I have been interested in genealogy since I was a teenager and part of my searching has led me through countless cemeteries along the way. I have many many photos which I will try to add to this site as time permits. I think it's important to keep a photographic record of tombstones. Just in the 30 years or so I have been researching, there are stones that have since become broken or illegible. I think this site is a great idea and a wonderful way to share with others. I hope my contributions on this site will be as helpful to someone else, as the many kind souls who have been helpful to me in my family research through the years.
Sarah Rice/King Rice I am looking for proof that Sarah was the daughter of Samuel King and Abigail Rice. All I can find on Ancestry is that she was the daughter of Thomas King and Elizabeth Clapp, but that information came from private family trees and has no source to back it up. I feel that you probably have the correct parents on her memorial and would like to correct the erroneous information on WikiTree but they require a solid source. Can you please help me by providing me with something...an entry in a family bible or whatever you may have. She is in my direct maternal line through her daughter Tamar Rice Wells. Thanks so much!

James Drummond Cynthia, I would like to add the excellent story you put on the find a grave memorial page for Corp James W. Drummond to his Fold3 Honor Wall page. I will credit you with providing the information. I hope that meets with your approval.
Balch When you have time would you check to see if you want to make the changes to the Balch information I added through the edit memorials.. If you need more information please contact me. Thanks. Jim Wierman
Oran Christian Church Cemetery Hi Ms. Rice, I found your pictures of the above cemetery on Find a Grave. I'm wondering if you have access to any further information on the church itself. Specifically, is it possible that in the 1880's it might have been known, either officially or commonly as the Christian Church of Sidney? I have information that a pastor of that church,in that time period, was a Melvina Beery Wilgus. No other church in Sidney seems to match, and I know that Melvina's parents, Elijah and Susannah Clark Beery are buried in this cemetery.
Thank you very much for whatever help you might be able to provide.
Zenas Lindley and Family I'm actually working on part of this family right now, rebuilding my family tree. My Lindley Family Starts with Jennie Alice Lindley Freeman, who was my great grandmother. Her father was John G. Lindley (I have conflicting info on his middle name.) His father was Daniel Lindley who married Elenore Globle (again not sure on last name as I have conflicting info!). Then goes back to Zenas and the rest of them. Does ANYONE out there know what happened to John or know at least what his middle name was and what Elenore's maiden name was. I'm also trying to find her line back too. I take it I have some cousins on here I knew nothing of!!
Nancy Lindley, wife of Zenas Linley I have researched the Lindley family for over two years as they are family members. Since I live in Cincinnati, their community is not far from here and I am very familiar with its surroundings and resources.
Thank you for all of the work that you have done to honor our ancestors. However, I need to call attention to the fact that the information for Nancy Lindley on Findagrave is not sourced; i.e. the Nancy whose biography is there is probably not the Nancy who was married to Zenas and lived 1762-1840 and was born in Washington County, PA. Zenas and Nancy came to Ohio from that area in 1808. Often, researchers confuse the two women. There is no verification that Nancy (1755) married Zenas Lindley. Most researchers are leaving the parentage of Zenas' wife, Nancy, as an unknown as there is no verification. In the listing of residents of Washington County, PA, there is a David McFarian/Farlain who lived in the community at the time that Nancy (Zenas' wife)is documented to have lived there. There is not Daniel McFarland listed in the community. Some researchers think that David is the father of Nancy Lindley. Documentation is important. Otherwise, the information is fiction. If you will look in Proceedings of the Worcester Society of Antiquity, Volume 21 by the Worcester Historical Society, Worcester, Mass. it states that Daniel McFarland's daughter, Nancy, was born in 1755. If you will look at the Lineage Book (Daughters of Colonial Wars), you will see that it lists Zenas' (veteran) wife, Nancy ______ who died in 1840 in Piqua, Ohio. Piqua is (Spring Creek Township) in Miami County, Ohio. The DCW lists their reference as New Jersey Colonial Documents.
