Bio and Links
Bio Photo With a love of history, I am a passionate amateur genealogist and family historian. Whenever possible, I am willing to lend a hand to others in their research. I enjoy posting memorials to Find A Grave so our ancestors will not be forgotten. We are, after all, the cumulative sum of all those who have come before us. I am currently primarily researching my family connections to the Atkinson, Breitzke, Cook, Mason, McLain, Mozingo, Wells & Wood families.

If I have posted a memorial for a family member of yours, please feel free to request a transfer of management, even if it is beyond requirements of the guidlines. This is not a game for me to achieve the highest score in contribution stats, but simply a sincere attempt to respectfully help locate and document the final resting places of all those who have come and gone before us.

RE: Breitzke, Sherrick
There are sure a lot of questions I should have asked around here when I was younger. Most of the older people are gone so very few left. Thank you for your response. Mark Stanley

Breitzke, Sherrick
I have been interested it the Sherrick family line that lived in Boone Grove In. I am not related. There was a cemetery here in the later Boone Grove Area. The first one being Merriman Cemetery. All I can find our four burials listed for this cemetery. I remember where it was which is now lawn and some under the roadway at the corner of 300 W 550 S. Years ago a Marvin Peck lived on the property but since has passed. I noticed you had a picture of Fannie. Do you know where that picture was taken? Thank you for your time.

date of birth for Damon Lindley
I'm confused about the date of Damon's birth. The grave says a date quite clearly yet you have a year completely different. You also have a note that gives an age when he died but it's not on the grave marker. I'm a distant family member; my grandmother Florence Pickens Edwards was the sister of Damon's mother Mary Pickens Lindley. Her obituary says she died in 1915 of a brain tumor and that she left a son (Damon) 5 and another son Paul (3). According to this, the date on the grave marker would seem more accurate than the one you put. Can you please check the date of
birth. I'm going to ask 2 cousins who are good researchers to check into this also.

Would you please consider transferring the management of memorials #50780143 and #50780144, John Woods and Ruth Woods? They are my great, great grandparents.
Thank you for your consideration.

re: Nannie E Brewer
Find A Grave Memorial# 50047671

Hello, is it possible this is Nancy Elizabeth Hackney (m Wm Taylor;m Simon Powell;m Billy Brewer)? The dates seem correct, and I was reliably informed by a memoir from her son that her grave is in a Stamper's Creek cemetery. (The quote is "the Stampers Creek Cemetery on route 56 of Paoli, Indiana."

There was at one point a Find A Grave number for a Nancy Elizabeth Taylor Powell Brewer, but it leads to a "not found" message now. (As a matter of fact it seems the entire family has been wiped off of Find a Grave!)

Thanks for your time.
