|Bio and Links|
The last fourteen years I have been working on burial lists and photographing cemeteries in Tippecanoe County Indiana.
I've enjoyed adding them online to Findagrave. With help from several folks, were almost done with the 135 cemeteries on our list.
My List on Tippecanoe County Cemetries
My webpage shows my projects where I've restored a few cemeteries in this County.

I recorded the GPS locations on all I found and photographed in them, except for a handful of destroyed locations. You will find my overall photographs on 90% of Tippecanoe County sites here on Findagrave or on my pages below. Many are now buried below other photos.
For updates to my entries, PLEASE use the EDIT buttons. I will be happy to add your family links. You may add your own photographs or original obituaries and let me know about updating information through the Edit buttons
I am currently working on Greenbush, Springvale and St.Boniface cemeteries in Lafayette. Several people have helped to finish Ruth Neuman's 2003 project on Springvale. Thank you for you continued help with your photographs.
There are many errors in the records that were used or the old readings that reflect differently on the tombstones, obituary or other records. Please help all of us make information better by adding your gravestone photographs.
I will go back and delete dups for Springvale and Greenbush that were created before their duplicate system changed.
While your out in the cemeteries, take time to look for the handcarved rocks and homemade tombstones as they mark the graves of someones early ancestors. Handcarved tombstones
They may have just been passing through on thier way to the West. Please don't move them, but photograph them for record preservation. I've found several and usually do find handcarved and home-made stones too.
I'm grateful to Find-A-Grave for this site and opportunity to share the history. Our cemeteries are still distroyed everyday. So please take the time to contribute in your area if you can. It helps preserve family history for everyone and future generations who comes searching later.
