Hello there, the last twenty three years I have been working on burial lists and photographing cemeteries in Tippecanoe County Indiana I've enjoyed adding them online to Findagrave. With help from several folks, we're added 138 cemeteries in Tippecanoe County. I've searched for burials and added them through cemetery records I've digitized, from old burial list from our Genealogy & Historical Societies and my own photography while visiting all the cemeteries.
I have recorded the GPS locations on about 130 cemeteries. There are a handful of destroyed locations I could not get. They are all linked by gps on the map links. I usually include an overall photographs of each cemetery on Findagrave and they are linked by camera icons on my page above. My web page also shows my cemetery restoration projects that have been finished in this County. Today, I continue to help educate folks about cemetery restoration methods.
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 can transcribe an obituaries and send it to me through the EDIT button, and send the source with it.
_Please don't add someone else's tombstone to a person.
It is helpful to include a source in your EDITS. Marriage information is much easier to find today online. It is hard to determine sometimes with differences in the burial permits and burial ledgers that were used. Sometimes they reflect spelling 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 Springvale and Greenbush cemetery, 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 family records.
While your out in the cemeteries, take time to look for the hand carved rocks and homemade tombstones as they mark the graves of someone's early ancestors. They may have just been passing through on their way to the West. Please don't move them, but photograph them for record preservation. I've found hand carved and home-made stones too.
I'm grateful to Findagrave for this site and opportunity to share this family history. Our cemeteries are still destroyed everyday. So please take the time to contribute in your area if you can. It helps preserve this information for everyone and future generations who comes searching later.
I am a Genealogist with the Indiana Genealogy Society , the Tippecanoe County Area Genealogical Society (TIPCOA), and retired Librarian volunteer at the Alameda McCollough Research Library located at the Tippecanoe County Historical Association as well as here on Findagrave.
