Sharon, you were the original contributor for James Blakely ((Blakely Cemetery)Yankee Cemetery, Vinton Co., Ohio). You assigned it to my husband, Ron Zirkle. It has come to our attention that there is another memorial for James Blakely with additional information.

We would like to delete the James Blakely you originally contributed so there would not be any confusion. We are unable to because we are not the original contributor. Would you please go in and delete it. Thank you. Mary Zirkle

RE: Marie Fern Ogan Jones
OPPs! the Merle Jones you give birth date to was a woman, Merle (McCain) Jones. She was second wife to Hugh A Jones. buried at Pine Log Cemetery (on Find-a-Grave).
SO, the birth date you have for Merle Jones may be incorrect.
Can you give me some sources for the birth date you have and the marriage date you have?
I did find another Merle Jones, born in Iowa, married to "Henrietta" who was born in Columbus, OH. They were on a cruise together returning from Cuba landing at Key West, Florida May 5, 1922. At that time they listed they were living in Denver, Colorado.

Thanks in advance,

RE: Isabelle Shewalter Leach
Samuel V. Speakman was father to my grandfather Fred Speakman. The father of Samuel V. Speakman is Joshua Speakman who lived and built his home in Pike County.I now know that Isabelle is mother to ny grandmother Priscilla (Leach) Speakman, and she is buried in the same cemetery as my grandmother. I thought I would let you know, I even found a picture. There is no doubt that since you hunt people in Vinton County, you have seen a lot of Josh's family, because he had a lot of children.

Elk Fork Cemetery
Have been to McArthur a few times and always visited Elk and Old McArthur cemeteries where a lot of relatives are buried. Just noticed there is an Elk Fork Cemetery - have a gg grandmother that died in 1850 and now think she may be there. Is this cemetery accessible - from satellite pictures it looks like it is on private property. Is there a list of all interments, perhaps at the library? Her name was Amelia Seeley Filkins Sylvester Shephard (or Shepard).

Dr. Leonard Holland - Old McArthur Cemetery
I have a question I'm hoping you can help me with. Martha Arrelia Holland married Rev. Sanford B. Mathews & Dr. Arthur Titus. She is buried in Elk Cemetery with her first husband. Her death record & obituary list her father, Dr. Leonard Holland. I'm sure this memorial is her father's. Her mother is listed on her death certificate as "Mary Simpson". I see Leonard's memorial is linked to spouse Mary Sudlow. Was Sudlow Leonard's only wife? I want to make sure before I link her to the memorial. Any information would be helpful. I am researching Martha's husband's family & I just wanted to confirm. I try to have as accurate information as possible. Thank you! Abigail Deeter
