Hello, We are Brad & Amanda Collins. We have been working on our family tree for about 10 years now. We use a PC program from "My Heritage" and we love it. We are still learning a lot about geneolgoy and how to research our family. |

~~ In Our Hearts ~~
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.

Hi Brad and Amanda
Just wanted you to know I posted photos for Thomas and Nancy Brooks Vater, parents of Harry Vater, in Crown Hill, Indianapolis. Right now Nancy is listed under Vaster. I have submitted a correction to the memorial owner. Hopefully it will be corrected in a day or two. Have a good evening.

|Barbara Wolf||Jacob & Sarah Tedrick|
Correct spelling is Tidrick. There is memorials and photos already on these two people. Barb
|Bob & Nancy Cannon||Albert Dawson, Hillside Cemerery|
You have flowers posted with 2 different names for his mother. And you gave us the maiden name as Lockwood but have the flower spelled with Lockwood with an e.
Please delete whichever flower has the incorrect information.
I have made the additions and connected as you requested. If this is your family I will be glad to transfer these memorials to you.

Do you know about this site for Grant County? http://gen.marion.lib.in.us/search_form.asp
|Tiffany Amos Heathcott||amos/ditto|
Looks like we are distant cousins. I have been researching the Amos family for some time now, with several road blocks. it was not until I did the DNA testing on ancestry that I could prove some information. Nicholas Amos & Christina Ditto are also my 5th great grandparents. I currently live in Oklahoma however my husband and I are going to travel and I am going to do research all accross the US, let me know if you need any pictures or anything.. Nice to meet you...
|Scott Shoup||RE: Elbert Haines|
He is buried by a Helen Myers.

Nevermind - found the marker!
|Scott Shoup||Elbert Haines|
Do you know if Elbert was married? If so, what was his wife's maiden name that might help me locate the burial. However, I've catalog almost the entire cemetery and don't think that there is a stone for him.
Since the most of the family seems to be buried at Stahl, would there have been a reason why he would be at Six Mile?

|Michael Cooley||Johnson family|
Sorry to say that you have mixed up two Johnson families under your page for Thomas Henry Moon.
You've combined the identities of George Johnson, born 1813 in Ohio, with Elijah Johnson, born 1811 Pennsylvania, and their wives, Ruth Moon, born 1818 in Ohio, with Anna Jane Foster, born 1813 in PA. Elijah and Anna Jane were married on 6 Nov 1832, probably in Fayette county PA, and both died in Appanoose county, Iowa, 1889 and 1879, respectively. They had all the children you state except Robert Barclay Johnson.
I've been researching this family for over 30 years. My webpage for Elijah is at http://ancestraldata.com/ahnentafel/36/
Could the families have been related? I suppose, but none of the data corresponds.
Please let me know the source of your information so that I can contact that person and fix it at that end.
