Bio and Links
Bio Photo Looking forward to discovering treasures of our families here, as well as contributing pictures and memorials from Southern Indiana.

We were French Lick High School sweethearts and have lived in SW Florida 35 years. We are very active with our grandchildren and now enjoy our great grandchild.

We try to unite distant relatives a little closer before we all end up on here. We also try to donate back to our Springs Valley and Orange County, Indiana area, hopefully leaving a legacy for our families to cherish.

If I have created a memorial you wish and you desire a transfer, please request from the EDIT tab with YOUR Name and Number. Your relationship is helpful in that I'm always interested in folks helping each other out.

Our lives have become enriched with the contacts we've made on FindaGrave, opening so many doors, even getting to meet some folks in person from other states. Through others, I've been able to find and provide my Grandfather with a headstone after being unmarked for 45 yrs., find and visit my Dad's after being left unclaimed 4.5 mos., plus have had family make DNA donations to help us discover and validate our past treasures. May all our loved ones rest in peace and have greener pastures, and lest us NOT forget.

IF YOU COPY AND USE MY PHOTOS - I respectfully request that you PLEASE GIVE the HECKLER-BAKER FAMILY #47559633 the CREDIT as BEING THE DONORS. So many of our family have come together to graciously contribute these family heirlooms. We thank you.

BTW, if you're a little overboard or fanatical, please bother someone else that cares. Life is TOO short for such things!

Leaving one footstep at a time ...
Chiquita & Bobby

RE: Clifford Owens
I know my whole body is disintegrating due to old age! I'll be 69 next month, I don't know where all the years went. I'll have the biopsies done next Monday and hopefully they will be okay. I know that you have had a rough time, too, I hope things are better for you now. I'll let you know how the biopsies come out. Take care of yourself and your family and I'll talk to you again soon. I'm sending prayers for all of you.

Your friend,

Hi Chiquita,

Thanks for the info, I added it. Let me know if you want transfers.

Sorry it took me a while to get it done, I have been sick and have to go get a lot of biopsies done on Oct. 19 to see about malignancies in my stomach and esophagus.

Take care, have a good weekend!

Thank you
Hello Chiquita,

thank you for posting the picture, I have always wanted to know about my Grandfather. I am the son of Clifford (Chris) Owens Jr. I live in McCordsville, Indiana and have a daughter that is a senior at IU this year. I would like to come down and maybe meet over coffee and talk.

thank you

Samuel Rice Earley
Hi Chiquita!

I was looking for the gravesite of Elizabeth Washburn (1767-1849) who was, I believe, was the 1st wife of my 4th great grandfather Samuel Rice Earley. They settled in Armstrong County, PA, but I believe I've seen Cumberland Co. PA in the records as well. One of their sons, Andrew Rice Earley, is my 3rd great grandfather, but the information you've supplied seems too similar to be ignored. In fact, my father's father was also named Samuel Rice Early and he had a son named Samuel Rice as well.

Although the middle name is different and the dates don't quite add up, I am wondering if your Samuel Hendricks Earley is somehow related? Do you know that last name of Elizabeth, when they were in Cumberland Cty. and how/why the family ended up in Indiana?

Here is a link for a photo of Thomas Underwood. I think it is the same person. Let me know what you think.

RE: Chiquita Baker
Hi Chiquita,

Wow, you have really been thru the mill, bless your heart. I hope that you are on the mend and not too badly injured. The big news here is we have a great-granddaughter, she just turned 1 year old, her name is Presley Rose. She's the daughter of my 27 year old grandson, Brett. Boy, she is sure a handful, so energetic! I tripped and fell back in July and dislocated my right thumb, it still won't bend, the doc is talking about surgery but I don't think that's a road I want to go down right now. So I keep exercising and hope it will limber up some. My hubby has cancer but is doing pretty good right now, so thank God for that, we all just muddle thru and do the best that we can. My granddaughter got $49,000.00 in scholarship money for college so that is sure exciting! You take care of yourself, I hope your family is getting along fine. I will talk to you again soon, God bless you and yours.

Your friend,

RE: Permission to use photos
Thanks very much, I will certainly credit you. We are almost certainly (if distantly) related as the person you identify as your great-great-grandmother Martha Stackhouse was sister to my great-grandfather John Allen Stackhouse. Thanks again.

I have transferred George Elmer Dixon, Maude Ellen Underwood, and their daughter Edith to you. Yes I am a relative of the Dixon/Dishon's, but have not linked these to my trees. Sorry this has taken me so long to transfer, this email was not working. If there are any other transfers just ask, I have changed email addresses.
