I wish to say thank you to all those that find their family history important. It is sad that most could care less.

Anyone who wishes to use the photos that I post are welcome to. I know it is sometimes hard to travel to where your loved ones are located as I have found in my research.

If anyone wishes to take over the maintainance of any contribution I add to a cemetery, please contact me and I will transfer it to you.

Good luck and happy hunting.

Find a Grave photos
I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?

Mary Fountain at Chapel Hill
Hello, I just claimed your request for Mary Fountain. I located her inside on the east side of the chapel wall. You had ask if there were other family members by her. Is there anyone you were looking for (because no names were listed). I did photograph some of the names beside her.

RE: Leo Fountain
I did check for others. He was all by him self. Could there be other family members with different last names. Saw where is wife is buried in Saginaw Mi. Can't remember if she past first. But there must be a reason for coming to the Landing area. Just let me know if I can help in any other way.

RE: John O' Connor
No it is ok what you are doing Thanks.

I am helping the Marion Library with the VA. Cemetery. Getting it up to date. I have been taking photos of the head stones for about two years now I have all of Sections 1,2 CS1,CS2 and MA taken now I am working on 3. When I come to any sites that have photo that is OK with me I take the ones I have and keep them. I am going to give the VA and the Library a copy of all my Photos for their keeping.

So if you want to keep taking photos go ahead it is ok with me. I am going to take them to I just will keep mine and not post them.
So again thank you and if you want to keep taking photos at the VA it is ok with me.
