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.

Memorial 50622753
Memorial #50622753 for Thomas N Mathers links him to parents, James Mathers & Rachel Ribelin. However, I have found two sources that say his parents are James and Jane Ardrey Mathews - Goodspeed's (see below) biography below and his death certificate. I am wondering if there is something in the cemetery records that disputes these two sources.

Goodspeed's Biography from ingenweb.org/inorange: THOMAS N. MATHERS, auctioneer and farmer, is a native of Bourbon County, Ky., where he was born August 23, 1819, one of a family of six children born to James and Jane (Ardrey) Mathers, who came to Orange County, Ind., in the year 1840. Our subject received a very meager education in the subscription schools of his time. He has a wide reputation over the county and adjoining territory as an auctioneer, and as a farmer he has been very successful, owning a farm of 241 acres of improved land (Orangeville Township). He is an active political worker, using his influence in the advocacy of the principles of the Republican party, by whom he has been elected to the office of Township Trustee for five terms, and was their nominee for County Treasurer, failing in election in consequence of their minority, but succeeding in reducing his opponent's majority. January 20, he married Lean Ham, who has borne him eight children, five of whom are now living: Laura, wife of James A. Jenkins; James W., Lizzie, consort of George W. Faucett; Amanda C., wife of John T. Laswell, and Theophilus P. Himself and wife are members of the Christian Church.

Thank you for allowing me to have this memorial. My mother's family was from Orange and Crawford counties and I spent a good deal of time when I was growing up in visiting this area. Most, if not all of the people I used to know from here are now deceased. I believe that's part of the reason I'm drawn to Bluff Springs and to creating memorials for them. I want others to know them, too. Thanks again. I can always count on you.

Greshams in Old Union Cemetery
You have entered two Gresham names in Old Union Cemetery. I would like to thank you for that but I have a question that I hope you can help me with. My Great Great Grandfather was "Esau Gresham" and I have a note that says he was buried in Old Union Cemetery. I will be in Orange County in a few weeks doing some genealogical research - can you tell me how you came to believe there are two Gresham graves in that cemetery. I would like to pursue any leads that you can send my way.

Thanks again for your efforts.

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.
