Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Tippecanoe County, near the Pretty Prairie and Hog Point area. I'm probably related by blood or marriage to most in this cemetery. My Sterrett and Beeker family lived all around it.

I moved to Louisiana in 1993 and then the Mississippi Gulf Coast area in 1999.
I moved back to Tippecanoe County in 2004.
I have been working on our Family History since 1988.
I am currently working on a family website and now living back on the Gulf Coast.

RE: Mary Russell Starrett
Do you have anything that tells who Mary's parents are? I am bet they are Henry Russell & Chloe Smallwood. The family were in Wayne County at that time. Zadock was married in 1826 who I descend from. I joined the SAR by Henry being in the War.

Mary Russell Starrett
I think Mary was a daughter of Henry Russell b.1755 & Chloe Smallwood.
1850 Tippecanoe census Lists Mary being born in NC. Mary and Samuel were married 1825 in Wayne County. Prior Russell was married 1822 in Wayne County Zadock Russell was married 1826 in Wayne County. These 3 families want to Tippecanoe County. Samuel & Mary show up there in 1830. Will have to check on Prior & Zadock.
Mary fits in as being the second child of Henry Russell.
What connection do you have with Mary if any? I know Mary was the second of Samuel.
I joined the SAR by Henry.

Thanks a million for your contribution to the genealogical community, helping to photograph and get headstone photos on the web.

Could you please correct the information for Margarett Geyer, wife of Michael Geyer in the Pretty Prairie Cemetery.

The headstone reads
died 22 Feb 1890 - 77 years 7 months 8 days

Pretty Prairie Cemetery
Hi Cheryl,
Do you know if there are records of early burials at the Pretty Prairie Cemetery? Or early transcriptions of headstones? I have several family members buried there but their headstones are difficult to read. It also appears that these families have plots so I wonder if other family members are buried there. Thanks

I am researching my family tree and I believe this person married into the Swiger family, and had a daughter, Elizabeth Caroline Swiger. Are you related to Martha?? Would you have further information on her ?? I'd like to compare/share info on this line. Feel free to email me directly if you prefer.

Milton Gay question
He is buried in the Pretty Prairie cemetery. His death date on his memorial is not right, probably a typo. Do you have his actual death date? He was still alive in the 1880 Census as a 50 yr. old.
