Names I am researching: Medd, Poshard, White, Lods, Beaver/Bever, McKee, Riley, West, McCane, Redden, Mahan, Vail, Hedrick, Cramer, Lefforge, Mann, Logan, Amos. The Rush Co. Genealogical Society is in the process of transcribing & posting photos for all cemeteries in Rush County. This will be a long process, so be patient. I will be happy to transfer memorials to a direct relative. There has been much discussion over the use of photos. By all means, use any photo I have posted, and you don't need my permission.
RE: McKee family A Charles H. McKee was my great-grandfather. His wife was Katherine Simonson McKee. They were buried at the East Hill Cemetery in Rushville, Indiana. William Simonson McKee, (William S. McKee on his tombstone) was my grandfather,although he was not listed as one of their children on Find A Grave site. My grandfather William S. McKee and his wife (Charity Hoy McKee) had 5 children. They were: William Lowell McKee,( who died in a house fire on their farm in Orange. He was 3, I believe). Donald Robert McKee, Katherine Gerlandine McKee, Lawrence Nelson McKee (my father) and Helen Roselyn McKee. Donald Robert McKee is buried in New Lisbon, Indiana. Katherine Gerlandine McKee Monroe is buried next to her dad in Rushville. She legally changed her name to Jeri, because she was an attorney, and back in the 50's female attorneys had a hard time getting clients if people knew they were female. My father (Lawrence) is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Cambridge City, Indiana. Only Helen is alive today. She is 91 years old. She lives in Hagerstown, Indiana. She has Parkinsons, and was diagnosed a couple of years ago. My father, Larry McKee died from complications from Parkinsons and pneumonia in 2007. He was diagnosed a couple of months before he passed away. We were not aware Parkinson disease was in the family.
I have a interesting photo of my grandfather, my grandmother,Uncle Don, Aunt Girlie, and dad taken around 1920. I you want to have a copy, I can e-mail it to you. Let me know. My e-mail address is: KathleenPerkins@comcast.net
RE: William Schrontz Thank you. That's generous of you. I know there are some Find A Grave posters who don't want their photos used by others...although I wonder why they post them in the first place. Cecily
John Lewis's wife Mary died before 1810 Hi Linda, it was pointed out to me that Mary Power was not in the 1810 census, and that John Lewis married Mary Morten or Martin afterwards. There is a record of that marriage. Phoebe Call, descendant.
