Transfers: I will transfer ownership to direct descendants within four generations - the same as Find A Grave guidelines. Otherwise, I'm happy to add to memorials and make links, just click on the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial, then click on "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Be sure to give me the other person's ID number when requesting links.|
One line of my ancestors (CROSE) lived in Tippecanoe Co., IN in the 1820s. Some of their cousins lived in the next county to the south, Boone, and some south of that in Hendricks Co. I live in northern Hendricks Co., and am taking photos mostly in Boone and Hendricks, including the older, more difficult to read stones. Hopefully, these photographs will be around longer than the headstones. Many are on the verge of not being readable - even with the sun at a good angle and using tricks to bring out the text.
Since I've been doing genealogy research for a number of years, I can see a real benefit in seeing headstones, rather than relying on a transcription. To me, the important thing is to be able to read the inscription (names & dates, child of ...), but not really the verse below it. It's also important to know who is buried next to whom. I'll mention that if I notice a connection.
Cemeteries that are completed - meaning that I photographed everything and have posted all that was readable. Other transcriptions may have more names.
Beck - Bethel - Browns Wonder - Jones
Lowry -Macedonia - Mintonye - Mt Union
Mt. Zion - North Branch - Oak Hill (Sect 1-29, 34N & 34S) - Pleasant Hill (Indy)
Pleasant View (Dover) - Poplar Grove - Prebster - Old Union Church - Robison -
St. Malachy West - Salem - Sparks - Taylor - Trotter (I can only find 33 of the 64 markers) - Weaver - Zionsville
I currently use a 10M Canon Powershot camera which will take pictures at 3648 x 2736 pixels. Normally I reset the resolution to 2272 x 1704 and then on the computer, especially with worn headstones, I turn up the contrast 20-30%, and lower the brightness 5-10% and keep the compression at 98 to 99%. When I started posting for Find a Grave the file size limit was 250 KB, then 350, 500, 750, 2000 3000 and now 8000 KB. I use photo editing software that I downloaded for free - it's much better than what Canon or Olympus gives you with their camera. With Photoscape I know the file size before I save the file.

|Linda H.||Helena DeWeese Lewellyn|
Helena was my great aunt and oldest sister of brother Milton DeWeese and my great grandmother Ada Bell DeWeese Senate. They were the children of Sylvanus DeWeese and Sarah Elizabeth Bowman DeWeese. I am looking for copies of family photos as my great grandmother Ada died when my grandmother was only 5 in 1906 and all family photos are non existent. I figure Helena had them. All my grandmother had was a few photos of her mother holding her as a baby and her parents wedding photo. I have no other family photos. Can't even find her grave. thanks,

|Greg Raike||Delbert Frost|
Disregard. I now see where you said Dale Cemetery. Sorry...
|Greg Raike||Delbert Frost # 60398599|
What cemetery is he buried at?
|William Harrison||My duplicate(s) for Charlotte McClung) Spilman|
Thanks for catching the two duplicates that were somehow posted for Charlotte. I must have got kicked off of Find A Grave while posting her memorial, and the duplicates were somehow created w/o my knowledge.
The duplicate (and triplicate!) have been deleted!
Thanks again for your consideration,
|Gary Stafford||Lester Lohman|
You are the second person to tell me about Lester Lohman being listed in the wrong cemetery, but I talked to the funeral home and they told me he is buried in the St. John Lutheran cemetery where all of his family is buried. If you have definite proof that he is not let me know.
