Are you related to the Holloways or just to Oppy family?

The tombstone looks like she was 2 mos. but hard to read. Where did you get the birthdate of 1870.

David Freeman Family
I have made some additions to David's memorial. This was information I was keeping private to test people who said they belonged to the family. Sorry for not posting it sooner. Thomas Fletcher Freeman is not my post. I am attempting to get the manager of the memorial to correct information. We will see what happens.
I apologize for not being more up-to-date; I have had health issues. My son, Logan has helped me so much. I do not know what I would do without him.
Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Thanks again for you assistance in keeping our ancestors straight.
Sunshine from Nebraska,

Elisha Kendall Oppy
I'm pretty sure Elisha was a son rather than a daughter. Even the Chicago Death Index indicates he is a male.

Hi Linda:

I believe Mary's middle name is Juliet rather than Jane.

Scot Lady
re: Cook & Oppy memorials
I transferred her memorial to you. There are several members of the Edwards family members buried in the same block, and in adjoining lots. I can transfer those memorials I manage to you, just let me know which ones, or, if you like, I can transfer all of them.

In friendship, Evelynne "Scot Lady"

In reference to your inquiry: I received the information from another contributor, Ruth Griffin. She indicated she was her Grand Aunt.

I do not know the location of her grave within the cemetery or if it is marked.

Miss Linda, thank you for letting Mom know about the death date error. It has been corrected. It must have been one of those late nights when she was typing too fast so she could get done quicker. She is grateful for your assistance. Logan Richards

His mother has to be added to his memorial. I cannot add a child to his parent's memorial. As I did not submit John Dawson's memorial, I cannot add his mother.

RE: Oppy Cemetery, Scioto Co.

I'm replying to the message you left for me:

Oppy Cemetery, Scioto Co.
Do you know anything about the history of the Oppy Cemetery? I am descended from David Oppy who had two brothers Christopher, and Abraham that settled in the area. I believe Christopher was probably the one that owned land in that area. He was born about 1784. He had a son James b. in the early 1800's.


Unfortunately, I do not know any of the history of this cemetery. My research has me in that area due to my husband's side of the family.

If you have not already checked into this, you may be able to find info on deeds, history, etc. by emailing or calling:
The website is very informative. If they cannot help you, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Good Luck. I will keep an eye out and if I find anything, I'll get back in touch.

John Skillman Moore and Nancy Edwards are my fourth great grandparents on my maternal side. John Skillman who was first husband of Catherine Beekman, was son of Jacob Skillman. One of John's sisters married into the Moore family; which is how the Skillman name got added. Sherry (Moore) Clendenon is related, her grandfather was Ross Cobb Moore, son of Gabriel Ross Moore and Edna Emma Cobb. Sherry and I share second great grandparents, John Wesley Moore and Elizabeth Keath. If you have time check my virtual cemetery on the Moores and Keaths, you'll find we are related to the Bodys (pronounced Bode) also. Send me an email with your snail mail address and I'll mail you some information.

Linda, quick question was your grandfather married to Louisa Cobb (d/o Albert J. Cobb & Olive Pierce)?
Jonathan Henry Cobb's, (Albert's oldest brother) is father of Edna "Emma" Cobb who married Gabriel Ross Moore.

Linda, I have made the links from Ruth to her parents. I have a question, my family has John Dawson married on August 25, 1842 (Warren County, Indiana) to Sarah Ward. When did Sarah become Sarah Dubois Kidney? Was that her maiden name; or was she married prior to or after John Dawson? My family records have her born in 1816 in New York and dying in 1888 in Illinois. John and Sarah had six children, five daughters and one son. Please correct me for I somehow have wrong information. Thanks for all you are doing to help findagrave connect folks with their ancestors.
