Benjamin T. Swickard
I would like to ask what source have you that Benjamin T. was a son of John and Margaret Nichols Swickard considering that according to your death date, he died before his alleged parents were married. Also, what is the source of the death date since it doesn't appear to show on the stone. Also, it would be quite odd for parents to name two sons Benjamin at this time in history even though one died young.

Thank you.

RE: Mathew Taylor
I don't have a record of his burial but I will ask my cousin to see if she can find anything as she has many resources in Pickaway County, Ohio.

RE: Mathew Taylor
Elizabeth's father is here: 32529615

vanman is the person who manages the memorial for Mathew Taylor that was married to Rebeckah Archibald. I recently requested that he transfer the memorial to me so I wondered if you were the same guy or not. I'm guessing that Ann McKnight is buried in the same cemetery as Mathew, her husband, but there is no stone for her. Do you know anything about her?

RE: Mathew Taylor
Are you also known as "Vanman". I'm trying to remember what exactly I contacted you about. I am hoping to get Mathew, husband of Rebeckah Archibald, who is buried at the Taylor Cemetery in Renoldsburg, Franklin County, Ohio, transferred to me or at least, a link to his father put on his memorial. That way, I can click all the way through the 9 generations of my paternal Taylor ancestors! I have much of Elizabeth Watkins descendant information. I'm still trying to find her brother, Isaac and his family. Do you have any information on him? Thanks!

I am a descendant from Humphrey Nichols son of Samuel Nichols Sr. I am wondering if you have any info on the Nichols line. Samuel Nichols is the furthest Ive got on my line. Any info would be great. Thank you.
