Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have just recently begun researching my geneology. I have many connections to the Parke County area of Indiana. My family grew up in Lena, Indiana 120 years ago.
I am researching the names of my mother's Indiana relatives. They are: Newton, Peach, Coombes, Dickerson, and Reeves. They come from the Putnam and Parke Counties of Indiana.
My paternal relatives are from Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York and Michigan. The names are Damaschke and Anderson

RE: Harold Glenn Lawson photo
Nice catch, Blue Bird! :) I don't know how I missed Norris's original memorial but I did and thanks to you, I see the error and have deleted my duplication. Thank you for keeping me on my toes!

Luella Lawson photo
Thank you for providing the photo of Luella Lawson's headstone. I wonder, if you still have it, would you mind adding the same photo to Memorial #134568071 for her husband, Elmer? If you do not, may I use your photo and give you credit for it? I will wait to hear from you. Again, thanks!

Harold Glenn Lawson photo
Thank you, Bluebird, for your generosity in providing a photo of little Harold Glenn's marker. I wonder if you would mind adding the same photo to that of his older brother Norris, Memorial #148405070, if you still have it. If not, may I have your permission to use the photo you've taken (with photo credit to you) so I can put it on Norris's memorial page? Again, thanks whatever your decision. All is appreciated!

Helen Newton Colgrove
Why don't you call Elmwood cemetery in Hammond - 219-844-7077. Clyde Colgrove seems he would be responsible to have taken care of his mother. There was no local obituary.

RE: Helen V. Colgrove
They are not listed in the Chesterton cemetery index. Where did they live - what were their dates?
