Nancy Lindley, wife of Zenas Linley
I have researched the Lindley family for over two years as they are family members. Since I live in Cincinnati, their community is not far from here and I am very familiar with its surroundings and resources.

Thank you for all of the work that you have done to honor our ancestors. However, I need to call attention to the fact that the information for Nancy Lindley on Findagrave is not sourced; i.e. the Nancy whose biography is there is probably not the Nancy who was married to Zenas and lived 1762-1840 and was born in Washington County, PA. Zenas and Nancy came to Ohio from that area in 1808. Often, researchers confuse the two women. There is no verification that Nancy (1755) married Zenas Lindley. Most researchers are leaving the parentage of Zenas' wife, Nancy, as an unknown as there is no verification. In the listing of residents of Washington County, PA, there is a David McFarian/Farlain who lived in the community at the time that Nancy (Zenas' wife)is documented to have lived there. There is not Daniel McFarland listed in the community. Some researchers think that David is the father of Nancy Lindley. Documentation is important. Otherwise, the information is fiction. If you will look in Proceedings of the Worcester Society of Antiquity, Volume 21 by the Worcester Historical Society, Worcester, Mass. it states that Daniel McFarland's daughter, Nancy, was born in 1755. If you will look at the Lineage Book (Daughters of Colonial Wars), you will see that it lists Zenas' (veteran) wife, Nancy ______ who died in 1840 in Piqua, Ohio. Piqua is (Spring Creek Township) in Miami County, Ohio. The DCW lists their reference as New Jersey Colonial Documents.

Thank you for your attention.

RE: Photo Request for Johann Oswald in Terpening Cemetery
Cynthia,

You are very welcome. I have Gertrude. The obelisk she is on is lying
on the ground. I don't think I may have missed him on the back of the
stone but I don't think so. I uploaded her stone photo to her memorial.
It reads beautifully. I have Jacob and a second stone for George the
son of someone and Helen (1860-1870) and well-lit photos of the large
monument that is not well-lit in the memorials' photos. I will email them
to you

Best Regards,
Paul

Old Trinity Cemetery in IL
Hello. I discovered Find-A-Grave through an article on environmentalgraffiti.com, "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery." By looking up Lavinia Rice, I found Old Trinity Cemetery. The article contains photographs of gravestones that aren't pictured here. I was particularly touched by the single headstone for Electa, Albert, and Martha Gould, all dead in 1852. In spring all were alive; by autumn all were gone. What took them? Who survived to remember them with that gravestone? Anyway, I wanted you to know so you might see the stones for yourself. Thank you for maintaining the virtual Old Trinity Cemetery. I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about something I thought was lost.

William Hardin Brown
You added William Hardin Brown to the Cloyd Cemetery. My husband descends from him. We visited this cemetery and did not find his grave. Is it unmarked or did we just overlook him?

Lon Harder
Cynthia,
I see you used my pictures of Lon on the find a grave website. Thank you for that. I had not got around to posting them. Are you related to Lon? I remember going to visit him with my dad when I was small. His son Clifford was quite a character. I always got a kick out of him.
Thank again,
Steve Bishop
