RE: Bartholomew Crowley

Good call. I was using that relationship as a working hypothesis. On further research, I see now that Bartholomew did not immigrate until 1933. I will delete that relationship from my tree. Although, I still suspect he might still be related to Thomas Crowley...maybe a nephew instead of a son. Thanks for keeping vigilant.

John Kimble
Actually, Wyandot County didn't exist when he was born, lol, but probably was where it was located later. Never mind. His parents married in Seneca County in 1827, and lived in Crawford, Crawford County, in 1830. So John would have been born in one of those locations, which also could be different names for the same place. So many name changes and new counties branching off the parent counties.

John Kimble
Per your demands, I have removed my duplicate of John Kimble, which I created in 2011, a few months after you created your memorial for him. I am so sorry I didn't notice the duplication. Please add the links to his parents which I had but you did not. I also have his military file, which I will hunt down to make sure we have all the acurate information for him. It may have more information on Rebecca which you seek. He did marry also Isabell Motry, which could be added to a bio for him. I have his death record, but I don't know if that is appropriate to put on the memorial, but I have that. His military file does have birth place as Wyandot County, rather than what you have. I have that information copied into my genealogy program.

You are correct. I have sent a message to Mr Olsen. Sorry

RE: Could you please remove the photo for Catherine Shambach Riegle?
George Riegle is my 4th great-grandfather. In fine-tuning distant relatives in the tree, I came across Catherine's grave photo yesterday from Clymer Cemetery in Hancock County but the creator of your memorial page for Catherine has her buried in Castor Cemetery in Hancock County without a photo. Are you certain that there is a Catherine buried in Castor? Has there been any communication from a volunteer photographer stating that they found the plot but no headstone? I can start digging around a little since it is my neck of the woods (about 1.5 hours away) but I don't want to duplicate research you've already crossed off the list. If you have an e-mail address, you can reach me at mine listed on my profile. It may be easier than leaving these long messages. Now that I know there are 2 Catherine's I will go through George's stuff first and make sure I have the correct info. By the way, George's son Elias had a daughter Mary Justina (#13798020) who married Thomas Wolford (#13798023). Thomas had Oscar Wolford (#91994080), who had Harley (my mom's father #91993315). That's how I came across the Riegle stuff yesterday. I was looking through F-A-G to see what grave photos I didn't have on my tree. Lastly, have you went through any of the old county history books? I just bought the CD of History of Hancock County, Ohio ~ Published by Chicago: Warner, Beers, & Co., 1886. Elias, George, & Catherine are mentioned on pages 800-801. I will have to see if Wyandot County has one too. Thanks for the heads-up, Pamela

villarosa records
Are any of their records, either church or civil, online anywhere like family search?


Added by Jami on Mar 19, 2014 1:33 PM

I am looking for advice on locating records in Villarosa. Can you steer me in the right direction?

RE: You have created a duplicate memorial

Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused you and your family. I do double check to see if the memorials are already added and sometimes Find-a-Grave doesn't bring them up. As you requested I've deleted the memorials and pictures.

Blanche Beis
Hi Jeff! I can confirm that her name was "Beis" pronounced Bees. I'll bet you don't know that Seymore Steigerwalt did scenery paintings at local establishments. One of these still exists at the Plank Road Tavern in Scutch, and they say there was another at the old Windmill Inn at Alvada, OH. Seymore's daughter Anna drowned in the Sandusky River in the summer of 1934. It happened east of Scutch at a popular swimming hole called X-ray beach. I've been told that the title was because the only dressing room was "behind a bush". It was downstream from the Mexico Bridge and behind Camp Pittenger. I've never heard any details but they say there were 3 other girls with Annie that day and one was Juanita Pierce. My uncle Walter Tanner and Bob Vogel were in Annie's class. Bob said that in the first grade, the teacher Mrs. Ruehle made Walter "stand in a corner" because he had kissed Annie Steigerwalt! LOL

I see you thanked someone for adding Alberstadt memorial photos.

I have connections with the family too.

Please send me an email.

I notice you maintain a few Ekleberry memorials. Are you related? I have a digital copy of the "Ekleberry and Milum Family Book" that was compiled in 1978. If you're interested, shoot me an email via my profile! :)

Hi Jeff

I assume you are related to the Richardsons'. I am distantly related to Norman by the following:

Norman Roscoe Richardson and Dr. Jean Marie Quentmeyer are 3rd cousins 2 times removed. Their common ancestors are John Lowmaster Sr and Ann Amelia Schultz.

I would like to hear from you. Please contact me at my email address listed on this site.

Todd Reigle
Hi there,

My name is Todd Reigle, great grandson of Phillip and Ruth Long Riegle. I am the grandson of their son Ernest. Ruth died in 1983 in Lima, Ohio and Phillip died in Elida, Ohio in 1977.

I noticed on one of hte pages there was a note regarding Washington Riegle who died at Stones River in Tennessee. i have been to the battlefield and they have him listed as buried in an unmarked grave on the battlefield. Thought maybe the family put his name on the grave marker at castor since they may not have known where he was born.

I am a rookie at this so, I'll pass along anything I can find.

You're welcome! I also took some photos for Ruth C. and Philip A. Riegle, who were buried in the same location. I'll post those as well, but need to get some other requested photos up first.

RE: Reigles
on Commodore Perry Riegle ( 27884959) I have a death date of 28 October 1880. The info I have for his wife is Olive J Mulholland. I have no dates or other info on her.

RE: Reigles
Connection made. Some info for you.....
Ruth C Riegle (27885067), w/o Phillip Abraham Riegle is Ruth Catherine (maiden name Long)

Phillip (27885024) died on the 8th of Dec 1977. At least that is what I have. Not sure where.

I don't have a death date for Ruth C, but a note that says it was in 2007. Very OLD lady?

Have a great weekend.

RE: Steigerwalts
Hi, I have linked you Steigerwalt as requested.

Mary Jane Reardon Steigerwalt's Ohio death certificate says buried in McCutchenville... So I would be guessing that she is with her husband..

Catherine Riegle
Jeff I went to Castor cemetery and I found all the Riegle's in family lots. I did take all the pictures of this families. I am going to forward them all to you and I will have to contact the trustees to see the record of which plot is her. I have a idea which one is her but it is unreadable.There is to many in this cemetery that is unreadable but will contact you later on my findings.

RE: Thank you!
Hi Jeff, You're most welcome, glad to help.
In front of the mausoleum, there is a wall with all the service men's military plaques. Then you either go to one side or the other of the mausoleum to find the person you are looking for. I didn't think the mausoleum photo would come out at all. The Messinas are all the way up top, about 15 to 18 feet up.

Samuel or Salvatore Messina
Hi Jeff, I just put a photo on Samuel Messina's memorial. After I put it on I realized the name was Salvatore Messina, but it has the correct dates. If this is not him let me know and I will remove the photos.

RE: Rosanah Whitelock Srodes
Hi Jeff, then I think we would be fourth cousins once removed, as Rosanah was my fifth great grandmother. I have no documentation confirming her death year. I would greatly appreciate it if you could email me a copy of the obit you found. Someone put in the records that they obtained for Methodist Cemetery back in April or I would not have found her and Solomon. I put in a photo request and four months went by with nobody going there to take photos. I finally made the two hour drive in August and photographed the marker. It was only then that I had confirmation of the spelling of her first name. I was also pleased to find two of their Culp grandchildren that were buried there. I'm sorry to report that I do not remember how I came about the names of Rosanah's parents. I did not document this in my tree. I will try to find this and let you know. Matt
