Jesse Smith 23284929
I'm trying to confirm if this is the same Jesse Smith that was the husband of Nancy Wright, married in March 1862 in Marion County, Indiana. If so, then he is my 2nd great grandfather. The death date for this Jesse is in the correct date range. Could you share with me whether this is the same Jesse Smith? Thank you so much in advance for any information.

Rees Family Cemetery
Hi Justin. Visited the cemetery today and did a little cleaning of the brush. There were three markers I found that we did not have a photo. One was Timothy Davis. If you want to go up there, I cleaned a path to go straight up the hill. As you go up the hill after the S corner, about 30 feet past the 5 concrete barriers, walk straight up and slightly to the left.

RE: ira tinker
I have ancestors that are buried in the same cemetery. I don't have any info for Ira Tinker. He was listed in the cemetery records for the cemetery. I posted him because I thought everyone should have a memorial.

RE: Blasdel Cemetery, Ripley Co., IN
Thank you for your reply. Also thank you for the memorial you created for Tavner Cheek in Dearborn County. In addition to his being the brother of Nicholas Cheek (as you mentioned), he is also the brother of Nancy Cheek Green, my 4x-great grandmother.

I see that you have photographed the entrance to Blasdel Cemetery. Do you know anything about an old cemetery, the Woolery Family Cemetery, that is also in Washington Township, Ripley County? It has just a few graves and was located on a farm owned by a Clyde Woolery. I have ancestors buried there and would like to create memorials for them, but I have no idea of its location.
Thank you.

J McLefresh
Bovard Cemetery
Do you know anyone that can help me with records at Bovard Cemetery.

I have found a story in The Recorder, June 17, 1887 stating that Dr. Martin McLefresh died and will be buried in the Bovard Cemetery.

He was a Corpsman in the Civil War and later became a Doctor.

At the time of his death he was living in Milton, Ohio County.

John Lorenz Buchta
Hello Justin,
You created a page for my gr-gr-grandfather, John Lorenz Buchta (Puchta), memorial #34542259. His son, Leonard is also buried in River View Cemetery and has a Find A Grave page (memorial #14893467). Would you be willing to transfer ownership of John's memorial to me or else to create a family link to Leonard's page.

As best I know, the 'correct' spelling of the surname is Puchta or at least that is the spelling that was handed down to my generation.

Thank you.

RE: Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening
Ok, I'm new to Find A Grave so I'm not sure really how it works, but you took photos at St. John's correct? How did you know to attach Dorothea Maria Bierman Wilkening to St. John's? The death date is identical and this has to be the same person, I have no records showing another Bierman married to a Wilkening. Thanks for your help!

Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening

Hello, this probably my relative but according to an autobiography written by her son, she was buried with her husband and a granddaughter in Concord Cemetery. I'm wondering why she is attached to St. Johns? Do you have a photo of the marker? There is a shared marker photo for her and her husband in the listings for Concord. This is very confusing!

Thanks for your help!

Lewis Ott 47235540

I searched for my great uncle, Louis Frederick Ott, and didn't find him. I created a new entry numbered 158113144. I just discovered that you had him listed as Lewis F. Ott 47235540. Do you know how to merge or delete people? I would be happy to take possession of his record if you like. Also, if you happen to be in Union M.E. Church Cemetery in the future could you please take a photo of his grave? The rest of the family was from, and stayed in, Louisville, KY. After his wife died, Bud just kind of wandered away and no one in the family knew what happened to him until I found his death while doing genealogy.

Thank you,

RE: Grave of Sarah Harris
Thanks, Justin, and no problem. I'm now thinking my view of the Holman Hill Cemetery was mistaken and I'm looking instead back to the old Conwell Street Cemetery for the burial of Sarah Harris. Her grave is not listed in the records transcribed for this site, but her brother-in-law Francis Harris, who arrived in Aurora from England just two days after Sarah's burial, expired on Oct. 1, 1823 (less than 7 weeks after Sarah) and, as Samuel Harris's letters relate, was buried next to Sarah. There is a gravestone for Francis in the 'Old Conwell Street' section of River View Cemetery, but apparently nothing for Sarah. I am going to have to write to the River View Cemetery Association to see if they have information not showing on this site, as also about one or two other details of Harris family members' graves (William Tell Harris, his second wife Sarah Harris, and Susanna Lawford - Samuel Harris's daughter). I have been reading the excellent information about River View at and it seems to clear up our previous question about the Holman & Probst family cemeteries. The Probst family and Buffington family cemeteries were transferred to River View, as also Holman burials from Veraestau (so they say). Thanks again and sorry about the rain. We have had too much rain here as well, with vast areas of northern England and Scotland under flood water - never seen anything like it. Best regards, David

Grave of Sarah Harris
Dear Justin, Thank you for your listings of 36 graves in the Holman Hill Cemetery, Aurora, Ind. I am presently researching some old letters written by Samuel Harris of Aurora, 1821-1832, whose wife Sarah Harris died 1823 and, from the remarks written at the time by Samuel, seems to me must have been buried in the Holman Hill Cemetery. Unfortunately her name does not appear among those you list. Is the listing complete? Could there be more names to add? Or are some graves unmarked, as far as you know? I have no means of searching for myself, as I live in England. You may care to look up an earlier draft of my work on the letters by Googling 'Harris-Brown letters', on the second page of which you will also find my email address. Many thanks for help and best wishes, David Brady

Good job
Justin, I love what you said about being among the "chosen" to find people. Bless your heart. I too have that same calling, only now I am too disabled to travel, and unable to visit each place.

The work you are doing is invaluable to thousands. I know you will meet on the other side all those who want to thank you for what you are doing.

Keep doing what your doing. Gentle hugs from an old lady in the distance.

Ohio County Cemeteries
I haven't heard from you in quite awhile! My dad and I are planning on visiting Ohio County in the near future and I noticed that you have a virtual cemetery for Ohio county. Is this a comprehensive list of all of the veterans buried there? I noticed that there were only 80 names. In our county we have over 1,200 Civil War veterans buried. Is the low number because it is such a small county? Thanks for your help, as always.

Hi Justin,

Sgt. William Frank Griffith (35794499) was my wife's GGGGfather. I'm hoping you know where the birth and death information on the memorial was obtained. Please let me know if you get a chance.

Philip Warren Rupp
transfer of my Great-Grandfather's gravesite
Hi Justin,
My name is Philip Warren Rupp. William Rupp, buried in East Fork Cemetery, is my Great-Grandfather. My "DAD" was very proud of his Grandfather; as I am, of the both of them. My near future plans are to replace his wife's and three daughters missing stones. My Parents took me this cemetery many times over the years. Very sadly, they too, are both gone; but I still stop to pay my respects to my Great-Grandparents and my Great Aunts buried at East Fork. It would mean a great deal to maintain my Great-Grandfather's gravesite. Am also going to add his biography. Thank You in advance for your kindness. Very Sincerely, Philip W Rupp

RE: Kyle
Hello again I just read what you den me again there's only 2 markers (headstones) that I've found do you know what happened to all the others they dug up in 2007? I ask the previous owner who and why someone was digging there and how they knew they was there? She had no idea anyone did any of that
