Bio and Links
Bio Photo Interested in genealogy and family history. Member of Noble County Indiana Genealogical Society. I have been researching my mother's family primarily for the last four years. I was born a "Buckeye" but I have been a "Hoosier" since 1965. Alot of the listings are my relations except for Old Lutheran Cemetery in Fort Wayne. I currently reside in Allen County, Indiana and I blessed to have their excellent family history library close by when I started my research. Enjoy find a grave to preserve those who have passed and have gained many clues that benefited my own research. Many thanks to all contributors for all your work. Lately I have adding photos of some of Noble County, Indiana, my parents home area. Specifically Sweet, Krammerer, Rose Hill, and Old, Rehoboth Cemeteries. Also helping out with some of Allen County too.
As I work through each row, if the grave is not listed, I place it on find a grave if I can identify it. Additions and corrections are most welcome. Please make sure any corrections are factual. I do not place photos of markers if the spouse is still living, for privacy reasons.If any of my listings are non-close relations, transfers are available to the decedent's family members.

Thank You for stopping by,

Merriman stones
Hello, I am currently updating a family history, Berkebile Families in America, 6th edition of Which the Merriman's are members. Could I have your permission to use the photos you posted of their headstones in the book? You would of course be given credit for the photos

Kolkman Photo
I was wanting to request that if you please, could you post the same photo that is on memorial #37802022 (Henry A. Kolkman) on his daughter's memorial #37802003. Her name is Dolores Kolkman. She died in infancy and shares the same marker as her father.

Thank You and God Bless!
