Bio Photo FOR: additions and corrections PLEASE use the newer edits function.

Interested in genealogy and family history. Member of Noble County Indiana Genealogical Society. I have been researching my mother's family primarily for the last seven years. I was born a "Buckeye" but I have been a "Hoosier" since 1965 until 2014. A lot of the listings are my relations except for Old Lutheran Cemetery in Fort Wayne. I formerly resided in Allen County, Indiana and I was blessed to have their excellent family history library close by when I started my research. Now I am an resident of the beautiful Lake Martin Alabama area. Enjoy find a grave to preserve those who have passed and have gained many clues that benefited my own research. Many thanks to all contributors for all your work.

If any of my listings are non-close relations, transfers are available to the decedent's family members.

Thank You for stopping by,

Need your input!

RE: Mary Crowfoot Hillier Mathews

I have The American Genealogist (TAG), vol. 16, p. 150, that you want but I don't know how to attach it to this email via method of communicating. Please instruct me how to do it or if you feel comfortable doing so, please provide me with your email address and I will email it to you that way.

Kind regards,

I see that you posted a picture for this memorial. Would it please be possible to retake the picture of this marker? It is very fuzzy and you cannot make out the name(s) on it clearly. and there is a pending name correction that is riding on this. I realize that this will take time as it is FREEZING out right now, but when you next get a chance that would be very helpful! Thank you!

Hi JR.

I want to thank you for the memorial you posted on this man who may be an ancestor of mine:

Created by: J R N
Record added: May 13, 2010
Find A Grave Memorial# 52336323

My fourth great grandfather was Nehemiah Crowfoot
BIRTH 1750 possibly Salem, Westchester County, New York, USA
DEATH ABT 1806 Broome County, New York, USA
4th great-grandfather

He might not have been born in Westchester County, NY, though there was at least one family there by that name before the revolution.

I have not been able to determine any of his ancestors with any great certainty. There is a lot of confusion about the spelling of CROWFOOT/CRAWFORD/CROFOOT/CROFUT etc etc. Can you help? Where can I find your family tree?

Thank you so much for your work! I have some old love letters from the early 1900s written to my great grandmother. I've been tracking her suitor down and was delighted to find you photographed his father's gravesite. Thank you for helping bring the suitor's story to life for me.
