Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Hi Linda,

I was wondering whether you could link Phyllis Maxine Davis 126634384 with her parents (who were my grandparents)? They are Lawrence Davis 178722411 and Carrie Davis 178722437.

Thank you for your consideration!

i have an antique quilt from the Poe, Crandall, Trowbridge, Moore, and Briscoe families
Hi Linda,
Believe it or not, I have a quilt that was made of 30 squares, each of which had a hand-embroidered full name of the 30 people who made the quilt.
I was curious as to the age of the quilt and location and with some digging realized the group of quilt-makers was from Indiana.
Names include Juanita Poe, Bertha Poe, Nolan Poe, Paulie Poe, Russell Poe, Olive Trowbridge, Arlie Trowbridge, H.D. Trowbridge, Crandall (Thelma, Ruth E. Howward, Louise and Letrice), Pendleton (Ellen, Phyllis, Emmett), Moore (Frank, Howard, Florence, and Curtis), Briscoe (Jimmie, Kathleen), and a few others.
I thought it would be of interest to you!
Feel free to contact me: (don't forget middle initial K or I won't receive your email).

Charles Hancock Dike
Hi Linda,
Charles and Addie Dike were my 2x great grandparents. Thank you so much for posting their information! I even have the picture of Addie that you posted - but I didn't know who it was, so that helped tremendously. I would love to chat with you about them and the family connections if you get a moment.

Thank you!

Hello, Linda, I would like to request transfer of these memorials for William J. "Bill" Wilkey and Betty L. Spears Wilkey to me. I am their daughter. I just recently started in genealogy and am working on my family tree and discovered the Find A Grave web site. I would appreciate it if you will consider my request. Thank you.

Linda, thank you for posting the information for my father, William Wilkey. Could you please make a correction, though. William J Wilkey is not a sibling, so could you please remove that.
