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!

Snyder Family
Helping a friend with her Snyder family. Could not find any info on the husband of Josephine Soufflet Snyder. All records has him as Nicholas Snyder. Came across a 1900 census of Josephine and all the children however the head of the house is Isac A. Snyder. I figured it might be the father in law but the years of marriage matches the marriage record of Nicholas and Josephine. Story has it Nicholas died in New York and some of the children were placed by adoption like Clayton Snyder the youngest was adopted and name changed to Clayton Strawser. Any info would be greatly appreciated. My friend would like to contact you however she doesn't have youe e-mail. So if you reply to me please e-mail and I can get your e-mail for her. Thanks

John McDaniel/Polly Shumate
There is a real dilemma here. Two marriage records exist for John McDaniel. One is his marriage to Polly Shumate 8 Aug 1812. The second to Rachel Shumate 4 Jan 1820. The 1850 census in Ohio says he is married to Polly, but how can that be?
