|Bio and Links|
I was born in 1947 in humorist Will Cuppy's hometown, Auburn, Indiana. Not knowing that Cuppy was from Auburn, I bought a paperback copy of his "The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody" in 1966 at the campus bookstore at Indiana University, Bloomington. I thought it was terrific and mentioned it to a librarian in Auburn who told me that Cuppy was a local product. I started researching Cuppy's life in 1977, and later, his family history. His humor is a national treasure.|

I enjoy reading old newspapers at the Library of Congress website, and I stumbled upon a little article in the Bridgeport Evening Farmer of 11/3/1916 commemorating the 100th birthday of Mr. Fairbank. It contains some interesting information. I am sure you already have it, but thought I'd send along this link, just in case.
Read your obituary of Gordon Miller Buehrig and was wondering if you were a close friend of Gordon. I have been researching the Buehrig family for over 40 years and I am hoping you may be able to add some information.
thanks _ Mark Buehrig

Hi there Mr. Walter,
I am very interested in Pop Buell and learning more about this incredible Indiana man. I see that you provided a John Steinbeck quote and would like to know your source. Did the two of them ever meet? And If so, do you have any photos of these great men together?

I was wondering if you may have a current phone number for the Roselawn Cemetery in De Kalb County. The 260-433-5550 is not a working number thank you
|bridgett siter||Farley family|
I inherited a very large stack of great photos and letters from my grandmother who found them inside a suitcase she purchased at an estate sale in Florida. The suitcase contains photos, letters, books, certificates and more. (Even a lock of hair from a young woman who died of consumption in 1889.) Among the many family names was Farley. In fact, more than any other family, I found photos, school books, graduation announcements and more related to Frank Farley, who apparently attended a military academy in 1917 and Purdue University. My search for descendants led me to Find A Grave, and I see that you entered photos of their graves. I would love to find descendants who would treasure these treasures. Do you have any leads, anywhere you can point me to find relatives of the Farleys? (There were a lot of Wheelers in the box, also.)

Thanks for the photos and interesting bios included in the captions for Wm & Theodosia.
As a Bloomingtonian, I have special affection for Ross Lockridge Jr. and sometimes visit his real grave. In reading Lockridge materials here, I found your info and discovered that you are a fan of my great unsung hero Will Cuppy. I've had my grandparents' copy of "Decline and Fall" for decades, and I still read it whenever I'm especially down. It never fails to cheer me. Cuppy was one of a kind.

|Rommy Lopat||Bard memorial|
I put the photos on your Bard memorial and deleted the other memorial. You should suggest to the cemetery that they clean that memorial (and he needs a flag). Interesting man!
|D. Montgomery||Mount Royal Cemetery photo|
Hello I am writing to request permission for use of the Mount Royal Cemetery entrance photo you have posted at this Montreal cemetery site. I have a relative Mary Margarite Crimmins (Find A Grave# 108910827) and her family buried there. I live far from Montreal and would appreciate use of your great photo as the cemetery photo for these memorials.
I would appreciate your help with this.

I am the author of a website dedicated to the 16th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Civil War regiment at www.mkwe.com/home.htm. I am requesting your permission to use your photo of this gravesite on my website in honor of this 16th OVI soldier. Please let me know.
Thanks for the work you do in researching and publishing our ancestors' gravesites! It is greatly appreciated!
