Jefferson Methodist Protestant Cemetery
I'm trying to find the identities of people buried in the Jefferson Methodist Protestant Cemetery. The headstones, aside from the one you found behind the parking lot, are no longer present and the old church records haven't been located. In your summary of the cemetery you mentioned there were descriptions of other burials - aside from Elizabeth Nelson Wiles. Do you have names of others who were buried there, or do you remember where you located that information? It would be a great help - we are trying to give names to those whose markers have been lost. Thank you!!

Thanks for updating their pages with excellent information. Wish I had that much information on my Abraham and Elizabeth. You've made me more determined to get a more complete biography on their lives. Thanks again!

Henry G Wiles
I found a photo at an antique store labeled "Grandpa Henry G. Wiles". The photo was taken by J. Davis Byerly in Frederick, MD. Henry is a bit older but the features match up to the photo you have posted. Just let me know if you want a scan of it or the original.

You had recently left me a message about
a transfer of William Painter Jewell.
He is my 4x G-Grandfather and I'm also very interested in my Jewell and Painter ancestry. I have also personally researched at Greene County, Indiana courthouse regarding these 2 families.

Hi Eric,

I added the burial location for John Painter Jewell. I seriously think the "wife of John R." on Mary's stone is a typo from the transcription. I don't know if her stone still exists. I have been waiting for a photo volunteer to take a picture for a long time. :-)

Hello there,
I am sorry for the mix up! I still can't believe I uploaded the wrong photo to this individual's memorial page. I deleted it as request.

My sincerest apologies!

Jewell family in Greene County, Indiana
I noticed you have done considerable research on the Jewell family in Greene County, Indiana.
My great-great-grandmother, Rachel Jewell, was born in 1822 in Kentucky and was married in Greene County, Ind. (marriage record shows 1836).
I wondered if you might have any information that would shed light on the parents of Rachel Jewell?
Thank you for your time!

Eliza Ann wife of Jacob Spealman and daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth Houpt marker was added to your memorial from Boonesboro Cemetery. There is a separate memorial for Eliza Ann Spealman in the Boonesboro Cemetery.

Elizabeth Houpt - Boonsboro Cemetery
You have a memorial in Boonsboro Cemetery for Elizabeth Houpt with a birth year but no death year. There is a second memorial for Elizabeth with a year of death but no birth year. I have a photo of a memorial with the following marker transcription:

Elizabeth wife of Jacob Houpt
died July 30, 1874
aged 77 yrs, 7 mos and 11 days

Using the date of death and age, her approx. date of birth would be Dec 19ish 1796. I think these two are the same Elizabeths. If you agree, please delete your memorial since it is the newer of the two. I'll add the photo of the grave marker to your memorial as well

George Ruhl
Good evening,
It has recently been discovered that there are actually TWO cemeteries in Richland County, Ohio, by the name PLEASANT GROVE. One is on Reed Road in Mifflin Township and the other on Coursen Road in Perry Township. The confusion has to do with the picture of the cemetery with the sign “Pleasant Grove Cemetery” which is on both pages even though that is only the sign for the Perry Township one.
I am asking that you please move George Ruhl Find A Grave Memorial# 81215549 [and any other memorials you have in Pleasant Grove, Reed Road, Mifflin Township] to his correct cemetery, Pleasant Grove, Coursen Road, Bangorville, Perry Township. Attached please find [I can email you this file] the list of burials in the Pleasant Grove Reed Road, Mifflin Township from the book “Richland County, Ohio Cemeteries. By: Richland County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society © 1981”. As you can see George Ruhl [and any others you have in the Mifflin Twp. Pleasant Grove] are not listed as buried there because they are in the OTHER Pleasant Grove cemetery. Please let me know when you have moved him and any other memorials out of the Mifflin Twp. Pleasant Grove and into the Perry township Pleasant Grove, Bangorville.
Thank you,
Aaron Turner
Lexington, Richland County, Ohio.

Thomas Knott, died 1921
Are you sure this person is buried at Oakland Cemetery in Durand? No gravestone has been found there. There is another Oakland Cemetery about 20 miles west in Freeport,Illinois in Stephenson County. I am interested in knowing as my ancestors founded the Winnebago County Oakland Cemetery and we have recorded all the known burials as much as is possible in a pioneer cemetery that unfortunately was vandalized in the 70's.

Really odd, the burial index for Greenwood cemetery in Muscatine has the following listing - WEAVER EMANUEL 60 M died March 21, 1901 buried March 24, 1901. An error somewhere I guess.

George Yearian
Hi Eric,
Thanks for writing! George Yearian and Elizabeth Bell were my g-g-grandparents, so Robert Bell was also my ancestor. I hope you will understand without offense that I am reluctant to make the transfer you request. However, I am sure we can ammend the biography so it is satisfactory to both of us. Just send me the text as you would like it to appear, and if I have no objection to any of it - and I will probably have none - I will enter it.
Although I have quite a few papers relating to George's service, I did not know that he received land in Missouri. I would very much appreciate it if you could send me a copy of whatever it is you have that states that.
Thanks again and best wishes.

Hersperger/Wiles family
I noticed your comment on James Wiles site 29766619 that Thomas Wiles and Betsy House were his parents. Do you know much about them? I'm really not sure who he connects to. I descend from Elizabeth Hersperger Wiles brother John Bernard Hersberger and his wife Sarah Ann Wiles. I have often wondered if she and James were siblings? Any information on that? I have a lot of information on the Hersperger family that came from Switzerland to Jefferson.
