Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in Sept of 2008, and have gotten into genealogy. I'm currently working on adding names to Rest Haven Memorial Park, in Lafayette, Indiana. I don't know a lot of the dates, so if they are members of your family, please let me know the dates. I will turn over ownership of the sites, if requested. I am looking for information for Gorby, Grenat, Barnett, Malone and O'Connor. They are mostly from southern Indiana, but they do go everywhere.
I hope I can be of help to you.

I am so sorry if you did an edit, I didn't realize I had to approve them. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

Bertha Bryant
My grandmother was born, Bertha Nina Klink on 18 July 1892 in Lafayette, IN. Her parents were Jacob Friedrich (Fred) Klink and Ursula J. Schlenker (Schlinker), both German immigrants.

Bertha was married to Joseph Richard Cross and together they had the following children: Richard, James, Emma Louise (my mother), Joseph Junior, Josephine, Mary Jane, and Jack Cross.

My mother, at age 97, is the only one of her siblings still living.

After Bertha and Joe Cross divorced, she married a man named Leslie Bryant in 1932. They lived together, according to my mother, for a few years; then Leslie Bryant wanted to live in the Old Soldiers' Home but Bertha did not. She continued to live in Lafayette separately from Mr. Bryant, but they never bothered with a legal separation.
