Use of photos

I wondered if you had any objections to my using some of your photo's to illustrate my family tree?
Thank you for taking the time and effort to let those of us in other parts of the world see the final resting places of our distant relatives.

Thank you for creating the memorial for the youngest son of my great great grandparents. The family came over from England in 1849 on board the LZ from Liverpool. Would you consider transferring his memorial to me? My number is 47986407. Thanks

Sgt James B Mitchell
I came across your memorial for Sgt James B Mitchell (Find A Grave Memorial# 22097497). You stated that he was a member of Co A, 4th OVC. However, we can find no record of him in the Official Roster, Soldiers and Sailors System, or Ohio Genealogical Society Civil War roster. I did find a First Sgt/Captain, Co's D, A, & H, James B Mitchell in the 96th OVI. Do you have anything that shows he was in the 4th OVC? The pic of the stone is next to impossible to read.

‘Corp. Gotthold Markert’
Dear Mr. Guy,

Wow, you have done a great job in Hoffner Cemetery in Mt. Healthy!

Regarding your ‘Corp. Gotthold Markert’ (c. 1823 Saxony--17 Feb 1889, Mt. Healthy, Hamilton Co., OH) your #17815975, have you ever seen any record of his wife there?

Gotthold married “Dorothea Loreta Markert” (nee unknown) in Saxony prior to their coming to Mt. Healthy. The 1860 census shows both of them living there with their children.

“Dorothea Loreta” or “Loreta” is definitely listed in the 1880 Census of Mt. Healthy, but it is presumed she passed away prior to his death on 17 Feb 1889.

I note, two of Gotthold’s children are buried in the same cemetery, and was just hoping there was some record of his wife.

Very Respectfully,
Jim Forcum
Beavercreek, OH

K Guy: Thank you for your contributions to Benjamin J. Decker was born in Wayne Co., New York, where his parents lived, according to three censuses. He prob. never was in Germany. However, if you can provide proof, I'd be ever so grateful. If not, I'm requesting that you change the birth section. Thanks again.

William Owsley vs. John Boyle
I have mentioned this before but the portrait of Governor William Owsley of Kentucky is the one you have up as Judge John Boyle. To my knowledge there is no portrait of Judge Boyle unless it is in very private hands. The website has the same portrait there for Owsley. I see that you got it from the Gene Snyder Courthouse in Louisville. They may have it mislabeled there and need to know. I will try to reach someone there who can let us know about it. There is also a hall of Governors in the Kentucky Historical Society Building in Frankfort that has portraits of all the governors there.

Sorry, hit the wrong button.

The memorial for Catherine Ann Seymour Clark (1795-1873) will not come up. Can you shed some light on this?

Bug Holliday
Dear Mr. Guy:

I attempted to E-mail you today, but got a bounceback.

I would like to quote part of your *Fiind A Grave* biographical sketch on James Wear "Bug" Holliday. I plan to quote it in a footnote in a biography I'm working on, of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy. Hoy and Holliday were
teammates, and Holliday made some public comments and infuriated Hoy (implying that Hoy was a cheapskate).

As best I understand, "Bug" was a nickname given to players with nervous, excitable, kooky personalities.

I was much impressed by the Flickr gallery of your drawings and paintings.

I have not yet been to Cincinnati, but as part of the "prep stage" for the book, I've been exploring its history and growth online. Hoy loved Cincinnati and made it his permanent home.

Nathan Guilford
Nathan Guilford (1786-1854) buried in section 36 lot 38 is the son of Dr. Jonas Guilford (1759-1809) #22954242 and Lydia Hobbs (1760-1849)#22954252. He and his wife Eliza Wheeler Farnsworth had six children, one of whom is Apolline Guilford (1825-1876) #79055265 who married Pierre Clement Tetedous (1820-1870). I have noted that there are two Nathan/Nathaniel Guilfords with same dates and buried in same spot in the memorials, one is #788944062 but is the same person. Would you be so kind as to correct these records.

You have placed a photo on Rebecca's memorial page, but it was taken from a distance and appears to have lots engraved upon it. I would love to see a close up of the stone so I could read the engraving. Is this request a possibility? It's in the Ephraim Tanner Cem, Florence, KY. Mary Giera in Jacksonville FL

I believe the portrait that you have identified as Judge John Boyle is actually a portrait of Kentucky Governor William Owsley.

Orphan Brigade
Hi my name is Patty I was wondering if you could help me locate a member of my moms Bradley family from Fleming Co Ky. His name was William O. Bradley and he was a member of the Orphan Brigade. All i know about him was that he was from Daviess Ky and was discharged 1-25-1863. I have been trying to find any information on him but so far no luck. Thank you for any information you might have on him or where he is buried at. Thank you Patty#47517041

George W. Howarth - Spring Grove Cemetery
Am curious to know if you happen to have the published volumes called Roll of Honor published by the GPC. I'm looking for the entry that appears in Volume XVIII pg. 309. I have volume XXVI-XVII that covers this George W. Howarth's death and burial record but my husband has not been able to obtain 2 volumes to the collection, which happens to be the volume above. Darn. I would like to know what vol. 18:309 has to say about George W. Howarth and what cemetery it is referencing. Can you help?

Anyway, for the entry in XXVI-XXVII that I have it says that George W. Howarth was a private in Co. H, 22nd Michigan Infantry who died July 24th, 1865 and is buried in Lot C, grave 36 in Spring Grove.

If this man is the one I am looking for, he was born Nov. 29, 1843 in Orion, Oakland, Michigan and is the son of John Howarth born in Hatfield Parish, Yorkshire England who died in Orion, Oakland, Michigan and Loretta Margaret Clark born in Damascus, Wayne, Pennsylvania and died in Orion, Oakland, Michigan. Both of these individuals are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Oakland co, MI and George is listed on their tombstone as one of their children. There is a memorial on Find A Grave for George William Howarth in that Cemetery, which might mean it is just a memorial rather than actual burial.

Is there anyway you can contact Spring Grove to determine whether or not George's remains were removed, and if so, is there a record that they were transported to the Evergreen Cemetery?

Lt. Don Wilt
Memorial# 21752299
Greetings K. Guy,

I am in the process of researching my 3rd Great-grandfather, James Tracey born about 1800 in Pennsylvania, died unknown date or location. This James would have been age 61+ at the beginning of the Civil War. I do not think he would have been allowed to enlist let alone be listed in the 1863 draft.

Reviewing family trees on, I see that almost all of the trees list James as having passed away 24 Jun 1862 at Camp Dennison, Hamilton County, Ohio and transferred to the Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Hamilton CO, OH.

This is a most interesting Civil War Soldier????

I have found the Headstone order card on

He is also found in the U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960

However, what is strange, I can find no service record for this soldier. He is not listed on the American Civil War Research Database under either spelling Tracy or Tracey. He is not listed in the Company I (Eye) 52 OVI I do not find him on or the NPA Soldiers and Sailors System.

Do you have any clues as to what the age of this soldier was when he died?

Thanks for your help with this family research.
