RE: Samuel Patterson
On my father's mother's side, I descend from:

Lorinda Patterson

BIRTH 6 JAN 1820 Grant, Indiana, United States (alt. Hamilton, Ohio, United States)
DEATH 17 JUL 1849 Gas City (Mill) , Grant, Indiana, United States

Lorinda was the first wife of Eli Hiatt and d I believe she had a sister Louisa, that married an Elam Hiatt and a brother Samuel (1823-1869), who was married to a Lucinda Draper and some 1/2 siblings! May have been the children of Andrew Patterson and either Bridgett Nelson or Mary Parks.

I have a tree on ancestry with some records but some missing info too!

Sorry I was so delayed in responding . . . I was on vacation when your message came and then took another short trip and am now just catching up!

Thank You
I'm very grateful to visit grave of loved one that you created online. I'm from Valpo, but live in Louisiana. Of course I have wonderful memories, but now I can leave flowers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. M J S

Ray & Margaret Heck headstone
You posted a nice double headstone photo at the memorial of Ray Heck (#75713119). His widow recently passed away, so I'd like to invite you to post the same headstone photo at her memorial too, please. Thank you for considering this request.

RE: Grandfathers brother
That's great, and his name is Ralph Elwin Waterhouse and he was born on 7/28/1906 in Connecticut and he died on 6/12/1956 and his wife's name is Edith.

Do you lookup obituaries? Because my great grandfather's brother died in Porter County, Indiana and I don't know where he's buried at.

Shirley Garmon / Graceland Cemetery Valparaiso
why do you have Shirley Garmon Listed as deceased on Find A Grave at Graceland Cemetery? She is infact quite alive. This seems insulting to a person.
