I have no relation to most of the memorials I manage.

Make sure to submit all corrections using the Edit tab. If you are a family member, I will typically transfer the memorial to you. You know more about the individual then I do. I just ask that if someone who is even closer to that individual reaches out to you, pay it forward and transfer the memorial to them!

Also, this site wouldn't be what it is without all of the excellent photo volunteers. Thank you, Thank you! As a reminder to photo volunteers, if you go to the cemetery to fulfill a request, try to look for any stones that have the same surname near the one you are photographing. Take pictures and upload those too! If they do not have a memorial already created, create one, and upload the picture. That may always help in someone's quest to find where family members are buried.

Ok I have a Carrie Bowers who was also in the same plot as Elizabeth, Ida, and S.A. Bowers. I am going to add her into the Cemetery.
I also am adding another photo to S.A. Bowers profile. There is a marker to his left that is face down. All I was able to make out on is E.B.? if there are dates they are buried. Not sure if this is Elizabeth's footer maybe, it would be in the right place for it. Also there are what looks like two other markers or stones that are buried and in pieces near the base of Elizabeth & Ida's shared stone.

William Skiver
This is all the info I have on William. Did not know about the children and have found a third. Also found Malissa had two subsequent marriages plus her date and place of death. I am confident that Malissa B. was married to "our" Willliam because of the property sale in Hocking Co. William and Malissa sold the same property that William had purchased before Jane's death.
None of the records notes a cemetery. Nola

William presumably died between the conception of Victoria and the time of the 1900 Federal Census when his widow was living in Nelsonville. There is a Hocking Co. death record for William Skiver who died in Logan, OH in Dec. 1893. He had been born in Pennsylvania in 1804. In all likelihood this is the subject of this paper. The information would have been given by Malissa who would not have been totally familiar with Williamís age and place of birth. Given her age, she probably thought he was much older.

August 26, 1903, Melissa Skiver married Lewis Nanna in Athens Co., Oh. Her parents were given as Jacob Buttamore and M. Caffer. He was the son of Zebulan and Julia Lewis Nanna. [Marriage and Death record from Family Search]

RE: Lee Vian
Forgot to tell you....I am working on that mystery. Here is what I know....Doing from memory here so I might get a name wrong! The husband, I believe is buried at Fairfield. There is a burial permit for him? I called the gentleman that is the cemetery's board president and has all the records. He is related to the Vian's, too, by the way (I'm related to no one here!!HA!). He has no permit for Mabel. I remember locating a census record for her and that she was living down in Marion. I remember that I also found that she had a daughter in that area, too. Maybe Judy? She is buried in the same cemetery in Marion. Now I called that cemetery and the guy there didn't have much info to give. His comment was I took this place over about 10 years ago and it was a mess. It was once an IOOF cemetery. He did say that Mabel was buried there. Now the question is, did the husband's body get moved. He couldn't answer that. I am going to make an educated guess that it wasn't. So I would think that Mabel's stone at Fairfield would be a cenotaph and visa versa for the husband??? What do you think?

Kenneth Arnold's grave is unmarked. He is next to Donald Roseman, another Massillon fireman who died at the same time. I posted a photo of Kenneth's burial spot.

RE: Ward Skiver
There are two Greenlawn cemeteries in Ross county is in Frankfort, Ross, ohio. you might try there.

I think the photo backlog is from no one having grave locations. I asked the office people to look up all the grave locations and put in edit requests to add them. Should be all added in a week or so. donna

Memorial Markers
I decided to created a memorial for each child so that you can add a picture if you find the markers. I have linked their parents. Thanks again.

St. Luke's
I am also related to practically everyone buried at St. Luke's. We may be related. My bloodlines inlude Sapp, Durbin, Arnold, Blubaugh, Colopy, Logsdon.

George Sapp and Margaret Logsdon Sapp are not listed in the cemetery records. They may be buried at the cemetery and not listed, or they could be buried on Sapp land. According to a booklet on the history of St. Luke's Church, George's parents are thought to be buried in the area of today's One South Mickley Street, Danville. Maybe George and Margaret are buried with them. If I ever come across anything on George and Margaret's final resting place, I will let you know.

If you want more information or to exchange email addresses, I would do it using the edit tab to keep it private.

Since I walked Evergreen in Auburn and didn't find the stone. I have gone through all the books for other cemeteries and I can't find her listed. I am assuming that there is no know marker for her. Would you like me to report the issue under the claims and have it removed or do you want to cancel it? Dan
