Hello, The last twenty years I have been working on burial lists and photographing cemeteries in TippecanoeCounty Indiana I've enjoyed adding them online to Findagrave. With help from several folks, we're almost done with the 138 cemeteries in Tippecanoe County.

My webpage below, shows my cemetery restoration projects I've restored in this County. I continue to help educate folks about cemetery restoration methods.

I have recorded the GPS locations on about 130 cemeteries. There are a handful of destroyed locations I could not get. You will find my overall photographs of each cemetery on about 90% of Tippecanoe County sites here on Findagrave.

I am happy to add updates to my entries, PLEASE use the EDIT buttons. I will be happy to update and add your family links. You may add your own photographs to a person.
_You may transcribe an obituaries and send it to me through the EDIT button, and send the source with it.
_Please don't add someone elses tombstone to a person.
_Please don't add death certificates to the memorials.

Sadly many folks are making a mess of these burial listings. If you find someone linked incorrectly, send your correction and include a source. Marriage information is much easier to find today online. Findagrave has changed a lot over the years.

More is available in the Research Library. I invite you to come in and explore us.

I have seen many differences in the burial permits and sometimes burial records that were used, also in the old readings too. Sometimes they reflect differently between the tombstones, obituary or other records. Please help me make this information better by adding your gravestone photographs. Or send me details of the proof you have found.
Thank you all for your continued help with your photographs and send updates to them.

I am working and fine-tuning entries in Greenbush, in Lafayette. Some of the records are missing their from the Old Lafayette City burials (1852 to 1870), but occasionally new burials are found from old newspapers or other records we are sorting in the Alameda McCollough Research Library.
While your out in the cemeteries, take time to look for the handcarved rocks and homemade tombstones as they mark the graves of someones early ancestors. They may have just been passing through on thier way to the West. Please don't move them, but photograph them for record preservation. I've found handcarved and home-made stones too.

I'm grateful to Findgrave for this site and opportunity to share the history. Our cemeteries are still distroyed everyday. So please take the time to contribute in your area if you can. It helps preserve family history for everyone and future generations who comes searching later.

I am a Genealogist with the Tippecanoe County Area Genealogical Society (TIPCOA), Indiana Genealogy Society and volunteer at the Alameda McCollough Research Library located at the Tippecanoe County Historical Association.
