Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I have been doing family Genealogy as far back as I can remember. My Great Aunt Pauline had me walking in cemeteries as soon as I was old enough to walk. My aunt Pauline Myers died in 2000 but I still carry on with her research.

This is a wonderful place to remember our loved ones and too pass along information to others. Coming from a military family I have been trying to record the graves of the Veterans, especially the civil war vets. Many of the old stones are gone but with a sight like this maybe they will not be forgotten. My daughter and I spend weekends finding old cemeteries that have been forgotten, (a lot of walking). We have also recorded cemeteries where all headstones are gone and the only records for these graves are recorded at the county library.

I want to thank Dave and Apple Dwiggins for the info on the Indiana Service men who were killed during World War II, and are buried at the Manila American Cemetery. See their web page here.

My grandma, Inez Rogers (Buried at Grandview Cemetery, Vigo Co. IN) died Aug. 7th 2009 if you have time please visit her memorial and leave a flower.

If you look at Albert S. Squires #72435179 (Rowe Cemetery, Rockville, Indiana) you will see that your Robert S. Squir needs to be deleted. You have entered the wrong name.

Thank you

Hello Mrs. Long,
Thanks for the reply, I have looked, there was a link that gave a 203 that is was or no longer present, and i was on the Find a Grave from your Grandmother:-)Nice.
If you see the relatives of him, i'm busy with his Bio now (for)placing on the website, but first I wanna ask him or her if its OK with him/her, and because I know things they don't know.
Regards Jean Louis

RE: Joan Leona Stone
No she did not. I don't even think they were married that long. I don't have a divorce date but she was with someone else a couple years later. I know the marriage wasn't a harmonious relationship though I think they were in each other's lives for years. I have pictures of him with my grandmother when she was very young. Right around the age my great grandmother would've divorced my great grandfather. I also have a couple pictures of Charlie's daughters.

Hi Vada,
Thank you very much for transferring his memorial.
Glad that your husband came home. I'm sure he lost a few friends in Vietnam, as I did when I was there in 1969 with the 3rd Marines.

Harrison Joslin
Harrison Joslin was born in Warren County, Ohio, not in Cuyahoga Countu, Ohio. Records show his father living there from ca 1804 until after 1820.
