Bio Photo Please feel free to copy Find-a-Grave photos that I have taken without asking permission. However, I do kindly ask that you keep the credit with the photo and not upload/copy them to Public Trees on Ancestry and other sites as your own photo work.

Many memorials on Ancestry and Find-a-Grave reflect info & photos furnished by DOGLOVER. In 2013, I changed my username from DOGLOVER to INDIANATURTLE.

Additionally: If you are directly related to my maternal Carpenter, Machlan and Hume lines, I'd truly appreciate hearing from you and exchanging info.

Unless I am related or there is another special relationship, I am happy to transfer records.

RE: Greenwood @ Hillside
Glad to be a tiny bit of help in getting your family tree linked together and full birth/death dates. I obtained a copy of the Hillside Cemetery burials by a man who walked the cemetery, wrote down all the dates than went and read through the local obits which is how he linked all these family members together. This listing is now maintained by Whitewater Public Library which is where I obtained a copy. I found a newspaper article about him - it says it took him 5 years to list everyone in the Whitewater cemeteries. The list is hand-typed on an old typewriter, single spaced with hand-written notes squeezed in various place. This is now what I am transcribing onto Hillside Cemetery listings on Find A Grave. I have found very few typos when someone has taken a photograph recently of a tombstone that doesn't match his dates. Most all his entries are accurate!

More listings to come.

I appreciate you getting in touch with me and doing me the honor of asking if I wish to help with the cemeteries. Unfortunately, my circumstances have changed in the last 2 years and I have no free time any more. I am still doing updates when I am notified, but I cannot visit the cemeteries as I used to. I wish you all the best in your endeavors. If you know of any more updates I need to make feel free to let me know. Take care, Sherry Perry

I did get your message. Limestone Township is not an option. Are you related? I am happy to transfer if that is the case. Thanks!

RE: Harriette Dawley Dunham, Henry Cadman, etc. - Hillside
I did notice the duplications. Maybe you can try a message to him again and see if you get any results. If not, your only option is to contact Find A Grave staff - they can merge the two entries together.

Good luck.

Transfer of Margaret Hume
Thank you so much for the transfer of Margaret A. (Campbell) Hume, memorial #122025664. She is a sister of my 2nd great grandfather, Robert Campbell, Memorial #120193311.
There was a problem with their mother, Nancy (Oliver) Campbell, memorial #12783327 having a duplicate memorial. I think that the problem has been resolved. Thanks again,

RE: McFarlin - Walworth Center
I stopped at the cemetery on the way home from work tonight and I have located the grave for Joyce McFarlin, but I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera so I could not get a photo. I did get the dates off the stone and have submitted edits to you for birth and death dates plus the plot location. I will try again tomorrow night to get a photo for you. Right beside her is the grave of another woman, Sally H Klowski (1909-1870), with a matching stone, Find A Grave Memorial# 133492312. Do you know is there is some connection or relationship there? If you could submit a photo request I would be credited for the volunteer photos.
