Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very familiar with Hendricks and Morgan counties of Indiana and the Quakers who settled there. When taking pictures I won't disturb a stone as they are so brittle and "granular" now as compared to when I started taking pictures of them 30+ years ago. To use brushes, chalk, soaps and chemicals would likely wipe out any text that had been carved in (especially the very old ones). Please be careful with these old stones - once damage has been done from cleaning, it's likely irrepairable. Please check findagrave discussion forums or your local department of natural resources for alternatives to bring out the text on these stones safely. Please be careful so the next person after you will be read this precious genealogical resource! Thank you.

Best Practice Recommendations for Cleaning Government-Issued Marble Headstones:

Please note that I have a lot going on right now and it may take a bit to get back with you, and I would be happy to update memorials with sourced documentation. Thank you in advance for your patience.

PLEASE DO NOT use any of my photos prior to asking and receiving written permission. Should you wish to use my photos - please post a message below with the memorial name and number along with a description/source of what my photos will be used for, the description(s) of photos you wish to have permission to use along with your name, contributor ID number and an email address where you can be contacted back at. I will not consider any request that has less than the information as outlined above.

I would appreciate virtual flowers and notes left on my Revolutionary War ancestor's memorials - William Hoyt (memorial # 68922225) who was killed in battle at Fort Ticonderoga, and his son Benjamin (memorial # 120139805) who was in the same troop and witnessed his father being shot and killed.

Thank you.

RE: Adaline Ward Baxter
It really looks like you might have a few more leads than I currently have. You confirmed what I have been assuming that Lydia passed away and then Thomas married her sister. I have found mixed results of Thomas being born new jersey. If you ever do get a chance to see into your box, I would be very interested in the contents. Thanks! I will continue my search for more information that is concrete. Thanks for the fast reply too.

Her father, Thomas, is in my direct line and I am interested in anything you may know about her parents. I have been searching and I have found myself reaching out to anyone who may know something to point me a good direction. Any help you could give would be great.

RE: Chester Shaw
I'm not giving up on finding his grave. I just need to speak with someone at the office to see where the series 300 plots are. They are not on the official map and it was not a straightforward search. I will try again.

Hi! Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorial for this lady. It appears to be one that I "inherited" from a former contributor but I have contacted the manager of the other memorial and asked her if she would be willing to change the surname to "Shirley" that I would delete the one under my name. Thanks for the heads up!

Achsa Ann (Palmer) Lutz
Thank you for the marriage record information. I did some research on her in Ancestry to be sure but you are correct that her name was Achsa, not Aylisa. I've corrected it on findagrave, and added her middle and maiden names and birth date and birth place. It looks like she was born in KY to Thomas Anderson Palmer and Nancy F. Wood, who were married 09/21/1819 in Mason, KY. Thomas A. Palmer may have died in Boone Co., IN and was buried in Hamilton Co., IN at Little Eagle Creek Cemetery with his 2nd wife, Amanda and their baby, Robert. I couldn't find a death date or place for Nancy F. Wood-Palmer. She may have died in KY. When I found out about the headstones that were removed from the cemetery in Lebanon, I researched it at the Lebanon Library and found lists of the people buried there that were made in the 1930s and again in the 1950s before the headstones were removed and destroyed. These lists are how I got the name of Aylisa. Thanks again for your help.
