Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to give as much info as I can on the forgotten ones. If you need an extra set of eyes adding to your ancestor, I am willing to help in any way I can.

I usually search for forgotten/unk infants-young children graves as well as pioneer cemeteries. I seek cemeteries that are no longer included in the city records because they have all been long, long forgotten-

If I can help reunite you with your young ancestor or a friend, I am more than happy to do so. I want the very young to be remembered, I would love to reunite them with their true families.

**A very special thank you to Dr. Cynthia Mahaffey, Jaxxon and Ellen Headington for all the wonderful tombstone pictures they have added to my Memorials the past few years. Thank you for going above and beyond for those who have passed on into God's loving arms.

RE: Charley Wilcox of Hardin, Ohio
Thank you so much for our reply. With your help, maybe a Wilcox can be found.

Keep up the good work. It is appreciated by so many folks. I photograph markers and know the work involved.

Charley Wilcox of Hardin, Ohio

You created a memorial for the above and I am wondering if you have other information as to any Wilcoxes (males) that are alive and well who are descended from Ebenezer. I am looking for a male with the name Wilcox for DNA testing. Our Wilcox was Eunice, Ebenezer's (son of Asa) sister, who married a Smiley. The name has been lost in our line, but we have good tracks from Asa of Norwich down. I hope to find a Wilcox who would take the test to match from Asa back.
Can you help me here?

Made the correction
Thanks for sending the additional information. The Union Soldier buried at the Memphis National Cemetery from the WBTS have little information and I continue to try to find info to add. I have no relatives from the WBTS period that are buried there. I began helping with the cemetery for one of my friends from Ohio who had a 2nd great-grandfather buried there. Thankfully some of the states published books after the war showing the place of burial and even though we do not know the exact grave location we at least know they are there.

Beck's of Belmont County Ohio
Hi, Are you relation to the Daniel Beck of Belmont County Ohio? He is my third great grandfather. If you are a descendant, which of his children do you descend from? I am a descendant of his daughter Catherine Rebecca Beck who married Eli Shultz.

RE: Adams/Bronson
Hi Debbie:

Transfers did go through. Haven't been able to do anything - been under the weather for 2 weeks, got a Z-Pak, hoping that does the trick.

Hi Debbie

Columbia Center is about an hour from me.

For further information contact the cemetery clerk, PO Box 819, Columbia Station, OH 44028, phone 440-236-8802.

Located on the east side of Columbia West River Road, a short distance north of Route 82, this oldest Lorain County Cemetery was laid out in 1811 to accommodate 9 deaths from the ague. The site is the cabin clearing of Bela Bronson overlooking Rocky River Valley. Many pioneers from Waterbury, Connecticut, five Revolutionary War Veterans and many members of the militia for the War of 1812 are buried here.
