Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Indianapolis, IN. I'm a big Colts, Pacers and Fever fan, and a Hong Kong Phooey fan also. I like to go to all the cemeteries around here and some outside of Indy to help families find their loved ones, relatives and friends that normally can't travel here to see them. I've been doing research on my own family for a little over seven years, and its been very fulfilling to me to find distant family members, and especially ones that have been forgotten. I'm currently researching the names Waller, Dimmitt, Pippin, Wilson, and Ferlines in and around the areas of Morganfield, Marion, Henderson, Crittenden, and Uniontown, Kentucky. Gold Hill, Shawneetown, and Old Shawneetown, Illinois, and Mount Vernon (Posey Co.), Indiana. I would greatly appreciate any help from anyone who can help me in those areas, and I would also help anyone who needed it.



Please visit the Slave Cemetery in my Virtual Cemeteries Section before you go, letter (G) on my virtual cemeteries list. There are so many people buried in those cemeteries that were taken from their families, beaten, chained, mistreated, lynched, unnamed, and forgotten while they were alive, as well after they had died. Please leave a little love for them to show them that they are not forgotten.

************************************************
Please leave a token for our military people, letter (H) in my cemetery list. They are the ones that kept this country free, lets not forget them. Thanks so much.

RE: Herschel Johnson grave
Sorry for the lateness of this note, but thank-you so much for transferring my Uncle Herschel to me. If it wasn't for you, I still wouldn't even know where he was buried!

To A Faithful Servant
You found my great grandfather and mother! This means so much to me and my mom. I checked out your page and your mom is resting in the same place as my maternal grandmother too! I'm sure your mom is smiling knowing what a good and faithful servant you are being by helping others in this way. I thank you for your time, energy, patience, and great photography! Be blessed!

RE: Herschel Johnson grave
Thank you Derric, for taking the picture and for transferring it to me. I really appreciate it. I didn't even know that he was buried in the same cemetery as his family!

Herschel Johnson grave
Hi Derric,

You have posted a grave for Herschel Johnson, Memorial# 36909899. He was my grand uncle. Are you related to him? I've been working on his family and would like to link him to them.
