Bio Photo "No matter how long a person lives, they touch and change the lives of others."
- Father Aiden


Like many others, I found Find A Grave while searching for my ancestors. Although I currently live in South Florida, I am Indiana born and raised and will forever be a Hoosier at heart. I visit family in Indiana twice a year and always make time to stop at as many cemeteries as time will allow. (yes, my family thinks I'm a bit strange.)

I hope my efforts will perhaps help someone in their ancestry search. I also hope to help immortalize forgotten folks and some of these great old gravestones before they crumble away forever.

Some of the surnames in my family line are: Pratt, Churchill, Miller, Friend, Cook, Calentine, Strong, Himelick, Veal, Reeves, Swihart, Eaten, Bundy, Overton, Myers, Thomas, Tombaugh, and Shively.

I am also researching my husband's family ancestry including the following surnames: Habermann, Schafer, Tuohy, Kaiser, Davis, Minogue, McGrath, and Shenefield.

Please let me know if you need someone transferred to you. Also, please let me know if I've made any errors in my submissions, and I will correct them as quickly as possible.

Memorial 114230272 & 113813300
I called the cemetery, as I really would like a photo of the gravesides but need to know where they are buried. Isaac Huff and his wife, Sarah are buried in Block 99. I spoke with a Jackie, who said a Sexton will gladly show where they are buried if needed.

Is there a way you could state this (sexton will show the gravesite) somewhere on the memorial? Maybe if this is stated then someone would take the photos for me. :o)

Hi Susan,

You posted a family photo on the memorial of my ancestor, Hester Bloomer Sausaman. I was happy to see it, but I cannot identify any of the people. Can you add it to the caption attached to the photo?

Many thanks,

Duplicate memorial
Hello Susan,
I wanted to let you know that you have a memorial for Amanda Turroll Find A Grave #86996155. Her Last name is not spelled correctly and another memorial was entered. See Find A Grave#113630649 (History Hunter) They have everything - a photo of her stone and lots of family history. So you may want to remove your entry - I enjoyed reading your bio. I have lived in NW IN for the past 10 years. - - Margot

Hi Susan,

Thanks for all the work you've done here on Find a Grave. I've found that you created a memorial for an ancestor of mine. Samuel Beckner was my 3rd great grandfather. I have some things that I would like to add to his memorial so if you would be so kind as to transfer his memorial over to me, I would really appreciate it.

Samuel Beckner - 58217473

George Swihart /Swinehart
I noticed George Swihart /Swinehart is your 4th great grandfather, well he's my 4th great uncle. Your 5th great grandparents are Peter Swinehart & Anna Mary Swinehart. I have no idea why the spelling was changed from Swinehart to Swihart but I do know that thru history the spelling had changed many times.

I Have added Michigan death cert to Mary L Slater Denend Kuhl Memorial, this information

Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl, daughter of Jeremiah Slater and Ruth Moore Slater born May 11, 1844 in Miami County, Indiana, USA. The family moved to Buchanan Township, Berrien County, Michigan, and Mary grew up there with her two sisters Elizabeth and Sarah J. and seven brothers, William Henderson, Nathaniel Jennings, Henry R., Leonidas H., John C., James L. and Benjamin J. Slater. She was the youngest of the ten children.

Mary married William Denend, Feb 28, 1866 in Berrien Co., Michigan. Mary was the mother of Frank Denend and step-mother of Sarah Ann and James Denend. William Denend died 1901 in Saint Joseph County, Indiana.

In 1910 Census we find Mary working as a servant back in Bertrand Township, Berrien, Michigan.

Mary L Slater Denend married August F. Kuhl Of Galien, Berrien, Michigan Oct 14, 1911 in Saint Joseph County, Indiana. August and Mary resided in Galien Township, Berrien County, Michigan. August was a farmer.

Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl died Oct 31, 1924 in Three Oaks, Berrien County, Michigan, USA. Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl is buried with her second husband August Kuhl in Galien Township Cemetery, Berrien County Michigan.

link with Galien cemetery is disconnected.

Help to clarify this and put Mary in correct cemetery is greatly appreciate. Thank you.
