RE: Love this!
Thanks for you comment on my transfer guidelines. I think the "tell me a story" part works really well to help weed out the name collectors. I've heard some very nice stories and have learned a bit about local history I wouldn't have learned otherwise.

RE: Dorothy Karaba Larson
Hmm, interesting, will try to figure that out I could not find her as a child. I hope the two parties with the memorials resolve it.

Dorothy Karaba Larson
Thanks for your email. The name on the stone is Dorothy Ann Swain nee Larson.

In 1982 when she married Dale Vernon Swaim (Swain) she was going by the name Karaba.

She also had been married to a Carbon.

I have a photo of her headstone that was posted on Ancestry and on there it says Dorothy Ann Swain nee Larson.

Just found there are two memorials for the same person with different names, and contacted one of the people and asked them to combine the information and photos.

So I am removing the request and I appreciate your effort on this.

Hi Karen,
I don't believe any of these Thompson's are my family line. So glad you took photos of hard to read headstones. A family member will really appreciate your hard work.

Off to look at the headstones now.

"There are two more stones that I am quite sure are related to yours."

It might be his son Thomas Edward Thompson.

Let me know when you add them. Thanks again!

RE: Ebenezer Curtis
Karen, I was pretty cautious. I wondered when the deputy pulled
in at the highway dept next door if he was going to ask me what
I was doing there. Not that he had any reason to. He was looking
for someone wanted on a warrant. If they cut down the vast no of
trees in the cemetery it could be photographed far more easily. At
some point in time those trees will die and fall on the stones. But it
costs a bundle to cut trees and they probably have no funds for it
You are very welcome! Glad you like the photo

RE: Tony Cemetery
Hi Karen,

I hardly ever check my! Sorry it took so long to reply!

Please go ahead and send Steve Hurin's bio to me. I'm not sure what happened with the Tony Catholic Cemetery but I'll try and find out what's happening. I have many relatives there.

Thank you for all you have done :)

Ebenezer Curtis
Karen, I did find Ebenezer Curtis by shining the mirror into the wooded
area where Susan was. The beam is limited but it does show the name
and year. I had to be careful because it other mirror positions sent the
beam into the neighbor's window and the sheriff was on the other side
of the cemetery putting a handcuffed man into the back of his car

Well, at least you can see the piece of land which is his forever. That's why I do this. You're welcome.

RE: Frederick Thompson
I put a caption on the photo that there is no marker in the family lot. My assumption is that his plot is unmarked because of all the empty space, though I did not confirm with the office.

Rose Cemetery
Karen, I have no clue as to the different counties that you are finding. If I'm remembering correctly, the original burial records in which I have a copy of, lists it in Anderson Township, Hamilton, Co. Perhaps the others aren't accurate information? I'm not finding an Anderson Township in Ross County, Ohio nor an Anderson Township in Clermont County. I don't live in Ohio although I do go up there to visit and have photographed, documented and researched that cemetery. I'm sorry I have no other information for you.

Rose Hill Cemetery
Hi Karen,

It appears that Rose and Rose Hill are one in the same. I have John and Sarah both listed at Rose Hill Cemetery in which the last burial was done in 1935 (going off of memory) and the road was built to split around it. It sits up in the woods with a few stones left. I was able to have new stones placed for three Revolutionary War Soldiers and a marker for a Civil War Soldier whose stones were either broke or missing. There is a larger Rose Hill Burial Park which is in Hamilton, Butler County.

RE: John and Sarah Rose
what can I help clear up? The link is confusing at first and I can't explain why it says "Welcome to Ross County, OH" when the content isnt?? I've seen more records indicate that your John & Sarah Rose lived in Hamilton Co. but the actual borders in the early 1800's may have been fuzzy. It's possible they were living in Clermont Co, rather than Hamilton Co. which is where Rose Hill Cemetery is. You can literally see the county line - it almost lands on the east edge of this little cemetery.

Thank you for adding the photos. This looks like a nice cemetery to be in.
