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.

William Franklin Lines
William Franklin Lines (Memorial #43617348) is incorrectly shown as the son of Conrad and Martha Lines. He is actually the son of Henry Lines (ca1817-ca1859) and Margaret "Peggy" Sailors (daughter of Michael Sailors). The obituary on his Find A Grave memorial page correctly states that his father was Henry Lines, but incorrectly says his mother was Betty. William Franklin Lines appears in the 1850 census in Grant County with his parents Henry and Margaret Lines, and with his siblings Marshall and Ann, which agrees with the siblings identified in his obituary. His father apparently died before 1859, when his mother married George W. Miller. William Franklin Lines and his siblings Marshall and Ann "Lyons" appear in the 1860 census in Grant County in the household of their mother Margaret (Sailors)Lines Miller and their step-father George Miller.

A Franklin Lines does appear with Conrad and Martha Lines in the 1860 census in Wabash County, but he is listed as a "laborer", along with another man. This could be a duplicate census entry for William Franklin Lines. Although he was born in 1841 he does not appear with Conrad and Martha in the 1850 census.

Further evidence that William Franklin Lines is not the son of Conrad and Martha Lines is provided in the "Elijah Hackleman Scrapbook" on page 68 which says that Conrad and Martha "never had but one child a son, who was killed by falling out of a small tree that he was climbing, when about 15 years of age". This son would apparently be the John H. Lines (1839-1848) that is shown as their son on the Find A Grave page for Lieut. Conrad H. Lines.

I'm hoping you can correct the parents of William Franklin Lines. Thank you for all the wonderful work you have done on Find A Grave.

Correction for John Franklin Filbert
the information you have about the 1860 census is incorrect. This is not the same John F. Filbert.

John F. Filbert can be found in the 1860 census living in Ohio under the last name of Fribbelt

He is also listed in the 1850 census living in Lebanon County PA.

Just an FYI

Infant Porter ?
Why do you say my request for a correction is fraudulent? I am a real person and made a legitimate request to correct the database that is The database will only be as good as the information entered. Most contributors use Unknown for those infants that are just that not named or found in a decayed state.

Gertrude and Ernest Delong Family Member
Hello, my name is Kevin Cantrell and I happened across the memorials for Gertrude Horn (48981276) and Ernest Delong (46228613). Gertrude and my grandfather, Junior Music were first cousins. Her mother and my great grandfather were siblings. I was wondering if it would be possible to maintain the memorials for Gertrude and Ern? If so, I'd really appreciate it and thank you so much for making the pages for them. They were wonderful people.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use the obituary information on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.
