Many thanks
Many thanks for your photograph of my great great grandfather David Smith's tombstone in Avery Cemetery near Wales Corners in Ohio. I have a photo I took nearly 40 years ago, but it is too indistinct to scan well so I was never able to put it up on the memorial. I'm pleased to see the grave is pretty much in the same condition it was when I last saw it in 1973.

Joseph Haught grave
I WAS wondering if you could help me find the graves of Joseph (1806-1880)and Abagail Franks Haught (1810-1895) buried in Jacobs Luthern Cemetery in Masontown Fayette Co, Pa. I live in Florida, and am at a brick wall in finding out information on Joseph Haught. If I could get the information on his parents I could go further with my family. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks....Mona

Donna J. Follman
Hi, Actually I am blood related to Donna, although not closely. I am one of the many Overmyer descendants. I am not in this for the numbers. I transfer readily when anyone asks, if they are not closely related to me. I visited your memorial for Donna, and it is great. Therefore I am deleting mine and you may keep her for your memorial page. Barb

Susannah Burket #29754717
I noticed an error within the added info on Susannah. I'm guessing it was a typo in both cases and just wanted to bring it to your attention. Susannah's year of death was 1864 instead of 1861 and she was the wife of Benjamin Burket. I believe her maiden name was Brehm.

Thanks for all you have contributed to Find a Grave. Pat

George B Meek #28656007
Medina County Gazette Oct. 9,'72:
The first American-born serviceman to be killed in the Spanish American War was George Burton Meek, born near Clyde, some six miles from where his body now rests before an imposing statue in the middle of the historic cemetery. The son of John and Emma Meek, (Emma was d/o Denton Deyo), the young sailor was educated at Mayville School in Townsend Twp. A stationary engineer before going into the navy, he soon was advanced to Fireman, First Class. He was aboard the Torpedo boat Winslow, as the ship entered Cienfuegos Harbor to entice a Spanish ship from her berth. When the American ship was within 1,000 yards, Spanish shore batteries opened fire, several of the shells hitting the mark. The Winslow took a shell in the mail boiler that warm May morning in 1898, and had to be towed away by another ship. The wounded and dead were taken to Key West, where the five dead were buried near the victims of the battleship Maine. Meek was the first killed trying to keep the Winslow afloat. his body was transferred to Clyde in 1899. The large statue was unveiled in 1912, the same time the McPherson monument was dedicated.

RE: Your parents
Hey Sandy,
Have been into the Freet line and wondering if you would transfer all of Meshach's line to me so I can connect them. They are all over and when I go to the sites, then I have to go through the whole Find-a-grave process for each one of them.

Hope all is well in Ohio!

Thank you so much for transferring John Parker. I believe he passed away at my g-g-grandfathers house. John was captured at the Battle of Chancellorsville, which was a major battle in the Civil War. Thank you for all you do in posting information you find. Barb

RE: David Smith
Thank you for transferring David Smith to me. I last saw his grave on a trip to Ohio in 1973 or 1974 and took a photo then, but it was very out-of-focus so I'm very grateful for your photograph.
