Bio and Links
Bio Photo Falls Cemetery is privately owned and was platted in 1861. It has expanded and grown to 67 acres situated on a beautiful, rolling hills landscape. Hundreds of pioneer and founding family members are interred, including those from the Hanna Cemetery relocated in 1907. Honored interred veterans include over 330 from the Civil War, plus hundreds from the War of 1812, Mexican-American and Spanish-American Wars, World Wars I and II, Korean conflict, Viet Nam and subsequent wars.

The Friends of Falls Cemetery was organized in August 2009 consisting of Wabash area residents who are largely descendants of the 13,000+ souls interred. It was officially sanctioned and its work approved and encouraged by the Wabash Cemetery Society, Inc. board of directors on November 17, 2009.

It is our goal to accurately and respectfully document the lives and relationships of those interred in Falls Cemetery. We further strive to present them in the best possible manner with biographies, histories and obituaries whenever possible, and will include plot locations and attractive tombstone photography. Additions and corrections to these memorials are welcome as are new participants in our group. Upon request, we will gladly transfer memorials to family members, and will give consideration to out-of-guideline relationships. Existing FindAGrave memorials may be (temporarily) transferred to us for research and photography.

RE: Worth family - Falls Cemetery
Upon much research, I have found that the parents of Ella Marie Kerr Worth are Jacob Kerr and Harriet Vandyne of Wabash Co., Indiana. I am wondering if the infant child buried there could possibly be Ella's child. Ella's death certificate states the death was caused by Uremic Poisoning due to pregnancy. I still have found no information on Annie, but i would possibly say she is a sister of Harry's. Have you found any info on Annie and if I may ask, how do u know she died from diabetes? Does the marker say so? Thanks for any help you may be able to offer me.

RE: e-mails #38832947
See the bottom of page 109 from "The Faunce Family History" by James Freer Faunce, which I sent you. Specifically...
"George W, son of Joseph and Mercy (Bartlett) Faunce, born about 1808 in New Hampshire. He married Anna_____; born in Pennsylvania in 1807. He lived in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Noble Township, Wabash County in 1850 and 1860; he was a carpenter."
Page 110 which I failed to send lists the children of George W and Anna Faunce as: Joseph B, Sophronia M; William W; Samuel B; George W; Cecelia J; Cyrena A.
This information matches everything on George's Memorial page.

RE: Thomas Edgar Sweetser
Sorry for the late response! I have only been to Wabash once, which is where I think the home was. But I don't know any thing other than it was Williams home where he raises his children.

You have him as a sibling to the Klum children. He has different parents, please see Memorial #39841441. This should be corrected immediately.

Thank you.

William L Tayor - Elizabeth Emery
William L Taylor (1894-1954) was not married to Elizabeth Emery (1827 to 1897). Also William Taylor did not have a son George W Emery, who you have born in 1855. 39 years before William Taylor was born. William did not live in Wabash, Indiana, he was from Memphis, Tennessee.
