Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started researching our 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 our family tree collection.

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These bios and pictures may not be published for sale or sumitted to websites that charge a subscription.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 we will correct or add to these collections and give credit to the person submitting. If you are a family member of one of our 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.

Maud L. Frank, Walnut Ridge Cemetery
Buried Walnut Ridge Cemetery per Clark Co., Indiana Death Record Book CH-8, page 184-185:
Maud L. Frank
died 3 August 1950, Jeffersonville, Clark Co., Indiana
age 92 years

It appears that the Cemetery records show the date of burial and not the date of death.

Rae Alton English
Hello Janet,

Just wanted to thank you for the photographs. Rae is my father; I am responsible for having the wrong death date engraved on the stone. We said our goodbyes on January 23rd; he died the next morning. Please contact me if you want more genealogical data as there are some errors in some of the records in FindAGrave.

Sincerely,

Kae A. Griffith (KaeArelyn@gmail.com)

RE: Jane Ellen Lindley at Walnut Ridge
You have a good point, so I double checked death records for both. On the record for Jane it does say that she lived 9 hours. That opens the possibility for the stone being correct. I have entered 2 Dec 1947 as the date of birth for Jane on my death record database. But the death record gives 2 Dec 1947 as the date of death and I can only transcribe that. Thanks for your help.
