Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in 1947 in Indianapolis, IN. Married with 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I've been doing genealogy research for 30 years, am now living in the midst of at least 6 counties in which my family and my husband's family have had connections and have already reconnected with many ancestors and descendants.
I'm an avid historian of American History, a member of the DAR through a very dedicated chapter in Crawford Co., IL and am very concerned about the destruction and disrepect shown to our pioneer cemeteries. I have completed pioneer cemetery restoration classes through the IN Hist. Soc. and, with my sister's help, have repaired and reset several headstones, including researching and reclaiming an abandoned family cemetery...The Burk Cemetery... in Adair Co.,KY. Death records and research proved at least 30 burials at the site. Only two headstones remain. With limited funds, I put together a memorial headstone and built a cemetery sign. The cemetery is now on state records.

The people buried in these cemeteries are us. They toiled, laughed, cried and struggled in adversities we will never know and adversities we can well relate to and from that, we can draw strength. Regardless of why we post their burial sites, they were also loved and respected by someone and deserve to be remembered. This site is purposely set up so that we can SHARE our info, not for self glorification based on our contribution.

I would hope part of the ulitmate goal is to show respect for the human race, living or dead. Be assured that if I post one of your ancestors or your mother or father or child, however they are related, I have absolutely NO reason to keep it under my control if you want to maintain it and will gladly transfer it immediately. I DO NOT OWN the information I have chosen to share on this website. After all, if it's someone from whom you are genetically descended, you are bound to feel a responsibility for them. They are YOUR Family and YOUR loved ones. And I'm very glad that I helped you find them.

Jennifer, I walked the Summit Lawn Cemetery with Mike Winn, the owner/caretaker today. He informed me that the cemetery actually has several cemeteries within the boundary lines. The Storers are in the old Pleasant View portion. William doesn't have a headstone, and Mr. Winn doesn't think he ever will. William is buried to the right of his wife, and the roadway is next to him. I placed a photo on your memorial showing where he's buried. I hope it meets with your approval. Have a good day.

RE: Old Hogan Hill Baptist
Jennefer...can you double check the Find A Grave # for Isaac? When I copied and pasted the number, it came up "Alice Cady"...so I didn't connect. Take a look and send it again...in the meantime I will see if I can find Isaac and make the connection anyway....and yes, Florida is GREAT!

RE: Gee Cemetery
Dear Jennefer,
Thanks for the heads up on the Gee Cemetery. This is my husband's side of the family. But...I love family, history, and genealogy. I am going to be updating the Gee genealogy. I only have one wife for Jesse, but familysearch website shows him with another wife, a Milly Abram. I appreciate you trying to help clean up the Gee Cemetery. If I did not have my husband to care for, and lived closer, I would love to help. I hope that you can get some help with it. God bless you, Sally
