Thank you SO much for getting me squared away on this family. I want to get these right. Would you like transfers? I'm primarily a photographer of cemeteries, so am happy to transfer

Blessings for all you do,

RE: Christian Blyar
Thanks for checking. I did find an obit for Lewis Beeler, but the Hub only stated that he died in Massillon and was buried in Shanesville. I can't find it in my notes but I think it was 1922. I will look through my paperwork and see if I can find the exact date.

Christian Blyar
I was just wondering if you came across any Blyar family members in the Shanesville/Sugarcreek area?
My great grandfather was named Christian C. Blyer and he emigrated from Switzerland around 1847 when he was about 6. He ended up in Canton working for Belden Brick but married a Harris girl from Sugarcreek. I found a Bellar/Beller family in Auburn with a Christian C. of the right age, but I have been unable to connect any of them. The father was Christian b/1821, mother Elizabeth b/1824, Christian b/1845, Fred b/1848 all in Swizterland. Then born here Davis b/1852, Elias b/1854, and Lewis b/1857. I have the spelling of Blier, Bleer, Blyar, and Blyer. Lewis Beller was buried in Shanesville. If you have any additional information on this family I would appreciate it. Sincerely, Sue Covert

RE: Joseph Kaser tombstone (d. 1842)
Thanks, Glen. I have a lot of Kaser relatives buried in that same cemetery. I only recently discovered the connection. Even though this one is embedded in the ground, it is certainly very clear!

I would like your permission to use the picture of Joseph Kaser's tombstone on my website Ancestors in Aprons. He is a direct ancestor.
Thank you for doing all this work.

Fixed my pages!!!
Jeepers! Glen, you fixed it! Thank you so much for your clear explanation of how to change those pages so I didn't have to delete the entire page and relink everything! Why couldn't Find A Grave give me that king of advice! Thanks so much!

It may be awhile before I get down to Pickaway County, but when I do, I would be fascinated to take a look at Judge Kinnear's home. Thank you for the information about his home, as well! It would be great if you could tell me what to say to add to his memorial page, regarding his house. Thank you.

RE: Judge David Kinnear #142557875
Glen -
I am so pleased to hear from you! Your memorial page helped me understand so much!
After reading your page, I called Forest Cemetery and learned that the graves had been moved. By then I had linked about a dozen memorial pages together.
I wrote to Find A Grave and asked if it would be possible for them to convert my Judge Kinnear memorial page which says he was buried at Praireview into a page saying he was buried at Forest Cemetery. Obviously, I was trying to avoid having to move all those links.
When I finally got a reply, the person writing back to me said I could just create a new page saying he was buried a Forest Cemetery and could move the links to there (I already knew this). This is what I will do, when I have time. I felt the crucial information was listed on the page. For now I'm dealing with a virus on my main computer.
Thank you so much for the information you listed at your memorial page. I would love to be in touch with you in the future, when I get a few of these problems under control. I hope you noticed that I linked Judge Kinnear's wife to her Koch ancestors. Linking her to her people and linking him to his children and ancestors all happened in one very stellar day!

Hi Glen thanks for your hard work. My Grandmother was Adopted by Albert and Naomi Slife of Shanesville and i have some pictures of her and some other info. Let me know if you are interested in seeing it. You probably know that when Albert Died he had a very large funeral.

RE: Sarah Myers Finney birth
Glenn: Thanks so much for 1.) surveying the cemetery for those of us who are far away and 2.) sharing the insight you have on the stones. I will somehow have to find a way to resolve that the Mom Sarah was only 9 when her daughter Jane was born, per the records. Glad transcription gave her age. Thanks again!

Sarah Myers Finney birth
Glenn: I am descended from James Finney & Sarah thru their daughter Jane Finney who marr. John Wentworth abt 1828 in PA. I was showing a birth year for Jane of 1809 & got "fussed at" by Ancestry because that is too soon to be a child of Sarah, b. 1800. Yet the Memorial shows her to be age 79 at death. Might I ask where the info. came from? AND are you family or one of those wonderful people who record cemeteries for others who can't be there. I have recently discovered this great grandmother's line, and so I would love to get my facts correct. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

RE: Katharine Bolander
Glen, the birth (13 Feb 1798) and baptism (Mar 1798) of Catharina Reuter, d/o William & wife, is recorded at Bindnagel Lutheran Church in Lebanon County. Her baptismal sponsor was Juliana Fortner. The Ridar, Reiter, Raider spellings are typical of how German names got mangled by English speakers. You can find a reference in John T. Humphrey's book, Pennsylvania Births, Lebanon County as well as F. Edward Wright's Early Church Records of Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.

RE: Mary Luke #101026732
No, I can not read the dates. I have the book for the cemetery from the Cosh. Co. Genealogical Society & their info has Mary as dau. of J.& M. Luke, died May 17, 1879 - aged 2m 5d.

That's where I got my info. I was just filling a request & checking the info I had.

Darn! I was so hoping she would be there. I am sure she is in one of them, I will just have to keep searching. She died in Holmes. Some of them moved back and forth between Holmes and Coshocton. Thanks for quick reply!

RE: Enoch Jones 6166743
Hi Glen,

Thanks so much, it is nice to run into a shoe string relative. Being a Newbe I contacted info at Find A Grave & I understood from them I could use that unknown cemetery for those that I don't have knowledge of where they might be buried. Are you saying that there is a better place to list them. I'm always willing to learn if someone takes the time.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi Glen,

I've added parents to Enoch Jones because he is a brother to my great grandfather James Albert Jones Sr.

If you are open to allowing me the privilege of maintaining his & his family I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for all your hard work.
