Bio and Links
Bio Photo Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

I have enjoyed walking in cemeteries and looking at headstones my entire life. I truly enjoy working on accurately listing folks grave sites. Sometimes it is the only link in finding a relative. I live in Morgan County, Indiana and also have significant family in Wabash, Fulton and Kosciusko, Indiana counties.

I will gladly transfer management of any memorial under Find A Grave Guidelines. Just let me know. Only requests using the edit tab with familial documentation will be considered.

RE: Charles Henry Hooker
Oh also there was an article in the Martinsville Daily Reporter Nov 8, 1920 that told of what happened and that the body was taken to his home. (word in the family is that he was not killed from the fall, but from a hatchet in the back of his head). Then on Nov 11, 1920, another article telling of a Jap Miller being appointed to Henry's estate. The fall occurred on the property of a Henry Hite. Both Jap Miller and Henry Hite are buried in Brooklyn cemetery.

Charles Henry Hooker
I am looking for my great great grandfathers grave. I know Charles Henry Hooker is at Brooklyn Cemetery, but I cannot find Henry Hooker who is supposed to be there. Did you find it? Did you photograph all graves there?

Hello. I just uploaded a photo onto memorial 103644947. The memorial had text indicating his service in the U.S. Army and that his rank was Major. According to the photo and the military marker, his rank was Corporal. Just fyi - you might want to just remove the text? Thanks!

Hello You added a picture of his US stone from Bluff Creek Cemetery to his memorial in France. I created a memorial for him in Bluff Creek and was wondering if you would consider posting your picture from that cemetery to his memorial there? Please see memorial 137367859. I have a message into Findagrave to mark the Bluff Creek one as a cenotaph.

Thank you!
