Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started asking my family questions about our heritage about 40 years ago and haven't stopped since! Finding out about the lives and loves of our ancestors transforms them into real people, not just characters - tho some of them were real characters!
I enjoy the people I meet while searching for clues to family history mysteries. Anyone with questions about my family links or needing research in the Miami-Cass-Carroll County Indiana area is welcome to contact me for information.

Hi Shirley,

I was going to ask you to kill the links on this memorial to the parents. Because as it reads right now, the infant died 11 years before either parent was born! However, it is just a transcription error and the year of death should be 1883.

I will submit a change for this.

Thanks for posting the photos of my great grandfather's siblings. I visited the cemetery many years ago, before Find A Grave. I have created a memorial for William Charles Betzner's wife. She remarried in 1878 to Christian Willing and is buried in the same cemetery with her parents, and her son, Adam Betzner. I sent the memorial number so you can link her to the two children that died in Indiana.


Adam & Helma's great granddaughter

Greetings, I was hoping you may allow me to use the photo of his headstone on my family tree on, providing you full credit as the photo taker. If so, I'd greatly appreciate it; if not, I'll respect your wishes. Kindest regards,Tom Knapp
