah Emerson 1826-1918 *buried apple creek
John Pretzman Emerson 1827-1901 *buried apple creek
William B "Milton" Emerson 1830-1896 *bur in Whitley Indiana *
Elizabeth Emerson 1836
Harriet S Emerson 1839-1870 m.Solomon Franks
Mary Ellen Emerson 1840-1928 unmarried
Amanda B Emerson 1842-? m. Isaac Jameison
If Jacob is not a relative I would love to have his transfer so I can add this info.
PS I previously sent you this info via the edit with no response.

Clustered with Charles and Almeda was Richard E 1872-1922 if you establish him I'll attach a picture
Thank you for your time in photographing the Shearer grave for me.

Thanks for the photo of Willie's grave. I would like to request that the Kostbade memorials be transferred to me (if your not related).
