Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Indianapolis, IN but was raised in southern Indiana. Cemeteries have been great tools in finding our ancestors. I love the Find A Grave site and have found many missing links here.

I try to take photos of older graves knowing that they are often destroyed by either the elements or sadly, vandalism. As I photograph graves, I always try to remember the life of the person buried there. If I have a memorial to your ancestor, please contact me for a transfer. I'll gladly do that even if they are a distant relative as I know how important each name is in our own family trees.

I live close to Crown Hill cemetery and can take grave photos when I am able to get the time to get out. You can reach me by email at user name jphilgen, the server is

transfer please
Mr. Phillips,
I appreciate all you do. I am new to the site and noticed you are managing my mother's grave site. The person you have listed as her husband is incorrect. Is there anyway you would be kind enough to transfer this to me to manage?
It would mean a lot to me.
My mom's name is Norma Jean Chance, from vincennes, indiana,DOB May 4,1936, she died May 7, 1989.
Thank you
Vanessa, her daughter

Thank you for his link to his spouse. I've linked them and also added their marriage record and linked him with his parents.

I just created this one and transferred it to you, since you manage his father's.

His obituary states he was interred at Fairview Cemetery, but you added his memorial to Memorial Park Cemetery. I will call the cemetery today to confirm. Thank you.

Mr. Phillips, where in the world did you locate this obituary?? I have contacted Willard Library in Evansville and the library in Vincennes and they could never locate this!!! I have been told he committed suicide, and this obituary describes an illness. Now that drastic move makes a bit more sense. THANK YOU!!
