You have my permission to use any photos that I have taken, for any purpose.|
If there are any photos I have taken that you would like a larger sized image--just let me know. I can e-mail the larger resolution image to you.
I am currently working on entering names and photos to the Oak Grove Cemetery in Harrison county, Iowa.
I have been to this cemetery 27 times, and have logged about 100 hours in the cemetery .
As of: 5 Dec 2013
1036 - names I've entered
1580 - total for Oak Grove
Some of those names I have taken from the 1930's W.P.A. Cemetery Registration Project.
If any of you find a name I entered from the W.P.A. records, should not be in Oak Grove--please get in touch with me. I know that the W.P.A. records may not be 100% accurate, but I can only go by what they entered. If there is something wrong, please let me know.
I currently live in Council Bluffs, Iowa but I am originally from Richmond, Indiana.

|Charlene Sinclair||RE: William Ashton|
|Pam Witherow||RE: Elizabeth Pitzer|
I don't know much about the family at all. I did find several entries on RootsWeb giving John and Elizabeth having an unnamed female child, but no dates or any clue to give proof for Mary Ann. Then I found that in the 1830 Census in Scott, Brown County, Ohio it gives John and Elizabeth having a female child "five and under". Only John's name was given for the family as far as I could make out. Then I typed in Mary Ann Pitzer, 1825, Virginia and Highland Co., OH into ancestry.com, added her spouse, William West and found that a lady named Carol Willis came up with the family tree with Mary Ann Pitzer (with matching data) as John and Elizabeth's daughter and married to William Smith West, the one you probably found. Upon finding this I would think that you have linked her correctly, but I still found no REAL proof anywhere else. Carol's birth years for the children do seem to make sense though that Mary Ann may be the "unnamed female" on RootsWeb.
You have done a wonderful job adding pictures to the Memorials where Mary Ann and William are buried. Isn't it a rush to find a stone that had it not been for luck would have been lost to time and erosion? I have found two and there is no feeling like "saving" a piece of history!!! I live in northeast Missouri and we have had plenty of erosion from about three years in a row of nothing but rain--lots of rain. The last two years have been a little better and the weather made it a better time to go cemetery walking.
I don't seem to have been much help and I hope you are able to one day find positive proof, but I think I would leave her linked to John and Elizabeth--that way if "someone out there" knows that the link is incorrect I'm sure they will tell you and give you the names of the other parents should that be necessary.
