Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for about 20 years and use FindAGrave for clues for my research. A group of Roop and related famiiies have a website at and we have collected an amazing number of tombstone pictures from all over the country. I thought sharing those photos and the obits that we have also collected might help someone else in their research. Finding a new cousin or two would be a great bonus!

I am a retired gymnastics club owner, have five grandchildren and enjoy scapbooking and gardening when I'm not searching the web for more information on my many family lines. My husband's family is from north Louisiana, my mother's family is from an area about 30 miles from where I live, but my dad's family is from Decatur, Adams Co, IN, so the internet has been a major investigative tool.

RE: Mrs.. Jerry Ferris
I apologize. I sent the obituary to the wrong person. Mrs. Jerry Ferris is the sister of Peuella A. Hunter. Mrs. Jerry Ferris is the daughter of James Hunter and Elizabeth Roop. I must have done this when my brains were scrambled. Thank you for letting me know I sent the obituary to the wrong person.

RE: Victor S. Reed
You are very welcome Margie. I spent 35 years searching for my g-great grandmother's grave. Now I transcribe cemeteries in the summer and search old newspapers for obituaries in the winter, so maybe others won't have to spend so many years searching for their family members. Glad I could help with your family mystery. Juelette Fadness

RE: Wm. Hiner
I have found Rachel Elder on my family tree. I should have looked there first. Her parents are Lewis Keith Elder and Elizabeth Firestone Elder. Lewis Keith's father was John Elder who is buried at VanCuren cemetery here in Kosciusko Co. I think they must be some relation to Samuel Elder who Martha Hiner married, but haven't found the connection yet.

RE: Wm. Hiner
I was originally confused about these graves also. After doing some research here in Warsaw, I discovered that William Leonard Hiner married Rachel M. Elder on Aug. 31, 1872 in Kosciusko Co., In. Rachel was born in 1854 and died June 18, 1878 in Kosciusko Co. I don't have her parents recorded, but I believe they were related by marriage to William Leonard's sister. His oldest sister was Martha who married Samuel Elder. His other sister was Mary who was my great great grandmother. I will see what I can find on Rachel's parents. I haven't really looked. William Leonard's mother died in 1889 in Kosciusko Co. after his father's death, but I can't find where she is buried. William Leonard was married two more times after Rachel died. Are you related to the Elders?
