Cimpea's at Evergreen
Patti: Here is what I know....Rebecca is in Section 14, Range 1, Grave #123 (right against the south fence, she has no stone....I am going to take a pic of her area, as well as John and Fika Dobrei's. The secretary could not find any record for Elie Cimpea, so we are going to try looking under his spouse's name Zivan, hopefully that will give us a location, I am going tommorow to look and try to take pictures....I will let you know....DC

Flowers
I am pretty sure that you can leave flowers, as far as planting things, not sure you would have to ask at the office.

RE: Ilie - Louis Olar
Patti: I was very lucky this morning, Nick's stone was completely above ground, I cleaned it and took the photo. If you click on the picture you will get directions on how to find it. Louis stone is about 2 feet in front of the Olar monument and it was buried about 6 inches down, I did go back and did more digging, but did not find any other stone.

When you talk to the folks in the office they will be able to give you logistics/ interment/ death info on all if not most of your relatives, also they will be able to tell you who has stones and who doesn't. I think it is wonderful that you want to put plaques up for those who don't have any. When and if that happens for Fika and her husband or any other babies, etc...let me know and I will be happy to snap the photos for you. I am going on vacation for about a week or two and will be out of contact. Thanks for letting me share your journey. I hope the picutres bring you some comfort. I just had about 20 requests filled yesterday in an old Bohemian Cemetery in South Dakota for great, great, great grandparents, aunts and uncles so I am very happy that someomne has taken the time to help me out as well....Sincerely....DC

RE: Ilie - Louis Olar
Patti: Hi, I am looking for Nick tommorow, he is buried just across the road in the children's section, I am going early as it requires some digging. There wasn't anything else written on the Olar aboveground monument. Ilie's stone was buried about a six inches down, I dug all around it and couldn't find any other stone. When I have time I will try to stop in the office and see if anyone else is buried in that plot, but I'm almost positive that no one else is. I can ask for a copy of the Interment card, it will list all those buried there. You are very welcome, I try to do what I can, I am happy I found Ilie for you as most of my previous attempts at finding your family members have turned up very little. If I find Nick I will post it tommorow....DC

PS: If you are re-submitting any request that I haven't already worked on, it is always helpful to have location information available, I'm sure they are sick of me in the office! The # is 313.368.1330 ask for Beth or Bernadette, or fax a page of requests to 313.368.9849, you can also ask for copies of the Interment cards as this let's you know who bought the plot, who is buried there and who has markers, or not.

RE: Ollars in Evergreen
Patti: I will look this weekend, but it could be the same case as with Fika Dobrei, the area is so over grown(I actually dug down almost 1 foot), I usually find the area and then dig a trench between the two markers that are still visible. The cemetery records indicate that their should be a marker...but the place isin't taken care of as it should be.....DC

RE: Thank you for your time!!
No problem, I grew up right up the road and attended church there growing up. My dad still lives there and I was out visiting him. The grave is located in what we call the "new" cemetery, which is across the road from the "old" church.

Dobrei's at Evergreen
Patti: I was unable to find Fika (I dug a trench looking for her, that area is very overgrown) I do have photo's of the area if you like, do you think that she might be buried with her husband, I can check on that ....put in a photo request for him if you are interested. I should be back on line at home in a day or two....thanks...DC

RE: Leora D. Ricketts
I looked at the photo I took, and do remember it, but not the exact location. I usually look at all the surrounding graves to see if there is a possible relation. Obviously, nothing caught my eye. If you could get a plot# and grave site #, I could try and locate her. Mountain View cemetery is very large. It has approximately 180,000+ burials. The scary thing about their record system is they have not come into the 21 century. Nothing is computerized. If you go in and ask for a gravesite for a person, it is usually necessary to have a burial date, because all the burials are still kept in giant journals and they have to go back in a library and pull out the corelating book with that particular date. Hope there is never a fire.

Floyd Ricketts - Fletcher Chapel Cemetery
I spoke with a grand nephew of Floyd Ricketts at the cemetery (he is a cemetery trustee) and he believes that Floyd is buried between his father and grandfather, (Ora Thurman and Thurman Ricketts), but has no stone. He also said that there is a family story that he may also be buried on the family farm. Sorry I could not come through with a photo.

RE: Thank you!
Glad I could help. While I was there I looked again for Floyd Rickets, I found a cpl of Headstones in the same area as your great aunt. I can pass along that info if you like.

RE: Hannah Meason Ricketts
Hi Patti,

My husband is a descendant of Hannah and Reason Ricketts. The death year that I entered for Reason Ricketts in Hannah's bio was a typo. I corrected it to read 1834, as my records show.

I do not know where Reason is buried but my notes say that Hannah settled in Wells County in 1837. My guess is that Reason is buried in Fairfield County, OH with other family members, as he died before they settled in IN.

You may want to make a memorial for him in Dovel Cemetery as that is a logical burial place. A note of explanation in the bio section would also be helpful. If you prefer not to create the memorial, then I am happy to do it.

Thank you for the note. It is great to learn new family information and meet new relatives.

Yes, you do, but I happen to have a copy of that one. If you send me your email address, I'll send you a scan of it.

RE: Ricketts in Dovel Memorial Cemetery
The online database for Fairfield County cemeteries is here:

http://www.fairfieldgenealogy.org/research/cem.html

It only shows one Reason Ricketts, and he's buried in Violet Twp. However, I've found a lot of stones in Fairfield County that aren't listed in the cemetery index (i.e., on Findagrave, I've found more than one Reason Ricketts in Violet Twp.). I don't see a
Reason Ricketts that died in 1833, though.

RE: Thank you!
I've done a number of photos recently and can't tell who you are talking about. If you're asking me to take a photo of Shirley's gravestone, I'll need her last name and place of burial. I plan on going to the local cemeteries again this weekend.

RE: thanks for the photo - ora jr ricketts
Hi Patti,

Thank you for the note. Yes, Betty is buried right beside Ora and although there was no request for her, I did take a picture as the memorials are "attached". I will post the picture I have and take another photo showing both markers and post that one as well.

Thanks, @ngel
