I ran across your site by just surfing around, and it is wonderful all the work you have put into this. My great grandmother is buried here, and her stone is the marble one with name of Elsie Snavely written on it. She was also married to a William Coan, (which was in that area in the 1900-1920's,) wondering if your Coan.net any relation? That also interested me tremendously. You have photographed so many of the old cemeteries that I have strolled through, with many of them related to us, Fairchild, Higginsville, Georgetown, etc.......your site is great and I know the amount of work you have put into this......Greatful, in NWIndiana.....Laura

I am part of the family for the Dodson Cemetery. Just was wondering about some of the information about the graves at the cemetery. Trying to figure out how they are all related to me in someway. Thanks.....Sabrina
