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.

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!

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"

Thank you for the wonderful work you're doing.

I would like your permission to use your photo of Mack W. Smith's gravestone on my page. He is my first cousin, 3X removed.

Julie Myers Stephen
Snyder family
Doing research for a friend. She gave me burials for a few of the Snyder family. I made a memorial for a Steve Snyder Memorial# 132798816 based on the burial records she gave me before I came across yours with burial unknown. I don't want to loose any connections. I can delete this memorial if you would like me to as long as the info is on yours. Looks like Steve (Steveson or Stephen) Snyder and his brother Frank Cleveland Lahr married the same person Elizabeth Lizzie G. Emahiser. Very confusing I must say.

Just noticed that your memorial for Daniel Chester Fast (#92459350) is a duplicate.
