Bio and Links
I have recently began working on my family geneology and am working on both my mother and father's families as well as my wife's family. They include the Mussinan, Callendar-Graff, Mischler, Fryar, Bruist and Shiltz's for my father's family centered in Brown County Ohio and the Arey-Peterson, Chalk/Schalk-Haubner and Rogers-Joslin families for my mother's family centering in Adams and Clermont Counties in Ohio. The Chalk Family extends across the Ohio River into Campbell County, Kentucky.

My wife's family includes the Young-Rabe, Thomas, Evans and Jones families. Her mother's side are from Jackson County, Ohio and her father's side from Hamilton County, Ohio.

I have always been interested in family history and feel that it is very important to preserve it for future generations, so joining Find A Grave has been very helpful in my research.

Peterson tree
Very exciting to find a family member. I have the 75th anniversary booklet put together by the families. When my grandfather passed away, my mom picked up in the genealogy research for the Peterson's and the Bryant's my grandmother's side.
Grandpa passed out those booklets to all of us. I as a teenager at the time finding out that our lineage came from Sweden was very interesting. I was a art student and so Grandpa had our family coat of arms in the book. As a gift I painted one for his office and a wall size one that I still have today.
Mom has been working hard on the family trees. On my last visit she printed me everything for Peterson and Bryant. Authentication for the entire tree is something I hope for. One of the Bryant lines is a long line of Scandinavian viking kings and earls.
I have just found the last picture from this site from my great great grandfather and children or sibling info.
As far as I know mom does not have this, Its not on the tree she printed for me.
Pretty sad really that I could go my entire life without ever knowing that I had never met another Peterson in my family. Just grandparents, aunt, my brother, myself and my parents and my three first cousins. LASTS IT!!! Ive only been to Ohio a handful of time two were funerals. The reunions I found out were Bryant.
Mom told me that three months ago. You would think at my age I couldn't feel that stupid. More I felt cheated at why had we never had any contact with the rest of the family. Well I want to try to find other members.
As far as the tree I've been trying to do my tree on Ancestry and use the print out she gave me. She already has it in there, we don't know how to get her tree to mind. I've done a DNA test, it's in processing right now so it will be 6-8 weeks till I get it back.
If want to sent me some more question

Hi Michael,
I found your site by accident. But just wonderful. I came across photos of my grandparents and great grandparents grave stones. I noticed you have Peterson in your family. I am a Peterson as well, Williams by marriage. My grandfather was Herbert Lee Peterson, my grandmother was Doris M Bryant Peterson. I have absolutely no connections with the Peterson family other than my immediate, but wish to. I really would like to make some. If you know some or if you are in my tree please let me know. Flora/Florea is also listed as one of the families in our tree.
Thank you so very much.

I put her in Hickory Ridge with her husband and my GGrandmother Sarah (Johnson) Tomlin to whom the Bible passed down to. It went to the daughters of next generation.

yes, it is neat but sadly she only listed her immediate family which is my line and not her parents or siblings. I will post the marriage page on Find A Grave so you can see it. There is also the Death page and Marriages page. The Bible is very old and the binding gave way and my grandfathers use of duck tape did not do it any favors (made it lose value).

Thank you for your quick response. My mother has Lizzie's old Bible and in it they also spelled Vollmer as Fulmer.

Lenore Murfin
I would guess that Lenore is with her parents. The cemetery was walked and the book prepared in 1993. Since Lenore died in 1997, she is in the updated part of the book which gives Section 15 Lot 130 for her. I have a map of section 15 and Lot 130 is also toward the north side of that section, but there isn't anything to equate lots and rows. However, it seems likely that they are together.

My husband had a Peterson ancestor who was in Adams Township of Darke County, OH in the 1850 census, but by 1860, he was in Kansas.

Murfin Photo Requests Evergreen Cemetery
The Evergreen cemetery book shows Minor and Ethel Murfin in Section 15 Row 23 toward the north end of the row if you want to add this info to your photo request.

I am updating them right now as we speak. I did not go look at my edits, yet, I am updating them from documents. If you send me a message through one of the memorial through a suggest another correction. And leave your email address, I'll email you directly if you want.
