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 seven years, and its been very fulfilling to me to find distant family members, and especially 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.

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.

I think you need to find just one good story about slaves. I am not sure just when the time frame was but around the Civil War in Missouri. I am related distantly to a family named Cotter. They had slaves evedently but the reason it was told to me is that family came across church records where the slaves married in the church, are buried under the name Cotter and no one knows who they were. I do know that they stayed in the area after they were freed. Other than them, no one in the rest of my dozen or more famiies ever had slaves. I feel the same as you do. My favorite grandaughter of my heart is mixed. And she is beautiful and sweet. 18 years old now.

Slave burials
Derric, I have to tell you a story. There is a cemetery in Missouri, Greene Co, I have very distant family, Cotters buried there. Several years ago a woman wrote to me asking me if I knew that some of the Cotter family had slaves. I wrote back to tell her I never had heard anything about that. So she told me that a group of people wanted to open the graves and do a DNA test. Well it sounded wacky to me so I wanted to know why. I got a message back that the slaves there were buried under the Cotter name and some biggot wanted to find out who was who. Really upset me. My family has 4 gwenerations in Arizona and I really don't want to know. Good for them and hopefully they were treated nice. I found out that couples were even married in the church attached to the grave. I love that part of the story. My family is quite mixed in this last generation, just like it should be.
