|Bio and Links|
Becky Jacobs graduated from Elgin High School. 7 generations of my family is buried in the Prospect Cemetery. (Live in Abilene, TX since 1977). I have worked on genealogy research for 40 years and just completed my 19th family history book. I published "The Scrapbook of Prospect Ohio Pioneers" in 1988 from clippings from my Great Grandmother Rebecca Jane Bevis Hedges of whom I was named. My dad, Carl L. Jacobs was a Prospect township trustee. My great grandfather Stephen Bingham McWherter was the Sexton at the cemetery from 1921 until his death in 1923.I have checked these records against death and census records. Over 8500 obits from my cousin Sarah Longnecker Reichardt's scrapbooks, she gave me years ago along with obits from the Prospect Monitor, Richwood Gazette and Marysville Journal Tribune obits will be added as time permits. Thanks to Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood in helping me to honor those that have gone before.|
My dad, Carl also served as a trustee at the York Cemetery in Union County, Ohio. I went to Byhalia-York from 1st to 8th grade before moving to Prospect. May 19 2011 permission was granted from Leona & David Gustafson to use their pictures of the York Cemetery. This has added greatly to the memorials. Thank you Leona & David for your years of taking these beautiful pictures, we know the families will appreciate them. We are all working toward the same cause to
preserve the family.
In 1991 my friend Sherry Bowen Barger helped me copy the old cemetery record books. Sep 2011 classmates Larry Osborn & wife Norma and Terry Redmon helped take 4800 pictures of tombstones. Cousins Sylvia Bevis Harmon & Jean Bevis Clingenpeel shared copies of obit for this cemetery.
Jim Issler is helping me on this project. He has gave me files for 1923-1949 that I have edited
Ralph Issler (Jim's dad) is Superintendent at the cemetery since 1988 and we appreciate the great job he does.
My goal on Find A Grave is to link families together NOT to just add names. I have spent 1000's of hours looking up birth,marriage and death records to have the record as accurate as possible.

I sent you the obit for Mr. Stricklin.
Hope you get it ok.
|Cindy Knight Schneider||RE: B Mayfield at Prospect|
If you want to use those photos on Find A Grave or any other site, feel free.
I see you posted the obit for Edward Moore in the Clairbourne Cemetery in Richwood. Appreciate being able to see it. Thank you for the hours you put into this site.

Thanks for transferring my gr-grandparents.
|Steve Voss||RE: Jabe B Stricklin|
I'd almost bet I can find an obit or a death notice at the least. If not, I'll contact the funeral home to see what they have in their files.
Since Mr. Stricklin died in San Angelo, I'll at least try; however, it may be a couple of weeks.
Make a note and send me a reminder in 2 weeks if you have not heard from me. I'm having a neurosurgeon working on my aching back next Tuesday, & hopefully I won't be laid up much longer.
If you'll notice, the photos I've been posting are from some I took in 2012. Using this time I've been laid up to work with older photos I have on flash drives.

Is the Mayfield you entered at Prospect Cem. a relative? I have a photo from Prospect-very old. On the back it says B Mayfield and Family. I was wondering if this could be. Looks to be just b4 the turn of the century. Has him, his wife and a baby. Any thoughts?

I noticed on William Verity's memorial page that you had a note of parents names of Emma. I just found his marriage to Emma Hall ( maiden name was CRONK). Emma and William were married in Athens County, OH on December 26, 1912. Thanks for all your Find a Grave memorials. They sure have helped me.
