Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired teacher who is doing some family research. Have always been interested in family stories of the past. I was raised in Indiana (Indianapolis) but now live in Portland, Oregon. I have relatives who are buried in Sheridan, IN and Kingman, IN that I hope to find photos of. I also want to be a photo volunteer. Thank you for this web site.

RE: Cowgill / Timmons
As far as I know , Joel did marry sisters, Huldah Timmons Oct 1858,(possibly in Tippecanoe County, Indiana) Huldah died Oct 1863. He married Martha Jane Timmons June 1864 (possibly Warren County, INdiana) I am not sure about the Watkins query?
Joel may have been married first to one Elizabeth Talbert about 1849 with 3 children being born Lavinia Eva born 1854; Corydon and Morford.
Davis cemetery reading in the late 1970s indicates Mortford Cowgill son of J.& E. died 4/23/1851..6d; and Corydon A. son of J. & E. died 9/01/1850 8m 21d. There is a listing for Georgie Cowgill son of J. & M.J. died 09/03'1875...7m22d.
Hope this helps.

RE: Nora Nelson
Okay, I received a reply from the cemetery. The family is in Garden (or Block) A, Section 103. Carrie is in Lot 1, Albert is in Lot 2, and Norra is in Lot 3. The only one who has a headstone is Carrie (per the cemetery worker who went out to look at the lots). Albert's memorial is #66514840. Could you please remove the photo you took? It is for the other Albert Nelson buried at Forest Lawn.

Thanks for all your help.

RE: Nora Nelson
I called the cemetery again and gave them the information. I talked to a different person this time. She is supposed to look into it and call me back regarding Albert and Norra Nelson. I'll let you know what I find out.

Thanks so much for your time.

RE: Nora Nelson
Carrie Mae Nelson was Norra's mother. So they are buried in the same plot?

Thanks for trying to get a photo!

Albert Nelson
No, that doesn't look like the correct stone for my Albert. I got the plot location from a person at the cemetery. I will have to e-mail them and see if there has been a mix up in the plot location.

RE: Cowgill
I am not a direct descendant of Mary Eleanor (Bailey) Timmons, she was a dau/ of William B. Bailey, I am a direct descendant of William's brother Horatio Bailey.
I was named for my grandmother on my mother's side of the family.

My email address is I have more on the Bailey and Timmons lines.
