Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Jasper County, Indiana. My family has been here since the 1830's. My family research started as a girl scout project and has never stopped. I am familiar with most early families in the county and most cemeteries. I transplanted my husband here from Tennessee and we are raising our 3 boys, the 5th generation, on Stroup land (my mothers family).

RE: Rees family
Mary, Thank you so much for answering. If you could get the names, I would appreciate it. Even if it is only Olive's. On the 1880 census I show names of William, Ollie, James, Samuel, susan, and Solomon. Which girl also goes by Nancy? I have the 1900 census that shows Olive going by Anna so I guess they liked to change around their names alot back then. I would appreciate any photos you have. I think she was such an interesting women.

Thanks again

Hi, I am the great granddaughter of Olive Ann Rees Watson. I would like to know if you know the names of the children in the order they are in, in the picture. Olive died when I was small, so I have no idea what she looked like. You can also contact me at

Thank you

I found a biographical sketch of John T. Faris that I thought you might want to add to his memorial. Let me know if you want it.
Thanks, Joanne

Hi Mary,
I attempted to connect Sarah to her parents Alva and Elizabeth Cockerill Yeoman but did not find the edit button for family relationship available. During a recent trip to the DAR library in Wasington DC, I copied the complete file on Stepehn Yeoman's descendants. Info there confirmed the relationship. Could you please make the connection?
Thank you!

A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.
