Bio Photo Started researching the family roots about 1990. researching the names ROBERTSON, WAGGONER, DECKARD, SEXTON, HAMMOND, ALEXANDER, BROWN, SWANGO, GIBSON, COWLES, TAYLOR, VANCE, AND GRAMLIN. Have just recently started taking digital cemetery pictures of stones to add to family tree collections.

I decided to start contributing these pictures on line to share with other's in search of these Ancestors.

These bios and pictures may not be published for sale or sumitted to websites that charge a subscription.

Please send any corrections or pictures via "EDIT" button and I will correct or add to these collections and give credit to the person submitting. If you are a family member of one of my postings and would like ownership to add bios or pictures feel free to do so.

These entries are dedicated to our two sons, grandchildren and future generations in search of their roots.

Have been working 5 years on photographing & posting WALNUT RIDGE CEMETERY, JEFFERSONVILLE, IN to FAG.

DO NOT USE BLEACH TO CLEAN WHITE MILITARY STONES AS IT WILL TURN THEM YELLOW AND THE DAMAGE CANNOT BE UNDONE.

RE: obituary
Thank you Janet. My husband's grandmother was married to Harry Chapman in 1927 and I have a couple of pictures of him and son John C. Chapman. The marriage didn't last long and Harry went back to Indiana and that is all we knew. Later we found in one of the local papers that said this.

newspaper article obituary Harry Chapman 1935

Word was received in Homer yesterday announcing the death of Harry Chapman, 55 years old, who died Sunday afternoon at 4:30 at the Reid Memorial hospital, Richmond, Indiana.
He is a former resident of Homer, Ill. having been a barber for several years after which he later became night watchman.
He was born August 2, 1880 north of Green's Fork, Ind. He was a member of the Christian church.
Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon from the Green's Fork Christian church at 2 o'clock with interment at Fairfield cemetery.
Mr. Chapman some 30 years ago was a Regular in the U.S. Army and was among those seeing martial law service during the San Francisco disaster, many interesting stories of which he told to barber patrons.

As you can see no mention of his wife or wives or child. I found that John C. Chapman was living with his grandparents (last name Cross) on a 1930 Rush, Indiana census. I will try and reach out to the family mentioned in John C. Chapman obit to see if they would like these pictures. Thank you for your help.

Willemina C. Schulze - Scott Cemetery
Hello Janet;
I believe the photo you posted on the memorial for Willemine Schulze should have been placed on the memorial for another individual, i.e. Willemina C. Schulze. Her headstone has since been repaired and is now standing upright. A photo of the correct headstone for Willemine has also been posted.
Regards;
-Peter

RE: Edward E. Rigsby
Yes, I would like to have ownership of my Dad and Mom's entries. I should request ownership for all of the Rigsbys and Maude Skaggs since they are my family.

Thanks for your help with this.
