|Bio and Links|
We are volunteer members of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society Cemetery Committee working together to bring the past to life.|
We walk the cemeteries and photograph the memorials and tombstones. We cannot research your genealogy for you. Please contact Vigo County Public Library for obituaries; they also have online death records and marriage information at www.vigo.lib.in.us (Special Collections) Genealogy and Local History.
We have had several memorials transferred to us for the Cemetery Committee to maintain. Thank you!

Full Name: Charles William Payton
Date of Birth: 19 Jul 1893 in Vigo Cty., Indiana
Date of Death: 12 Feb 1968 in Terre Haute, Vigo, Indiana.
I know he was married twice - first wife was Helena "Lena" Fischer who died at age 27. Is second wife was Anna Louise Balfe whom he married on 02 Feb 1922. While I've not found the record, his death certificate indicates he was divorced from her.

Name at Birth: Helena "Lena" Fischer
Date of Birth: 24 Nov 1891
Married Charles W Payton on 2 May 1916 in Cook County, Illinois.
Her parents are William Fischer, Memorial 19739373 and Mary Sullivan.
Lena died at age 27. Her death certificate leads me to believe she had congenital heart defects. I don't believe she had any children with Charles.

Thank-you so very much for the transfer....Donna

This appears to be a duplicate of Find A Grave #90101859...the only difference is in the spelling of the last name. The second record was added after yours, however, it does have more information.
I have seen the last name spelled both ways on various documents and am not sure which one is legally correct. Should I transfer the new information to your original record and then ask the second contributor to delete their record or would you concede to deleting your original record?
Just need some direction here.
Thank you for the lovely work that you do!

Thank you for the nice work you do posting pictures of my ancestor's graves in your area. The portraits are a real treat for me because I can put a face to those I have been researching and don't possess photos for. Additionally thank you for processing the edits ās I link all these people to their family members. Also do you mind if I use any biography information you may have provided for my family tree with proper source citations of course. Thank you again for all your hard work!

Hello, I am questioning the spouse you have listed for Elijah Henry. You have Mariah Williams Henry Find A Grave #135553228. I believe it should be Judah Henry Find A Grave #47948709. I can find no record of a marriage between Elijah and Mariah Williams.
My information comes from the obituary for one of Henry's sons. Judy is shown as the mother. The son is Robert S. Henry and he is buried in Normanda Cemetery, Tipton County. You can view the obit if you will go to the online listing for Normanda. I have also checked the various census reports.
Please get back to me on this at your convenience. You may email me at email@example.com if you have questions.
