I enjoy researching family history and going to old cemeteries. Some of the names I'm researching are: Armstrong, Bales, Bassett, Bruce, Clark, Cline, Cochran, Day, Drake, Frey, Handy, Hardy, Hart, Seifert, Shomo, Smith, Stalnaker, Taylor, and Walters.
I love genealogy. Whenever I'm at a cemetery looking for one of my ancestors, I take pictures of headstones that are nearby and hope that maybe their relatives will find them on here someday. Findagrave has really helped me in finding missing pieces in my family tree. I will gladly transfer a memorial to you if you're related.
Cochran Hello My grandma is Barbara Cochran. I was hoping I could get more information on the Cochran's I have a family tree. I would be interested any information. Ancestry tree Marano-Wiggins Samantha Marano Samantha.Marano@yhoo.com
RE: Owen & Minnie Prescott Thank you Angie: and yes that would be great if you would transfer Owen & Minnie. They are both STALEY descendants --- that family is one of those Morgan Co, Indiana families that originated in and around Randolph Co, North Carolina. My number is: 47324296
this is Joseph in Reno, Nevada. I hope you are fine and all is well.
I'm going to be in Indiana for a day in April and I plan to visit Floyd's and Hazel's grave. Thanks so much for your work on finding Floyd's.
Been working on the project! Wrote a 75 minute theatre musical about Floyd.. takes place on the night of the execution.. using a choir to portray the Methodist church choir in Indiana...
got standing ovations at each performance ( did 5 performances thus far)
didn't know how audiences would react.. but tears galore.. cheers.. ovations...
then I filmed a discussion panel show with my guests .. about the death penalty and about juvenile imprisonment in America... and we are editing about 5 scenes from the theatre show into the discussion
should be done in a week... and I'll make sure you can view it..
Floyd's story sure has been influencing people.. we had audiences with people from throughout the USA, Israel, Denmark, Thailand.. etc.. one performance was for 400 social workers from across the country at a national conference on social workers.. didn't know how such an audience would react.. but they were on their feet cheering before the final minute of the show and then many told us about their own tragic stories about juveniles in their families and the prison system
well.. at one show.. a woman who I never met before.. came to me and told me she had spent years researching Floyd's story.. and actually met his grandma... but what was surprising... is that the boy he was with when the shooting of the man took place.. that boy grew up and became a criminal.. but his son told the lady that before he died.. the guy told his son that Floyd didn't commit the crime for which he was executed for.. but that HE did it and Floyd took the rap ..
well.. was thinking of you... lost your email address... so the reason for contacting you via this site...
Charles F. Romans oops, mistake, his mother Nellie May Owens Romans wife of Frank W Romans is supposed to be buried in Holy Cross Cemetery Indianapolis Indiana. She died at age 26 possibly October 1924, I would appreciate a photo. Dates are not legible on her death certificate. Thank you!
