Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Indianapolis, IN but was raised in southern Indiana. Cemeteries have been great tools in finding our ancestors. I love the Find A Grave site and have found many missing links here.

I try to take photos of older graves knowing that they are often destroyed by either the elements or sadly, vandalism. As I photograph graves, I always try to remember the life of the person buried there. If I have a memorial to your ancestor, please contact me for a transfer. I'll gladly do that even if they are a distant relative as I know how important each name is in our own family trees.

I live close to Crown Hill cemetery and can take grave photos when I am able to get the time to get out. You can reach me by email at user name jphilgen, the server is

Thank you for his link to his spouse. I've linked them and also added their marriage record and linked him with his parents.

I just created this one and transferred it to you, since you manage his father's.

His obituary states he was interred at Fairview Cemetery, but you added his memorial to Memorial Park Cemetery. I will call the cemetery today to confirm. Thank you.

Mr. Phillips, where in the world did you locate this obituary?? I have contacted Willard Library in Evansville and the library in Vincennes and they could never locate this!!! I have been told he committed suicide, and this obituary describes an illness. Now that drastic move makes a bit more sense. THANK YOU!!

I see you have provided the info for a bio for Mr. Greene #86324321. If he is any relation to you, I would like to speak with you further. I believe I have found additional family members of his in Lancaster, Erie Co. New York. You can follow the info I have gathered through the memorial for Alice Greene-Brown #130693719. Hope it helps!
