Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Susan Neff, Historian Emeritus of the Ford family and for the Dr. James Ford Historic Home in Wabash, Indiana. I am also Secretary of the board of directors of Falls Cemetery in Wabash.

The first room of the house museum was built by Dr. Ford in 1841 and was enlarged to seven bedrooms as needed to accommodate his growing family. Dr. James & America (Holton) Ford occupied the house for nearly 60 years; it remained in the family for almost 140 years. It was reacquired in 2002, underwent a complete restoration and opened to the public as a living history museum in March 2005.

►►I don't mind if anyone copies my tombstone photos, but I will get extremely upset if my family photos are copied to other sites, especially without proper citation.

Yes, all Neff's are related; includes surname spellings Naf, Naff, Nave, Knaff, Kneff. My 7th great-grandfather, Hans Heinrich Neff, immigrated with his family from Switzerland via Bavaria in the early Fall of 1717. I am descended from his 2nd son, Dr. John Henry Neff - b. 1705, d. 1784 Shenandoah Co, Virginia. Work is in process to identify and organize this entire family, including subsequent immigrations, and much is documented on Findagrave by the Neff Family Historical Society. To see those ancestors in my direct line, please visit the virtual cemetery A2 Line of Neff Family.

I am wondering if you know any person that would be willing to lookup an obituary for me for the above person. She is a distant relative of my husband and I am working on the Davis genealogy of which Iona, through her father is a distant relative. Thank you. I tried to send you a private E-mail, but it didn't go through.

Kedras at Magnolia
Hi there - I processed the updates you provided to the memorials for Dolores and James Kedra, however, how each is listed as both the spouse and the child for the other. Were Dolores and James husband and wife or mother and son? Can you send a corrected suggestion? Thanks so much!
