Bio and Links
I have been interested in collecting antique photos since about when I was in 6th grade or middle school, and I have been interested in genealogy since high school. I have lots of families I am interested, both my own and the families of people in identified photos I buy in antique stores.

I have so many families I am researching, it is easier to go by location rather than family name.

Places in which I am only researching my family: Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Connecticut, Maryland

Places in which I am only researching families from my photo collection: Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Vermont. Please feel free to request transfer of memorials from these states.

Places in which I am researching both my family and my collection: Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Arkansas, Missouri

I am always happy to help people with their research, especially if they can help me with mine in return. I can look up cemetery records, birth records, death records, etc. for much of Indiana at my local library, especially the south-central part. This includes Brown, Clay, Daviess, Greene, Johnson, Lawrence, Martin, Monroe, Morgan, Orange, and Owen Counties.

Dear Anna, I sent you edits yesterday for Earl and his wife Maude, mostly to add her maiden name (Gregory) and her parents. I am working on researching my relatives that are in Veale Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. Would love any photos of Gregory, Smoot, Robinson or Clarks, some others. I love your hobby! Mine has become researching and linking (seems like) everyone who branches from relatives in old Veale Creek. Good to meet you. Lily

I believe my Great-Grandfather, Peter Phillip Heidt (1862-1937), was you Great-Great-Grandfather's brother. I am trying to get info on the parents (both born in Germany). Father: Johann G (John) Heidt. I have no last name for the mother, & various 1st names (Jane, Eva, Genevive).
I am hoping you can shed some light....??

George Dye Memorial
I noticed you left a note at this memorial saying he was your great-great grandfather. I am not actually a relative of his, so I would be glad to transfer this memorial to you. I am actually researching his wife Joyce's family, the Mosiers, since I have an album belonging to her nephew that I purchased in an antique store. If you are also descended from Joyce and would like to manage her memorial too, I'll be glad to transfer hers to you as well.

Just seen this post of long ago above - no his 1st wife Elizabeth Gastineau is my line of descent.

That must be neat to have the album - Sending this along to post as to the family etc of George should of gone it long ago - I'll go see if I can link some of the kids to him.

George had a number of acres of land in Greene county, Indiana that he continued to own while in Illinois. He is mentioned in a 1882 history of the county as being a fairly prominent citizen in Elliotstown area where he did some farming but also owned a store, hotel and blacksmith shop. (possibly with his older brother John Alvadore dye) he is both the 1870 and 1880 census records for Effingham but by 1884 he is back in Greene county, buying more land, mainly lots in town of Lyons) he also sold a number of lots in that town and was listed as a merchant on his death certificate in 1909. The death certificate said that he had cancer of the lip and stomach and was senile.

George and John moved to Effingham and settled in that area because of speculation that a railroad was to pass through that town. the railroad ended up farther east and George evidentially went back to his holdings in Indiana. John lived out his years in Effingham and is the father of the most subsequent generations of dye's in that county.

Thanks for the additional info on Benton Moser! It has been added to the memorial. I looked for the stone of Flora Fraim when I was at Goodwill last month, but I was unable to locate the stone. If you by chance know the location of her stone, that would really be good. I'm hopeful to make a trip to Loogootee again very soon. Thanks again!
