|Bio and Links|
Even though I really enjoy researching my family history, my purpose and calling in life is to serve as a missionary for my Lord Jesus Christ. I serve through World Gospel Mission (Marion, Indiana) in Bolivia, South America, which has been my home since 1986. I am an ordained minister, a seminary professor and have been somewhat of a writer. |
I was born in Ohio, spending much of my growing up years in that state. My wife is a New Englander and our two children were born here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
My interest in genealogy began when I started sifting through old papers and boxes of photos following the death of my maternal grandfather in 1979. It is a fun hobby of solving mysteries of the past and learning more about history.
I hope some of the information and photographs that I'm posting will be a help to others in their own quest to learn more about their family roots. If you think we share some common ancestry, I'll be pleased to share what I know.

|Rick Platt||RE: Platts|
I descend from George and Mary Ann (Hockenberry) Platt. Alex and George were brothers.
I would like to compare notes. I recently found myself adding Alexander's descendants to my tree. I'm in Ohio too.
Ever find out where Alexander and Sara are buried?

Sorry, I can't be any help to you. I copied the cemetery from a cemetery book, someone else added the picture of the stone. Kay

Mike Brown: When I posted my request for the gravestone photos in Forest Cemetery, I was advised not to expect a rapid response; these things take time. Little did I know that God was already dispatching one of his messengers from another country to fulfill my request. Thank you ever so much; I am truly delighted with the photos that you provided. May God richly bless you and your family for all of your good works in His Name. Thanks again, Family Historian.
