Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Indianapolis, IN. I'm a big Colts, Pacers and Fever fan, and a Hong Kong Phooey fan also. I like to go to all the cemeteries around here and some outside of Indy to help families find their loved ones, relatives and friends that normally can't travel here to see them. I've been doing research on my own family for a little over nine years, and its been very fulfilling to me to find distant family members, and especially the ones that have been forgotten. I'm currently researching the names Waller, Dimmitt, Pippin, Wilson, and Ferlines in and around the areas of Morganfield, Marion, Henderson, Crittenden, and Uniontown, Kentucky. Gold Hill, Shawneetown, and Old Shawneetown, Illinois, and Mount Vernon (Posey Co.), Indiana. I would greatly appreciate any help from anyone who can help me in those areas, and I would also help anyone who needed it.

Please visit the Slave Cemetery in my Virtual Cemeteries Section before you go, letter (F) on my virtual cemeteries list. There are so many people buried in those cemeteries that were taken from their families, beaten, chained, mistreated, lynched, unnamed, and forgotten while they were alive, as well after they had died. Please leave a little love for them to show them that they are not forgotten.

Please leave a token for our military people, letter (H) in my cemetery list. They are the ones that kept this country free, lets not forget them. Thanks so much.

Leonard Family- Weston, Iowa
Good Afternoon Mr. Deon,
I saw your photo request and slipped over to the St. Columbanus Cemetery this afternoon and fulfilled your request for a picture of the grave of Francis M. Leonard. We live within a mile of the cemetery. It has been entered on his Find-A-Grave Memorial Page. While there, I took a picture of the other Leonard family member's graves, and have added those photos as well. Just wanted to let you know they are there now.
Thank you,
Audrey Haverkamp

My mother believes that my great Aunt Lillian Taylor (surname), may be buried at New Crown Hill. We don't have any information on her other than she lived. We don't know if she married. She was originally from Kentucky. Father's name Ike Taylor and Mother Charity Williams. I'm African American. If this sounds familiar, please contact me.
