RE: Kerlin Cemetery-John Whalen
You have also listed other families related to John Whalen: Singleton, Crossfield, and Wilson. At this point, I think you have all of those family members who were buried at Kerlin.

They were a few of the many families who migrated from Bartholomew Co, IN and settled in Buchanan Co. Carol

Did you take the photo of Jane Whalen's gravestone? If so, may I have your permission to add it to Find A Grave and Ancestry? Carol

RE: Kerlin Cemetery-John Whalen
So if I understand you correctly, the couple had recorded the children because they did have tombstones (at that time), but later recordings indicate the stones were no longer there. OK...that makes sense!

You've been very helpful...thank you!!!

RE: Kerlin Cemetery-John Whalen
Well, it's good that you are linking Find A Grave with your site...you'll be 'adding' Jane's husband, Thomas J, and his father, John!

If the couple who recorded the info during the 60's stated that there weren't gravestones, the stones had evidently been lost before their visit, or the little boys didn't have gravestones when they were buried. I wonder where they got records of their burials? It's fortunate they had a source since I haven't found any mention of those two children.

Your efforts are definitely appreciated...Carol

RE: Kerlin Cemetery-John Whalen
There are 3 generations of Whalens buried in Kerlin Cemetery: John Whalen (1788-1865), his son, Thomas J (1818-1860) and Thomas' wife, Jane Rowan (1819-1858), and their two sons, John (1852-1855) and Thomas J (1858-1859).
I hope that helps organize the "confusion" with duplicate names!!! Carol

RE: Kerlin Cemetery-John Whalen
OOPS! The Thomas J who died 1859 was Thomas J Whalen's son, born 1858. The Thomas J (my memorial) was born 1818 and died 1859/1860. Is there any chance you have the older Thomas's death date? Carol
