Hello! I'm a graver, an artist, baseball entusiast, and an active participator of American Civil War living history presentations. Find-A-Grave is an excellent resource for determining one's heritage, family tree, and genealogy. Sometimes the smallest thread can lead to a successful path in defining someone's lineage instead of a dead end. (pun intended)
You can view some of my artwork at this site: flickr.com
I attempted to E-mail you today, but got a bounceback.
I would like to quote part of your *Fiind A Grave* biographical sketch on James Wear "Bug" Holliday. I plan to quote it in a footnote in a biography I'm working on, of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy. Hoy and Holliday were teammates, and Holliday made some public comments and infuriated Hoy (implying that Hoy was a cheapskate).
As best I understand, "Bug" was a nickname given to players with nervous, excitable, kooky personalities.
I was much impressed by the Flickr gallery of your drawings and paintings.
I have not yet been to Cincinnati, but as part of the "prep stage" for the book, I've been exploring its history and growth online. Hoy loved Cincinnati and made it his permanent home.

Nathan Guilford Nathan Guilford (1786-1854) buried in section 36 lot 38 is the son of Dr. Jonas Guilford (1759-1809) #22954242 and Lydia Hobbs (1760-1849)#22954252. He and his wife Eliza Wheeler Farnsworth had six children, one of whom is Apolline Guilford (1825-1876) #79055265 who married Pierre Clement Tetedous (1820-1870). I have noted that there are two Nathan/Nathaniel Guilfords with same dates and buried in same spot in the memorials, one is #788944062 but is the same person. Would you be so kind as to correct these records.
Charles Henry Turner your Memorial I am wondering if its possible to be related to my family, would his mother be Elizabeth Turner Foster by any chance for his father charles Foster seem to match my family records but I amnot sure what his occuptation is and Charles Foster seem to be only one person in that area if he matches to Elizabeth Turner Foster then mother is also buried in same cemetery in 1850. I would love his obituary if anyone has it thank you :)
Rebecca Gatten Tanner You have placed a photo on Rebecca's memorial page, but it was taken from a distance and appears to have lots engraved upon it. I would love to see a close up of the stone so I could read the engraving. Is this request a possibility? It's in the Ephraim Tanner Cem, Florence, KY. Mary Giera in Jacksonville FL
