Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very familiar with Hendricks and Morgan counties of Indiana and the Quakers who settled there. When taking pictures I won't disturb a stone as they are so brittle and "granular" now as compared to when I started taking pictures of them 30+ years ago. To use brushes, chalk, soaps and chemicals would likely wipe out any text that had been carved in (especially the very old ones). Please be careful with these old stones - once damage has been done from cleaning, it's likely irrepairable. Please check findagrave discussion forums or your local department of natural resources for alternatives to bring out the text on these stones safely. Please be careful so the next person after you will be read this precious genealogical resource! Thank you.

Please note that I have a lot going on right now and it may take a bit to get back with you, and I would be happy to update memorials with sourced documentation. Thank you in advance for your patience.

PLEASE DO NOT use any of my photos prior to asking and receiving written permission. Should you wish to use my photos - please post a message below with the memorial name and number along with a description/source of what my photos will be used for, the description(s) of photos you wish to have permission to use along with your name, contributor ID number and an email address where you can be contacted back at. I will not consider any request that has less than the information as outlined above.

I would appreciate virtual flowers and notes left on my Revolutionary War ancestor's memorials - William Hoyt (memorial # 68922225) who was killed in battle at Fort Ticonderoga, and his son Benjamin (memorial # 120139805) who was in the same troop and witnessed his father being shot and killed.

Thank you.

RE: Elizabeth P. Moore Keeney
Thanks, I already had pics of them actually but went looking for another I had claimed (didn't find :-( ) and took more. I still have other photos I haven't posted. Guess we all do that! Thanks again!

Sarah Vestal and William Hardy Vestal
I have left previous messages for you on April 11 and April 14 concerning editing the name of Sarah Adeline Record Vestal (you have her listed as Sarah A Vestal) as well as adding her parents John Franklin Record and Rachel Teague Record. I also request that you transfer the memorials of Sarah A Vestal and William Hardy Vestal to me. They are my 2x gg. Thank you!

Elizabeth P. Moore Keeney
I just wanted to let you know that I removed the picture I posted to this memorial because I realize it was the wrong person. I have created a new memorial for that person. You may want to re-post your photo request for the Keeney memorial since I claimed it with the photo I have since removed. Sorry!

John Weesner
You have a photo on the page for John Weesner, died in 1896 and buried in West Union Cemetery. Your photo is wrong. It gives and estimated location for him, and his location is known as he has a stone. Please remove your photo.

Thank You,
Mark McCrady

William Townsend
Hi, I have ancestors buried in the Sugar Grove Friends Cem., Plainfield, IN. Ann Hockett Townsend was my aunt a few generations back. I have walked the cemetery and have seen William Townsend's tombstone. I believe it is very near his in law's, Jesse and Jane (Millikan) Hockett. The Plainfield-Guilford Twp. Public Library has records for this cemetery. They may have him listed in a row by row record of the stone inscriptions. Luann
