Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 (Special Collections) Genealogy and Local History.

We have had several memorials transferred to us for the Cemetery Committee to maintain. Thank you!

Elizabeth 'Betsy' Copple Gaskins
Find A Grave Memorial# 37745169

Sorry, but her birth date appears to be incorrect. Based on the headstone being accurate as to the date year/month/date after her date of death = she was born 6 September 1805.

I've found this site calculator to be of a big help in determining the actual date of birth - that is assuming the stone-carver was not in error.

Thanks so much for the continuing transfers. I'm about two-thirds through my biggest family, the Wrights, with many more smaller families still to go. I think you may hear from me again when I get to the Ashcrafts.

Over the coming years as I work my way back through and add the Bios, it will be so much easier to be able to add them directly to all the pages that so many people have been kind enough to transfer to me. For those that I have to send as SACs, I'll have to keep copies then check back in 30 days, and if they haven't been added I'll then need to forward them to Edit. That's a lot of extra work for a lot of people, which I'm hoping to avoid as much as possible.

Orville Mitchell (1905-1910)
The findagrave page for Orville Mitchell(1905-1910) in Riverside Cemetery shows that his parents are John R. Mitchell (1859 - 1927) and Melinda Abernathy Mitchell (1863 - 1952). However, I believe his real parents are John L. Mitchell (1884-1940) and Jeannett Mitchell (1889-1956), buried in Hobart Cemetery in Hobart, Indiana. In the 1910 census, there is a "John, Jennett, and Orville Mitchel" who reside in Clinton, IN on South Fifth Street, which matches the included news article on the page. John Mitchell, Orville's father, would be my 2 times great-grandmother's brother. I appreciate the work you all do. Thanks!

Wow what a wonderful coincidence that I am hooking up the Cox children to their parents Robert and Mary this AM, at the same time you are adding the one child I was not sure was on Find A Grave.

I am sure my aunt's family is smiling now. They have their baby back with them. I must have been very hard to leave him behind in Indiana, when the rest of the family moved to CA.

Thank you for all of the time and energy that you and your organization put into uploading information into Find A Grave. You are treasures to those of us that are genealogists and to the famililes alike! I could not do the work I do, without your invaluable help from across the country.
