RE: Anderson Alder tintype photo

I will reply to your email address. I don't mind at all if you would like to see it in person. For now I can send you photos of Anderson Alder's bible and the family photos within it. As I said before, the bible itself is in really bad condition, but fortunately the family photos, marriage certificate, etc. are all in good shape.

RE: Memorial# 23413939 Hanna Ada Andis
Hi Matt,

Memorial #23413939 is for Ottie Mitchell. His wife was Memorial #116981571, and her name was Hannah (Andis) Mitchell. Is she the one that you want transferred? I can also transfer her husband and any others that you want.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding this. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Glenda in Muncie, IN.

RE: Anderson Alder tintype photo
Yes, in 2011 I was given a large leather-bound bible owned by Anderson Alder. It is in very poor condition (pages falling apart easily) and in dire need of being restored. It has "Anderson Alder" embossed on the front cover, and his signature "A. Alder" is written inside the back cover. One entire page is a beautiful, colored "Marriage Contract" signed by himself and his second wife, Martha Ann Hubbard. In the back are about 5 old photos, mostly of babies (all likely his grandchildren) one of a woman (unidentified so far), and the tin-type photo of Anderson himself. One of the baby photos has the name "Allen J. Alder" written on the backside, which I know for certain was one of his grandchildren. Also tucked within its pages are miscellaneous items such as dried plant leaves, an old post card, etc.
By the way, back in the 1980s I inherited other items that had belonged to Anderson Alder and his wife Martha, including an old photograph album, multiple loose photos, a large "Family Record" containing multiple family names, and several loose pages from Anderson's bible containing family births, deaths and marriages. I now own the bible that those loose pages were removed from.

RE: Memorial# 67132935 William McKinley Gee
Hi Matthew, William McKinley Gee's wife Callie (Bales) Gee was the
daughter of my great-grandfather's sister, Loretta (Osmon) Bales.
So I'm not directly related to him. If you're working on the Gee's I'd
be glad to transfer him, as long as he's kept connected to Callie.
Just let me know.

RE: James B. Callaway # 101582225
Check on the website for marriage record of Josephine Callaway in Marion County, Indiana, in 1920... daughter of James B Callaway and Minnie Maude Van Arsdale. Hope this will help.

RE: James B. Callaway # 101582225
No, Matthew, I'm not related to James Callaway... I just volunteer to take pictures of graves to add to Find a Grave. I'm guessing that Mr. Callaway was someone's father, because if he were a priest, I think the "Father" would be on the same line as his name. Most of the graves I've seen with "Father" on top like that it's because it's someone's actual father. There's a grave for another Callaway at the same cemetery with the word "Baby" on the top with birth and death dates the same (1945). I've seen lots of graves with "Mother" on the top like Mr. Callaway's "Father". I have seen priests' graves with Father or Fr in the same line as the name, just as I've seen graves of nuns with Sister or Sr in the same line as the name. Again, I'm just guessing, but I believe Mr. Callaway was probably someone's dad.

RE: Edward Condon
You're very welcome. It happens a gravestone. There are a lot of unmarked graves in Crown Hill.

RE: Augustus Condon
Hi Matthew -- You are quite welcome and thanks for the compliments! There is usually a "method to my madness" in my photos. For example, if you click on the 2nd photo on Arriminta's memorial, you will see in the comments that it is a photo of a whole group of Condons (9 in all). Also on the Augustus memorial, the 2nd photo shows a grave directly behind his -- this is his daughter's grave (last name Gross). (I have posted photos on both memorials). I will be posting more Condon photos today. I am not happy with the Augustus photo (it was sunset and the sun was right in my camera)and will redo sometime this week. I have also claimed your request for Arey Condon in Taylorsville. I've never been to this cemetery and it may prove challenging, but I love a challenge! I will get to that as soon as it stops raining. Best regards, Jan
