Born in 1938, I retired in 2001 after 24 years with Cummins Inc., most recently managing industrial exhibits around the country. Before that I taught high school journalism for 17 years.|
I've lived in Indiana all my life and have been actively working on 12 lines of my family tree since 1959. Those lines are Rude (my father put the "h" in the name), Briner, Lambert, Perry, Magill, Campbell, Collins, Bess, Winkler, Story, Hawn, and Ames/Emms.

|bpojito105||RE: Catharine Collings Bess|
Oh my goodness, what a picture! I absolutely love it! Thanks for sharing. I'm trying to figure out what Catherine is holding. There was lots of esoteric symbolism in portraits of that era.
Grassy Cemetery is indeed a mess. I have at least eight confirmed ancestors buried there, and perhaps 11 more still in progress (Gillaspy and Tobias). Several years ago, a very gracious member at Uniontown Baptist volunteered to take pictures at Grassy for me, and said she nearly cried upon seeing how bad it looked.
|bpojito105||RE: Thank you!|
It's funny how things turn out sometimes. Please tell Linda thank you. And thank YOU for adding the photo to Mabel's memorial. Cheers!
Just one more-one more thing. . .did you ever find Catharine Bess?
I found a record of a Catharine Bess marrying Joseph Bohall on 31 Aug 1862 in, Jackson County Genealogical Society, Inc. (1998). Index to Marriage Records, Jackson County, Indiana, 1856 through 1920, Volume 1, A through K . Brownstown:JCGS, p.53.
|bpojito105||Steve Rider Photo # 96969216|
I forgot to ask if you would please do me another favor by adding Steve's photo to Madel Rider's memorial # 96969280.
I could of course copy and paste it myself, but then your name wouldn't be displayed as the contributor. You should receive on-screen credit for your generous contribution.
Thank you very much for the photo of Steve and Mabel's grave marker. It's absolutely perfect! Sharp, nice contrast, and well composed. This is my first photo request, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I was hoping Steve and Mabel were buried together, and this confirms it beyond a shadow of doubt.
Now I need to deal with Steve's birth year. It says 1893 on the marker, yet the US Census of 1900 and Voss Funeral Home records give November of 1892 as his birth date. Guess I'll have to do more digging.
Thanks again! This has made my day!
|Daniel Mock||Catherine Collings|
Catherine Collings was my 3rd great-grandmother. I was thrilled to find her photograph posted on your Find-a-Grave listing for her. Do you happen to know who the gentleman is with her in that photo? I suspect it might be her third husband, Joseph Bohall, whom she married in 1862 following the death of Elijah Bess. Also, you say that you are only "supposing" that she is buried in Grassy Cemetery in Jackson County. I would be very interested in knowing more about your reasoning for this. My own grandmother, Gladys L. Bess Heintz, spent half her life trying to locate Catherine's grave, but never succeeded. Mrs. Heintz died in 1973 believing Catherine was buried in the old Collings Cemetery near Dudleytown. I inherited my interest in genealogy from my grandmother, and so I am, of course, very interested in this family, as they are my direct ancestors. Any information you can add would really be appreciated. Thanks!
|Schuylar Crist||Thomas Collings died 1842|
Thomas Collings, who died in 1842, was born in 1760. He served alongside his brothers Zebulon and Spencer Collings and my 5th great-grandfather George Heinrich Crist under the command of General George Rogers Clark in 1782 during a campaign against the Shawnee Indians. The Collings brothers are my 5th great-grand uncles and their father is William Edward Collings who died in Nelson County, Virginia in 1787.
Found no entry for Catherine Bess in the Jackson County Historical Society publication, "Vernon Township Cemeteries, Jackson County, Indiana". This doesn't mean Catherine isn't buried in Vernon Township or Grassy Cemetery, only that JCHS has no record of it.

No, just entered as a random act of kindness.
|AMB||dau. of Israel RUDE, 1798-1871|
Question, please, regarding Israel RUDE (1798-1871), buried in Spurgeon Cemetery, Scott County, Indiana:
Do you know what became of Israel's daughter Elizabeth? She was born in about 1826 in Indiana. On January 20, 1842, in Scott County, Indiana, she married Zachariah HUFFORD.
They had three children:
John Harvey Hufford, b. abt 1844, Indiana;
Solomon Hufford, b. abt 1848, Indiana;
Israel Isaac Hufford, b. Oct. 1851, Van Buren Co., Iowa.
Elizabeth's marriage to Zachariah Hufford apparently ended in divorce. On the 1860 census, she is listed as "Elizabeth RUDE" and living with her father in Scott County, Indiana. She is listed on the census as "insane." However, in that time and place, especially for a woman, "insane" may not really have meant "insane."
I have no information for her after the 1860 census.
Thanks for any information that you may have and be willing to share.
