Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started doing my local cemetery and after finding several Civil War vets I thought it would be interesting to look for Revolution and Civil War burials in Dearborn Co. Indiana. That in turn has turned into finding pioneer and forgotten burial grounds in my area also. Will transfer most memorials unless they are my ancestors. Corrections are appreciated, nasty grams are not.
If anyone knows of a Civil War burial, [or Revolutionary War] vet in Dearborn County IN. that I have missed please let me know.
If you want to use photos I have taken ok, just give me credit.

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Rees Family Cemetery
Hi Justin. Visited the cemetery today and did a little cleaning of the brush. There were three markers I found that we did not have a photo. One was Timothy Davis. If you want to go up there, I cleaned a path to go straight up the hill. As you go up the hill after the S corner, about 30 feet past the 5 concrete barriers, walk straight up and slightly to the left.

RE: ira tinker
I have ancestors that are buried in the same cemetery. I don't have any info for Ira Tinker. He was listed in the cemetery records for the cemetery. I posted him because I thought everyone should have a memorial.

RE: Blasdel Cemetery, Ripley Co., IN
Thank you for your reply. Also thank you for the memorial you created for Tavner Cheek in Dearborn County. In addition to his being the brother of Nicholas Cheek (as you mentioned), he is also the brother of Nancy Cheek Green, my 4x-great grandmother.

Blasdel Cemetery, Ripley Co., IN
I see that you have photographed the entrance to Blasdel Cemetery. Do you know anything about an old cemetery, the Woolery Family Cemetery, that is also in Washington Township, Ripley County? It has just a few graves and was located on a farm owned by a Clyde Woolery. I have ancestors buried there and would like to create memorials for them, but I have no idea of its location.
Thank you.

J McLefresh
Bovard Cemetery
Do you know anyone that can help me with records at Bovard Cemetery.

I have found a story in The Recorder, June 17, 1887 stating that Dr. Martin McLefresh died and will be buried in the Bovard Cemetery.

He was a Corpsman in the Civil War and later became a Doctor.

At the time of his death he was living in Milton, Ohio County.

John Lorenz Buchta
Hello Justin,
You created a page for my gr-gr-grandfather, John Lorenz Buchta (Puchta), memorial #34542259. His son, Leonard is also buried in River View Cemetery and has a Find A Grave page (memorial #14893467). Would you be willing to transfer ownership of John's memorial to me or else to create a family link to Leonard's page.

As best I know, the 'correct' spelling of the surname is Puchta or at least that is the spelling that was handed down to my generation.

Thank you.

RE: Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening
Ok, I'm new to Find A Grave so I'm not sure really how it works, but you took photos at St. John's correct? How did you know to attach Dorothea Maria Bierman Wilkening to St. John's? The death date is identical and this has to be the same person, I have no records showing another Bierman married to a Wilkening. Thanks for your help!

Dorothea Marie Bierman Wilkening

Hello, this probably my relative but according to an autobiography written by her son, she was buried with her husband and a granddaughter in Concord Cemetery. I'm wondering why she is attached to St. Johns? Do you have a photo of the marker? There is a shared marker photo for her and her husband in the listings for Concord. This is very confusing!

Thanks for your help!
