Bio and Links
Bio Photo My granddaddy was a monument carver, so from an early age I assumed everybody held picnics in cemeteries. My school-friends informed me that this idea was creepy; poor them, they missed out on the architecture, arts & design, landscaping, geology, spelling, math and history lessons I learned from observing gravesites. I also learned to question and double-check data, because even though a stone claims an ancestor died on leap day, it was not a leap year!
I was a proud momma the time I heard my son tell a friend that they couldn't meet to play, because he and his mom were "going to go look for dead people." He is an adult now, and still gladly hikes through rows of stones with his grandma and me, gleaning genealogical hints.
It is recreational for me to search for monuments - good exercise for the body and for the soul!

Thomas & Martha Bennet
I'm helping a friend with their family history. I am looking at the marker for Thomas Bennet and it states that he died in 1798 and was 73 yrs old. That would put his birth 1725 (?) not 1719. Also, his wife is on the same marker which gives her age as 80 yrs when she died in 1811 - making her birth year 1731. Can you help me with this? The records I'm finding are not corresponding with the information listed here and I'm trying to verify this before I post it in his Ancestry tree!

Also, the only documention I can find of Thomas marrying is to a Ms. Jerusha Bennet 11 Nov 1742.

RE: Matthias Binger, Washington Cem.
His wife had died in 1899 in Ohio and his two sons also stayed in Ohio, so there wouldn't be any other family. Some of her family settled in St Joseph Co, but none closer. Here is the link to the Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, 1879-1903 that states his monument was shipped to Washington Cemetery near Culver, Indiana. Thank you for the help.

Hi Janneane,

Thank you very much for your time and effort to find Caroline's gravestone. I will do a bit more research to see if she could be buried elsewhere.

Best wishes,

Thank you for taking the time to look for his monument. I was hoping there would have been a Civil War marker, and maybe there was at one time. Thank you again. Bev

Janneane, those are so very nice. Thanks, again, for making the effort. And you're right, these new ones are so much better, so easy to make out. A big improvement. Makes a huge difference! Thanks again.

Hi Janneane, Like the new picture but I don't see anything wrong with leaving the old one on there. I'll leave it up to you but I think it is okay. Thanks for doing the new one. Linda

Thanks for all the pictures. It seems Dorothy may have complications from child birth since she died shortly after her daughter. Thanks again. Linda Maret
