RE: Hopewell Cemetery
Well. I am more than a little embarrassed! The Hopewell Church and cemetery land was given by her father, and she did attend church there from her birth until they moved into the town of Wabash in 1874 or 75. Some of my ancestors also attended that church during those years so knew her at the time. Not sure where I got the idea in my head that she was also buried there. Perhaps I was aware of the moving of her body from CA to IN, and I made a very bad assumption that she had been brought back to her childhood home for burial. Very sorry, and thank you very much for setting me straight on this. Roger Morphew

Hopewell Cemetery
Hi -- I like your description of the Hopewell Cemetery that is in Wabash County, IN. I have many relatives buried there. Besides the Medal of Honor recipient (Henry Finkenbiner), it is also the final resting place of famous author Gene Stratton Porter. The land for the church and cemetery was donated by her father, Mark Stratton.

While researching my Ulrey family I found the comment on this site that Stephen and his brother David Ulrey died on the same day and likely met a tragic death. In fact, they did not. Purely coincidental, David died of dropsy and Stephen of lung fever. Perhaps it is time to remove the speculative statement. Thank you for all you do!
