Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in history. When I was a boy I wanted to listen to the family elders tell stories, not play with the other children. I spent a lot of time with older neighbors and my grandparents.

I do some genealogy, Find A Grave, and am working on a history of my small hometown.

I am a pastor (was a school teacher for 28 years before becoming a pastor in 1995) and enjoy working with people. I visit the elderly of the congregation and love their stories. I am now retired but still do visiting of the elderly.

I have been married to Cathy since 1968. She has been in more cemeteries helping me find graves of ancestors and relatives than she ever imagined but is a great sport about it and a great help.

I have always lived in Indiana, mostly in the northeastern part.

I greatly appreciate all those who do Find A Grave, thanks everyone.

I'm doing some research on the Indiana Harrow Company in Berne, Indiana. I believe John was the inventor of a harrow. Do you know of any other information on his harrow? Thank you, Beth

I am Merrill L Bolner's youngest grandson through his youngest son, Donald. Was wondering how you had so much info on my family.

No problem! Thanks for taking care of it. I hate having to send those messages! I really appreciated your message at her funeral. Jan was my great-aunt. Also, I think you had her parents linked in your memorial, is that right? Could you direct me to them? I know it's Earl and Mary Cunningham, but I don't know where they were buried or when they died so I'm having trouble narrowing it down.

re: Ernest Templin
You need to link him to his parents. I can't do anything as I don't control these memorials.
