Bio and Links
Bio Photo If other contributors would like any of my photos placed on their memorials deleted so photographs and other important information can be added, please let me know and I will be happy to delete .

Sometimes it seems to me that a few members have lost sight of what the purpose is on Find A Grave. To me it's not about how many memorials/photos you add so you can increase your numbers more than another member, it's about remembering and honoring a person, to share information and photos.

I enjoy adding personal information in the bio area. I enjoy listing veterans of the "War of 1812" and "Civil War" and early pioneers of the United States.

I always try to be respectful of other contributors work. If you find I have made a duplicate please let me know. I strive to be accurate. To me it's all about quality not quantity. I see each memorial as a person, not a number.

If you would like to contact me privately , please use the edit button to leave a note or leave a message to contact you... I give my e-mail when I feel it is appropriate.

RE: Rosser family transfers
The two older family graves were essentially duplicates. Rather than deleting them, I changed the Bio section to have a link to the pages where the real data is maintained. Does this seem appropriate?

RE: Joseph Burdg and Martha Burdg Manuel
Glad I could help. I had asked my mom if she had heard about any hotel fires at the turn of that century and she couldn't think of any. Glad the library can help you.

I retook the photo of Joseph Burdg and deleted the first one. You can read the dates now.

RE: Kezia Bloom Double Stone
Okay on adding the marriage info.
But what an odd, really odd thing having 2 headstones in 2 different cemeteries...are they all on Find A Grave? We now have 4 people who had 2 stones? Kezia, my Rebecca, and 2 more Blooms.
Maybe there was a problem with the first cemetery so there were second stones placed in the second cemetery? Weirdest thing I have ever seen.

RE: Joseph Burdg and Martha Burdg Manuel
If you decide to come up, plan enough time to go to the Tiffin-Seneca Co Library in Tiffin, OH. They have a large genealogy department too.

Print the map of Fostoria's cemetery so you can find the section. Frank and Martha are in Sec G, but there are two parts to Section G (the sections are divided by a road). Frank and Martha are in the southern/smaller section G, lot 33. They are in the 9th row from the west.

If you go in the middle entrance (by the blue lady fountain), take the drive that is basically going straight (it curves a little to the east), stop when you get to the short post with the letters F & G on it. Walk east from that post counting 9 rows. They are around 6 graves in. There is an empty space north of Martha.

If you can't find it and you find a cemetery worker (they have other duties in Fostoria too.), tell them that Carol said it's the smaller section of G lot 33.

Have fun history hunting.

Kezia Bloom Double Stone
Strange that this also is in the same time period and Rebecca & Eric's double...are there cemetery records at either place that might shed light on this? I did notice that one stone has an "m" at the end of Kezia's name...but don't think it makes any's one person, most likely.

RE: Eric Matchett
Okay, but she has only one other stone, that is in Pioneer....there were 2 memorials made for the one burial....that's being worked out and will be corrected.
This is the strangest thing....thank you for your time and help ....Since Rebecca died during the Civil War, that may be a reason for double stones...? Will keep you posted as to any details we may find.

Again, thank you so much

RE: Eric Matchett
Thank you again for contacting me on this puzzle. After Johannah died in 1839, Eric married Rebecca the following year, so they were married quite a long time. Eric & Johannah had a son George who died in 1855....he is buried over in Pioneer cemetery; and there is a headstone in that cemetery for Rebecca also....this is really curious.
Any info you can provide would certainly be appreciated. Personally, I haven't come across something like this during my years of research.
It's strange.
