Thanks for transferring Celina Smith memorial, Joel. You have done an amazing amount of work and it is greatly appreciated! I like how you Included your Ohio surnames in your profile. I plan to copy your idea and add my surnames to my profile -- great way to find cousins! Kathie Heller

Orlan c Smith
Does he have a wife beside his grave. The wife of Orlin C Smith in Michigan is not buried here as far as I can tell, so wondered if she is with him in Ohio

Orlan C Smith
I live in Michigan and am researching a Orlin C Smith who was born in Newbury Ohio 1850. He lived in Michigan about 1870 to 1900 plus. Died sometime before the 1910 census. I am not finding a grave for him here, so I wonder if your Orlan C Smith is one in the same person. Got any answers?
Appreciate any help

RE: Andrews - Howland Township Cemetery
No need to transfer them to me...I am not related to them or anything like that. I pass by that cemetery once a month when I go to my doctor's. I stopped there on my way home and thought I'd take some grave stone photos for Find-A-Grave. The Andrews were the first ones on the list that I could find. I am going to add the photos for Samuel and Lorena Andrews now and will add the others over the next few days. I have 12 photos in all and it seems to take forever to optimize them.

Andrews - Howland Township Cemetery
Hi Joel - I have several photographs of the Andrews family gravestones in the Howland Township Cemetery. Would you like me to add them to the memorials, or I can send them to you so that you can add them?

I added the info from to her memorial which gives "estimated" year of birth 1850.
I think the date on her gravestone is more accurate than the "estimated" year of birth.
Thank you for the added info. I did not have the full name of her husband or her parents.

RE: Isaac Minglin
Dear Joel,
Thank you! Question, do you know of anyone who can go and take photos of their graves? How does that work? Again, many thanks for all your work!

Isaac Minglin
Dear Joel,
Thank you so much for all your work!! I see you are the person who added my 3x ggrandfather Isaac Minglin. Is there a headstone for him? I just updated his information on your site. I am new at this so hope I am asking the right questions. There are other family members there as well. Isaac's wife Elizabeth, brother Richard (1970-1863), brother Aaron (1803-1876), and brother John (infant-1806). There might be others but these are the Minglins I am aware of at this time. Any suggestions and assistance would be greatly appreciated. Again, many thanks for all your work.

RE: Automated edits

Yes, Joel, I quite agree that it is quicker for both of us to send you the info via the automated system, but knowing your interest in the documentation (which I completely share), this seemed like the only way to share that information with you. How would you like that source material sent to you in future? In a separate message from the automated corrections? I have run out of time today, but if you have not already processed the corrections I sent, I will resend them through the automated system tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

Above subject is buried in Braceville Cemetery and I was wondering if you have a pic of his marker or any info. regarding birth date and possibly his spouse or parents. Back in those days we had a lot of people with the same first names and it's tough to identify with the proper lineage.

Thanks for all the hard work and dedication.

Gotthardt Family Hillside West Farmington Cem
Appreciate your efforts in West Farmington Hillside Cemetery. The edits I submit are for direct family members. Records and information are from my 86 yr old mother Elizabeth Rose Gotthardt daughter of Herman and Katherine - I appreciate your ability to honor my edits. I will be sharing the website with her again in July 2014. I realize Charles Adam Gotthardt's stone has one birthdate - but this is my mother's uncle, known as "Crazy Charlie" as he was bitten by a water moccasin and lived, but was never quite right in the head. He lived with my grandparents and my grandfather's brother due to his inability to live alone. If you have death documentation for him I would appreciate any you would share. The Gotthardt's helped settled Hiram Ohio. Thank you

Hello Joel,

You have previously posted a picture of the cemetery entrance and the DOB & DOD of Everett Madden (he's my great grandfather). I was wondering if you by chance know the location of his grave. All records prior to 1933 were destroyed in a fire. I really appreciate any information you can share!

Thank you!

Could you hold off on that deletion? I can't locate the other memorial and my email copy is lost in space. It may take a couple of days before it appears. I want to be sure I didn't make a mistake! Thanks.

I have added photos for Ella A Snyder and John B. Snyder which include dates and husband/wife notation. The sites are next to each other, therefore, I assume these 2 were married. You may want to add the information to the memorial

Re: Bartholomews in Hambden Township
Hi Joel:

I wonder if you can help us. We have traced a family ancestor to Abigail Williams Bartholomew, the second wife of John Bartholomew. He was first married to Abba Lucia Smith Bartholomew and John and Abba are buried in the Hambden Township Cemetery along with Cornelia J. Bartholomew who is Abigail Williams Bartholomew's daughter. We can't seem to find a record of John's second wife's burial. I cannot read the inscription on the photo of Cornelia's tombstone - but I wonder if you might know what it says. Also, is there any way to find out if the Bartholomews have in their plot another Abigail? Many people have assumed that Abigail and Abba are the same person because their names are so similar. We would love to hear from you! Keep up the good work you do!

Esther Miller
Esther Almira Hart Miller was married to Erastus. I see that she is buried with Noah Miller and Betsey Maria Hart (her brother-in-law and sister). Noah is also the brother of her third husband Erastus. Is he buried with them? I am trying to find where he is buried as he is suppose to have died in West Farmington too. Any help would be appreciated. All of these folks are related to me.

Need to make a correction. Clayton and Emma's mother was Mary Ann (Kibbee) Jenkins (1819 - ????) I have not found her Find-A-Grave memorial.

Mary Ann (Clute) Jenkins Find A Grave Memorial# 76953662 was the wife of Clayton J. Jenkins Find A Grave Memorial# 76953666
