Bio

I'm very familiar with Hendricks and Morgan counties of Indiana and the Quakers who settled there. When taking pictures I won't disturb a stone as they are so brittle and "granular" now as compared to when I started taking pictures of them 30+ years ago. To use brushes, chalk, soaps and chemicals would likely wipe out any text that had been carved in (especially the very old ones). Please be careful with these old stones - once damage has been done from cleaning, it's likely irrepairable. Please check findagrave discussion forums or your local department of natural resources for alternatives to bring out the text on these stones safely. Please be careful so the next person after you will be read this precious genealogical resource! Thank you.

Please note that I have a lot going on right now and it may take a bit to get back with you, and I would be happy to update memorials with sourced documentation. Thank you in advance for your patience. I am not releasing memorials I manage f
or the Sugar Grove Friends Burying Ground as I am in process of editing all burials Thank you for your understanding.

PLEASE DO NOT use any of my photos prior to asking and receiving written permission. Should you wish to use my photos - please post a message below with the memorial name and number along with a description/source of what my photos will be used for, the description(s) of photos you wish to have permission to use along with your name, contributor ID number and an email address where you can be contacted back at. I will not consider any request that has less than the information as outlined above.

I would appreciate virtual flowers and notes left on my Revolutionary War ancestor's memorials - William Hoyt (memorial # 68922225) who was killed in battle at Fort Ticonderoga, and his son Benjamin (memorial # 120139805) who was in the same troop and witnessed his father being shot and killed.

Thank you.
