Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Jim and his wife Marilyn

Too bad no one seems to know the years on this guy's tombstone. We could figure out the birth date if we knew. I have a date calculator in my Family Tree Maker Program that figures it for me. I can read the 4 months. I don't suppose you have access to that info.
This is in Spencer Cem. in Kouts, Porter Co., IN.

Thanks, Carolyn

This is on my father's (Mounts) side of the family

Found a few relatives under your care :)
I do not manage mass memorials, only collecting family.
Would you mind transferring them so I can link members and edit info. Thanks so much! ~Nicole ID #48229452

Re: Neff Cemeteries
Any chance we could get the two Neff Cemeteries combined and duplicates eliminated?

Allison Family
Willis and Ellen (Brickley) Allison are my great grandparents. I was very happy to see your posting at find a grave. Are you in any way related? If you wish, I could add additional information for them.
Thank you. Pam
