Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on my family genealogy for quite awhile and am extremely grateful for those who have contributed headstone photos since my relatives are scattered across the whole United States!

My Taylor family has Scottish roots but lived in Ireland for awhile before coming to Londonderry, New Hampshire in 1722. Some left New Hampshire and went to Nova Scotia with the Archibalds and others, and then some of those Taylor folk came to Franklin County, Ohio, in about 1798. From there, the Taylors spread out to Columbus, OH, Ill, IN, Iowa, Kansas, NE, and beyond.

On my mother's side, I am researching the Brown's originally from Vt. and Conn., who came to the Grand Rapids, MI, area, and the Irwins who originated from New York with future generations in Byron Center, MI, as well as the Van Buskirks, and Beedy's from Ohio,

I would be happy to exchange information with anyone who has connections to these families.

Because one never knows the hour we may go to join these ancestors, please contact my cousin Rhonda, #47237795, if I should fail to respond for a long period of time. She has my permission to manage all of my maternal memorials upon my passing.

RE: Victor P. Jordan
The only help I can offer is that you visit the Lucas County Historical Society web page. It's one of the finest I've ever seen!! They make it so easy to imagine what life was like for the Jordans.

David Sharp/Green Lawn, Col. OH
On your request for a photo of David Sharp's gravestone, you said you wanted to know if he was buried near Samuel and Eliza Sharp. He was. David's marker is unreadable save for the top where it reads DAVID T. Besides Samuel, Eliza and David, there were markers for:
Margaret Sharp Brown
Frank N. Sharp
and there were small markers like David's for Samuel and Hattie.
I will post photos for those that do not already have them.

RE: Alan Watts
I tend to feel the same way. I get ambitious about an issue like this, and maybe I'm biting off too much. Maybe between the two of us, we can do a passable job. My time is kind of tricky, so if I don't send you anything right away, feel free to start without me. The traffic on FindaGrave seems to be increasing steadily, so I'm sure we'll get some other input, especially if we miss the mark on anything specific. I'm amazed that someone hasn't already submitted a bio, but most people have probably searched under "famous." I know how difficult it can be to achieve famous status on Find A Grave. Well, that's really a side issue. I'll try to send you something soon.

Mary Lemming at Forest Cemetery
I looked for her burial location in the digital database but she isn't listed. There are 5 Lemming burials: Cloysie (Section C7, Lot 8, Grave 2111), Grover (C7, 13, 2385), Melvin (OC, 555,8523), Gilbert (OC, 6 9973), Mertie (X4, 28, 1). No dates of death or birth are listed. If you want to talk with their office to confirm if Mary is truly there, the number is 419-936-3081. Thanks!

RE: Matthew Taylor, 1755-1811
Which cemetery are you looking at? I thought that it was Madison-Truro Cemetery on Noe Bixby Rd. Columbus, Ohio Madison township. This cemetery had been relocated to it's present locaation about 80 years ago.

RE: Joseph M. Taylor
Hello Pat
Please just make a photo request for the Taylor cemetery stones you would like a photo of. We will be in the cemetery on Monday March 10, 2014 and will take the photos you requested then.
Thank you.

RE: Elizabeth Taylor Long
I haven't found his final resting place, but I bet he's buried at Long Cemetery. There are some tombstones down there that are hard to read, when it warms up a little, I plan on going back to the cemetery and taking more photos with the sun at different angles to try and read the stones. A bunch of his children are buried there, so I feel he and his wife were buried there as well. Thank you for your help with this family! I appreciate it! Kathy

RE: Elizabeth Taylor Long
Hi Pat,
I know it seems like a stretch, but she is the same Elizabeth. I read her bio, but I think someone was mistaken. The bio also stated that she died before her mother - but if you look at her mother's memorial, you can see that the mother died first.

I took a photo of her tombstone at the Long Cemetery near Belleview, Calhoun county, Illinois....she and her kids immigrated from Ohio to Calhoun County, Illinois. She is on the 1860 census in the household of her son, John W. in Calhoun County, Illinois. Three of her children lived in Calhoun County, Illinois: Matthew Newton Long, John Wilson Long and Caroline Elizabeth Ball. Most of their descendents are buried in Long Cemetery near Belleview, Calhoun County, Illinois. Matthew was the postmaster in Belleview for years. I imagine she left Ohio after her husband and children there died and headed to live with her living children in Illinois.

I hope this convinces you! Thank you, Kathy
