Bio and Links
Bio Photo We photograph cemeteries in Johnson County Indiana. If you need help with research from Johnson County, or need a headstone photographed, led us know. Historical Headstones #48091606 or me.

I love Genealogy, History and researching my family tree. Find A Grave accidentally helped me find Cousins I didn't know I have, and the best part of that is they are still alive so we can share information! Some of the surnames I am researching are: Buck, Plummer, Wells, Coleman, Szatkowski,Drake, Foley, Moulder, Fisher, Foster, Wiegert, Foley, Flake, Hutslar.

I presently live in Johnson County, Indiana



Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe

At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

Thank you for the headstone. I am not sure if there is a glitch, however, you uploaded three identical headstone photos?????

It's ok I didn't mean to sound preachy or anything, I just thought that you may not have known that it went up sideways. I know that cellphone photos sometimes do that!

Hi, don't know if you noticed, but on this memorial you put the photo up sideways. Would you fix it please?

The thanks are to you. This is my family and I am now trying to add anything I can. I must before I get any older. Ha ha. I am 71.

Obits are NOT official records, but when I quote them I do it verbatim whether they're right or wrong. I base my research only on official cemetery records with headstone verification.

RE: mary tilford
Rick Jones sent it to me too - and I made it all out except the last line. I'm still working on trying to read it off of his picture. Can't believe someone didn't have pictures of this huge beautiful stone already!!! THANK YOU.
