Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been "hooked" on genealogy since 2003 and am now traveling to visit the graves of family members located in Indiana and Illinois. Many of my postings ARE family members and I'd be happy to chat with anyone also interested in these families.

I have recently been involved in the reading and photographing of Calvary Cemetery here in NW Indiana. I will be happy to transfer any of those memorials to their families so do get in touch. However requesting them for the purpose of deleting them is NOT acceptable. Rest assured I will replace them so that they are not lost to future generations.

Robert Ponda, sr
Why do you add a person before they have passed away? You have gone thru the entire cemetery and posted every headstone and listed every person deceased or not. It impossible for anyone to add someone since you have done that years in advance. This doesn't seem fair or right.

RE: Armstrong/Wright Memorials
Hi and thanks for being in contact, unfortunately, I didn't send a copy of my request to myself, when I asked for the update. I thought a copy of the memorial would appear with the request. So, I can't say which memorial I was after. I'll have to check on this. I appreciate your willingness to make any changes. I am distantly related to the mother, Tennessee. Her children are my 1st cousin 3x removed. Thanks. I'll be back in touch when I figure this out. Cris

sad to know he did not have a headstone. yes, that would be kind of you to take a pic of his mothers headstone as you found out he was buried in her plot since he was cremated.

mother is: tressie mae minix dyer, 1926-1997

my thanks,
