Eliza Garner Tilley

Thank you for your work on FindAGrave. I have a question about your memorial for Eliza Tilley. Your memorial says:

Birth: 1838
Peterborough, England
Death: 1905
Lyme Township
Huron County
Ohio, USA

Eliza Tilley (Garner) was the daughter of John and Phoebe Garner, from England. She married John Tilley.

I was wondering about your sources for her birth in Peterborough, as well as her parents' names. Eliza and her husband, John, are two of my brick walls.

Thank you for your help!

My great-great grandfather we know was baptized in Huron County. We have his baptismal certificate. We believe he was the 1st born here. I know there were quite a few Haases in the Huron County area. Here is what my brother and I have gotten from our little bit of research. Maybe we are cousins. :)

Dan I did not know you were into genealogy. Christopher began as a 4H project in 2004 and it has been a family obsession since. (Even won a clock trophy in 2009) Sam takes it as well. Glad to see you here. Keep up the good work and happy hunting. Kristie

Thornton Family
Hi Daniel,

I am researching my mother's side of the family, Thornton. Here's what I have so far:
Father: Robert Henry Thornton, B: July 3, 1911, D: April 14, 1936 (she never knew him as he died 3 months before she was born).
Grandfather: Claude Thornton, B: May 18, 1888, D: Dec 18, 1933.
Great-Great Grandfather: Henry R. Thornton, B: Jan 10, 1860, D: Feb 25, 1947.
Great-Great-Great Grandfather: John James Thornton, B: 1834, D: Nov 10, 1892.
All are buried at Ft. Meigs Cemetary. All but John James Thornton were born in the Perrysburg area. John was born in NY (still trying to find where, along with his brothers Israel, Stephen B., James and Reed.
I was wondering if you had any information and/or photos you could pass along. I'd love for my mom to know her fathers side of the family as she never knew any of them. Thanks and it's great what you are doing for folks so they can get to know their history. ~Karen

Thank You So Much for Taking Such A Great Photo of the Tombstone for David & Malinda Sampson in Krout Cemetery. Looks like it was a little dark out when you took it, or is it just that dark in the back of that cemetery??? But the Photo Came Out Great, and the Fence is so White!!! Almost looks like you had special lighting...

Thanks A Million, I really appreciate it!!!

Lee Cemetery
Thanks you for all the photos you took on Mar 18th of the Kelley family. I am searching for the surnames of Kelley, Cole, Lane, Brown, and Houck amongst others. These families settled in Hancock County after migrating to Huntingdon County, PA from Baltimore County, Maryland in the late 1700's- ealy 1800's.

You have taken other photographs fro me before, and I remain very grateful. Thanks!!

Hi Daniel,

Thanks so much for the pictures of William E Adams' gravestone! You really went 'above and beyond' to capture all the markers and flag holders, and to get good lighting to read the inscription.

We very much appreciate your contribution to recording the histories in our cemeteries!

Thanks again ~

I can't thank you enough, I have been searching for him for a long time. I didn't realize there were people out there that would take photos, so I am very pleased to find "Find a Grave". You have provided a very valuable service, and thanks for helping me and all the other people like me.
I am grateful for the volunteers, so please know your kindness has earned the respect of a grateful long lost relative in Michigan.

Thank you, Daniel, for taking the photo for me. I doubt if I will ever get to Ohio again since we are now on the east coast.
Thanks again, Jean
