I am one of the many members of my family interested in Genealogy. As a little girl I enjoyed writing down all of my family members names and birth dates including cousins. I collected Funeral Cards and obits. I liked knowing everything. I started hardcore research in 2000 while living in Florida even though I was born and raised in Indiana. I am now back in Indiana and can further investigate my lines. My father has been researching prior to me for the last 40 or so years. I enjoy the interesting people I meet and the information that I find. I am a Mother of 3 and Grandmother of 6. Anyone wanting information on the lines that are directly linked to me can contact me through my message board here.I currently have about 27,000 names in my family tree, all connected to the Rock/Shockey, Loveless/Kerfoot, Thompson/Graham and Wilson/Hulett Lines which connect together through my grandparents. I am a descendant of John and Catherine McClellan Rock, Aaron and Nancy Sproul Gordon, Johann Cristoffel Schake [Shockey], John and Rachel Van Hook Loveless, George W Sr and Lucy Stith Kerfoot, William and Martha McClay Tippin and John H and Mary Long Sellers, Harrison and Mary Penrod Sparger, Jonathan B and Rebecca Reynolds Rice on my father's side and James and Eva Thompson Graham and Charles and Bertha Wilson Hulett on my mother's side. Most of the memorials that I have added are related to me somehow, however I have added a few Memorials for local Tippecanoe, Clinton, Boone, Benton and Warren Co, Indiana cemeteries. If you find a memorial that is from your line just ask and as long as I am not connected I will do transfers. To me its not about numbers...its about Family! I believe that everyone should be remembered...whether they have a tombstone or not. I would like to eventually mark my family graves that do not have markers, even if its a small engraved stone...just something that says "Hey I was here. I lived my life and now I am gone. Do not forget me".PS. The picture is me at about 3 months. I was the first born granddaughter to Ina Mae Graham Nydegger and my dress said "Grandmas Little Sweetheart"

Need to prove the connection between Elizabeth Loveless and her parents Joseph Loveless/Dorothy Rogers so that membership to DAR can be accomplished - can you help? Lindalee

Thank you so much for making this memorial!

Under Mary's siblings, you list
Ann Marciline Dawson Batt (1839 - 1917)**
(she is Find A Grave Memorial# 70517966)
and I was wondering where you found the records about Ann Marceline? She is a brick wall for me!
I see on Find-a Grave she is listed as the daughter of Henry Washington Dawson and Eliz Fearnow Dawson, but haven't been able to find any records to confirm.
Kind Regards,

Hallo just a quick question regarding the info/dates for M.E.T. Mcguire, my great grandmother. It shows her as being 113 in 1984 when she died which I think must be wrong. Do you know anymore about this?

RE: Rebecca Beech Abraham Loveless
Thank you for correcting this. Is there any way you would be willing to transfer the management of Rebecca and her husband, Joe, to me? She was my great-grandmother, and I would love to add her picture and her obituary to her FindAGrave entry.

Good Morning,
Just a quick note to let you know I went in and made a change to this memorial. Bill's date of birth is: Feb/10/1923 in Lafayette, IN. He is still alive and is celebrating his 94th birthday soon. The date: May 4, 1895 is my grandfather of the same name.

Thank you for all your hard work putting this together.

RE: (George) Adam Shultz
I'm pretty sure it's 75 years. He was born 28 Feb 1789 and died 27 Jul 1789. That's 75 years and 5 months. Note that both numbers in question look similar--75 can look like 25 if worn down. Also a 5 can look like a 3 if worn.
