Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family history after my mother died from a hereditary disease but got hooked and have been climbing the family tree for over 30 years. I hope I have contributed to the family history for generations to come.

I am a volunteer with the Portage Community Historical Society and they have allowed me to have a genealogy and historical research area in the Goin Museum. If you have an early Portage Township family, consider donating a copy of your family history to our museum.


My Favorite Poem

A Daisy Beside the Rose
by Diana Sue Lindley Horton

Among the many flowers, God,
Within Your garden fair,
May I, a simple daisy be
So proudly standing there.

I need not be the most admired,
Great beauty to disclose;
It's certain in Your garden,God,
Not all can be a rose.

'Twould be to me an honor,
If where Your garden grows,
I could but be a daisy -
That stands beside the rose.

Ethel Rands Jones gravestone

The gravestone for Ethel Rands Jones is wrong according to her obituary.

Do you know where the Jones property - that was the White Thorne Woods property on Hwy 6 in Valparaiso. The son must have sold off the property.

RE: Mrs. Jones obit
The strange thing is -

Her gravestone is listed as -

RE: Ethel Rands Jones

I stopped today at the Valpo Library and found her obit. I thought she was the daughter of Joseph Rands.

RE: Ethel Rands Jones
I looked today for the obit. I looked in 1978, 1979 and 1980. There is a obit for JW Jones only. The Valpo Library is very nice - why don't you request a look-up for her obit since it was not in the Chesterton Tribune.

Jones, Ethel Belle died 2/5/1980 at 84 Jackson Twp.

Date of paper: 2/6/1980
