Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I have been doing family Genealogy as far back as I can remember. My Great Aunt Pauline had me walking in cemeteries as soon as I was old enough to walk. My aunt Pauline Myers died in 2000 but I still carry on with her research.

This is a wonderful place to remember our loved ones and too pass along information to others. Coming from a military family I have been trying to record the graves of the Veterans, especially the civil war vets. Many of the old stones are gone but with a sight like this maybe they will not be forgotten. My daughter and I spend weekends finding old cemeteries that have been forgotten, (a lot of walking). We have also recorded cemeteries where all headstones are gone and the only records for these graves are recorded at the county library.

I want to thank Dave and Apple Dwiggins for the info on the Indiana Service men who were killed during World War II, and are buried at the Manila American Cemetery. See their web page here.

My grandma, Inez Rogers (Buried at Grandview Cemetery, Vigo Co. IN) died Aug. 7th 2009 if you have time please visit her memorial and leave a flower.

Making the change I suggested and then rejecting it once you had done so.

That was a shabby pointless thing to do.


What did I do that was pointless and shabby?

Thanks Vada,
I'm not related either, and I am on the same mission as you. Thanks for getting back with me, and let's keep paying it forward one photo or fact at a time :)

Lucinda Arney Fiscus cemetery
Hello Vada,
I am writing, because I have a contributor that needs information from the Fiscus Cemetery. I cannot find a number for the people who handle that cemetery, and I live in Mississippi and cannot get there to find this information on Noah Arney, and Lucinda Arney. If you can find a phone number of someone that can help it would be appreciated if you cannot.
Sincerely,
Valeria Falgout
