Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm twenty-one-years-old and live in Ohio.

I've been interested in genealogy since I was a young kid. According to my mom, whenever they would get the newspaper, the only thing I wanted to read was the obituaries!

Currently I am focusing on photographing Fountain Cemetery in Fostoria, Hancock County, Ohio.

If anyone I've added is related to you, but not me, I'll gladly transfer their memorials to you if you ask. I find it to be so rewarding getting a message from someone asking me if I will do a transfer as they are related to someone I added. Being able to say I've helped someone find their loved one--as I added them on here, is why I do what I do.

If you would like to use any of the photographs that I have added on FindAGrave, please ask for permission before taking and using on other websites. Thank you!.

When I first joined FAG almost six years ago it was to find distant relatives--and I succeeded and in the process added many other relatives. That is why I take pictures of cemeteries & post the information on the graves, in hopes that one of the deceased's family members finds the memorial and wants to manage & add to it.

If you would like a family member's memorial transferred to you, please send it via the Correction tab instead of in a message. Thank you!

Listed below are the families that I research and the areas that they are from. Below that, I have listed my deceased grandparents. Feel free to leave a flower. Thanks!

RE: Mary St John
Thank you so much! Oh boy, so Fostoria is in three counties. That makes sense now. I will go back and recheck all the records I found on her and make sure I have recorded the locations correctly. Thank you for clarifying this. It really does help a lot. :)

Mary St John
Thank you for the transfers! I just noticed something not quite right, I see that she and others were buried in Fostoria - my research indicates they were living in Fostoria, Seneca Co., not Hancock. Please let me know which is correct. Thank you!

Oh my Goodness,
You are an angel. Thank you for doing what you do.
I see your name all over some of the research that I have been trying to do. I just joined ancestry as well. I am so glad that I found Rose B. Ferrell on F A Grave. Thank you for posting it. She was my Great Grandmother, my Father's Mother. I have a picture of her that I would like to try to post. I posted her memorial to my fb but just to myself. Sorry I didn't ask permission 1st. :(
If you could transfer some info. to me either here or on ancestry. I would appreciate it.
I am a novice at all of this, any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you again,
Teresa

COWDEN, Laurel Eva
Laurel Eva (Kinney)Cowden (1898-1919) was one of my Grandfather (Ervin Eugene)Kinney's younger sisters. My understanding is that she and a baby boy died during or soon after childbirth. She also had a daughter, Etheline, who lived (for a time, at least) with Laurel & Ervin's parents, Eugene Grant & Jessie Ethel (Bell) Kinney. I would be pleased to take over management of my Grand-Aunt Laurel's Find A Grave Burial record, My email address is" tirogirl43@gmail.com

Thank you for the wonderful work you're doing.
