The only question I have is the names. Ruth is a last name, it is used as his middle name. It was two persons-William Ruth Horner and Samuel Horner. You could leave out the Ruth. There birth/death are William 8-24-1881 to 7-30-1964 and Samuel 1831 to 4-26-1909.
Thanks you are much better at this. I am having difficulty in updating records. Some change in 24 hours. Others I have tried days ago and no update or reply. This is using the edit tab.

The book is Our Horner Ancestors William of Fayette County, Pa. son of Thomas of Baltimore County, Md. Family genealogy ca 1700-1973 and Allied Lines by Virginia Horner Hinds. printed 1974. page 204 William Ruth Horner and Samuel Horner (these are grandfather and grandson) had the stones of the family, who had been buried in the old Shepperd (Shepherd) Cemetery and the old Greene Academy moved to the family cemetery. These stones were toppled over and some were being used as step-stones. Being impossible to locate the location of the actual graves, just the stones were placed in the family cemetery.
page 206 Sarah Horner d/o Samuel and Mary (Cree) moved from Shepperd 7-25-1843 aged 5m 8d, Mary Horner 1st w/o Samuel (nee Cree) moved from Shepperd 1805 1-17-1852 aged 46y, James Horner s/o Samuel and Mary (Cree) moved from Shepperd 4-17-1842 2y 6m 22d. The Horner Cemetery, Fayette County, where they were moved is difficult to reach. My mother and older family visited it in early 1960 via tractor and wagon. They would not allow us children to go. The book I reference is in the Uniontown (PA)Library Genealogy Room. I took one there in 2003 or 2004. I believe they already had one.
Hope this gives you the information you wanted. Please ask if you need more information.

You have three listings-James Horner, Mary Horner and Sarah Horner. From information in a book Our Horner Ancestors by Virginia Horner Hinds, she has noted that the grave markers for these three persons were moved to the Horner Cemetery, Greene County near Carmichaels. Only the markers were moved. The reason being they had been toppled.

Thanks Matt. While I am not related to John, I am always interested in Civil War vets. I have added the Civil War information to his memorial. Please be on the lookout for a picture of john D Warfel in the 71's Ohio. He was my great grandfather and in for the duration of the Civil War. Ernie

Thanks for adding the photo and glad you had it in your group of pics. I found her name and 3 others in another book I had which was a reading done in 1980. I think these names pretty well complete the burials here. I'm so glad you went rabbit hunting! :)

RE: Freeland Cemetery, Wayne Twp, Greene County
Yes, I'll be very interested in the other graves you may find as I researched my relatives and it seems like that whole tri-border area used to be one big county so it's possible my and your relations may be in some of the same cemeteries.

RE: Freeland Cemetery, Wayne Twp, Greene County
I think I may be mistaken in the wrong county. I originally got this information from a Jefferson family tree. When I got your message, I went to the old link and it was moved to a Marshall County Genealogy website:
I'll be making some edits in the future. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

Hi Matt, that was fast! thanks for reuniting this little family. Would you mind adding maiden name of Garrison to Zibiah Geho's name please? I'm not familiar with area but that's too bad that the original finders didn't photograph any stones. Now they are likely hidden in some woods and might never be found again. Might someone affiliated with Wayne Township be able to locate perhaps? Thanks for your efforts. Maybe one day you will discover it!

RE: Jordan Strosnider

In addition to the virtual cemetery, I'm writing a book on the 18th Pennsylvania Cavalry. My gg grandfather served as a Sergeant in the regiment for 3 years and it peeked my interest. Several hundred pages later, I can tell you just about anything you want to know about the regiment. I've found many intersting stories and facts by researching what happened to the men after the war and this Find-A-Grave virtual cemetery is a gold mine of information.

I have a collection of many photos of individuals and some group shots from a reunion. What are you looking for?

Jordan Strosnider

Thanks so much for the Jordan Strosnider memorial photos. I've corrected the dates on the memorial based on the headstone dates. I've also linked his wife Susan to his memorial. Thanks for helping me honor this Civil War veteran.

In your Greene County cemetery hunts, keep me in mind if you run into any graves marked with "18th Pennsylvania Cavalry" or "3rd Provisional PA Cavalry" (the 18th was merged at the end of the war with the 22nd PA Cav to form this provisional cavalry regiment). I'm working on a virtual cemetery of the regiment (see the link on Jordan's memorial (#73154334) and have only located about half of the regiment's soldiers. Many many of them came from Greene County.
