Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Bloomington Indiana. My maiden name is Hagan and I research the names Hagan and Lingle on my father's side. My mother's maiden name is May. On my mother's side I research May, Mitchell, Burch, Smiley, Storm, and many others.

I am particularly interested in Monroe County, Indiana families and cemeteries.

My ex-husband's family is from Missouri. I have researched Tucks and Stadlers and others in Missouri.

Some of the graves I have added are not my direct ancestors. If I do not have a personal interest and you do, contact me if you would like me to transfer management. Please let me know what your relationship is to the deceased.

Don't hesitate to contact me with corrections or additions. I'm particularly interested in adding photos to my memorials, so please share photos if you have them. I would also be interested in providing links to family members when they are known.

To Cyndi Fisher: I'm sorry I was inactive during the period you tried to contact me. When I tried to transfer the pages I saw you were no longer a member. If you should become active again email me at

Old Mitchell Cemetery
Beth, We live in Colorado but in a visit to Bedford last spring found a reference to the cemetery you mention in Jacob's memorial # 76933327. "Located on the Dennis Trowbridge farm at Peerless. Recorded by Jessie Thomas and Bernice Martin, April 28, 1965. Stones were broken, scattered and some were being used as stepping stones at the house." A short list followed. Mostly Levi's family (Jacob's Uncle) I believe this is the location of many of our family members. Perhaps if you are close by you might investigate further. Please let me know what you find.

RE: William T B McBee
I don't think I've changed anything on the memorial. Thanks.

RE: Wiley Burch photos
Beth, All of the Burch photos were my mother's (Opal Marie Morahan Tobler). She had written who they were on the back and I remember seeing the photos since I was a child. However, the only source for where the blacksmith shop was came from Frank (George Franklin Burch), my mother didn't know. Frank's father was Thomas Mitchell Burch. Thomas' brother was Joseph Wesley Burch who was a blacksmith in Bokoshe, Le Flore, Oklahoma and my mother's grandfather. Frank went to live with his uncle for awhile and worked in the coal mines in Bokoshe. My mother was also living there with her grandparents at that time and they remembered each other from then. I took my mother back to Missouri in 1988 and we met Frank. I asked him about the blacksmith shop and he said that it was in Hot Springs and I wrote it down in my notes. *** When I just now went back to check my notes, I remembered that Frank and his son had written me some letters after our visit. He had told me that he was going to try and find the old blacksmith shop picture that he had. In one of the letters he said that he couldn't find the picture but described it and said that his grandfather, Wiley, was wearing a white apron and he said that the shop was in Eureka Springs. I guess because they are so similar, it never registered when I read the letter. Hot Springs was in my notes. Since Frank is no longer here, I will blame it on him. So it is Eureka Springs. I will change my records. Charles
