I love doing genealogy, the search is the best part of the hunt. Now I was able to help out others and put some photograph's up on the site. I had a great time looking through the cemetery trying to connect people to their families, so they won't be forgotten.|
I live in Ashtabula County,Ohio
Please feel free to use any of my photo's as you wish, they are your relatives !! I'm just helping you on the road to further your family search. I'm very happy to take these pictures for you !!

I do use FamilySearch.org; primarily for veterans buried in Braceville Cemetery (very helpful for the Civil War era). It has only been 2-weeks since I started on Find A Grave; after I found my father's cousin Lt. Wilbur F. Cordell. I had recently added him to a Trumbull County library Memory Project for WW II veterans. Now I am starting to use it for my family members. Thanks!

Thanks for the Craven records setup. I do have two of those obituaries. You filled in at least one date that was uncertain year in my records.
Thanks for the quick update.

Mount Pleasant Cemetery. That was my flip of the coin. Death and Obit records place them in the area. Add that to the kids and . . . Even if the records don't show them in a particular location at least we have the kids linked up this way.

Thank you for your note!
The Ohio birth certificate has the wrong birth date for John. I listed the correct date from the Catholic church records in Slovenia. The death certificate was filed nearly 50 years after his birth thousands of miles from his hometown and they got the birth date wrong.
Thank you for accepting the link to his son.

Your welcome. All I know is what the obit said.
Found it in the newspaper I was working on.

You're very welcome!

I'm not sure how deep into this family you are researching, but I was looking for an obituary and on the same page was the obit for a Winton Harrison Yost. I did some "digging" and I believe that this is the child of John William & Mary Frances Yost.
I've seen a couple of family trees on Ancestry.com but the only thing that comes close is a son that appears in the 1880 Census- a Harrison W. born circa 1878 and nobody seems to know what happens to him. I know some of the children moved here to Johnstown before the parents moved here.
I think Winton Harrison moved here as well and since he died in 1896 that would be the reason why he only appeared in one census- 1880. Anyhow, for now this is just a theory, but I think it's valid. Plus, John and Mary settled in the same neighborhood of Johnstown where Winton died. Given the large size of the city and surrounding suburbs, I think it's more than a coincidence.
If you have anything to contradict this theory I'd like to know your thoughts. Until I have any other strong evidence to the contrary, I'm going with what I have. Unfortunately in this business sometimes we don't always have that "smoking gun" and have to go with circumstantial evidence to piece things together until something else comes along (if ever).
Thanks for your time!
