Robert is my 4th ggf, too
Hello Steve,
Thank you so much for your research! I would like to get a copy of your book since I just discovered that the father of my great grandmother, Elizabeth J Guthrie, was Robert David Guthrie.
Kind regards,
Sandy Day

RE: Alice Jackson - Mt. Hope cemetery
No I am not related to Alice Jackson or her family. I was just photographing stones at Mount Hope. If she is a relation of yours I will gladly transfer management of her memorial.

RE: Robert Guthrie/Jane Caldwell
I just was looking at my research and I realize that I did find what looks like the will and probate records for Elizabeth Shaw's father Gawin. If you don't already have it, I would be happy to send you my excerpts and where I found them online. The other thing I have is the will for Robert Guttery and Samuel Gutherie. They look like the correct guys. You probably have all this stuff though since I found these after following clues from your Find a Grave pages. I haven't typed out the Guttery/Gutherie excerpts but I can send you the links.

this was all stuff I dug up in May of this year and hadn't processed it yet. I will try to make sure it gets in the next update for my website.
have fun : )

RE: Robert Guthrie/Jane Caldwell
Hello Steve,

I don't have specific answers to those questions. The two sources that I do have, which probably won't help you are the book "From Gille Chriosd to Gilcrest" which led me to the Guthrie's and some letters found by a Diane Dykstra. These last were Civil War letters written by Dr. Guian S. Guthrie, son of Samuel and Elizabeth.
Both of these can be found on my website

direct link to Gilcrest book:

also another copy of this transcript is located at

and Diane's letters:

I hope to update my website soon,

Mary Ann Guthrie
I have a marriage license for a Mary Ann Guthrie Married to Jacob B Lawson and they had Child by the name of Elizabeth Ann 1868. I'am somewhat confused how can the same woman be married to 2 different men in the same town county and die the same year and buried the same place only her tombstone states Mary Ann Lawson wife of Jacob B Lawson but the husbands tombstone beside her says Jacob M Lawson. Mary ann Guthrie Lawson is My Gr Gr Grandmother and Jacob B Lawson is my Gr Gr Grandfather. do you think mary was married 2 times? could we be cousins through her?

thank you-
There are people who look for doctors for specific reasons, so adding their titles makes them easier to find. So thank you for tending to that.

RE: Nice photos, Karen !
Thank you and you're very welcome. Did you want to add the infants? Or I could add them and then transfer them to you. Whichever you want.

RE: William Spears - (Scott Union Cem)
Currently we are shooting other cemeteries for cemetery custodians and as soon as we've completed those cemetery projects we'll consider re-shooting headstones.

RE: Hi

I see that you don't care for "Guttery," the frontier spelling of your family name.

(1) Do you happen to know where Jesse and Hannah Finch are buried?
• There is no information about their place of burial. Given that their deaths were when Ohio was being settled, I suspect they were buried on their own land.

(2) Do you happen to know the maiden name of "Hannah" (wife of Jesse?)
• Hannah, wife of Jesse Finch, Senior—maiden name still unknown. (Given that Jesse Finch, Junior, appears in his marriage record as "Josser," it may be that no one has recognized Jesse, Senior's, marriage record.)

(3) Can you tell me how you found out Jesse's parents were: Nathaniel Finch and Hannah Schofield?
• Claude B. Thummel, "Descendants of John Finch of Connecticut" (1965); extensive list of references. See:

(4) How did you find out her maiden name was "Schofield"?
• Nathaniel Finch and Hannah Scofield were married in on Dec. 15, 1743 in Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut. See: "REGISTRATION OF BIRTHS, MARRIAGES AND DEATHS OF STAMFORD FAMILIES," Compiled by Reverend Elijah B. Huntington, Stamford, April 6, 1797

(5) Finally....any VITAL dates on Jesse's parents--and where they might have died and been buried?
• According to Thummel, above, Nathaniel Finch was born 29 Apr 1722 in Stamford, s/o John and Sarah (Lockwood) Finch; living in 1768 (page 52).

A happy Thanksgiving to your and your family,

Eric / blueheron14

There are several stones that are too faded to make out the names. I tried taking pictures in the hope it would be clearer on a big screen. No luck.

RE: Wlodarski
We just returned a short while ago... and to be honest, didn't see any stones with that name. However... don't give up! It was extremely hot here and maybe I can recheck when it cools some! Okay? Thanks!

Robert & Leila had eight children and one was named Bill. Have not had any contact with the family in a number of years, but the last I heard Miss Leila was in a nursing home. If you have any info on this family, would appreciate your sharing it.

RE: Confused !
We were unable to find them and I accidentally uploaded another Wodarski. Sorry 'bout that. Their stone must be either broken or not readable as we spent quite a bit of time looking and that's a small cemetery. Marianne

RE: Thanks much !
You're so welcome, Steve! It was tough to get a decent picture. I'll keep trying next time I'm down there.

RE: Nice work on Sarah (Newell) Mears !
Hi Steve,

I took that photo in November of 2011. It looks like her name could be on the back side of the marker. I suspect that the front side was essentially illegible so I didn't photograph it at that time. A photo in the early afternoon, with a strong sun, could make a big difference in its legibility.

Now that I have an idea of whose name may be on the front, I'll recheck it when it's photography weather again (summer 2012). That marker is in one of the older areas of the cemetery and there are many broken or severely worn markers nearby.
