Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family history after my mother died from a hereditary disease but got hooked and have been climbing the family tree for over 30 years. I hope I have contributed to the family history for generations to come.

I am a volunteer with the Portage Community Historical Society and they have allowed me to have a genealogy and historical research area in the Goin Museum. If you have an early Portage Township family, consider donating a copy of your family history to our museum.


My Favorite Poem

A Daisy Beside the Rose
by Diana Sue Lindley Horton

Among the many flowers, God,
Within Your garden fair,
May I, a simple daisy be
So proudly standing there.

I need not be the most admired,
Great beauty to disclose;
It's certain in Your garden,God,
Not all can be a rose.

'Twould be to me an honor,
If where Your garden grows,
I could but be a daisy -
That stands beside the rose.

Hello, I just happened to find this updating my father's tree (she is Edward Shroll's daugh - my grandma'a bro, and my dad's cous.)
Could I please add some things to her memorial and bring her back into the fold? Deceased for so long I'm afraid she was forgotten.

I was raised in Porter County and my grandma lived on Blake Rd. for yrs and yrs. Is this cem on Blake Rd.? I remember there was a cem there but never went there. I think I may even have some other relatives buried in Porter County but most of them are in Calumet Park C. and Ridge Lawn in Lake C.

Thanks so much for your research!! It's been a big help.

Nila Lucille Morgan Wolfe
For Calvary Cemetery, Portage, she is listed as though Morgan was her birth name. Her birth name was Sweet. Her father, however, was Richard Morgan Sweet. Somehow or other her father's middle name was confused with her birth name. Her listing should be Nila Lucille (Sweet) Wolfe. She is my Dad's first cousin.

Hi Kathy

I submitted change request earlier today for Perry L Trowbridge 9408827 and now am not sure if it was correct. I was working on the assumption that the site was for Perry Joseph Trowbridge 1913/1974, but now wonder if it is really for his son Perry L Trowbridge 1934/2002.

The existing information on the site seems to be mixed for both father and son. The dates and notes match the son, but the obit & links match the father. Do you know who this memorial is actually for?
