D. 1-31-1851 56 yrs 10 mo 12 d old. Wife of James. His stone is standing and has a lot of readable and unreadable words on it. I am hoping hers is next to James.

Frank RItter photo request/Spring Grove
Hi Eileen,
According to Spring Grove interment record for Frank Ritter, he was born in Ohio on Oct 6,1855. His parents were John and Catherine Ritter (no maiden name for Catherine listed). He died in Cincinnati on April 7,1912, he is listed as "widowed" but does not list a spouses name. He died of "pulmonary tuberculosis". I looked for his marker today but was unable to find one for him in Sec 9 Space 1602. That space is unmarked.
Sorry,
Jenny E.

McKiney / McKinney Cemetery
Hello,
My husband's Grandmother's maiden name is Ruth Howerton. About 1 1/2 yrs ago, I went looking for a cemetery I saw mention of on Ancestry.com. I found the McKinney Cemetery very overgrown and forgotten and in a bad state overall. I contacted the township trustee in Spencer Township, Harrison Co., IN, and after receiving permission (took almost a yr.) from the Hoosier Elec. Co., the Harrison Co. Cemetery Restoration Team began clearing the brush and the scrub trees. Yesterday,(Sat., 4/5/14), my husband Tim, our daughter Sierra, and I were part of a 9-person group that began probing for stones that belonged to empty bases we saw in the cemetery. There were three legible stones found - George W. Howerton, Alonzo McKinney(1/2 of this stone was already above ground and the 1/2 with his name was found yesterday), and Charles Howerton. It was a really productive, rewarding day. Needless to say, we did not complete the work. However, there is another work day scheduled for this Saturday and hopefully the weather will be warm enough for us to begin fixing the stones with epoxy so that they will again be standing. If the Elec. Co. does not maintain the cemetery, my husband and I will make sure that it is maintained until we are no longer able. It is my sincere hope that our daughter(who actually located two of the above mentioned stones and felt that family history bug bite her) will make sure that the maintenance continues for a very long time. I wish I could tell you that we found stones for all the burials we feel are there, but we did not. Unfortunately, since it appears the land may have been excavated and cattle may have roamed over it as well, we may never find the stones or know who is there. The Harrison Co. Cemetery Restoration Team is wonderful and they will help us get this Cemetery as good as it can be. I thought you would like to know about our work.

Take care,

Josie Ash

Thanks Eileen.

Do you know if they had other children? Some report there were 6. For example, see:

Shelby. Was a member of the M.E. church but later joined the Baptist church. I have Mary's DOB: 1-31-1851 56 y 10 m 12 d and I will go to Degraff sometime next week. They are in Section D of the cemetery. It is about 6 miles from my home.

RE: family
1880 census
Leonard and and wife Elizabeth were still living in the same place but the McKinneys were all gone from that area or at least no longer on that land.

RE: family
I believe Archibald was one of the land owners him and Thomas. Thomas was from Pa and was old enough (24 years old) to have been able to bring my grandfather at age 7 across Ohio.
