Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello everyone - I live in Huron County, Ohio, have three living children, and one deceased as a baby (SIDS). I love genealogy and have been doing it for at least 25 years. Barbara Kane Kolanda
TRANSFERS: With any findagrave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer.


Lives are commemorated - deaths are recorded - families are reunited - memories are made tangible - and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information, and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life - not death - of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.

A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always.

- Author unknown


It has been said that every person has three deaths.

The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.

The second is when the body is lowered into the grave, never again to be seen in the flesh.

The third and final death comes much later, when all who knew that person have joined him in the afterlife, and the name, even the existence of that person, vanishes from knowledge.

Thank you, Find-A-Grave, for letting us remember our loved ones, as well as those known only as a name on a tombstone, through these memorials.

Hello -

I"m wondering if you can tell me anything else about this person other than what's listed on his memorial, please. Looks as if he came to town and died soon afterwards. Do you know anything about his war service? Does the cemetery have any records on him? Do you know how to contact someone at the cemetery?

This person may be the original owner of my niece's house in Massachusetts, built in the 1700's.

Thanks for any info you can offer me.

Will do and you're welcome. Rain just plays havoc on some markers. It just started rain when I got there :(

Hi, I took new pictures today and like them a lot better. Let me know if you would like me to remove the closeup ones that are super shiny. Thanks,

RE: Charles & Lorraine Overmyer
Hi, You're very welcome. Not sure I like Lorraine's as it looks like my shadow is right over the cross. It was a bit hard to photo them as the rain makes them really shiny. I am going back probably in a week and I'll see if I can get a bigger one. I carry a flag with me all the time too so if it is a military marker, I add the flag and I am a grateful American for those that have served, will serve or gave their lives in defense of our country.

Hi there, I saw you added this gent to Old Tacoma Cemetery. However, upon looking at the info in the bio that you provided, the cemetery address is for New Tacoma. Have you called to confirm his burial location?

RE: Zachariah Darnell
That makes no sense. I have a copy of the cemetery records clearing stating that he is buried in Sec 2. These records were published by Adams Co Historical Society showing a Z.T. Darnell Co A 45 KY Inf buried by Phillip Gilkison and Newton and Margaret Morgan. I don't show Emma next to him though. I am emailing you the cover page of the book and the sheet with Zachary's name on it.
