Bio and Links
Bio Photo Inspired by the work done by her great grandfather, Silas Wm. Blizzard (fag #40386458), while writing a history of his family, my mother, Eleanor Clara Blizzard Black (fag#36676318) began her own research. She continued until the early 1980's when arthritis and osteoporosis made the work too difficult for her. I had always found the subject interesting but did nothing with it until after inheriting mother's numerous notes. I began my own search to learn more about my ancestors and those of my wife about ten years ago but did so on a limited basis until more recently. Find A Grave has proved to be a wonderful tool! I've "met" so many people here who have been so helpful to me. As I've visited cemeteries and researched names, I've found many of our relatives. I've also created memorials for many other people I've found along the way in the hope that what I've done may be helpful to others who are searching for their ancestors. If I've entered information incorrectly, I apologize; please let me know and I'll make corrections. If you find ancestors of yours among the memorials I've created and would like for me to transfer them to you, let me know. If neither my wife nor I is related, I'll be happy to make the transfer.

Tom, I'm glad my information helped you with your tree. I've found Find A Grave, in general, to be a huge asset in my own tree-building. Kathy

Aaron A Mohler death month incorrect
Tom... I see the month date on the obit for Aaron A Mohler was entered as MARCH. Thus March was used as his death month.
I have 3 different Indiana newspapers for his obit: The Logansport Pharos-Tribune, dated MAY 18, 1965; Kokomo Tribune, dated MAY 19, 1965; Kokomo Morning Times, dated MAY 19, 1965. These obits can be found via For my records, I am using the month of May. Perhaps you would like to verify what I have found. Thanks.... Marysue

Henry Black (Born 1898)
Are you related to him? I'm researching my family and I've hit a roadblock here (great-great grandfather via Eugene Black). I can't seem to find anything else on him, but thank you for the image. Its better than nothing especially since there's more names on the grave I can research.
