I am one of the many members of my family interested in Genealogy. As a little girl I enjoyed writing down all of my family members names and birth dates including cousins. I collected Funeral Cards and obits. I liked knowing everything. I started hardcore research in 2000 while living in Florida even though I was born and raised in Indiana. I am now back in Indiana and can further investigate my lines. My father has been researching prior to me for the last 40 or so years. I enjoy the interesting people I meet and the information that I find. I am a Mother of 3 and Grandmother of 6. Anyone wanting information on the lines that are directly linked to me can contact me through my message board here.I currently have about 27,000 names in my family tree, all connected to the Rock/Shockey, Loveless/Kerfoot, Thompson/Graham and Wilson/Hulett Lines which connect together through my grandparents. I am a descendant of John and Catherine McClellan Rock, Aaron and Nancy Sproul Gordon, Johann Cristoffel Schake [Shockey], John and Rachel Van Hook Loveless, George W Sr and Lucy Stith Kerfoot, William and Martha McClay Tippin and John H and Mary Long Sellers, Harrison and Mary Penrod Sparger, Jonathan B and Rebecca Reynolds Rice on my father's side and James and Eva Thompson Graham and Charles and Bertha Wilson Hulett on my mother's side. Most of the memorials that I have added are related to me somehow, however I have added a few Memorials for local Tippecanoe, Clinton, Boone, Benton and Warren Co, Indiana cemeteries. If you find a memorial that is from your line just ask and as long as I am not connected I will do transfers. To me its not about numbers...its about Family! I believe that everyone should be remembered...whether they have a tombstone or not. I would like to eventually mark my family graves that do not have markers, even if its a small engraved stone...just something that says "Hey I was here. I lived my life and now I am gone. Do not forget me".PS. The picture is me at about 3 months. I was the first born granddaughter to Ina Mae Graham Nydegger and my dress said "Grandmas Little Sweetheart"

RE: (George) Adam Shultz
I'm pretty sure it's 75 years. He was born 28 Feb 1789 and died 27 Jul 1789. That's 75 years and 5 months. Note that both numbers in question look similar--75 can look like 25 if worn down. Also a 5 can look like a 3 if worn.

(George) Adam Shultz
Could the inscription on Adam Shultz's tomb in Grantsville say

75yrs & 5 months


75yrs & 2months


This former would be consistent with a birth in February and death in July.

Has anyone ever tried putting tinfoil or shaving cream on the grave to read it more closely?

Thank you!

RE: Ed Cole
We may be talking about 2 different Ed Cole's then. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: Ed Cole and Millie
Hello I send you Ed Cole's memorial via e-mail. The link to his memorial is #127647190. I'm not sure if Millie is buried with him or in the same cemetery or not.

If you create a memorial for Ray Shockey, I will place a photo of his headstone on Find A Grave.
Notify me if you do. Leon

RE: Benjamin Redman
After I found your cenotaph for Benjamin Redman I created a hyperlink to it on his memorial page.

I just thought that adding some sort of note on your cenotaph stating not to link to this memorial, please see actual gravesite memorial for links....

Do you know who maintains the Grantsville Cemetery? I was hoping to contact them to see what records they have for the Adam Shultz family, my 4th great grandfather. Thank you!!
