Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been restoring gravestones and whole cemeteries for about 11 years. As a middle school teacher, I've led over a dozen field trips to clean, repair and reset gravestones in Indiana and New Hampshire cemeteries. I have also visited each cemetery in Hendricks County, Indiana and taken GPS readings and photos of them. This information is on the INPCRP site.
I am more than happy to edit or transfer memorials--just ask!

Primitive Baptist
The photo posted for Primitive Baptist Cemetery on Find A Grave in February 2017 is actually of the Danville East Cemetery which starts at the gate. Primitive Baptist Cemetery is the front portion from Wayne Street up to the gate. Not everyone knows that there are actually two cemeteries in this location or where the dividing line is located.
Message me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Find A Grave Memorial# 163013833
Hi name is Wendy and I am a member of Find A Grave. The Stillings are part of my family. You have done a great job with their memorials. I was looking at the one I referenced here and was wondering that since Elviras burial and gravestone has been found I wonder if this could be another child. In the 1880 census it shows a son named Amos born about 1870 living with Benjamin and Elvira. Susan Moulton would have been his mother. They lost so many young children ...just a thought...

Shannon Cemetery, Hendricks County
I think you will be happy to hear that my husband and I spent the last week clearing fallen limbs and briars from the Shannon Cemetery on our farm. I was a big job but badly needed. He also pulled the blue construction pipes out of that area. Nearly all of the grave stones are down but at least it is now accessable from late October through early April when no crops are in the surrounding fields. During the time we have owned the farm, four different groups of people have stopped by to inquire about the cemetery. I keep a list of burials that I got from the Indiana Room at the Danville Library to share with them. The staff there remember you and your good work during the time you lived here. You have posted much more information than we had about the people buried there. Thank you.

Hugh Smith
I am researching Hugh Smith. I am writing a biography of Marilyn Monroe and I believe Hugh Smith and his wife Mary Polly Wilson are her great-great-grandparents. On the 1850 census in Hendricks Co, Indiana their birthplace is PA. They may have been married in Nicholas Co, KY 9/4/1806. Would you mind looking at the stones again to see if it gives birthplace as PA? Their daughter Elizabeth married James Appleton. Their daughter Mary E Appleton married Jacob Monroe, their son Otis married Della Mae Hogan. Thier daughter Gladys was Marilyn's mother.

Fleece cemetery
Someone has requested a photo for Susan Clay. I see that you cleaned and restored at this cemetery and took pictures of the stones. Since there isn't one for several of them, I am assuming they were not clear enough to get info from. Please let me know if I am correct in assuming this. Thank you.

joseph Audsley
Joseph Audsley b. 1812 Yorkshire England who died in Saline co Missouri was not the son of Francis and Mary Sharp. His parents were William Edward and Ellen Ackroyd Audsley. Francis and Mary Sharp Audsley did have a son named Joseph, but he is a different one.

McCartee plot on Kennard Hill Rd
Hi Jessica,

I was so happy to see our cemetery listed on the site thanks very much!

I would be very appreciative if you would transfer the McCartee plot on Kennard Hill Rd. Porter Oxford County Maine USA to me. We have owned this property since 2007. My husband, son and I have spent many days clearing the area, and straightening the headstones for Mary and Lucinda McCartee. We carefully added new footings for the headstones winch were on the verge of destruction and are happy to say that they are straight and strong. My Aunt plants flowers there and we added a beautiful red rhododendron alongside. Prior to our ownership the site overgrown and was not view able from the road. We take great care in maintaining the site and feel that it is a great adornment to our property.

Thank you
