Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from Chicago and now live in Northwest Indiana. I travel across the state of Indiana for work, so I try and find cemeteries along the way. I have family in Fayette Co, Alabama. I started out by adding the names of family members, and now add as much as I can, hoping that it will help someone who is looking for their family.

Any More Info on George Yurkanin
I'm originally from Cal City and my family settled in Northwest Indiana from Europe. I'm curious if you have any further inforamtion on your George Yurkanin listing (St. Nicholas Cemetery in Hammond). My grandfather who passed away a couple years ago was also called George Yurkanin and also lived in Whiting. Just curious if you have any more info to see if the two families may be related. My grandmother thought there were other Yurkanins in Whiting who were cousins of my grandfather's. Appreciate your help.

Estle Aldridge memorial
Hi Sabrina, I found your grandad's memorial on the online part of Find A Grave. It was good to finally see someone that I knew on their online memorials. First time ever. I enjoyed reading about him from his memorial.
I remember Mr Estle and Mrs Emma coming to Pea Ridge to vote, usually having their daughter with them. I used to work at the polls.

Robert Bowman
Please put the following in the obit section of his memorial page. Thank you in advance Deb Bruni.

Robert Bowman was 15 and on his way to his first day of work as a caddy at Woodmar Country Club when he walked into the path of a westbound train on Broad Street. Witnesses say he apparently did not see the train approaching possible because an eastbound train directly in front of him had just passed by. The Engineer of the Erie-Lackawana train, H. C. Lee, 62 of Huntington, IN said he did not see the boy until it was too late to stop. Robert was killed instantly when struck by the train at 7:15 a.m. the train, traveling at a speed of 40 – 45 miles an hour was bound for Chicago from Hoboken, NJ.
Survivors include parents, Lillian (step-father George) Milne, sister Dona Bowman; brother Jules Bowman; step-brothers Donald and George Milne all at home, and Ronald Milne, airman third class, Barksdale, LA; paternal grandmother Mrs. Anna Bowman, Hammond; maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Armand LaCouture, Lowell MA.
Robert was a member of the Griffith Methodist Church and was a student at Griffith High School.

Information from The Hammond Times July 11 pg. 1 and July 12 pg. B-3.l

A Tribute to Robert Bowman from the Officers of the Class of 1964 posted on the Griffith High School Alumni Facebook page by Sandra Mack on Feb. 13, 2014

As we, the student body of Griffith High School, gaze over the streets of town, the Scherwood Club and elsewhere, we find a face missing, a face of one who meant a lot to many of us.
We can hear that certain laugh. Hear it and know it will never reach our ears again, only our hearts.
Bob was a credit to his school, a credit in the sense that all who knew him were filled with fun the minute they saw him.
It seems we can do so little now for a person that did so much for us.
All who knew him will say Bob was one of Griffith High School’s finest students and the finest friend anyone could have.

RE: Charles Jackson Smith
I am not a descendant of Charles Jackson Smith. My husband is a descendant of the George Smith of Frederick County, Maryland. His descendant, Daniel Smith migrated to Stark County, Ohio where the family remained for a couple centuries. I don't see Charles Jackson Smith anywhere in the family tree. It doesn't sound like I can be of any help, but let me know if I can.

RE: Vinnie Bell Mills Morring
Vinnie is the daughter of George Washington Mills born 1869 and Fannie Elizabeth Gray born 1873, all are buried in Madison Co. Alabama. I did go and add her parents to her page. I don't know how your Robert Mills is connected to George. George's father is John Fletcher Mills born 1844 in TN died 1914. Might be a connection somewhere just got to keep looking.

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

I have corrected a typo in the posting I provided for you for members of the Ball family on several of the Ball posts. I had used the word "sisters" instead of "daughters" when referring to the daughters of B.L. and Sallie Indiana Hayes Ball. I left off Claude Ball, and he has been added to the corrected version.

If you are kind enough to make the correction or addition to the site, I would appreciate you using this version on the listing for those individuals buried in this cemetery who are listed below.

This is what it should have read. Several of these children are buried in the Shane Cemetery as well as BL's second wife, S.E. Ball and his first wife, Sallie.

Broomfield Leander (B.L.) Ball and his wife Sallie Indiana Hayes Ball, were married in Giles County, Tenn., March 2., 1873. Their sons were John Hugh "Jehu" Ball, 1877-1933, Rufus Tolbert Ball, 1873-1952, Bascum Texas "Bass" Ball, 1878-1957, Thomas Larimore, 1886-1955, Claude Ball, 1884-1953, and Willie Mack Ball, 1889-1951. Their daughters were Cora Lee Ball Carvell, 1881-1956, Anna Rebecca Ball Green, 1892-1960, and Joseph Ethel Ball Binkley, 1895-1923. B.L. and Sallie are buried in the Shane Cemetery in Culleoka, Maury County, Tenn. Sallie was born in Granville County, N.C., and moved to Giles County, Tenn., as a small child. Sallie was the daughter of Stephen Hayes and Rebecca Puryear Hayes, both of Granville County, N.C. Stephen's father was Simeon Hayes and his mother was Mary Hester. Rebecca's father was Robert Harmon Puryear and her mother was Rebecca ?. Broomfield was born in Giles County, Tenn., and was the son of John D. Ball, a native of North Carolina, who was the son of John Ball, who brought his family to Giles County in the 1830s. Leander's mother, Rhoda Carpenter Ball, was the daughter of Hensley Carpenter and Rhoda Mayes Carpenter, both of Amherst County, Va., who came to Giles County, Tenn., before 1820. Rhoda Mayes' father was Robert Mayes (mother was Elizabeth ?). Hensley's father was Benjamin Carpenter (mother was Mary ?).

B.L. Ball Shane Cemetery
I see you have used my photo of Broomfield Leander Ball and his wife Sallie Indiana Hayes Ball (my ancestors) that I posted as though it is a photo of Ella Ball. This is a family photo that hung on the wall of Sallie and Broomfield's daughter's home until her death. It is now privately owned by my cousin. I shared this for accuracy, and now it is improperly linked. Broomfield Leander Ball was born March 5, 1851 and died Nov. 7, 1928. He married Sallie Indiana Hayes on March 2, 1873, in Giles County, Tenn., where he was born. Sallie was born in North Carolina in Dec. of 1854. She died Jan. 17, 1918. They had nine children. This photo of them was made the same day they had a family portrait made with all of their children, including my great grandmother, Cora. Please correct this.
