Bonnie (#46917571)
 member for 7 years, 4 months, 5 days
Civil War soldier
Hi Bonnie,

Regarding Pvt James D. Young, mem #79317440, in Old Burying Ground, Highland Co, Ohio, I'm dubious about the dates shown. If he died Jun 10, 1882 ay age 24, his birth year would have been 1858. Now we know the Civil War broke out in 1861, so he would have been a 3-year old boy then.

The regimental roster for the 81st Ohio Infantry does not show a Pvt Young in Company G but does show a Chaplain James Young in Field & Staff, who enlisted 11 Feb 1863 at the age of 38. Thus he would have been born about 1825.

Can you please clarify?

I do appreciate your input - whatever we (volunteers) can do to put that family member one step closer, yes?

Great - thank you for the information on his 2nd wife. Do you know where she is buried so that we could link them?

Hugh Dillon

Thanks so much for responding.

What is the death date on his certificate? If it is 1904, this is Hugh Dillon b1853, son of Harvey Dillon son of Hugh Dillon b1813. My query is about Hugh Dillon b1848 son of Hugh Dillon b1813.
These two are commonly mixed by researchers, many of whom assume they are one and the same.

The two Hugh Dillons are uncle and nephew.

Hugh Dillon b1848 resided in Allen Co., Indiana beyond the 1880 census. There was also a Hugh Dillon in Allen Co., Indiana as late as 1883, employed as a fireman. I assume the same, but no information after that date, thus, my query. The death certificate for Charles Albert Dillon says he was born (1882) in Allen Co., Indiana to Hugh and Margaret dishong Dillon. Charles is the correct family.


Based on his obit, I mistakenly buried Hugh Dillon b1853 in Baileys Mills, Belmont Co., Ohio as the only info on this family was with regard to Belmont and Monroe Cos., Ohio. I also telephoned the Courthouse in St Clairsville, Belmont Co., looking for info on this Hugh Dillon.

I am assuming you have viewed or have a copy of Hugh Dillon b1853 death certificate, which should be on file with the Guernsey Co., Ohio courthouse.

Thanks with your information. You have helped to clarify these Hughs just a bit more.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Very best regards,

Henry S. Dillon

Hi Bonnie,
I requested Find-a-Grave to delete Mame - I agree they are the same person. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: Adanraim Yonley #66519379
I have no idea how to spell his name :) I was on a genealogy trip to West Virginia and crossed the river to go to this cemetery to photograph the gravestones of a couple of cousins. Decided to photograph several other stones too, while I was there. Glad I could be of help.

Thank you, Grandma Kate would always cry when speaking about her brother Bobbie's tragic death. Family operated a sawmill, would fell the trees themselves, growing up Grandma would never let us go with the uncles to fell trees because of this family tragedy. Thank you for the memorial. Susan

Polly and Wm. Lintz
Hi Bonnie,
Do you think Polly Lintz in Southington Cemetery is Mary Magdaline? I looked at her death cert. and it has her mother as Herner and father as Long and husband as William. Hope summer is coming there!

Hi Bonnie,

Thank you so much. I should have looked closer at the death certificate. I'll do a request for a picture and hopefully someone out there in West Virginia can get it.

Thanks again :)

I was aware that the name is Griffith. My caption says: "The Hyde family memorial is in the background, and it matches the Griffith family memorial. Ann Oatley is buried between the two stones." I assume that I wasn't sure which family she belongs with; although I don't remember for sure. I spent a lot of time last year taking pictures of all the stones and trying to help families make the connections. If nearby stones seem to match, I often include them in the pictures. It's possible I just didn't get a better photo of just the Hyde memorial. I can, of course, delete the picture if you wish.

Wanted to be sure you received my reason for recent edit response. I've been trying to locate his burial location without much success. My research places him in Blue Earth MN with a second wife, Almira Le Griffith b 1801. Not sure if this is accurate but it's a lead. I have found so many of his siblings but not him! I have your memorial in a virtual cemetery so I won't lose it. Thank you for the suggestion.

Clarence Hyde
Hi Bonnie,
in Belgium( Waregem ) they started this year the action 'Adopt-a-grave at the Flanders Field American Cemetery'.
This week I adopted the grave of Clarence Hyde.

Now I'm searching all kind of information about him.
On this site I've found (your) reference 55963738.
I've read also the information that you are/were writing a book about soldiers who came from the Warren-area ( and died during WW1 ).
May I ask you if you have some information for me about Clarence?
Thanks en greetings from Belgium!

Hello Bonnie,

I am interested in the George W. Smith memorial you posted. Can you please tell me what page of the book History of Noble County, Ohio this information is on. I have searched through the book and can't find it. I must be missing it somewhere. I have a great great great Grandfather that was named George W. Smith and he fought in the Civil War. I am trying to locate his grave and was thinking that this may be his grave. I need more information to pin it down for sure. I would appreciate any help. I am planning a trip next week to go to some of the grave sites. Thanks for any help Melba
