Daniel Long
Hi Laurie
I am hoping that you can help me sort out my confusion over a couple of Daniel Longs.
I have found 2 death certificates.
The first is for a Daniel Long that was born on November 2, 1851 and died Sept 13, 1914 in Seville. His place of burial is noted as Sept 16th in the Guilford Cemetery. His parents were Joseph and Lavina Spice Long.

The second is for a Daniel Long that was born on July 30,1857 in Guilford and died Sept 12, 1937 in Lodi. His place of burial in noted to be Woodlawn. His parents were Phillip and Catherine Rohr(sp)Long.

The only one that I can find in Medina is in the Blake Cemetery b. Jul. 30, 1857 d. Sep. 11, 1914. This seems to be a blend of the 2.

I am not familiar with the cemeteries there. Can you help me sort this out? I think that the one that I am looking for is the first one. His first wife was Jennie Hatfield Long.

Joseph K. Overholt
Although Joseph K. Overholt lived for many years in Medina County, Ohio, he actually died in Athens, Calhoun, Michigan, at the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Moses Histand.


Herald of Truth Obituaries-March 1887, Herald of Truth, Vol. XXIV, Number 6, March 15, 1887-Page 94,95 Overholt-Joseph K. says he died in Athens, Michigan at the home of Moses Histand.

1870 and 1880 United States Federal Censuses show Moses and Mary Histand living in Athens, Calhoun, Michigan.

Michigan, Deaths and Burials Index, 1867-1995 for Mary Histand gives her father as Joseph K. Overholt.

Michigan, Deaths and Burials Index, 1867-1995 for Joseph K. Overholt gives death place as Athens, Calhoun, Michigan,

Esther Wheeler # 50974031
Greetings, Laurie!

Using the EDIT feature to provide Esther's maiden name, gravestone inscription, and the dates & places of her birth & death, I inadvertently gave the year of her marriage as her birth year, and cannot correct the suggested edit. She was born c.1646, not c.1665. My apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks for your consideration. (The source of my info is the Orange Historical Society.)

Best regards,

Alfred Simsa site
I have a question. When I do an edit, then realize I left out info, how do I delete the first one to keep from catching .... on the site for Alfred Simsa I put in his wife's name. Then realized I had his parents names as well so I did a second one. Can you tell me how to handle a situation like this and can you "fix" the info for Alfred please. He was married to my Dad's first cousin. Hilda

Frances Barton Schellin
Ran across something interesting while working on Sec. 26a at Glendale and doing a bit of research on Henry Schellin. On 14 Sept. 1915, Frances Ball, d/o Isaac N. and Alice Hottinger Barton, married Birten Ball, of McClure, Henry Co., Ohio, son of John and Ruth Hunter Ball. Frances was listed as having one previous marriage, and was divorced. So it looks like she divorced the first Mr. Ball, and married possibly his cousin. I could not locate her marriage to Schellin, which would have shed light on what happened to the second Mr. Ball. Henry Schellin, interestingly enough, is buried beside her, although I believe his grave is unmarked. He too had three marriages, and I suspect his second ended in divorce, as I could not locate the second wife dying.

I have added Henry and linked him to Frances.

Kevin Marken
Harry George Halliwell

My Grandpa was a Custodian at Westfield Insurance, he had worked there as his last job after the Boxboard sometime but up until 1975, a year before he passed away.

I am guessing we are cousins, my Mom, Joann Halliwell - Marken was Grandpa's daughter.

I want to tell you how it is a privilege and an honor to be your cousin too, the work you went through to compile the history of the family is remarkable, thank you.

Joshua Franklin Shank
I was wondering if you know who posted the information on web grave for Joshua Shank. I would like to confirm the names of his parents listed. I do know Catherine Hoff (correct spelling) was his mother. I want to conform Samuel since we can't find a marriage certificate for them. Thank you

Richard Halliwill
Geo & Kezia Halliwill Bible
I'm new to this. Found an old family bible when I was clearing out my Moms old house in California this past March. Dad was Richard J Halliwill son of Richmond P Halliwill of Akron, Ohio. When Grandpa died Dad got this old bible. It was bought by George and Kezia Halliwill in Elyria, OH on 29 Nov 1881. Then presented to Melissa Ann on Christmas 1881. Much of the same information you presented in your 2009 document is also written in this bible. Question is that the bible needs to be preserved and saved for other researchers. Do you have any suggestions? I'm still reviewing the old photos and Halliwill records that were past down to me. A letter from London responding to an inquiry. Again I'd like to see them in a safe place in Ohio for others to review.
