Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photos that I have taken may be copied freely for personal use. I do kindly ask that you keep the credit intact, and not upload them to Ancestry or other sites as your own photo work. I am related to almost all of the memorials I have added and/or manage. Unless I am directly related or there is a special relationship, I am happy to transfer memorials to other family members.

Many memorials on Ancestry and Find-a-Grave reflect my previous username, DOGLOVER, which I changed to INDIANATURTLE in 2013.

Edit requests for my own family memorials that link to UB's (unknown burial location) will be declined. I will be pleased to link when a confirmed and/or documented burial location is found.

Was out just before the snow and just got the photos downloaded and entered. 12 inches of snow now - no more photos for a while!

Clara McConnell memorial
I added the marriage information. Would you like to manage this memorial? I would certainly transfer it to you.

RE: John McFarlin
I have seen Manhattan, Peotone, Jackson to name a few. I've given up trying to find the difference. Joliet is a no, but for some reason, the public directory shows Joliet even though the directory states otherwise. And no no. Never heard of that name.

I know Luke McFarlin Jr bought land and had a farm north of Peotone and lived there I thought since the 60's but with the different censuses, I'm not sure. Maybe town lines changed.

I agree that the tombstone is quite weathered. The date of death and transcription on her memorial is from the Indian Prairie cemetery records.

I did find the 1880 Census record that you spoke about. It lists her as being 4 years old.

I could not find any mention of her death in the local newspapers and it was not in the Death Index for Sullivan County, Indiana.

It may be possible that the cemetery records are in error but I can not tell from the picture. Do you think that it is possible that the 1898 is actually 1893?

Thank You
for transferring George & Julia Hewitt Shoppelle to me. It means so much. Good luck in all of your genealogical endeavors! I hope to pay it forward...
