Bio and Links
Bio Photo My main focus here is on connecting the dots between my ancestors and my wife's ancestors. Lately, I've been focusing on my wife's great-great-great grandparents, John and Elizabeth Bitterling of Monterey, IN. They had three children: Clara, Ida and Charles. John adopted the three. My wife is a descendent of Charles. Clara, Charles' older sister, had three children before an untimely death at age 40. I've been working on establishing links between Clara and her three children: Lydia, Oliver and George. I also keep an eye on the cemeteries in my local area as time permits, trying to fulfill photo requests as I find them.

Thank you for taking the photo of the headstone.
I am unable to take pictures myself, so I really appreciate people who do this.

Thanks so much for the Fritz photos from Winamac!
Ione may have had a similar situation to one you're researching, as she and her siblings were adopted out to different families as children, after the deaths of their parents. So tragic, but Findagrave allows us to reunite them in a way, and to help tell their stories.

Thanks so much for finding my error on Rose. I have deleted the duplicate.

I connect at #1455967216 . I appreciate the extra eyes and I was aware of the married name and somehow missed the dup.

Thanks Bunches

Thank you so much for the Photos of my great aunt Hellen's grave. I live over 100 miles away and had given up hope of ever seeing it. If you ever get back there, her sister, Sophie Wydra Cervenka, is also buried at St Jacob.
