Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently in the process of taking a picture of every headstone in Spring Vale Cemetery (Lafayette IN). If i can get it done, over 17,000 names listed for this cemetery. I will try to update as i go. There is a picture for every headstone in Sections 2, 3, 15 & 34 right now.

If you would like a full size copy of a photo i took (10 megapixel) please email me with the name & cemetery and i will send it to you. If you would like me to add anything to my pages, just let me know.

My parents started our family history back in the early 70's and after they passed away i was given all the information... just recently got the "bug" to continue their work. I am researching the last name "Johnston" from Washington Pennsylvania and Hubbard Ohio and "Nangle" "Rauschenbach" and "McCollums" from the Youngstown Ohio and New Castle Pennsylvania areas. I am also looking for "Mitchell" from the southern Illinois and northern Indiana areas. Please feel free to contact me.

**UPDATE** We moved to Kansas for 3 years but back in Indiana and will try to look for headstones again.

Hello Brenda -
I see you are researching Rauschenbach as part of your family lines. If you would like to email me I may be able to give you a little bit of information. My step-grandfather was Otto Rauschenbach whose memorial you added to Find A Grave.Terri

The memorials for Andrew J. Knight in Old Smedley Cemetery, (5338479 & 5338477) are duplicates. But that is not the main problem, the date of death for Andrew J. Knight on the stone is wrong, it shows him as having died November 16, 1903, but he actually died November 16, 1943. I guess the only solution is to put a note on the memorial that the date on the stone is wrong. I have him in census records with his wife and/or daughter up to the 1940 census. Forgot if you could delete the 5338479 memorial that would be great.

Just wanted to let you know that I requested some edits. It's my understanding that you are not notified by Find A Grave. I am trying to link my family together.
Thank you for your time and dedication to these memorials. It is much appreciated.
