Eve Gill
I visited Bethel cemetery in Jeromesville, OH today and could not find a stone listed for Eve Gill married to George Gill. The only stone that I could find was the one pictured for an Eve Gill married to an I. Gill. Eve Gill and Isaac Gill's stones are located beside one another. To the right of Isaac is the stone for George Gill. To the right of George is a large open space with no markers. If there was an Eve married to George (as you mentioned in your photo request), is it possible she is buried beside him in that empty space? I took a photo of George Gill's marker with the space and uploaded it to his memorial so you could see it. Best wishes in your search!

RE: Musser Graves at Mountville Cemetery
For the last few days, I've been working on clearing up information for this cemetery. I got together with a member of the church to loom at their records. It was a waste of time. The only info they have is who purchased the plots. No records of who is buried in each plot or information about them. So I went to the local historical society. Printed out Worners record of the cemetery transcriptions. When the information was recorded I think back in 1930. The records indicate that the Musser stones were not legible then. Eighty years later is has only gotten worse.

RE: your photo request for Elizabeth Warner, # 129955763. I posted one a year ago, which is still there. What kind of photo are you looking for?

RE: Musser Graves at Mountville Cemetery
I haven't forgotten you. I've been trying to get with the person at the church to go over some other information. Just hasn't worked out so far.

East Harrisburg Cemetery
Harry, Maude Mohn, and Mark, Anna Hoffman are all buried on the same lot (probably the same stone) at East Harrisburg Cemetery. I'll try to get out to take a photo of their grave marker this weekend.

Hi Pam,

Thank you for this link. I have read the info. and am glad to have it. Needless to say, I won't be using shaving cream anymore! I'll try the auto sun-reflector idea to see if that works, next time or get some onion-skin paper & pencil and try the rubbing.

Sorry I gave you bad advice.

Hi Pam,

I just left a message for Tom Reece about another matter; however, I took the time to read a few of the current messages sent to him.

The one you sent regarding "learning how to do a grave rubbing" caught my eye. I have just learned a new "trick" that really worked for me when I did some readings of old stones recently and it won't hurt the stones...

Get an inexpensive can of shaving cream, some paper towels or old wash cloth and take a bottle of water...or a gallon jug if you're doing lots of stones. Put a fair amount of shaving cream on your fingertips and gently rub it over the letters then gently take your hand or paper towels/wash cloth and gently go back over it to wipe off any excess shaving cream.

The shaving cream will stay in the grooves of the letters (providing the letters haven't totally disappeared) and you can photograph and/or transcribe the writing.

You have to work rather quickly as the shaving cream begins to evaporate, too. When you're finished, you can poor some water of the stone and clean it off some. The shaving cream actually has some 'cleaning' properties, too.

I found the shaving cream 'trick' to illuminate things on the stones that I did not see with the naked eye! It was pretty exciting.

I hope this helps you read the stone in question.
