I have been going to cemeteries to do look ups for people and on my trips I have taken several pictures of headstones. Not all are related to me. My hopes are that someone else out there is looking and needs a little helping hand. If there is information that you would like added to a loved one please feel free to e-mail me and I would be glad to put the information in for you or if you would like to put it on Find A Grave please e-mail me and I will delete the one I put in. Some of the surnames in my family are: Fathers side; Willis, Skinner, Campbell, Tarr, Williams, Webb and McFarland; Mothers side; Schaer, Wells, Lee, Smith, Cahalan, and Olson. Good Luck to all that are searching!! Thank you again to Find A Grave for helping with my look ups and letting me contribute to help others. Shawn

I believe he was living in Jackson County, Indiana in 1840 and suspect he may have been a close relative to my Smiths. I have GEDmatch, F362100, and yDNA at SmithsWorldWide.org http://www.smithsworldwide.org/smtestcompareg.asp?grouping=GRP-R-M269-9
