Bio Photo “Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.”
~ William Gladstone




I have been tramping cemeteries for decades looking for evidence of lost relatives, so I know if you live far away it would be so much easier if someone close by would be willing to do it for you. Since most of my relatives are from Winona county, Minnesota and I am in Indiana, this is a great idea.
I have no problem with transferring management of memorials, just let me know.
First I find the readings online to photograph the stones in the same order to match up the illegible and missing ones, photographing a number at each row. Then I photograph whole cemeteries or sections, up to 1,000 in one day and enter row/section numbers as I upload them. I carry my bucket of tools: brush, pruning snips, spray bottle, stuff to clean and clear around stones. I will try to upload my backlog of some 3,000 photos this winter. If you run across a duplicate memorial, let me know so I can delete it. If you request a photo from an identified section that I have pictures for, I will find and post it. Most of my memorials were created from photographs, so if the picture is missing on one of my memorials, send me a note with the number and I will post the picture.
I have not found any online references to the MASSIVE Oakhill Cemetery in Plymouth, Indiana.
SO I have created and uploaded several spreadsheets from photographs and continue to add more. I'm guessing there are over 10,000 additional graves that are digitally undocumented. There are a few more daring gravers taking on this challenge. There may be some duplicates that slipped by and some that need editing. Dont hesitate to submit changes through the edit tab with corresponding memorial numbers. The numbers in the notes of the memorials are the photo numbers for that memorial. If I haven't gotten to your photo, submit a photo request with the section and photo number. I try to keep up with requests.

I have a virtual cemetery of the Gold Stars of Marshall County, Indiana. They are the WWI soldiers who died during their service. Check it out.

Possible there is a headstone for Sam's wife, Dora? It has been difficult to locate our ancestors due to a change in the spelling of their surname; Schweichard(t),Swigart,Swigert, Schweikert!! Many thanks.

According to my family tree, the picture is of Laura and Franks wedding, Laura is sitting in the chair, and her sister Nora and best man Robert Herman Theador are the other two in the picture. If you have any other information on that picture I would appreciate your input.

I just looked at my caption and realized that I got the marker pic from a cousin on my Merriman side. Bob Sheets, the head of the National Hurricane Center for many years.
Don't think he has an Ancestry tree, however he must also be a descendant on the Stoops line.

Good luck

Cathy
