    I'll start off by letting you all know that I've frequented this website for months but only recently made an account so that I may interact with you all and contribute what I can to this community.

    My names Taylin. I was raised and lived in French Lick Indiana all my life, and currently live in Paoli. I'm very interested in getting to know people that are in my area. I study history pretty often with a focus on WW1 and our Civil War. My current passion is cleaning veterans headstones, here's just one example: Resized_20171018_113705.jpg Resized_20171018_131012.jpg

    If you have any relatives or persons of interest in my area or the surrounding counties of Orange County Indiana, it would be my pleasure to do this for you. I use D/2, water and soft bristle brushes. I know what I am doing.

    I've also just recently been accepted to the SUVCW and assigned to John B. Anderson Camp #223 in Columbus. My 3x Great Grandfather is Patrick DeWitt of the 23rd Indiana.

    My dad's folks are from Southern Indiana, Clark and Scott County, Indiana, to be precise. Actually, the man you see in my profile picture is Capt. Mathew Clegg, my 5x great grandfather, and so happens to be the great grandpa of Col. Harland Sanders. He was capt. of Co. M, 5th Indiana Cavalry, and was captured at Macon Georgia, along with General George Stoneman, as they were protecting the retreat of the rest of their forces. Mathew was a farmer raised and lived in Clark county.
