Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries.

I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.

Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.

Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

Christian Lantz Jr., Hannah Lantz and Lydia Lantz
Have you seen a large plaque in Leo Memorial Park with the names of the people whose graves were moved there from the Schwartz Road Cemetery in the 1950's?

Three of Christian Lantz's children are buried there and their names are engraved on the plaque: Christian, Hannah and Lydia. They all died in the early 1870's.

Can you put them on find-a-grave?

Reuben Bitler - Catholic Cem - Ft Wayne
You have a memorial for a Reuben O Bitler (119931476) listed in Catholic Cemetery in Fort Wayne with a note he was removed from Lafayette and death date of May 23, 1923. The records I received from the Tippecanoe County Historical Association genealogy library list his death as April 22, 1932 in one of their headstone reading indexes with a note he was moved to Ft Wayne. I also have notes indicating the Apr 22, 1932 date from an obituary index in the Lafayette Journal and Courier, confirming he died in Lafayette. Could you let me know where the dates you have listed came from? He's a distant cousin.

RE: Catherine Boze
Thank-you! Thank-you! :)
What an incredible old headstone! It is still standing now - 156 years - and going strong. Bless you for recording this piece of history with your great photo of her headstone & sharing it with us all. It is a real treasure.

I looked up the picture carved on the tombstone and it is a weeping willow tree which symbolizes "perpetual mourning & grief". It gives us a clue about how much this woman was loved & missed by her family. The message is timeless. We are connected in our humanity and can all understand & relate to loss & grief.

Your generosity is very APPRECIATED!
Have a Blessed Christmas!
