[Note: Charles and Lydia are Michael's great-grandparents. "The name of the cemetery where they are buried is the Washington Township Cemetery, located in Washington Township, Whitley County, Indiana. There is another cemetery attached to the west. You pull into the driveway and on the left is the Washington Township Cemetery and on the right side of the driveway is the Early Baptist Cemetery. At one time there was a small church at the back of the drive. Last year you could still see the foundation to the church. I was there a month ago and could not see the foundation."]
