Bio Photo I apologize...but due to age and health I am unable to visit Cemeteries and take photographs. I wish I could! It was my favorite "Field Trip" to wander through an old cemetery!
Southern Indiana has fascinating Whetstone Tombstones. They look as if they were just carved yesterday! And the area had many famous Stonecarvers...
CORRECTION in messages about John Morgan Armstrong. His father WAS NOT this Robert Armstrong II. Can you help?

Mary Jane "Polly" Lovelace Porter
Hello Margaret,
I was thrilled to find the picture of Polly in your memorial for her. Her brother Reason Jr is my gggf.
I have a copy of my great grandmother's photo album, Reason Jr's dau Sarah Ann Lovelace Johnson. There are many many unidentified photos in it. Would you be interested in receiving a link to the photos with the hopes that you are other family members you are in contact with might be able to identify pictures. They are all very fine studio photos. There is a good chance some may be of her aunts and uncles.
Do you have any other photos in Polly's family?
My best

Tried to email you with picture of grave site but bounced back. Send me your correct address and will email you the pic. He has an unmarked grave, but we have a picture of the grave site.

Emmaline Lewis Houston memorial
I was out at the cemetery today and took a photo of Emmaline Houston's headstone #87354424. Posted it in her memorial. You may want to move her photo up as the headstone photo took the top space. All dates on the headstone are correct with the memorial, hard to see it on the stone.

Ida Baker Shoop
Would you allow me to use your photo of Ida and her siblings on a family tree ( Ida was married to Jake Shoop, the great grand uncle of a dear friend who I am helping with her tree. I will credit the photo to you of course.
Thanks so much.

RE: Sorry..
This is the message I sent yesterday to: Karen Donner (#47731687). She said she is sending me the additional info off of the stones she has been photographing.
Hi Karen,
I am trying to make the changes as you send them. I am trusting that you are pretty sure the information is correct. I am getting hundreds of changes from 2 or 3 other people. I think they are playing some kind of game on me. They send me changes & then come back & say it is a duplicate. I don't know what they are up to or why, however it slows me down a lot. I have decided not to make their changes until I have time to verify them. I am sure I can make a mistake but I did not just make stuff up. Thanks for your patience.

RE: Sorry..
My interest in Crawford County are because I have a lot of ancestors buried there. I have found and photographed several cemeteries that I have found a lot of information. I do not know who these people are. I even ask to meet with Stevez this spring in his area. He never responded and he took his public message board down. I have no idea as to why he thinks I should believe his new and updated records without questioning any thing.
And as for all of the duplicates he says I make. I had one of my cousins tell me that he had her make changes to her memorials & then move them to another cemetery which then made mine duplicates.
I guess he did not think I would ever find any of that out. I also had one person tell me that there was no one buried in a very old cemetery in Crawford County that did not have a headstone. ??
My old records are all wrong???

Feb 03, 2014 7:11 PM Maiden Name:Yearly/Jeaory CHANGE TO Maiden Name:Yeary

I did not make this change. Note the name change to YEARY. I ask you about it and you said:
" RE: Pinson & Others
Do what you like about removing Jeaory name from Susan's name...but I warn you that some early Yearly records were located with this spelling~ You might want to add it to your files!

RE: Sorry..
They say:" She has been adding many memorials from old records which have lots of mistakes in them, and many of the memorials she has added recently are duplicates of existing ones. ..... She told me once that it wasn't her job to do research, which the rest of us do all the time."
I guess the old records are not correct but the ones they create now are the right ones.
I am SO SORRY to have you in the middle of this.
