|Bio and Links|
I am an avid genealogist and have been researching my family and my husband's family for 35+ years. We have traveled quite a bit to find ways around my "brick walls" and have been to lots of cemeteries and taken lots of pictures. I'm glad to have a chance to share some of this information on Find A Grave. My husband, Jim, deserves credit for all of the pictures as he patiently visits cemetery after cemetery with me.|
PLEASE if you find an error or have additional information on any of the people I have posted, email me or suggest an edit. I will be glad to make additions and corrections so that the information is as accurate as possible.
I am doing Find A Grave work to honor our ancestors and, hopefully, to help others find information on their own ancestors. I found this message on Beverly Sprowl Teibel's contribtor page, and it expresses my sentiments as well. "Find A Grave gives a voice to those who are not in the history books or the sports records. It lets us put our family, our true heroes who make us what we are and to an extent what we will become in the future, out there for the world to see and honor."
The pictures that we have taken may be used by families and descendants. However, pictures taken for 19th and 20th Indiana soldiers have been taken for the 19th Indiana web site of Phil Harris and may NOT be posted on other web sites without my permission.
Thanks to all of you who have posted information and photos on Find A Grave and to those who process the edits. This is a great way to preserve information, and in doing so, preserve our past.
I found this letter in the bio of Bobby Jett and had to add it to my bio as well. Genealogists do indeed feel this connection.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Oops, sorry. Meant to that, actually. I'll be more careful!

Thanks a lot for the photo. I've been trying to get back to that cemetery for the past couple of years. But, I just haven't. So, this really helps.

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. Once I have some time I will forward some add'l information concerning my GGG Grandfather.
|Frank Wallace||Arthur Wallace # 108467923|
I am checking on the placement of the following and unable to locate where the info might have come from. Any help would be appreciated.
First name is spelled "Author" on his tombstone and in some other records. He was born in 1776 or 1777 in Ireland or Maryland.
Records from Evangelical Reformed Church in Frederick, MD show Maria Greber to Arthur Wallis, Wit. Catherine Breber
Other records show that Arthur married Mary Graver on 12 Apr 1796 in Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland.
John G., Elizabeth, Catherine, William G., Samuel, Sally, Arthur, David, Polly, Charles, Mary Ann, Hiram L., and twins who were born and died 26 Feb 1813.
Arthur was a tanner.
Family Bible is said to be on file at Filson Club in Louisville, KY.
