Bio and Links
I caught the genealogy bug three years ago when my 9 year son was working on a project for school. We worked together gathering some family history and he produced a small family tree, etc.
Since then, I have worked on the family tree extensively. I have added thousands of people, hunderds of pictures and now with FAG, I will be able to add more information. I have started traveling to areas of the country to try and locate specific information. I is very exciting when I find a new piece of the puzzle.
In addition, I think that the preservation work being done by FAG is wonderful. Think of all the history that is being documented.

Grangers@ Plainfield Cemetery
I have added most of the cemetery memorials within this cemetery because more than about half the cemetery is related to me...abject some what very very distantly, and because when I was seeking burial info on the web, I found about 4 different listings for this cemetery, with more differences shown than similarities. The listing for Fred P. Granger came from the cemetery listing done by Doris Trickey. Supposedly, this information came directly from the burial records themselves, and NOT from a walk through the cemetery. The information can be accessed here...Plainfield Cemetery. The information is shown as:
(Remember that the dates are supposed to be burial dates).

Row 16, Lot 10, Steve Stevens
Steve Stevens Nov. 22, 1913
Mrs. Pearl Mary Granger Dec. 14, 1959
Fred P. Granger Feb. 15, 1946
Florence Stevens Nov. 4, 1914

Her information is NOT accurate and had just as much wrong/bad information as good information was provided. Note also, that it was not listed if there is or is not a marker. This is the only one of the four that their names were listed on.

Hope this helps clear up this for you.

Musselwhite, Elkins Cemetery
Gary, there are 2 cemetery surveys for Elkins. The first one (2000 with corrections maded in 2006) reads
MUSSELWHITE, Louis C. - 7 Apr 1901 - 27 Apr 1901
son of N.E. & R.W. Musselwhite
The second one from 2008 reads
Musselwhite, Louis G., son of M.E. & R.W. Musselwhite - April 7, 1901-April 27, 1901

Let me know what you think or if you like, I can transfer him to you.

Thank you for the photo of Arthur Flores. The prisoner cemetery is so sad. I didn't realize they even allowed family stones too. I guess that was in the ground in front of the prisoner stone.
